Part of a continuing trend, Gucci is the latest brand to open a new mega-flagship store in Central. Located on the corner of Queens Road and Ice House Street, it’s directly across from A Bathing Ape and down the block from both Harvey Nichols and Joyce (a famous local couture importer.) It’s also an easy stroll from the Louis Vuitton flagship store that grounds the opposite corner of The Landmark shopping center.
This Tuesday was the celebratory launch event for the new Gucci shop. It’s been a busy week for high-end brands with a Tod’s event and also a Vivienne Westwood fashion show on Thursday. Friday I’m looking forward to an event organized by CLOT for Electronic Arts, the game company. Famed Hip Hop producer Just Blaze will be d.j.ing!
