East meets West


Fashionistas who adore premium Italian fashion labels now have more to splurge on. You can now add this new offering that Gucci is planning to release, into your wanted list. The Italian luxury brand is planing on collaborating with Yoshio Koda to release a rather interesting line of bags. Using traditional Japanese silk, Sendai-Hira, the 84-year old Koda shall produce bags of premium quality together with feel of the 400-year old Sendai-hira tradition. It is also believed that Koda is well respected for one of the few to have carried on this old Japanese tradition. The works of this Japanese artisan shall go on sale in September with a price tag of 420,000yen, estimated at $4200 with sales donated to the Sendai reconstruction efforts. This is definitely one of the highly valuable products that Gucci will be producing and we havent seen a really good one for quite a while. Collectors should take this into serious consideration, not forgetting the fact that it is also one of the few that isn’t monogram based. What we are seeing here is tradition fusing with modern luxury. Such great combination extrudes a timeless design aesthetic beyond the value of any price tag. Would you invest in one?
