Gucci Hiking Chic Is Here
Yes, hiking chic is here right now, not that many of the high end designer pieces out there will actually see any mountains, more like the terrain of a chic urban high street.
Many of the Pre Fall 2018 collections are blending their signature high fashion designs with items more typically seen on mountains such as oversized shorts with cargo styling, fastenings, hiking pants, zippers and snaps, fleece jackets, sporty nylon anoraks, performance-inspired trainers and trekking boots are all to be seen. Our favourites are the rather gorgeous Gucci leather and canvas trekking boot which at £795 is not for trekking through any mud we know, more like the dangers of Bond Street on sale day!
With a current focus on outerwear, Gucci Pre-Fall 2018 brings the theme to the forefront while staying true to the house roots. Inspired by the hiking world, these boots are presented in a dynamic mix of materials-rubber, suede and the original GG monogram canvas from the 1970s. A recurring detail of the latest collections, the Gucci logo is displayed in the graphic font of SEGA, a fixture in the colorful arcades and games rooms of the eighties.
And after all Gucci is life and life is Gucci.
