Everyone I know has been enjoying watching the Olympic Games. My twitter feed, which is typically filled with fashion world updates, has been non-stop overflowing with tweets about the different countries and their respective Olympians and I’m so happy to see it. Olympic Spirit binds us all in a special way.
Many of our favorite designers have jumped on the bandwagon as well, showing their spirit and support for their home countries. Now you should include Gucci on that list because they’ve recently released their GG Flag Collection, and while it coincides with the Olympic games, this collection also celebrates the launch of UNICEF’s “Schools for Asia” initiative. This program aims to provide access to quality education for disadvantaged children in China, and 25 percent of the price of each item sold will be donated to the program.
When on the US version of the site there is only USA and Italy versions available, the international site shows options for Great Britain, China, and Germany as well. At first I wasn’t sure what I thought about these bags, the design is in your face, but it is also fun in a quirky way. I guess with all the country pride I’ve been feeling and seeing others feel, this line drops at the right time. I’d be proud to carry the USA GG Flag Boston bag and the fact that 25% of the proceeds go to charity, well that is just icing on top of the Gucci cake. Browse all and purchase via Gucci.com.
