Our Monday dose of curiosities from the past week which we have chosen to keep you company for your morning coffee today.
Everybody Wants the Geeky GUCCI T-shirts!
The fashion house of Gucci joined forces with British illustrator Angelica Hicks for a limited-edition artistic project. Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele has selected a few illustrations by the talented artist, and these should adorn a limited collection of T-shirts. The result – 11 unique designs for a total of 100 unisex T-shirts, each of which is packaged in a vintage-style metal box.
The box also contains a card that explains the uniqueness of the collection and encourages the customers to engage with the brand through the hashtag of the project #guccigeeks.
The collection of T-shirts will be available from 25th May at www.gucci.com and in the brand’s stores across the USA and Europe.
Paris Hilton Created the Manual of the 2000s
In an interview for W Magazine Paris Hilton created a sort of a manual with the trends of the 2000s. The list of the hotel chain inheritor includes the tracksuit (“if possible with sequins, so that people wouldn’t think that you are going to the gym”), the T-shirt with a slogan (“the best way to share your inner thoughts with the world”) and at least three mobile phones. And more – cropped jackets, low-rise jeans, a tiara, a belly button piercing, a baseball cap, items in pink and every girl’s best friend – a mini dog.
Let us remind you how Paris became super popular with her reality show The Simple Life, from where Kim Kardashian shot to fame.
