Gucci craftsmanship at Paragon

Gucci Bamboo bag in exotic crocodile leather

Did you ever wonder how your bag was assembled from scratch? A curious fashionista would be enlightened by Italian Artisans, who were flown over to Singapore for the Gucci showcase held in conjunction with Gucci’s 90th birthday celebration.

I came down to Paragon to observe and witness how the artisans crafted the iconic Gucci bamboo handbag.

During the period of the exhibition, the artisans did a complimentary embossment of a customer’s initials in gold on any Gucci item!

Whole sheets of exotic ostrich leather to calf leather were on display for customers to feel and examine.
