Gucci launches “City Series” Collection to celebrate London Olympics

Gucci goes Olympian

Olympic fever will not only be confined to London this summer, it seems. Gucci has recently announced that footwear and accessories will take on an Olympic theme under the banner of “City Series”. The collection plays host to Olympic-colored sneakers and bags, designed to stand out from the recent trends for more somber colors. Leather duffel and tote bags, meanwhile, will carry a fancy image of the London skyline, while sunglasses will sport lenses with shades of red and blue akin to the British flag. And you can even time the fastest athletes with a black-and-white Gucci watch.
