Gucci Host Pop-up at Houston Galleria through July 12
IN THE SPIRIT OF THE PLAYOFF NBA SEASON, Gucci’s latest collection dives into sportswear, and the European brand has chosen Clutch City as one of the markets to launch its latest collection. The luxury brand clearly knows its audience. If you know anything about the Houston Galleria, the Gucci storefront is apparently one of the most popular stores in the multi-story mall.
Last June, the brand launched its Gucci Basket sneaker, a high-top shoe in contrasting colors designed by creative director Alessandro Michele. The shoe fuses a luxury and streetwear aesthetic, which is arguably one of the many descriptions that make up Houston’s fun and eclectic fashion scene. While the sport has come back close to allowing crowds to enter arenas, it is a tradition for the fashion industry to design pieces to celebrate the comeback. The genderless sneaker is inspired by the most popular NBA dunks and features a distressed mockup and mixed materials including mesh, blue soles, green laces, and more.
In addition, in Houston, participants who will have the chance to enter the Gucci store in the Galleria will have the chance to see the dedicated space. Upon entering the store, the Gucci Pin pop-up sits at the bar, complete with new sneakers and exclusive clothing. Until July 12, customers are encouraged to stop by the Galleria and check out the label’s latest installment.
The cities chosen to host the Gucci Pin pop-up include Beverly Hills, California, Las Vegas, Dallas, Atlanta and Orlando, Florida. However, if you don’t have the chance to experience one of the exclusive pop-ups, you can purchase the latest collection here.
