Gucci Loves NY, But Hates New York Fashion Bloggers!!!
Jan 31, 2008 - by Fashion Indie
Gucci Loves NY, but they must really hate New York Fashion Bloggers.
The seemingly heartfelt brand decided to launch a site celebrating their new Fifth Ave flagship store, which is slated to open February 8th. In order to celebrate (and connect themselves to the "hip" market) they got five fashion bloggers to tout their favorite New York spots. Of course, NON OF THE BLOGGERS ARE NEW YORKERS!!!
Cory Kennedy (not a fashion blogger, officially on my BASH list and from LA), Tomoki Sukezane of Openers (Japanese Blogger), Susie Bubble of Style Bubble (UK Blogger who I actually am hearts for), La Coquette (Paris Blogger) and Fashion Is Spinach (D.C. Blogger) were chosen as their panel of experts on New York City.
What the f*ck GUCCI, you couldn't choose at least one local fashion blogger to be on your list. Considering that Brooklyn is now the bloggiest city in the world (and the place that Fashion Indie calls home) this seems like a bit of a spit in the face to New York Fashion and the powerful little monopoly us professional bloggers have built in our fair city.
Gucci, you are officially on my BASH list (even if I do love your current Resort Collection) for ignoring New York bloggers.
You can get back on if you include at least one NYC blogger (present company included) onto your list.
P.S. You can also get off my list if you send me your current resort collection. Pants -36, Shirts - XL - (Yes even we can be bought)
