Gucci's Dragon

Gucci creates an inspired limited edition Chinese Dragon Boston Bag to mark the opening of its flagship store in Shanghai.

Gucci opens it 28th store in China on the 6 June 2009, to mark the occasion Frida Giannini has created a limited edition "Shanghai Dragon Bag". A version of the sort after Boston Bag in white with two red Dragons facing each other in a symmetrical fashion and the Gucci signature in the middle, underneath is a bright red column. Inspiration for the design comes from ancient Chinese Symbolism including the use of prosperous red, a sign of good luck.

The concept for the bags moves on from previous personalised collections, which have worked successfully - Sloaney (London), Gucci NY (New York) and Gucci 50's postcard (Rome), all were limited edition runs and sold out rather quickly.

200 limited edition Dragon bags have been produced and are only available to purchase at the Gucci store, Shanghai.
