Mark Ronson is a very stylish man, and it hasn't gone unnoticed by Frida Giannini. The Gucci Creative Director has teamed up with the producer to create a line of limited edition trainers. The footwear incorporates Gucci's logo and iconic red and green web detail along with silver or gold metal dog tags and will be available as part of the design houses world tour. Frida commented, "From the moment I first sat down with Mark we connected. He has a great eye for design and an amazing knowledge of sneaker history. He is an artist whose influence is cross-cultural and cross-generational."
The shoes will come with a custom 12-inch vinyl record with exclusive tracks produced by Mark. He explained, "I spent many many years as an avid sneaker collector, so I wanted to make sure these Gucci shoes were truly special, both from an aesthetic point of view and a collectable one." The Gucci flash store opens in New York before traveling to Miami, London, Berlin, Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
