This Auntie classic seems to be the rising popular brand with handbags nowadays as I see more and more Gucci 'GG' labels running around Singapore. They are indeed lasting and the designs are usually quite plain, in my opinion. I am not much of a Gucci fan and in the whole time that I looked at their stuff I have only once liked a bag that did not look too good on me either.
Over rated a little as with the hype of it by foreigners, I would say that the value of Gucci has become yet another LV. It is a classic branded bag yes, but it is the cliche and not everything goes with cliche. Besides, the colours of Gucci tend to stand out a little more with its little specks of gold of green and red going around. If not for the outstanding seasonal designs I think that going Gucci is a rather waste of finances. For something its price, its durability and quality better be of top quality too.
Excellent Service at Paragon
I had been to the Gucci at all 3 locations, meaning MBS, Taka and Paragon. I must say that in terms of the luxurious feel, design and range available, Paragon is the one that stands out most. Little wonder since it is the flagship store for Gucci.
As one stepped into the store, the staff opens the door and greets you with a great smile regardless whether you are a local or not, or whether you are dressed in casual or branded labels. This is the thing that I liked as I felt that they should always treat every customer fair and square. The interior of the shop was decorated based on the brown theme of Gucci. All items displayed were bright and looks good.
The service provided by the staff was excellent. As I had trouble choosing a gift for my friend, the staff actually gave me a lot of suggestions and showed me the different models available in their store. Although I troubled her by asking her a lot of questions, she still smiled at me and served me without any complaints. I was really appreciative of her service and eventually I got a wonderful wallet from her.
