The Gucci 100 collection is designed to celebrate the connection between the universal languages of music and clothing.

Gucci’s 100th anniversary pop-up

As part of its centennial celebrations this year, Gucci has unveiled an immersive pop-up at Ion Orchard showcasing its new anniversary collection.

In an homage to the Italian fashion house’s unyielding relevance in pop culture, everything centres on the number 22,705 – the number of songs in which the word “Gucci” appears in lyrics from its founding year of 1921 to date, according to music data company Musixmatch.

The Gucci 100 collection is designed to celebrate the connection between the universal languages of music and clothing, and features ready-to-wear items such as pullovers and tees, bags and accessories emblazoned with the Gucci 100 logo.

Select pieces are adorned with verses from three songs – including The R (1988) by American hip-hop duo Eric B. & Rakim – chosen by creative director Alessandro Michele.

Visitors can spin a wheel on the side of a cabinet to access a playlist of songs from different decades – all of which name-check Gucci.

Or visit a digital version of the pop-up at Gucci’s website and on the Gucci App.

In an initiative to support local brands, Dream Cruises has partnered four Singaporean brands – fashion label Binary Style, social enterprise The Animal Project, tea brand The 1872 Clipper Tea Co, and ice cream cafe Creamier. Each is offering specially designed items for sale on board the World Dream cruise ship.

Binary Style created two unique prints inspired by the hull artwork on World Dream, and the Ropes Course and Waterslide Park on the ship, which are featured on a scarf ($80) and reversible mask ($18).

From The Animal Project, which showcases and supports talents in the special needs community, there is a pouch ($28) drawn by artist Tay Jun-Yi using a marker pen, with artwork inspired by marine animals spotted at sea.

Other lifestyle products by the social enterprise such as milk mugs and travel tumblers will also be available for purchase. Part of the sales proceeds from these items go towards supporting artists with disabilities at The Animal Project.
