Man Fashion: Gucci 8 Limited Edition Beijing Olympic Designs

12:34 am Contributed by JW

As we know, the Olympics are being held in Beijing this year. Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini created a line called 8-8-2008. Her eight (totally over-the-top) souvenir items were designed to celebrate this year's events.

Of course, the one that caught my eye was the "China red" cruiser ($3420)! Besides that, the line includes a $3150 Mahjong set, a panda bear stuffed animal, dog tag necklace, two pieces of luggage, a red wrist banded digital watch (the brand's first digital timepiece) , and red suede sneakers for both her and him.

Huang Xiaoming is also the first Asian model for Gucci. He's looking pretty good in the ads, too! But if I had a choice, I'd definitely choose the bike over him.

I did some research and the number "8" means prosperity in Chinese. These items are only sold in Gucci stores in China and Hong Kong.
