Mary J. Blige X Gucci

Just in time for Fashion Week, Gucci has partnered with Mary J. Blige to create a limited-edition time-piece for MJB’s charity, Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN). Says Fashion Week Daily:

“Gucci creative director Frida Giannini has designed a limited-edition black PVD twirl watch. With a face framed in black diamonds, the bracelet-cum-timepiece features a commemorative FFAWN engraving on the back of its rotating case. The watch is set to make its sparkling debut at Gucci’s Fifth Avenue flagship on September 16, and will be available to the public at Gucci boutiques and select department stores nationwide the following day. Priced at $1,895, customers can make the moderate investment guilt-free, as the philanthropic fashion house will donate a portion of the proceeds to Blige’s charity.”

While I love the watch, I wonder who actually wears one anymore in this day of ‘Berrys & iPhones. Maybe MJB & Gucci should follow up with limited-edition phone cases!
