By Etsuo Kono / Japan News Staff WriterLuxury Italian fashion brand Gucci unveiled on Monday its collaborative products with the Waltz cassette tape shop in Tokyo’s Nakameguro district.

Gucci has selected seven locations in the world, including Waltz, to be so-called Gucci Places that reflect the contemporary aesthetic sense of Alessandro Michele, the brand’s creative director. An exclusive selection of products, based on those in Gucci’s Courrier collection, have been designed as part of the initiative.

Special cassette tape patches inspired by Waltz are featured on six products, including a Boston bag, shoulder bag and wallet, which are available at Waltz.

The Gucci Aoyama flagship will also sell products from April 27. Six products are priced from ¥56,160 to ¥447,120. The project is intended to support the shop’s cassette tape activities.
