* Gucci has experienced a creative rebirth in the last few seasons
* Men’s sneakers with distinct gusto
* Sporty, sophisticated women’s timepieces

There’s no better time to get yourself some Gucci. The venerable Italian brand has experienced a creative rebirth in the last few seasons, thanks to its forward-thinking creative director, Alessandro Michele.

Formerly an accessories designer, Michele has somehow managed to find that perfect balance between highlighting Gucci’s luxe heritage and European roots, while pushing the design boundaries into thoroughly fresh, modern, investment-worthy pieces.

If you only buy one piece this month, make it something from Gucci. These two picks below are no-brainers.

For Him: White New Ace Sneakers

The classic low-top leather sneaker is updated with just enough gusto to make a statement, without coming across like you’re trying too hard. All the hallmarks of a contemporary men’s sneaker are here: the brushed white leather construction, white laces, padded tongue and collar. The difference is in the details. Let everyone else at the office do the stark and minimalist look; you’ll rock a silver-tone logo stamp at the mismatched navy and red snakeskin heel tabs. Sure it can be a little obnoxious, but no one ever made it to the top by being shy.

For Her: G-Frame Stainless Steel & Canvas Watch

This silver-tone stunner updates the classic Gucci timepiece with a sporty, yet sophisticated design. The narrow strap features soft leather on one side and the label’s hallmark red and green web stripes on the other. Wrap it around your wrists twice for an easy, elegant layered look. The retro-tinged watch features a Ronda quartz movement encased within crystal sapphire glass. The piece is casual enough to pair with a T-shirt and jeans, but chic enough to wear with your favorite evening dress as well. This isn’t your grandma’s Gucci; this is a watch for you to claim all on your own.
