Gucci.com sent me a very nice email last night:
"Gucci.com is very please to extend a special invitation to our most valued clients. (I read: You spend shit-loads of money and we want more of it.) Through this presale website, you will be able to reserve items from the Spring Summer 2008 collection at the sale price in advance of the sale. The official sale will begin on June 2, 2008...This presale invitation is non-transferable and is intended only for the original recipient. (blah blah blah.)"
The link works for any shopper who uses it. I had some friends try it out already. Let me know if you have any problems and I'll try to help you out. Orders ship between June 2nd and June 6th.
I'm not a big Gucci bag girl but the clothes are really stunning. Take a look for yourself. Here is the magic link: Gucci.com
