Here is the story of the Gucci bamboo bag, retold.
Magic dust from a moth. Sparkly dew from dawn. The roar of a cat. Gold glitter from a stag beetle. The antiquity of the bamboo.
Mix well, and stir. Reassemble.
The first of Gucci’s bamboo bags was introduced in 1947, an innovation rising from adversity, during post-war material rationalisation.
This fall/winter 2017, Alessandro Michele infused this symbolic icon of the House with the essence of his magical garden of plants and animals.
The Broche, re-imagined for this collection, featuring the golden frame around the bag, and accentuated with golden beetle prints.
Introducing three new bag lines featuring the bamboo handle – The Thiara, Linea Falena, and Ottilia.
The Thiara: A distinctive top handle bag featuring the Gucci roaring cat head embellished with crystals.
The Linea Falena: A standout piece with a giant mother-of-pearl moth, and web-stripe inlay.
The Ottilia: Structured, and adorned with animals and nature.
Strolling through the spectrum of classic to the directional, which one is your poison?
