Way back in February, we brought you a first look at Gucci’s Fall 2017 bags. Alessandro Michele dipped into the buy Gucci archives and relied heavily on the brand’s signature bamboo detailing for this collection. While I would have never seen myself loving one of these bags, when I got my hands on this little black beauty, I fell hard.
copy Gucci Bamboo Classic Frame Top Handle Bag is a show-stopper. Crafted in glossy black leather with stunning gold-printed detailing and the brand’s signature bamboo top handle, this bag is truly spectacular. There are many things I love about it: for starters, I love that it has classic details that are well-known for the brand without being logo-heavy. cheap Gucci is one of the hottest bag brands of the moment, but you won’t see every fashion girl on the street carrying this one.
This bag is super-structured but does expand to fit all of your day-to-day necessities. I comfortably carried my iPhone 6S, sunglasses in a cloth pouch, a small wallet, a small cosmetics bag and a mini notebook and pen. I still had some room for more, but with bag sizes getting smaller and smaller, I’ve learned how to streamline what I carry! Silk-lined in a pretty floral print, the bag has two interior pockets: one that zips and one slit pocket with a snap closure. Overall dimensions are 10.5″W x 7″H x 2.5″D. Snag one for yourself via Gucci for .
At Alessandro Michele’s perfect Gucci, the details are abundant and dazzling, spinning out in seemingly endless directions with hardware, embroidery, beading, exotic inlays, and beyond. One of the best things about Gucci right now, though, is that the house doesn’t just save those flourishes for its most breathtaking evening wear or highest heels; instead, through Gucci accessories, those special details can be a part of your everyday life.
First on our must list is the Gucci Marmont Small Top Handle Bag, which we paired with the Gucci Le Marché Des Merveilles 38mm Watch, and the two combine to strike a sporty, casual tone without sacrificing any luxury. The Marmont line is a new classic for replica Gucci, and its bags have been snapped up by shoppers and celebrities worldwide since it debuted several seasons ago. It’s easy to see why: the leather versions of the bags are just simple enough to be everyday carries, but the inventive zigzag quilting and bold logo closure provide the kind of assertive detailing the brand has become known for. Meanwhile, the Gucci Le Marché Des Merveilles 38mm Watch employs the longtime Gucci signatures of the green-and-red Web and bee embroidery in unexpected ways to create a modern look with strong heritage ties.
The theme of animal detailing continues in the fake Gucci Osiride Small GG Shoulder Bag, which has as its focal point a stunning, Swarovski-eyed, enamel-detailed tiger head closure, framed with a brass plaque and studding. Out from there flow three different types of paneling to cover the body of the bag: black leather, glossy brown snakeskin and the brand’s signature GG Supreme logo canvas. For all of those disparate elements, the bag feels harmonious, maybe even trim. They work together to form a sophisticated whole, which we paired with the mechanical, steampunk-esque Gucci Vintage Web 24x40mm Watch. The watch’s Ronda quartz movement is encased in transparent grey Plexiglas, which allows the wearer to see the delicate mechanics of keeping time. It’s not too delicate, though: the petite watch is banded with gold-tone studs.
