This summer’s Gucci handbag collection has arrived in their online store. They vary from totes to clutches to shoulder bags to hobos. Handbags are offered in various colors and materials to give every fashionista a wide range of options. Here is my top five Gucci handbags for this summer. Have to plead guilty in advance, I’m partial to plain leathers with less razzmatazz.
Gucci Nouveau Fringe Python Shoulder Bag – $3,100 This bag gets its inspiration from Gucci’s 1940’s flap shoulder bag. A perfect accessory for city dwellers, it has lacquered bamboo decorations, polished rose gold hardware, maxi stitching and dry-stoned embossed trademark. Other details include leather lining, adjustable strap, double tassels and interior pockets with snap and zip closure. Small bag measures 9.5”W x 7.5”H x 2”D.
Hip bamboo Leather Shoulder Bag – $2,900 Why this? Its simplicity appeals to me. Except for its low-key bamboo frog closure and antique gold hardware, it’s as plain as it gets. It offers hand and shoulder carry through an 8” drop hand-woven handle and a removable and adjustable strap with 18” drop. Interiors feature zip and smartphone pockets. Measures 15”W x 14”H x 5.5”D.
