Guess who is back on my radar majorly? Gucci. It is not that I lost love for Gucci, I just wasn’t as enthralled. I would be happy to find a great bag but was not searching Gucci’s website expecting to find it. Their collection right now for Spring/Summer is eye-catching and has quite a few pieces I am loving.
One of my absolute favorite bags is the Gucci Jungle Shoulder Bag. It is just what I have been looking for: a shoulder bag with a long chain strap.
Tons of designers are releasing these more compact shoulder bags with a long strap, a-la-Chanel-Flap. This Gucci bag has all of the Gucci accents including bamboo detail and metal beads. I would totally go for the orange version (more of a tan orange than orange orange). I love pairing a tan bag with khaki’s or white jeans and a crisp light summer top.
The single strap has an adjustable knot and a 16″ drop, which is fairly long. Then there is the detachable chain strap, which I adore, because I always love a little chain strap on my bags. The inside is made to be functional with a zip, cell phone, and additional pockets. Overall dimensions are 14 1/5″H x 16 1/10″W x 3 3/10″D.
I totally adore this bag. Buy via Bergdorf Goodman for $1,850.
