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.

    Liking this too……the tan is definitely nicer than the black though (the slightly boho vibe just seems to work better with the tan than the black somehow!) (fb)

    Tan one looks like the perfect bag for walking around Chicago in the summer. Ahhhhh :-) (fb)

  • Valentina

    Absolutely gorgeous. I love everything about it, and I have nothing negative to say, which is weird. (fb)

  • Stacy

    Valentina is correct…nothing negative to say. It’s perfect! (fb)

  • Linda

    So classy looking! I would get it but I think the price is a smidge to high!

  • Loquita

    I am not a Gucci fan by any means but this is one of the loveliest bags I have seen in a while – the details are unique and spot-on.

    Like you, it’s been a long time since I have seen a bag that nice from Gucci. I hadn’t looked at their display in Neiman’s in a long time because lately they have just had the same old bags.

    This one is nice, and I like that the strap is adjustable.

  • MizzJ

    Ah very cute! I would totally wear this one, but only the tan as with that tassel, black is a bit too formal.

    It’s nice but I don’t like the chain on it. (fb)

  • hannah

    love the tan color… but the price is steep for such a small bag! (FB)

    I just purchased this bag at Neimans on sale. It isn’t a small bag as it appears in the pic. It’s fabulous and the bamboo accents give it a casual feel in either color.
