Sometimes I forget about my love of Gucci. I get a little set in my ways and comfortable, much like a long relationship. But then something catches my eye and I every feeling of love I have for a brand comes back ten-fold. Gucci was on my long-time, back-burner love corner for a while, but most recently it has moved back to the forefront of my mind. From the absolutely stunning 1970’s bags, to this glamorous 1921 bag, Gucci is on a roll.
The shape of the bag is already stunning, but finishing it in cherry crocodile adds the cherry on top. I love crocodile skin, and when the quality of the skin is superb, the bag stands out that much more. The difference in scales is alluring and the cherry hue helps give this Gucci handbag much more dimension.
The collection is a special edition to celebrate Gucci’s 90th anniversary, and to signify this special achievement, there is also a G.Gucci Firenze 1921 light gold plaque dangling from the bag. The single adjustable strap has a 8.3″ drop, and the detachable shoulder strap with 17.7″ drop. True to Gucci aesthetics, the bag is finished with hand stitching, tassels, and bamboo detail. Buy via Gucci for $27,000.
