During 2014, Gucci has released collection after collection of gorgeous bags. Bamboo had a huge resurgence for the brand, as well as textured Diamante leather and the new Jackie Soft. To close out the year, Gucci put together a stunning compilation of items that are sure to delight, whether as a gift for this holiday season or a new bag for a new year.
Gucci’s designs aren’t the only notable things here; the cruise collection debuted some of the most stunning hues of leather, including mauve-like purple, a crisp off-white, light pink and beyond. I had the chance to check out four of my favorite Gucci pieces, but there are so many more; you can visit Gucci to check out the entire selection.
The inclusion of more Bamboo for Gucci relates to its deeply rooted history, and the bamboo accents are iconic for the house. The Gucci Bamboo Daily Shoulder Bag is part of the Bamboo Daily line, which melds ease and elegance beautifully; this bag is a stand-out of the bunch.
The shoulder bag sits comfortably, and the body of the bag lies close to flat against your side. Of course, the leather is supple and divine; Gucci always finds a way to make a design look simple yet utterly seductive. The off-white leather works well for winter and will give a clean touch to any look. This is the bag that I have on my wish-list from Gucci, and the name of it describes precisely what it is: the perfect shoulder bag to carry day after day. And trust me, when you get your hands on this bag, that’s precisely what you will be doing.
A few months ago, I did a Purseonals review on my Gucci Bamboo Shopper. In it, I raved about this bag, plus I carry it so often that it’s the most-used bag in my collection for 2014. I almost always love a mini version of my favorite designs, and Gucci has made my bag wish list grow once again with the addition of the Bamboo Shopper Mini Top Handle.
The main difference between the larger size and the mini (after the size, of course) is the lack of interior compartments. With a small bag, you can’t have as many divisions because you need the space to be as usable as possible. I totally love this bag, and it’d make a great companion piece to my other Bamboo Shopper. Plus, the large size can get a bit heavy, so there is nothing better than lightening the load with the same style I already love.
Backpacks are a trend that shows no signs of slowing down, and I’m always on the hunt for a great backpack that might push me over the edge to purchase. If I had to choose, I’d get this Gucci Bamboo Backpack–the design marries utility and style beautifully, plus the color is divine.
This bag has such a cool girl feel with its oversized tassels and bamboo top handle, which will amp up your style instantly. Gucci offers a ton of colors but this lilac color is my favorite by far. Purple is a neutral color that offers more more dimension than other neutrals but works well with majority of your wardrobe. If you’re looking for a backpack, this is a great option.
We don’t cover wallets enough, but I am an extremely picky person when it comes to my wallet. A zip-around continental wallet offers plenty of space for all of your credit cards, gift cards and other important cards, and you can easily slide your money in the center zip pocket as well.
The Flora print instantly amps up the “wow” factor for this wallet, but since the print is on a black background, it doesn’t distract at all. I need to find a new wallet for my mom, and this is the one I’m planning to get for her–let’s hope she skims over this part of the post so I didn’t just spoil the surprise.
These are only four of the many items Gucci offers, so check out the rest on Gucci.com now.
