Over the past few seasons, the most impressive thing about Gucci's handbags is what the brand has managed to resist: over-branding, over-embellishment and over-baked design of all kinds. Every collection seems more well-edited than the last, and the results get simpler and more beautiful with every new collection released.
Gucci's Cruise 2015 lineup includes two new lines, Bamboo Daily and Lady Bamboo. The names indicate exactly what you'd expect; Bamboo Daily is a line of simple leather (and occasionally python) bags, sparsely accented with dark bamboo closures, that are perfect for daily use in the office and beyond. The Lady Bamboo bags are in a similar vein, but with a more feminine finish. They're all strong choices if you're looking to expand your wardrobe.
