This Gucci Aphrodite Bag Is for the Barbie Girls

Cue the music, you know you want to!

Making its debut for the brand’s Cruise 2023 collection, the Gucci Aphrodite bag is one of the House’s new fan favorites. An elegant and easy silhouette, the Aphrodite fuses together iconic elements from Gucci’s past and the modernity of the House’s present. It’s this sentiment that was integral to Alessandro Michele’s time at Gucci, and while his reign has ended, his influence will forever remain. The Aphrodite, one of his last debuts for the House, is like owning a piece of Gucci history.

Gucci Aphrodite: the Details

We first introduced the Aphrodite late last year when it hit stores, and it immediately felt like a hit. The bag itself is fairly simple – a crescent-shaped silhouette with a strap that can be adjusted; its lines are clean and curved.

While many of Gucci’s bags feature intricate details, cool shapes, and bold embellishments, the Aphrodite is more understated. Understated but still inherently Gucci, the Aphrodite is defined by its gold GG detailing, fundamental to Michele’s time at the House, inspired by an important House code from the 1970s.

The bag is simple but beautiful, both to the eye and touch – crafted from soft leather with a grained texture that picks up color well. Speaking of color, it’s the latest hue of the Aphrodite that has us revisiting this bag. For Pre-Fall 2023, Gucci continues to blend that same archival influence with modern functionality to create a contemporary narrative, and the Aphrodite Bag is just that.

Speaking of contemporary, for Pre-Fall 2023, the Aphrodite is introduced in what can easily be described as Barbie Pink. Modern and fresh, it’s the perfect hue to wear right now. The larger version of the Aphrodite and the smaller chain shoulder bag are introduced in this bright Barbie pink, once again showcasing the House’s vision of reinventing its signature favorites season after season.
