The Gucci Bamboo Top Handle Bag

With a distinctive look and design, the Gucci Bamboo Top Handle bags have been a feature of the House’s handbag lineup since its introduction in 1947 and has been touted over the years by the likes of Beyoncé, Harry Styles and more. 

This season, Gucci gives its favourite bag a massive revamp with bold geometric patterns in bright colours that recall the uniforms worn by horse-riding jockeys for a bold new aesthetic. In particular, its institutional blue-red-blue web edition is the perfect companion for any night out.

The Gucci Horsebit 1955 Shoulder Bag

Reminiscent of  Gucci’s rich equestrian history, the Gucci Horsebit 1955 is a classic bag that is distinguished with its iconic double ring. It is versatile, classic and certainly does a good job of standing out. 

This Christmas, the bag has been dressed with pink square prints on the front panel and a bright orange maxi double G print on the back to make a trendy addition to any monochromatic outfit.

The Jackie 1961 Hobo Bag

The Jackie 1961 Hobo bag is iconic for its elegant half-moon shape and outstanding piston closure.

The contemporary classic bag brings to mind a nostalgic and vintage air and this Christmas, Gucci reimagines the bag in a classic black-and-white colourway that is bold yet sophisticated.

The Classic Top Handle Bag

Detailed with a gold double G, a gold lock closure and two distinctive hardware details, this is one bag you can use for work or play while exuding a Bon Ton attitude with a fresh twist.

The Gucci Dionysus

This season, the Gucci Dionysus, which is the heart and soul of the House’s Beloved collection gets a bold facelift. 

Inspired by the Greek god who is said to have crossed the river Tigris on a tiger sent to him by Zeus, the Dionysus features an iconic double-tiger-headed, spur-shaped closure that is reminiscent of its time. 

This Christmas, the Gucci Dionysus features monogrammed leather and bright colours that contrast well against the base of the bags.  

The Dionysus in particular features a bright yellow base with green trimming that is bound to draw attention.

The Gucci Shoulder Bag

Gucci may be more vintage but no one can ever say that the House has not been keeping up with the times. 

In their gifting collection this year, Gucci takes the iconic GG leather and breathes new life into it with contemporary codes that emphasise timeless, lightly grained soft leather that is embossed with the GG monogram.

Add a pop of colour to the outfits of young fashionistas in your life with their orange and azure shoulder bag. The lightweight bag features a leather flap and gold lock closure that is a must for any wardrobe.

The Gucci Bamboo

The Gucci bamboo bears one of the most traditional canvases of Gucci and is a vintage classic that any high fashion enthusiast will probably already have in their collection. 

This Christmas, Gucci merges their contemporary logo with the milestones of the House by maximising the GG to make them even more recognisable and iconic. 

With its classic lines and brown leather vintage trim, you can’t go wrong with this one.
