Additionally, the collection includes various colours and prints as well as different sizes from belt bags to medium-sized originals.

Soho Disco

Small blue bag Just like the name indicates, the Soho Disco handbag is youthful, funky and carefree. This handbag can easily be identified by its usual central logo, cross-body strap and swinging tassel. The silhouette is shaped to sit comfortably over the hip yet is deceptively spacious. Soho Disco is one of Gucci’s most popular handbags. However, it hit its peak in 2015 where many beautiful colourways and styles were available. Although the handbag is still available from Gucci stores, the brand has discontinued most of it is colour ranges.

Dionysus Bag

Gucci dionysus bag As the name suggests, this handbag is inspired by the Greek god, Dionysus who was the god of wine, fertility, pleasure and dance, theatre, and religious ecstasy. However, it’s most recognised by its signature vintage metal clasp characterised by two tiger heads in the shape of a horseshoe. Unlike the afore-mentioned handbags, this Gucci bag is much more spacious, structured, and yet still has a glamourous appeal. What’s more, the stylish chain strap can worn by its top strap, as a long shoulder bag or adjusted to be shorter.

Bamboo Bag

During World War 2, countries suffered from a lack of resources – forcing many business owners and craftsmen to be creative with their products. Gucci quickly realised that they could import bamboo from Japan, heat it and bend it to create a beautiful masterpiece that we still know and love today. This feature adds warmth to any outfit and could last a lifetime. What’s more, as soon as the bamboo handle bag was debuted in 1947, it was a success amongst celebrities and fashionistas like Elizabeth Taylor, Ingrid Bergman, Princess Di and many more.
