PurseBlog Asks: Which Gucci Bag Should Kaitlin Snatch Up Next?

Gucci

Thinking about Gucci bags makes me feel a lot like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, only I’m not afraid of lions, tigers and bears. Instead, I’m lusting for Marmonts, Dionysuses and Sylvies (oh my). What will I choose? That’s where you come in, my friends. Help a sister out!

I’ve been lusting for a new bag for months now. I turned 27 on Monday, and in mourning my early twenties, I decided to finally take the plunge and make a purchase. The problem is, I can’t make up my mind on what I want. For a while I had my heart set on something from Gucci’s Marmont Collection. Then, for a hot second, I thought about picking up a ChanelWOC. Céline’s Mini Belt Bag held my attention for about 24 hours, too, and for a millisecond, I considered adding a Saint Laurent piece to my collection. Poor Megs has been the target of one too many “what about this bag?” texts, and even though her and I have decided that my next bag is definitely going to be a Gucci, I still need your help!

Gucci is one of the hottest, if not the hottest, bag brands in the game right now, and I’m super duper excited to add another Gucci to my rotation. However, the more I look, the more confused I get. Everything that Gucci is doing right now is just so good. The Sylvie bags are absolutely adorable, but I think I have pretty much narrowed down my picks to either a Marmont Flap Bag in black or white, or a Dionysus Supreme Shoulder bag in black. When it comes to the Dionysus, I’m also unsure about which size. I’m drawn to the small, but the medium (the largest offering of the group) is only $140 more! It seems silly not to go for the largest size, given the modest price difference. I also kinda dig the red version too, but I would likely regret not buying it in black. Do you see my problem now? I am arguably the most all-over-the-place, indecisive shopper ever–HELP! If you had to pick just one, which would it be?

The Gucci Bag Kaitlin is Gifting Herself This Christmas

Gucci

If you’ve been reading my posts you know I’ve said I wanted everything from the Gucci Marmont Shoulder Bag to the Valentino Rockstud Spike Chain Bag and a few others in between. While I’ve always been a bit of an indecisive shopper, especially when I’m purchasing a bigger ticket item, working in the industry has made my indecisiveness so much worse. One of the perks of this job is that not only do I get to see and feel the bags I’m lusting for outside of a store environment, but oftentimes I get to actually carry them once or twice so as to give you an accurate review. The problem with this one perk is that I see so many different bags on a monthly basis and like any bag lover, I love them all! This makes it hard for me to actually commit to just one.

Recently I’ve been lusting after one of Gucci’s Newest Bags: The Ophidia GG Small Shoulder Bag. I first saw this bag back in May when Amanda reviewed Gucci’s Cruise 2018 bags. I was immediately drawn to the adorable vintage vibe, and classic GG print. I thought it was cute, but at the time I had my mind set on something else, so I really didn’t consider this bag to be an option for me until a few weeks ago. I went into Gucci with one of my friends to look at a bag she was considering and saw the Ophidia in person. I was a bit more intrigued, but admittedly still not totally sold until I was able to pull a sample of this bag and take it for a test drive.

I love this bag for many reasons—well beyond just the aesthetics. For starters, it’s pretty versatile. I think it would look adorable for a dinner out paired with a nice top and heels, but you could also dress it down with vintage jeans, a great sweater and sneakers. It’s roomy enough to carry what I need for the day, but not too roomy that it’s too big to wear out at night. It is the perfect in between size for me, and I am totally sold. It’s a complete classic, and I don’t see this going out of style anytime soon! I can’t wait to make her mine. Make sure you’re following us on Instagram as I’ve got my eye on a little wallet too, and you won’t want to miss my reveal!

The Ophidia Shoulder Bag is lined in silk and features an adjustable shoulder strap, and while this bag is technically a shoulder bag it works cross body as well. I am 5’9 and the bag hit me just at my hipbone, but on someone smaller it would work perfectly cross body as well as over the shoulder. The bag has pockets both on the front interior as well as the back interior as shown below. Overall dimensions of the Gucci Ophidia GG Shoulder Bag are 9.5″W x 7.5″H x 3″D, and it retails for $1,390 via Gucci.

GUCCI GG VELVET DIONYSUS BAG

Gucci

Gucci-GG-Velvet-Dionysus-Bag-2

The Dionysus Bag is not a new creation, but it is currently one of Gucci’s most favorite handbags in the fashion world. For the Cruise 2018 Collection, Gucci has modified the design of the Dionysus Bag and they made it so-eye-catching that we needed to let you know. Now take a closer look at the picture and tell us whether you can see the ‘glam’. Introducing the Gucci GG Velvet Dionysus Bag.

The Design

Gucci-GG-Velvet-Dionysus-Bag-3

The Dionysus Bag is a unique design with a catchy story. The bold tiger head closure is inspired by the Greek god Dionysus. The myth tells that this god have crossed the river Tigris on a tiger that was sent to him by Zeus. Dionysus was a god of fertility and wine; he would either bring joy and divine ecstasy or brutal and blind rage, thus mirroring the effect of the nature of wine.

Gucci-GG-Velvet-Dionysus-Bag-4

The Dionysus for this season is crafted in GG motif, which is the signature GG quilting you see on this bag. But that’s nothing new. The special thing about this season is the Velvet and the shine that make our eyes dazzle. The soft Velvet might be harder to maintain but it gives a pleasure feeling of luxury.

What’s more? This bag comes with a medium-sized and bright sliding chain to help you sling it on your shoulder or wear it cross body. You can also change it from shoulder bag and top handle.

The Interior

Gucci-GG-Velvet-Dionysus-Bag-11

Open the bag using the pin closure with side release. The interior is made with a pocket under the flap and a large main compartment. This bag is big enough to support your daily essentials and perhaps even more.

The Sizes And Prices

Measuring 25 x 13.5 x 7 (W x H x D) cm, the chain has 58 cm drop and it’s priced at $2650 USD, €1980 euro, £1790 GBP, via Gucci boutiques.

GUCCITOTEM BAG

Gucci

GucciTotem-Bag

There is one Gucci handbag that’s made with love from the inside and outside. It’s chic but also playful. We’re talking about the GucciTotem Bag, which is a new style from the Cruise 2018 collection. This bag looks classic, but also shiny and easy-to-flaunt.

The Design

GucciTotem-Bag-3

GucciTotem-Bag-4

The GucciTotem Bag can be separated into three parts; first it’s made with strong and durable leather in single color. Then is embellished with green and red web to symbolize that’s an art-of-work from Gucci. As for the final refinement, the house implemented a crystal piece on the front in the shape of a heart or butterfly (or other shapes). So this bag is chic but also playful.

No eye can run away from the shiny crystals, because it’s done in large size. The Gucci Totem Bag Collection comes with a shoulder bag or a tote bag version. Both bags come with a detachable strap for shoulder carry. The shoulder strap is uniquely crafted with jacquard stripe nylon. It’s a beautiful piece and this time there is no Gucci logo crafted on the front, but instead you can find it printed on the back.

Gucci Bamboo Top Handle Basket Bag

Gucci

IMAGE: GUCCIUnless you’ve been living under the proverbial rock, you would have seen basket bags all over the place. On Instagram, along Orchard Road, even in your friendly neighbourhood hipster cafe. Yes, woven straw or rattan baskets are officially très chic again, and whether you bought them in Arab Street, Taobao or even the vintage store, you’re now part of the coolest cliques around.

IMAGE: BAGAHOLICBOY | FLOWERS: YI LIAN NG FLORAL ATELIER

Maybe it’s the collective conscious of wanting to do good (they are pretty environmentally friendly) and the whole living simply movement that makes them so desirable, or maybe it’s because they are generally affordable, hardy and great for everything else besides being a bag because you could also them to house flowers, store fruits or even as picnic baskets.

But if you’re looking for the one that tops everyone else’s basket bag, might I present this one from Gucci, the Bamboo Top Handle Basket Bag. New from their Fall-Winter 2017 collection, the 22 cm by 15.5 cm by 12 cm woven straw basket comes with the iconic Bamboo top handle, completing the look that’s part-vintage, part-hipster and all Alessandro Michele.

Lined with the prettiest of linen fabrics that come printed with tiny roses, the SGD2580 bag is now available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore. The good news? There are only 2 pieces for sale, which means you’ll be hard-pressed to see another with the same bag walking down Orchard Road.
