There is a new It-bag waiting for all fashion lovers: GUCCI‘s SYLVIE BAG. Featuring a number of the house’s iconic elements, this new amazing style makes use of the well-known GUCCI web stripe and combines this with a distinctive ornamental chain with a spring-buckle closure, a detail that lends the style a bourgeois confidence.
The house web motif appears as a woollen insert underneath the chain detail – the two decorative elements, hard and soft, combining to create a characterful signature for this neat, structured handbag.
The shoulder strap is in grosgrain and also features the house web design, and metallic details on its tips. However, the web colour-combination on this grosgrain strap is always different to that on the bag’s web insert, a playful mismatch that contributes to the SYLVIE’s eccentric appeal. For those occasions when a more subdued look is appropriate, each bag also comes with an alternative, matching shoulder strap in plain leather.
I love the new SYLVIE BAG but will definitely wait for the Pre-fall 2016 version in pink. Isn’t that one adorable?
