I know what you are thinking. Why is Bagaholicboy posting something that will traditionally only be available in late December/early January since it is from the Cruise 2017 collection? For starters, I’m loving loving loving loving loving (yes, that means love infinity) this bag so so so so so much (yes, you get the idea). The other reason? As far as Gucci is concerned, selected pieces from this collection will be available in Singapore from October 2016, which also means I better start prepping you all on the must-buys from this season.
First making its runway debut in London, there isn’t exactly an official name yet so I’m just calling it the Coral Snake Messenger for now.
So why do I love it so? Well, here are the reasons. For starters, nothing can beat the amazingly detailed red coral snake on the front of the bag, which almost looks like it was painted on by hand. Well, it’s printed actually, and on a grain leather body no less, which is another big plus for me. Why? Grained leather means it’s naturally hardier and will stand up to scratches better, so it’s something I almost always look for first in any bag. Because I can be a klutz like that.
Measuring 29 cm by 19 cm by 11 cm, I also adore its zip-around opening, and the top handle, but the bit that gets me falling hardest has got to be that web sling in blue/red/white that’s just freaking gorgeous. Part of the womens collection, I’ll have no qualms buying it and using it as my own ‘small days’ bag, which should also double-up nicely as a camera bag for my mini DSLR. Not that I own one of those yet, but priorities, right?
Priced at SGD2350 in Singapore, please march down to Gucci soonest and put yourself on the wait list because I have a feeling once they come in they’ll slither right out.
