Here’s an upcoming new season offering from Gucci that fans of both embroidered crests and stripes (in other words, nautical) should take note of. From the Spring-Summer 2015 Mens Gucci collection that’s also featured in the ad campaign, the Nautical Messenger is exactly as the name suggests, a front-flapped, dual-buckle, blue and white striped canvas bag that’s also embellished with its own crest.
What’s more interesting about this messenger is its shoulder strap, which like the messenger also comes striped blue/white but that’s not all. It’s also unusually broad for a strap on a bag this size, the oversized proportion a nice contrast that should also make carrying it over the shoulder much more comfortable.
Priced at SGD3580 for this variation, there will be more in other materials, including one in exotic crocodile that should be rather stunning. Don’t have the images for those yet, so do stay tuned for more updates to come.
On a side note, are scruffy paint splattered jeans making a comeback?
