‘Every cloud has a silver lining,’ goes an ancient saying. In the case of the newly released Spring-Summer 2016 editions of Gucci’s Dionysus bags that are now in stores locally, their cloud also comes with a phoenix, a bee and what looks like a giant chrysanthemum amongst the flora. An exercise in more on more on the GG supreme canvas no less, the 30 cm by 21 cm shoulder sling is decidedly beautiful, and one that clearly shows the new artistic leanings of the storied Italian luxury house under the rein of Creative Director Alessandro Michele.
If, however, you prefer something with winged creatures of a more delicate kind, there’s also this variation, complete with large bright blooms surrounding a single butterfly. More kitschy 60s than the oriental-themed one earlier, you can decide which one is for you by heading to Gucci boutiques islandwide, where they will retail for SGD5500 and SGD4810 for the bird and butterfly variants respectively.
