After creating so many colourful and eclectic designs that boast intricate embellishments and playful motifs, it goes without saying that Gucci isn’t afraid to have a little fun. For more proof, take a look at the latest whimsical renditions of the small Dionysus and Ophidia bags.
Two of the house’s most emblematic styles, they recently turned into eye-catching sparkling styles that make a statement. Red silk satin and all-over red sequin embroidery transform both designs, complete with playful strawberry hardware for some fruity fun.
There’s the Dionysus Small Sequin Rectangular Bag (SGD5500). Its iconic textured tiger head closure, a detail that references the Greek god Dionysus, now takes on crystal embellishments. Finished with a sliding chain, you can sling this 25 cm by 13.5 cm wonder over the shoulders or across your body comfortably.
Prefer something a little less structured? Then look to the Ophidia Small Sequin Handbag (SGD3880). At 25 cm wide and 15.5 cm high, it also offers extra versatility with two strap options. A shorter chain top handle allows for elegant shoulder wear, while a longer and wider adjustable canvas shoulder strap provides a more casual crossbody style.
