Buy it now: Gucci’s all-year-round bag


Christmas jumpers and knitted onesies? Please, I have no truck with that. I’m already in new-season mode, more specifically Resort – AKA the season that keeps on giving. The beauty of Resort is its non climate-dependant versatility. Slouchy parkas, leather trench coats, suede pencil skirts – they’re all relevant, all the time. For Gucci, leather and skins are key for Resort 2014 and naturally that also translates to the bags. Its soft shoulder bags major on tactile skins and classic details like the bamboo toggle fastening on this deer leather flap bag.

We’re talking enduring classics so utility and quality shouldn’t be overlooked (these bags are made in Italy). Note the generous proportions and throw-on styling with a strap that works equally well over a slim-cut blazer or heavyweight coat – clearly designed by a woman! And should you want more choice in finish, it also comes in a lighter brown leather and exotic python…
