Gucci’s knack for reviving House archival pieces in a way that still feels modern has proven to be wildly successful over the past years. One such bag that brought back some of the most famed brand elements (including the Bamboo handle) and a name fitting of a Princess, the Gucci Diana, quickly became a beloved bag for the brand upon its release in 2021.
This bag became one of my most used bags (I have it in green), and the fun elements of a colorful leather strap meant to act as shape maintenance for the handles when exposed to humidity was a playful touch. I felt like everything about the bag was what I was looking for, from heritage and history to updated touches that make it unique.
The New Diana Shape
If the structured square shape didn’t work for your style and a bit more relaxed shoulder bag shape suits your fancy, the new gucci kids gg motif changing bag item may be right for you. Shown here are both the small and medium sizes of a bag that winds up holding more than you’d expect with the magnetic top closure. The bag also holds its shape really well, and the top has an ample opening to make it easy to reach the items you need on the interior.
gucci leather bomber, these bags feature both an optional shoulder strap in the same color as the bag but also one in an offset color (the black has a grey leather strap and the white has a red leather strap). These shoulder straps are adjustable and allow the bag to be carried by the bamboo top handle, over the shoulder, or crossbody.
The Double G hardware is recognizable but subtle in how it sits atop this bag, and on the interior, you’ll find a microfiber lining with a single zip pocket. This shape has a casual elegance about it, and I expect this bag to be one of my go-to’s over the velvet and beyond.
