There is probably nothing in this post you haven’t already seen online as far as theFall-Winter 2016 Womens Gucci collection is concerned, but because the devil is always in the details as far as I’m concerned, here are some snapshots I took during Gucci’s F/W16 press presentation a couple of months back in Taipei.

First up, Gucci’s bag-of-the-season, the GG Marmont which also includes these sling shoulder bags. Available in a variety of finishes, from calfskin leather to velvet, its most distinctive features (there are two) include the vintage-looking GG clasp on the front along with the embroidered heart on the back. Then there’s the chevron quilting on both the front and the back that gives it that old-is-new-again look that’s not only very now, it’s also very Alessandro Michele as far as Gucci is concerned. For more information on its colours, prices and sizes, follow this link here.

Another bag that’s impossible to love is this Dionysus (SGD5040) that comes with its own embroidered patches made of everything from beads to coloured stones to rhinestones. Depicting different shapes and themes, each patch is made by expert craftsmen in India who sew each bead, stone and rhinestone onto fine organza fabric before they are attached to the GG Supreme canvas bag in Italy. In other words (or in this case, word), it’s art.

Ok, so I cheated a little with this one. Not exactly from the womens collection (I nicked this from the boys), this is another fine example of the amount of work that goes into each Gucci bag or SLG you see in stores today. Dozens of buttons are hand-embroidered onto a felt fabric base before the entire design (it’s a butterfly) is applied onto this clutch, complete with bee and floral motifs. Priced at SGD1870,you can hit this link to see the whole bag in its full glory.

And yes, I’m a sucker when it comes to detailing, so I’ll end this post with a capture of just two of the many rings for both men and women you’ll find in Gucci stores at Marina Bay Sands and Paragon. These, along with the RTW, SLGs and shoes, are all breathtakingly beautiful, instantly desirable and of course, wonderfully finished. What’s not to love, really.

How To Check Gucci Authenticity: A Few Starting Points

Categories:Other Brands

There are a lot of fake Gucci bags online given the fact that they are so sought-after nowadays. So either if you’re looking for the real deal or good Gucci replica bags, I think these Gucci authenticity tips will help you out.

Gucci Authenticity – Common Features

First of all, let’s start with the inside tag. All Gucci bags except the vintage ones feature a leather inside tag with the “Gucci Made in Italy” stamp on it and a registered trademarked circled “R”. So getting to know the font, deepness, spacing, positioning of the logo and that of the circled R really well will prove to be extremely useful for many Gucci styles. First of all, you need to make sure the font is correct and that the letters don’t touch each other. And here’s an interesting Gucci authenticity tip: the left side of the “U” in Gucci should be thicker than the right. But you should also check the letters “G” and the two Cs carefully.

Gucci Leather Tab

Another interesting thing about this leather tab/label is that the seams across it match the color of the lining, not the color of the leather! But on any other leather trim on the bag the stitching should match the color of the leather.

The serial number should be on the back of this leather tabs and feature two rows of 6 numbers that are embossed close together. Make sure both rows are centered. Again, this rule does not apply to vintage Gucci bags!

Gucci replica bags have really blossomed this year, with all the new beautiful designs that have been released. The already iconic Dionysus bag, the Sylvie bag, the GG Marmont bag or the Gucci Padlock bag and all their numerous variations are some of the most coveted replica bags of the moment.

As I’ve told you before, if you’re trying to learn more about Gucci authenticity, the first site you should start your research with is the official Gucci site. They are quite generous with the pictures they show of each bag, which is really useful if you want to study the details of a certain Gucci bag.

If you are interested in Monogram Gucci bags, then the first thing you need to check is the Monogram GG canvas, of course. And here are some Gucci authenticity tips for you: even though the two Gs face each other and are really close, they should not be touching. Then you can notice that the horizontal line of each G forms a shape that looks like a triangle (reversed for the left G).

The same rules apply to the Gucci Guccissima leather as well. But please take into account that even though some guides say that the Monograms should line up even where the sides are stitched together, this is not true (just like in the case of the Monogram LV bags). What is true though is that the GGs will be the same throughout the handbag, which means the letters will have the same size, shape and font.

Here’s the bottom of the Gucci GG Supreme duffle bag. Notice how the monograms don’t line up around the stitching? Just so you know, I took the photo from the official Gucci site:

I know there are a lot of articles on how to check Gucci authenticity online and that can be confusing. Please keep in mind that many of these guides were written years ago, so some of the information there might not apply to new Gucci styles. Let’s take the fake Gucci duffle bag for example because I know this is still one of the most popular styles from the brand.

Finding cheap Gucci luggage used to be easier before for a reason. The Gucci Duffle bag made of canvas had textile lining and therefore the costs were not very high either. But things are different with the new Gucci duffle bags. The interior is made from “microfiber lining with a suede-like finish” which is harder to copy and also more expensive. So if you’re looking for cheap Gucci luggage, maybe you should stick to the older pieces.

New Gucci GG Caleido Duffle Luxurious Lining

You should, of course, check to see if the stitching is smooth and even. If you find uneven or sloppy stitching, the bag is probably a fake. Another general Gucci authenticity tip is to check the hardware engravings: clasps, zippers, bottom stud, hooks or any other engraved piece of hardware. The engraving should be clean, clear and the weight of the hardware is also important because authentic Gucci hardware is made of solid metal, so it should be on the heavy side. Needless to say that authentic Gucci hardware doesn’t rust or chip off.

I’m sorry I wasn’t able to offer more tips on Gucci authenticity for vintage bags. But I don’t feel like I have enough information, so I think it’s the right thing to do.

GUCCI BAMBOO BACKPACK

Categories:Other Brands

Gucci-Bamboo-Backpack-4

It was just a matter of time before Gucci came up with their own Backpack. But who had thought that they would mix the style with elements from the ‘Classic Bamboo’ Collection. It’s a clever move to differentiate theirs from the rest.

But anyways, I hope you don’t mind I use the word again: ‘they are super cute’. The size is very lady-like if you can imagine it clinching on your back. I love the buckle on the back, I love the extra tassels that slings when you are on your way downtown, I love the Bamboo closure on both side pockets.

In short, it’s a sophisticated style with a retro edge.

A bamboo handle is crafted on the top (for the moments when you want to carry it by hand), the signature is exactly how I like it – printed on the center, small and gentle.

Made from leather, with front double pockets, it comes with a flap with buckle closure and interior drawstring closure (so basically, with double security!) The double shoulder strap can be adjusted and the edges are hand-painted. The inside has an open pocket and phone case. Measuring 12.2’ x 11.8’ x 3’ (W x H x D),

GUCCI BROADWAY CHAIN SHOULDER BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Gucci-Broadway-chain-shoulder-bag

A bag that is fit for a royalty, yes, those are the very words that will describe and could probably do justice to Gucci’s Broadway Chain Shoulder Bag. It’s too pretty that it might probably be a fashion crime not to own it. We are that enamored with this monarchical blue-blooded bag.

First things first, we are in love with the metallic light blue leather which was showcased in a padded chevron pattern. And oh, if you couldn’t get enough of this shoulder bag, you can also opt to buy the other color in metallic gold leather.

What more, the sliding chain strap is definitely a touch of royalty. You can wear the bag over your shoulders or it can be worn as a top handle, thanks to its adjustable strap. And last but not the least, the feline head placed in the center actually made all the difference! Talk about hearing you roar with your fashionable Gucci bag!

It measures 7.5′ x 6′ x 2′ (W x H x D) inches and is priced $1750 USD or €1390 euro via Gucci store.

Gucci Offers DIY Service To Customize Your Dionysus Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Alessandro Michele seems determined to constantly remain in headlines for his various projects as creative director of Gucci. His latest innovation to stay up there is a new iteration of the already-classic Dionysus bag, which was released during the fall 2015 season. It was with this handbag that we caught a glimpse of the changes Gucci would undergo because of Michele; it married the classic Gucci symbol with some modern edge, which is essentially where the brand has landed today.

Gucci Offers DIY Service To Customize Your Dionysus Bag

The bag has undergone many different styles, from florals and solid colors to patterns with fun, different embroideries, so you would think a new styling of the same bag wouldn’t be groundbreaking enough to hit some headlines. But there is something truly special about this bag styling, because it is all put into the hands of the consumer.

You’re still getting that iconic boxy yet slim handbag, and it is still secured by a double-ended horseshoe closure with tiger heads on either end, which is where the namesake of the bag came in, as a nod to Dionysus, the Greek god. This is the general shape of each bag, and that much isn’t made to be customized.

However, it is the DIY patch and embellishment choices that help personalize Gucci’s Dionysus bags. Only the medium and large sizes can be customized, but hey, that just gives you an extra excuse to treat yourself to a luxury handbag!

The embroidered patches you have to choose from include different flowers, insects, and snakes, among others. Other styling options come in the form of possible initial monograms (with a choice of decking them out with stunning Swarovski crystals), trim, or hardware.

As Michele says, it is important “that the way you dress is how you feel, and that men and women should feel authentic and free in the expression of themselves.” This is the general philosophy that the designer uses when approaching his design work, and this is one project that is so fitting of the phrase.

Gucci Offers DIY Service To Customize Your Dionysus Bag

People all have their unique styles and quirks, but one thing remains constant: the Gucci Dionysus bag is hot. Michele recognizes the blatant success of his design, and decided to let the customer’s individual style win out as well.

This is such a crafty, classic DIY project, that if another brand had come out with the same idea it might have come out a bit too corny. But following the ever popular #GucciGram stint on Instagram, Gucci lovers everywhere are longing to take part in the brand’s inner workings. This is a great way to allow for that freedom.

Unfortunately, this whole process is only available in Milan, at the Via Montenapoleone flagship – for now. It will be expanded out to other major global cities, but we’re just hoping it also expands onto the online market, so this awesome, individualized project can reach people everywhere.

It has also been mentioned that Gucci’s loafer slippers, Ace sneakers, and certain ready-to-wear pieces will eventually follow suit and allow for customization. But for now, the Gucci Dionysus customizations will keep us more than preoccupied. We’ll be keeping an eye out on social media for all the fabulous.
