Anyone with a social media platform and a relative interest in fashion can tell that Gucci is definitely having a moment - especially when it comes to bags. Gucci has become one of the most popular brands amongst bloggers and social media influencers. With their images focussed primarily on the bag, it seems like Gucci is absolutely everywhere.
Alessandro Michele, appointed Creative Director of Gucci in January 2015, took the brand in an entirely new direction. Michele made the eccentric, but unlikely, combination of mix-matched patterns work together. Gucci flourishes by finding the beauty in the chaos of clashing fabrics - hence why it is one of the most known, desired, and recognisable brands in the world.
Michele's flamboyant approach to fashion doesn't translate just through Gucci's clothes - but through their bags as well. With their loud colours, embellished detailing, prominent clasps, floral motifs, and of course their "GG" logo - even someone that isn't fashion focussed knows a Gucci bag when they see one.
The trendiest, and most popular, line of Gucci bags amongst young women and their social media worlds is the Marmont collection. From their chain and leather strap flap bags, to their cross body camera bags, classic handbags, messenger bags, bucket bags, backpacks, shoulder bags, even belt bags (which Gucci brought back in style) - the Marmont collection consists of the same logo: their signature, antique gold-tone "GG" logo, outstanding on every piece.
Gucci makes a point to give their clients endless options when it comes to buying one of their bags. Take your pick from materials including matelassé chevron leather, exotic leathers, smooth leather, canvas, suede, and velvet - but it doesn't end just there. Gucci bags are also available with embellished pearls, animal studs, decorative floral patterns, monogram prints, the list goes on. To say the least, whatever your style is, or whatever look you're after - you can be sure Gucci has something for you.
Besides the Marmont collection, other popular styles of Gucci bags include; the Sylvie, the Dionysus, the Padlock, the Emily Guccissma, the Soho line, and the GG Bloom line.
Their originality and uniqueness of the "in-your-face" styled bags demand your attention. However, a basic black or a single-coloured bag always tend to be the most popular. With their youthful and fun appearance, but always practical function, a Gucci is the perfect option for any confident woman on the go - whether that be rushing to work, casual brunches with friends, or sipping Martinis on rooftop patios, you'll always know you've added the right statement accessory to your outfit with your trusted Gucci bag by your side.
