This season, for the first time Gucci will have a wide selection of its Croco bags available in the Middle East. These exclusive and limited edition bags are some of the most exclusive designs from the Italian House making them collector’s pieces and hugely popular with those who appreciate fine craftsmanship and attention to details. The pieces are on offer at The Dubai Mall store in a wide selection for the first time. We discover two of these beautiful creations.
The Gucci Thiara handbag is available in various bold colours that emphasise the beauty of the crocodile skin making it a collector’s dream. Crafted in Italy from high-shine crocodile leather, this bag also features a signature bamboo top handle – first introduced in 1947, and roaring feline head encrusted with sparkling crystals and two stones on the eyes. Available in a small size, this bag is the perfect evening accessory. The green crocodile leather featured will offer a bold pop of colour to your summer look.
The Sylvie 1969 was designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, based on a piece from the House’s archive, originally designed in 1969. The bag resembles its original with a distinctive narrower gold-toned metal chain hardware fitted to the flap and body. The classic design is reconfigured in contemporary shapes and comes with a top handle. Available in rich sophisticated crocodile tones, the Sylvie 1969 comes with rigid construction and with detachable chain shoulder strap with Marine chain details.
The Croco bags are available at The Dubai Mall Gucci boutique.
