Gucci has been on a roll for quite some time now and it’s honestly only getting better! You can pretty much say that, accessories wise, 2018 has been the year of Gucci. The brand therefore didn’t want to let their fans down and surprised friend and enemy with their newest Fall 2018 collection. Alessandro Michele’s work has been able to wow everyone collection after collection and we simply cannot get enough. For the Pre-Fall 2018 runway, the creative director of Gucci went for crazy innovative and cool designs and we are loving it! Especially the Gucci Thiara Medium Double Envelope Shoulder bag has gotten our attention.
What makes this bag stand out is that the design basically features two bags. So you can look at it like this: you are getting two bags for the price of one! That’s music to our ears isn’t it? The concept is beyond amazing and the execution is pretty perfect as well. Both sides differ quite a lot and thus, you’ll have a bag to wear for whatever mood you’re feeling. There is a simpler, less out-there look on the solid leather side of the bag, which also features Gucci’s iconic GG hardware. There is a more dressed up, eye-catching look on the other side of the bag as well. This side features a gold striped logo print over leather, with Gucci’s painted enamel and crystal encrusted feline head. Both sides are absolutely gorgeous but the dressed up side does have some cons. Due to the feline head you aren’t able to put it flat on a table and it wears a bit uncomfortable on your hip. The design, however, is rather roomy for a small bag like this one (when you compare it with other brands). So there are enough benefits when you purchase this beauty!
The Gucci Thiara is made of smooth leather, which often scratches extremely easily. However, this bag seems to not scratch that easily and it will therefore age very nicely. This bag comes with Gucci’s antique gold hardware, which is super popular right now. The top handle, on the other hand, is made of a shinier gold. This strap is not removable but it does function as a nice detail when wearing it as a clutch. The shoulder strap is adjustable and removable. Both sides feature an interior slit pocket as well as a zippered pocket, which is super functional of course! The dimensions of this gorgeous piece are approximately 26.5 x 15 x 7.5 cm (10.5 x 6 x 3 inch).
