The Spring/Summer of2010 was a historic day for connoisseurs of premiere luxury leather and fashion goods. It marks the long awaited arrival and reimagining of Gucci’s most revered handbag designs, Gucci’s New Bamboo Bag.
The original Bamboo Bag was first created in 1947 and it was a successful testament to Gucci’s unwavering dedication to quality and style. Gucci’s Bamboo bags were adorned by countless celebrities, sealing its reputation as one of the most beloved handbags in the world.
Riding on its wave of success is The Gucci New Bamboo, which is comprised of 140 separate pieces painstakingly hand assembled by an expert artisan. The bag now comes in both its historical shape and in a new larger version. Sleek leather borders embellish its exterior and the use of nickel for the bag’s hardware gives it a cool touch. The bamboo handle has been augmented with a second strap of draped metal chain with a braided base. Sexy!
The New Bamboo bags come in Pigskin, Cellarius, Hyper-modern bonded neoprene and rubberized white or black python versions. Each of these bags are a clear nob to Gucci’s impeccable design and workmanship. Gucci also has exclusive models of the New Bamboo bags in their flagship stores.
Gucci’s New Bamboo bags are stylistically distinctive and they look set to redefine and shake up the fashion and luxury industry once again.
