10 MUST HAVE GUCCI BAGS FOR 2018
It’s funny how things change. I always used to say I disliked Gucci, I never liked their monogram print, I thought they were old fashioned, but then they got a new designer and all of a sudden they are re-branded and are the brand of the year last year, with everyone coveting their pieces and going nuts for them! It was an insane 2017 for them with their belts, bags, and shoes, as well as their hoodys and famous slogan t-shirts, so 2018 is going to be just as big.
I’ve compiled a list of the 10 must have, best Gucci bags for 2018 so you can keep up to date and be on trend! I already own the Gucci Dionysus Mini Taupe Suede Bag and the Gucci GG Marmont Black Velvet Belt Bag, which I absolutely adore, but there’s always room for more right? My first venture into the brand was actually my Gucci Double GG Leather Belt and since then, I’ve ended up acquiring the Princetown Slippers as well… I just can’t get enough! I am yet to own one of their clothing pieces because I find the price too expensive for something you’d only wear a few times, so I will mostly only save up and spend my money on their bags and shoes, as you can wear them forever and get your money’s worth. With that in mind, check out my top choices below!
This one is my absolute favourite! It’s very similar to my belt bag, but the cross-body version and it’s gorgeous. It’s what I’m saving up for this year, so I can’t recommend it enough! It comes in about 6 different colours and 3 different sizes, but the black mini is the one for me!
This is one of the brand’s newer bags and it’s simply gorgeous! If you love insects or know anyone that studies them, this bag pays a homage to that. I love the addition of the bamboo handle as it’s really unique, but if it was me choosing, I’d pick one that was full leather and didn’t contain anything exotic. Hopefully it’s not real, so if that bothers you (like it does me), skip right onto the next.
Now this bag is their latest design and with the trends on the catwalk gearing towards big totes, shoppers, and bowling style bags, I can see why Gucci were inspired with this version. It reminds me of a Mary Poppins bag, and I love the red shade!
How cute is this? Guccy is the slogan of 2018 for the fashion house, so you can find it on many of their fashionable, trend pieces. This particular bag comes in 3 different metallic shades and is the epitome of adorable, but on trend. It is one of the cheaper styles, so that’s ideal for buying something seasonal like this. I just adore it!
Just like my mini version that I got a year ago, this is the larger bag and it’s stayed in stock all that time, so it’s now a classic. The Dionysus is one of the brand’s famous and iconic styles, so it’s something you should definitely have in your collection if you like Gucci. A taupe or black shade is ideal, so check this one out too as it’s still trending for 2018!
Backpacks were one of the most popular items last year and this year is no exception! Along with belt bags, every designer has a classic backpack in their selection and the Marmont GG version here is ideal. The classic shape, coupled with the quilted leather in red – perfection. It does come in other colours if red is too bold, but why not make a statement?
Just like the black velvet version above, Gucci also do the Marmont Matelasse in leather, which comes in so many different shades! If velvet isn’t for you and you want something a little more robust and wearable, I would say go for the leather! I did see a video review comparison on YouTube which showed the difference between the fabrics with the pros and cons, so check that out below if you love this design but aren’t sure which material to pick.
Sylvie has been on my want list for about 8 months now. It’s no secret that I love embroidery, you only need to look at my clothes to see that, and now all the high street shops are embroidery crazy too. Why not go for the original and choose this iconic bag? How fun and elegant is it? It’s the perfect blend of style, femininity and uniqueness.
Since the brand loves butterflies, I think this bag is perfect for 2018 as it’s also a tote – which is trending. This version features an enamel butterfly as the clasp and is quite simple elsewhere, but elegant enough to be worn to black tie events in my opinion. It’s a great all rounder.
Then finally, we have their updated Dionysus in the new Guccy slogan! Metallic and cream (also in other metallic shades), it’s a great update on the classic. So if you already own a Dionysus, why not branch out and get a seasonal piece too? I can see these taking over Instagram in the coming months!
