New Handbag Designs from Gucci
Well, it’s that time of the year again. All of the big design houses are releasing their new designs to the hungry masses, and Gucci is no exception. Unless you have been stranded on a desert isle for the last thirty years, you have undoubtedly heard of Gucci. They have been reigning over the fashion world for a great many years, and not totally without warrant. Gucci makes top quality, stylish apparel and accessories for the distinguishing shopper.
Guccio Gucci founded this fashion empire in Florence, Italy in 1906. Originally, their core business was the production of leather products, particularly saddlery. By 1938, the House of Gucci had grown into a reputable company producing a wide variety of products, and they opened their first retail shop on the Via Condotti in Rome.
Gucci’s new line of handbags for the Fall/Winter 2005/2006 season is yet another spectacular addition to their fine line of designer accessories. My particular favorite from this collection is called "Braided Straps". It is constructed from the beautiful patterned material Gucci has become so well known for, and is beige, ebony, and white in color. The trim and straps are crafted from fine white leather, and you guess it……the straps are braided! I am utterly in love with this bag.
I have also taken a liking to the "Bardot" model. It is a stunning beauty much like its namesake, Brigitte Bardot. This purse is crafted from warm, supple, dark brown leather with a wonderful pattern embossed into it. The metal clasp is very slick, and appears to be very durable. It comes with an 8 inch shoulder belt, and the trademark Gucci logo is stamped into all of the polished metal hardware.
It is always so difficult for a young lady to choose the perfect purse. We seem to collect them the way boys collect comic books. I have given up on trying to curb my desire for new handbags, and Gucci bags are truly the ones I love most! I quite literally lust after their purses. I love being the envy of ladies everywhere as I strut down the block with my Gucci handbags, pretending that I am a supermodel on the runway. Only Gucci has that effect on me!
