Gucci Diamante Pattern Canvas Bags
Great news! Am I seeing what I am seeing? Gucci has launched a 'new' monogram pattern for their bags this season? With the help of translation software online, I managed to get an idea of what this pattern is all about from the source:-)
This Diamante pattern (small diamond shapes forming a diamond pattern) is actually one of the first patterns created by the house of Gucci to launched the Gucci name to the world (I cannot decipher if this pattern was used after 1897, maybe someone who reads Japanese can enlighten me:-P) Less loud and obnoxious than the GG monogram pattern, this Diamante design is more classic and subtle.
I like this pattern. When matched with red leather, the bags are looking pretty cool in my books. A bit retro flavour that brings back memories of those glory days when celebrities like Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy wore Gucci. A tote and duffel bag is designed for the range and they belong to the pre-collection of Fall Winter 2009 season.
Anyone who can read Japanese, do help to translate and post information here:-)
(BTW, the 2 bags are already on sale on the Gucci website:-P. Tote and duffel bag are priced at UK 515 and 795 pounds respectively.)
