Gucci launches Dionysus 'Dubai' bag
Earlier this week eight cities from around the world were picked by Italian luxury brand Gucci to have a bag specially created for them.
The launch of Gucci's Dionysus "Dubai" bag, reaffirms that this city really is the international fashion capital of the Middle East.
It started when two years ago Chanel chose Dubai as their destination of choice for their Cruise fashion show, then last year hip New York label Public School came to Dubai for their Pre-Fall showing and this was closely followed by leading British designer, Stella McCartney's presentation of her Spring 2016 ready to wear collection.
Earlier this week eight cities from around the world were picked by Italian luxury brand Gucci to have a bag specially created for them. Rome, New York, London, Paris, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo are the other cities. Only limited editions of this edition of the Gucci Dionysus bag will be available.
It is almost a year since Alessandro Michele became Gucci's new creative director. The recent recipient of British Fashion Award's, International Designer of the year, Michele has made us want to own everything Gucci.
Michele's Gucci girl is romantic, poetic and unashamedly eccentric. 42-year-old Michele has not only brought in a new look for Gucci, but for fashion. His more whimsical has made every high street brand re-examine its approach to fashion.
The Gucci Dionysus bag was one of Michele's first statements for the brand. This shoulder bag, with its chain straps, boxy yet ladylike shape is already a celebrity favourite. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Dakota Johnson and Salma Hayek have been spotted with this bag.
The Dubai edition features starfish and dragonflies. "Dubai" is embroidered in a leather patch on every bag, and each city's leather patch is a different colour. The colour for Dubai is green.
