If we had to pick a favourite handbag designer, Gucci would be up there. Loved by some of our favourite celebrities – there is no mistaking a Gucci bag, with its instantly recognisable bold colours, gold hardware and statement stripes. The Sylvia is a style that we hugely covet - the structured square shape, ribbon strap bow detail and decorative curb chain make it the ultimate dress up arm candy. Priced at a cool £1984, it's available in red, orange, black and white and is one of the Italian brand's most popular designs. If you want a piece of the Gucci style but can't stretch your wages to quite that much – online store Kaleidoscope has a near on identical design for just £39! We almost did a double take when we first saw it. The bold tote features the same on trend ribbon, chunky chain trim and lock front detailing. It’s available online now and would be a great addition to your autumn wardrobe.
Gucci bags are so distinctive
Gucci has had a huge 90s revival since Alessandro Michele arrived at the fashion house, heading up the luxury apparel since 2015.
Recognising the core demographic of Gucci shoppers are under 35, many of the bags are made in vibrant colours and patterns and look super chic on our Instagram feed.
It's not just the bags that we love – their statement dresses are hugely popular and directional too. The Duchess of Cambridge is a lover of the brand and one of her most memorable outfits has to be when the mother-of-three wore a tweed Gucci dress at the opening of London's Victoria & Albert museum.
Designed with the brand's signature Web trim in black and red and some gold statement buttons for good measure, the gorgeous frock retailed at a cool £2000 and predictably sold out immediately.
