It has been said that sometimes all you need is a good bag and a great pair of shoes, and everything else will fall into place. Maybe not your life, but your wardrobe for the day, definitely. And with Gucci gearing up with their Towards Summer 2019 collection (you know, a capsule), you can be assured of enough essentials to set your season right. Take for example this pair that’s shown above, the Ophidia Mini Bag that looks like it was woven from straw, but isn’t. It is actually made of fabric that mimics straw, then finished with cream/brown snakeskin. Priced at SGD2480, it won’t break the bank, is a fun enough everyday piece, and will be relevant for many seasons to come since the whole wicker trend isn’t going anywhere just yet.
And to complete the look, you could go with something like this Horsebit Loafer (SGD1070), one that’s made of vintage-y beige canvas that’s finished with Gucci’s iconic horsebit emblem. Yes, this is technically for the boys, so ladies who want something similar can look out for the Princeton Slipper that comes in the same finish. Most importantly, all the pieces are available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore so if you were ever looking for summer essentials, well, here you go.
