Gucci Offers DIY Service To Customize Your Dionysus Bag

Other Brands

Alessandro Michele seems determined to constantly remain in headlines for his various projects as creative director of Gucci. His latest innovation to stay up there is a new iteration of the already-classic Dionysus bag, which was released during the fall 2015 season. It was with this handbag that we caught a glimpse of the changesGucci would undergo because of Michele; it married the classic Gucci symbol with some modern edge, which is essentially where the brand has landed today.

The bag has undergone many different styles, from florals and solid colors to patterns with fun, different embroideries, so you would think a new styling of the same bag wouldn’t be groundbreaking enough to hit some headlines. But there is something truly special about this bag styling, because it is all put into the hands of the consumer.

You’re still getting that iconic boxy yet slim handbag, and it is still secured by a double-ended horseshoe closure with tiger heads on either end, which is where the namesake of the bag came in, as a nod to Dionysus, the Greek god. This is the general shape of each bag, and that much isn’t made to be customized.

However, it is the DIY patch and embellishment choices that help personalize Gucci’s Dionysus bags. Only the medium and large sizes can be customized, but hey, that just gives you an extra excuse to treat yourself to a luxury handbag!

The embroidered patches you have to choose from include different flowers, insects, and snakes, among others. Other styling options come in the form of possible initial monograms (with a choice of decking them out with stunning Swarovski crystals), trim, or hardware.

As Michele says, it is important “that the way you dress is how you feel, and that men and women should feel authentic and free in the expression of themselves.” This is the general philosophy that the designer uses when approaching his design work, and this is one project that is so fitting of the phrase.

People all have their unique styles and quirks, but one thing remains constant: the Gucci Dionysus bag is hot. Michele recognizes the blatant success of his design, and decided to let the customer’s individual style win out as well.

This is such a crafty, classic DIY project, that if another brand had come out with the same idea it might have come out a bit too corny. But following the everpopular #GucciGram stint on Instagram, Gucci lovers everywhere are longing to take part in the brand’s inner workings. This is a great way to allow for that freedom.

Unfortunately, this whole process is only available in Milan, at the Via Montenapoleone flagship – for now. It will be expanded out to other major global cities, but we’re just hoping it also expands onto the online market, so this awesome, individualized project can reach people everywhere.

It has also been mentioned that Gucci’s loafer slippers, Ace sneakers, and certain ready-to-wear pieces will eventually follow suit and allow for customization. But for now, the Gucci Dionysus customizations will keep us more than preoccupied. We’ll be keeping an eye out on social media for all the fabulous.

Rochas Resort 2017 Collection


Sensuality and innocence are the feelings and sensations Alessandro dell’Acqua wanted to evoke with his newestRochas resort 2017 collection, which could be regarded as ethereal, feminine and almost mystique, indeed. For the upcoming cruise season, Alessandro dell’Acqua, whose debut Rochas fashion show took place in February 2014, is both celebrating the house’s roots and revamping its hallmarks with his seductive uber-feminine take on fashion.

Rochas Resort 2017 Collection

Dell’Acqua’s women are strong, confident and independent, with an attractive sensual femininity, which often leads the designer to veer off from the brand’s heritage to a more glam-rock kind of fashion. For this reason, the Neapolitan fashion designer often showcases a neutral color palette that mainly features blush, white, beige and light gray tones, aside from a few total-black ensembles. And his signature delicate hues are to be found in the Rochas resort 2017 collection too, which however manages to highlight dell’Acqua’s artisanal skills with rich, more opulent shades.

Balancing innovation with tradition, as well as texture with the richness in colors (like many of his contemporaries, he doesn’t leave anything by chance, choosing the fabrics depending on the color/pattern scheme utilized), dell’Acqua focused on billowy figures and layered silhouettes, interrupting the airy lines with clean-cut coats and knee-length classy pants that gave the collection a slightly tomboyish allure.

Rochas’ infamous 2/3-length coat is, of course, present in the line too and, surprisingly here its length got translated to most of the skirts too. As for the pockets on the skirts the French fashion house became famous for, dell’Acqua geometrically attached them on the cozy coats instead.

Matching blush blouses create an interesting tor-sur-toneffect with the coats, leaving it up to the fabrics and textures to create a pleasing contrast (whilst the coats were made of a warm wool material, the blouses feature a sleek silk material).

Rochas Resort 2017 Collection

As for the slightly brighter ensembles, dell’Acqua had fun experimenting with both floral patterns and bold blue color touches, the ultimate expression of which features an oversized, heavyweight floor-length matte blue maxi dress that somehow manages to accentuate the figure adding dynamicity to the collection, despite being meant not to hug the curves.

When it comes to the botanical prints, Alessandro dell’Acqua used them to create both Seventies-inspired off-the-shoulder dresses tight at the waistlines, and Eighties modest dresses with squared shoulders. Although differing in styles, all the dresses feature common frilled and pleated details, put either on the hems or sides.

Are Millennials Less Concerned About Handbag Brand Names?

Other Brands

by Maura Carlin

A new report says millennials are lagging… in bagging purses. A study by the NPD Group in partnership with Stylistics finds that although handbag sales increased by 5% since 2014 in the United States, purchases by the 18-34 year olds rose only 2 percent. Baby boomers are picking up the slack and treating themselves to top shelf brand, it seems. Perhaps even impulsively.

Millennials, on the other hand, treat purse adoption with the careful, detailed analytic approach usually reserved for automobiles, rather than clothing.  NPD Group characterized the “handbag purchase journey” as “complex, rational and emotional.” As stated: “the shopping task starts more than a month in advance among 41% of millennials, and 61% of them start browsing for choices online first before pulling the plug on a final purchase.” This group also is more concerned with quality, details and style than brand names. In other words, move over Chanel… here comes Mansur Gavriel.

Color me cynical, but surely the availability (or lack thereof) of disposable income plays a role. Isn’t this the generation having trouble making a living wage upon completion of its education and confronting astronomical debt on student loans? I haven’t seen the NPD Group report and don’t know whether these factors were considered – or whether the shopping pattern is a change from when boomers were 18-34 years old.

High end brands offer an aspirational lifestyle/look. Isn’t that supposed to be something to look forward to as you age? If you care. In my early 20s (confession, I am not a millennial), I could neither afford nor imagine shelling out for a Chanel classic flap, even though I admired chic Coco style. By my early 30s, I lusted after a Chanel suit… but couldn’t justify it before having children (and not knowing how my figure would change).


Millennials, whom are defined as those ages 18-34 in 2015, now number 75.4 million, surpassing the 74.9 million Baby Boomers (ages 51-69). And Generation X (ages 35-50 in 2015) is projected to pass the Boomers in population by 2028. Is spending really ‘age’ related or strictly ‘disposable income’ related? L to R @swedishandstylish @upcloseandstylish @bycamelia

Do you think Millennials are more cautious and less brand conscious? Or do they just have less disposable income? Will this change as they age? Let’s discuss in the conversation.
