Visit Gucci store at The Galleria Mall as they present the Gucci Diana Bag — the bamboo handle tote first presented by the House in 1991 is reimagined by Alessandro Michele in the Gucci Diana.
Alessandro Michele explores the concept of embodiment in the new line, which is
designed to evoke an aesthetic, but also an attitude. At the edge of inspiration, he
takes a step beyond in a contemplation on the vast and impactful influence that a
person, or perhaps, a persona, has had across generations and cultures.
The Gucci Diana is reflective of a certain era—even its silhouette echoes a moment
in which practicality took its rightful place in the wardrobe—but the line maintains
its timeless appeal. It represents the notion of style in constant evolution, fitting
perfectly into the conventions of sophistication one day and undergoing reinvention
the next, speaking to the House’s message of fluidity, freedom, and embracing
fashion as a powerful medium of self-expression.

Diamond, sapphire and mother of pearl embellish the Lady Féerie timepiece in elegance to evoke dreams and wonders. A fairy crafted with diamonds, seated on a cloud of iridescent white mother-of-pearl, this feminine figure points out the minutes with her magic wand; meanwhile, the Moon harbors the passing hours in a window of mother-of-pearl, haloed by a gentle glow. The Maison’s creation interprets the measurement of time, as an invitation to imagine, wander, revel in happiness.
