Carrie Bradshaw (who, entre nous, has become something of a style icon) is back on the streets of Manhattan for season three of And Just Like That…, and she brought #NewGucci with her.

If Sarah Jessica Parker spent much of her recent stint in London for The Savoy Theatre’s run of The Plaza Suite dressed like ’90s Miranda (Vogue staffers were concerned, at one point, that her Momo 2.0 Booties might have to be surgically removed), back on set in Lincoln Center Plaza, she’s once again in pastels, a pussy-bow blouse and some whimsically colored, winningly impractical footwear.

A deeply ingrained sense of millennial nostalgia obligates me to point out that Parker’s tiered, candy-pink skirt is reminiscent of Bradshaw’s tutu in Sex and the City’s original opening credits. More intriguing, though, is her choice of bag. Sarah Jessica Parker’s handbag of choice this time is a bejeweled Jackie, which And Just Like That…’s costume designers, Molly Rogers and Danny Santiago, plucked from Sabato De Sarno’s debut at Gucci during the spring/summer 2024 collections in Milan last September.

Along with elevating the classic Gucci loafer in the most literal sense (the style is now available with 3.5-inch platform heels), De Sarno put his stamp on the Italian house’s signature handbag, which debuted in 1961 and takes its name from Mrs Kennedy, who kept it on heavy rotation in her White House wardrobe. While Alessandro Michele’s successor reimagined the silhouette with a clip closure, it’s his crystal-studded iterations that felt most emblematic of the newcomer’s vision for Gucci.

“There were patent leather minis and patent leather high-slit A-line skirts, the briefest of duchesse satin party dresses embellished with crystal gridwork, and lace-edged slip dresses barely longer than teddies,” wrote Vogue Runway’s Nicole Phelps in her review. “De Sarno’s Gucci is closer to Tom Ford’s, with the upfront sex appeal of those ’60s-by-way-of-the-’90s shapes, and straight riffs on Ford hits, like the white going-out top trimmed in neat rows of crystals that he paired with slouchy faded blue jeans and an embellished Jackie bag.” Given that Carrie was a fan of Tom Ford-era Gucci belt bags at the turn of the millennium – see the episode in which she rekindles things with Aidan the first time – it tracks that she would be on board with #NewGucci. Clearly, this is a woman whose taste, in both statement accessories and significant others, is nothing if not consistent.
