Gucci has been one of the world’s most beloved labels for decades. Under the current direction of Alessandro Michele, the Italian fashion powerhouse has taken a distinctive turn toward the romantic and eclectic. Every season sees a new selection of luxurious pieces that expertly blend the pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship with the contemporary style of the 21st century.
While there are plenty of clothing pieces that stand out in Gucci’s current collection, it is the accessories that seem to be some of fashion’s most sought-after pieces. From an updated take on a timeless bag to the shoes that you can pair with everything in your closet, keep reading to discover the four essential Gucci accessories of this summer.
1. Arli Medium Shoulder Bag
At the launch of Gucci’s Cruise collection at the historic Promenade des Alyscamps, the brand debuted their new Arli bags which were inspired by and named after the ancient French city of Arles and brought back from their 1970s archives. Quickly touted for its slim, vintage-inspired silhouette blended with Alessandro Michele’s quirky aesthetics, the Arli medium shoulder bag is guaranteed to give your entire closet a timeless update.
This season, the Arli comes in shoulder and top handle bags and features oversized “GG” hardware. The two interior compartments will ensure your essentials remain organized so that you can keep your life as polished and put-together as this bag! If you are looking for something a little smaller, the Arli small shoulder bag is just as beautiful, but slightly more compact.
2. Crystal Gucci Hair Comb
Undoubtedly, hair accessories are one of the biggest trends of the year with fashionable girls around the world decorating their tresses with barrettes, scrunchies, and headbands. After all, why should all the fun hair accessories be reserved for young girls?
While there is a wide range of options on the market, there is no denying that the Crystal Gucci Hair Comb is the most exciting and the one that has garnered the most attention.
Created with luxurious tortoiseshell plexiglass, this hair comb has 12 teeth and a curved silhouette featuring rhinestone crystals pronouncing “GUCCI.” While you could use this piece to comb your hair each morning, its stand-out design is best worn as a component of a fantastic hairstyle or to inject some luxury into an otherwise basic outfit.
3. Charlotte Slip-On Espadrilles
One of the most timeless summer classics due to their versatility and ease of wear, espadrilles are a staple in every well-dressed woman’s closet. This season, Gucci’s Charlotte slip-on espadrilles are the essential summer shoe and are likely to become a cult classic.
Updated for the Cruise collection, these espadrilles are made in Spain from soft matelassé leather with a chevron pattern and finished with the emblematic Double G hardware. This year, wear the updated silhouette with everything from your favorite high-waisted vintage jeans to an on-trend tie-dye slip dress or with your Gucci silk pants with watercolor flowers.
4. Flora Gothic Print Scarf
Gucci’s current kooky bohemian vibe is epitomized in its selection of printed scarves that elevate any outfit. Each one demonstrates the attention to detail that Gucci is known for, particularly the sophisticated pink and ivory white silk Flora Gothic scarf and the Spring Bouquet modal silk shawl – both of which feature timeless spring/summer colorways.
Alternatively, if you are looking for something more statement-producing, opt for the colorful “Guccify Yourself” print silk scarf or the “GucciGhost” from the permanent collection. No matter which one you choose, complete your look with an oversized blazer, straight-leg cropped jeans and the Charlotte slip-on espadrilles.
