Gucci-Lilith-Bag-Collection-9

Gucci is reinforcing its game once again in the luxury bag industry when it released its Lilith Bag Collection during the brand’s Resort 2017 Collection. Seductive, infernal, and visually appealing, the Lilith bags are incomparable to none.

But hey, what’s in a bag name? If ever you wonder why the name of a woman is used as a reference to a Gucci bag, well ladies, a name always has a story to tell. Based from ancient mythology, Lilith was the first wife of Adam who later became a demon. The serpent in the Lilith bags perfectly represents her.

The Gucci Lilith leather shoulder bag is sultry thanks to its printed snakeskin detail along the flap and the snake head push lock closure. Look closely, the snake head is a definite spot-on with the turquoise crystal stone eyes looking right back at you. This bag has a detachable chain shoulder strap so you can opt to wear it either as a shoulder, cross-body or a handy handbag. It also has an interior open pocket and measures 9” x 5.5” x 2” (W x H x D) inches and is priced $2390 USD, €1980 euro, £1610 GBP.

Another bag worth having in this collection is the Gucci Lilith leather top handle bag. This one is a visual stunner with the grosgrain bow detail and a bamboo top handle. The textured snake head with piercing crystal stones set in the eyes is something you couldn’t dare miss! This beauty has two shoulder straps: a detachable and adjustable grosgrain shoulder strap and the other one is a detachable and adjustable leather shoulder strap. It has an interior zip and smartphone pockets. The small size size is measured 10.5″ x 9.5″ x 1.5″ (W x H x D) and is priced $3500 USD, €2980 euro, £2420 GBP, $4300 AUD, ¥434160 JPY.

Gucci Lilith Top Handle Bag

Categories:Other Brands

If you asked me what bag at Gucci today still epitomises the past and the present as far as their handbags are concerned, this would be it. Those familiar with the Italian luxury house’s bags of yore will find the bamboo handle familiar, a Gucci signature that’s still keep alive and well under the auspices of sitting Creative Director Alessandro Michele.

Having seen the process for myself when I visited their bag production facility in the outskirts of Florence some years back, I can tell you this much. As simple as it might look, each bamboo handle still has to go through hours and hours of skilled craftsmanship, a single artisan crouched over an open flame as he exposes the bamboo rods to heat, slowly bending them bit by bit before it takes its eventual curved shape. Layers upon layers of a special varnish are also applied to give it that shine, as well as to keep it in an almost pristine condition for years to come.

From the handle down, however, and it’s a different story. Obviously inspired by vintage references, Michele draws upon a new icon of house, the snake, and uses it to great effect on the Lilith. Named so because it’s believed to be the name of Adam’s first wife in midrashic literature (you know how the story ends) with the snake tempting both of them.

But beyond the name, the bag is also a beautiful example of vintage-chic that’s big at Gucci these days, the bag sold with two slings, one of leather, the other in grosgrain. The perfect bag for ladies-who-lunch, it also comes in at least 2 sizes at the moment, a Small (26 cm by 24 cm) and a Medium (33 cm by 22 cm) with both sizes now available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore, including the newly-opened flagship at ION Orchard.
