Here's Why You Should Get Excited About Gucci's New Towards Summer Collection

The part we're most excited about? Gucci's iconic bags – Marmont 2.0, Ophidia, Sylvie and Rajah – updated for the upcoming vacation season.

What: Made for the time of the year just before temperatures soar, Gucci‘s Towards Summer features a collection of vacation-inspired accessories, ready-to-wear pieces and footwear – most of which are made of straw matt. But we think the highlights of this collection lie in, of course, the Maison’s most iconic bags, updated this season to look more relaxed and sandy beach-ready. Think lots of woven, lightweight and soft raffia.

Why you should get excited: While the bags retain Gucci’s signature hardware and distinctive ornamentation (such as the Double G, tiger’s head and green-red-green Web stripe), they’re now re-styled with unique blends of materials like straw matt, snakeskin trim and a variation of linings from rose-print viscose to cotton-linen. These sophisticated combinations make the bags versatile enough to suit all occasions whether it’s a weekend brunch or formal evening out.

One more thing to get excited about? We’re dying to get our hands on the brand’s exclusive online selection of the bag collection’s key pieces, as well as hats and other accessories that all come in the lovely straw matt fabric.

The Towards Summer bags, ready-to-wear items and exclusive online collection are now available in stores and online at
