In the never ending battle between Gucci and Louis Vuitton, Gucci consistently reigns supreme in terms of innovation. Season after season, Frida Giannini presents bagaholics with a myriad of stylish options that do not rely on logomania nor ostentatious collaborations. She understands the rich 90 year history of the brand and has recently focused on reinterpreting classic designs from Gucci's archives. Die-hard Gucci fanatics and celebrities alike flocked to the 1973 and 1921 collections. Now, it's the 1970 line that has fashionistas swooning. What's not to love about this stunning shoulder bag? The large black python scales provide a flawless backdrop for the golden hardware. The chain strap features a leather handle for extra comfort and the tassel adds a touch of old world glamour. Although, this bag is timeless, it also has an edgy vibe that we've come to appreciate from Gucci. The python version will retail for $3,590, while the nubuck variation will be available for $2,100.
