Bear Brocade

Gucci Brocade Shoulder Bag

Few fall collections sent us swooning quite like Frida Giannini’s darkly romantic series for Gucci. Not far off from this season’s eminent baroque style, the 19th-century inspired assortment filled the runway with rich velvet, tapestry prints and nocturnal hues. In our autumn accessorizing fantasies, we would channel the decadent look every day with the Italian label’s Brocade Bag draped over our shoulders.

A cut above your basic black carryall, this oversized satchel boasts an embossed surface to add depth and texture wherever it is lacking. Sealing its royal stance, antique gold hardware polishes the double flat handles and closing strap. If you find your hands pulsing to grab onto the plush prize, you are not alone—but to make a budget-friendly move without compromising the sovereign aesthetic, we suggest Anthropologie’s lace cut carryall as a magnificent alternative.

Availability: Gucci Brocade Shoulder Bag ($2300). For additional information, visit

P.S. Don’t be afraid to get your boots a little dirty this fall. Sink your feet into SOREL’s iconic styles and you’ll be ready to move from the city to the mountains with luxurious footing.
