Designer Gucci Hearts New York Handbag Collection
Come February, Gucci will be opening their doors to the world’s largest, brand new Flagship Store over at 725 Fifth Avenue. For the new boutique, the brands creative director Frida Giannini has designed a selection of exclusive products named “Gucci Hearts NY,” that are to be sold exclusively at the new location.

The first collection, “Gucci Hearts NY,” is an ode to the city, where Gucci first opened its doors in 1953. Giannini has taken Gucci’s iconic webbing and its GG pattern canvas and reinterpreted them in white, shiny GG canvas complemented by bold red and royal blue stripes.

Among the product offerings in this category are the Joy handbag, offered in three different sizes, as well as a silk scarf, priced from $320 to $770. A complementary collection of pieces has also been created in the form of a soft briefcase, toiletries bag, hard-sided luggage, a trolley suitcase, and a duffle bag in two sizes that ranges in price from $895 to $6,900….. keep reading
