The Gucci Jackie Bag is Tailor Made For Modern Men
Going by the current state of fashion — the rise of fluid identity, boy-meets-girl-meets-girl-meets-boy accessorising and the comeback of timeless statement pieces — the Gucci Jackie Bag re-engineered by Alessandro Michele hits the sweet spot in the venn diagram that encompasses all three.

The Gucci Jackie Bag isn’t just driven by a trend that has us hankering for classic vintage-inspired bags. It stokes our desire to consider everything we purchase and while Alessandro Michele has frequently designed statement pieces that eschew seasonality while doing it in a timeless way, this is perhaps his most-wanted bag yet.

The charm of the Gucci Jackie Bag lies right down to its downplayed look of luxury. Cross seasonal and gender-neutral (even though it was inspired by the 1960s accessory itself), the bag which once enjoyed life as an icon slung lovingly on the crook of Jackie Kennedy’s arm has now been embraced by a new audience — men and women of all lifestyles.

A particular step in Alessandro Michele’s own efforts to transcend gender notion of fashion and accessories, the Gucci Jackie Bag isn’t just a prime example of low-key luxury — clean lines, rich leather and the iconic signature gold piston closure — it’s the Italian House’s new move into more democratic fashion.

And yes, everybody is welcome.
