Bags are probably one of the greatest obsessions in my life. I am constantly looking for an excuse to purchase a new bag. This season, Gucci has given me enough reasons to want to add a new bag to my lust list.

Gucci’s newly launched Dionysus shoulder bag has attracted me with its new silhouette and I’m seriously considering it as my next big purchase.

Here are 3 reasons why:

1. Gianna Jun was seen with the bag 

I never knew who she was until I watched My Love From The Star a couple of years back. Her amazing wardrobe for the show had me hyperventilating almost every episode. From her full Celine runway ensemble to exclusive Delvaux bags, I vowed to keep a close watch on her sartorial choices from that moment onwards.

2. It is a classic piece with a refreshing twist

The Gucci monogram is the brand’s signature motif. However, due to its overwhelming popularity, it has been a little overexposed. The edgy chain straps coupled with the whimsical floral motifs on the Dionysus bag puts a refreshing spin on the classic look.

3. It will very likely be the next ‘IT’ bag

Alessandro Michele was recently introduced as the new creative director of Gucci and his Autumn Winter 2015 collection received a lot of attention from fashion insiders and celebrities. Celebrities and fashion stars like Dakota Johnson, and Salma Hayek have already been seen out and about with the bag, so you just know it’s going to be the “IT” bag of 2015-2016.
