The iconic house has released their latest collection, Gucci Summer Stories, and it’s “designed to capture the spirit of summer, exploration, and escape.”

Gucci’s classic handbag lines such as the Jackie 1961 and Horsebit 1955 are part of the collection, and are presented in woven raffia with leather details that are perfect for elegant day-to-night looks. Their jumbo GG leather duffle and tote bags of different sizes and colors from the Gucci Valigeria selection are playful and the type of bags you can’t wait to bring to the beach. Their handbags combine their motifs with its heritage, creativity, and innovation. There is so much more to the collection than just bags however.

The Gucci Summer Stories collection is meant to have you covered, no matter if it’s for a long-weekend getaway, or a month-long holiday. Gucci’s goal is to help you travel in comfort and style. Some of the other items you can expect in the collection meant to capture the joy of summer warmth include a women’s ready-to-wear selection, with a variety of day shirts, including silk jacquard styles with bold graphic stripes and playful florals as well as matching shorts and pants. Their swimsuits and bikinis come with sparkling details, with their pink one-piece that is defined by a crossed detail at the back being one of the many that stand out.

When it comes to their summer shoes, Gucci has what you are looking for. They have flat espadrille slides in raffia, mid-heel styles like white leather sandals and raffia slides with the Interlocking G motif that carry over seamlessly into evening looks.

Gucci’s Summer Stories collection isn’t just about the women however, as they’ve released several choices for men as well. From a selection of seasonal looks in cotton and linen, with bowling shirts and blousons embellished with patches, embroidered details, and reinterpretations of the GG motif, to leather slides and loafers with Horsebit details and espadrilles in natural raffia, men are covered from head to toe. Again, expect a lot of bright colours, stripes, flowers and iconic prints.
