Traditional Hand-Painted Briefcases

Gucci's New Briefcase Boasts Animal Love Through Art

— March 30, 2018 — Luxury
This traditional hand-painted briefcase by fashion house Gucci boasts beautiful illustrations of eagles, horses and wild cats. Made out of brown textured leather, the luxe bag is bound to bring a sleek and elegant component, as well as a delicate artistic flair, to any fashion ensemble.

The signature Gucci horseshoe-shaped buckle, which is inspired by the tigers that pulled Dionysus' chariot in Greek mythology, offers a stylish detail element to the luxurious traditional hand-painted briefcase. The detailing in the hardware is truly intricate and mesmerizing, but it definitely does not take away from the classic illustrations.

The luxe product "offers a glimpse into the imagination of animal-loving Creative Director Mr. Alessandro Michele," and it is endearing and convenient that the briefcase takes on a rather unisex silhouette, making it accessible to everyone.

1. Hand-painted Fashion Accessories - There is an opportunity for other fashion brands to follow Gucci's lead and incorporate traditional hand-painted illustrations into their products.
