Gucci is reinforcing its game once again in the luxury bag industry when it released its Lilith Bag Collection during the brand’s Resort 2017 Collection. Seductive, infernal, and visually appealing, the Lilith bags are incomparable to none.
But hey, what’s in a bag name? If ever you wonder why the name of a woman is used as a reference to a Gucci bag, well ladies, a name always has a story to tell. Based from ancient mythology, Lilith was the first wife of Adam who later became a demon. The serpent in the Lilith bags perfectly represents her.
The Gucci Lilith leather shoulder bag is sultry thanks to its printed snakeskin detail along the flap and the snake head push lock closure. Look closely, the snake head is a definite spot-on with the turquoise crystal stone eyes looking right back at you. This bag has a detachable chain shoulder strap so you can opt to wear it either as a shoulder, cross-body or a handy handbag. It also has an interior open pocket and measures 9” x 5.5” x 2” (W x H x D) inches and is priced $2390 USD, €1980 euro, £1610 GBP.
Another bag worth having in this collection is the Gucci Lilith leather top handle bag. This one is a visual stunner with the grosgrain bow detail and a bamboo top handle. The textured snake head with piercing crystal stones set in the eyes is something you couldn’t dare miss! This beauty has two shoulder straps: a detachable and adjustable grosgrain shoulder strap and the other one is a detachable and adjustable leather shoulder strap. It has an interior zip and smartphone pockets. The small size size is measured 10.5″ x 9.5″ x 1.5″ (W x H x D) and is priced $3500 USD, €2980 euro, £2420 GBP, $4300 AUD, ¥434160 JPY.
The medium size is measured 13″ x 9″ x 5″ (W x H x D) and is priced at $4200 USD, €3500 euro, £2840 GBP via Gucci boutiques.
