Giddy-Up for Gucci: The Soft Stirrup Bag


Put on in a shearling coat, lace up your boots and complete your equestrian-inspired Fall look with the plush Soft Stirrup bag by Gucci. A sensuous, supple interpretation of the Italian house's famous stirrup-shaped bag, the Soft Stirrup's most distinctive feature is of course the spur-shaped hardware, which harkens back to Gucci's rich riding heritage.

Taking a leaf from a structured, ladylike frame style from 1975, the Soft Stirrup has been updated for the modern woman with a larger, softer sihouette, making the bag simultaneously functional, refined and casual at the same time.

Note, too, the smaller spurs that accent the handles, which come in vintage-feel finishes like gold, brass and antique silver. Warm, season-appropriate hues saturate the fine leather bodies of the bags: choose from versatile black, grey, deep carmine and delicious cocoa and marron glacée.

Available in a rich array of skins that run the gamut from washed soft calfskin and nubuck to exotics like python and crocodile, the bags are lined in suede, leather or the House's iconic GG-monogrammed linen. The python, in particular, is a standout display of Gucci's artisanal know-how, with the aged, shiny quality of the skin being achieved by the application of special oils and a host of manual ironing and handcrafted techniques.
