Gucci's spring/summer 2019 Zumi bag collection: Fruit-printed leather bags that are more chic than edible
Have you ever bitten into a ripe strawberry and savoured that inimitable burst of juicy sweetness? Well, Gucci's SS19 Zumi bag collection, printed with a Pop Art-esque pattern of the pint-sized fruit, engenders a fairly similar response. Pulpy prints aside, the Zumi range — the latest addition to Alessandro Michele's growing fleet of hit bags, named for actress Zumi Rosow — charmingly combines the house's interlocking G and horsebit motifs in a mixed-metal fabrication inspired by similar archival styles.
For those more fond of consuming fruit than carrying it, the Zumi collection also offers a range of shapes and finishes in timeless black, emerald and ivory. A top handle version, available in two sizes, is fastened with double lift-lock closures that complement the GG-horsebit detail, and comes in pebbled or smooth leather and lizard skin. Shoulder bags, meanwhile, feature detachable and adjustable straps that transform the Zumi into a clutch for evening. How convenient!
