I think it's really interesting that the fashion world has heard very little from Gucci in the past five years or so, but now that it's come back, it's made a distinct return to its roots. The classic equestrian preppy Gucci look is in full swing on this leather messenger bag.
I feel a little back and forth about the weathered treatment on the leather. The base brown is a lovely shade, and the weathering is so exaggerated that it almost looks ombre, which doesn't really make much aesthetic sense with the overall style of the bag. I do, however, really appreciate the beautiful braid trim and the weaving on the shoulder strap.
The shape is only kind of messenger-like. It's really more of a saddle bag. Either way, the soft edges add a lot to the tailored preppiness of the style. The hook and tab closure is beautiful against the leather, and the strap detail adds to the utilitarian look. The combination of a leather hangtag and a tassel both on one side is a little much, but one of them could be easily removed.
Overall, this is a very classy casual bag, and once it's actually weathered and the ombre effect has faded a bit, it could become your go-to bag for the next decade or so.
