Dubai is one of the most luxurious destinations on the planet, so it makes sense that Gucci’s new limited edition Marrakech handbag, which is available exclusively in the UAE capital, is incredibly opulent.
Midnight blue and metallic taupe python comes together in the Middle Eastern inspired design. The bag’s soft silhouette is embellished with bohemian tassels, scoubidou piping, and handcrafted plaited handles. The interior is every bit as luxurious as the outside. The main compartment is lined in buttery soft nappa leather and kitted out with pouches for gadgets and small valuables. A Dubai Exclusive metal plaque is a permanent reminder of the handbag’s limited edition status.
These kind of country-specific designs aren’t unusual, but it’s unusual to see one looking so good. All too often similar products tend to trade on their limited edition status, but I don’t see any of that here. If I could swing the flight and the bag on top of my regular Christmas shopping, I would.
As you’d expect, the Marrakech isn’t cheap. It’ll cost fashionistas 17550 United Arab Emirates dirhams, or roughly $4780 US. It’ll be available next month at the Gucci stores in the Mall of the Emirates and The Dubai Mall, as well as Dubai’s Harvey Nichols and Bloomingdale’s boutiques.
