Gucci’s New It Bags For Fall/Winter 2012-13: Introducing Lady Stirrup and Soft Stirrup

Gucci has created a Stirrup bag for just about everyone for Fall/Winter 2012-13. Firstly, I have to say that I loved (and still do!) the Stirrup the moment it landed on the runway during Gucci’s Fall/Winter 2011 show. And now, the Stirrup family is expanding with this Fall’s introduction of the Lady Stirrup and the Soft Stirrup.

First up, the Lady Stirrup.

Large top handle Lady Stirrup in Black Crocodile, RM 114,370
Large Top Handle Lady Stirrup in Black nabuck leather, RM 14,100
Medium Top Handle Lady Stirrup in black Diamante velvet and black leather, RM 9,360 

So, at this point, you might be wondering why the Lady Stirrup doesn’t at all resemble the Stirrup introduced in last year’s FW collection. Well, the distinctive marker, really isn’t in its silhouette, but in the details * points to the stirrup detail on the bag*.

I have to be honest, though that this isn’t the sort of shape and bag that I’d usually carry, because I find it a little mature for me. Nonetheless, it’s definitely something our mothers would dig, yes?

Next, the Soft Stirrup, which is a slouchier version of the Stirrup , and available in 2 sizes (medium and large).

Large Soft Stirrup in deep red python l RM 18,390
Medium Soft Stirrup in Light Brown Suede, RM 6,090
Soft Stirrup in Black Suede Pineapple Leather (think embossed Baroque flowers) RM 7,280
Large Soft Stirrup in Leather, RM 8,170

Although I’m more of a tote bag fan and less of a hobo person, this is much closer to my style compared to the Lady Stirrup above, and I’d totally rock this! 😉 But of course, the Stirrup is still my Favourite!

Pick your poison: will it be the Lady Stirrup, or the buttery Soft Stirrup?
