With the holidays banging noisily on the door and the threat of the second wave looming large, most parties this season are likely to be indoors, whether we like it or not.
Does that mean, however, that we’re going to have to ditch our dainty evening bags and pretty gowns? Not at all, in fact, given that the entire year has been much of a waste, I’d say we need a truly stunning evening bag this Christmas to complement our transformed selves (like I’ve become fat). So here I present to you the most appropriate evening bag to dazzle your jealous frenemies this Christmas, the Gucci Ophidia Brown Beige Snake Evening Bag!
Gucci has been one of the very first designer houses to introduce exotics and novel materials as a part of its permanent collection, with its bamboo line remaining extremely popular to this day. Evening bags, however, has always been Gucci’s forte and I am seriously loving this new Ophidia. Crafted from gorgeous beige and brown snakeskin, this stunner measures 7.25 inches and has two compartments big enough to hold your IPhone Max, cards and cash, all secured by strong magnetic tabs. The interior features luxe grained leather to provide a smooth finish to this beauty.
Held by a relatively lightweight but nevertheless very chic chain gold shoulder strap, you can easily carry this little lady on the shoulder or as a clutch. Given its smaller size though, you can probably carry this inside your larger work tote during the day and take it out for the evening too!
Personally, I am a big fan of snakeskin, especially the natural iteration you see here, because it’s just so versatile that can be paired with black and brown and everything in between. Python and watersnake are forms of exotic that are also relatively affordable in comparison to crocodile or ostrich (though by no means inexpensive). I seriously wish the designer houses made more bags for men in python.
So this Christmas, if you are looking for an evening bag to snag, you can totally grab this elegant piece from Gucci in Wheat Brown color at SSENSE for $3600 USD.
