Alessandro Michele Presents the Gucci Bamboo 1947 Through a Contemporary Lens

In partnership with nine international creators.

Gucci‘s signature Bamboo Bag has been given a new look by Alessandro Michele. Presenting the new silhouette, the house’s creative director has tapped nine international creators to share their own vision of the Gucci Bamboo 1947.

The significance of the year 1947 was when Guccio Gucci and the brand’s Florentine artisans decided to craft the handle of a purse out of bamboo. As part of the Gucci Beloved lines, the Bamboo 1947 — available in an array of colorways — features a top handle and comes with interchangeable leather and Web straps.

As for the digital project, the creatives have produced their own artistic representation of the silhouette through a series of photographs, illustrations, paintings and videos. Take a closer look at the images above by photographers Maddalena Arcelloni, Lou Escobar, Katja Mayer, Theo Liu Xiangyu, Cho Gi-seok and Suzanne Saroff, and artists Nico Ito, Samson Bakare and Everett Glenn.

The Gucci Bamboo 1947 is now available to shop online and at Gucci stores.
