Gucci Frame Print Leather Top Bamboo Handle Bag Pay Tribute To Jane Austen

Gucci Frame Print Leather Top Bamboo Handle Bag

This certainly would confuse plain Jane Austen. She didn’t sign up to do anything with Gucci or any other luxury fashion house during the Big 4 fashion week. A small, pocket-sized book come with Gucci’s each new Frame Print Leather Top Bamboo Handle Bag. Named “Juvenilia”, the book is a collection of short stories written by damsel Austen through years 1787-1793, during her teenage years. A period she was free from censorship or social pressure, this is the complete opposite of what Gucci does – creative chaos.

There is plenty room in the bag to carry Juvenilia. Even back in the 1700s, when there was no Kindle readers and Gucci handbags, ladies managed to carry a book or two during long horse carriage and stage coach rides. Not just to pass time but also as a man repeller – to discourage unwanted suitors from trying to chat up.
