Alessandra Gucci’s limited-edition bags


NEWS
Filed by Lucire staff/November 5, 2008/8.56


This was an interesting range to come through on our newsdesk this week. These bags have been designed by Alessandra Gucci, daughter of Maurizio, granddaughter of Rodolfo. The First is a limited edition of 99 pieces globally: there will only be 11 of each style. The idea is to minimize the odds of going to a party to find someone else with the same bag. We did notice that the catalogue that we received dates back to May 2007, however—perhaps the roll-out is region by region?
   Our favourites are shown below, and more information is at Gucci’s website.

  • Some informations are incorrect.
    Collection “The First” designed by Alessandra Gucci is of AG Limited Editions not of the House of Gucci.
    Moreover the catalogue and the picture of the samples have been published in 2007.
    Collection “The First” is an it collection, unique, not seasonal and that will never be reproduced. Sales started in March 2008 through exclusive networks of
    personal shoppers in Italy, France and England. From Autumn it is available is some of the most beautiful, favorit and exclusive boutiques in the world. As exclusive appointments for AG Limited Editions.

  • Hello: yes, we realize that the bags are not from the house of Gucci. When we stated ‘Gucci’s website’, we used that in the context of the designer’s surname. (If it were the more famous house, we would have written, ‘the Gucci website’ or ‘at Gucci’ and linked to gucci.com.) So I do not think we were incorrect in our usage.
       Thank you for the clarification on the sales’ date, which is why we raised the question (notice we never made this a statement). We noted that other websites mentioned the line months ago, which made us wonder if there was a regional roll-out.
