The Gucci Dionysus line, needs no special introduction, as it was an instant hit, the moment it launched. Structured and simple, it creates a balance between the simple, yet emblematic print and the luxurious closure that has a story to tell. These bags pay homage to the Greek god, Dionysus, and come with a textured tiger head closure, that is inspired by the myth in which Dionysus is said to have crossed the river Tigris on a tiger.
The Gucci Dionysus is an envelope-shaped purse with a shoulder strap made of studded web stripes. The majority of the bags are constructed from GG Supreme canvas plus leather. These bags are averagely made of 60% polyurethane, 20% cotton, as well as 20% polyester in combination. The famous Gucci Dionysus Shoulder Bag is one example of the Gucci Dionysus line. The movable chain strap can be used to carry both the top handle bag and the shoulder bag.
The Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme is the other model from the Gucci Dionysus line. The small structured bag closes with a textured tiger head spur. The top handle bag and shoulder bag can both be carried via the sliding chain strap. The Sliding Chain Strap can be carried as a top handle with a 9 inches drop or as a shoulder strap with a 15.7 inches drop. These smaller models have matching leather trim and are made of velvet in various colors. The bags have a front horseshoe shaped closure with crystal-encrusted textured silver spurs.
