View From the Fashion Closet: How to Make a Gucci Bag

Gucci Resort 2014 bags with bamboo handles
I recently went to a presentation of the Gucci 2014 resort collection, where we were given a demonstration on how their classic bamboo handles are made. A skilled Italian artisan—who spoke almost no English—took us through the steps. It takes hours to make a handle, which is individually hand-torched to achieve a color that suits the bag perfectly, then bent into shape and dried. Click through for more images of the process.
