If you are looking for a small bag to throw over the shoulder and look stunningly chic and glamorous, you’re in for a treat! The Ophidia Sylvie Stripe Canvas small shoulder bag by Gucci is exactly what you need. It belongs to the Cruise 2018 collection, and it is an absolute modern classic.
When it comes to this bag, the center of attention is the famous GG logo, which dates back to the 1970s. That’s when it first appeared on their product. Over the years, it became a well-established symbol of Gucci’s heritage. Therefore, it’s no surprise the manufacturer of the Ophidia bag wanted to make it stand out.
The design of this Ophidia bag was mainly influenced by the flowing dresses of Indian dancers. They actually took the baiadera fabric from House’s archives and reinterpreted it with the Sylvie Web colors. These colors (white, blue and red) blend exquisitely with one another, and they make a great choice for fun, summer nights. The bag’s baiadera linen canvas, along with the washed-out effect and its signature gold-toned hardware, will make heads turn when you pass by.
What makes this bag even more glamorous is the gold-toned chain-link strap. Furthermore, the strap is adjustable, and it has a 17.5” drop.
When it comes to zippers and pockets, this bag has a front zipper pocket, an interior zipper pocket and a zipper closure on top. You’ll agree that, for a small bag, that’s more than enough room to carry the essentials.
How to take care of the bag
Bear in mind that Gucci starts its product manufacturing process by carefully choosing all the materials and fabrics. Hence, we’d recommend handling them with care for longer product durability. To make things easier for you, we made a list of simple instructions to follow, provided that you want to protect your bag from potential harm.
First off, it’s important to keep the bag from direct light, heat, and rain. If you notice any liquid on the bag, make sure to dry it off immediately. In order to keep the original shape of the bag, fill it with tissue paper and store in the flannel bag that goes with it. Also, refrain from carrying heavy things in it and clean it regularly with a soft and dry cloth.
