A FAN­TAS­TIC BEAST…

And where to find it

Esquire (UK) - - Style -

Two years ago, Gucci creative di­rec­tor Alessan­dro Michele ush­ered in a new, hy­per-max­i­mal­ist era — louche silk shirts, ta­pes­try-like top­coats and em­broi­dery ev­ery­where. These days, ev­ery­one from Idris Elba to Harry Styles marches in the Gucci army, and looks bet­ter for do­ing it. Does ev­ery man need a pais­ley cape?

Uh, no. Could we all stand to bring a lit­tle more wit to our style? Ab­so­lutely.

That’s where this brief­case comes in. Its bones are old-school Gucci: sub­stan­tial, struc­tured, with a trade­mark bam­boo han­dle that dates back to

1947. That be­winged, Ben­gal-striped free­loader? He’s the fun part. The bag lets you chan­nel that Gucci magic with­out go­ing full Fauntleroy — take the em­broi­dery, hold the silk and satin.

Black leather tiger em­broi­dered bam­boo han­dle brief­case,

£3,160, by Gucci
