Gucci Tian GG Supreme Suitcase
One of the more recognizable signature elements from Gucci during Alessandro Michele’s tenure is the Tian print, which overlays a contemporary print inspired by 18th-century Chinese tapestries and screens atop the brand’s signature GG Supreme canvas. Seen here on a four-wheel suitcase, which looks more like a work of art than a travel accessory, the bag features two nylon-lined interior compartments, padded front zipped pocket and retractable telescoping and leather top handles. In a carry-on size, the Tian GG Supreme Suitcase fits the bill for function, while also ticking the style box with its bright floral pattern and overarching Italian design complemented by refined maple-brown leather trim.
