ICYMI: There’s a new Gucci bag on the market — the Jackie 1961. Earlier this fall, the Italian fashion house reissued its iconic Jackie handbag, a favorite style named after former first lady Jackie Kennedy. It’s only been a few months since the label reintroduced the modern iteration of the design, but Gucci's new Jackie 1961 bag has quickly become a celebrity favorite.
Much like Kennedy, Gucci’s Jackie bag is an emblem for timeless fashion. A popular style from the ‘60s and ‘70s, the hobo bag became one of the luxury label’s signature designs. Creative director Alessandro Michele reimagined the silhouette this year using a vintage style from his archive as inspiration. Michele’s version takes a more contemporary approach, sleek, smaller in size, and in a handful of playful colors. The saddlebag still has the classic appeal of the original, but feels a bit more versatile in the modern age.
The ease of wear is clear when you take a look at how a handful of the entertainment industry’s leading ladies are putting their own spin on the style. Elle Fanning opted for a sleek airport look, Jodie Turner-Smith went for a cozy layered ensemble, and Cate Blanchett put together a polished '70s-inspired outfit. Read on to see how celebs are making fall's It-bag their own, and to get inspired to try the style out yourself, too.
