With its release in fall 2015, the Gucci Dionysus marked the beginning of a new era for the Italian luxury house Gucci. The eclectic and extravagant sense of aesthetics of creative director Alessandro Michele, who was appointed in January 2015, is perfectly reflected in the Gucci Dionysus and makes it one of the most desired pieces in the fashion world.
WHAT MAKES THE GUCCI DIONYSUS SO SPECIAL?
The Gucci Dionysus is made from the highest quality canvas or leather and combines iconic Gucci elements such as the signature GG Supreme and modern elements like contrasting suede inserts, adjustable chain straps and the double-headed tiger buckle. With seasonal floral prints, elaborate beadwork, filigree embroidery and details such as bamboo handles, the Gucci Dionysus is reinterpreted in each collection. Source of inspiration for the design of the Gucci Dionysus was the story of Greek god Dionysus, the god of wine, joy, grapes, fertility, madness and ecstasy. According to the myth, Dionysus crossed a river, later Tigris, on the back of a tiger sent to him by Zeus.
HOW CAN THE GUCCI DIONYSUS BE STYLED?
Just as diverse as the design of the Gucci Dionysus are the ways to combine it. Being a hybrid of classic Gucci elements and new modern accents, the Gucci Dionysus is the perfect companion for elegant, casual as well as extravagant looks.
Whether influencer Chiara Ferragni, supermodel Alessandra Ambrosia or actress Dakota Johnson, they all love the Gucci Dionysus despite their different fashion tastes! While Chiara Ferragni is known for her love for daring looks and does not shy away from any trend, the Brazilian top model Alessandra Ambrosia opts for more elegant looks with playful details. Airy mini dresses and lace ensembles are staple items in her wardrobe. Actress Dakota Johnson prefers casual and laid-back looks and combines her Gucci Dionysus with distressed jeans, suede ankle boots or Converse sneakers, a basic tee and a light coat or denim jacket.
HOW MUCH IS A NEW GUCCI DIONYSUS AND WHAT IS A GOOD PRICE FOR A SECOND-HAND GUCCI DIONYSUS?
The price for a new Gucci Dionysus varies depending on its size, style and the materials used (canvas, leather or suede). The price range lies between 1300€ and 4000€. With a bit of luck and patience though, the popular piece can be found second-hand starting from 800€ to 1000€.
