WHAT FITS: Pre-Loved Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme

Designer Handbag Blogger Sorcha tells us why she loves a pre-loved Gucci Dionysus Supreme medium and what she can fit inside it.

Today I continue my What Fits series with an office favourite and a celebrity must-have. The Gucci Dionysus was introduced for Autumn/Winter 2015, the debut collection for white-hot creative director Alessandro Michele. At the time it was the talk of the town and it was soon snapped hanging from Beyoncé’s shoulder.

In 2015 Gucci made limited edition designs such as London, New York and Paris, and today it comes in 23 variations of material, size and pattern, all somewhat light-hearted and many quite eccentric. There’s also the exclusive option of personalising the stitches, which seems to be a craze on the celeb scene.

Today’s model is from the current season but it’s already pre-loved. It’s medium sized and made from coated canvas, which for me is a wonderful alternative to your typical leather as it’s lightweight and scratch resistant—perfect for anyone like me who uses his or her bags to death! At heart the Dionysus is an immaculate classic handbag, not too dissimilar in function to the Chanel Classic Flap. But the intricately embroidered bee, snake and flower motifs give it an energy and personality that is fun and refreshing.

I guess this bag is intended for everyday wear. The sliding chain strap means it can be worn as either a shoulder or a top handle bag. The full dimensions are: height 21.5 cm, width, 29.5 cm and depth 6.5 cm. personally I would reserve it for important meetings or on special occasions, because I wouldn’t want to get the embroidered part of it dirty or scuffed.

Anyway, let’s see what I can fit in it!


Starting with what I was most surprised about, the iPad. I sometimes prefer to use this over my iPhone for bits of work on the go, or catching up on TV on my commute. Being slim, I was able to slot it into one of the two compartments easily.

Benefit Makeup Case

It holds all my on the go essentials, and I like to always look my best! Well, at least attempt to. Anyway, it has a zip-up compartment that fits all my make-up, which is so ideal as I don’t have to worry about anything staining the interior suede. Honestly this is so great as with many other bags I have to cut down what I take, which for a lady on the go, is annoying!

Aspinal of London Cardholder

I always carry my cards. I rarely carry change (that can be found in my pockets or compartments in my car). This is a really handy cardholder that I keep with me most of the time. It’s a cute size so it will usually fit in any bag of mine!


This is loose because I ran out of room in my main case. Plus the case is mainly full of makeup brushes and “face” makeup as opposed to “eye” makeup … I should probably put that back!

As always! I have my phone handy for calls from clients, family and friends… (And to keep up with what’s happening on Vogue…)

Chanel Glasses Case

I won’t lie, I have a pair of Zara sunglasses in here… This particular glasses case box is my mum’s and she has a pair of sunglasses that she uses everyday with a separate pouch, so I have bagged myself a free Chanel box case!

Car Keys with Fendi Bug

Again, car keys to make travelling a lot easier to and from meeting clients. I love this Fendi Bug keychain. It has the softest fox fur but I think from the constant use I subject it to it won’t be soft for much longer.

Overall, I’d say this bag is such a perfect everyday size, but with the embroidery I would say it’s a touch delicate and should be used with care!
