Last year Gucci's iconic Bamboo bag, which made its debut in 1947, got a makeover courtesy of creative director Frida Giannini. Featuring a draped metal chain, fringe tassels and nickel hardware, the New Bamboo bag became an instant classic. Now Gucci has introduced a made-to-order service at its Madison Avenue store, allowing clients to choose from three bag sizes, each available in 25 shades of matte, shiny or metallic crocodile. The color palette is extensive, with neutral tones like ivory, camel rose and soft sand at one end of the spectrum and bolder hues of Indian blue, emerald and burgundy at the other. For the finishing touch, the owner's initials are embossed on the flap interior and the mirror case. Prices upon request. At 840 Madison Ave.; gucci.com.
