Today is day two of Gucci's three-day Handbag Artisan Corner at its King of Prussia Mall location. Artisans from the luxury fashion house have traveled from Florence to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the assembly process behind Gucci's handcrafted New Bamboo, New Jackie, Soft Stirrup, and Stirrup handbags.
If you happen to have an extra $850 to $28,000 on hand, you can scoop one of the freshly-minted bags for yourself; but even if you leave empty-handed, a peek at the artisans' custom work tables, tools, and materials is probably still worth a stop into the store.
