One of designer Alessandro Michele’s best tricks is simultaneously letting consumers feel like they know exactly what to expect from his new Gucci collections, but also that they have no idea what to expect. He has become so effective at those seemingly contradictory pursuits by building a vast aesthetic world at the brand, which is also one that can go in any new direction, at any time. 80s video games? MLB logos? The bizarre and macabre? All in a day’s work, and all on the runway at Gucci Fall 2018 yesterday in Milan.
Arguably the most notable accessories in the show were the faux severed heads, made in the image of the models who carried them. The whole show had a bit of a morbid medical feel to it, but when it came to the bags, things were a little more conventional. The lineup included a number of pretty flap bags on chain straps, as well as a new, basketball-shaped bag and some nylon backpacks and fanny packs that pulled through the 80s references from the Spring 2018 show. Check out all the runway bags below.
Gucci Resort 2018 Collection was recently held at the Palatine gallery of the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy, a place brimming with rich historical Renaissance influences. The collection specifically focused on an ancient Classical theme which reminds us of the glorious days of the Renaissance period. And what better way to accompany their haute couture than with a pair of bag accessories?There are several attention grabbing bags from Gucci Resort 2018 Runway Bag Collection, which deserves to be talked about and one of which is this new bag with an iconic design.
This rectangular shaped shoulder bag features the label’s well-famed original GG ,canvas diamond pattern, which is known as a symbol of luxury and has been a style staple in the Gucci line since the mid 1960’s. The GG canvas diamond pattern on the other hand is perfectly complemented by the iconic green and red web stripe placed in the middle, a design found in the straps of Gucci’s Original GG canvas tote. The bag is later finished off with a smooth leather all around the edges while the interlocking GG logo is placed in the upper middle portion for instant brand recognition. It also features a gold-tone chained shoulder for easy shoulder and across the body carrying.
