With this handbag collection as well as the clothing and shoes, I am once again a fan of the iconic label Gucci. If Frida Giannini can promise to never, ever do the awful hippie, disco, or flowery designs from previous collections and more of this clean glam style, Gucci could recapture itвЂ™s once stellar reputation.
When Tom Ford left and Giannini stepped in there were many seasonвЂ™s of horrible designs, and fans of the label, like myself, thought they were becoming a dinosaur in the luxury accessory industry. However this collection is genius. The show began with all white and it slowly progressed into grey and finally black. The overlying theme of the presentation was sex appeal and bondage, very apparent in the clothing designs and hints in the shoe and handbag collection.
The clutch bags were neat and clean, and provided the only color in the show. The smaller shoulder bags feature a bamboo handle and small detail, something I love in spring/summer bags. They also have a metal chain shoulder strap, as well as the standard leather shoulder strap.
The large totes are in white guccisima embossed leather and feature harness detail on the front of the bag and have double whip leather straps and are the bags that really capture the theme of the collection the most.
