Gucci’s 80s Derivative Spring Handbags

Gucci started Milan Fashion Week with a bang! Presented in an Ancient theme runway stage at the Gucci headquarters, the brand presents various bag designs that are truly a work of art for both Men and Women’s Collection. Alesandro Michele’s latest collection features a mix of styles, from vintage to classics and modern.

With ruins and Greco-Roman statues, fallen Roman columns, Aztec monuments, and a bandaged mummy peppered throughout Gucci’s Spring/Summer 2018 show venue, the first thought that came to mind was, with all these historical references, could Creative Director Alessandro Michele be going way back in history for the collection?

The season’s standouts were a couple of 80-s inspired pieces. One standout was a “fanny pack” style bag complete with all the design finishes of their ever-popular logo bags of the era; the classic taupe logo fabric, the green and red stripe – for those of us of a certain age, all finishes that speak to our luxury-minded 80s selves. For those true collectors who like a little more edge, their questionably-yet-intentionally misspelled “Guccy” cross body bags tap into a visual vibe of an 80s video game while maintaining a very tongue-in-cheek levity that somehow, seems to work despite itself.

Naturally, there are those who will find these two offerings derivative and they are undoubtedly right. However, sometimes, it’s just a matter of letting enough time pass to make those of us who are old enough to remember the era the first time around nostalgic for what the design house is offering. Wherever your opinion happens to fall on this one, the buzz that the house is generating with these two styles simply cannot be denied.For the Spring 2018 shows, Gucci has literally saturated the runways with such an abundance of handbags, it’s nothing short of an exhaustive effort to wade-through the offerings to the point of being able to pick a shortlist, let alone a favorite. However, that is not to say that there weren’t a few standouts in what was a seriously eclectic collection.

 

Louis Vuitton bags

Instantly recognizable, discreet, and glamorous in the same moment – there’s a reason why Louis Vuitton bags represent the essence of class. Louis Vuitton, for the last 6 years, has been voted the world’s most valuable luxury brand, surpassing Chanel and Hermès, and it’s because their handbags have gained a reputation of quality and beauty since the French company’s founding in 1854.

Simple shapes combined with high design make Louis Vuitton bags not only gorgeous – they also give true meaning to the word “icon,” with luxury radiating from inside and out.

It’s never all that hard to figure out which new bags Louis Vuitton is betting on. The massive French brand is singularly powerful within the luxury industry, and that means it has plenty of famous friends to rely on when it comes for drumming up pre-release interest in a new design. When the Louis Vuitton City Cruiser Bag appeared on the arms of paparazzi magnets like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift almost immediately after the brand’s Fall 2016 show, we knew it was the bag to watch. Now, it’s made its way into boutiques for the first time.

So now, we want to hear from you: are you digging this latest Louis Vuitton debut? I’m more into it than I expected to be, at least because it feels like its own idea instead of piggybacking off another brand’s success. Too many very high-end designers are guilty of that (occasionally Louis Vuitton among them), and I’d always rather see a brand venture something new than stick with what’s already working for everyone else.

Patch pockets and zippered pocket at two-compartment interior. Tonal leather lining.Versace, is an Italian luxury fashion company and trade name founded by Gianni Versace in 1978. The main collection of the brand is Versace, which produces upmarket Italian-made ready-to-wear and leather accessories, while other diffusion lines are Versace Collection (mainly in the US), Versus Versace and Versace Jeans. The Versace logo is the head of Medusa, a Greek mythological figure. The logo came from the floor of ruins in Rome that the Versace siblings played in as children. Gianni Versace chose Medusa as the logo because she made people fal in love with her and they had no way back. He hoped his company would have the same effect on people. The Versace brand is known for its innovative designs having symbolic flashy prints and bright colors. The company announced in 2018 that it would stop using fur in its collections.
