Gucci and the Bag Game

There’s a million options to choose from when it comes to bags. And guess who is upping the ante? Gucci.

A wave of 70s inspired outfits and accessories are walking the runways of New York and Milan. And in the last several collections, Gucci’s got game. And winning it. We’ve seen these suitcases at the A/W 2016 show in Python, and can’t exactly remember if it sprung up at the S/S 2016 runway.

And the prints we love on the GG Supreme coated canvas (especially in the men’s department) are perhaps in its second iteration. The Italian fashion house’s first attempt was refreshing, and now they’ve grown into and it’s just a lovely collection.

Dubbed “Tian,” Gucci explains it as a contemporary floral motif heralded by Chinese landscapes of the 18th Century, composed of elements of flowers, insects, hummingbirds. The colors are shaded to represent somewhat of a three dimensional effect. It’s like a walking modern art.

If not enough for clothes, the bags get the same treatment, in many forms. But before we down in all the glory, let’s focus on the suitcase.

How beautiful can beautiful get?

Brown leather details, rolled top handles,  hang tags and lock/keys, and a tongue that seals in a buckle, with a leather strap adorned with Gucci’s classic green/red web. Like any other suitcase, the zipper runs around the sides.

It takes a lot to be blown away with a suitcase. They’ve all fall to somewhat old and unfashionably purposely functional luggage pieces. So to come across fashion accessories in luggage form has caught me so off guard, that it’s dumbfounding to be in love with the lost art of traveling in style.
