Gucci Spring-Summer 2016

Categories:Other Brands

‘Every cloud has a silver lining,’ goes an ancient saying. In the case of the newly released Spring-Summer 2016 editions of Gucci’s Dionysus bags that are now in stores locally, their cloud also comes with a phoenix, a bee and what looks like a giant chrysanthemum amongst the flora. An exercise in more on more on the GG supreme canvas no less, the 30 cm by 21 cm shoulder sling is decidedly beautiful, and one that clearly shows the new artistic leanings of the storied Italian luxury house under the rein of Creative Director Alessandro Michele.
If, however, you prefer something with winged creatures of a more delicate kind, there’s also this variation, complete with large bright blooms surrounding a single butterfly. 
This lovely piece features the classic Gucci signature print.That would be the delicate geranium print on the flap. Geraniums are certainly an under appreciated flower. I love them though and I think it’s pretty neat to see them being used here. The geraniums are printed over the signature print fabric, giving the design almost a painted-on appearance. Overall, I think the geraniums fit in quite nicely here, complimenting the structured shape of the bag and contrasting with the signature print. I also love the chain strap and classic Gucci buckle. This bag is definitely meant for the fall season, despite the cheerful flower print. It would look lovely paired with fall colors such as brown and burgundy.

Gucci. Does anyone remember this designer? That may sound like a silly question, but Gucci has SO not been on my radar lately. Sure, they produce some gorgeous, iconic pieces. But after awhile, everything from Gucci just felt sort of “blah” to me. But when I saw the handbag you see pictured here, my interest in this designer was renewed. Introducing the Gucci Testa Tigre Medium Geranium GG Blooms Shoulder Bag!
