If you think throwback is something that happens only in Instagram, think again. Fashion has a definite love affair with all things revival. And, this Pre-Fall 2014, we’re seeing one of the major fashion throwbacks.
The Gucci Prefall 2014 collection sees one of the House’s most iconic motifs reinterpreted in a modern, powerful, twenty-first century way. Subtle yet striking, the Diamante pattern features geometrics that evoke the facets of a diamond. Dating from the 1930s when the diagonal design first appeared woven on luggage, this season the Diamante pattern is embossed on leather for women’s handbags as well as men’s and women’s luggage. Echoing the design of the full-scale originals, mini bags play with new proportions. These pieces deliver both practicality and feminine attitude, and are perfectly in keeping with the crisp style of the ready-to-wear collection.
The choice of colour makes these accessories open to the interpretation of the owner – in a season where Gucci’s leather goods feature a wide variety of dashing brights, there is also always the option of classic hues for timeless, understated style. In glossy, textured leather, shades vary from the mellow – black, great white, classic marine and grey – to the bright and colourful – bumblebee yellow, deep cobalt, red, and blossom pink. Free of hardware, the Bright Diamante handbags are lightweight and effortless to carry. The minimal silhouette is ideal for the Gucci woman’s on-the-go lifestyle.
The glamorous Gucci Bright Diamante handbag collection features an array of signature shapes, each and every one an object of desire: the bucket-style shoulder bag, the clutch, the top-handle tote, bowling bags, and the Boston bag.
