Bagaholicboy Muses #215 – The Big 3 Of Milan

September 28, 2010

Last season I liked 5 different collections out of many that were showcased in Milan. This season, however, not so much. Besides the bags from the Spring-Summer 2011 Womens Fendi collection that were hands-down winners in my book, here are the other 3 from Milan that piqued my interest and caught my eye. Tomas Maier did show many monochromatic pieces for his S/S11 collection which included loose-fitting dresses and slouchy bags, but the ones that I like include the exotic clutches in classic shapes, as well as the reinterpreted iconic Knot, looking more stunning than usual.

It was all sex at Gucci as usual, as Frida Giannini pulled out all the stops and made her Spring-Summer 2010 Womens Gucci collection her most glamourous yet. Tinged with a Moroccan sensibility, satchels, shoulder bags and totes in familiar shapes came down the runway in exotic skins trimmed with braided leather detailing. Particularly stunning were the shimmering metallic clutches that look like better executed variations of Louis Vuitton’s African Queen clutches from S/S09.

Last but not least, Prada. Oh Miuccia, whatever will we do with you? Giant front clasps resembling parrot beaks were on almost every single bag that came down the runway.  Clutches to totes, coupled with the cha-cha-cha embroidered dresses and swirly details, gave the entire collection a very Carmen Miranda-esque vibe. Not the most interesting of the 3 collections, but definitely worth a second look.

So that’s it then, my top 3 picks from Milan, along with Fendi, of course. Which of the 4 collections do you like the most, or did nothing here pique your interest? Let me know.
