Gucci presented its latest collection via a digital web broadcast, taking viewers on a journey of what usually goes on behind closed doors, which included the goings-on of their campaign shoot (from the makeup to the setup) at the Italian luxury brand. Viewers were whisked into the studio located in Rome at Palazzo Sacchetti, and all modelled by Alessandro Michele’s own design team, which was quite ingenious because using real people also means it would be more relatable to the man (or woman) on the street. But if you missed out on all the action and the presentation of all 76 unisex looks earlier, here’s a quick recap of the lust-worthy bags that will be arriving at Gucci boutiques later this year.
Eagle-eyed fans would have spotted the miniaturised barrel bag in Look 2, modelled after Gucci’s signature carry-on duffle bags and finished with the signature web trim running down the handles of the bag. Then, there are the lovely #GucciJackie bags which make a celebrated return, coming in an exotic sling bag, a pink leather hobo and another in a combination of leather and suede in Look 13, Look 40 and Look 72 respectively. But if you prefer a larger version of the Arli, that will be coming in a tri-coloured version paired with a chain strap in Look 33, a handy size that can be worn comfortably over the shoulder or slung across the body.
Now, Gucci has not forgotten about the boys (or ladies) who love a great carryall. You can keep your eye out for 2 exciting designs that feature Donald Duck and little triplets (Huey, Dewey and Louie) in Look 32, as well as the lovable Doraemon printed on Gucci’s vintage monogram in Look 48. In other words, there’s truly something for everyone in this collection that’s all about something old, something new, something borrowed and of course, something blue.
