If Gucci Fall 2011 is any indication of what we’ll see from the rest of Milan Fashion Week, then I think my credit card is going to be begging for mercy when fall pre-orders start. The ready-to-wear had an easy, colorful, jet-set hippie feel to it with lavishly draped chiffon and vibrant furs, and the handbags were just as luxurious. Exotics outnumbered regular leathers and some models carried multiple bags, indicating Gucci’s emphasis on accessories for the season to come.

What was perhaps even more interesting than the colors or materials were the shapes that they took. Gucci is the latest brand to embrace the so-called “lady scale” bag, and most of the runway options were sized for essentials only. If you’re a woman who needs to carry her whole life in her handbag, though, fret not; Gucci showed several larger New Jackie shoulder bags as well.

    Gucci is never on my radar as far as handbags go, but I love the sunglasses.
    However, you can sign me up for the two pink bags (my favorite color), the evening clutch in picture 2, and #10.

    I love structured bags, but 90% of these are way too small for me. Maybe I need to carry less every day.

    A very very nice collection. Love the pink and yellow handbags in particular.
    I am not a fan of the over sized handbag anyway (I am too small , I look ridiculous with them) so I think it is great that handbags are back to a normal size again.

    If you are a woman who needs to carry her life in her handbag, but do not worry, found several large Gucci shoulder bag, and the new Jackie Chan.
