Gucci Spring 2014 Handbags

If you don’t like fringe, it’s not time to panic quite yet. Generally, Gucci runways display a small, hyper-focused fraction of the bags that are forthcoming from the brand for any particular season’s collection, and this season, the aforementioned focus happened to include quite a bit of fringe. Long fringe. Creative director Frida Giannini has a tendency to add bohemian touches to the brand’s signature sexy, luxurious look, and that seems to be the avenue she’s decided to take with these bags.

The collection itself has numerous sportif notes, but those don’t come through on the bags, which have a much more 70s vibe to match the collection’s exquisite silk caftans. In the context of the Gucci world, the bags make sense, but I suspect fringe this long may be difficult to wear. Will you spring for one of the runway bags, or will you wait for a version without so much fringe (which is almost surely forthcoming)?

    the clutches are nice – but the rest – yuck – way too much for me

  • Tommi

    I agree – way too much fringe. I can’t see a bag like that working with many outfits.

    The red suede is fenomenal. I love the shape of the bag, though I could do without the fringe on the bottom and a shorter tassel. I’d definetly keep an eye out for the fringeless version.

    It is trendy; however I think this is a trend that will continually come back over & over again. Wish I still has my Fringe bag from the last time fringe bags were the style.

    Never been a real fan of the fringe, but this I like.
