2015 was a huge year for Gucci. Alessandro Michele took over as creative director, and in his short time at the helm of the brand, he’s infused Gucci with his deep understanding of the house’s history as well as his own unique sensibility.
Everyone has different patterns when it comes to shopping for and carrying bags; some people are brand-loyal, while others tend toward trendy pieces or only let themselves splurge on classics. Actress Naomi Watts, on the other hand, fits into a very specific type of bag pattern: she buys and wears what is essentially the same bag over and over again.
Alessandro Michele’s previous Gucci show may have been relatively light on handbags, but based on the brand’s Spring 2016 runway in Milan earlier this week, that’s not the new creative director’s preference all the time. For the upcoming season, the Gucci Dionysus, among others, are getting a remixed look with lots of extra details.
Gucci continues to lure in shoppers with beautiful bags every season and one of the most coveted staples is the Soho Disco Bag. The bag is so loved that there is a Soho Disco Bag club on the PurseForum and if you follow us on Instagram, you’ve seen my red Disco make an appearance time and time again.
I already showed you a few of my favorite perfect Gucci gifts for the season, and today I’m sharing more–a few items from Gucci just wasn’t enough. Gucci’s designs are as elegant and stylish as ever, and even at a luxury price point, the bags feel like a strong value because of the brand’s fine materials and craftsmanship.
