Considering the relatively short amount of time Alessandro Michele has been at Gucci's creative helm, it's incredible how quickly he has built a new creative world for the the brand. Like Michele's collections before it, Gucci Pre-Fall 2016 is rooted in Gucci's long leather goods heritage, but it's a lot more fun, youthful and energetic than "heritage" usually implies in fashion.
In addition to Gucci's presentation late last week, the brand also released an extensive lookbook of the collection, which gives us the best look at its upcoming handbags. The bags continue on the foundation Michele has built, with traditional shapes and structures spun out in seemingly endless variation with appliqués, embroidery, beading and colorblocking.
Check out the bags from the lookbook below; you can expect to see them arriving in stores this spring. You can also shop Gucci's current collection via Gucci.com.
