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)?
