Welcome to Twinsburg, Gucci’s Spring 2023 collection.

As the show notes began, Alessandro Michele is the child of two mothers; twin sisters Eralda and Giuliana. Growing up around their kinship was an integral part of Michele’s childhood, and it was this weird, wacky, but perfectly normal to him upbringing that inspired the Spring/Summer 2023 show. The show itself was incredible. Sets of twins, 68 to be exact, walked two separate runways, which were divided by a wall of portraits. For the finale, the pairs joined hands, echoing the celebration of intimate togetherness.

“I remember them, smiling, sitting at a café. Together, they were home. They shared a genetic solidarity but, above all, they shared a secret intimacy which was inaccessible to others”

The Bags of Gucci Twinsburg

Within the Gucci Twinsburg fashion show, there are various themes throughout, and nature is one of them. Referenced in animal prints and florals, vibrant prints are found on boots and other accessories. As for the bags, there were many, and as we’ve come to expect from Michele, they were wild, and they were wacky. While some were commercial and wearable, others, like ones showcasing Gizmo, a character from the film ‘Gremlins,’ left us scratching our heads.

The ever-present nods to the past continue this season, with Michele deepening his exploration of the House’s archives. A shoulder bag shown on the runway echoes a shape that was first presented in 1981. It can be traced back to Gucci’s equestrian-inspired pieces. It is crafted from supple leather, decorated with either vintage-inspired mini monograms or elegant embroideries.

Obviously you don’t know any part of Guccis history do you?
Gucci has introduced a saddle bag before “1980”
John Galliano took some inspiration from the original Gucci’s saddle bag. Cheers

I was thinking the exact same thing. All look very derivative of Chanel and Dior.

I like the bags. The logo is more discrete.

It’s not a gremlin, they were the ugly violent ones. But Gizmo is the best part of show for me too.

The saddle bag has been a Gucci design way before it was at Dior. It’s actually a reissue of their own bag.

Loving the come back of the saddle bags. A nod to the past, yet modern and classic. Interesting that Gucci’s original saddle bags pre-date Dior.

It seems as though another golden age of Gucci has come to a disappointing close

I like a basic tote and I am glad to see the flat tote with web handles.

It has Chanel, Dior and Hermes vibes. It’s a little far reaching.
