When it comes to Italian handbags, there are three supremely reigning brands. Gucci, Fendi, and Prada run the show – and they regularly blast the other Milan Fashion Week shows out of the competition. For the Spring ’16 season, the designers for all three well-seasoned houses seemed to have a single mission on the mind: To showcase their lust for life.
At Gucci, in which the brilliant Alessandro Michele is constantly on the inspire, ignite, and delight, Renaissance royalty met track of street-tough graffiti, candy shop colors were compared against unwavering primaries, and legendary styles ongoing to become revamped with major innovation. Their new bag collection is genuinely eclectic. Just try to choose from the emblem-laden and piped pastels, hard-structured brief-case bags featuring upbeat exotic skins with racing stripe and chain accents, luxe metallic or velvet options, or even the recently, much more extremely appliquéd Dionysus.
Karl Lagerfeld took Fendi in a flirty, playful, and very graphic direction, by way of both the ready-to-wear and the bags. Stripy fur collides with decorated panels of optically intriguing leather accents with bold straps to match. As for the palette? The best way to describe it is crazy colorful. Fluffy tufts, kaleidoscopic python, and the Peekaboo with a ruffle-trimmed makeover: The whole effect is enough to inspire a dopamine rush.
Finally, Miuccia Prada’s wild “vagabond” lady, who sports her corset over her impeccably tailored jacket and wears a number of up-to-date rifts around the hiking boot. The idea of sporting your metal-highlighted, itty-bitty diaper bag like a pendant dangling out of your neck? Never be surprised if you notice the friskiest of street-style stars sporting their own like this inside a couple of several weeks, although fastening the small buckled creations for your belt is most likely a little more comfortable. Top handles continued to be classic in trademark Prada saffiano leather, while aspects of sport showed up by means of clever quilting, showing Miuccia is livelier than ever before.
