If I had to pick just one piece from the Gucci Cruise 2016 Collection, with a bit of hesitation (just because it’s hard to choose just one) I’d pick the gold metallic crossover sandals and this Gucci marmont shoulder bag. Wait, that was two but oh well.
Initially the Gucci Dionysus bag that I saw on the newly revamped Gucci site has long been on my wishlist because of it’s classic structured shape that’s so timeless, but I’m really digging this Gucci Marmont shoulder bag as well. Perhaps it’s the brass hardware, or the stitching but something about it seems vintage inspired without being out of date. Whether I’m wearing the bag with a feminine lace dress or just t-shirt and jeans, it makes such a great accent without overpowering. Just how I like it.
With Alessandro Michele’s direction, I love the retro vibe of the Gucci Cruise 2016 collection. One of my favorite aspects about Gucci has always been the colors and the unexpected pairing of the colors like this stunning lace dress. The red, the orange on the sleeves and the purple piping… to me they seem so unexpected yet go perfectly together. I loved being in this dress all day. I loved it the moment I saw it on the runway and I love the pleats on the skirt because it makes twirling and walking around so fun. With his direction and the newly relaunched Gucci.com, it’s safe to say, Gucci is killing it.
