Milan Fashion Week Roundup: The Big Three

Milan Fashion Week Roundup

When it comes to Italian handbags, there are three supremely reigning brands. Gucciicon, Fendi, and Pradaicon 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, where the brilliant Alessandro Michele continues to inspire, ignite, and delight, Renaissance royalty met up with street-tough graffiti, candy shop colors were contrasted against unwavering primaries, and iconic styles continued to be revamped with major innovation. Their new bag collection is genuinely eclectic. Just try to choose between the logo-laden and piped pastels, hard-structured briefcase bags featuring upbeat exotic skins with racing stripe and chain accents, luxe metallic or velvet options, or the newly, even more wildly appliquéd Dionysus.

Karl Lagerfeld took Fendi in a flirty (so many ruffles!), playful (so much color!), and very graphic (enough dizzying lines to make your head spin – in a good way, of course!) 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” woman, who sports her corset over her impeccably tailored jacket and wears a variety of updated rifts on the hiking boot. The notion of sporting your metal-accented, itty-bitty baby bag as a pendant dangling from your neck? Don’t be surprised when you see the friskiest of street-style stars sporting theirs like that in a few months, although fastening the little buckled creations to your belt is probably a bit more comfortable. Top handles remained classic in trademark Prada saffiano leather, while elements of sport arrived in the form of slick quilting, proving Miuccia is livelier than ever.

Last week, we fell in love with the Marc Jacobs Mini Trouble Bag, and we fell even deeper after we read the story behind it. Made from luxurious smooth leather, featuring a coin-shaped vintage closure on the front flap, it’s a beautiful bag deserved to be loved.

And because the mini might be too-small (even tough we truly and absolutely adore mini bags), we thought you also might to take a look at the medium size, which is in our opinion the ideal everyday bag for the casual-chic outfits.

The Marc Jacobs Trouble Bag Collection is a new style, its inspired by the sophisticated woman bags of the 1960’s. And what’s more intriguing, is that the Trouble Bags is Marc Jacobs’s version of a Classic Shoulder Bag. It’s playful, charming and luxurious, very notable when you carry it on your shoulder – it got a sleek, angular box shape, refined with a round closure and accented with a 6-diamond-cut silver chain.

Made from calf-leather, the interior comes with four separate compartments including an internal slot pocket. It also features with an extra hand mirror and can be opened with a push-clasp fastening. Measuring 6.5’ x 9.5’ x 2’ inches, priced at $3314 USD or €2350 euro’s via MyTheresa.
