Last week, while most of us were frantically finishing out holiday shopping and checking our grocery lists twice, Gucci dropped its Pre-Fall 2019 collection on us via a very extensive lookbook. For many of us big time Gucci fans, this was a very welcome holiday gift! Alessandro Michele blessed us with bag after bag after bag, and though Chanel might say otherwise, Gucci, it seems, is trying to tell us that exotic skins—in beautiful colors no less—are indeed in for Pre-Fall 2019.
Many of these bags make use of Gucci’s newest hardware, which marries a Horsebit and an interlocking G. There were tiny bucket bags, double bag situations, and even a color blocked version of the ever-popular Marmont flap bag. Aside from a large patchwork tote that includes some sort of metallic fringed detailing, which is also present on a mini-bag, most of these bags are fairly commercial, which to many is an interesting surprise. From basketball shaped bags, to a mickey mouse head, Michele is known for his electic and sometimes downright weird designs. See all of the bags below!
