Gucci Goes Back to Basics for its Fall 2014 Handbags

During her tenure at the brand, creative director Frida Giannini has taken enormous strides in streamlining and simplifying what it is to be the Gucci woman. Tom Ford’s hard-nosed excess was fun, but Giannini has long offered up a softer experience that is more viscerally luxurious, and she’s taken that even another step further with Gucci’s Fall 2014 handbags. The collection features shapes both familiar and new, all made minimalist in soft leather and muted tones.

Gucci fans will immediately recognized the newly pared-down New Jackie Hobo, which does away with some of the trim details that were holding the design in the last decade and makes it feel more languid and casual. In addition, you’ll find small, structured shoulder bags with generous straps, plus oversized totes in what appears to be very sumptuous leather. To say we’re looking forward to seeing these bags in stores would be an understatement; this collection doesn’t try to hard or reach too far, and it does a lot of thinks exactly right.
