Gucci Jackie Soft Leather Hobo, $2990; Available at Gucci
With new creative director, Alessandro Michele at the helm and rumors of great financial struggle, Gucci was the must-see show of Milan Fashion Week. Stripped of their signature sex appeal and any retro flashbacks unique to one era, the Gucci woman was hardly recognizable. Michele decided to spin his first collection for the house in a quirky hipster direction, ushering a new era of whimsy for Gucci. The Jackie, one of the fashion mega-brand’s most iconic bags, is a true piece of history. Named after Jackie Kennedy, this it bag is elegant in its simplicity, with a horsebit closure for a single emblematic touch. The Jackie is an effortless and timeless symbol of Italian craftsmanship- a representation of Gucci’s everlasting appeal.
