This Blue Gucci Dionysus GG Blooms Bag is Making Me Feel the Opposite of Blue

Gucci

Right off the bat you know I love Gucci. I loved the bags before Alessandro took over including theBamboo, Jackie Soft, and Lady Web and I’ve been on the edge of my seat with the new direction especially fond of the Dionysus. I wasn’t sure until I laid my hands on a Dionysus just how amazing it really was. In pictures the bag is pretty and different but when you actually get to try it out, you may find yourself just as in love as I am.

Many more Gucci bags have come onto the scene and there are plenty that I love, but I haven’t purchased a Dionysus yet and I can’t seem to stop checking them out when I spot one. This version, the Gucci Dionysus GG Blooms Bag in blue, stopped me in my tracks and had me doing many double takes. While I haven’t seen this exact version in person, I am really intrigued. While many of these bags do feature the GG supreme canvas print, this bag stands out because the GG’s are in a deep blue. Typically you’ll find them in classic Gucci brown which coincides with the tan canvas, but the blue is something different.

I ended up loving the Blooms Print Dionysus when we first photographed it, it really stood out in person. The cool thing is there’s blue suede trim peeking out, hand-painted edges, and the blooms print on the front and back of the bag. Antiqued silver hardware doesn’t distract and the chain strap can easily be doubled or worn longer, whichever you choose. On the inside you’ll find suede lining and a center zip compartment, which allows for easy internal separation. Overall dimensions are 8″H x 12″W x 4″D and simply put this bag is just lovely. I’ve come back to the Dionysus so many times that I think I’m trying to tell myself something: pick one already and buy it. Buy this version via Neiman Marcus for $2,400.

Gucci’s Cruise 2017 Show at Westminster Abbey

Fashion

Alessandro Michele opted to show Gucci’s cruise 2017 collection in London in Westminster Abbey. Interestingly enough, this show was the first ever to be held in the Gothic church, with the stage itself being held basically within arm’s reach of the main church, which just so happens to be where greats like Aphra Behn, Geoffrey Chaucer, and Lewis Carroll are buried. The large church, to put into perspective, was the location for Queen Elizabeth II’s (and other monarchs’) crowning, the funeral of Princess Diana, and the wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton; now Michele is having Gucci join those ranks – well, sort of.

The setting of the Gucci resort 2017 show was actually in the church’s cloisters, which is a breath away from the main church, and featured animal-embroidered needlepoint cushions (think cats, snakes, and tigers) over the church pews, which made for a comfier experience for the rather large resort wear showing. Celebrities like Bel Powley and Elle Fanning were in attendance, with the mood being set by Schola Cantorum’s soundtrack playing “Scarborough Fair.” From there, the expansive collection was all set to hit the runway, featuring both womenswear and menswear.

Vogue caught up with Michele and asked about his choice of setting a cruise show in London, of all placed, to which he had a very enthusiastic response. Gesturing to the vaulted roof, he exclaimed, “To dive in this gothic sea of inspiration! The punk, the Victorian, the eccentric – with this inspiration, I can work all my life!”

He showed his intent to work with the inspiration by sending down a grand total of 94 looks down the runway, each with a plethora of embellishments and fine details relating to an inspiration source of youth culture in the Britain; some looks were more literal than others.

There was no real rhyme or reason to the collection; prints were different and diverse, and traditional cohesion went right out the door, with the only binding element being Michele’s clear design aesthetic, and the fact that all of the clothes were off the wall in some way, bringing in cohesion from the chaos. Starting the show off on a high, quirky note was a women’s cat ensemble. A striped sweater with a feline printed on it was paired with a yellow tartan skirt with another embellished cat right on the front. Paired with a more-than-generous amount of accessories, the “crazy cat lady” vibe has never been quite so chic and fun.

Inspiration sources seemed to span across many different eras, with traditional tartan, ’60s skirts, ’70s dresses, silk dresses that were abundant between the ’70s and ’90s – and that’s only to name a few. Within each style era present were many different styles for different people. It seems that Michele couldn’t stick with one idea, so he settled on all of them.

Regardless of the wonderfully chaotic presentation, all of the clothes were immaculate in the classic Gucci Italian style. Even amid the wild British inspirations present, Michele was able to stand out with his own touches, like animal embroideries, bombers characterized by their glitter, fabulous embroidered handbags, and all the way down to loafers studded with pearls.

The Gucci cruise 2017 show became a celebration of great moments in the fashion history: across the eras and for Michele himself. Even when the clothes were totally dated, like a ruffled pink Victorian period dress, he brought in elements to keep the whole ensemble relevant; in this case, it was a pair of cool cat shades, pinched black cuffs to the dress, and oversized rings. So even though many of his inspiration sources with clear reiterations aren’t exactly relevant in fashion today, he managed to pull them up as such for this presentation.

It is difficult to condense this show down to a brief synopsis, but for the most part, the clothes speak for themselves. Just by scrolling through the large number of menswear and womenswear options put on display you are told a story of the past and present of British fashion, and how it can translate around the world.
