Your Grandma's Favourite Accessory Just Got Cool Again
Lately, it seems as though there’s no escaping the omnipresent influence of Gucci—and why would you want to? Since Alessandro Michele’s drastic revamping of the brand over the past year, the house has turned fashion on its head, making us all crave a more opulent, colourful, and decorated wardrobe.
This influence can be seen most clearly in the brand’s recent accessories, which become more highly coveted with each season. Gucci shoes are constantly selling out, and they’re a fixture on the street style scene (not to mention fashion editorials). Meanwhile, the company’s logo-emblazoned bags have resurrected a trend we never thought we’d see again but can’t help but love.
And lately, a new Gucci-endorsed accessory has come to our attention: the brooch, most notably of the floral variety, as shown in Michele’s S/S 16 collection and upcoming Pre-Fall and F/W 16 collections. There’s no clearer sign that the trend is here to stay.
