Z Zegna. Inspired by vintage suitcases, this tote is a cross between a hand held suitcase with the functionality of a modern briefcase.
Z Zegna: some interesting hardware going on but more or less a classic vintage gym bag shape in high impact white. I would say a lot of brands are going for the more conservative and less costly option of presenting classic, non-risky shapes with the investment going to luxury materials and high impact colourways.
Salvatore Ferragamo: A very clean looking shopper by Salvatore Ferragamo, minimalist low key hardware gives a humble lux look. The short grab handles mean the bag is hand held for a feminine look. This shopper is more or less a unisex style.
John Richmond: A move on from the document cases presented last season. Pushing the envelope on the feminine styles, this document case features an ornate embossed body leather constrated with a plainer leather. The egg shell or slightly off-white is a slightly warmer variation to the stark iceberg whites of Z Zegna and Gucci.
John Richmond: This slimline document / briefcase is highly feminine in its design. Just look at the thinness of the handles and the delicate branding execution. The extra hardware in the lock flap also brings in a vintage feel.
Iceberg: A more modern interpretation of the document case. More slouchy and less clean, this bag features additional straps and handles whilst still referencing classic doctors bag or document files in construction.
Gucci: this bag is basically a vintage style bowler bag. The contrast between black and white give it a slightly 90s feel. I'm not sure whether i really like this one too much. Not much new except the colour combination.
Gucci: I reckon this bag has a slight g-star feel to it. The panel construction is basically the main thing going on. It very much looks like the cross between a sports bag and a fashion style, which, from looking at the overall Gucci show, is maybe the look that they were going for. It has a slighy biker look to it, and looks like it would look much better in black.
Gucci: Did the designer from G-star going get a new job at Gucci? This bag looks good, but is maybe a bit predictable.
Canali: With quite an italian look, Canali have also gone for the black and white contrasting colourways. The clean style fo bag works and i like the mini corner trims going on. Not sure about the handles.
Canali: The shopper version of the above bag. I like the wide base interpretation to the classic shopper, a kind of cross between a tote bag and a shopper. I'm open to other people's comments, please let me know what YOU think about these bags.
