Which textures? How do you make sure that the things youíre buying now Louis Vuitton Luggage will work both immediately and in the coming months?

Get it, ladies Iím about to use a word to describe the handbags from Gucci Spring 2013 that I genuinely have never associated with Gucci or its bags in the past: simple. For the candy-colored clutches and petite shoulder bags that Gucci sent down the runway in Milan on Friday, the brandís iconic horsebit hardware was back and nearly everything else louis vuitton handbags on sale was gone. Shown in two versions, Gucciís pared-down flap bags were a notable departure for a brand know for its large, sometimes aggressive handbags. Gucci creative head Frida Giannini has always enjoyed turning our expectations of the brand on their heads, though, and thatís exactly what she did in a runway show full of monochrome and monotexture ensembles.
The bags followed the lead of the clothes instead of making their Louis Vuitton Handbags own statement, and itíll be interesting to see how this newfound restraint reverberates through the rest of Gucciís accessory line come spring. Check out all the bags after the jump.With New York City having been so recently overtaken by the glitz and glamour of New York Fashion Week, it seemed appropriate to spotlight a clutch that embodies the same kind of allure. My choice for this weekís show-stopping purse (drum roll please) is the Gucci Garcon Gold and Crocodile Clutch. This clutch has everything you have ever dreamed: gold accents, a crocodile pouch and green Swarovski crystal decoration on the tassel and clasp. I mean, Swarovski crystal and crocodile finishing done on the same bag without it being too gaudy?! Iím basically drooling as I type.
