If we were to describe the new Gucci shoes and handbags spring/summer 2014 collection, the best definition would probably be something like a “standard succession of similar shapes, introducing the impact of colors on the overall perception of those identical silhouettes”. So, yes, the shapes do repeat themselves here, introduced in the most amazing and chic-inspired color shades that one can imagine. While everything has been done to preserve the intrigue of the pieces, a useful range of options is presented for not only the style and shape preferences, but for color tastes as well.
So, starting the scrutiny of these spectacular pieces, we can obverse the interesting shift from navy blue to red and electric violet, the first two options featured in suede, while the last one having some snakeskin resemblance. Also, it’s here that another overwhelming design is found, being fringe elements and tassels. These shapes can be observed among the following looks, too. Such variants do not divert from the original idea, and present nice options of velvet and Bordeaux, this time also put on the background of animal prints.
Further come the shoe variations, presented as cone heel, open toe, ankle strap pairs, first introduced as green, brown, and blue, and later extended to velvet, golden, and bronze types. The other versions of ankle boots with some stripy patterns and changing color combos from red and black to orange and black, and finally monochrome black, are no less eye catching. The suede is a key fabric here too.
It is known that the repetition of shapes might bring in the danger of becoming boring and losing the secrecy of the succession, which is the main motivation of observers. However, Gucci is so proficient at playing with shapes and colors, that these kind of risks have been absolutely avoided in this wanna-have Gucci shoes and handbags spring/summer 2014 collection.
