GUCCI

Being introduced in 1955 as Constance, the bag was shortly thereafter named after one of her best-known fans: Jackie Kennedy. She brought the bag to fame and made it a classic staple for decades to come. One could even speculate when looking at 90s Tom Ford Gucci and the re-invented classic, that the Jackie has had a part in saving the back then struggling company. After undergoing multiple design facelifts, last but not least by Allesandro Michele, the core shape is still intact. Currently, the bag again can be seen on celebrities as it is easy to style for everyday use with its rounded corners and short handle. If you aren’t one of the few who can raid their mother’s closets for a vintage version, here is your opportunity to snatch one up in one of the millennial’s most sought-after colors.

The crocodile embossed bag in millennial pink combined with the classic shape of the bag combines elegance and opulence flawlessly. Fitting all the essentials, yet dainty enough to make her a mini bag it is hard to pass on. Finding a small version of the bag second-hand is rather rare, especially as the blush pink mini version currently is again for sale on the Gucci website. We think this would make the perfect accessory to wear when watching the new movie “House of Gucci”.

Anna Molinari and her husband founded the brand Bluemarine based on their love for the color blue and dedication to the ocean in Capri back in 1977. 18 years later, in 1995 Bluegirl was added, a more whimsical line that still represents the original Italian DNA. The line grew up with the consumers base, formerly focused on teenagers, to a mature individual that can stand on its own. It stands for a toned-down glamour that does not restrict in any setting.

The champagne-colored dress is decorated with streaks of gold, created in a way that almost appears as if the dress has been used as a canvas by an artist. The balloon sleeves, short hemline and slightly enhanced shoulders create a garment fit for this Christmas and many more occasions to come.

The designers’ creativity knew no bounds. From illustrating fairy tales to designing homeware and creating idiosyncratic couture gowns – everything was treated with equal importance to aesthetic. His ensembles are known for boldly mixing color, patterns, and textures, sometimes all in one piece. Particularly fond of patchwork and stripes, at the core of the design aesthetic has always been drama and extravaganza. In 1994 the brand introduced Christian Lacroix Bazar, a more casual division as a supplement to the opulent pieces of his main line.

For a person who adores color, bold patterns and interesting cuts this showstopping dress is a perfect match. The dress is composed of a heavy brocade that keeps the shape of the garment intact, while boldly mixing different patterns. Recognizably Lacroix is not only the mix of colors put as well the patchwork effect given to the structured dress. Soft pinks meet dark purple, greens and fuchsia. All the colors together create a bold yet very feminine dress.

A designer of Dominican origin learned the fashion business from the grand names as Lanvin and Balenciaga, only to become one of the most influential designers of the 20thcentury himself. In addition to that, he contributed to fashion overall as president of the Council of fashion designers of America. Since 1965 Oscar de la Renta and his namesake brand dominated American fashion, dressing presidents, and socialites alike. Known for his usage of bright colors he was the first Dominican ever to design for a French couture house. With this experience in hand, he manages to expertly mix European couture and American sportswear. His designs are inspired and easy to wear, without lacking elegance and sophistication.

The necklace is reminding us strongly of Anna Wintour, who as well often chose big statement crystal necklaces to bling up her midi dresses. It is a very special piece showcasing stones ascending in size and color intensity. Starting off with clear crystals transforming to a pastel pink climaxing in the biggest stones with a dark purple hue. It can be fastened in different lengths and therefore worn as a choker style for a more current look as well as a necklace that beautifully drapes over the wearer’s collarbones.

PRADA

Twenty years passed since the start of the millennium when Prada prominently showcased ostrich leather on its spring 2000 runway, from coats to costumes. The soft purple tones prominently used are already back in style, barely a year after the collection officially reached vintage status. The collection was filled with clean lines and soft tones of 90s minimalism. Therefore, we consider it a great example of Prada’s mastery in the creation of basics that are worth the investment.

The bag on show has not been spotted in the campaign or on the runway but based on the color as well as the material it can be placed around spring 2000. This vintage Boston bag comes with an attachable strap to transform the top-handle- into a shoulder bag. Additionally, it is a full set: certificates and dustbag are coming with the item.
