Gucci Spring 2009 Collection: Utilitarian Luxury

'Utilitarian' and 'luxury' are not words likely to go hand-n-hand, but they're the best words I can think of to characterize Gucci's Spring 2009 Collection. Gucci delivers a collection that will appeal to both urbanites and 'downtown' chic ladies. The clothes have a youthful, functional feel yet still manage to exude luxury and uptown style. Practical designs dressed up in sumptuous fabrics never looked so good.

The accessories tie in well with the 'utilitarian' theme. Bags, mostly messenger-style bags and totes-cum-backpacks, are sure to be big hits with younger Gucci bag lovers. Supple leathers and exotics done in bold as well as neutral colors serve to create a collection that furthers the Gucci bag evolution without sacrificing the need to be current and relevant. What better example of utilitarian luxury can there be than a snakeskin tote that transforms into a casual backpack in the blink of an eye? Giving a designer bag functional elements is a smart design choice and is sure to keep Gucci from slipping into the red in this tough global economy.
