There are a lot of things to admire about Gucci, but the thing that strikes me most is the brand’s commitment to interesting hardware. Horse bits, stirrups, bamboo – the Gucci has made a legacy of adorning its bags with interesting signature metal work. For Gucci Fall 2013, the go-to piece seems to be a big, bold, rectangular buckle that’s being referred to as the Gucci Lady Buckle ($3,190 USD) and is often paired with striking jaguar print. (Which simply looks like leopard to me, but sure, we’ll go with Gucci’s story on which big cat it is.) If that look’s a bit too bold for you, you can also get the elements independently on a black leather version of the Gucci Lady Buckle Tote or a jaguar-print bamboo bag. As always, other brand staples are plentiful in the collection – lush python, logo hardware and Guccissima prints. [See More]

The face of fashion is often thought to be the models themselves, perhaps even the people who wear a given brand. Yet perhaps James Franco saw beyond this notion, evidenced by a new film, entitled The Director. Franco assumed the role of producer while helping to create a behind-the-scenes look at Gucci‘s leading woman, creative director Frida Giannini. Where some play rock star as creative directors, living outwardly and wearing their talents on the proverbial sleeve, Giannini prefers her work do the talking. This interesting insight into the iconic brand was premiered at the TriBeCa Film Festival on April 21st. Enjoy.
