Luxury brands have their highs and lows. They also have their distinct items that pick up for a season. Look at how the Chanel pump became the shoe spotted in the front row last year, while Dior took this year’s honor. Spot how the Louis Vuitton Twist bag traveled its way from Alicia Vikander to Laureen Uy.
For Gucci, the label’s revival under Alessandro Michele transfromed it from a token brand to a hot topic. You know it’s serious when The Cut named its fashion roundup “The Best, Worst, and Gucci-est Looks at the 2017 Grammys”
