PHOTOS: According To Gucci, 2014 Is The Year Of The Man-Purse
Pet peeve #78: Guys who tell us they’d be purse-wearers if only it didn’t undermine their masculinity/violate social norms/lower their sperm count. Wah wah.
After seeing the bags from Gucci Men’s Spring 2014 ready-to-wear, we’re even less sympathetic to the murse-phobe’s plight — in fact, we’d take these crazy-chic carryalls off their undeserving hands before you could even say “Grow a pair.”
To properly outfit her floral-appreciating, windbreaker-and-jodhpur-wearing outdoorsman, Frida Giannini offered exceptionally roomy totes, padlocked backpacks that buckled across the chest, and outsized convertible-strap bucket bags big enough for a whole case of champagne, not just the two measly bottles M. Vuitton intended.
We’re chomping at the bit to get our mitts on that white leather — it’s just crying out for some patina-developing abuse — and to (temporarily) trade in our teeny-tiny clutches for bags that can actually hold more than an iPhone and a stick of gum.
Borrowing from the boys might get quite a lot of coverage here, but this time, there’s no chance they’re getting anything back.
