During these crazy Milan days, I couldn’t miss the event to discover the new Coccinelle ’s collection, because, as you now, I grew completely addicted to this brand. Let’s start with the decoration of the show room: there was a long, set table, where, instead of drinks, all the bags of the autumn winter 2017/2018 collection were displayed and sparkled among shiny reflections of plexiglass, pop fluorescent elements and sequins.
Among the guests I also met the notorious Ezia Baronio, with whom it is always a pleasure to chat.
The collection is inspired by the New Aristocracy: utility combined with luxurious elements. The new Coccinelle’s bags are particularly charmin for their modern style an for their usual and impeccable quality, which is the fundamental aspect of the long tradition of leather production the brand was born from.
Looking at all the bags at once felt a bit like traveling across the Eastern and Western world, thanks to dinamic volumes and materials, between sporty and Bon ton, between neon and meditation, between ancient kimonos and manga dolls (the Japanese influence was pretty clear).
These bags were actual jewels: everything was playful, graphic and taken care of. The models were ranging from the new eel pattern, to the monochromatic metallic effect and to the natural calf leather bag with “bubble” pattern.
The star of the event was the feminine and famous mini bag in python leather, but also the belt with the turned down “C”, which was reimagined according to a design of purity.
Moreover, it’s impossible to forget the famous B14 by Coccinelle, that this time explores new trends: python and suede, colorful metallic effects, laminated details. For example the model completely covered in glitters, which was maybe the absolute best, projects a rainbow of creativity.
Once again, Ciccinelle’s bags prove to be perfect for a metropolitan princess, and they can be worn anywhere, with polka dots and flowers, jeans or elegant gowns, in order to get both during the day and at night your happy-rich touch.
