Remember how Pope Frankie hung out in the US last week and talked about stuff like how refugees deserve our help and the environment is a real thing that exists and the death penalty is mean and we should be nice to each other, and everybody was like, Awww, he’s so cute! but then as soon as he skipped town, we found out he’d supposedly had a secret party with Kim Davis, where they both snorted coke off the asses of hookers and laughed and laughed about how awesome it is to deny LGBT people their basic human rights, and suddenly stuff from Italy wasn’t so awesome anymore? Yeah. That sucked.
But Italy is staging a comeback for Spring/Summer 2016, and that comeback is arriving in your handbag. And it’s gonna be mostly non-homophobic! Although Dolce & Gabbana figure significantly in there. Anyway!
Pretty much every inch of everything at Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 was bedazzled to within an inch of its life. The handbags mostly followed suit, with a few notable exceptions. This means you’re gonna have make sure a LOT is going on with your clutches & satchels to keep your purse game on point next spring, when Kim Davis and her mane of narcissistic righteousness are molting and the pontiff is working on his tan to impress the ladies, whose reproductive health choices he wants to control from thousands of miles away.
So, to keep you out of purse-gatory (that’s right, I WENT THERE), let’s check out ten heavenly handbag trends (shut up, I’m not taking that one back, either) from the Milan runways. Some of these may also qualify as hallucinations the designers were having when they were sketching, so that’s a fun game you can play in your mind while we go through these, if you want.
