Seeking a last-minute holiday gift? These high-style accessories are perfect for the fashion fan who craves iconic design.
Logo mania is showing no signs of slowing among luxury labels this holiday season – quite the opposite, in fact. The Resort 2022 collections that recently arrived in boutiques reflect the latest design approaches to iconic logos, and if there’s one takeaway from some of the world’s most sought-after accessories, it’s that bigger is better. From Gucci’s iconic double G’s to the artful treatment of the Hermès H, legendary houses are embracing the branding beloved by their clients like never before.
If you’re seeking the ideal gift for the fashion fan in your life, the latest logo-centric shoe, bag or accessory from a favorite label is sure to be a huge hit. We gathered six of the newest pieces from fashion houses that are admired for their mix of tradition and modernity. Your holiday shopping can be both effortless and tremendously successful when you consider these icons of style:
Originally created in the 1970s to honor house founder Guccio Gucci, the Italian label’s double-G print is more popular than ever. Recently the brand introduced Jumbo GG, featuring the iconic
initials in an oversized print. This mini bag also highlights another signature of the house: the archive-inspired bamboo handle and clasp.
Gucci’s double-G print can be found across the Gucci Gift campaign, as well, which features vibrant stripes and geometric motifs that recall jockey uniforms (as seen in the Gucci Jackie 1961 bag pictured above).
With Fendi First, his modern take on the Fendi initial and logo, artistic director Kim Jones has created a collection that’s undeniably an instant classic – and one that fans of the brand are adding to their closets like crazy. Among the most spectacular pieces is this velvet boot in a multicolored print, which tops his inventive F-shaped heel in gold-toned metal.
Collectors of this legendary French label aren’t only passionate about the Birkin bags or silk scarves; they love the cuff bracelets as well, mixing and matching the brightly colored enamel bracelets with the leather and metal cuffs highlighting that beloved H. This wide cuff features a playful treatment on the initial that will mix nicely with existing pieces in a fan’s collection.
The interlocking initials today known as the Louis Vuitton Monogram first made their appearance in 1896, when Monsieur Vuitton’s son, Georges, created the print not only to honor his father, but also to put a stop to counterfeiters who were eagerly imitating the house’s most successful trunk designs. Today, that iconic LV is found on everything from shoes and handbags to the latest jewelry designs, including these two-tone earrings in silver and gold.
Creative director Anthony Vaccarello has excelled at modernizing the Saint Laurent brand, while also honoring the codes of the house. This SL baseball cap is a whimsical take on the initials of a legendary designer, juxtaposed against the luxe look of a red bouclé tweed in a check motif.
The Gancini first appeared as a clasp on a Salvatore Ferragamo handbag in 1969, but how did the house arrive at this symbol, alternately thought to be inspired by a door knocker or horseshoe? According to the lore of the house, the Gancini (or “small hook” in Italian) takes its cue from a detail on the iron gate of the 13th-century Palazzo Spini Feroni in Florence, where Salvatore Ferragamo founded his brand in 1927. The Gancini print is prominently featured on the label’s new F Heel Slingback, beautifully blending with nappa leather in metallic silver.
