Fashion label Guess may be turning 40 in a few years, but it wants to prove that it is still hip and relevant with its latest handbags and accessories collection.
Banking on this generation’s love of anything vintage, Guess encapsulates its youthful image—its 80s image—in graffiti backpacks, handbags, and cross-body bags for women. Cool doodles, sketches of rainbows, lightning bolts, and stars give these graphic bags a bold statement.
Sophistication and class, the two traits that, according to Guess officials, every Guess Girl should have, are highlighted in the lineup of structured handbags and satchels in bright red and hot pink, with trendy add-on details like industrial logo shoulder straps, furry pom-pom key chains, pearls, and other charms that infuse a hint of cool, street style.
Spring/summer’s quintessential floral prints and nautical stripes are also present in some Guess cross-body bags and clutches. Other chic pieces come with embroidery, patches, and tassels.
The iconic bags with gingham print, made in collaboration with Spring/Summer 2018 Guess Girl Jennifer Lopez, are also part of the collection. The gingham print with embroidered floral patches is present in handbags, tote bags, cross-body bags, and vintage mini box bags.
This season’s collection of jewelry for women is a mixture of naughty and nice with leather chokers in blush pink, edgy leather braided bracelets, dainty pendant necklaces, and delicate stud earrings.
Statement shapes are a highlight in the collection through heart pendants, star charms, and a colored butterfly set of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Watches this season have a more feminine feel with rose gold tones and crystal embellished cases. Other timepieces included are those with bracelet-like straps and those that come in pretty pastel hues.
Men’s handbag collection, meanwhile, embodies masculinity and exudes a vintage feel as well. The bags in red and black colors set a bold background for Guess’ iconic logos, from the huge GUESS print to the famous inverted triangle logo.
Included in the men’s collection are compact sling bags suitable for travels or a day for errands; the black duffel bag, designed with leather handles and edges; and statement backpacks in bright red and cool camouflage print.
Accessories for men consist of a silver timepiece paired with nautical elements of navy and red, an all-black metal watch that can easily match any outfit, and a timepiece in a gold case with rubber straps perfect for the outdoors.
This latest collection for men and women is available at Guess stores nationwide.
