A little while ago, I was bemoaning the size of the LV Speedy 25. As the number indicates, it is about 25cm long and although its a good size, its just not quite big enough for my daily needs. Since then, I was gripped in a fever to get a similar handheld tote but larger. And one fateful day, my footsteps led me to the doors of the Gucci store.
Gucci, like LV and the many designer brands out there, is a very popular brand for the pirates. So, yes, the monogram of the interlocking GG does turn me off somewhat. But I also learnt that Gucci makes beautiful leather bags. They are pricey as per normal, but the quality is very good and if you ask me, they are quite underrated in this regard. I used to see loads of people toting Gucci everywhere quite a few years ago but now, I don’t see them around very much anymore. The young especially, seem to shy away, preferring to go for LV. Well, it might be a good thing because I’ve actually noticed some really nice new designs popping up in Gucci that I’d prefer not to share 😉
Oh and not forgetting the Gucci classic – the Boston Bag.
As I was saying, I walked into the Gucci store to look around and my eye was immediately and irresistably drawn to this on the shelf behind the very friendly and pleasant SA. I have a thing for handheld totes in this design. Its not only very practical – no space wastage and the soft leather means you can fit a lot in there if you have to – its also very classic and will not go out of style.
Do you go for bags in this design? Or do you prefer the hobo style shoulder bags?
