New From Gucci: Print Leather Top Handle Bags

Categories:Other Brands

At every turn, Gucci’s got a surprise for you.

It wasn’t so long ago that Gucci came out with a reinvented Bamboo handle bags, and not too long ago that they came out with these wonderfully insane totes that I’m still dreaming about. And when you thought things are quiet, you’ll see another one pop up. And now as we slowly ease back into the regular routine, Gucci shows something around the corner and up their sleeves, just to keep it exciting.

I am definitely in love with the shape of the bag, the double zipper puller, and the sensible detachable sling. It seems Tiger continues to be a theme for 2017. And if that doesn’t work for you, it also comes in a different color (red) with a snake print.

I was a bit miffed seeing that the Boston classics have silently kicked the bucket. Though there are Boston-shaped ones in the wonderful Gucci monogram and usually adorned with appliqués, it didn’t make me feel excited about it (didn’t even want to write about it).

This bag is perfectly sized, perfectly fits an everyday person’s everyday stuff. What disappoints me the most are the color choices Gucci makes sometimes. That blue is too blue, and the red variation is too red for my taste.

While the prints are fantastic unique selling points for Gucci, it would be nice to have a quiet bag that doesn’t necessarily have all the bells and whistles. Just one out of the many variations wouldn’t hurt.

But all in all, seeing something like this gives me hope that things are going to be okay for 2017.

Man Bag Monday: Givenchy Basketball Leather Pouch

Categories:Other Brands

In case you were afraid that the men’s market was going to miss out on the highly literal novelty accessories that have become so popular among female luxury consumers, I (with help from Givenchy) am here to alleviate your concerns. If you’re a dude who wants to carry a bag that also looks like another thing, the Givenchy Basketball Pouch is what you’ve been waiting for.

Givenchy’s current (and extremely lucrative) stock-in-trade involves luxurious riffs on streetwear standards like graphic sweatershirts and high-top sneakers, and this pouch is another nod toward that extremely profitable mingling of the high and low. Brands have been raking in cash on high-end jerseys and flat-brim hats, after all, so why not take the sport references a step further?

This clutch will no doubt sell out; pieces like this one from Givenchy always do. Whether it will mostly go to male or female customers is another story, but Givenchy fans tend not to be hung up on which gender a sought-after piece was meant to be worn or carried by.

GUCCI SOHO LEATHER BACKPACK

Categories:Other Brands

Gucci-Soho-Leather-Backpack

The Gucci Soho Collection is well known for its Gucci Soho Leather Disco Bag. As you can see, you can recognize a Soho by its GG printed logo placed on the center. This is the backpack version of the Soho bag.

At first look, one can already feel the elegance of this backpack despite its simplicity. The resistant and textured black leather is refined and polished, while the golden chain straps add a touch of panache making it more charming in our eyes.

This lovely Gucci Soho Leather Backpack is ideal for those lazy walks in the park. For travelers, you’ll find it convenient to take anywhere you go especially when you hop on and off the trains and buses abroad.

One thing you need to pay attention to is the golden chain strap on the back that functions are a shoulder wear. Golden chain on backpack seems to be the new trend, but on the other hand, that’s quite obvious. This is not an ordinary backpack, it’s a designer backpack and everything needs to be a level higher and more luxurious.

You will love this bag because its simple, either in single colors or bi-colors. And we all know backpacks are perfect for travelling as well, because it’s just so easy to wear.

The interior features a front zip pocket, open pocket and smartphone pocket. Measuring 22.5 x 31 x 9.5 (W x H x D) cm and is priced $1690 USD or €1390 euro at Gucci e-store.

Gucci Signature Leather Collection

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: GUCCI

This just in. Gucci has launched a new leather which they are calling Signature Leather, which looks exactly like, erm, the GG pattern that we all already know. Confused? Me too. But I read (and reread) the press release like a million times so here’s what I think they mean.

Produced from top quality calf skin sourced from France, consider this GG 2.0, with an enhanced finish that’s even better than the one they had before. Meant specially for the top-of-the-line leather bags, the new GG (now called Signature Leather) guarantees a shiny and smooth finish that’s also rich and refined. In other words, it’s supposedly better than the one they had before and you’ll be seeing lots more of this leather on the Italian house’s bags in the seasons to come, as well as the current Spring-Summer 2016 collection that will have both classic colours and seasonal hues like Rose Candy Baby that you see above.

Now for the disclaimer. I haven’t yet seen (or touched) the new Signature Leather bags in person, which also means there will be more updates to come as soon as I have given them my once over next week. Stay tuned!

Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Baby Embellished Leather Tote

Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Baby Embellished Leather Lace Purse
SAINT LAURENT PARIS HANDBAGS & PURSES0

Lace is making a comeback. Lately, I have been hearing a lot about lace and how it has been experiencing a renaissance of sorts. The lost art of lace-making has been given new life over the last 5 years or so, with more and more companies discovering just how gorgeous lace can be. When it comes to lace though, I have mostly been seeing it on clothing. It is also starting to become more popular in the bridal scene. But not so much when it comes to handbags.

Sure the occasional formal clutch with a lace overlay pops up here and there, but lace has never been a really popular material for handbags. This doesn’t mean that lace-lovers cannot enjoy a lace like piece. I came across the Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Baby Embellished Leather Tote the other day and thought it was a great example of this. This iconic piece was given a makeover, complete with off-white leather and grommet stud embellishments. But it isn’t the embellishments alone. It is the lace-like pattern they create that gives this piece that lacy look and feel. The overall look is very light and airy and would be perfect for this coming spring season.
