The Material Boy #57
Gucci Leather Backpack/Hobo Bag in Python Skin and Silver Calfskin
Last evening while shopping in Paragon (I went to pick up my Prada Open Toe Sneakers which finally came all the way from Italy after many weeks of waiting...thank goodness!), I saw this huge backpack/hobo bag in python skin on display at the Gucci Paragon Boutique. I was never attracted to this bag when I saw it on the runway pics or even on the Gucci website. But seeing it in person brings a whole new perspective to my thinking...I actually like it. Using it as a hobo bag works really well because of the large size. Makes it trendy for a man to tote this around. In addition, there are 2 other shoulder straps that can be detached to change it into a backpack. but this leaves the ends with the buckles hanging down from the bag. (Well, it depends whether if you mind...seriously, I dun:-) There are also exterior zipper pockets and a subtle silver metal Gucci script insignia adorning the bag. Lastly, the black polished python skin is pure luxury! Absolutely stunning and chic in black. This bag is perfect for the suave biker boy inside of you. I just wonder what is the price tag in SGD. To be honest, I will not mind buying it over a sale.:-) Cross my fingers I can still find it during sale.
Comes in silver leather and the cheap looking dialux fabric as well. The latter is yuck!
Tried the bag today(5 Apr 2008)...perfect size, perfect strap length.... perfect black python skin! Yummy! I want the bag!
