The Material Boy #122
Gucci GG Red White Dégradé Web Tote
It seems Gucci has injected some colour into their range of monogram bags even before spring summer 2009 stocks hit the stores. I was expecting the colour leather trimmings and web ribbon to only surface for spring summer 2009 as they were widely featured on the recent Gucci mens runway shows.
So a pleasant surprise when I saw this bag in Gucci Paragon over the weekend.
The red colour is refreshing, as does the white and red web ribbon running down the center of the tote bag. Features a top zip closure and red rolled handles and trimmings. Very cute indeed.
One thing that kept me from buying this right away is the short handles which means you can only hand carry. It's sometimes a chore! However, the colours is a real saving grace and is a nice break from all the brown bags we see everywhere.
Retail price: Euro $535. Where to buy: www.gucci.com
