The Material Boy #196



Gucci Cruise 2009 Grey Guccissima Leather Tote and Duffel

Yesterday I took my brown Guccissima leather tote out for a sunday shopping spin. This is one handsome and timeless design that matches a lot of looks and is so me. I love that the bag is light-weight and in a very handy size, not too bulky to be cumbersome. It's one of my favourite bags now.

So I made up my mind...if I cannot find my grey (argent) Balenciaga Women's Weekender, then I may get the Gucci Grey Guccissima Leather Medium Tote again. Or if I think getting a duplicate is silly, then perhaps the Grey Guccissima Leather Medium Duffel.

Gorgeous colour. And at a fantastic price. These are bags that can lasts a long time without going out of style. And the new grey colour is gorgeous and perfect for summer and my resort looks:-P

Retail price:
1) Gucci Grey Guccissima Leather Medium Tote: US $795 (Or should be SGD $1290 as per the brown coloured version)

2) Gucci Grey Guccissima Leather Medium Duffel: US $895

hi saw a similar duffel on sale for $600+ at the Paragon store last week. Not sure what the material is called but it's white GG canvas type? You might want to go down to have a look :P

Kevin and myMANybags said...

I think that probably sold out already. I was there on Sunday and did not see any white duffel. But there is a red coloured Guccissima duffel, if any of you is interested.

Thanks for the tip!

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Alfred, the Guccissima range is usually not on sale unless they are odd colours like red.

Sean, yes, we share the same taste in bags! Hehe. We should go shopping together!

I'm not a fan of Gucci but it sure is pretty.

i am liking the grey... sigh no more keepalls!

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Yes, Joseph, you already have many keepalls. Hahaha. But you can never have too many. No harm in one more?:-P

HI Kevin

Can i ask if the handles of the Guccissima tote long enough for you to carry on your shoulders? My arms are quite muscular am afraid it might not fit. Let me know Thanks

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Hi Anonymous, the handles are of a pretty decent length. I have seen bigger sized guys slinging the bag on their shoulders. I am slim, so I have no problems. The best is to try the bag for yourself cos I will not know how muscular you are.:-P

I love the grey tote as well but when i got to the store and saw it in person today, i'm not so sure i like it as much..still a nice colour, different but the edges of the trimmings are not as clean as the brown one because of the colour..it looks like after awhile it going to go all vintagy on you lol

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Hi deaddisco,

you mean the edges of the leather is of a different colour?

Okay, I will have to see it for myself to decide:-P

Thanks for the heads up!

Kevin

deaddisco said...

lol kevin you might not see it or mind it. i dont know , my eyes just zoomed it at the trims maybe because it a light colour or i just crazy lol

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Hi deadisco,

Are you from Singapore? :-P If you are, then it means the bag is in the singapore stores already?:-P

deaddisco said...

Kevin

from Singapore but saw it in the New York Store. Definitely go have a look at the bag in person . It's nice.. but it took me awhile to take the colour in...it's a bluish grey.... I have the dark brown one..i cant make up my mind which one is nicer but definitely like you said, the dark brown more practical and goes with a lot of outfits.

Lol..... Sometimes i look at things at the strangest way so dont thrust me on my word...go have a look and let me know what you think.
