Gucci GG Washed Cotton Tote With Tan Leather Trim and Khaki/White/Orange Web
If you miss out on the Gucci pink handle totes recently (they were sold out in mere days), this is one good alternative with more mileage for your 'investment' and yet equally appealing.
Presenting the Gucci GG Washed Cotton Tote With Tan Leather Trim and Khaki/White/Orange Web. The colour ways are more subdued than the neon versions and is crafted in cotton GG fabric instead of canvas. I imagine this will be much softer to the touch and less stiff and cumbersome. The orange/khaki/white web colours is sophisticated while not boring. The tan leather cleverly compliments the overall colour scheme, making this bag very versatile. Roomy, nonchalant and glamourous (light gold hardware), any Gucci or no Gucci fans alike will find this a great companion to their summer wardrobe. There is also a zipped top version with shoulder strap as seen on the runway but not here in the Singapore's Gucci stores.
Currently on display at Gucci Paragon's display window...hurry if you want to buy it, cos' I believe these are as limited as their pink handle counterparts. Retails approx. at SGD $1850.
Retail price: US $1350. Where to buy: www.neimanmarcus.com
