D&G Maroon Large Polished Leather Bag
I seldom take a fancy on D&G bags. Much as I love the ready to wear clothing, their bags usually tread on the territories of being boring or over-designed. Worse of all, sometimes, the pricing can be ridiculous if you compare the design to other more established luxury bag brands.
Well, this Fall Winter 2009, we seem to have a winner here for D&G. As I was checking out their newly setup online shopping site, I discover this gorgeous D&G Maroon Large Polished Leather Bag (deep red to me;-P). Perhaps it is the slightly shinny leather or that mesmerising deep hue of red, and maybe the slightly distressed effect on the leather with all that brass hardware..they all seem to speak to me in a positive way. I feel this bag could be a wonderful everyday companion. It's simple enough in design with some quirky twist to not be boring, such as the multiple zips (inspired by the women's D&G Lily bag). And yet, it is functional with a hand carry handles and shoulder strap option, plus 3 roomy compartments to sort out your belongings. Best of all, for all that is worth of that leather and hardware, it costs a mere US $995. Oh gosh, such quality of bags never start at this good a price.
I will have to scout out my D&G store here to see if this baby will be stocked. Love it...I am always game for the idea to own a nice red bag!
Retail price: US $995. Where to buy: Dolce & Gabbana
