The Material Boy #178

Gucci Tattoo Print Nylon Hobo Bag

I love the new Cruise 2009 collection from Gucci! The use of those interesting graphic tattoo prints is simply cute! It reminds me of the tattoos on buffed butch sailor men (Tom of Finland style?). Yum! Mermaids, anchors, wave motifs and more, gets you on a 'holiday by the sea' mood:-)

The style of this Gucci Tattoo Print Nylon bag is more hobo than tote bag design. It features a single shoulder leather strap, zipped opening and 2 luggage tags, one of which is brightly yellow coloured and Gucci branded. The prints on the white nylon is the main draw for this cute bag.

Retail price: US$735. Where to buy: www.neimanmarcus.com

Knowing Gucci, I think they probaly apply this print all over! So scarf and shirt can happen!

Congrats, anonymous!:-)

Glad you like your purchases. How do you find the nylon quality? Is it thin or thick? or filmsy?

What other items did you get?:-)

Hi Kevin!! Im the anonymous one, didn't remember that i had an account already.
Well, is a mix of very soft nylon bad it seems good quality and the touch is amazing, and also i pre-ordered the anchor belt from cruise collection as well, this is all for the moment.
i'm also the guy who wrote you about the tall skin military boots from Dsquared, the ones for 1500$, crazy boots, i prefer the other one i have, is wearing the guy on runway with the jeans with chain, yellow t-shit and bomber leather jacket, those are amazing boots i must say
