Gucci Small Hysteria Bag

I was not feeling Gucci handbags for quite some time, then came the Gucci Hysteria Bag. The luscious leather is as sumptuous as anything I have felt, in fact so soft that I would give anything to turn it into a pillow (or even better a blanket). And while leather versions have my attention, my undivided attention was long ago lost to the Gucci Crocodile Hysteria Bag that Vlad and I saw in NYC. But since the $37,500 price tag is much more wisely saved going towards a down payment on a house, I am left loving the Gucci Small Hysteria Bag is sultry magenta. The leather is slightly gathered at the top but the overall shape is slouchy. The double handles feature the metal Gucci crest detailing, which does stand out but is alluring in its own right. There is a detachable shoulder strap, but when worn the top of the bag folds over and gives a more casual look. The inside features a zip, cell phone, and PDA pocket, all necessities for 2008. If the colorful option, which will be perfect for fall and winter, is not working for you, there is also black available. Buy through Saks for $1650.

    The croc version was great, but I do like the color of this one. The shape again is a baggy shape,which I am not at all fond of. The price for this Gucci is ok.

    Oh wow, i wish i could afford this. The color is so gorgeous!

    I have the large version in black leather and it is ridiculously soft and luxe. It has a glossy sheen which is a lot nicer than the patent version. Now I want this color too!

      have you seen the Butterfly? Is there an orange one and a yellow one?

  • rhonda

    Has anyone seen the Hysteria Butterfly? I have heard Gucci has an orange butterfly and one that is yellow?

    Can anyone out there tell me where I could find the new Gucci hysteria bag in the red tapestry. I see it everywhere in the cream, black tapestry but want the more vibrant colors. I’ve looked everywhere but was wondering if anyone has any other ideas. Thanks.

    i KNOW WHERE TO GET A COLORFUL ONE IN MY NOT SO NEARBY GUCCI OUTLET. I SAW THIS COLOR AND BRIGHT YELLOW WHICH I ABSOLUTELY LOVE. I BOUGHT THE MEDIUM TOP HANDLE IN YELLOW.

    I know I am so late to the post, but I own the Gucci Hysteria in black Guccissima and it is the most awesome bag I have ever owned, and I own many, many LV, Gucci, Fendi & Prada bags. The leather is SO soft and luxurious. It;s huge and slouch, and at the same time, sleek and sophisticated. I rock it with jeans and suits, and heads turn no matter where I go. I had buyers remorse for two seconds because the bag is again huge, but I carried it once, and received such a large overwhelming response that it made me remember why I purchased it in the first place.
