Quality + Construction 3.5 Stars

This bag is impeccably crafted and the materials used are premium, but my issue comes to the finish of leather on this bag. Hard box leather is both a blessing and a curse – it’s sturdy and beautiful, but also shows scratches easily. I am known to baby my bags, and this lovely bag is no exception, but even with how gently I treat it, some scratches have shown. Over time, the wear will even out and will leave the bag looking like it’s been equally loved all over, but in the beginning stages it stands out. It might be because of my type-A personality, but having a bag show any disturbance is a personal pet peeve.

Otherwise, the quality of this bag is stunning, with no detail left unaccounted for and every material chosen with care. The construction is also superb; in fact, this bag is so beautifully constructed that it’s reinvigorated my love for Gucci. Craftsmanship is key, of course, and this bag goes back to the brand’s basics and showcases the beauty that goes into making a fine leather bag.

    Beautiful bag, Megs! I love this feature but i’m still waiting on a What’s In My Purse for YOU :-)

    think it is beautiful and different but i think for that kind of money they would make the bag more durable.

    I don’t want to discount your lovely bag, but I am very interested in the bracelet on your left wrist. Who makes it?

      That is Hermes on the left wrist – I have two Hermes bracelets on -Hermes Kelly Double Tours!

    When are we going to see that Crocodile PS1? You teased it in the NYFW post, but it’s been MONTHS since we last saw it! What gives?!

      Good call, Dominic. I’ll make sure that the croc PS1 gets covered next! It’s an interesting story that comes with the bag…

    Absolutely stunning! That color is unreal. But I’m with you on the price, why so high?

    I love the color of the bag, but don’t like that the leather shows scratches. :(

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      Me either :(

    I love that you are giving Gucci some respect. Gucci never lets me down, every season I have something Gucci that I need to add to my wardrobe, and that is something that I just cannot say for many other luxury brands. This bag is no exception, lovely.

    gorgeous color!

    I love this bag as well, but the blue velvet version is TDF and the price is about $1800 lower.

    Hello could you say where that pyramid bracelet from?
    Thanks

  • Elaine Weiss Whitman

    What a stunning design. I can see why it’s your current favorite. But… it shows scratches??? If I had paid that much $$$ for a bag, and it was showing such obvious scratches in just a few short months, I’d be hysterical. I assume there’s no way to buff them out?

  • Jen

    I too am glad that gucci is shown some love! My go to bag right now is an all black leather gucci treasure box boston joy bag. It looks different than the typical speedy and is deceptively large without being bulky like your lovely lady! Some style elements are classic gucci! Beautiful color too..it’s a shame tho that the scratches show. Hefty price!!!!
