When I first saw the Gucci G Coin Medium Hobo, I couldn’t help but think that the whole thing seemed kind of sedate for the Gucci aesthetic. I know that the brand has plenty of simple, clean-lined bags at a variety of price points, but whenever I see one of them, it just seems like they’re missing the point of being Gucci, for cryin’ out loud.

I’m one of the horde of Tom Ford fangirl holdouts, although I enjoy what Frida Giannini is doing with the brand more and more as the seasons go on. In fact, when I disregard the brand, I like what this bag has going on quite a bit.

The look this bag pushes is very tame, I’ll admit, but it’s also mature and not too showy. The namesake coin is the only branding that I can see from where I’m sitting, and the choice of shiny hardware instead of matte gives it a small pop of Gucci glam. As always, I also can’t say no to a good red bag. Good red is, after all, so hard to find. Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $1590.

    The first word out of my mouth was WOW!!!! I absolutely love this bag. Great job by Gucci.

    This is pretty. And what you wrote is correct. A good red bag is hard to find. I eventually gave up and moved on to other colors. I like a blue-red back as opposed to orange-red, and this one definitely has the blue undertones.

    I really love this bag – it’s gorgeous!

    It’s plain and dull in my opinion. It’s just so unlike Gucci in my opinion.

    if only the coin they do it in a matte material, probably something contrast as to see the GG logo… still keeping it discreet and understated .. cos in the long run after wear-and-tear im sure the buckle will be scratched, the platting of the GG doesnt look ‘thick’ for me… scare that the GG will ‘fade off’

    Overall, the color is beautiful, shape is practical, hobo is the best !! and nice bottom studs
    and squarish hobo always has a nicer look than the half moon shape hobo… if u all know what im talking bout

    thanks !

    it’s a beautiful leather bag – but it seems like a bag my great-grandmother would carry – and not in a good way (fb)

    i love this bag. i should say the appearance is clean, the hardware logo is match to the style of overall bag. It can be use anywhere and anytime. And the price is not bad. I love it!
