Gucci Striped Boston Bag, $1095 via Net-a-Porter

I’ve made no secret of my largely negative feelings toward monogramed bags in the past, but that doesn’t mean that logo-decked designs can’t be done well on occasion. It would seem as though the Gucci Striped Monogram Boston Bag is one such example of logo fabric used in an attractive way. Credit where credit is due!

The key to this design, of course, is that your eyes don’t go straight to the double-G monogram fabric. Instead, the multicolored webbing in the middle takes your attention immediately, minimizing the logos to little more than a border print. The traditional, neutral color combination also helps this bag look more dignified than the logo bags that gained favor in the mid-2000s, so if you just can’t help yourself and have to carry something with branding all over it, you could do a lot worse. If you’d like to take this look a step further in the right direction, though, try a similar bag with an archival Gucci check print instead of the monogram canvas. Trust us on this one! Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1095.
