What is this? Do my eyes deceive me? Have I gone delirious from too many hours spent clacking away at my computer keyboard? Have the recession gods chosen to shine down upon us for a brief, fleeting, beautiful moment?

Has Gucci released a leather hobo with a price tag substantially under $1000? Because it looks like that’s exactly what the Gucci Web Guccisima Hobo is.

Gucci Web Guccisima Hobo

I’ll be straight with you on this one – it’s not going to win any awards for innovative design. It’s a black leather hobo with Guccisima embossing and a very simple closure. But what it is is perfectly functional and neutral; the kind of bag that every woman needs one of in her closet. It’s a go-anywhere, do-anything sort of purse.

And because of the extra-long lead time between when a bag is designed and when it lands in stores, I doubt this is any sort of nod to the current economic climate. But it is particularly opportune, and maybe a little boring, but a bag that most people would probably find a use for if they had it in their closet. And at this price point, a lot more people can add it to their collection than might have before. Buy through Saks for $875

    This is only exciting because of the price. Its good that Gucci has paid attention to the needs of its customers. But the bag is blah.

  • otter

  • EveB

    I have been checking this bag out to replace my black fabric Gucci. So it worth the buy?

  • Beth

    I’m not a Gucci person, but this is a beautiful basic black hobo. I’d buy it and carry it just about anywhere!

  • Urooj

    I have to have it. Thanks for the info!

  • chirpy_gal

  • Dayzley

  • Urooj

    Cara, whom did you buy it from on ebay? I have been trying to find it online but I am not sure who to trust :/

  • bagKrazy!!!

    I like!!!very understated n multi-functional!!

  • Cara


    Urooj- I bought it from some random person but paid to have it authenticated on Castira before I purchased.

    I will tell you that the guccissima leather is different on this bag than the typical guccissima. It is thinner and lighter. I have the Guccissima chain hobo and it’s MUCH thicker.

    The bag is light weight and beautiful. Very comfortable to carry on the shoulder.

    Good good price!!
    but still too plain and boring.. will give this one a miss! In any case not a fan of Gucci

  • Cara

  • mj

  • cassie

    saw this bag in the boutique today. thinking about it or fendi mia flap top handbag.

  • cari

    really good for casual carrying ,with the advantage of economic price and yeah little bit functional as well.

  • mamahusky

    This bag is ABSOLUTELY perfect for those people who is under budget or low budget but wants to experience to carry a designer handbag like GUCCI. I owned one of this which is brown and so perfectly comfortable to carry on your shoulder coz’ the strap on the middle is wide. it don’t hurt your shoulder a lot. And a lot of space inside. The leather is so gorgeous. Im planning to buy one more.

    I just bought this in the monogram fabric with off white handle/trim. It’s FABULOUS! I’m not normally a Gucci chic. I’m an LV diva and former Coach Fanatic. This one sold me though. So cute. On line Saks also has it available for preorder in dark brown.
