Donna Karan Sabre Shoulder Bag

Help me out with this one, folks. The Donna Karan Sabre Shoulder Bag is reminding me a lot of Gucci and I can’t quite figure out why.

Is it the shape? Gucci tends to make a lot of big, chunky shoulder bags. Or maybe the color? I’m not a big fan of tan, but Gucci’s tans have always held a special place in my heart – I think they get the amount of orange undertone just right. This one doesn’t seem quite the same, but it’s reminiscent, I think. Maybe it’s the “rustic” accents? There’s no Gucci-signature bamboo, but the claw-like (or tooth-like?) closure still reminds me of the kinds of things they like to do. So are you seeing what I’m seeing, or have I looked at so many handbags that they’re all starting to blur together in my mind? Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $1895.

    No I agree it has some of Gucci’s features. Leather quality and look, shape and mainly the ivory-tooth-like closure that gives it a little african look. I like it.

    new jackie, icon bit and g wave kinda have that shape and I agree with So – the leather reminds of gucci. but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s all blended in your mind, maybe you needed a vacation from handbags Amanda :)


    I think it’s the latch that is kinda similar with the “old” gucci bags

  • Handbag Lover

    I agree with the others, I think it is the latch and the tooth closure. It is a cute bag but not worth $1895.

    …but it aint Gucci

  • Michael St. James

    I think it’s the price…lol. This bag is much hotter in white!

  • Jenn

    I like the overall look and shape, but my patience would wear thin [quickly] with that flap and hook closure!

  • Jane

    I think it is the heavy accent towards the center of the handbag. The latch and the tooth. It has a similar feel to the Gucci G wave. I have seen this bag in white and it is sexy.

  • birkel

    yes it does happen to me it seems to look like the new jackie bag but the jackie itself looks like the hermes trim and so i can say its such a general bag shape that is why it might seem like a familiar shape

    This bag is ugly so I don’t know if I’d compare it to Gucci. It looks funny with that shiny bone on the front.
