Gustto Large Estola  BagFor all of you who follow celebs and handbags as much as we do, you’ve noticed that Gustto handbags are making their way to the forefront of many magazines. I feel like more times than not, I turn my head and I see a celeb carrying a Gustto handbag. I was lucky enough to meet with some of the Gustto staff a couple months ago back in San Diego and I can’t wait to continue to bring you great news about Gustto – I am sure you’ll be as happy as I am! Gearing up to that, check out the great Valentine’s Day answers Agathe, the Creative Director and President of Gustto had to share with us!

Being from France, are there different traditions when it comes to Valentine’s Day there than here? Valentine’s Day is, universally, about “l’amour” – spending time with the person you love. Traditions are the same in France, and with the French in America! One tradition my husband and I have is to wake up together and have breakfast in bed – we like croissants and fresh-squeezed orange juice, sometimes a mimosa! We also make that day our own; we turn off our Blackberries and just make the day about us. (more…)

Hillary Duff carrying Gustto PaviaGustto is not a new brand, yet it still might have just entered many of handbag lovers radar screens. I’ve mentioned before that I had a chance to visit the Gustto office out in San Diego, California last November. It was great to meet so many folks that help drive the company. While I was out there, I was told that many handbags had been picked up by some of our favorite celebs and that we were bound to see them more and more. Well, that certainly is the truth. Hilary Duff has been spotted carrying the Gustto Pavia handbag all over the place. And although I know some of you might not really follow the whole “It Brand”, but Gustto handbags seem to have made their way up there. The Gustto Pavia is a gorgeous large soft suede bucket style handbag. The vertical zigzag pattern gives the handbag personality while the open top and handles with brass hardware offers a different look and feel. Duff carried the grey Pavia, but you can get yours in purple, olive or black if you are not fond of the grey. Buy through shoprumor for $665.

Gustto has been making it’s way into my heart over the past few months. Gorgeous yet practical, these handbags also seem to have something extra to them.

Today’s secret code: Agathe

I’ve been on a navy kick this week. A couple days ago over on Purse Blog, I wrote about the Fendi Borderline Satin Clutch which boasts gorgeous blue satin. Now, I just have to share the Gustto Cala Croco Satchel. Since I mentioned the navy kick, I am sure you already know that the first thing I noticed about this handbag was the gorgeous navy stamped italian croco leather. But the more I looked at it, the more I fell in love with the double handles. These aren’t just any double handles, they have character! The bag has plenty of storage space and sturdy canvas lining. At the same time, I can’t get over how durable yet fashionable the bag looks. This being the case, this is the kind of handbag that will last for seasons to come without ever becoming dated. Add the reasonable price tag to the equation and you have a great handbag! Buy through Saks for $539.
