Slowly but surely Gustto bags have made their way into the hearts of many readers on this site. Many have said that at first glance, this brand is a little too far out there for their liking. However, as the brand continues to grow and diversify, there are more bags I like than bags I’m not fond of. There are certain details that are a bit much for me, but with the right outfit, I really think you can let the bag do the talking and pull together a great look. (more…)

Gustto handbags are not new to us here at Purse Blog. In fact, we like these handbags so much that they are without a doubt one of our favorite Savvy Brands over at Purse Blog Savvy.
Recently I had a chance to speak with Founder and Creative Director of Gustto, Agathe Planchon. As she splits her time between San Diego and NYC it was no shock that I picked up on her easy going and approachable San Diego vibe.
Her story is not only amazing, but also a breath of fresh air. Of course we are all aware of the current state of the economy, but Agathe’s outlook is inspiring and uplifting. More than anything else, it was wonderful to hear that people still dream and believe in success. And it is no wonder so many celebrities have been spotted carrying these bags. They are unique, well made and a great accessory to so many outfits. We’ve had a chance to photograph some of these bags in person for our Bag Art and they were certainly hard to give back. We hope you enjoy the interview and make sure to stay tuned, there is much more Gustto to come!
For 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…)
