As they say, the devil is in the details. Well, in the world of high-end handbags, sometimes that’s where you can find the design as well. And it’s the details that bring me back to the Gucci Crest Boule Fabric Tote over and over again. We’ve all seen plenty of ho-hum (and some slightly more than ho-hum) canvas totes from this brand over the years; besides their signature horsebit details, it’s probably one of the things for which they’re best known. But none has been so precise and sleek as this beauty right here.

Gucci Crest Boule Fabric Tote

It’s possible that the exclusion of the Gucci signature from this tote is what makes it look so clean and sophisticated, but I think it’s more than that. The thick leather trim and handles give the bag a heft and structure that few canvas totes have, and it makes it look a lot more purposeful and expensive-looking than other bags of this variety. The one thing I can’t get behind, though, is the price – even one of the nicest canvases totes I’ve ever seen still isn’t worth almost two grand. For that kind of dosh, I’m going to need leather. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $1990.

    Love the vintage diamond pattern and the trimmings are grown-up. I’ve just seen this bag IRL – breathtaking!

  • Pursecrzy

    I really like the canvas as I’ve never been a fan of the GG fabric. Love the leather and shape but the price is CRAZY!

  • pakiza

    Purses are like your gorgeous porche, ferrari.. jaguar that instead of leaving parked at the parking lot you carry with you for everyone to notice!!!

    What a great, refined Gucci tote. Would never pay this price for fabric, though. Just can’t do it. Sorry, Gucci.

  • Cate

    I really don’t like it, can they stop putting the hysteria decoration on their bags? It’s awful! If I spent that kind of money, I would buy the New Jackie from Gucci, much better and classy

  • Valerie

    Love it great bag. <3

  • Valerie

    Especially the details

  • amelia masniari

    so pretty but the price makes me hysteria…. $1900 for canvas tote???? no way… with or without financial crisis….

  • JenG

    Love it!

  • lindaC

    Nope! Not my cup of tea. It’s plain ugly.

    I really like this bag. It has everything I like about signature bags, lightweight, contrast leather trim, hardware but without the obnoxious logo all over it. I also love the shape and the convertible option. Does it zip on top like a hidden zipper ? If I had a job outside of the house I would buy it as a work bag especially since I wear a lot of black.

    The detail lies in the crests. It is 24k Gold plated crest with lens. Making of one such crest takes 2 days. The full leather for this bag will cost around 3K. It is very expensive and well structured but lacks friendliness.

  • LDJ

    Ok, I like this. Perfect size and everything…..

  • Cara

    It’s a beauty. If I’m going to pay $2K for a bag, I want all leather with lots of nice hardware. I guess I’ll wait.

  • Eric

    yeah the bag really looks expensive-(fb)

  • beanyce126

    love totes, and very classic looking, logo not all over the place. (ipad)

  • San Fran Nortena

    LOVE this bag and have been looking for it everywhere. Since it’s last years, I’m stuck looking on consignment sites or Ewwbay. The one thing that I don’t like about it is it looks very structured in the pics but IRL it is very slouchy. I’m over slouchy for the moment. Have enough Gucci hobos and want a structured bag now!! The Gucci Babouska Top Handle is the one I think I’m going for!!

    I have a Crest Boule black leather, medium shoulder bag. Can literally say that I found it in a pile of crap so my luck :-) it has minor conditions but fixable I think and other than that – looks like it was never worn. I am getting more and more happy about it – it took me some while to learn about it since I am not shopping at high end stores for thousands of dollars. If I am left with it and can’t find a buyer soon, then I’ll be the envy of the town and that’s not too bad either.
