I spy with my snobby eye…two bags that look like they were separated at birth! I’m loving the Gucci 1970 reissue ($2,650), but it looks just like Salvatore Ferragamo’s shoulder bag ($1,625). Both are flat silhouettes with that distinctive gold hardware detail at the corners.
Gucci is all about the seventies this spring (mixed with some Art Deco bling), so it make sense that theirs has a slouchy, flared shape. Topped with that metal tassel, it’s got a disco vibe going on which is so crazy-fabulous. Then there’s the Ferragamo. Never one to make a fuss, it’s a traditional structured hobo with clean lines – not as much personality as the good-time Gucci, but it’s a solid option for everyday.
Which do you prefer: the classic or the reinvented? You know my answer – anything with more personality is always the better choice.
