Gucci Joy Boston Bag (With Flower Detail)
Inspired by Deysa’s post about Juicy Couture’s Beach Flower Tote, I decided to do my own post on a flower-appliquéd handbag. I came across this Gucci Joy Boston Bag pictured above. This bag features the classic GG signature pattern in white with black crocodile trim. I find the black and white aspect of the bag quite appealing actually. However, for some reason, Gucci felt it would be a good idea to embellish this bag with pinwheel-like flowers and grommets. Perhaps an elegant floral pattern printed directly on the fabric would have been a better choice.
Funny Side-Note: Over at the Bag Forum the other day, we were discussing – or rather, joking – about how Gucci likes to have a zillion different bags with the same name. The Gucci Joy Boston Bag pictured above is one of several bags all named the Joy Boston Bag. Why isn’t there any distinction between them? Who knows, but it does make things rather confusing when trying to do a web search for a particular Gucci style.
For those of you that are interested, here are the specs on this bag:
Classic Boston Shape with Double Handles
Interior Multifunction Pocket
Measures 13″W X 9″H X 7″D
Retails for $1,950.00
