The Gucci Soho Leather Disco Bag

Arguably, one of the more older bags in the luxury handbag market, the Gucci Soho Disco maintains a spot in the hearts of luxury goods lovers the world over.  Personally, I think I saw this bag back in 2013. If you’re like me, you probably liked it but didn’t really think you’d buy it given that luxury good rarely make a good cross-body bag. It either be too long or the bag is too small.

Thankfully, I find myself happily wrong about this particular cross-body bag. But first, let’s get the details out of the way. To clarify, we’ll be taking a closer look at the Rose Beige Soho Leather Disco Bag. As per the actual Gucci website, the Soho leather Disco Bag has these details going for it:

  • Light finegold toned hardware
  • Rose beige Leather
  • Leather Tassel
  • Embossed Interlocking G
  • Cotton Linen Lining
  • Adjustable Leather Strap with a 21.6 inch drop
  • Interior phone and open pockets
  • Top zip closure
  • Small size: 8 inch W x 6 inch H x 2.7 inch D
  • Made in Italy

For others, the rather encompassing monogram can be daunting but in this shade, it’s rather subdued in its appearance so it certainly has the power to woo those who aren’t usually fans of logos.

I particularly like how the strap is really adjustable. I can wear it on my shoulder or as a cross-body bag. A fact that I truly appreciate is that when I bought mine, I asked the client liaison at the store if it was possible to add more holes to the strap–in case I wanted something even shorter–they were more than happy to oblige. I think only actual Gucci retail outlets do this for you.

Touching the bag yields you a smooth yet fleshy surface–indicative of quality leather. The tassel, while large, I think is a perfect addition to the bag. Not only does it serve as a good grip for the zipper, but it’s also a good accessory that brings the whole look together.

It was lighter than what I initially thought it would be. I suppose that’s because of the fact the inside of the Soho Disco is lined with cloth and not more leather. I tried weighing it and I was pleased to find it comes in at less than a pound.

For it’s size, it can carry quite a bit without any threat of getting bent out of its original shape. It is to be noted, however, that since this is pure leather, it’s not a very good cold weather bag. It can get wet or damp which can lead to issues when not cleaned properly. It is, however, a perfect back for summer and tropical vacations. It’ll be a perfect carrier for your daily basics.

For those asking, the price of this bag starts at around $980. Certain colors go on sale at the end of each season while some (like the Rose Beige) do not go on sale. Depending where you’re at or where you’re planning on buying the Soho Disco Leather Bag, the price might even go up to $1300.

Don’t let that scare you! Regardless of its price, the heft it can carry and the stylishness that never goes away is more than enough incentive to purchase one for yourself.

The LV Speedy 30

The LV Speedy 30

‘Tis the season to be jolly and mostly well-fed again! I think it’s pretty natural that this season always brings up the topic of gift-giving. I mean, it’s what this whole season is about for most people–specially the kids, amirite? Well, speaking for the kid in me, I still get a bit giddy thinking about presents. Wouldn’t you?

Mostly, my wishlist contains clothing that fits just perfect with room for the holiday pounds. However, if I were to really think about it, there’s always been a usual suspect on the list. That would be my ultimate bag crush: the ever classic Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 handbag.

Seriously, doesn’t that thing just drip class from every seam and stitch? I mean just look at it! It’s as cute as a button with the carrying capacity of a black hole (not to be taken literally of course). I must have poured hours watching reviews and unboxing videos of lucky guys and gals out there because it really doesn’t grow old and the fact that I learn new things about this bag each time. I seriously didn’t know that the Speedy is practically one of the first handbags made by Louis Vuitton when he decided to branch out into fashion. Louis Vuitton also made a smaller size of Speedy for the very beautiful Audrey Hepburn. Knowing now that this bag has such rich history attached to it only makes me want it more.

Past aside, I constantly stay impressed with how people say that this bag is practically indestructible. The detail on the leather  remains immaculate and consistent throughout all the Speedy bags that have been released out into the market. I suspect that those that have complaints bought from dodgy third party sellers. Now any girl worth her salt will know that it’s best to buy direct from legitimate Louis Vuitton branches or partners.

If I were to ever get one, I would really stick with Speedy 30 instead of going down with a 25 or higher. I think the size is just right to carry most of what I usually do and then some! When I tell my friends about my bag crush, they often remark on how it’s not cute at all with its monogram print. I suppose it’s an acquired taste, personally I think it’s classic–but luckily different sorts of prints have become available for buyers. Louis Vuitton was astute enough to partner with other designers and leather providers to come up with various designs that vary with the seasons and the years.

One of the biggest reasons why I remain in love with this bag is because compared to other brands, the pricing for Speedy have been lighter on the purse. I think lately, a Speedy 25 goes for around $900 or less. Other brands like Hermes will charge you $1500 for a bag that’s a lot smaller than the Speedy so in terms of practicality, the Speedy still wins out.

And really, just having a Speedy 30 on your arm is just a delight I cannot wait to experience. So to this day, I have to really say my opinion of the Speedy 30 hasn’t diminished in the least. In the contrary, it’s been strengthened and I really can’t wait for the day that I get to afford this lovely designer bag!
