    Default Gucci Joy Boston Bag (With Flower Detail)

    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
    Zip-Top Closure
    D-Ring
    Interior Multifunction Pocket
    Gold Hardware
    Measures 13"W X 9"H X 7"D
    Retails for $1,950.00

    Pre-orders for this particular Gucci Joy Boston bag can be placed at: Women's & Men's Designer Apparel, Shoes, Handbags & More | Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Juicy Couture, more - Saks.com

    this bag is interesting, but i prefer the joy boston more simple and classic, and without all the flooff.

    Yeah, I agree. Like I said in the post, if they wanted to have a little embellishment then why didn't they just have a nice accent design printed on the fabric (instead of attaching pinwheel flowers with grommets)?

    I actually like it, but it's so not me. I would probably never wear it.

    I think it's cute. I'm not a big fan of black and white together, reminds me too much of my HS Concert Choir Uniform, but I think it's really cute.
