I have been loving Gucci lately and I finally decided to pick up something that I had been wanting for a while now. It is the Gucci Soho Leather Disco bag which is a very, very popular bag, but it seems like it is being phased out and replaced by the new Marmont collection, so I wanted to get it before it went out of stock. I purchased mine a couple of weeks ago from the Gucci flagship store on Old Bond Street and the service I received was amazing, so if you are in London and looking to buy anything from Gucci, I highly recommend that store. The bag is also available for purchase at Gucci.com and you can find links to all colours below.
I considered getting it in either red or rose beige for spring/summer, but when I tried on all of the colours, the black seemed like the most practical and classic one. The leather is very soft, but the grainy texture makes it durable and less susceptible to damage. It has the interlocking GG logo embossed on the front, which is really pretty but subtle at the same time. I love the light gold hardware and the leather tassel which add some really nice details. The zip is very smooth and because of the rectangular shape and soft leather the bag opens really wide, so it’s very easy to get into. The strap is not removable, but it’s adjustable, so if you are shorter or taller, you can wear it cross-body and don’t need to worry that it might sit too low or too high on your body. The size of the bag is W21cm x H15cm x D7cm and you can fit so much more in it than you think. The inside is beige canvas material which seems very durable and has two slide pockets that can fit some cards, keys or other small items.
I have been using this bag every day since I got it and it has been so great! It has completely replaced three other bags that I have now sold, as I knew I wasn’t going to use them once I purchased this one and I couldn’t be happier with my decision! It is super light and easy to carry, fits all of my essentials and is more reasonably priced than most other designer bags. So far, I’m in love with it and would definitely recommend it. I don’t know if it’s going to be discontinued or not (I really hope not!), but if you want to get it, I wouldn’t wait too long, because even if it doesn’t get discontinued, I won’t be surprised if it goes up in price again considering how popular it has been recently.
Let me know if you have any questions about this bag or want to see what fits in it!
