Gucci Hysteria Python Purse | Sleek and Swoonworthy Snakeskin Satchel

Posted on: Jan 13

Okay, I'll be honest. A lot of the bags in Gucci's Hysteria line did not, as promised, get my pulse racing. But this stunning python purse definitely has me hot and bothered. 

You might recognize it as one of the bags carried by the deliciously evil Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) on last season's Gossip Girl. I know I remember it, because Georgina and this bag brought the fashion consciousness of GG into a whole new stratosphere.

The round slouchiness of the bag perfectly showcases the naturally geometric appeal of the snakeskin. The combination of the sleek, simple 80's-inspired design and the python makes for luxurious look. The neat pleating adds volume and symmetry with the vertical striping of the snakeskin.

The color is rich and neutral. The subtle brown-to-black variations mean that this is an extremely versatile piece. It has a Dynasty-era bad girl appeal, but, given its sleek lines, I think it could work for more conservative types, as well.

The petite handle blends in so well with the shape of the bag that it is almost decorative. In case it is too impractical for you, there is also a removable shoulder strap, which is held to the bag with delicate gold side clasps. The large button detail reinforces the handles, and their roundness mimics the overall shape of the bag. 

At $3,000 retail, most of us won't be as lucky to own this number as Miss Georgina Sparks, but for an exotic skin designer bag, the price isn't actually unreasonable as an investment for women with a little extra change to spare. The rest of can just hope that when Georgina enjoys her much trumped-up reprise, so will the Gucci Hysteria Python Purse.
