Guess Visage East-West Satchel | Ostrich Embossed Coffee Bow Bag

Posted on: Jul 8

Guess Visage SatchelGuess is back to its old tricks with this Visage east-west satchel. Fans of the label are likely to love its exotic impersonation, but I can't imagine this satchel will win the brand any new fans.

When done well, exotic embossing can be a wonderful way to enjoy a rich finish for less. When done poorly however, the mimicry just makes the bag's material appear cheaper. Sadly that's what's happened here. The ostrich embossed based isn't too bad, but the crocodile trim is terrible. This skin has a cheap, plastic like sheen which is really unbecoming, and its scales lack realism. The mix of embossing is confusing; it actually makes the Visage seem less luxurious, not more as was intended.

The Visage isn't without merits though. Guess' subdued color palette shows uncharacteristic restraint, and the bow works well with the structured design to give the Visage an on-trend retro feel. It's just a shame that Guess chose to over-embellish those attractive base elements.

If you like Guess' heavy handed approach to design though, you probably won't find fault with the bag as a whole. It's a good size for everyday use, and its zippered pocket and trio of open pockets exceeds our expectations.

It's not to my tastes, but Guess fans are getting a decent deal here for $125.
