Salvatore Ferragamo Maia Gancio Tote | Red Colorblocked Raffia Handbag

Posted on: Jun 15

Salvatore Ferragamo Maia Gancio ToteIf you thought raffia bags were simply cheap and cheerful throwaway items, think again. Salvatore Ferragamo gives us a more luxurious alternative with this Maia Gancio Raffia Tote.

The striking red raffia makes this tote a real head turner. I don't always embrace colorblocked designs, but the strip of blood red raffia bordering the brighter scarlet shade works really well. The contrast is just subtle enough to win me over, if anything in such vivid shades can be called subtle!

The bold fan shape also helps the Maia Gancio stand out from the pack. This wide, open design is anchored by a tortoiseshell printed ring handle. I love the art deco vibe this handle brings, perhaps enough to overlook its impracticality. Although if you ask me again when the bag is loaded up I might not be so forgiving!

I wouldn't push it too far as raffia is a naturally brittle material, even when it's been worked under designer hands. Overstuffing will also make it difficult to find anything, as there's only a single zippered pocket inside.

It's got more style than substance, but those luxury good looks make a compelling argument. And at $990, the price isn't completely unreasonable by designer standards. Salvatore Ferragmo, you're tempting me.
