Gucci shakes off its stuffy image and puts on the glitz with this Malika clutch.
Gucci is ordinarily so staid and refined, that I hardly believed it was behind this playful purse. Happily it’s just as luxurious as any handbag we’d expect the Italian fashion house to produce, but it’s a lot more fun.
Ordinarily I might shy away from such a garish metallic color, but the soft bow shape makes this purse appear as if it’s made from liquid gold. That’s real python skin too, not some cheap synthetic or embossed imitation. You’ll pay $1900 for the privilege of carrying the real deal, but I’m sure fashion purists won’t mind that one bit.
I love the look, but I’m not sure whether I’d be as enthusiastic if I were using the Malika. You’ll need to unknot that silky braided tie every time you want to access the interior. You can fit plenty inside the oversized space, but if it’ll be such a trial to get to, would you really want to?
This is a very luxurious purse, but it lets us down on a few practical points. That’s not uncommon for an evening bag, but when a clutch costs this much I expect it to come closer to perfection.
