Plain bags may not bring much appeal to many, but if you are to think practically, you know that you’d always be able to carry it around even for years. Gucci handbags are known for its simple and kind of plain design, and this Gucci Techno Horsebit Cellarius Metallic Medium Hobo Bag is another addition to their list.
Indeed, this Gucci Hobo looks plain, yet good thing it comes finished with subtle sheen since it is made from metallic leather. I love how the color is done on this bag; since aside from looking neutral, it also sets a modern vibe to it. The hobo only has stitching that is vertically placed on the front to create design, though there’s still their usual tassels and bamboo detail hanging on the side along with a luggage tag.

The Burberry Plissé Leather Tote is a very pretty bag with a lot more character than you usually see in either a tote or in the white family.
Throwing the descriptor "simple" out the door, this bag is lavish in its complexity and style. There's one big pleat in this luxurious plissé leather, artfully balanced with a low logo tag. Rivets trim the edges of this bowler shape, adding both sparkle and strength. What you can't see is the luxurious black lining, as well as the protective metal feet (goldtone, of course). The 13"W X 13½"H X 6½"D bag has multiple interior compartments, and the generous width ensures you won't run out of space.
The Burberry Small Check Shoulder Bag is a delightfully kicky new venture for Burberry.
This happily trimmed purse also comes in a cheery shade of red, which picks up the red line in the Burberry check quite handsomely -- but we couldn't resist featuring this sunny, yet autumnal yellow.

The items were the same pricey coats — part of an aviator-themed collection by designer Christopher Bailey— that would be in stores months later.
