Famous for its classic allure and exquisite craftsmanship, the Gucci small padlock tote is too classy for this era. This timeless luxury icon is one of the most remarkable designs ever produced by the brand. Created from the finest leather, debossed with the renowned “GG” logo and adorned with a stylish padlock closure, it has all the attributes of a gorgeous bag. It is the quintessential accessory for the modern woman, a purse that dictates fashion and style with a distinctive sense of luxury.
There’s no secret to anyone that Gucci is one of the best Italian bags manufacturers. Its style blends contemporary and traditional fashion in a manner that is incredibly seductive and irresistible. Now honestly, who could say “no” to a Gucci bag? Its legacy is based on high quality fashion, on matchless craftsmanship, exquisite materials and timeless designs. By combining the debossed Gucci signature leather, the iconic Padlock, the elegant small size top handles and the compact trapezium briefcase, the brand has created one of its most successful models- the Padlock Gucci Signature Top Handle bag.
The Gucci Padlock Bag was first launched in 2015 during the Gucci Spring/Summer 2016 Collection. Creative Director Alessandro Michele was the one that designed it and since then it has been a huge success with celebrities such as Dakota Johnson, Kris Jenner, Tara Reid and Elle Fanning. Manufactured exclusively in Italy, the Gucci Padlock Signature Top Handles comes in three size versions: small, medium and large. And it is available in various materials and prints including Gucci Signature, GG Supremene Canvas, Python, Tian print and Embroided and Studded leather.
I have always been intrigued by this purse and, most importantly, I have dreamed of wearing it on my arm and seeing how it actually feels and looks. Now, I am happy to say that I am the proud owner of this amazing Gucci replica bag. And after having it with me for a couple of weeks in the most diverse places and situations, I must say I am very surprised by its utility and functionality given its humble sizes. It is not only a very beautiful bag, but also a very practical and useful one no matter how demanding your life style may be. Mums, entrepreneurs, shopping enthusiasts or fashionistas, this is the right bag for you. It never disappoints. Continue reading my review and find out how great this bag really is.
My replica is actually the small size and it only measures 11 inches wide x 7.5 inches high x 4.5 inches deep. On a different note, I must say that I find its design intriguing. Purposed as a small structured bag with a key lock closure for which the key is carefully hid in a leather key case attached to the handle, this ageless tote is cleverly decorated with gold toned hardware, a feminine rounded top carry handle and a fancy adjustable shoulder strap. At the interior, the briefcase-like bag features a delicate suede lining, one zipped pocket and one smartphone pocket. Everything about the Padlock Small Gucci Signature Top Handle bag echoes sophistication and refinement.
As the name also suggests, the main point of interest is the very sleek closure system that opens with a small pinch. And this very interesting lock closure is opened by a small key that is placed in a dramatic leather key case which is tied around the handle. It really is a complicated concept for a bag that looks so simple and easy to use. Just like the real purse, my Padlock Gucci replica comes with the same lock closing system and the squared hardware used to construct this intricate padlock is beautifully polished, finished and engraved with the Gucci logo. Furthermore, the key folder and the two golden keys are flawless clones of the real thing. I simply adore the feeling I get every time I use the keys to open my bag. The whole sophistication gives me the sensation that my bag is more than a replica, it is the closest thing to the genuine Gucci.
What I love the most about my Gucci Padlock imitation is the debossed Gucci signature leather with its beautifully defined print and firm texture. Even though my purse is a knockoff, it is manufactured from a very fine grain leather that feels very soft and durable without compromising its shine. The modern spirit of this model is captured effortlessly by its trapezium shape which turns it into a very chic and practical briefcase that can be carried either on your arm by using the tubular top handle or on your shoulder by using the adjustable and detachable shoulder strap. Taking a closer look at my imitation has made me realize that it has been crafted very accurately. The sides are made from plain leather whereas the front and back are debossed GG leather. The top handle has the same tubular shape and fine finishing just as the long strap has perfect stitching. Everything seems to be very exact and authentic looking.
The back side of the Gucci Padlock Top Handle replica bag comes with the same unusually shaped exterior pocket that can be used for phones, documents or cards. Its top side has a round cut making it easy to grab things when you need them. Similarly, the long bottom comes with another innovation. It has 5 round golden studs instead of 4. The 5th one is right in the center; thus providing improved support to the bag no matter how full or heavy it is.
The Gucci Padlock is superior to the numerous designer handbags available on the market because it is so brilliantly designed and executed from the outside to the inside. And even though many brands decide to go for simple interiors, Gucci pushed the limits and created a clever interior that offers maximum utility to its owner. A splendid Camel microfiber lining with supple suede finish complements the inside of the Padlock tote. With this purse you will always be extremely organized as it has a zip pocket, a smartphone compartment and two side gussets. I was surprised to see how many things I can carry in my Gucci Padlock replica and that these are so neatly separated and easy to access. Mobile phone, makeup, wallet, sanitizer and more can fit in this modest sized bag.
To emphasis luxury and distinction, the purse comes with gold toned hardware both at the inside and outside. Every single metallic piece added on the Gucci Small Padlock Top Handle has been nicely polished and engraved with the brand’s name and logo. This choice of color and finishing is a very nice match to the overall classy look of the bag. I have turned my replica around many times trying to spot differences in the shine or craftsmanship of the hardware, but I haven’t found any flaws. Similarly, the stitching on the bag is very beautiful. The stitches are even, there are no loose threads or other imperfections. Everything looks nice and authentic.
You don’t have to be a huge Gucci fan to fall in love with the Padlock Small Gucci Signature Top Handle bag. You just need to have good taste. It is a modern and chic design with an incredible potential. Fashionable and stylish, this small tote can very well be worn as a feminine briefcase as it is very well organized, spacious and comfortable. Deciding to get a replica of the black Gucci Padlock Signature has been one of the best choices I ever made. The purse is very beautiful and similar to the original one. It is the right bag for women who adore classy purses, but value their money more than they value the name stamped on the product.
