We are all familiar with the fame and beauty of Gucci handbags. Luxury, sophistication and elegance are just a few of the things that we love about them. Founded in 1921 in Florence as a high quality leather manufacturer, over the decades, the brand has distinguished itself as a remarkable designer and producer of fashionable products crafted from superior materials. The truly outstanding particularity of Gucci is its ability of creating bags with a modern and feminine design that are compact, functional and effortlessly chic.
Today, I want to talk about this Gucci Disco Bag replica, a purse that will be your favorite and most useful accessory from day to evening. Its appearance is everything you would expect from a self-respecting luxury bag. Timeless, crafted from supple textured leather, paired up with a long leather cross body strap and a distinctively elegant stitched “GG” monogram, the Gucci disco is roomy enough to carry all your daily essentials. I was always fascinated by this purse and I have always wanted to see how it would look and feel up close so recently I have ordered a replica of the Soho Disco bag and after wearing it for at least a dozen times I am ready to share with you my impressions about this knockoff.
The Gucci Disco is available in black, red and light brown, but I decided to go for the black version. I personally prefer black because it avoids denim transfer on the bag. As it is a cross body model, the purse comes in contact with your clothes. And denim is famous for staining light leather cross body bags so, in this case, the safer choice was the black color.
When I first saw it, I got the impression that it is quite small, but it managed to surprise me. I was able to fit quite a lot inside. Mostly, due to its spacious bucket style shape and practical wrap around zipper. The original Gucci Disco measures W21cm x H15cm x D7cm and I was extremely happy to see that my replica has the same measurements. It is very important for an imitation to have the same size as the real product. The Gucci Disco bag is such a popular design that anyone could spot it as a fake if it doesn’t have the right measurements.
I simply adore the supple pebbled texture leather used on this purse. Not only, it has a modern and casual appearance, but it is also more resistant to scratches. Using exquisite materials is one of Gucci’s trademarks so the leather is the first thing one pays attention to when it comes to its products. This is why you should never accept a Gucci replica that doesn’t meet the same standards for leather quality. The imitation I got is crafted from very good quality leather that feels very delicate and durable, but I must say that is not as shiny as the genuine one. It does have the iconic grainy texture, but its shine is a bit quieter and discrete.
The Gucci disco is a bucket style shape bag. Its body has a squared appearance while its structure is reinforced by rounded thick trims around the edges. These give a nice modern touch to the overall quiet look of purse. The authentic product manages to stand tall by its own and avoid unpleasant creases. My Gucci replica seems to do the same. It has the same firm structure and thick, but smooth leather that suggests high quality. Next, one of the things I like the most about this imitation purse is the leather tassel that embellishes the wrap around zipper. It is fresh and playful creating a distinctively bold look that I totally adore.
Gucci makes the Soho Disco with light gold toned hardware. The metal details are represented by the large top zipper closure, the rings that connect the strap to the body of the bag, the clasp on the strap and the upper part of the leather tassel. Up close the hardware on my replica Gucci Soho Disco looks very authentic. It has the beautiful light gold color, the elegant smooth shine and a durable feel.
At the inside, this model has light color cotton linen lining that looks very classy, but is actually very predisposed to stains and dirt marks. It is very difficult to keep such an interior immaculate because all the dust will stick on the inside walls of the bag or color will get transferred from the items you put inside the purse right onto the light color linen lining. Also, at the interior of the Gucci Disco we have two pockets. One is for your phone and the other one is an open pocket. At the inside, my replica is just like the authentic product. It even has the “Gucci made in Italy” embossed leather tab.
The distinctive feature of the Gucci Soho Disco is the adjustable leather strap with a 55 cm drop that allows you to wear it across your body. This makes it very comfortable and light. The brand even offers the option of adding extra holes if you prefer to try different ways of wearing it. Due to the soft leather and perfect width of the strap it feel great both worn on the shoulder or across the body. I think that the possibility of changing it from a shoulder bag to a cross body one makes it such a wonderful accessory. You can style it up around your body during the day when you need more freedom of movement at shopping or when you’re doing your daily routine or elegantly wear it on your shoulder when you go out in the evening.
The Gucci Soho Disco is a very youthful and modern bag that serves its purpose very well. Not only it is fashionable, but it is also very practical. Now that I had the chance to wear my replica I discovered how useful and stylish this purse can be. I really love the way it feels when worn across the body, the authentic look of the leather, its roomy interior and the small details that turn it into a must have.
