When I first see this bag, I am really amazed. It is not because unique style, multiple function, and including the material of this bag. I absolutely love neoprene handbag. I think that neoprene is a cool material bag. This Gucci Techno Horsebit Large Tote is also made mostly out of neoprene.
Smooth white leather meets shiny nickel hardware and lots of detailed stitching, insets, and panels going every which way. It has three handles, one regular woven and two detachable shoulder straps (one in woven leather and one in plain), plus a snap and flap closure and interior pockets (cotton linen lining) for your cell, pda, and other goodies. $2800
All of the hardware on Gucci’s Techno Horsebit purse reminds me of a sleek, sexy motorcycle. Since you’ll never actually find me on a motorcycle (especially not with a big purse slung over my shoulder – hello, counterbalance), carrying this handbag around is the next best thing. The details are much softer in the white leather, giving it more of a refined look – more horse, less horsepower – but it’s the black that really makes the hardware stand out.
For this bag, what you don’t know is, you can be transported Back To The Future with the built in flux capacitor. Imagine all the things you can do, like buy Birkins before prices hit 5 figures, collect the original Chanel 2.55 and of course, sell your shares of PPR before Tom Ford took off. I thought Gucci was finally going in the right direction with their back to basics collection but this could be a positive sign for the economy, people are starting to buy impractical and over the top bags again with exorbitant price tags.

Inspired by new varieties of orchids, Paravanda Frida introduced by Tourism Board and Botanic Gardens of Singapore, this collection will be named with Frida Giannini.
Paravanda Frida is a hybridization of Phalaenopsis and Vanda. It is really gracefully with 20 cm inflorescence, six buds on average, 8 cm width.
