Salvatore Ferragamo Gancio Esotico Shoulder Bag


Let's kick off the week with one heck of an ugly bag. Many thoughts rush to mind when I look at the Salvatore Ferragamo Gancio Esotico Shoulder Bag. It reminds me of mold, boils, the plague and pretty much every other disgusting sickness you can think of. This fondente (chocolate) brown leather shoulder bag could have been quite nice had they not decided to destroy the snake-embossed leather exterior with this ridiculous "bubble" pattern. I don't really know what to call it except horrible. The buckle detailing on the sides is a nice touch and the color by itself is very beautiful, but the treatment of the embossing is so distracting it's difficult to appreciate any of the bag's more appealing attributes. It measures 14 x 9 x 2 and comes with a detachable shoulder strap, but who cares. The bag is priced at $2390. Yikes! Not only did the design team at Salvatore Ferragamo drop the ball on this design, they add insult to injury with the inflated price tag. They do realize it's snake-embossed leather, not actual snakeskin, right?
