The Case of the Givenchy Beaded Pluto Bag


Before I get lambasted for giving my trepidatious stamp of approval to this bag, let me state my case in its favor. I'll be the first to admit this bag is not for everyone. In fact, it's not even for me. I don't really need a small (5 x 8 x 2.5) suede bag covered in multi-colored beads, and I certainly don't need its insanely ridiculous $2500 price tag. With that being said, I like the Givenchy Beaded Pluto Bag very much. If it were priced at least $1500-1800 less than it is, I'd give it a go. It's different in a good way. The beaded exterior will appeal to boho chicks and urban gals alike. The irony of this bag is that it's actually a timeless design, beads and all. It's a pity the bag is priced way out of reason. If, however, money is not an issue for you and you're in the market for something different and fun, the Givenchy Beaded Pluto Bag will make an interesting addition to your bag collection. I rest my case. Any rebuttals?

    It appealed to me as well, although I would not purchase it. The first thing that popped in my head when I saw it was the game 'Lite Brite'!

    Ummmm...Dania have you lost your mind? This bag is hideous and OUTRAGEOUSLY overpriced! Plus the size and shape is so 1998.

    P.S. I used to LOVE Lite Brite Gail!

    I knew you'd hate it, Michael. It's definitely a "love it" or "hate it" sort of bag. The Lite Brite reference is undeniable. Maybe that's why I like it so much.

    This bag wouldn't even cause someone to blink down here in Miami. I've seen some of the most outrageous designs ever in SoBe. Something like this rates as pretty mundane in these parts. Miami fashion tends to swing toward the colorful.

    The size is small, but this is meant to be more of an evening bag. I can't imagine the beading on a larger scale.
