This is the real deal: A vintage red, leather Gucci bag circa 1970s or ’80s that our friend (and overall New York style boss) Susanita was showing off for us at the weekend during brunch at Dudley’s in the Lower East Side. Super awesome.
We recently met the super-talented New York-based Japanese artist-illustrator Akane Ogura, who showed us one of the awesome reclaimed vintage denim tote bags she has designed. We hear these have been selling out. Ogura also has designed lots of other cool totes, too, all hand-made by the artist. We really like the detail in the print and logo-tag designs. Great stuff.
