A few sharp-eyed readers spied my Goyard tote in San Francisco in my earlier blog entries.... and here is the close up feature entry. I purchased the Goyard St Louis Tote [mine is the larger size - PM they call it].
Goyard is a brand that is very established, and yet not super mainstream like, say, Louis Vuitton or Gucci [both of which I am not a fan of]. I like the that it is 'branded' but not 'common'. Colleagues who saw me with this bag went Huh, which is fine by me.
I have been to the Goyard store in Paris, at Harvey Nicolas in Hong Kong and the main store at The Peninsula Plaza. This is something which has been on my mind years back, but I have never felt the impulse to buy it til I was at the SF store [located at Powell St, at the Westin Francis Hotel, right next to the Victoria Secret store, you can't miss it].
Bagaholicboy has a Goyard in HK profile [lots of useful information, price information, etc] entry on his site, Click HERE, if you are interested to know more about Goyard.
Btw, Hong Kong is the nearest place we can get our hands on Goyard. Or you can mail the London Store and have them ship over to you.
The Goyard St Louis Tote is a simple carry-all bag, it's like a shopping bag, which you can throw everything in. I got this bag on Day 2, and used it almost everyday of the trip. It came in super handy as my airplane hand-carry bag, cos I can keep my headphones, scarf, toiletries, etc etc inside, and it doesn't even look stuffed. The Louis Vuitton carry-all is the same shape to this St Louis Tote.
I got it in Green because I felt it's the most classic color, and also something different than the regular black or tan color. White is nice too, but impractical. So Green it is! :)
Some pictures of me and the bag.
If I ever buy another Goyard bag, it would be the Boeing45 in black or tan color.
I hope I don't start a habit of owning Goyard bags, cos I really don't want to spend big moolah on bags.
That's all, and thanks for looking!
