gryson, gryson, gryson.

23 March 2009

I have fallen in love – with yet another bag, of course. Bags, plural, for that matter. Or shall I just say with one brand in particular? Gryson has indeed claimed a portion of my heart with it’s Spring/Summer 09 collection on handbags. Whilst browsing about online for a [potential] new spring bag (a.k.a. drooling over bags, but not actually purchasing), I came across Gryson. Unaffordable for a humble self-made bloggerette like myself, but generally speaking, seems affordable for the general assortment of bloggers out there. Is the price tag worth it? Oh yes. Oh, yes.

gryson-tutu-double-zip-bag-in-purple1The Tutu Double Zip in Purple (shop.gryson.com; $955) was the first to have stolen my heart. It was its vividly obnoxious (I mean this in the best way possible) fuschia color that caught my eye; I can only imagine how fabulous it would look with my all-black ensembles. The perfect pop of color is through an accessory, non? After looking at the charcoal version, I knew it wasn’t the color that made it so covetable. I have a penchant for satchels, preferably leather ones on the larger side with multiple zip components and a top handle. And with all those characteristics in addition to a removable shoulder strap, I have made my bag match. It meets all the requirements I have for a bag, with five gold stars (well, silver, since I do prefer silver hardware over gold) in the categories of practicality and aesthetic appeal. The fuschia is unbelievably gorgeous, and slightly rock ‘n roll in the unconventional feminine pink; the charcoal is oh-so-sophisticated, making it the perfect everyday bag. I’d love to own both. I will own both! I am quite determined here.

gryson-tutu-double-zip-bag-in-charcoalGryson’s totes are quite lovely as well. The Sevillana Twistlock in Buff (shop.gryson.com; $855) is so versatile, wearable and pair-able for any outfit at any given season. It acts as the perfect tote for work or school in the autumn, the brown neutrals reminiscent of the fallen leaves. In the summer it becomes a sophisticated beach tote, pulling an outfit of a loose tank, denim cutoffs, and brown gladiators together for an elegant ensemble along the boardwalk. I love the gradient color blocking from chocolate brown, to chestnut, to cream. Gorgeous.

    That last tote is PERFECT for me!! I must buy it for work!!

    I think I shall.

    You have, once again, convinced me to buy something else. You should be a salesperson. Imagine the commission you’d earn…

    For once, I’m passing up the pink version for the charcoal gray – trust me, this never happens, I’m a pink-loving girly-girl at heart! – BUT, the charcoal is so perfect! I really love it. If only I had an extra thousand laying around, I would totally buy it right now! 😉

      Hannah: I know, if only we had that spare thousand lying around! I do love that charcoal gray too – it’s so perfect in every aspect! =]

    i do like the shapes, but i must say, i’m not a big fan of the sheen or crinkle of the leather, personal preference..

    i do love the tote though! my next bag was going to have a simliar color scheme! we’ll discuss that soon :]

    • 23 March 2009 10:55 pm

      Michelle: That was the one con about the bags; I’m not too fond of crinkled leather either! But it does kind of remind me of the Balenciaga City Bags. So I kind of grown used to them. Perhaps grown to love it (on certain bags only?). And yes! we must discuss soon! Miss you lots, darling!

    The Tutu double zip bags in vibrant pink & charcoal are just gorgeous! Who knows, you may get both after all 😉

    Very covetable indeed!

  8. 24 March 2009 12:13 am

    your blog is amazing!
    I love the gray one, and I’ve been looking for a great grey bag to go with my colourful winter coat…now if only that bag could be in my price range!

  9. 24 March 2009 12:19 am

    mmm yes, i especially like that last one. that color combination looks incredible!

  10. 24 March 2009 4:03 am

    Wow!! The colour of the first is so intense and I adore it!! I am addicted to bags, these are beautiful!

  11. 24 March 2009 4:16 am

    Those are to die for. I am in serious need of a new bag. Spring is here, which means bike riding! Of course it also means a shoulder sling type bag to replace my purse. Ah spring…

  12. 24 March 2009 4:33 am

    I love the charcoal one! The pink is nice to, but I think I´m to boring to pull it off 😛 I always seem to choose black over color!

  13. 24 March 2009 6:34 am

    These bags are quite wonderful! Wait out for them to be featured on Gilt or Ideeli and you can score one!

  14. 24 March 2009 9:56 am

    oh my, what gorgeous bags, my weakness! i love the grey one 🙂

    I love the last one and I agree Luphia. MY WEAKNESS. I’m a bag and shoes fan. (esp.)

    Hi there-oh yes, these are fabulous-I’m so loving it in the grey and fuschia, fab picks my dear!

  17. 24 March 2009 11:53 am

    Oh yes, that fuchsia bag is STUNNING! The problem with price tags like that is that I would rather keep my lovely bag in a climate controlled glass case than wear it around and risk staining/scuffing/dropping/losing it like I am so apt to do.

  18. 24 March 2009 12:05 pm

    The gray one seems to be the favorite, it is for me as well.
    Looks like you’re feeling a bit better today, eh? Good. You should still try to rest as much as you can for a few more days (that’s just the mom in me).

    Thanks! And nice purses!

  20. 24 March 2009 3:04 pm

    I think the 3 of them are simple awesome.

  21. 24 March 2009 3:46 pm

    I love those bags!(particularly the fuschia and charcoal bags).

    Fab post;)

    Amazing bags, totally ballet-y !
    As for my ‘notes’, actually it’s just for fashion trends but I have so much fun doing this… maybe I should extend it to other matters xD.

    Thanks for the visit, you’re always a darling !

  23. 24 March 2009 4:20 pm

    I love that last one! SO chic!

  24. 24 March 2009 4:28 pm

    I love the charcoal version, but yes, completely agree with you… the vibrant fuschia is wicked gorgeous! xxx

  25. 24 March 2009 5:44 pm

    I LOVE the black bag! Very, very much. I love the fuchsia as well, but if I were to purchase one I would opt for the black because I would get much more use out of it. However, both would be nice =]

    Fuschia Fuschia Fuschia Fuschia Fuschia…
    What is it about this damn colour? (:

    How does it catch my eye and hook my heart and trip me up into needing it so badly? I don’t know. I look at the random pink things I have and I realise despite my monochrome staples and preferences for grey…there is something completely irresistable about that colour.

    Which makes that bag look incredibly juicy, vivacious and an addition to my basic must-haves. You pick the best things, my dear! 🙂

    I will try and obtain some videos soon and when I do, I will upload them and you will be first to know. 🙂

    (I am enjoying playing around with my names, it seems. :p)

    • 24 March 2009 9:29 pm

      Haha I love what you did with your name. You shall be SEAH!ui from here on forth!

      And I know; what is it about fuschia? It’s brightness? Ability to turn heads and be obnoxious? Or the fact that it’s a grown up version of pretty, pastel, Barbie pink? We shall never know. And it surprised me as well that despite my leanings towards black and grays (I swear we must be twins), I still have this penchant for fuschia.

      And thank you! You are the sweetest!

      *Bisous bisous*

    Gosh that second bag is so gorgeous! x

  32. 24 March 2009 10:43 pm

    i am so in love with these gryson bags. that tote looks simply delicious!

  33. 25 March 2009 8:46 am

    I DIE. That fuschia bag will be in my dreams tonight.

  34. 25 March 2009 4:58 pm

    I just would love if you would vote for your favourite. Better if you vote for me. 🙂

    I love the first one in bright pink! It’s great!

  36. 29 March 2009 12:53 am

    those bags are amazing, but i can’t decide between the grey and pink (as my fav, not as my purchase..i wish)! bold bags are such a great trend right now, i wish i had an extra thousand dollars lying around…..
