I'm looking into buying a smallish Ferragamo shoulder purse, mainly to use when I don't have to carry a lot of stuff. I was wondering about the quality, though... anybody have a Ferragamo that can attest to the quality?

Also, I noticed in the "purse hierarchy" thread, Ferragamo wasn't even mentioned, and there's no subforum specifically for Ferragamo... is it a brand that's considered non-designer?

Thanks for your response!

Wow, the bag you're eyeing is beautiful! You can't find it in the stores?

The bag I'm considering is really plain. It's just a simple, black rectangular shoulder bag with a magnetic snap closure. I like the fact that it's plain, and doesn't scream "Ferragamo". The only "Ferragamo" detail is the Ferragamo logo as hooks that connect the bag to the shoulder strap. It's seasonless, and I can see myself using it well into my old age, it's that classic (although some would call it "boring", but that's okay). :smile: I'll post a pic tomorrow, hopefully.

I:heart: Ferragamo. The bags, shoes, other accessories. So girly:love: . I have a vintage red bag that I rarely use because I want to keep it in good condition.

The Ferragamo Gancio replaced the Jimmy Choo Ramona as the bag I'm saving up for Xmas for.

I think it's beautiful, elegant, understated and not trendy. It's definitely a brand that is timeless. :yes:

...on the loose!
You CANNOT go wrong with Ferragamo. I have 3, am planning to get a 4th, and would love a whole closet full. They are so classy and are GREAT quality. One of my bags is vintage and it looks almost new. Another is a few years old and still looks mint. And I especially love that Ferragamo is trendy without being the latest "it" bag producer, meaning that there won't be fakes all over Manhattan!

Here's the one I've been eyeing... I like that it's plain, but has the discreet Ferragamo logo as the hooks between the body and the strap... see it? There is a flap that has a magnetic closure. It seems that the back looks the same as the front.

It's definitely structured and conservative, but imo it's a breath of fresh air among all the big, squishy bags out there these days... and it's small enough to put inside of a larger bag if needed. Your thoughts?

I like Ferragamo as well. There are tons of clean designs that don't scream Ferragamo as well as some of the crazy prints that are distinctly Ferragamo. You can't go wrong with a classic one like the black bag you're looking at.

I love Ferragamo. My last handbag purchase was a "Marisa" bag in black - I've been carrying it for two weeks and am absolutely in love with it!

Bloomingdale's has many Ferragamo bags for 30% right now. It was excluded from the private sale but I guess they decided to put some on sale after all.
