Many faces of Sofia

  1. Hello, all.

    Sofia has quickly becomes my fave bag. However, I notice that there are several types of Sofia, and I thought it may be useful to list down everything just to keep track.

    The first or earlier version is Sofia with double closure: a zipper and gancio closure at the flap. This type is lined with tectile, I think?

    My Sofias are the second generation Sofia : without zipper and lined in leather. It is also more sttuvtured compRedbto the first generation.

    Then for 2017, I thought they updated the Sofia with braided handle now. Everything else looks almost the same with my Sofia.

    And then there is Soft Sofia (Susana in US?). The flap looks curved instead of straight like other Sofias.

    I will try to find photos tomorrow. Which type is your Sofia, btw?
     
  2. Sorry wrong thread
     
  3. I have a first generation Sofia in python. And yes, you are correct, it's textile lining. IMG_1807.jpg

  4. @Venessa84 wow it's a beauty! the workmanship must be excellent to make python in houndstooth pattern like that.

    mine are all the new version with leather lining.

    and now they have soft sofia (or also known as suzanna!)

  5. Hmm, I thought mine was the second generation, but mine has both leather lining, a zipper and gancio closure. There is also the zip pocket in the rear, with 2 slip pockets. And then behind the gancio there is another slip pocket.

    It is stiffer than the first gen. I think they changed it quickly the year after I picked up my bag.

  6. Thank you!! Yes, they put a lot of care into making this bag. It's still one of my favorites.
     
  7. I just ran across the Ferragamo Spring ad campaign and fell in love with this bag! The new Soft Sofia (also called Suzanna on some websites) is gorgeous! I think it debuted in the Pre-Spring collection.

    I saw it today and the leather is velvety--I love, love, love it! Especially in the Yuta (nude shade) color with gold hardware--first picture:

  8. Oh I LOVEEEE soft sofia. the organization inside also looks better than sofia (more pockets etc). however the velvety leather was marked with nail marks on the three displYed in Galleries Lafayette, so I dont know how durable they are.

    If anyone has soft sofia, pls chip in.

  9. I know what you mean about the leather--the ones I saw also had scratches too! I wonder if the scratches can be buffed out.

    I think I am going to buy it anyway though. I love, love, love it!
