wait, i'm confused...

the bag that paris hilton has (the white one) i've seen called the boston. the bag ale and papillon posted looks different, more rectangular...is that the blondie? i did a google search for both, and the pics i found were of the same bag (like paris')

now i really want one too!!

Brian, they had this bag on Bluefly a few weeks ago, 30 or 40% off (the white one paris is carrying). I also own it, I got it from Saks during its current season. I fell in love with it, when I saw Lohan carrying one last fall. I can't believe you're just now seeing it...and on the Simple Life of all places!!

But it is lovely, and fun to carry. Very summery.

don't know about the names, but the bowling bag looks like a completely different bag from Alejandro's/the lady in Bazaar (whose bag is in fact clearly purple). I'm 99% sure the bowling bag is the boston. in any case, they're impossible to find (lucky Alejandro!). and the SAs at Gucci are useless.

Yes, I believe meeyowsa is completely right. The bowler with the domed top is the boston, where the more horizontal-tote shaped one is the blondie. What makes the name thing so difficult is that neither of these bags look anything like what a boston bag should. Which ever one actually has that name, it is still a total misnomer.

It looks purple to me too. And yes, the Gucci SA's are useless. Half of the time, I know more about the collections than they do.

Oops, I apologize Brian for starting a new thread.

Thanks everyone for the comments, guess I will give up on even trying to find the bag. I know that I'll only become more disappointed if I started to make phone calls.

Congrats Alejandro & Mkonowitch on your gorgeous Gucci's! I'm so jealous.

i just got back from the gucci store in sf and here's what the SA told me:

the boston is the bowling shaped bag (like paris') and this season it came in green leather and green with the green/red webbing

the blondie is the one in the pic (the purple one) and the one that mkonowitch and ale have...that one isn't being made now.

the SA I spoke with in SF last month had not one clue what I was talking about when I asked about this bag. the SA at another store told me the boston is only available in the black with pink plaque and green with green plaque -- no mention of a green with the racing stripe. whatever.

well she showed me a catalog or something with pics from last year. when I asked to see the bostons, she brought them up from the stockroom, so i don't know...i believed her....

i didn't ask her what other colors the boston came in; she just told me what they had in stock.

This one is called Boston as well. Gets the SA's really confused. :p





I wouldn't give up on finding the white one if you really want it. Like I said, they had it at the outlet for a short period. I wouldn't be surprised if one popped up on Yoox.
