Doubly Good? Gucci vs. Zara

The two pockets separate 1,950 euros from each other. And still a little more. First of all the obvious facts: the original, the “Dionysus” of Gucci in taupe, costs 1,980 euros. The copy of Zara is only a mere 30 euro! Both bags are made of leather. The Zara model from “cow”, the Gucci model made of suede and smooth leather (no more details). While the lining at Gucci is also made of leather, you can get back to polyester at Zara. The jewelry details are at Zara from a non-defined metal, at Gucci from silver.

If you want to lend a gold medal, you seem to be clear. Because of the battle price (just under 30 euros) Zara has already bestowed this on itself:

And one more difference makes the two pocket models: the cloaking range. While the Zara is partially supplemented by a leather strap (not so much on the skin or clothing), the chain can easily be used as a chain of handles in the Gucci bag: The chain drawn through the rings is easy to double.

No, I don’t. And you can easily see this on the next picture, you could also simply expand the chain in the Zara bag: simply turn the toggle lock lengthwise. and was, you hold a clutch in your hand. The inner life is a matter of taste and of course a question of depth (10 cm at Gucci versus 5 cm at Zara):
