Boyy Bag Event + Special Discount Reminder

Monday, November 23, 2009

Last Wednesday, some lovely bloggers and I had an opportunity to visit the apartment/studio of Boyy Bag designer, Jesse Dorsey, and I was floored when I saw the bags in person! Check out the chewy leather on these bad Boyys (sorry-- couldn't resist the pun)...


The Slash style in a dark chocolate brown and a deep perfect red. Of course, I was immediately drawn to their trendiest, nearly sold out style, which can be worn as a clutch, shoulder bag and styled with the python flap showing or folded the other way and hidden. You can also wear it flat messenger bag style.


From left to right: Frank, Quincy and Loui. The Frank has a structured, elegant shape, but the leather is soft and slouchy. The perfect balance. I was sold on the Quincy style, which can be carried by its dark metallic chains or tied with an optional leather strap to create a hobo, to be carried on the shoulders. The Loui has a gentle classic satchel shape and discrete chain ornaments, which reminded me of a downtown take on the Hermes Birkin or Mulberry Bayswater.


The buttery Clyde tote with adjustable chain straps and a detachable pochette that snaps on and off in the front.



Lucien in limited edition python with chain straps. Too adorable in person.


Here's Emma from All In Your Innerspace modeling the python Lucien, which she immediately grabbed. It looks like such a fun bag for parties. Just enough to fit a small phone, lipstick, a credit card and spare change. Do check out her blog because she got some great shots of bags from the event.




Here's Lala from LalaNYC with the Loui. People were dying over this bag.


Me + my pal, Slash, with the python flap tucked under.


Me + Slash carried clutch-style, with the python flap out, ready for a night on the town!


Carrying Quincy hobo-style.


The leather is just that squishy.

Jesse of Boyy and Chrissy Rhee.

I fell in love with these bags online and was even more impressed when I saw them in person. You really can't ask for better quality for the price: squishy Italian leather that develops character and that signature slouch with age and custom-made hardware.

I'm still torn between the Slash and the Quincy. Which one's your favorite?

Overall, it was a nice, intimate event, and I'm glad some of my favorite bloggers got a peek at the bags in person. Thanks for hosting us, Jesse!

Special Discount Reminder: Boyy has generously offered to extend the trunkshow discount of 15% off online purchases and orders on their website for readers through Wednesday November 25th if you use the coupon code "dreamsequins.com." The discount will be a credit back to your card after purchase. Happy shopping!

Just looking at your fabulous pictures makes me wish Slash bag was here already - I can not wait until it arrives (-:

tina said...

I really REALLY want a Slash Calf, since I'm not really a python print-person...but QUESTION! Is the only opening to the bag at the zippers of the flap? Or is there an easier way into the bag? Does that make sense? I've never seen the way it opens up, so I'm a little wary of buying it sight unseen.

Thanks for your pics!!! So amazing.

nicole said...

wow love all the pictures, it's almost as if I was there! LOL I love that pic of you stroking the Quincy bag! I love the chain straps on them, I can see why you're torn. If you can't decide, choose based on what you're going to use the bag for the most. The Quincy is definitely an everyday bag because of it's size, it can hold a lot, whereas the Slash can't hold as much but come on, just look at it, it's gorgeous. It's such a unique bag! and that bag is ALL about the details, with the python print, to the envelope-like flap and the zippers and chain strap. It's very versatile too because you can wear it in 3 different ways! So yeah, that's me trying to help you decide, I don't think I did a very good job haha so... BUY BOTH! :D The Loui is nice too if you need more options lol

I'm awful, I know hahaha

Great post D!

Elizabeth Marie said...

@cindy: You're very lucky to get the last black one currently in stock! People will have to wait for black ones to be special ordered for this season.

@tina: I left you a comment on your blog, but just FYI, the top of the purse unzips like the sides of a triangle and then it folds over. And you can flap it around on the other side so the python or in your case-- calf side, doesn't show. Good luck with finding the calf-- not sure if it's sold out or what! xx

@nicole: Girl, now you're confusing me. I totally agree with your points, though. The Quincy is a nice everyday size and the Slash is just a beautiful flat size. Sigh.

@Liz: I could totally see you in a Slash. ;)

@Austere: Thanks for your visit! Clyde has this leather that's so silky soft, I want to sleep on it, like a pillow.

@Kristin: The little purse is so cute. I wish I had an excuse to buy me one of those :)

@Brigadeiro: The Loui is a beautiful shape. You would love the leather on it. Now I'm confused again...

1st of all: HAPPY BDAY! :)

2nd: why do we desire bags that much??? I keep trying to rationalize my love for them but I can't!!!

Jessica Druck said...

oh yeah, those are tantalizing bags. I'm a sucker for over the shoulder clutches? Is there a proper name!?!

Susan said...

wow, amazing bags!
have a lovely week, darling.

Why must you torture me with such stunning bags. Tell Boyy to make an amazing camera bag that doesn't look like a camera bag and then I'll be able to join the party.

After getting my muse 2, I'm all fun bag tapped out and need function!

My boyfriend and I were walking through Holt Renfrew when suddenly the Slash bag caught my eyes! We bought it right away along with a 25% discount the store was offering! I have been completely obsessed ever since. Love it and keep up with the good designs!!

Is the red slash you are carrying the color classique?
