gosh, goyard

After seeing Yed’s reveal of his latest acquisition – a Goyard laptop sleeve in deep blue, and a flurry of Goyard apparitions on the net the last hour, my interest was piqued.

And all that I needed to know about Goyard I learned in a few slides from Authentecite’s Flickr account.

I’m sure you know that the dots on Goyard’s goods are painstakingly hand painted by its French craftsmen. Hard labor as Authentecite puts it!


I’m sure you know that on this particular bag – the Croisiere 45 – the leather handles can be adjusted according to preference. Great detail when you need to sling the bag over your shoulder.


I’m sure you know that the Chevron pattern is Goyard’s signature stamp on its stable of cases, trunks, luggages and handbags.

Now who wouldn’t fall for details like these? Gosh. I want me some Goyard!

    I’ve been wanting to get a Goyard Ambassade for the longest time but after reading about what Cecile and Ricky went through with theirs (http://chuvaness.livejournal.com/458085.html) I lost my love for it.

    Sure they are gracious enough to fix their products free of charge but I don’t think it’s worth the hassle.

      Yeah, I’ve read about those too but those are more the exception rather than the rule, no? Did I tell you some on the leather piping of my Damier Graphite Ieoh peeled after some days too? Nothing serious, but still…

        yikes! did you send it back? i haven’t had that problem with mine.

          Nope, I didn’t bother. I just covered it up with a black marker.

            speaking of quality issues…i just noticed today that my tadao strap stitches are having loose threads…grrr…before that, my bequia is also at the lv hospital currently undergoing some stitching too by the buckle…

            and you know, knock on wood, my croisiere is holding out quite well. i would assume, dennis of authentecite’s piece also. to think i have used it at paris with rains and the hottest of the hot at penang/kl two years ago…

            well, my tod’s leather strap has started to peel while the stitching as well on the strap is loosing threads too…if i have this fixed, i will have to wait 6 months to a year! yikes…

            but going back to the topic, go go goyard! haha. i am definitely a fan…:)

        yeah, but it’s quite bothersome if you get the “exception”.

        No brand is immune to defective products. Some Birkins from Hermès get them, too. But the Goyard ones are just, I don’t know, more frequent? Icky? :-)

    if im not mistaken, the Goyard canvas is screen printed by hand. i don’t think they painted the dots one by one. i don’t mind Goyard, but im not in a hurry to get one for myself. but if you really like it, GOyard!

    I’m still numb over my new Goyard… will come back and make a proper comment later…

    The ideal accessory to finish off this Goyard look would be a Tartan Blazer. It would go down a treat during fashion week, I am still awaiting to see models wearing tartan shoe and jacket combos.
