Bent u Dolce en Gabbana of de Sak haak?

Last week I wrote about the crochet handbags, shoes and accessories from the brand De Sak. Some of the items that they make reminded me of the Dolce & Gabbana haak items that I’ve featured here on the blog in the post. I thought I’d do a roundup comparing some of the D&G crochet to some of The Sak crochet and then ask youwhich brand do you feel like is more your style?

The Granny Square Bag

The Little Black Bags

The Cross-Body in Neutral

Crochet Shoes

So Which is Which?

Everything that you see on the left here is Dolce and Gabbana crochet. Everything on the right is from The Sak.

Take the Poll

Opmerking: I tried to put an online poll in here and it doesn’t seem to be working so you can just leave comments below if you feel like it!

The Price

Would it change your answer at all if I told you that the average Dolce and Gabbana handbag costs more than $1500 whereas The Sak is priced under $100 per bag? The difference in shoe prices is comparable.

  1. I am so Dolce and Gabana!

  2. Except the granny squares bags (which I don’t like) I like the Sak’s stuff more that the D&G. With the price difference it is a no-brainer even if I didn’t like it more. :)

  3. The Sak is more my style.

  4. I like the Sak bags. Price aside I think they have cleaner lines and just have a more polished look. It happens sometimes when high designers imitate craft. They just can’t leave well enough alone, they have to make it look a little tacky so everyone will know it ishandmade”. I once had a weaver friend who did some work for a fashion designer, they wanted her to make mistakes on purpose. She didn’t like that at all.

  5. I have this love-hate relationship with the granny squareThe phrase conjures in my mind, visuals from my childhood in the 70s with burnt orange and avocado greenbut as a designer and crafter, I can appreciate the simplicity of execution but the complexity and broadness of the possibilities! Personal opinion: Handbags and shoes ALWAYS fitI prefer the simple, classic look of The Sak.

    • I’ve heard a lot of people say that about the granny square. I was born in 1980 myself so I don’t actually have those references from my own childhood and as a result the granny square in that sort of style feels very retro-cool to me. :)

  6. Okay so I am a D&G girl on a SAK budget! thank goodness I can crochet and make either!!! I had theoriginalSAK bag for years. You know the one n the add draped down the woman’s back.
