The small boston bag is one of the items in the Rioni Signature Bag Collection. It is made from brown leather and is adorned with golden handles. The golden 'RR' emblem adds strong brand identity. It also comes with a detachable shoulder strap....more
I bought this style of purse over 5 years ago in its native italy, and although i don't carry it everyday it is still one of my favorite purses! Many people mistake it for a LV, and are always surprised when i tell them it's not. i am not a fashion maven by a long shot, but i do appreciate a sophisticated, yet functional purse.
what attracted me to this purse was its understated, classic styling and low-key branding. it is also unique. i see those obnoxious coach purses, with their giant C's, all over the place, but i have yet to come across someone sporting a rioni ;)
as one reviewer stated, that light leather will indeed deepen over time. mine is now a rich, caramel brown. every stitch is still in place. it is indeed roomy in the main compartment; it holds it shape well without being too boxy and stiff.
this sturdy bag has been with me on at least four big trips, one trans-atlantic voyage, and numerous weekend jaunts. it goes with everything and goes everywhere! even though i did not purchase it specifically from this site, i saw it and had to stop by and leave my thoughts! when was the last time you loved a purse that much, lol?
...I would have purchased two or more. What a pleasant surprise to unwrap this handbag and find it far surpassed my expections. The leather quality equals LV, Gucci and Coach plus it's about a fifth of the price of any of those high end Speedy or Boston style bags. My LV Speedy 30 does not have the suede-lined side pockets, outside rear pocket, cell phone and slider pocket. the Rioni Small Boston has, plus my more expensive bags of the same style do not have the little feet I've come to want on all my bags.The size is perfect for those who like a medium-sized bag. Don't let the listing "Small Boston Bag" fool you, it holds everything I carry with me on a daily basis and there is room to spare. Love the quality, finish and style. Thank you Rioni!
I have been lusting after an LV Speedy for a while. In case you are wondering, this bag is sort of in between a 25 and 30. I actually find the "small" bag to be able to hold the perfect amount of items. It is a very nice structured bag and although the RR logo is on it, it is not as obvious as some logos. It is very simple. The pockets on the outside of the bag are actually very usable and can fit my iPhone. I have this bag and the med size tote and get compliments on it when I walk into other purse boutiques. The leather is lovely and canvas is pretty thick. It is light to carry. It comes with a shoulder strap and dust bag, which IMO I wish all dust bags were like this. It is like an actual re-usable bag. I have never used the strap yet as I prefer to hold this shape in my hand, but the strap hangs out inside the bag. Overall the quality is most definately comparable to other higher end designer bags. You will be please with the quality of this bag. The only thing I do not care for is that Overstock sends you the bag in a plastic bag instead of in a box. Although, to be fair, the 1st one I received was damaged and I sent it back and they did send out another one right away and this one did come to me in a box. The quality is also 1st and not made for factory. Rioni is a very understated designer brand. They do not always have all the colors of this bag that I am looking for, but Overstock by far does have the best price around on these bags. :-)
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice quality.
I bought this purse after reading another review online, watching a you tube video that a customer did of the video, and after researching Rioni because I hadn't heard of them. This bag is awesome. It is the small Rioni bag, but it really has tons of space. I usually carry very large purses, and everything I have fit in this purse perfectly. The bag keeps its shape even when you don't stuff it. It is high quality leather, durable, and also comes with a strap to attach and carry it on your shoulder. Most designer bags are cute and durable, but don't have the pockets that we need for our cell, keys, business cards, change, etc. This bag is functional and sassy. It also has two magnetic pockets on the side. I like the bag so much that I will probably buy another Rioni purse next.
I ordered this purse for myself for my birthday. I haven't had people comment but they do stare. My 21 year old who owns lots of name brand purses - coach, jessica simpson, betsy johnson, lv, is quite jealous. It was really a steal for the price. The lining in the main body is nice and soft. In the pockets is a sueded lining. The brass fittings are quality. The leather is really starting to soften up and is really pretty. The picture is a little light when it comes to the leather trim, but the body of the purse is right on. It has an outer zipper pocket and and inner zipper pocket that are perfect in size. The two end pockets are for something really small like a key or credit card. It also comes with a shoulder strap which is a good length for me - I am 5'6''. I love this purse!! I can't wait to purchase another. It isn't a big purse, but I would definitely say it is a medium purse. I have a very large wallet, checkbook, several glasses, and an assortment of little junk I carry and still can throw a water bottle in there.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the body of the purse is a perfect match, the leather was darker and nicer looking.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of the purse is excellent. The stitching is well done, the brass fittings are quality. Everything about this purse is classy
How accurate was the sizing? It actually ended up bigger than I thought. It was perfect. It wasn't to big or to small. I have a large wallet and it fit perfect in it with room to spare.
the time i got this bag, i was so excited and nervous upon opening the plastic packaging. i never thought that it would be delivered with plastic packaging so i realize the reviews are true. anyways it comes in good conditon and it is very pretty so the reviews are true again, i always rely on good reviews to guide me what to purchase and that helps a lot. the bag it self is well made the gold hardware are stunning since i am a gold lover the smell of a real leather is intoxicating i cant help myself of staring on it, i even forgot to eat my lunch......oh yeah i was mesmerize the beauty of this bag. i highly recommend it.
My sister love her new Rioni Signature Boston Bag, she said that it not to big or to small.. She took her new bag to work and everyone
said were did u get that....She said it was a gift... my sister love her bag... thank you
This is my first Rioni handbag. I had been reading all the good reviews of this product and decided to treat myself to this bag. I would give this item 10 stars if I could. The bag weighs about 1 pound 8 ounces by itself and after putting all my stuff in the bag it weighed 3 pounds 14 ounces. However, the bag does not feel heavy at all. I was considering getting the large boston bag, because I was not sure all my daily stuff would fit in it. I am really glad I got the small bag. I am able to fit a large wallet, checkbook, notebook with calendar, keys, cell phone, cosmetic bag and I still have room. What a beautifully made handbag!! A detachable shoulder strap and a Rioni storage pouch were included. I would definitely recommend this bag.
My first Rioni purchase, and I love, love love it!! I was shocked by the quality materials used, the substantial feel of the handles, the leather trim and the same high quality coated canvas that's used in the higher end brands. The entire bag is NOT leather and it's not supposed to be. Just like the L* brand the trim is leather but the body is not. Nice interior fabric with a big zippered pocket + a phone pocket and another pocket. It has a zippered pocket on the back + the 2 size pockets w/magnetic closure on the sides. I do have the L* speedy 25 and I find I use this bag more now because of the 2 additional side pockets. I LOVE this bag. I am a petite woman and this is perfect. I also purchased the large boston bag for my sister and she loves it just as much!! We have both now drifted away from higher end designer brands. This bag is NOT trying to be an LV , it's just beautiful in it's own right and I don't think you can confuse it for the LV!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color is perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. great quality
I bought this purse as a birthday gift for my self. I ordered the purse and when it arrived it was cute but small...But I kept saying to myself I can make it work. Well little that I knew the next day I was reviewing and email and it said " Small signiture bag", so that explains why my bag is a small purse. I called customer service and told her that I needed to send the purse back and get the large since I ordred the wrong bag. She said sure no problem, and the larger bag was only a 10.00 difference. so I ordered the large bag when it came in 5-6 days later...I was dancing b/c the bag was large and I could place all my things in it.. The 1st day a lady was passing by with her shopping cart and stopped me as I was paying for my groceries and asked where did I get my bag from and that she just don't see great purses that look like mine at the stores. So needless to say I'm loving my bag. I love the side pockets to put my cell phone in for easy access. Fabulous bag!! Will buy again
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I love this bag because it is very well put together and I have gotten a lot of compliments already..
Where is this product made? I know it's designed by an Italian company but that may mean it's actually made in China. Please be more specific than "Imported".
