Thanks for the article. I would definitely rank Hermes above BV, if only for the fact that BV seems to be all over the place lately. You can buy BV on so many sites while Hermes bags aren't even sold on their own website.
Right or wrong, the exclusivity of Hermes gives it a more "luxurious" feel, IMHO.
I don't know why it has to be Hermes v. BV--they are different and each luxury bags in their own right. BV is my favorite brand but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the quality of Hermes.
I have several vintage BV's and they have aged beautifully. I just use normal care with them. I sold one on eBay and the feedback from the buyer was that the bag was in excellent condition! A 20+ yr old bag!
I enjoyed the article--thanks for finding it in the PF archives.
What I think is interesting about this article is that now BV has come out with "logo" bag for this season, and also a lot of lower priced bags . . .
Which logo bags that? Are you refering to the initial print (when your initials are enough) one? That was from the Resort collection, and I thought that was SOOOOOOOO cool!!!
I know there are the canvas bags, also from the Resort collection, which are prolly good entry points. But I think BV will always be known for their leather, so I'll hold out for a leather BV or naught.
I def want a BV bag, whereas I'm not into Hermes bags yet
