I'm new to PF and think everyone agrees that "logo" bags are walking advertisements. . however some of the desirable designers use certain designs/features on their bags? Balenciaga bags have the zip front pocket on a lot of their bags, Chanel, the distinctive quilted leather and double C , LV the coated canvas and we still buy those. well, not everyone of course.
Wow! Thank you for posting this! I could not BELIEVE the negativity people had against LV mono! TPF kind of ruined me on that, too. When I saw those bags BEFORE joining TPF, I never EVER had those kind of assumptions about people! But maybe that's because I don't judge someone by their bag... and lots of people here do. It's insane to me. I joined TPF because I love purses & wanted some education on different brands. Now I think I've had TOO much education, too much negative education.
I understand that everyone can have an opinion. Before TPF, I just thought that the LV monogram was a very nice, luxurious, classic bag. Now, I'm not sure what to think...
I think we need to remember that opinions expressed on bags/brands etc, are just that - opinions. Variety is the spice of life, and not everyone has the same tastes (I dislike rhubarb, it's over rated - but hey, that's just me !). My fellow LV lovers enjoy your bags and wear them with PRIDE ! !
Hermes -too expensive, but I love Kelly Chanel - too expensive. I am a collector - I don´t see myself with just one bag for many years, I always want more from one brand / style and I can´t afford that in the Chanel department so I better stay off Guess - too loud
I don´t think I will ever buy Balenciaga - I am more into old school style and structured bags like Alma.
I own and proudly wear one LV mono bag and I am thinking of buying a monogramed Gucci - although I am aware of all the negative thought around I still love these bags..
1. Gucci - mainly because where I live literally everyone at least has one gucci bag - fake or real. As long as it is gucci.
2. Furla - Esp their candy bags. Too heavy and a rubber bag for that price? No thanks. Bags other than the candy bags are just plain
3. Guess - I'm not aware that this is a designer brand? Anyways designer or not, their bags are too noisy and tacky
That's all for now. May add/change a little in the future.
