This post is not intended for any one person or bag but to all bags that we have found to have some how crossed the poor quality line after being labeled a must have. This post is actually funny to me. I posted a thread a while ago asking why people dont give the newer designers a chance (like Shalon and Piero Guidi) who have quality bags (some made by the same manufacturers as Versace and Dolce and Gabanna). The responses I received were that "We do not want to get stuck with a piece of crap." Thats not the reason at all. Its only because they are not popular names. I asked why they keep buying the same old tired bags over and over just because of who made it. A lot of the new designers have quality products. It seems to me that these well known designers are beginning to take shortcuts and save a few bucks where quallity is concerned because they know you are going to buy it just to flaunt their name. I mean, come on, how many posts and threads have you seen complaining about how this popular designer is having his bags made in China now or this designer is using a lesser quality canvas now. Too many! Wake up people the designers know you are hooked to their names alone and will buy it just cause. It might as well read Kooba(or whoever) Crap Bag. You would still purchase them just because of who made it and some celeb toted it on their arm. Its funny how people can see a bag and think its nothing but the minute it makes a mag on a celebs arm its the almighty must have/It bag. Take a page from the celebs who find these designers first. They are obviously going out and looking for something different to carry on they arm. (when celebrity seeding is not involved) Thats how you were able to see it in a mag and label it must have in the first place, right. It takes someone elses originality and need to be different before you take notice. Okay I see how it works now.
