As per title, Or have you purchased less expensive bags lately despite your luxury collection? If yes, which bag is it and why? I would love to hear your thoughts!
I agree!I only have a few luxury bags, but yes, I still buy Coach, Dooney, etc. Once in a blue moon, I even buy sub-contemporary bags like Guess and Calvin Klein. My pockets aren't deep enough to only buy luxury bags. And there are some things I'd rather do at lower price points. I have some trouble pairing colored bags with outfits. I can experiment with color at $300 rather than $3000, thankyouverymuch.
I think luxury is great and fun, but I don't think the move to luxury negates the value of contemporary bags. There are some functions that contemporary bags and even sub-contemporary bags are just better at.
I totally agree! Sometimes the contemporary bags offer fun options which luxury items don't or, even if they offer a fun option it's prohibitively expensive for me.I still buy Furla, Kate Spade, and Tory Burch bags.
Lately I just bought:
1. Furla piper mini dome satchel in malachite
2. Kate spade ivy drive small loryn in dusty peony
3. Tory Burch buckle brilliant tote in kir royale
Their qualities are amazing and the colors are so pretty. If I'm just running errands or go to the mall near my neighborhood, I can just grab this bag comfortably. Sometimes those designer bags draw people's attention and you just don't want that all the time. So yeah, there are time when contemporary handbags are comfortable options.
Agree. I have a few premier brand shoes but I don't have the "bug" for them at all.Stopped completely but for shoes will buy contemporary only.
Proenza Schouler is a premier brand.I still have one Rebecca Minkoff, and my hubby got me Proenza Schouler crossbody this year. I like them as much as my lux bags.
