Do you still use your older treasures after you get new ones?

  1. Here's my question: I have a few LV epi leathers, a couple of great bottegas, Hayden Harnett and a Botkier - all fairly recent purchases. Are they going to become last years news soon or can I break them out again in future seasons? What do you do as your collection grows? Are there certain ones you feel hold up better (from a fashion standpoint) over time?
     
  2. every now and then i'll use my old ones. I'll need to see it to remember i own it though :P
     
  3. I always use my older bags. I don't care if they don't look exactly like the current crop of bags; but I do insist that they should have elements in common with current fashions and I'll only carry them if I feel they look right with the clothes and colours of the season (or the upcoming season). :yes:

    Sometimes I'll buy a bag, because I love it, even though it doesn't look right with any of the clothes I'm wearing that season. Even if I don't get around to carrying it much straight away, I don't care, because almost invariably, a year or two later, it looks perfect with everything! :biggrin:

    Actually, I think only wearing current season clothes and accessories (without any past season and/or vintage items) can look a touch unimaginative...


    ETA: Whoops! Forgot to answer your question about which bags hold up better (from a fashion standpoint) over time - I think it's wise to avoid the 'it' bags (unless you really love one, of course), as they will inevitably tend to look more obviously of a certain season, than a less known style.

    Although, if you pack them away and break them out again after 20 years, they will no doubt look perfect again! :biggrin:
