I thought this would be an interesting/enlightening discussion. There seems to be a diehard group of collectors for Balenciaga handbags which helps to support its resale price. IMO, that is directly linked to the same identical style being produced yearly in different colors and leather textures. I have now become an addict. And an extremely happy addict. Question One: Why do you think that Balenciaga handbags hold their value? Question Two: Are there other handbags out there that hold their values like Balenciaga? Here is one that I have noticed - the now retired Stephen Sprouse Graffiti line for Louis Vuitton. I don't have any, but I would love to have a speedy in graffiti.
