They were all in the hype, but is that trend fading or will it last?
Trend-wise, it will probably fade and recycle (come back 10 years later).
Personally, I think it depends on the overall styling of the bag - I've seen some that look unbelievably cheap, even when they're more expensive, and I've seen some where the studs just add to the overall appeal of the bag.
I Love studs whether they are in or out. My Botkier and several of my Koobas are loaded with them. Thye might not be for everyone but they appeal to me.
I like studs, too, but I don't want my whole bag peppered with them.
my studs bag that i loves are mybalenciaga... they will last, at least for me...
I have an eggplant Bulga one with studs I still love. I agree, it depends on the shape of the bag and amount of studding. If it's used as an accent it ***may*** remain timeless but if it's overdone it'll scream trendy.
I think the stud phase is definitely fading, but I still love the look...as long as it's done in moderation.
I have a Celine Boogie with studs (but not the ones that stick out so it is not that in your face)
I just love this bag - but I am Celine Boogie fan (one of my very favourites...)
I like studs on a bag ... it, of course, depends on the design of the bag. I have several studded bags like my IF Audra and Rafe Rivington ... I still like them
Depends which, I love them on balanciaga. Kooba not so much.
I like them on casual bags. It took me awhile to warm up to them, though.
I like them. I have them on my Botkier skeleton.
I have them on my Kooba hobo (black with brass studs). I LOVE 'em!!
I like them but they can go oh so wrong.
