The SA in LA told me that this Spring/Summer was the first time the MJ collection handbags have gone on sale in several years, just so you know. Everything except the handbags have had sales, in the past. She also said there would be an increase in prices on MJ bags, soon. I bought several bags and I'm very pleased with the quality of the materials, construction and details. MJ has stepped it up, for sure! I own bags from LV, Gucci, and Burberry and my MJ bags are just as sweet. I can't speak for anything prior to his 2013 collections, however.
