I know that sounds weird, but I was thinking about this when looking at people's collections. There seems to be a few schools of thought about bag collecting here: Whatever is most functional (e.g. goes with everything, most practical) Designer allegiance! "It bag" or "Latest It designer" collectors "Art" collectors/Quality collectors I would put myself in #4 -- I don't have one particular designer. I'm attracted to the style and the quality, and as a result, I'm all over the map with the makers of my bags. How about you all?
