Chanel Purses – Brings The Big Bag Back Into Style

The modern age of this digital world has brought about a trend change in purses that is likely to continue. This trend change has to do with the size of the purses being purchased today. Not too long ago, many purse companies were creating larger bags so that patrons could store enormous amounts of personal belongings in their carry-on bags. The new trend that has emerged is to purchase smaller bags, sometimes with only enough room to carry if you credit cards and some change. Recently, a Chanel purse was created that has moved this trend toward a reemergence of the larger bags of yesteryear.

Not too long ago, it was an accepted fact that purses were designed to carry an assortment of items. Before the age of beepers and cell phones, women had less to carry in their bags when they went out for the day. But with the advancement of modern technology, beepers, cell phones, digital cameras, and even small computers are now in necessities that did not exist before.

It is because of the increasing amount of supplies that a person must have while venturing off on their daily routines that has made it necessary for the handbag to evolve. Not too long ago, a Chanel purse was introduced that broke the mold of the current fad of small purses available in almost every retail store in the world. Releasing their oversized handbag, Chanel put forth a seat and the start of a new trend that was catering to the advancement of modern technology and gave women a place to put all of the necessary gizmos that most of us need today.

Buying a Chanel purse may not be your first choice, but they were the pioneers just a few years ago of reintroducing the oversized handbag that you see many people carrying around today. By following the trends of modern society, this new Chanel purse has created a new fad which is being followed by other purse creators and vendors today.

Louis Vuitton Purses – The Ultimate Flattery Of The Purse Industry?

They say that being copied is the ultimate form of flattery. Images that come to mind are celebrities that are often mimicked at costume parties. Other things that are copied are designer clothes, most notably the Louis Vuitton purses. This trend of copying one of the most well-known handbag creators in the world has gotten out of hand. With only a small percentage of Louis Vuitton purses actually being authentic, this purse has truly become the ultimate definition of flattery.

Despite attempts of authentic purse dealers to ensure that their product is not copied by placing such things as emblems or serial numbers on their products, this has not stopped purse replicas from being created on a quantum scale, especially the last 10 years.

With the global reach of the Internet and such venues as online auctions, counterfeit purse makers are making a killing worldwide selling millions of purses for tens of millions of dollars each and every year.

Therefore, if you go to a flea market and find a Louis Vuitton purse, more than likely that purse is a counterfeit. Louis Vuitton states on their website that they do not sell factory seconds and they do not put their purses on sale. Therefore all excess Louis Vuitton stock is destroyed and cannot be found at discount retail shops.

If you’re looking for an authentic source for any kind of purse, the best place to go is a shopping mall or the authentic website of that company and order it directly from the source. If it does not matter to you that you have a replica, then buying any purse, with any emblem that you like, is probably okay for you. Louis Vuitton purses, if you have an authentic one, came from the source, and not a discount retail store.

Coach Purses – High End Purses, Or Not?

One of the most sought after purses in the world are from the name brand of Coach. Coach purses are made from what began as a family-owned business in Manhattan in the early 1940s. Even at that time, their purses were owned and flaunted by the rich and famous. They also created other leather goods such as wallets and belts

Even today, a Coach brand of leather products is still a very expensive items purchase being made of some of the finest high quality leather found in purses today. But the name brand does not matter to the consumer that purchases the purse. It is the appearance of the purse which matters the most.

Coach purses are said to last more than 10 years because of the quality of the leather which obtains a patina over age, as well as brass and steel rivets that create this magnificent product. Regardless of what creates the coach purse, the fans of this purse are still strong even today. With many other brands available of comparable value and price, celebrities will still include the coach purse as part of their ensemble when going out on the town or on a long trip.

One of the concerns when purchasing a coach purse is the authenticity of the purse itself. An easy guideline to follow is that any purse that you purchase at a flea market or at a discount store, is more than likely not be authentic purse that you thought it would be. If you are truly concerned about having an authentic purse, sometimes only the authorized dealerships are the best places to go

One could say that the niche that coach purses fall into is the category of the affordable luxury. They have a recognized brand that is priced high enough to be appreciated, but low enough so even the middle-class can purchase and claim that they also own a coach purse.

Whether or not you have a purse from a thrift shop, or a coach purse from unauthorized dealer, what is important is the image that the purse creates for you with the outfit that you happen to be wearing at that time. Most people will not stop and examine the emblem or serial number on your purse. Your self image is what is important, not the purse that you purchase.

Other aspects that differentiate that differentiate the Balenciaga purse from others are a unique zipper compartment with a mirror inside.

In today’s world, those that where the Balenciaga name brand are also among the rich and famous. Famous people such as Madonna and Lindsay Lohan purchase and flaunt their Balenciaga purses worldwide. One of the largest trends right now is the Balenciaga motorcycle back and caters to the rich and famous as well. The Italian leather, along with its many signature laces that trail and a detachable shoulder strap, make these purses one of the most sought after designer brands today.

One way to tell if you have an authentic Balenciaga purse is if it has the silver engraved identification plate and serial number on the purse itself. This may seem a little overboard, but it is part of the Balenciaga lineage for all of its purses to have unique and tailored identification to clearly show its authenticity and value.

Unfortunately, in today’s very interconnected world, such venues as online auctions allow copycat creators to make fake Balenciaga purses that also come complete with the silver tag and serial number. The best way to ensure that your purchase is authentic is to make sure that you purchase it from unauthorized Balenciaga purse dealer either online or at a store near you.
