Asprey is noticeably missing from the handbag section..why is that?
Isn't it hot commodity? Is it plain boring?

Love those bags, but definitely more appropriate for a mature woman.

Probably because they are really mature, but yet not overmarketed like LV and not as iconic as Hermes. The brand doesn't have much exposure outside of the UK, I think. They had this whole huge gala opening store party here in NYC, but I don't think it had the desired effect.

I don't think they are special enough - They don't really have their own identity

At the prices they are I would have though people would just buy Hermes?

As British brands go I prefer Mulberry, although they are not as luxurious at least there is something different about their style

WOW. I am looking at an Asprey alligator wallet in a beautiful chocolate brown color in my January issue of Bazaar... $2,600 and GORGEOUS.

i think i am more of a fan or kiera as their model than the bags themselves...nice, but too exspensive.

I really like Asprey, but they are fairly unknown in the states. Oddly enough, Ive seen some of those bags on the streets in NYC, namely the steamer stripe bag, and I was like "Is that Hermes?"

That first shopper is...Heaven...

The look is very Hermes though, not different enough.

I actually prefer their small leather goods to Hermes'. Their french wallet is much more practical than the Hemes Bearne because it has a snap closure instead of the Hermes 'H' buckle. I would love one in their signature purple croc, which is way cuter than the signature Hermes orange. I think the leathers of the two companies are comparable in quality - the only difference is the status that Hermes affords here in the states .

First, they are not marketed wideworld.
Second, they do not have a distinctive character, nobody would say "oh, that is an Asprey" as it happens with other makes, like Bottega Veneta.
Third, very expensive.
Fourth, not "trendy".
