^Yay nycmom! Glad I could help. That messenger is adorable. Especially with the chain strap!

I don't like the "it bag" craze either. I have no problem paying for a beautiful, timeless bag, but the idea of spending $1500 + a season on a trendy bag makes me cringe. But if you love it, more power to you.

As much as I enjoy "it" bags, I just can't bring myself to buy one. I'd rather spend my money on a classic bag that I'll keep for a long time. Now if someone else wants to buy me an "it" bag...well, that's a different story

Looking for independent London based designers..
I got tired of the mass produced luxury goods after seeing lines of people have either the balenciaga or the louis vuitton speedy... which I craved awhile ago..

Obviously, they have to be on websites hahaha. Since I'm from across the pond..

Anyone?

i think if you like an 'it' bag you should get it and use it as much as you want .. even if it's not 'it' anymore and even if you see alot of people carrying it .. the only thing that makes me hate 'it' bags is the fakes .. fake bags really kills the joy of buying an expensive bag imo.

Not sure if anyone is interested but Charlotte Vasberg, a London bag designer does some v. interesting ones:











All pics from blow.co.uk (Her PR rep is Blow PR)

I know Selfridges used to stock her designs but I think now Harvey Nichols do. I'm sure there are smaller boutiques that stock her as well. Prices aren't cheap but the quality of the leather is superb - supple and v. soft!

OK I don't like 'it' bags and to me the luella and the spy and the motorcycle are just plain ugly especially when you see them for the millionth time. However, having just been through all the links there is not one bag I love, let alone has me lusting like the Mulberry Phoebe in Oak. It is not to do with Mulberry, it is to do with the fact that it is the most beautiful leather and walks the fine line between slouchy and ladylike (I don't like either).

Most of the bags posted here are as ugly as the Balenciaga motorcyle. Susie those Vasberg bags you just posted are not for me either. They look like someone was gutted and left their skin behind in a heap! I do like the Toast Sidecar in goldust (no 14) that Greendrv posted the links too. Still it is too gimicky -not a bag that would last a lifetime.

Oh I just remembered I quite liked this Be&D (But in a different colour)


I also like the ghurka 'barrington' bag.

You come here and slag off every 'It-bag' as ugly.

And then you post a Be&D bag?

Ugly dosen't even cover it.

Is that an it bag? Hardly. I have never even heard of them and most laymen wouldn't either. An it bag is recognised by all and sundry. Anyway what I said, if you'd read it, was whilst I dislike 'it' bags because of popularity, I love them for quality -there is no bag as beautiful as the Mulberry Phoebe and most bags in this thread are gross.

The thing is- there are so many people here, hwo like and own Spy's and Balenciaga's, etc. including myself.

Hwo are you too say that they are ugly? I just find it very rude of you, this is a board of different opinons you can be nicer than basically slagging off every it-bag out there, while you post something from Be&D, a nice bag.

But, I can understand where you are coing from when you say you are sick of the popularity.

But that's the most idiotic thing I ever heard. People on TFS 'slag off' (not a term I usually like to use ) my favourite designers, my favourite celebrities, my favourite food or whatever and I don't get insulted. They are called opinions. I personally find it rude that you've launched this little attack on no provocation.

ESPECIALLY as I was defending 'It' bags.

This thread was started because people didn't see the point of 'it' bags and I was saying how popularity isn't something to aspire to, but if a bag is better made and the quality can't be matched then that is fine. I think that of the Mulberry Phoebe even though I don't own it.

I am not only sick of the popularity, I am sick of the price tag. I find it obscene to spend so much money on a handbag. I just think it is wrong and I am within my rights to think that.
