Is Anyone Else Over "It' Bags?
I have to ask - is anyone else completely over this whole "It" bag thing?

I used to subscribe to the latest bags, almost to the point of obession. I own a Chloe Paddington and a Dior Saddlebag. But it now seems that every man, woman, dog and cat has an "It" bag.

The breaking point came the other day when I saw a picture of a "paddington inspired" bag for $18 in Walmart.

I'm sick of this. I feel like rebelling. I am officially *over* It bags. I've just bought a beautiful (and classic) cream leather bag from Jigsaw for AUD$400 and I'm completely in love with it. But the bit I love the most is that it doesn't have a designer label on it and I can still be using it in two years time without feeling like a 'has been'

What do people think? Are we long overdue a backlash? Is the trend of owning an It bag coming to an end?

Discuss.

Hmmmm, I think it is difficult to generalize. There are bags which seem to remain it bags for long time, such as the Balenciaga. Maybe because it simply IS great design AND a very practical bag. I don't think I will ever get tired of that.
However a bag like the Paddington you mentioned is getting less popular (at least where I live), maybe because it is not very practical with the heavy padlock.
At the moment I don't feel there is any new bag, everybody around me (incl. myself) is dying to get. There is a slight interest in the Darel Charlotte bag, but, you don't see any of the it girls wearing it here in my area. In my opinion the design isn't significant enough.
Maybe there are simply so many gorgeous bags on the market, that there won't be a specific one dominating? Or because people simply have got enough of hunting and fighting for the same bag?

Yes, I'm really over it. Over priced, over designed, too heavy, too instantly recognisable, I don't like them. I'm liking bags such as Mulberrys mens range of satchels, vintage bags and I think its time to support new designers, rather than pouring yet more cash into the coffers of these (already moneyed) big design houses.

I'm over the pressure to have an "it" bag.

I'm sooo sick of the whole thing really lol Some of the 'it' bags are gorgeous but they're too everywhere. Seeing them on the arms of all the celebs every 5 seconds sorta ruins them for me.

I prefer a bag that is handy, nice looking and suits my style. Not every 'it bag' does that

Behold my breaking point...(taken from Bag Lady)

Walmart's Chloe Paddington & Fendi Spy Inspired Bags


Whilst we're talking inexpensive handbags, take a look at these two, dear US readers. Now, who can tell me which designers the folk at Walmart have been inspired by? I think the white satchel on the left is a bit too similar to the Chloe Paddington for my liking, but it is only $12, and the people at Fendi would be horrified to learn Walmart are stocking a Spy-inspired bag for just $8. Can anyone else smell a lawsuit waiting to happen?

Well, they are awfull, but it doesn't destroy my joy of the real thing that somebody is knocking it off.
Danish company Friis & Co constantly knock of designer bags, and sometimes I catch myself enjoying my own indignation when I see these really poor bags in some highstreet store. They are all made of plastic of course!
These photos comparing the real bags with the Friis bags, I have got from a Danish fashion forum (with permision from the girl who posted them).

Lady Muck, I don't care if the designer is famous (and rich) when I buy a bag. Remember it took several years for Ghesquiere to make the motorcycle break through.
