Yeah, Another Sporty Mainstream Designer Label!
Do we really need to lose the quality of manufacture in their bags, to be exposed to more "designer end" badly produced wear?
They are being shepherded, like all accessories brands, to reap the supposed financial benefits of brand awareness, does it really work?

i sort of feel like they had to do something though...
cause even thought those ugly (imo) bags are VERY popular...
once you have sold one to everyone who could possibly want one...
you have to have something else to offer them or you go out of business...

they tried the 'collaborations'...like with artist tracy emin..?
i don't know how successful they were...especially outside of europe..

curious about the designer/team as well...
