    What do you guys think about Dooney & Bourke's "rainbow" collection?
    First I thought it was some very bad LV copies...I don't like them..

    I think it's really sad that when a semi-respected (though not entirely fashionable) brand like Dooney & Bourke pulls something like this. I mean, their bags are--not to offend anyone--rather unappealing. But the quality is first-rate and a lot of women swear by DB. This, in my eyes, makes them lose all credibility. Even if I was considering buying a Dooney, this would certainly change my mind.

    And that pastel pink logo heart charm! :shock: :sick: How gross! They are obviously trying to attract a younger market with this line as well as their recent ad campaigns but I wish they wouldn't stoop to this level.

    agh they're almost as horrible as the XOXO knockoffs. disappointing too...dooney & bourke stuff has always been good quality though not very stylish...while I wouldn't carry a bag of theirs, I have a pair of trainers from them that I love simply for their functionality and good craftmanship. but really, seeing this does, like chickonspeed said, take alway their credibility for being what they are. I can't look at a hideous bag like that and think well of the craftmanship and quality. :sick:

    the murakami seems to have opened an entire pandora's box full of evil knockoff handbags.

    I think I would like it more if we werent bombarded with wannabe LVs.

    But the majority of ppl out there would never think of it as a wannabe ;)

    I like DB, but these are cashing in on the Murakamis. I can't believe a classic company like DB would even bother. :angry:

    amen, craig B)

    They are cute purses, and I like D&B in general,
    but I am biased because of my outrage against Murakami fakes and spawns

    D&B should cash in on new creations, instead of riding on Murakamis coat tails :wacko:

    :heart: I am not trying to offend anyone, but I really like the Dooney and Bourke "The It Bag". It really does look like the LV models, but if you don't have LV money, you can't get one. I would rather have a real Dooney and Bourke, than a fake, wannabe LV. Everyone can't afford a LV, so I think Dooney and Bourke will make a killing off of it. Plus, this bag is tailored to the teens, however, I bought one and I LOVE IT! Yes, it is hard leather, BUT I think that makes it more durable and easier to care for; remember it is for teens!

    i dont think you could ever offend anyone with a contrary opinion... i can see them appealing to teens.... you are right! not everyone can afford a lv........ i personally would get something all together different.

    i saw a woman in starbucks, older mid 30's bad imitation and it made me feel bad for her.

    I agree with most everyone here. I love Dooney, but I am not happy with this style. :(

    Ditto. Even worse that they actually call this the "It" bag. But I agree, it will appeal to younger teens. How much is it anyway?

    After reading the comment about the purse feeling like hard plastic, I checked the texture of my other D&B and the purses feel the same. As written on the tag on the purse, "Our trademarks are here: weather-treated cotton and leather trim". ;)
