Bags already for a long time are not just simple accessories. Designer purses have their characters, their stories and some have even developed legends. Even if you buy a mass production satchel it will tell more than you expect about you – whether you have just bought it spontaneously or for practical reasons or saved up money for month to get the designer purse.
Some purses are not only fashion, but also status and wealth symbols. There are “It Bags” like classic Kelly bag or Chanel 2.55, and then there are Balenciaga Motorcycle and Chloe Marcie purse appealing to young fashionistas throughout the world. These are quite expensive handbags, but girls go crazy trying to get the latest celebrity looks as seen on TV.
If we look back into history, then initially the handbags were carried by men – they needed a sack made of leather or something similar to carry the whatever was hunted home. The first women handbags in the traditional sense are seen in 15th century and they are more like small pockets of fabric or sacks for carrying cash, small and beautifully embroidered pouches. What is also interesting – women carried these pouches under the skirt. Only after introduction of more tight skirts, the pouches and purses became the visible accessories made of silk, satin or trimmed leather and canvas.
Designer bags are very popular with women because of their ability to mesh style, function, and class. Many celebrities today are usually spotted using a Tod’s handbag, which only proves its status as one of the leading designer bags today. Most designer bags are identifiable because of their distinctive logos, which are continually used throughout the designs. Examples of this would be the Louis Vuitton Speedy, Louis Vuitton Multicolore, Designer replica hobos and body bags, and many more. On the other hand, many popular handbags today bank on the material and form to establish a distinctive mark and style for themselves.
