And when you think that you’ve seen it all, another rock will hit your face. Ouch! Is there a limitation in fashion? Perhaps it’s only in our mind, the Celine Summer 2016 Collection is everything but extraordinary – the Triangle Handbag, Sphere Heel Slingback Booties and oh well, now the Celine Soft Pouch Eyelet. Listen to what we’ve to share…

Obviously, as the name already revealed, it’s a pouch – a thing to carry on an evening date, or on a beautiful wedding, or when it’s all worn out and you’re tired of it, use it as a make-up box.

But the Celine Soft Pouch Eyelet handbag is a casual accessory, not something you would like to show up with snowy evening dress. I will meet you in a color-pop tee, maybe a pair of jeans or a summer skirt if you will – basically everything colorful.

It doesn’t come with a shoulder strap, sad! Maybe Celine thought: ‘it’s so soft, you don’t need it, just hold on the eyelet’. But in combination of their skilled craftsmanship, this unique bag will certainly help you draw some attention.

Available in four different colors: black/green, black/orange, white/black and blue/yellow, crafted from Nappa lambskin, it’s priced at €1400 euro’s.

Internet Causes Brand Fatigue for Handbag Companies

Other Brands

Many handbag retailers have been experiencing weak sales recently as consumers refuse to respond to “call-to-action” or take initiative to purchase new bags. So, why are handbag lovers unwilling to bite at even new styles? The problem is the overwhelming sense of ” same old, same old” in the seemingly “new” bags. In recent seasons, brands have experienced success by releasing the same silhouettes in different colors and keeping a consistent look, but this is no longer a working tactic. Consumers have grown weary of the monotony seen in recent bag trends and are no longer impressed with the status quo.

This dissatisfaction reflects a new direction in what consumers value in accessories. A few years ago, shoppers would stand in line forever to snag the latest “it” bag, shoe, or apparel just because of the hype, but the desire for the latest and greatest has significantly declined. As described by Robert Durke in a WWD article, there is now a sense of “consumer ennui towards fashion” as people seek practicality above a mark of status:

“Handbags have been a hot, call-to-action-type purchase, but now customers are looking for versatility and it’s resulted in very subtle trend and branding, which makes it less urgent to update your bag. What happens when retail is shaky is that customers go back and shop their closet and see what they have.”

With the shift towards the unidentifiable, “anti-it” bags , hot and popular handbags are not generating the same type of profit for companies anymore. Consumers are not only looking for more unique styles, but also longevity with the bags they already own.

The Technology Drawback

Even if shoppers do become intrigued by new styles, they often feel bored by new bags quickly because of overexposure and oversaturation. The internet and social media play huge factors in this boredom. Companies engage in huge media campaigns to create hype around their new accessories. Furthermore, lots of people showcase the same accessories on social media, and erode the novelty and freshness of new pieces. As quoted by Burke,

“Customers are looking at bags prior to delivery and are tired of it [by the time it gets to the store]. It tarnishes in some ways the impulse of a bag purchase.  Bags had a lot more longevity before the Internet. If you think of the Fendi Baguette bag, it had a very long run. The shelf life for bags today is extremely short because of their exposure online.”

I have personally experienced this phenomenon many times before. Instagram alone can visually satiate the appetite of hundreds of thousands at a single glance. Through instagram, we share one another’s experiences so vicariously, that it sometimes feels as though we have that “been there, done that” feeling without ever having made it to the store to actually see the bag. Recently on my search to find the perfect Boy Bag, I went back and forth about purchasing the highly sought after purple iridescent Boy from the Cruise collection. Although I can’t deny its beauty, I had seen it so many times and didn’t feel as compelled to purchase it in the end.

The question remains, how can companies respark interest?

The answer is newness, but this is easier said than done. Simply put, consumers are looking for something different, innovative, and personally stirring. One way to achieve this is with bag accessories, which allow consumers to add unique aspects to their bag without detracting from its true look and practical purpose. Fendi is a brand that has truly cornered this market. From brightly colored, novelty bags, to interchangeable straps, and giant, furry bag charms, the consumer has endless options to customize a bag to their preference. However, all the new possibilities to change the look for just one bag  keep consumers complacent with their collection. While the sales for bag accessories may rise, consumers still may not have the urge to update and buy a whole, new bag.

In order to generate more handbag sales, companies will need to find ways to extend the shelf life and overall appeal of their bags. This may mean focusing on design for some brands or maintaining exclusivity with less flashy advertisement for others. Even with action from the brands themselves, social media from mass consumers can still propel some bags into overexposed territory. With our media obsessed world, overexposure and saturation might always be a challenge. However, overcoming weak sales and obstacles will require companies first and foremost to listen to the consumer desire for real change.

Where do you stand –  has “bag fatigue” set in for you at some point? or are you still loving the latest trends?

Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Montana Replica Handbag Review

Louis Vuitton

The Monogram Vernis Montana is a LV that contradicts the LV classic handbags. It is different; it has color and a lot of personality. I have a lot of Louis Vuitton purses; I have to admit that I love them all. I always get a lot of compliments when I wear my LV bags so I decided to color myself a little bit with a new and beautiful handbag. This is the reason I chose the Monogram Vernis Montana.

The Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Montana replica bag is not a large size bag, it is very close to the size of a mini bowling bag but it is amazingly beautiful. The handles are very slim but sturdy enough to stand on their own. The bag also has a long shoulder leather strap that can be detached. The leather of these bags is gorgeous. It is glossy and feminine and it has these magnetic colors that literally take your breath.

The interior of the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Montana replica bag is very spacious for a little bag. It has a large zipper pocket to keeps the phone or the money in a safe place. The bag is closing with double zipper and with a padlock for more protection. It has shiny golden brass and patent calfskin trim. It stand on four protective gold bottom studs connected one with the other through a big stitched “x”.

I love the aspect of this Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Montana replica bag, it is a Louis Vuitton that looks different but shows the same personality and quality a Louis Vuitton does. It is an elegant handbag created for classy women. Even if it is not a bag to wear at work you can easily complete your outfit when your husband takes you out for dinner or when your friends need a girl’s night out. I’m sure you’ll turn all the heads around you.
