This is going to be a fun post. And the reason I am doing this post is to educate myself. I am ‘bag blind.’ When Rati told me once that a girl was carrying a ‘Louis Vuitton’ I thought she was talking about a watch or a jacket. Ever been in the company of a wine connoisseur who rattles off the names of spirits the way a Bihari villain lutaoes 1000 Rs notes on an item girl in a movie song? Remember how you felt then, trying to mumble something intelligent? I felt the same way when my wife talked about bags. So I decided to end my ignorance today. I have the true IITian spirit- when I want to know something, I research real good. So I found out that Louis Vuitton is owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy • Louis Vuitton S.A., the group which also owns Givenchy, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, Parfums Christian Dior, Tag Heuer, Guerlain, Sephora, and so many other brands. Phew! I also found out that the Chanel logo of interlocking double Cs was not what Coco Chanel originally came up with. The logo was given to her by the Chateau de Cremat in Nice. The logo is trademarked now, along with typeset mark CHANEL and Chanel No. 5 logo. So anyhow, here are the top handbag brands that I discovered, in no particular order, along with some REALLY tempting pics of handbags, selected by my wife ofcourse. You know, me being a bagbencher.
And if you really hated this post because all the bags look too good to be true please do not forget to tweet and disturb the sleeps of your friends as well. 😉
