Top Handbags Brands- 1

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 MoΓ«t Hennessy β€’ 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. πŸ™‚

  1. awesum bags….me :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:
    Is der a particular trait for each brand ? like a particular design..coz I cud see in Louis Vuitton n Gucci..?

      1. Bhumika – Louis Vuitoon has its own signature leather print, im sure uve seen it on all the fakes that ulta LV sign ….. its an interesting story because LV came up with that print to avoid fakes and duplicates and to make their bags really distinct and the ulta happened … now everytime u see that leather u know its an LV and u can’t tell if its a fake or not …. LV is the most duplicated bag in the world ….

        I dunno any story but thats the signature gucci print as well … again very very obv on a whole lot of fakes you find on the street ….. you will find the same print on the bottle of Gucci’s envy me perfume that Ida reviewd yest – go see πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

        hope that helped :-* :-* :-*

  2. Really gud post Sanjeev :yes: :yes: :-)) :-)) !!Ddnt knw d story abt chanel logo!!Hmmm..I think u learnd pretty much abt handbangs πŸ˜€ ..Nw u can help Rati n selecting her hand bags na πŸ˜‰ !Lucky u Rati 😎 😎 πŸ˜‰ !! N oh oh,Dat Fendi bag reminded me of Samantha frm Sex and the city!! lol πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  3. Great idea for a post! Can’t wait for part 2!

    I personally rank Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs and Chanel as my top three. The other brands put out maybe 3 :sick: worthy bags for every 2 divine ones…

    And then so often buyers are swayed more by a brand name than aesthetics — perfect example the Hermes Birkin bag, which in my very humble opinion is quite an eyesore!

    I’d also be super grateful if you could share some Vegan/Vegetarian brands with us in your upcoming posts…I’ve been looking for something pretty and durable!

  4. Awesomeeeeeeeeeeeeeee bags..and such a droooolworthy awesome post :yes: :yes: :yes: !! :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: Me have always been a bag fanatic..and I love to carry bigggg bags, that holds some small small pouches or small small pockets for everything ..he he he….currently loving the collection I have from Marc Picard and Rene Lezard!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ ..Waiting eagerly for part 2!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. I am sooooooo much louuuing that Armani white bag..the first one!! :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: Staring..staring!! :dazed: :dazed: :dazed: :dazed: πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

  5. Donkeyji – your post does not have a Birkin !!!! :pain: :pain: :pain: :pain: :pain: :pain: :pain: Thats criminal !!!! Any reason ? …

    Devie you called the Birkin an eyesore :-(( :-(( :-(( :brokenheart: :brokenheart: :brokenheart: :brokenheart: me finds them very very classic looking …..

    Im an LV girl all the way except am not a big fan of their signature LV print …. and some of their runway lines tend to be beyond ugly but oh well i can still dream of my very own monogrammed speedy someday *sigh*

    1. Sorry J! I just can’t get myself to like it :((

      I find the LV print to look a little cheap too…IDK not a fan of overexposure
      But the worst in my opinion is the Fendi monogram! :sick:

      1. devie what are those ugly fruit shaped clutch type bags called … some fancy french ward … cannot remember … theres a really in demand one right now shaped like a babushka doll – i think u know what im talking abt na ….

        me hate the LV monogram except when they do it on patent leather and thats when it looks hot … I was doing this event management thingy for 2 weeks when I had to supervise a couple of stalls for a festival that were along the promenade … not basically there werent any bathrooms around at all !! ! So everytime I needed to pee I had to walk all the way (abt a km and a half) to the Taj Lands End …. so they have this massive LV display in their lobby so everyday I would spend ten min their lobby just staring at those bags ….. :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool:

      2. Hmmm… I think the point of these monograms on bags for those who are carrying them is a little bit of show off also. Some would like others to know that they are carrying a Louis Vuitton.

  6. All these higherrrrrrrr end brands :-/ :-/ can only make me droool and droool :drool: and feel like a dehydrated nomad standing in the middle of a desert, with mirage popping here and there 😐 😐 :-(( :-(( :weep: :weep: :wilt: :wilt: ….. The prices of these bags are like :X-P: :X-P: :X-P: :X-P: :X-P: I am planning to get one customized bag for myself soon :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: …Has anyone seen “Custom made with Vir Sanghvi”. :-)) :-)) Me planning to get a handbag for myself, with my name imprinteeeeeeeeed on it, from the place he got his Custom made suitcase!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    1. Haha they play Custom Made’s reruns on my NDTV Goodtimes…. I used to watch it before Mediagate…now I can’t stand Sanghvi

      P.S. I loved the luggage he got…you remember the name of the store?

      1. I think he got it designed from that too loouuuuuuuuuued that custom made suitcase he got..It was soooo classy and amazing..and had his signature on it…That was sooo cool!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Me will have to search for that lady….the designer…and then will get my hand bag done!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

          1. Arey..the best thing is that these custom made thingies are quite affordable. I mean that beautiful suitcase he got costed him around 12-13K …I was like 😯 😯 😯 😯 Wowww…such finishing and classy things can be found in market for at least 25K and here he is getting it custom made for himself…with his signature on it…and with his own choice of leather, prints, belts and buckles, even the metal and its color… 😐 😐 😐 😐 ….all done in 2-3 weeks by paying just 12-15 K….I was soooooooooo tempted to contact that lady the moment I saw this particular show!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ ..Now I am reminded of it again by this post..Have to find her and ask her for my very ownnnnnnnnn bag!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

            1. I want ! custom made bag right after i do the custom made shoes πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› I heard you get them at done at The Hilton/Oberoi Trident in Mumbai …. now just need to find the actual shop ……. grrrrrrrrrr

  7. BTW..where is Rati? :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ ..Its going to be 10:30 now..and no sign of her!! 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 Did she become toooo talliii yesterday night :X-P: :X-P: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: to wake up early? πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› Wah wah….

      Staying awake at night and reading vogue,
      It was only the pati who got talli,
      that too on Saturay you silly,
      but 10:30 am is a little too demanding,
      who wants to leave his his wife on a winter morning,
      when you get married you shall know,
      what a cosy chilly morning can do for your love. πŸ˜›

    1. 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 This is my story every day!! BF only keeps on making fun of me all the time….for instance these days he keeps on singing “Shiela ki jawaani – I am too fatty for you, main tere haath na aani”… Ooper se that Kat is looking so sizzling in this stupid song, that I can’t even ask him to stop singing this bakwaas thing. Just imagine how much would be my DQ (depression quotient)!! :-(( :-(( :-(( :-((

      1. Is the weather Cali…is all nice and cozy and good ..but boyfriends/hubbies tend to think ke we are fat and overweight…but we are just the clothes making us look fatter …. :secret: :secret: :secret: :secret: say yes its the clothes, please :secret: :secret: :secret:

        1. yeah..might be….I bought these new kurtis tomorrow from MAX!!… πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› just coz I had a fight with bf over my clothes. He was like “You keep these old clothes and gift it to your bahuuuuuu.” I cried, coz I wore some ages purana kurta I feel comfortable in and he wanted me to wear new new dresses, which dont fit me now…!! πŸ˜₯ πŸ˜₯ πŸ˜₯ … so I pulled him to buy me new clothes!! :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug:

    1. Same here!! :-X :-X ….This work has become so bogus and boring now… :-(( :-(( Nothing excites me about it apart 😐 😐 from that salary part now!! :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin:

      1. I put that MF blush like you told na…and me louuuuuuuuuuuu it..but me want MORE RED…. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ this is very subtle…hehehehheheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee….

  10. sanjeev…………..
    where is the famous hermes birkin………..??????????
    and such a tempting post for a branded handbag junkie like me……………..god send me some more money….

  11. lol donkeyji even shilpa is asking where is the Birkin ??? you CANNOT have a handbag post without the very iconic Birkin …. seriously !!!! I asked u pehle also no reply ….. abhi shilpa also said so am bugging u and asking again … Birkin kitthe hai ?

        1. Donkeyji do not do attyachaar and put Birkin in the same post as Guess !!!! Those bags should be in the same sentence – kahaaaan Hermes aur kahaaan Guess ….. not good Donkeyji your IIT skills are faling you big time :-(( :-(( :-(( :-(( :-((

  12. Heheheee…I can see Devie fuming at the “famous Hermes Birkin” but I do like the tan Birkin that Deepika carries around ALL THE TIME . I don’t know so much about bags and brands except this looks nice and that doesn’t….oh and I hate hate hate the monogrammed horrors from LV πŸ˜€

    1. I was saying just the same thing. I dont like LV bags. they so scream LV . I would feel like a chalta firta advertisement for LV if I carry it. :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X

      1. same here i would not only feel like a chalta firta advertisement id also fell like sucha a wannabe trying to shout out my status sheesh

        u know evn guess has some watches like these.. my bf got one for me… guess was written over the entire dial .. no number nothing!! sure it was pretty and all BUT —> it has to look like Im wearing a guess; and not that guess is wearing Me!

        nevertheless we went and exchanged for a more sublty placed guess label on another pretty watch πŸ˜‰

        it should enhance a wearers look and not overbear someone!

  13. Morning Rads !! You know I have to say hubbies n bfs lecture abt girls being fat and then go and get chubby chubby themselves πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

    That Birkin may be gorgeous or fugly but you cannot deny its place its place in Bag history …. me like deepika’s Birkin … I saw a couple of other Bollywood wives and actresses with them … definitely looked nice n chic to moi

    1. Bollywood actresses’ and Indian socialites obsession with that bag = Bappi Lahiri’s obsession with GOLD.

      Too much of a (supposed) good thing…not good!

        1. Somone must be carrying it for her after that πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Like I saw this Deepika piccy…she has a guy to carry her Birkin for her πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        2. You sure she didn’t mean that about boyfriends… πŸ˜›

          I guess Saif Ali Khan is in a lot of ways like a Birkin Bag…his perceived value is much more than what is received, he’s been carried on the arm of many B-town beauties and you don’t get the bang for your buck!

  14. woww……such informative post :-)) :-))
    Had no idea about the Chanel logo….thanx Sanjeev jee :yes: :yes:
    Fendi’s white and the red bag :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:
    And all Armani, DKNY and D&G one’s are awesome :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:
    I wish I could grab any one of them for myself…… :-(( :-(( :-((
    I am thinking…..if I start saving some money for one of it now….it will take me how many years to own one of it? 😯 😯 😯

  15. Ohhh….goooood morning everyone πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I kind of went ranting and grumbling and forgot the good morning….but me finding the morning much better now that I got to grumble some πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  16. And Rati went shopping to some nearby market yesterday….”claimed” she went shopping…all that she actually did was dress up and put on her makeup…EL gloss…and Chanel ka shadow…and go walking outside :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien: :alien:

      1. I was talking to her last evening,. Devie. I actually did that. πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› I was so bored at home so I got dressed up, did some makeup and went out for a walk to the nearby market. Actually it is quite a posh market and no one bothers you even if you just check out zillion stuff and buy nothing. :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle:

          1. Ohhhh….. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ :rainbow: :rainbow: :rainbow: :rainbow: :rainbow: :rainbow: :rainbow: :rainbow: :rainbow: okkkieeeessss…thankoooo

    1. :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: I bought nothing. Just roamed about, took some fresh air and came back It was feeling so happy after that. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: Ohh!! Little pleasures of life. πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›
