Thread: Women's bags

    Thanks Faust! Very sweet of you to check. That tan bag sounds really nice. Sigh. I am assuming that all IF's bags are extremely expensive? I've never even bothered to check the prices...
    </p>

    So, the small version of the Margiela bag is about 12 X 14. I will probably stalk it a bit longer before I take the plunge, but it seems perfect.</p>

    Goethe, how are you finding your bag?

    Yea,
    they are pretty expensive. :-( There has got to be
    something in the middle, dammit!!! The only more or less good
    bags with palatable prices I&#39;ve seen so far are Jas MB (and the
    palatable prices are in the UK, because it&#39;s a London brand).
    There has got to be more that we don&#39;t know about, dammit!</p>

    Faust, it appears that Coop carries JAS MB--most prices are below $500. Not bad.</p>

    I love the last one, I&#39;ve seen it in person.</p>

    Stopped by the Margiela store, they had almost nothing as far as the bags. Apparenlty they do REALLY well. A second boutique is not out of the question, from what I was told. That&#39;s pretty incredible. Maybe people do really want just well-made clothes that are well made, well fitting, and just a tad interesting, as Johnny pointed out. I mean, everyone and their mother carries Margiela in NYC, and it does well.

    Thanks for the report! That&#39;s good news about the Margiela store--at least something good is doing well here.
    </p>

    So, I went to Butter yesterday for the first time. They had a gorgeous Beguelin bag, among other things. I was very impressed with their entire inventory, but the prices!!!!! I was incredibly frustrated, because they had a number of items that would have been perfect for me, if I were able to justify $800 for a cardigan or $500 for a cotton blouse.</p>

    Have you been there, Faust? Does it seem unusually expensive to you?

    Sure, I&#39;ve been there. I bought my showpiece Ann boots there, and I gave them a very good client (a photo gallery owner and a big Ann admirer). It is a little more expensive than some other stores, but not by much. I like the store, and I am proud that something like that can grow in Brooklyn (pun intended). They don&#39;t have the economies of scale, I guess. I am actually constantly surprised by how little they are allowed to buy from the showrooms. They are opening a menswear store next season.</p>

    Prices are insane everywhere. People have way too much money!!! I do like their inventory as well, they tend to buy different pieces than many other stores. BTW, did they tell you about the outlet? It&#39;s around the corner and you could score some nice deals there.</p>

    An outlet?! [&lt;:o)] I had no idea--can you share the address?</p>

    You are rightfully proud, I think. I also thought their inventory was quite unusual, especially the Dries buy. Even their Marni pieces were atypical.</p>

    I suppose you are right about prices being high everywhere. Barney&#39;s mark-up is usually relatively decent, so they are always my point of comparison.</p>

    I&#39;m going to be holding out for sales....</p>

    Me too, between the falling $, inflation, and designer greed (don&#39;t know the proportions), I have been essentially priced out of the full price market in the past 3 years.</p>

    Barneys does keep everyone else honest, it is also my point of comparison! Example - that beautiful black Raf sweater with shawl collar is $580 in Barneys and $650 at Atelier (and like $900 in Japan).
    </p>

    The outlet is right around the corner from the store, on Bond St. It&#39;s really really cramped, I wouldn&#39;t go just for the outlet, but next time you go to Butter, worth checking out. They opened it during the summer when the main store was being renovated, and they were planning to keep it open. Make sure I don&#39;t send you on your way for nothing, and give them a call or email http://www.shopbutter.com/

    faust:
    her name is emily... petite girl with brown hair. they do have some great stuff there.

    laika:

    the margiela bag (the large black shopping bag) is in the mid $700 at joan shepp. i forget the exact price but i think its $760. not too bad for a quality margiela piece! plus, it fits everything!
    the jas bags are a really good option if you dont want to spend toooo much money on a bag. they are reasonably priced and hold up well! also, they are relatively simple, which i assume is what you were looking for! just beware because some of them have little fake diamonds on the handels which make them look a bit tacky. other than that, they are great! good luck finding something!

    I really like this shape, you can make the bag instantly twice as small, depending on what you are carrying. CP? has done it several times.</p>
