I used to be scrolling by way of Instagram final week once I noticed probably the most lovely turquoise bag on a morning speak present host that I observe. After I zoomed in on the picture, I used to be pretty shocked once I realized her bag was from Tiffany and Co. Don’t get me fallacious, I’m a giant fan of Tiffany and Co. (does anybody ever NOT wish to see the little blue field when receiving a present?), however my data is fairly restricted relating to their purses and I’ve by no means seen one in individual. The designs are good and I’m such a sucker for the turquoise colour, however the price ticket is difficult to swallow. Don’t get me fallacious, I believe the luggage are positively priced pretty given the supplies, the truth that they’re made in Italy, and are available from a luxurious model resembling Tiffany and Co., however I nonetheless am undecided I might drop $1,500 on a Tiffany and Co. tote once I affiliate the model so deeply with jewellery. Frankly, I might fairly get one thing sparkly for my wrist. Seeing that beautiful bag on one among my favourite Instagram accounts simply may need modified my thoughts and has introduced Tiffany baggage onto my radar, particularly since Tiffany blue is one among my all-time favourite colours. Though admittedly it is going to be actually arduous for me to affiliate the model recognized for sensational jewellery with unbelievable purses. Is it simply me?
Simply once I was altering my tune on Tiffany and Co. baggage, I used to be perusing my regular websites for digicam baggage earlier this week (I nonetheless am on the hunt for the right one…), and my eye was immediately drawn to a fairly silver digicam bag embossed with “CHOO” on the aspect. I actually favored the design of the bag, however I need to confess that I had virtually forgotten that Jimmy Choo designs baggage for the reason that model is synonymous with fabulous sneakers. Then I remembered a time when the Jimmy Choo Ramona bag was an enormous it-bag (a decade in the past!). I all the time actually needed a Ramona bag again within the day, however alas it was by no means meant to be. For some time the momentum of Jimmy Choo purses was full steam forward, nevertheless it appears to have waned lately and the model hasn’t produced an it-bag for the reason that Ramona. I do know that Jimmy Choo is a luxurious model that sells sneakers, baggage, and fragrances, however I all the time are likely to affiliate them solely with sneakers. I’m nervous I’m being brief sighted right here and wish to open up my thoughts to the thought of Choo baggage, however the thoughts is a tough factor and I can not break the notion of Choo = shoe. Similar goes for an iconic model like Christian Louboutin, the grasp of luxurious sneakers. I’m not inclined to go looking Louboutin’s model for a purse, I am going to them to raise my shoe recreation. What can I say? I’m extra drawn to their heels. Possibly it can simply take the right design to vary my thoughts, nevertheless it hasn’t occurred but.
I totally acknowledge that almost all, if not all, of my favourite purse manufacturers don’t solely design purses but in addition promote sneakers, jewellery, clothes, and different varied merchandise. So why am I so internally conflicted by a shoe or jewellery firm designing a luxurious purse? If a model like Jimmy Choo makes prime quality crafted sneakers, it’s secure to imagine that they can even produce splendidly made baggage (and I like among the designs I’ve seen!). I’d by no means hesitate to buy a pair of Louis Vuitton or Gucci sneakers simply because these are my go-to manufacturers for purses, so I don’t perceive my very own hesitation. On the finish of the day, the manufacturers all fall into the luxurious market, so for that purpose, I believe I might have to present them an opportunity. That Tiffany and Co. blue tote may be the place I begin!
