Me and my bags

I was 3 years old when I bought my first handbag. It was bright pink, had a top handle and lots of, lots of pearls. I loved it, and wore it everywhere – proudly showing of my latest purchase. As I grew older, my interest for bags grew and it became some sort of hobby. A passion. At 15 I invested in my first designer bag: A Louis Vuitton Speedy 30. Needless to say, I was even prouder. Especially since I had worked hours at the local café to be able to afford it. That, and the fact that my sister was insanely jealous, gave me utter satisfaction.

To date, I can still spend hours looking at bags. Silly, some might think – it’s just a bag. A piece of leather. On the contrary, I believe it so much more than that. It’s an investment. Now, I know that that sounds like it is taken out of shopaholics anonymous. However, what I mean by this is that a designer bag is more than just a status symbol : it’s about the craftsmanship. The quality. The exclusivity. Not to mention the history. Did you know that Louis Vuitton revolutionized travelling with his original trunks? To be very generalizing; Designer bags are to women, what luxury cars are to men. Then again, some people wouldn’t know a great bag if it smacked them in the face…

My point with this little speech is not only to share my fascination for bags, but also to share the extensive amount of work that actually goes into creating these leather luxuries.  Take a look!
