Re: Quiz - Name that designer bag

ok, I think it is clear that I changed too many diapers. How ashamed of myself I should be, as a designer myself, to score a 5/10....

I guess is because I don't give a toss anymore....

Re: Quiz - Name that designer bag

I'd actually prefer to not score well on this test, as I never got into or quite understood the "designer" thing. I always felt that going around flashing a Gucci handbag (for example) was the equivalent of saying: "Hey! Look who I made even richer because I bought a bag for a ridiculous amount of money just because it has their name/label on it."

I totally agree, yet I seem to only date women with bags that cost more than a 1st class flight back to Canada.

Not necessarily. Yes, sometimes this is true, here in Zürich specially visible on the fugly Louis Vuitton bags (including the even fuglier fake ones).

But I do have to confess, usually, though not necessarily always, a good designer piece, though expensive, lasts much longer than a regular cheap thing. It last because material is better (or they have the policy of changing the piece if material turns out to be poor) and it lasts because, when you have the eye and the luck, you can pick a piece that won't go out of fashion and end up using it for the last 12 years, like I just realized when I look at my current shirt (OMG IT'S THAT OLD! *takes it off and flashes the whole office*)...

Same thing with designer bags: some people pick it up because you can show off how much money you spent on it, some buy because they preffer to have only one bag in the really small wardrobe, knowing it's something you can really wear anytime.

(though some of those bags were really really fugly. I'm still looking at you LV!)

I was standing at Paradeplatz earlier in the summer waiting for a tram, watching two bright young things cooing over their identical handbags (insert designer handbag - I have no idea what they were apart from them both being turquoise).

I guess that's the point when it goes from cool status symbol to symbol of a tragically shallow existence showing more money than sense.
