Internet Causes Brand Fatigue for Handbag Companies

Categories:Other Brands

Many handbag retailers have been experiencing weak sales recently as consumers refuse to respond to “call-to-action” or take initiative to purchase new bags. So, why are handbag lovers unwilling to bite at even new styles? The problem is the overwhelming sense of ” same old, same old” in the seemingly “new” bags. In recent seasons, brands have experienced success by releasing the same silhouettes in different colors and keeping a consistent look, but this is no longer a working tactic. Consumers have grown weary of the monotony seen in recent bag trends and are no longer impressed with the status quo.

This dissatisfaction reflects a new direction in what consumers value in accessories. A few years ago, shoppers would stand in line forever to snag the latest “it” bag, shoe, or apparel just because of the hype, but the desire for the latest and greatest has significantly declined. As described by Robert Durke in a WWD article, there is now a sense of “consumer ennui towards fashion” as people seek practicality above a mark of status:

“Handbags have been a hot, call-to-action-type purchase, but now customers are looking for versatility and it’s resulted in very subtle trend and branding, which makes it less urgent to update your bag. What happens when retail is shaky is that customers go back and shop their closet and see what they have.”

With the shift towards the unidentifiable, “anti-it” bags , hot and popular handbags are not generating the same type of profit for companies anymore. Consumers are not only looking for more unique styles, but also longevity with the bags they already own.

The Technology Drawback

Even if shoppers do become intrigued by new styles, they often feel bored by new bags quickly because of overexposure and oversaturation. The internet and social media play huge factors in this boredom. Companies engage in huge media campaigns to create hype around their new accessories. Furthermore, lots of people showcase the same accessories on social media, and erode the novelty and freshness of new pieces. As quoted by Burke,

“Customers are looking at bags prior to delivery and are tired of it [by the time it gets to the store]. It tarnishes in some ways the impulse of a bag purchase.  Bags had a lot more longevity before the Internet. If you think of the Fendi Baguette bag, it had a very long run. The shelf life for bags today is extremely short because of their exposure online.”

I have personally experienced this phenomenon many times before. Instagram alone can visually satiate the appetite of hundreds of thousands at a single glance. Through instagram, we share one another’s experiences so vicariously, that it sometimes feels as though we have that “been there, done that” feeling without ever having made it to the store to actually see the bag. Recently on my search to find the perfect Boy Bag, I went back and forth about purchasing the highly sought after purple iridescent Boy from the Cruise collection. Although I can’t deny its beauty, I had seen it so many times and didn’t feel as compelled to purchase it in the end.

The question remains, how can companies respark interest?

The answer is newness, but this is easier said than done. Simply put, consumers are looking for something different, innovative, and personally stirring. One way to achieve this is with bag accessories, which allow consumers to add unique aspects to their bag without detracting from its true look and practical purpose. Fendi is a brand that has truly cornered this market. From brightly colored, novelty bags, to interchangeable straps, and giant, furry bag charms, the consumer has endless options to customize a bag to their preference. However, all the new possibilities to change the look for just one bag  keep consumers complacent with their collection. While the sales for bag accessories may rise, consumers still may not have the urge to update and buy a whole, new bag.

In order to generate more handbag sales, companies will need to find ways to extend the shelf life and overall appeal of their bags. This may mean focusing on design for some brands or maintaining exclusivity with less flashy advertisement for others. Even with action from the brands themselves, social media from mass consumers can still propel some bags into overexposed territory. With our media obsessed world, overexposure and saturation might always be a challenge. However, overcoming weak sales and obstacles will require companies first and foremost to listen to the consumer desire for real change.

Where do you stand –  has “bag fatigue” set in for you at some point? or are you still loving the latest trends?

Are Millennials Less Concerned About Handbag Brand Names?

Categories:Other Brands

by Maura Carlin

A new report says millennials are lagging… in bagging purses. A study by the NPD Group in partnership with Stylistics finds that although handbag sales increased by 5% since 2014 in the United States, purchases by the 18-34 year olds rose only 2 percent. Baby boomers are picking up the slack and treating themselves to top shelf brand, it seems. Perhaps even impulsively.

Millennials, on the other hand, treat purse adoption with the careful, detailed analytic approach usually reserved for automobiles, rather than clothing.  NPD Group characterized the “handbag purchase journey” as “complex, rational and emotional.” As stated on Fashionista.com: “the shopping task starts more than a month in advance among 41% of millennials, and 61% of them start browsing for choices online first before pulling the plug on a final purchase.” This group also is more concerned with quality, details and style than brand names. In other words, move over Chanel… here comesMansur Gavriel.

Color me cynical, but surely the availability (or lack thereof) of disposable income plays a role. Isn’t this the generation having trouble making a living wage upon completion of its education and confronting astronomical debt on student loans? I haven’t seen the NPD Group report and don’t know whether these factors were considered – or whether the shopping pattern is a change from when boomers were 18-34 years old.

High end brands offer an aspirational lifestyle/look. Isn’t that supposed to be something to look forward to as you age? If you care. In my early 20s (confession, I am not a millennial), I could neither afford nor imagine shelling out for a Chanel classic flap, even though I admired chic Coco style. By my early 30s, I lusted after a Chanel suit… but couldn’t justify it before having children (and not knowing how my figure would change).


Millennials, whom are defined as those ages 18-34 in 2015, now number 75.4 million, surpassing the 74.9 million Baby Boomers (ages 51-69). And Generation X (ages 35-50 in 2015) is projected to pass the Boomers in population by 2028. Is spending really ‘age’ related or strictly ‘disposable income’ related? L to R @swedishandstylish @upcloseandstylish @bycamelia

Do you think Millennials are more cautious and less brand conscious? Or do they just have less disposable income? Will this change as they age? Let’s discuss in the conversation on BopTalk.

Introducing the Brand New Bottega Veneta Bucket Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Bottega Veneta Bucket BagA sure fire way to make me feel like I’ve been doing this for a really long time, is realizing that my first Bottega Veneta bag I bought after I started PurseBlog was in 2007 on a trip to Venice, Italy. Another way to realize we’ve grown a lot is checking out the pictures we took of that bag – those few pics were taken by Vlad and I think we can all agree his photography has also evolved quite a bit!

When I started PurseBlog, I really started delving into handbags and researching brands to learn more. I immediately fell for Bottega Veneta and the brands beautifully made products. I loved the meticulous attention to detail, the intrecciato and the beyond divine leather that’s used. I’ve been a part of not one but two special orders (here and here) and always had a very special place in my heart for the brand.

I think it’s easy to sometimes get lured away from the classics into the what’s new and trendy, but I never want to forget Bottega Veneta. A couple weeks ago, Bottega Veneta launched a new shape for the house, the Bottega Veneta Bucket Bag. Tomas Maier designed this bag with intrecciato nappa leather which is finished with smooth leather drawstrings with metal loops and chain. The bag is rather slender though the interior has plenty of space with smartphone and zip pockets and is lined in suede. Just like most bags that I love, this bag comes with an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap along with the double handles which allows for cross-body or over the shoulder wear. The Bucket Bag is available in Nero (black), Pacific (deep blue), Vesuvio (orange), and Peony (pink).The price on this bag is really reasonable especially for the quality that Bottega Veneta provides – $3,550 via Bottega Veneta and the Madison Avenue Bottega Veneta store.
