Designer handbags: Do you prefer limited edition or classic?

Here’s a little question for designer handbag lovers (and designer handbag curious too): do you prefer limited edition or vintage handbags? What do you think of the pros and cons of each?

(Yes, yes, partly this was inspired by this afternoon Breaksthat’s ah-ma-zing.)

I remember being in my 20s and being shocked when a friend – who I think is a fairly sane person – bought a Murakami x Vuitton bag. I just remember being so confused at the time because it felt like the kind of bag you only buy after owning a ton of vintage Vuitton bags, which have been around for years.

A few years later, I suddenly remembered when I bought an epi Alma bag in black leather – super classic… but boring. (It is still available at all Vuitton stores and online.)

I still love my Alma bag — and she still loves her Murakami bag — but they suit us in different ways. The Alma bag is the kind of person I think I should be; who I am trying to be. While the Murakami bag encapsulates a lot of the life joys I usually associate with my friends – it’s quirky, carefree, and a bit witty. As we get older, I may “fit” better into the Alma bag than I did in my 20s, but it really doesn’t. speak anything to me but reminding me of who I think I should be or will become. Let’s put it this way: I wore it to a funeral last year and it felt very fitting.

On the other hand, when my friend looks at her bag, I hope it encapsulates the cheerful, understanding attitude you need in your 20s, but frankly will serve you well for the rest of your life. .

So I’m curious: if you bought limited edition designer bags, which ones did you buy — and why? Are you a big fan of collaborators? Is there something about the LE bag that speaks to you in a way that other bags don’t? Do you feel the resale market is better for a limited edition bag? (Also, where are your favorite places to buy such bags?)
