There are a lot of things in life that I don’t understand, but one in particular has been bothering me for the last two days. Why is the leather version of the Diane Von Furstenberg Marisa Large Shoulder Bag significantly less expensive than its denim counterpart?
When I stumbled upon this bag, I expected it to cost far more than the very reasonable $595 that the fine folks at DVF would like us to pay for it. Not only is it a large, functional bag made out of sumptuously soft (I’ve fondled it, so I feel comfortable using such purple language) leather, but I saw the $725 price tag for the denim version first and automatically assumed that the leather one would carry a price tag several hundred dollars steeper. Does anyone have any idea why the leather version is less expensive? (more…)
