It’s good to have goals. Healthy, even. I’m not sure if that applies to shopping goals, exactly, but many of us have them nonetheless. On our PurseForum, our members have taken to calling the ultimate bags of their dreams their “Holy Grails,” or HGs for short.
The scope of what constitutes a Holy Grail can vary widely. For some people, it’s the ultimate bag that they can realistically buy, and for others, it’s the ultimate bag, no matters its price or their personal likelihood of ever hoping to attain it. In both scenarios, rarity often plays a role; after all, conferring HG status on something readily available and within one’s price range seems beside the point. Why not just buy the bag, under those circumstances?
Despite the fact that I’m not usually one for logos (and Hermès is not usually a brand that uses them on bags), my version of the Holy Grail is an Hermès Constance Bag. It’s not necessarily the one above, although that one’s certainly nice; I’d be thrilled for normal black leather. It’s the Hermès bag that most consistently captures my attention, and while we’re picking fantasy bags, I figure I might as well swing for the fences.
Now we want to hear from you: what’s your Holy Grail bag, and how did you arrive at that bag for the title?
