    Torcendo para Hermès, Chanel, Bottega Veneta e Gucci! Love this post!!!

  • I can’t believe Balenciaga is loosing to Louis Vuitton :(

    • heyyeh

      I love Balenciaga but the way I see it is that Louis Vuitton’s overall handbag range is far more appealing and broad. I will say that that is an unfair match up though, very contemporary vs classic/standard style?

  • kindled

    haha I was very much in the majority on everything I voted on (although a couple like fendi/rebecca minkoff & gucci/alexander wang are ones I don’t really have a strong opinion on).

  • Kate

    Where is Cloé? And is Miu Miu included in Prada? Who selected these brands?

  • Fortune

    PREDICTION : Hermes WILL BE THE WINNER!!! I just received my hand painted Birkin look at the video I made of it on Intstagram @ fortuneattie

  • Winn

    you forgot Mulberry!

    • eileen

      exactly what i was thinking!!

  • Silversun

    Hehe, I particularly enjoy the thematic LV vs Bal match-up. Am v surprised at the Givenchy vs Celine results to date, I’d thought it would be fairly even but it’s not the case at the moment.

  • Silversun

    Hmm. I just realised that you can vote twice by clicking on each entrant to each match up. Is this supposed to happen? And it means you see distorted results because it only makes sense when you combine the two for each match up.

    • It’s a technical quirk with the type of polling we used and how our developers set things up – the two polls will be added together to get the final winner for each matchup.

  • Katie

    Hermes, Wang, Saint Laurent, PS, Celine, Fendi, Balenciaga, Prada

  • GMM

    H, Celine, Gucci, Fendi, Chanel, LV, PS, BV

    Some of these matchups are pretty one-sided – poor bags never stood a chance!

    Surprised at the number of people picking Prada over BV though.

    Would also have liked to see how Moynat, VBH, and Loewe stack up against some of these brands.

  • intan

    i voted, and i chose hermes, gucci, chanel, coach, prada, lv, fendi and givenchy! I chose what i own, except for givency and hermes. i dont own valentino and celine too.

  • T

    Hermes, Gucci, Saint Laurent, Proenza Schouler, Givenchy, Fendi, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta.

  • Gabriel

    You forgot THE ROW!

  • Bag Lady

    Valentino, Alexander Wang,Chanel,Proenza Schouler,Givenchy,Fendi,Balenciaga,Bottega Veneta

  • I feel as though the bags should’ve been matched up differently, maybe on similar price ranges/demographics (i.e. Hermes vs. Celine, Coach vs. Rebecca Minkoff) Also, left vs. right should’ve been old school brands vs. emerging brands (Check out jezebels march madness series…) Anyway I’m pretty sure Hermes will win above all.

    • In traditional March Madness, teams are seeded unevenly; the highest-ranked team is matched with the lowest-ranked team for the first round, and so on. It didn’t seem entirely fair to do it that way, and it also didn’t seem entirely fair to match like with like – we’re still sorting feeling out the best way to structure something like this!

    • Wanted to add to what Amanda said that this is our first time doing this, but we appreciate the suggestions and will definitely take them into consideration for the future! There will be plenty more brackets to come :)

  • chie

    voted chanel because its timeless and saint laurent as it is elegant

  • No Goyard? What about us :(

    • buffy2121

      i agree !! wheres the goyards!

  • Rae

    My picks are: Hermes, Gucci, Chanel, Proenza Schouler, Givenchy, Fendi, LV, and Prada

  • Gacats

    This was fun, can’t wait to see who the final 2 are!

  • LyndaB

    I just know I want them ALL!


    Putting Coach against Proenza Schouler is like Florida vs, Albany. Not a good match!

    • Well, Florida/Albany turned out to be a better match than one might have thought.

      (I went to Georgia, I couldn’t NOT say something about that.)

  • JJ

    Celine, balenciaga, proenza , LV, saintlaurent and I’m not seeing mulberry here!

  • Crabfries

    Love this!!!

  • pmrla

    Hermes, Alexander Wang, Chanel, Proenza, Celine, Rebecca Minkoff, Louis Vuitton, Prada

  • Alexis Consigns

    A very poorly matched face-off. Results will be highly skewed and not accurate. Re-match!

  • Andy

    No Mulberry ??

  • Bag Lady

    How about Moynat, Goyard, the Row or Delvaux?

  • Patty

    Relax people, it’s just for fun.

  • ElainePG

    Super-clever, Megs & Vlad (I’m guessing it was you two). Great that you made it interactive, and that after I vote I can go back multiple times to check stats (without re-voting)… elegant design. Can’t wait to see who it comes down to in the Final Four! Shall we create mascots for our faves? The Prada Pandas?

    • Really glad you like this Elaine! It was something Amanda brought to our attention last year and we weren’t able to make it happen in time, but it was a priority for this year!

      • ElainePG

        In that case, kudos to Amanda, too! Oh, and I forwarded the bracket to The Hubster so he could vote too… he likes underdogs & has a soft spot for Rebecca Minkoff, LOL!

  • Drspock7

    How do we get to the final four….or to the final results?

    • We will tally winners from this first round and then they move on and so on, final four will happen in about a week!

  • Martyp

    Where’s Dior?!?!

  • Darlene Santos Mikolasko

    That was fun! Thanks!

  • Tamara Bennett

    balenciaga vs LV. That was a hard decision for me…I want them both to move to the next round.

  • tdodge

    Sounds like we need a “selection sunday” vote next year!

  • tdodge

    I also think a winner for the entire year is too broad. Maybe spring 2014?

    • It’s just a winner for this bracket – we will have more brackets to come, everyone seems to love it!

  • Chyulee

    Hermes Gucci Chanel Coach Celine Fendi Balenciaga BottegaVeneta

  • june

    coach is in…….????? what you are thinking

    • Scottsdale Kim

      Look at all of the Coach pop up ads on the Purse Blog. More of a Michael Kors fan at that price point – love the Miranda.

  • caliprincess

    No Chloe :-(

    • Konjo

      Yea! what about Chloe? :(

  • marimusing

    Such fun!

  • Livo

    Hermes, Gucci, Chanel, Proenza, Givenchy, Fendi, Balenciaga, Prada.

  • James

    Crazy that what I the chosen am popular side…

  • annette

    I don’t consider Alexander Wang a handbag brand… Apperal comes first to that design house, unlike a coach or LV. I would have included Kate Spade, as that brand started with handbags before growing to apparel.

  • TexasST

    I love this! So fun for the handbag obsessed!!!

  • Rebecca Chan

    I’m so confused, did my vote count?

    • Vlad Dusil

      Click on the brand to vote on the poll in the popup!

  • Paola

    Chanel Chanel Chanel!!!!! And then Givenchy, Celine, Proenza. Love Hermes, But being realistic, it’s prices are too much.

  • whizcheng

    I voted for gucci. Just cos i was sure hermes was going to win. Giving some support to the underdog

  • watchesandmore

    Am I missing MK?

    • I’m not.

      • jenjen1964

        I am, great bags at a great price, what is not to love???

    Round 2: Hermes, Chanel, Fendi, & LV

  • Amy

    Finally a March Madness just for me. So sad Bal & Rebecca Minkoff were already defeated.

  • Sandra

    I think it is fun and some of the people are taking this way to seriously! Thanks for the distraction for those of us not really into college basketball.

  • juice

    hermes chanel fendi prada…

  • weaslgrl

    I’m shocked that Bottega Veneta got bumped in the first round (and by Prada — really?). I was looking forward to agonizing over an Hermes/BV final match-up. Oh well, maybe next time.

  • missarewa

    Give me Gucci, Chanel, LV and Fendi all day every day!

  • bagbabe

    I Have a feeling CHANEL will be the winner there is a bit more of a following, But I’m hoping Celine Beats it! :)

  • John

    This was super fun, Megs and Amanda! I usually play this out in my head when I’m bored while waiting in a long line or I’m stuck in traffic. Helps pass time! :D

    Maybe for the next one you can go bigger, have 64 “players” based on current popular handbags? :)

  • firstclasscoach

    Coach won the votes by a landslide in their matchup, but Proenza Schouler advanced? Am I missing something?

  • firstclasscoach

    same with Givenchy?

  • Abbi

    i think the final battle will be between LV and Hermes

  • Where is Dior?????

  • hi

    i think there’s a mistake… how did LV advance when Balenciaga clearly has more votes? I’ve just checked that LV has total votes of 1184, while Balenciaga has total votes of 1475.

    • hi

      oops, my bad just calculated the votes and LV actually won

  • Cuckoo-Boo

    I predict the final will be Chanel vs LV

  • Mya

    This is soooooo much fun!!!!! Way to go PB!

  • fuchsiafury

    And we’re left with the French luxury houses in the Final Four. How did the Italian houses all lose in the Regionals (quarterfinals)?

    I was rooting for Prada. But, as the French would say, “tant pis” :)

  • Catherine

    This went too quickly. Let’s do this agIn sometime.

  • Casey

    I think for next time, it would be cool to match up bags instead of brands. For example, PS1 versus City. I’m sure it would come down to a Chanel flap or a Birkin so it would be interesting to not include those and see what else people like.

  • LOVED THIS! Next year you guys should make it a full 32 brands. Although I wish there were more upsets. The results were too predictable.

  • Bipasha B

    What a novel idea! I showed your “brackets” to my sports crazy sons and even they admitted it was an interesting idea. I enjoyed voting.

  • Allanah


  • Mya

    Chanel is soooooo obviously gonna win, whoop whoop! But I have to say, I was shocked Balenciaga lost out to LV; at the early stages of that round it looked like LV was losing. I guess even with the price hike and LV’s seemingly new direction, the LV fans are still very loyal.

  • James Pen

    No Victoria Beckham? :o

  • Jazzy

    I had alot of fun playing Purse March Madness!! You all did an outstanding job…Kudos!!
