    Y’all may already be aware, but something is wrong with the site when I try to view from my computer…

    • Passerine

      Also had a problem trying to view from Chrome, but it’s ok in Explorer. (??)

    • We’re updating some backend stuff–if any of you guys are still having problems, please let us know here and I will forward them on to the people who know more about computer code than I do!

    Wow this is a great article! Thank you for putting it together.

    Wow, that Chanel denim pouch is weak. Even the most devoted Chanel-fan would surely second guess given the other options on this list.

    • Loupdeloo

      My reaction exactly. A thousand-dollar denim pouch is . . . I don’t even know what. Mockery, really.

    • Jerri R

      It’s like they are cruelly teasing those who cannot readily afford their regular lineup

  • Elisha Pritchard

    I was absolutely certain I would have seen a Gucci Disco Bag on that list somewhere. That being said, the Swing Leather Mini Bag is lovely!

      Gucci’s Disco bag may be absent but there is a disco wannabe in the list in the form of the Anya Hindmarch bag

    • I love the Disco (and so does Megs), but since we include it often in other types of posts, I thought it might be nice to see something else from the brand. Of all the majors we checked, Gucci had the best selection of sub-$1,000 bags by far.

    What a great post. Haha the Bottega Veneta and Chanel bags were just like “F*ck you”. The Chloe Marcie is really cute – I’ve been thinking that since I spotted it in the recent James Bond movie. Product placement success!

    • Passerine

      Agree! Much as I love Bottega Veneta, nearly $1000 for a PVC bag?? (and more if you pay sales tax) No thanks. They shouldn’t even be offering a bag like that, it’s bad for brand reputation.

  • Sparky

    FYI: Gucci sale just started:

  • Sara

    Nice and attainable. Thanks

  • FashionableLena

    I like the Ferragamo and the Gucci.

  • Valextra might want to rename that bag, though.

    • Sara

      I just got that! Yes they should re-name it.

      There was an article on the New York Times about this exactly. People named after the Egyptian goddess.

    • Esi

      Hmmm might be a good idea. But then again I think of my friends who have that name. Should they also change their names?maybe change spelling I don’t know. Terrorists! Always messing it up for everyone

  • oui

    I’m eyeing Loewe’s Continental (800EUR)
    But can’t decide whether I should go for dark blue or pink

    And the snap button is worrying me some. I don’t know whether I’ll like it.

    Or maybe I’ll just go for the elephant and forever wonder how and where i’m going to use it. (890eur)

    • Oh these are all super cute! Loewe has some fun shades of pink.

      I wonder if the elephant is big enough to actually hold things…

      • oui

        Right? it said 20 cm, but i don’t know if it is trunk to tail or just the “feet”. My local Loewe doesn’t carry it at the moment, but it does expect shipment. Can’t wait to see it. :)

  • Marsha

    Ahhhh finally a Smythson on the list! I have that tote in hot pink and its lovely! (they have sales too) Got it for $500! but seriously to see all those tiny clutches and mini bags for almost $1000, no way.

  • Esi

    I think Gucci especially does really well with entry level bags.

  • Loupdeloo

    Some of these are great little bags, but on the whole this was kind of a depressing reminder of how NOT FAR $1000 goes in the world of designer bags!
