    *DROOL* at these bags AND your site’s new format!!! <3

    • Vlad Dusil

      We love the positive feedback as we were looking to make the user experience more pleasant! So thank you!

      • Hi, I absolutelly love new format of the site, just one thing, can not find search window. Is it gone or I’m just not seeing it?

      • Vlad Dusil

        Click the little search icon in the top right corner of the screen, that should open the search console!

  • c.Miller

    Loved the post & the commentary!

  • Guest

    I tend to like python and ostrich bags but I am not fond of alligator or crocodile.

  • Cara M

    Love the bags and love the new site. Just wanted to point out one thing that drives me nuts. When I hit the back button it takes me back one slide at at time, so in this case, I’d have it hit it 63 times to get to the home page. I know of course I can go straight to the home page, but I would prefer to be able to hit the back button only once or twice. Doesn’t seem very user friendly that it breaks it into 60 some “pages” when it all shows on one page. But that being said, I love the post, love the bags, love the site. :-)

    • Vlad Dusil

      Cara, we are addressing this “back button issue” today and should have a fix live later today! Thanks for your feedback.

  • Marnie

    The only bag I love in this list is: Ashley’s Constance, Kim’s Bottega shoulder, Florence’s Dolce, and Beyoncé’s Hermès. The rest, not impressed, specially the Ecclestone sisters, all they carry are Birkin’s. They maybe richer than God, but their style is boring and bland.

    Regarding Beyoncé not buying exotic bags for herself, she doesn’t have to. Several years ago, supposedly, her husband dropped 350k on Hermès bags for her. Nice.

    • Perhaps it’s because my family is not super traditional about gift-giving, but to me, the money’s still coming out of the same bank account(s). It’s a distinction that I don’t understand.

  • Stina Sias

    I don’t like any of these, but I have kind of a problem with exotics in general for the same reason I don’t wear fur- there’s so much cruelty involved in getting these skins :( That said, I don’t even get the aesthetic. But I love looking through these long collections :)

  • Pennydreadful

    This may well be one of the most incredible bag collection lists I’ve ever seen on PB. A million thanks. And as others have said, LOVE the new format on your site! You guys did a great job on the revamp.

    • Another Fad

      All fairly conservative…which surprised me…but certainly lovely classic handbags as well as “break the bank” crazy expensive…for most.

  • Kel1009

    Sorry if I’m just missing this, but what happened to the “view all” feature?? That is so much better than hitting the forward arrow multiple times. Is it gone or am I totally just not seeing it? TIA!

    • Vlad Dusil

      On your desktop the articles appear automatically all on one page already. On your mobile, you can swipe between the images to navigate.

      • sheila

        So you decided your visitors would be best served by making the site less user friendly?

  • sheila

    I’m wondering where the view all option went. It was a great part of your website.

  • Gianna

    i’m pretty sure Jay-Z’s backpack is Balenciaga. But I never saw one in snakeskin though…

  • W1202

    IMHO i prefer the “view all” feature. But this post is awesomeee!! Love it

  • Yrfdes Rfew

    It would of been usefull / interesting to put the actual colours like rouge vif , miel etc with the Birkins.

    • With how many colors Hermès makes and the vagaries of paparazzi photos and lighting, it would mostly just be our best guess even if we tried.

      • Yrfdes Rfew

        Well these are main colours that you have presented here – apart from the black , I can pick out VB miel croc birkin , rouge vif etc . If you work for a purse forum /purse blog and you know what you are talking/ writing about . you should be able to pick out most of the birkin colours by sight or have the journalistic knowledge / resources / skills to find out ? EG you could actually ask Hermes or you can reference your own purse forum reference thread for the colours maybe ?

  • Shang

    Regarding the Hermes So black Croc Kelly, the only other person I’ve seen with it is Jamie Chua.

  • “They’re all lizard, lizard, lizard! No canines were injured in the manufacturing of these bags. After all, we’re priceless, thank god!”

  • AV

    I like Gaga’s, that’s about it. (And she looks great too.) The rest look cheap despite the price. Hermes is ugly. I don’t get the appeal.

  • viennaprinzessin

    Who knew Marjorie Harvey had such the collection? Wow, Family Feud must pay well!

    • Guest

      He also has a talk show, radio show, several best selling books, and tours, so yep Steve is raking it in.

      • viennaprinzessin

        Wow, had no idea!

  • vintagemaven

    Beautiful bags, thanks for doing this. I don’t think all the snakeskins are actually python, which as the distinctive pattern we see in slides 3 and 14. Slides 17 and 25 could be cobra.

    • It seems as though even when brands use non-python snakeskin, they often call it python (or the retailer deems it python because consumers are familiar with it), so that muddies the waters for identification purposes a bit.

  • Olivia

    You guys should do a feature of Steve Harvey’s wife Majorie’s bags. She’s actually got quite some style!

    • I WISH our photo agency had more images of her on file. I’d love to see more of her bags. From what I can tell, she buys really special pieces from a very wide range of brands.

  • Anya

    Ashley’s croc fendi takes my breath away.

  • Mildred Ford

    I can really now see the difference b/w alligator and crocodile. Gotta give the Olsen twins credit. There bags are my favorite, especially the first blue one.

  • Kerri F

    Man oh man there are some snippy people in the comments. If you don’t like the blog – DON’T READ THE BLOG!!!!

  • Penny Wen

    It is nice bag collection from Louis Vuitton those Haute magoquinerie line, I just received my triangle croco bag yesterday, very happy about it

  • Penny Wen

    I just received my very dream bag, my triangle bag from Haute Maroquinerie collection….have to said I’m very much happy with the weight though….wasn’t as heavy as the birkin croco bag

  • Penny Wen

    Love the Haute Maroquinarie line as I just received my very own triangle personalized crocodile bag

  • Gloria Ortiz

    Pretty much all of them except for a few were mediocre-just because they are celebrities does not mean they are going to have unique tastes

  • h

    Moth of Maria Shrivers bags are fake. You can tell by the lack of the stamp identifying whether the bag is Porosus croc niloticus croc or alligator. The second you can tell from the texture.

    • Alexis Frost

      Ya I think so too. They look suspicious to me. Wonder why she bought replicas since she obviously can afford the real deal. Or were they given to her? Hmmm………

  • Phan

    I Don’t Know What All The Fuss Is About BUT The Website Works Just Fine. I Don’t Have Any Issues As Stated From Other Readers. Maybe You Guys Need To Get Better Phones/Computers?! Change Your Settings?

  • love this type of bags, im going to buy one like those!

  • Veit Bui

    BEST post to date. I’m visually diabetic from all these eye candy ˆ_ˆ
    I love exotic too…it just takes everything to the next level. You can’t just call it a Celine, Hermes, or Chanel; it’s a python Chanel, lizard Celine, or croc Hermes ^_^

  • mary

    for something rare such as the himalayan croc birkins, we sure see a lot of them

  • I know I’m blowing my own trumpet but you can definitely see the superiority of alligator as an exotic material. Interesting also that most of these bags are in matte. Shiny/glazed is a much more mature look-a bit like channeling Wallis Simpson! With the exception of Hermes, all of these bags are made in Italy.

  • Jess

    I dont know if this has already been mentioned but slide 31 has another blue birkin in the background! I’m quite happy paying for fake croc skin, would rather spend my money elsewhere than buy a real croc skin handbag.

  • Scottsdale Kim

    I dont know if Maria Shriver’s bags are real but the one looks like it could use a trip to the Hermes spa.

  • Another Fad

    Hermes Crocodile Birkin anyone?

  • Melissa

    I have a Nancy Gonzalez I’m selling for $1,200 if anyone is interested.
