    I think Gucci and MCM are doing it right, there’s harmony in the entire design and relates to the entire collection. SDJ and LV Keepall ones look like they’re just stickers on very recognizable designs, which I know should be the effect behind patches in the first place but then the idea of patches is also to personalize something common but how do you achieve that when the designer already did the false personalization effect for you. It’s like a missed point of the whole thing. Hope that makes sense! :/

    I guess these are ok if you’re a well-off younger shopper AND you don’t care about resale value down the road. IMO, these bags will look dated quickly. I’m a Gucci fan, but I don’t think any of their recently released bags match the beauty and elegance of the Tian collection. As for the rest, a big no thanks. If I want a tarted-up bag like the ones shown here, I’ll buy something much cheaper and use a glue gun to stick on some of my vintage Girl Scout badges from the 1970s. At least they mean something!

    I don’t like novelty bags and patches make these bags too much like novelty bags to be appealing to me. I agree with the poster who said that they will look dated quickly. For me, spending more than $100 on a bag that looks like a Girl Scout project is too much and $4,595 is absolutely ridiculous. But for those who can spend that for a bag that they will not use next year, I say go for it and have fun with it.

    While I like these as a concept, I just don’t see them lasting. If you’ve got money to blow then go for it, but I wouldn’t bank on this look staying around and being worth it in the long run

    wow can the monogram on that MK duffel be ANY fuglier?!

    I don’t care for the patches at all, cheapens the look regardless of designer.

    That MCM is possibly the ugliest bag I have ever seen in my life.

    I agree with other posters— this is too trendy and will likely impact the re-sale value of the bag. That said, if you want to participate in the trend without shelling out too much money, French Connection has a patch bag that’s like $50 and looks just as good as the designer patch bags, if not better. My thoughts on trendy items, is buy a cheap version of etc trend and save my money for the classics that will survive any trend.
