The question is: how are you going to answer? Burberry is the latest (and perhaps greatest?) to jump on the PVC-bag trend. Since they can’t be the first, they have been sure to take it up a notch with metallic-python trim…But does that warrant an almost-$4,000 price tag (after tax) for a plastic bag?!
It looks like candy, especially in grape, lemon-drop, and candy-apple, but granted, there are lots of luxe details. A python-covered lock (it’s farmed python from Asia) is a pure delight, and so are two cute matchy-matchy interior purses. But I just can’t justify this price! Now it may look proportional from runway shots, though keep in mind: 17″ x 8″ is a very large-sized satchel. Without optional shoulder straps, the Blaze will be hard to carry off if you’re not a six-foot-tall glamazon.
I have the Delvaux PVC bag and love it, but I’d thought $750 was an outrage for a jelly bag…until today. Little did I know, it would seem like a bargain after LFW! I do love the drool-inducing candy colors of the Burberry Blaze bags, but I’d leave them on the runway. What about you, would you shell out the 4K for this bag?
