I don't get Mulberry. It's so blah. Everyone has it and it's nothing special.
Miu Miu is gorgeous but the quality is not good. I wouldn't buy again.
Prada is ok, nice enough bags but quite plain. Good for everyday bags but quality is variable
Hermes, LV or Chanel. LV are famously durable and Hermes famously expensive.
I've never been wowed by a D&G bag.
I think the designer handbag brands with the most wow factor at the moment are Dior, Chanel or LV. If price is not an issue, get Hermes.
I would check out Purse Forum as there's some good advice there.
Yes, if you can afford it they are worth it - but do your homework when choosing a durable bag. Also goat skin tends to be v durable, whereas snake is less so. Snake would not last long. Lamb is also delicate. Go read about it.
Not necessarily. I brought one off eBay last month, and it was 100% genuine- proved by the receipt and I asked the seller to get something from the nearby store to verify its authenticity. I probably wouldn't risk it if the seller wasn't willing to do this though if im honest.
They usually are better quality than your average high street bag, but tbh the fact that China can mass produce fakes and 'experts' are sometimes required to tell the difference between the two says it all raelly.
If you have a lot of money you may as well, but if this is something you're saving up for, I'd just go with a higher end high street label, or buy something else.
