Most luxury brands will happily show beautiful photos of their newest high collections on their own websites, photos that will make you want, want , WANT but what they rarely show you are the prices of those bags. Confusing, frustrating and annoying, in fact all that will be listed are the stockists. However despite this, brands like Goyard are still some of the most loved across the globe.
If you’ve never heard of Goyard it woudn’t be a surprise. It’s super secretive, very cagey
with details, yet it remains a firm favorite of the elite. Check it’s website but you’ll find no listing what-so-ever about it’s products. The luxury items are only found at a handful of locations around the world, so if you stumble across one when travelling you can be sure you are in a high end destination, so keep your eyes peeled for some celebs, there are sure to be a few around.
What is funny is that despite the secrecy and the difficulty of purchasing a Goyard, the St.
Louis Tote is one of the most recognizable bags in the world. It’s a lightweight functional
tote that can hold a ton or two.
More recently Goyard released a new style of bag, the Anjou, very similar but more
expensive! The difference is that although both bags are reversible (so that’s really 2 bags
for the price of one) the Anjou has one side Goyardine and one side is solid-colored leather, where as the St. Louis Totes are made out of Goyardine.
What is Goyardine you ask…..? It’s a colored textile made from cotton, linen and hemp and then coated for durability, which gives it a leather-like look.
Lastly all Goyard purchases can be personalized, these are all hand painted and can take up to 3-4 weeks. Prices start at $150. Not for the bag, just for a 6 letter personalization.
As you have reasoned out, Goyard tends to be THE exclusive handbag
Brand, the gem of gems, the Holly Graal of Luxury. Goyard cultivates mystery and
secrecy, as It prides itself to avoid promotion, advertising and e-commerce. The Brand
even refuses to grand interviews. Not to mention that its handbags’ pricetags are in full
adequation with its status, displaying prices as exclusive as the Bags themselves…
Luckily, it does not mean that you would never be able to get your hands on a Goyard
Anjou Tote. How? The answer is pretty simple, for a fraction of the price, you can
purchase a seven star true mirror replica of the real thing. And trust me, if you buy it from
the right e-store, no one would doubt it is no original.
Goyard or not Goyard, that will definitely not be the question!
