We always get asked about the most common care mistakes that luxury bag owners make. However, there are three things you should never do with your bag. Never EVER, under any circumstances, put your bag on the floor. One of the obvious reasons is the ground has dirt and bacteria that can transfer on to your bag. The dirt from the ground can stain your bag and transfer on to your clothes. If you are a chronic bag on the floor, you have two options: get your back cleaned at a bag spa and then purchase a bag hook to never put it back on the ground. In some superstitions, if you put your bag on the ground it means a loss of money (we don’t love that). Overstuffing your bag You do not need to carry a laptop, a […]

See how our authenticity experts determined that this Gucci Soho Disco was fake!
What on earth is a ‘Hermès gang’? We had the same question after we read headlines earlier last month about a group of individuals who were criminally charged for illegally selling authentic Hermès handbags. The Birkin and Kelly Resale Scheme A group of 10 individuals began to recruit fake Hermès buyers from acting schools; the actors were instructed to dress in expensive luxury clothing and visit their local Hermès store to create a customer profile, with the objective of purchasing a handbag. Once the actors were able to purchase a Hermès handbag, the gang provided them with the funds to complete the purchase, and allegedly also compensated them for their participation in the scheme. It is estimated that each bag was purchased for an approximate price of $8,000. The gang ran this operation for over four years, and purchased close to half of the Hermès handbag supply. On average, it has been reported that they generated close to a million […]
