Is It Safe To Buy An Expensive Luxury Handbag Online?


In the past the only place we could buy an expensive luxury handbag was in the stores owned by the big fashion houses themselves or a store owned by one of their franchisees or maybe at a large city department store. And we all pay dearly for this and the price of an expensive luxury handbag was well beyond the reach of the average working person. Let alone having several of these great bags to complement each outfit.

Even simple designer handbags fetch a high price. This price is not based on the materials it is made from but based on the logo it carries. The fashion houses such as Hermes, Prada, Gucci, Fendi, Yves Saint Laurent, Miu Miu and Versace have become so sought after and desired because they convey a sense of vitality, art and prestige. This obsession with logos and branding has driven up the cost of a luxury handbag to such an extent that they are simply just not affordable to most.

For me anyway it was just a dream – a privilege reserved for the royalty, celebrities and the very rich. I once brought a beautiful Channel bag at a garage sale, only to find it was not the real thing, but other than that I have not been able to afford to own an expensive luxury handbag. But things have changed – I can purchase the bag of my dreams online and a fraction of the cost I would have to pay in a store. It is much cheaper to purchase an authentic luxury handbag on line.

But is it safe to buy an expensive luxury handbag online? We are all aware of internet scams so when purchasing online we need to be fully aware of fakes. Our obsession with logos and branding has led to the counterfeiting of designer products with a lot of faux handbags flooding the market, especially in Asia and online.

Faux bags have became massed produced because fashion houses have  moved their manufacturing facilities to third world countries like China where there is less oversight and less concern over copyright infringement. Faux handbags came on the market, tarnishing high-quality brands like Gucci, Prada, Hermes and other high end brands. Any one who has visited a third world country like Bali or China will be aware of the street hawkers who want to take you to a back alley store specialising in fake handbags.

So if you are buying an expensive luxury handbag online it is important to make sure you are buying from a reputable supplier with a policy which prevents replica brand names to be sold.  Fake replicas do not hold the same sentiment as the real thing and often the materials and the quality is inferior. They simply just do not smell or feel or look the same as the real McCoy. So you would not want to spend a lot of money on an expensive luxury handbag only to find out it was not the real thing.

The Large Purse Shop has a policy which prohibits fakes to be sold so all products sold on this website are 100% authentic products which are purchased directly from the designer brand. The Large Purse Shop also has an association with Amazon and has chosen the brand name bags from there to give you a wide range of brands and logos for you to choose from.  So yes it is safe to buy your expensive luxury handbag online from the Large Purse Shop.
