Louis Vuitton or Hermès?

Are you a bag lover?
.
I am an addict! I am obsessed with these things!
.
Bags to me are like shoes to Imelda Marcos, Tyra Banks to America's Next Top Model, Edward Cullen to Bella Swan.
.
Aside from Facebook, i think that bags are one of God's greatest gifts to mankind... well... at least not before concealer and lipgloss. :)
.
When it comes to brands though, there are very few powerful brands that actually stand out from the rest and separate the owner from the so called masses. Among the favorites are Chanel, Bottega Veneta, Goyard and of course, Louis Vuitton and Hermès.
..


.
.
These two brands are probably one (or two for that matter) of the most hyped power-bag-brands in this lifetime. Thanks to the likes of Paris Hilton and Victoria Beckham.
.
But do you know that unknown to many (excluding all the fashionistas around...), this is a case of bag warfare turned bag alliance?
.
In 1993, Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH) has acquired a 17% stake worth in company shares in Hermès International. Apparently, the decision to list the company in the Paris Stock Exchange is a move by Hermès to support its long term goal of expansion.
.
.
.
.
For bag lovers everywhere like myself, this means that Hermès may be on the way to coexisting peacefully with LV on the luxury retail shelf! haha!
.
.
While I am at it, Stardoll... yes we have the Patchwork, the Speedy (or something that looks like it), the LV Weekender and the Ashley Bag but can we please, pretty please have MORE?
.
... I am practically on my knees and begging you (believe me I don't do this very often...). You already gave us Chanel I know, but remember... girls can't have enough luxury bag brands around. *wink*
.


And Stardoll, while you're at it (i'll be pushing the envelope further now...) can we have this Carrie Bradshaw Crystal "Bella" Clutch from Sex and the City 2 designed by fellow Philippino designer Bea Valdes on the Starplaza shelves as well...please??? :)
.
.
L-O-V-E it !!!
