It's gaining suppleness, leather trims are starting to age and patina, going that gorgeous golden honey color that indicates quality leather. The bag has a used and loved look about it without any of nasty signs of wear and tear that an inferior version will have.
And this is one of biggest reasons for price being what it is.
Quality of build and quality of materials used.
Authentic designer handbags are built to last -- sometimes they'll last a lifetime and beyond, making it a family heirloom that's passed down from daughter to daughter.
It is very common for Hermes Birkin and Kelly bags to be in a family for decades -- being used and loved all time.
Some of newer Louis Vuitton lines, such as Suhali, can be expected to outlast just about anything else.
It's quality of leather you see!
Another good reason for buying authentic and not a fake?
Yes -- you! You're important. You don't think so?
(Well, I think you are, even if no one else tells you so!)
You deserve something to be proud of, something that stands you out in a crowd and says "Hey -- Look at me, I've got taste AND class!" That's what an authentic designer handbag will shout for you -- no need for you to get a sore throat all time.
I wonder what a fake shouts out about you?
Careful now - it might be rather rude!!!
