Replica handbags have become quite popular among fashion forward people who want to keep up with the trends but do not have the money to buy a new branded back every season.
While a cheaper price is one of the biggest reasons people opt to go for replica handbags, it is not the only one. Availability and practicality too are big concerns.
Think about the amount of money you would be spending on a single original designer bag. One Balenciaga bag costs as much as the down payment on a small car! Most shoppers feel this expense isn’t worth it, especially since bags go out of style so quickly, only to be replaced by another.
Availability is another issue. For example, Louis Vuitton may only create 100 of a type of specialty bag that will be sold to a small number of important clientele. If any remain, fans of the brand may be able to get their hands on a few, that too will only be available in major international cities like New York and Dubai. With many people waiting in line to get their hands on the coveted bag, a replica becomes way easier to buy.
The third reason is practicality. As nice as it feels to own a prestigious branded handbag, how often will you really use it? You will also have to be prepared to pay for maintaining that costly bag and ensure it is kept in a place with no moisture and dust. What if someone carelessly scratches your $2000 bag at the club, what will you do then? The high price suddenly does not seem very smart.
