Isabella Fiore comeback?

I always wondered what happened to Isabella Fiore’s kitschy (and slightly tacky) bags.  It was like they disappeared overnight!  I found out they folded a couple of years ago but now a new owner is hoping to relaunch the brand.   The bag market is a different place than it was back in 2006, however, and the new owner has adjusted the prices accordingly.  Where the handbags once ranged from $695 to $895 at retail, they have been brought them down to $495 to $595.  With so many options available now and many talented new designers– I think it will be difficult for Isabella Fiore to capture the market share it once enjoyed.  What about you– will you be buying Isabella Fiore once again?

Me, I say let a sleeping dog lie.

    This bag would be fun to take to a Fiesta! But, not so much for everyday. I hate it when someone takes an original designers brand and remakes it. Ruins the memories… Wal Mart, Penny’s et al are littered with brands I had fun in as a teen in the 80s.. now they are just junk.

    Lockheart is the new Isabella Fiori and if your not in love with the funky amazing works of art a la Isabella Fiori there are plenty of people who are. The best part is we all have SOOO many choices in bags, style, price points…no need to “bag on” any one company with so many to choose from….
