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….

    I love Isabella Fiori handbags and have a couple, along with a Carlo Fiori bag. Also Francescobiasia. Nothing like those Italian designers. I am getting older and wondering where I can sell them. Any ideas?

    I think I found a legit Fiori bag in the good will for about $11 with my senior discount. Grey, real leather, with the engraved insignias inside and outside, funky. With silver studs on the back. Orange inside. No sign it was ever used. It does say made in China but it is real leather andnotctacky at all.

    Back in the day it was a fabulous treat to own an Izzy bag!!! My best friend and I had matching bags. Hers was mint green and mine was tan. We were so proud!! We both came to have several over the years and then just like that they were gone and I then bought a couple on ebay. I think her purses need to stay the fun memories that they were. There are just too many brands to choose from at reasonable prices. Consider carrying a Consuela bag! They are just as colorful and fun.
