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.
