Are you bold enough to go niche?
This lack of out-of-the-box creativity has opened the door for niche brands to enter a market that is starting to seek out more wildly imaginative, more thought-provoking creations.
Niche houses target the fashion-forward crowd who wants to set trends instead of follow them--people who defy the conventional and value their individuality above all else. Just google up brands such as Marie De La Roche, Staud Clothing, Cult Gaia and Danse Lente, and you'll be treated to a wide range of bag forms and designs that are both inventive yet still very much wearable.
Niche brands push the envelope when it comes to creating and designing bags. Their creations are admittedly not for everyone, but the allure of exclusivity and being one-of-a-kind entices consumers who have gone tired of seeing the same old stuff over and over again. Younger shoppers want to be excited with fashion once again. And niche brands offer just that.
Ultimately, your choice of bags depend on the values you stand up for. Both designer and niche brands offer something different to the table. It's up for you to decide which ones align most with your sense of style, attitude towards fashion, and how you want to present yourself to the world.
