There is something I want to make clear right from the very start of this article. Yes, there is a major difference between a handbag, and a purse. In America - a purse is actually referred to in the say way as a handbag - which is the cause of all the confusion. In Europe however, a purse is a small "wallet like" item, with a sole purpose of carrying loose change around without it getting lost or separated. It also allows for easy access to your coins, because they are all in one place.
So, now that we have cleared that up - I can move on to the real purpose of this article - H&M handbags. For those of you who are not familiar with H&M product, let me tell you a bit about them. Basically, the company has 3 key mottos for doing business.
1. Cost / Price Efficiency
2. High Quality Goods
3. Premium Level Customer Service
Once you take all three of these things in to account, and once you actually enter an H&M store and find a product which is perfect for you - you will truly understand why H&M is succeeding in a market where most other retailers are struggling. Ok - so back to the ultimate topic of handbags. It will soon become clear that the H&M handbag range is one which is not to be messed with. The quality of their handbags is up there with some of the top designers in the industry - the likes of Prada, Dulce & Gabanna, and so on. To be able to acquire a product of such a high standard for such a low price is really a miracle within itself.
The only real difference between the H&M version and the Prada version is that with H&M, you just might see someone with the same bag as you - walking down the street. If you can live with this - then H&M is the place for you to do your shopping.
Oh, and I just thought I should mention - handbags aren't the only fashion accessory done by H&M. They also have a stake in the production and retailing of belts, costs, and mainstream apparel. Get in quick, because a new line is about to be launched - and I have no doubt that this will sell out in record time.
