Handbags are more than a handy way to carry essentials.  They are also fashion statements and social status symbols.   A handbag with the name Coach, Prada, or Louis Vuitton indicates prosperity and taste.  These brands are so coveted that they inspire entire lines of imitation products, sold at much lower prices for those who desire the look of luxury, but don't want to pay the premium price.
