Pop Goes the Dooney


What has become of the legacy of Dooney & Bourke? What ever happened to the classic bags, high quality leather and brass hardware, and simplicity of design? This is one of those bags that left me utterly speechless when I first saw it. The only clue that this is a Dooney & Bourke bag are the D’s, B’s and the Dooney & Bourke name scrawled across the popsicles.


Yes, Popsicles. Why are popsicles on a Dooney and Bourke bag? I’m not sure. If I didn’t know better, I would think this was some sort of knockoff, like a fake Fendi bag with interlocking L’s instead of F’s. But I do know better. I know that Dooney and Bourke no longer cares to appeal to a more discriminating clientele, and prefers the teenybopper set. I also know that has lost the fight with themselves to remain a relevant and brilliant design house and is quickly spiraling down the abyss of cheap. And not chic.

    It is very interesting that these bags, although fun, should be issued a cease and desist order. Functional, yet totally young. Dooney continues in its failure to appeal to the age group that has kept them in business for so long. My niece adores the current crop, and I only adore it because it continues to show up in Marshalls/TJ Maxx on sale-perfectly fitting high-quality, yet borishly styled affordable tween bags.

    Have you ever realized that when you buy readymade suits you get a choice of only a few colors & styles, also finding the perfect fit are quite difficult? Wouldn’t it be better to choose from over 2000 different British & Italian fabrics and get a tailor made suit at a similar price that you pay for readymade suits?

With representatives in major cities around the globe we can arrange to show you the fabric samples and take your measurements, or you can also place your orders online with the help of our measuring guide. There are over 2000 fabrics to choose from along with all the latest styles.
