It seems that we are designer bound, mere fashion addicts destined to forever crave for beautifully crafted luxury handbags. Purses are our joy, our passion, our identity. And, honestly, what person with a minimum fashion sense could blame us? These stylish accessories are everything a lady needs for looking and feeling good. Chic, functional and versatile, bags are unquestionably a girl’s best friend.
And there is no greater and better choice than a designer handbag. Clearly, Designerbound.com is fully aware of this. Its page is dedicated to two of our favorite brands- Hermes and Celine. Oddly enough, this store carries only these two designers. No other famous bags names are available here. Usually, this kind of websites list as many brands as possible to meet a broader range of tastes and preferences.
It seems that almost everything about this store is limited, even its design. The homepage is incredibly simple and dull. The color scheme is horrible- kitschy shades of blue, gray and green. The layout is chaotic- menus on top of other menus, promotional texts everywhere, a tasteless small banner in the center and a couple of sponsored products in the bottom of the page- nothing that would suggest professionalism.
Given the fact that the website has so few brands available it is perfectly understandable why it wanted to compensate this shortcoming with a very large number of products. For instance, the Hermes category includes 26 pages of replica bags and Celine includes 30 pages. Luckily for us, these knockoffs are organized into collections and can be filtered by price and popularity.
One thing is for sure, these replica bags are anything but affordable. The cheapest Hermes purse here costs $1,450. That’s just insane. I don’t get it why one would pay over $1,000 on a Hermes replica when he could buy an authentic Prada just for a couple hundreds more. Apparently, the reasons for this shocking price are the fact that the purses are made from authentic leather and are hand stitched. In case you were wondering, the most expensive bag on this site is a Hermes Birkin 35 made from crocodile leather. It costs $9,600. For real!
If we take a look at the product pictures we will find it very hard to believe that this company is a professional. The fake purses are photographed in all sorts of unorthodox settings like on a wardrobe door, over a bed, hanged from a statue or in a plain grayish décor. I honestly do not know what to believe about this- if the pictures are the company’s property or if they represent the actual products available here. The wisest thing would be to ask the company to send you some additional pictures of its replicas before you order.
It looks like Designerbound.com is really preoccupied about offering the best available payment methods to its customers. The company has a much diversified selection of payment choices like Paypal, Western Union, Bank Transfer, Money Gram and Credit card(Visa and Mastercard). The only problem with its credit card option is that you can’t select it in the order form- a very concerning aspect that may very well be a technical glitch. Nevertheless, they should definitely fix this as soon as possible. Also, Western Union and Money gram enjoy a 10% discount while Bank Transfers get 5% off.
As any self-respecting online store that carries over-priced replica bags, this merchant offers free worldwide delivery for all its customers, regardless of the order total. The packages are shipped with EMS and the estimated delivery time is about 7-10 business days. There is also the option of paying extra to have the package expedited with DHL or FEDEX which costs about $40 and it takes about 4-7 days to receive the package.
Designerbound.com is very harsh when it comes to its return policy. The company accepts returns only if the product is defective or the wrong model. They do not issue a refund simply because you aren’t satisfied with the quality or if you changed your mind. Even more concerning is the fact that in case you want your money back because they have sent you a broken or incorrect item, you will be the one who will have to pay all the return shipping costs. For countless reasons, I find this policy highly unfair.
I simply do not get it. How could a company that sells replica purses for over $1,500 run its business when the only way of contacting its customer service is by sending a message to a Gmail account? There is no phone number, no live chat service, no other type of responsive and professional communication channel. This is just insane. I could never spend thousands of dollars on a fake when I can’t even get a hold of their customer care department.
Usually, replica handbags come cheap, but not these ones. Here, at Designerbound.com fake purses are valued as genuine ones and the price tag reflects this with a rare showiness. In the pictures, the items look pretty good, the delivery is free, there is even the option of paying by Paypal, but would you really spend a fortune on a knockoff when you can’t even speak live to an agent? Or would you trust the company that offers a refund only if it has sent you a defective or incorrect item, but not if you aren’t satisfied with the quality?
