Goyard Limited Edition Aligre

Combing our great love of both monograms and raffia bags is this 2017 limited edition ode to summer, Goyard’s new Aligre tote bag. Inspired by chic string shoppers French women would carry out when they went grocery shopping, the Aligre is, in a nutshell, one of the most unique Goyard bags I’ve seen in a long, long while.

With the raffia mesh hand-plaited over a pair of beech wood rods that’s also responsible for providing the tote’s structure, a Goyardine coated-canvas flap pouch is then added onto the frame, providing a secure space for small essentials that might otherwise slip out of the mesh. Use it as a beach bag, use it as grocery tote; you could even use it as you go about your business up and down Orchard Road and have heads turning to check out your quirky one-off piece.

The bad news? It is a limited edition offering that will only be sold via Goyard boutiques in Paris and Biarritz, so if anyone is heading up to the city of love anytime soon, do let me know.

Are You a Goyard Person?

PurseBlog Asks Goyard

Last week, Chavie Lieber of Racked interviewed me for an in-depth look at the cult of Goyard. It’s a brand unlike any other we cover; even Hermès, in all of its tradition and conservatism, still debuts seasonal collections at Paris Fashion Week, sells a portion of its product line on its website and has boutiques in all the world’s major luxury markets. Goyard, on the other hand, does none of that, but it retains an ardent following and seems to attract new, younger customers, despite no advertising, an extremely limited retail presence and as little interaction with the media as you could imagine. What gives?

When Lieber asked me why I thought Goyard continued to attract customers despite its general rejection of all commonly used methods of doing exactly that, I balked. Having never found any of Goyard’s bags particularly compelling, it’s not a question I could answer from personal experience with my own shopping urges, and it’s not one I’ve ever seen Goyard’s loyal horde of customers discuss in any detail. If you’re a loyal Goyard fan, we want to hear from you.

What first attracted you to Goyard’s products, and how did you learn about the brand? Goyard’s website proudly proclaims that it doesn’t make seasonal products, so how does the brand hold your interest? Does celebrity affection for the brand, particularly the lightweight St. Louis totes, help or hinder your love for Goyard? Do you wish that the brand provided more variety, or is the brand’s ultra-traditional approach and distaste for the spotlight part of the magic?

Hilary Duff Doubles Up with Bags from Louis Vuitton and Goyard

Louis Vuitton

Hilary Duff Louis Vuitton Empreinte Speedy Goyard St. Louis Tote

Here’s Hilary Duff, leaving a fitness studio in West Hollywood, carrying a Louis Vuitton Speedy Empreinte 25 Bandoulière Bag and a Goyard St. Louis Tote. Strangely enough, we’ve seen Hilary carry both of these bags before, which is a definite first/sign of the end times. We know from extensive research that Hilary uses her many lightweight, durable Goyard totes as diaper bags and gym bags fairly frequently. Goyard doesn’t sell its bags online, but you can find Hilary’s Speedy for $2,840 at Louis Vuitton.

Hilary Duff’s handbag collection seems to expand exponentially with every passing season. If you feel the need to keep abreast of every Duff acquisition in recent history, you’ve certainly come to the right place. Though, be warned: it’s an alarming amount of handbags. Check out“The Many Bags of Hilary Duff” and “The Many Bags of Hilary Duff, Part 2.”
