Goyard

You know how a few years ago, Bottega Veneta, a brand that has been around for ages, just started to creep up everywhere? Well the latest age old brand to creep up on us is Goyard, a french brand that has a history all the way back to 1853.

This intricate logo and signature handpainted initials and stripes represents 150 years of serving exclusive clienteles such as the likes of kings, queens, maharajahs and movie stars.

Like Louis Vuitton, it all started with the mega expensive suitcases.

And like any good mercenaries, they proceeded to ladies hangbags. The cheapest of which, is the flimsy tote bag on the left, which costs a grand total of $845. I've seen them in real life and they so do not look or feel $845.

After developing the typical styles of handbags, naturally they moved onto colors. All their styles of handbags comes in the many colors above.

And the next step? Why, exclusivity of course. They cooperated with Barneys and viola- the Barneys exclusive white Goyard bags! But I must say, love this color. Its soo much more easy to match and young then the other colors.

Apart from Barneys, these bags can now be bought at Harvey Nichols, Takashimaya and various other upper class department stores around the globe. They are even in the process of opening a new flagship store in San Francisco, right below the Westin Hotel on Union Square. See what I mean by creeping in on us?

The chevrons are not so attractive. They remind me of the wallpaper patterns found on 1970s movie sets. And for $845, there had better be some lining in the bag!

The Goyard logo is rather clever, though.

And if you want a good laugh, go read the bag descriptions on the Goyard website. The descriptions are best read with a snooty Kathleen Turner-esque accent. They never fail to put a smile on my face! I even devoted a post to the Goyard handbag descriptions.

I'm not a big fan of Goyard, either. I definitely agree with Barney's Girl: the bags are so flimsy, they look like you could rip them very easily! They certainly don't look as good as their prices demand. And yeah, the product descriptions are so snooty, they're funny!

They look a bit too boring for me (and man, they resemble monograms which I hate). But it would make a good simple versatile bag.

I saw the collection og Goyard bags the last time I went to Barney's in New York and completely agree with your statement that they are flimsy. I had seen them in magazines beforehand and was quite surprised and how thin they were when I saw them in person. The exhorbitant price is solely for exclusivity- there is no way that craftmanship can account for that price!

The Goyard handbags are indeed dissapointing. I asked for the luggage on year and I recieved a handbag. I never use it because it looks like you can buy it at payless or new york company.

but i do adore Goyard

Hi there,
this comment is ABSOLUTELY stupid!!!!!
anyway...Goyard is a french brand & known for years in France there's ab. no link w/ the LV logo (or whatever logos) trend!!!
everyone in France (at least who can afford it!) has a Goyard and it is not flimsy...my mother has 1 "malle" & 1 luggage and I own a small weekender (I'm a man who loves women bags...it sounds weird I know) and I can tell you they are perfect!
so go on w/ your crappy Prada or Vuitton and go shopping in a Carrefour (i think it is the same than a Wal-Mart for you in USA)

I kind of really like your blog...go on!!!! you're not really nice but it sounds ok and funny!

(sorry for my bad english I'm french...which is not a good excuse!)

Hi, Im posting this for Garcon, because I love french men for their unaffected confidence that he displayed so humorously. I also love Goyard, and all those bloggers who say its not worth the money, it is ugly, have no real sense of FASHION. They are just followers of trends, and if every american celebrity started carrying these around, these girls would be putting their name on the Barney's waitlist just like every other uninspred fashionista wannabe in the US. So, back to Garcon, do you live in France? In what city? Are you gay? (sorry to get intrusive, but you did say you like womens bags. I can't help it I AM american. God bless this bastard rebel country!)

To the man who said everyone in France had a Goyard... I will say I was recently in France and never once saw a single Goyard. Who are you to be talking down to people who carry Prada or Louis Vuitton, Goyard will never see the envy or the status that thos brands create other than amongst snobs who have no care for the world other than thier posessions. Goyard is ugly, if you want an exclusive bag with merit get a Birkin Bag.

3. goyard is better than louis vuitton, plain and simple.

there design is hands down one of the best designs in fashion [this is coming from a graphic designer]. i know alot of people aren't about the goyard brand, but once you see it hanging from the arms of more celebrities, trust me, you'll be more about it.

its the sad truth...

I just moved to NYC last fall and have been noticing Goyards around town. Never heard of them before. I'm not in the market for a bag that costs the same as my monthly rent, but I'm dying for a Saint Louis nonetheless. It's funny, the whole brand thing. I'd rather have something that less people know about, but is still clearly a status marker among the elite, because it's only those people who have any business buying brand name goods in the first place. I want the quality, and to bask in the eerie but compelling patina of financial bliss without anyone else knowing I care about such superficial bullshit. Aesthetically, it works because it's ugly. Like UGGS, which I also adore.

On second thought, I'd rather find my place in Parisian history in Paris. I'll rather save my nickles and dimes for another trip there, where I will walk the Champs Elysee and opt out of an overpriced latte in favor of a second visit to the Musee D'Orsay. Ultimately, for me, it's about cultural capital more than material goods, though I'm sure the reason I'm attracted to Goyard is the cultural prestige of its elan and the fact that I equate people with the money to carry a brand with that kind of history and obscurity to those who also fit into my sense of high class, read intelligence, poise, style, and a sense of art and travel.

C'est la vie. I'm destined to use my money elsewhere I fear. Maybe someday...

I was in France in September and every girl if they were anyone had these great bags. You have to ring doorbell to enter store there. I was in NY this last month & seemed everyone was catching on there slowly. I told them what I saw in France & suddenly they wanted the bag even more. I live in San Diego and if you were to ask anyone here about Goyard. They would not have a clue what you were talking about.

Eh, the only real difference between Goyard and Louis Vuitton is the size of the company and marketing strategy. Products aren't really that different (except the design of the pattern). There's no point in comparing the two quality-wise, so in the end it's about which design and so called life style you prefer to pay for.

And to all of you who think Goyard is so exclusive, it has already been featured on Oprah...

I purchased a 50 Boeing when in Paris a couple of weeks ago and really like the bag. Unfortunately the service is not too good. The SA sold me a strap to go with the bag, which is nothing remarkable, except the bag does not provide for a shoulder strap. When I tried to return the strap Goyard refused to refund what I had paid and will only give me a store credit. So, be careful when you make a purchase from them and do not just go with what the sales associate tells you.

My personal opinion....I think the bags "look" cheap and ugly. They look like plastic to me. Who cares if the brand has history or whether its exclusive or if the French/NYC girls are carrying. If its ugly...I ain't buying it and I won't be caught carrying it. You are also entitled to your own opinion...so buy it if you really think its worthed, not because you think others think its pretty. but seriously.....i think its ugly!!

I think these Goyard bags are just about the ugliest thing I've ever seen. My friend was proudly showing me her "personalized" tote and frankly I think I could find something more attractive in the flea market. I love style and quality, and I think you can find plenty of both with other designer bags. As for Goyard, I can honestly say that if you GAVE one to me, I wouldn't wear it.

Goyard has been around for more than 150 years. They're doing something right. As with most of the comments here, they tend to reflect more on the commentator than the product. When "the sound and the fury" are over, Goyard will undoubtedly continue blithely to produce its very limited but very special merchandise. I have been travelling with Goyard for forty years now, and am somewhat dismayed by the sudden success of a brand which has always been known in elite circles. The company was recently bought over by a wealthy businessman who has decided to catapult the brand to international prominence. Fortunately the quality has not changed one iota, and the malady, à la Vuitton, of having to produce ten new models each season has not infected or ruined this venerable maison. Oh yes, by the way, avoid purchasing those 'flimsy' bags you are all talking about in New York - unless you get them from a reliable source, that is. Fake Goyards are absolutely flooding the market, and since it is too expensive to reproduce the elaborate models, the pirates are exploiting the simple one. I can spot them a mile away, and so can any other aficionado with a passable eye.

Petroniusarbiter is right, and I would add this: Goyard only becomes a true status symbol if one shells out for the personalized monogram (handpainted in either a 19th century or more modern font) or combination of stripes. Personalization has always been an integral part of the brand, and it totally takes the curse off of the nondescript pattern which is meant to act as a background and not call attention to itself. That is why so few people are aware of the brand. Once personalized, however, the bag falls into another category altogether. The letters and stripes are not an insignificant detail. Far from it. They often cost more than the item itself, and that is the 'chic' part of it all. Only insiders are aware of this fact, and so you may all thank me for the enormous service I am rendering by revealing this information. By the way, if you are a Count or a Countess, Goyard will paint a coronet over your initials (how is that for 'chic'?), but of course, those of royal lineage have been aware of this for over a century.

I am a huge goyard fan, and i must say as someone who prefers to have things most people do not, i was one of the very first of my circle, to not only have a goyard bag but to have a striped monogrammed one at that, which is as the women before me stated the whole point. They are as she pointed out the most reliable bags and like vuitton the quality has not deminshed over time. you should all take note that where vuitton is flashy goyard is the picture of sophistication and might i add one of the few companies who has not succumb to the flash that bringing on Marc Jacobs has bestowed upon the vuitton name.

a secret? uh, i'd say the word is out on the stripes & initials thing and has been for, oh, about a year or so. even bill cunningham did his sunday feature on it in the times last winter. actually it's so trendy to have a handpainted st. louis here in nyc that it's over. in an attempt to be unique, and therefore in another class altogether, some are having their bags hand painted by graffiti artists -- the more infamous, the better -- and not by goyard. it's just fashion as usual, nothing more, nothing less.

I got the Majordome (the briefcase looking one), it was I think $3200, in the SF store. I actually went in to see what the fuss was about (sucker that I am), and this nice friendly young man helped me pick one. He had such nice personality, not idiotically fawning or arrogant or chi chi. He struck just the right note and wasn't pushy. I actually would never have bought the bag if I didn't like him (I'm that kind of shopper). I had antique gold block initials put on mine to make it look like the 19th century old trunks. Terrific. Love the yellow twill lining. The only complaints: the zip is a bit stiff, drives me nuts zipping it open and shut twenty times a day. Also, it's just made of cloth canvas (painted), not leather, yet you are paying as if it's made of all-leather. Once I get over that, I actually like it, it looks retro and cool and I'm planning to buy another one to match. You unfortunately can't just stop at one, because it looks better when you have a matching suite. I know, I'm a sucker. Also, they're not every yet, so it's nice to have it knowing not everyone has one. I'm sure that will soon change...

I love all my Goyards, the construction is extremely nice, and the totes, The St. Louis are extremely lightweight, the only problem I have with the company is the way they paint their initials, I have one of my St. Louis painted as well as my Ambassade, and they arent one year old, and already chipping. Im not sure if they even lacquered the paint so that it doesnt come off. I dont care how much of a history it has, Im paying for the "craftmanship", not the history

Had only 5 days in SF so on day 2 got my skyblue Fidji. Been nitpicking and noticed an area not stitched properly but not visible.

Used the fidji anyways and fell in love with it. Went sightseeing with it with bottled water, maps, brochures, wallet, sunlasses, eyeglasses, tissues, wipes, cellphone....

Thought about exchanging the Fidji for the same one but they were out of stock. They said "nothing's wrong with it".

Went out with a new black Croisiere 35 with matching strap.

The more I look at it the more I smile. It just looks so fierce! For looks I love the croisiere. But for the pragmatic side of me - I love the Fidji.

My croisiere came with only a short zipper inside. No open pocket/s. Is this normal? I hope the SA didn't sell me a dud bag.

He even forgot the receipt!

i just would want to forget my Goyard store experience. But I do love their bags.

I just bought mine last Saturday in their St. Honore store in Paris. I am absolutely in love with it. I was deciding between the LV Never Full and the Goyard St. Louis. I don't regret my decision to go Goyard.

I do have to admit, the service in the store wasn't fantastic. And the store was a bit of a mess when I was there (boxes everywhere).

Doesn't make me love my bag any less, though.

I got my Goyard wallet in 2003, in the St honore store, I'm a guy, but I am very fashion consiousce, I've been reading all your posts, and I must admit I have had a few laughs.
I would like to add the following thoughts though.
Goyard is a company that has been making luggage and bags for more than 150 years, and they really know what they are doing, just the fact that the pieces are hand crafted, puts them in class of there own, whether they are in "fashion" is completely besides the point, LV or hermes or Gucci, are mass produced marketing tools, (where 3 out of 5 bags you see being carried are knock off's anyway), it is a crime to even to begin to compare the brands. Goyard represents sophistication, style and an era of real glamour, it is true to say that those of you who know....know. The steep price tags reflect these above traits and not the quality of leather used, or how big the bag is.
It is my sincere hope, that Goyard will remain in the few hands of those who are in the know, and who genuily appreciate the beauty and qaulity of their Goyard peice.

I have a Goyard St. Louis GM in black. Upon my initial view of the bag I felt it was a great size, but I was VERY concerned about the durability of the bag. It certainly looked flimsy and I couldn't imagine it holding all of the items I lug around. I was also impressed with the bag's ability to be reversible. I decided to grab one.

I used the bag the entire summer and loved it. I would have never thought it could hold up to my abuse nor tote around all of my things. I was surprised!! I also loved the fact that it folds almost paper thin and can be packed into any of my other bags. That means I could stuff it with new buys later and have a choice of bags while I travel. I have never used it with the interior reversed because I didn't want to get it dirty. The handles are a bit too thin for my tastes, but the bag held up mostly. I'm a guy so a thicker or even wider handle would have suited me better.

In conclusion, the bag is very versatile and definitely a workhorse. It's time to retire my bag due to my other purchases, but I think I may hold on to it for a while...you know, just in case.

To everyone who claims Goyard is boring or flimsy.

I'm confident that the quality and craftsmanship in a Goyard piece is worth far more than a trashy Louis Vuitton that screams conspicuous wealth.

Every commoner who could afford it would rather buy a LV bag for its well known brand. But buying a Goyard is as much expensive but much more posh, as it is not as well known as LV, it's so much more interesting to carry a Goyard whereas everyone else in the crowd has a LV...

I know they look flimsy and i thought the same thing at first . I've been using my goyard for 5 years now, it's still looking new and does not scratch at all.

just bought mine last week from the barneys in NYC, yellow st. louis GM. it cost me a pretty penny, but i've been debating/saving up for a bag like this since last summer. it holds my books for school and some overnight gear, plus all my usual stuff for everyday. it's often completely stuffed.

i originally wanted to get the white, but sales lady told me the white is the only one that would require maintenance so i got the yellow one instead.

most ppl dont recognize the bag, which is why i ultimately chose goyard over the LV nevrfull.

it's EXTREMELY light, weighing almost nothing on the shoulder. my previous bag was leather and heavy without any of my stuff so this is a much better alternative. the straps are thin but they stay put, i rarely have to adjust them on my shoulder, it just sits well.

i am a little concerned about the amount of stuff i put in it, the fabric is so thin and i've had bags break right at the handle before. so far this is holding up to the hype, the sales lady said it should last me a good 4-5 years, so we'll see :) i have a feeling i'll be in for another one soon, maybe the smaller one or the fidji :)

<<(...)so go on w/ your crappy Prada or Vuitton and go shopping in a Carrefour (i think it is the same than a Wal-Mart for you in USA)

I kind of really like your blog...go on!!!! you're not really nice but it sounds ok and funny!

(sorry for my bad english I'm french...which is not a good excuse!)>>

Yes, you shouldn't have to excuse your bad english. But your comment sounds rude and I hope you don't use the excuse of being 'French'

i've been to Barneys in Beverly Hills & seen Goyard handbags. i fell in love with the Saigon MM in orange. i thought its unique & vibrant looking! i may get it or... rather get a Birkin 30cm? in Ciel?? hmm...so you guys shouldn't battle on the purse brand issue. don't hate! appreciate! they're all fabulous! & if you can own all of them, hey! may the force be with you! haha!

For all of those who think they are so fashionably in the know and ahead for owning a Goyard, just because you carry a goyard it does not make you fashionable. The bag may be seen as a fashionable status symbol, yes... but you, no you're still irrelevant. so please just shut up.

Threre is Vuitton for thousand of mass Rolex fans, and there is Goyard for Patek Philippe's ones. ;-)

everybody needs to stop comparing Goyard to LV, Goyard is exclusive & high class, why do you think this brand only has a hand full of stores?? to keep it that way. so it wouldnt be like LV, wich has obviously become MASS PRODUCTION. like who would even wanna be seen with an LV anymore or gucci or prada for that matter, all those brands have totally lost their status, since you see 20 fakes at every corner of the street.
If you have a Goyard you know something about elegance and style. and those who hate on it, are probably tasteless or they just can't afford it.
tho i dont mind people hating the bag, the more people hating it the less people wearing it... which then again keeps it even more exclusive!
so keep on hating i would say, ur only making us look better.

I think whatever brand of handbags you carry tell what kind of person you are. The Goyard carriers show that they are rich but humble, not want to be known. The LV carriers show that they wanna show off but do not really have the money.

I only like 3 things about my St. Louis Goyard tote I bought in France:

1) Waterproof
2) Big opening to put in and take stuff from.
3) Simple/colorful/customizable designs.

But after my car keys made a hole in the bag..It's not the almost-perfect-throw-around bag I expected :( All I can say is, now, people would just buy it for the history of the name, exclusivity, and because some celebrity spent thousands on a grocery bag.."and why shouldn't I..I'm a sucker"?

I won't buy another Goyard bag..but perhaps the luggages/trunks ;)

Let me add my 2 cents to this old blog. Goyard, like any other well established brand, can be just as beautiful or ugly as any other brand. Your gonna have pieces that you love from Goyard, LV, Gucci, Prada, Valextra, etc. and ones that you hate. The key is getting something that is worth the money, in terms of quality, and is different and unique; something that sets you apart. To me, Gucci's quality overall is superb. I have several shoes that I had for years and they still look brand new. Anyone that has them can make the same claim. Likewise, with Dolce and Gabbana. LV has many sturdy pieces as well, but I like to purchase pieces that do not scream Louis Vuitton.

I have examined Goyard products a couple years ago, and honestly some of their pieces looked like knock offs. I couldn't believe it! I was so disappointed! However, their luggage looked solid. I will purchase a St. Louis grand modele because I need something that is sturdy, roomy, and unique for work and that would be perfect. I just don't feel an allegiance to any one brand. Although I love the historical background of these brands, especially Goyard...I'm just not a slave to any of them.

I noticed that this blog started in 2005. 2005 I knew nothing of Goyard. Fast forward to 2013, Goyard has carved its on path and continues to grow. To the many that said Goyard will never BE, I guess you guys are eating your words now. I am a male and I have purchased many high-end bags for my wife. There is something special about Goyard. Its an acquired taste and the exclusivity of the brand speaks volumes.

I have the Voltaire in black. The paint had come off and Goyard says it's normal for that to happen. I paid almost $3,000 for a bag that the paint is coming off? I'll never buy another one again! I love the design but the quality is ridiculous. How is that ok?

The actual chevrons aren't therefore appealing. These people help remind me personally from the picture designs available on 1970s film models. As well as with regard to $845, presently there have to be a few coating within the tote!
