In research conducted in partnership with Stylitics, the market research company discovered that quality, details and uniqueness trump household brand names when it comes to the handbag habits of millenials.

Much like buying something as big as a flat, 41% of millenials embark on this journey more than a month in advance of actually flashing the cash – a further 61% assess all their options online before making the final purchase.

These findings may explain why handbag sales among millenials have only risen by 2% in recent years despite the general increase across the entire demographic of adult women being much higher - if you put the research in, you're much more likely to get a handbag that lasts you both physically and emotionally through the years.
