Pour La Victoire vs. Maison Martin Margiela: Boxing Match

Pour la Victoire vs. Maison Martin Margiela

Once considered a novelty, the ubiquitous box shape is now a staple in our bag collections. It’s still a fun diversion from your go-to essentials, though, which is why it can be hard to justify splurging on a piece like this Maison Martin Margielaicon (on thecorner.com for $1,745). If you’re hesitant, go with Pour La Victoire’s black Bonne Tonne (on Shopbop for $395). It has all the personality at less than 1/4th of the cost! Each option has its own unique merits – a suede panel decorating the Frugal Snob bag and a metallic insert on the jade MMM (while just a silver sliver when closed, open the flap and the mirrored accent can’t be missed). The latter is also a little larger and more structured, but really there’s no right choice here. What do you think – which box bag wins this match?
