These prizes used to mean something; now they just give it away to anyone.
LabelKing, our design tastes seem to match (at least on the Valextra and the Lancia)...
In any case, the rapid price rise of Valextra is unusual. I'm not sure the experiment worked, however, because prices seem to be falling again.
Is Valextra considered equivalent in quality to Hermes?
