In 1975 Peter Dooney and Frederic Bourke created their business Dooney and Bourke. The company’s specialty is in wallets and hand bags. When the company started out they decided to go with bold and vibrant colors that really pop and stand out and it really worked for them, because they were able to set themselves apart from the competition, which they are still doing today. The Dooney and Bourke Wallets typically always have the large D and the large B printed on them. The D and B obviously represent the designer’s last names.
The wallets come in a variety of sizes as well as color so women can coordinate them according to their outfits and hand bags. The nice thing about the wallets is that they can go with other designer hand bags too (well unless you choose another brand with initials, in that case it would look completely tacky). Another thing to keep in mind is that a Dooney wallet can be a little big and sometimes you do not want to carry a big hand bag around in order to carry your money. Well Dooney and Bourke also carry a line of wristlets. They are perfect for a night out on the town for a young lady who only needs her ID, money, debit and or credit card and maybe some lip gloss on her.
Their wallets match the rest of the Dooney and Bourke style. Their overall style is very classy and American girl. They want to give off the image of the girl next door meets busy girl who multitasks (which that pretty much targets just about everyone). For the company’s advertising, they choose to use celebrities such as Emma Roberts and Mischa Barton to help promote the company’s image. In these advertisements the girls are holding gorgeous hand bags, gorgeous wallets, and they themselves look just absolutely gorgeous.
One fun fact I came across was that some of the Dooney Wallets even have names. Their names are Quilt, Bumble Bee, the Dooney and Bourke “It” wallet, Croco, the Signature wallet, Vintage Leather, and the Doodle. I would highly recommend purchasing the Bumble Bee if you want (as some people say) the most bang for your buck, because that Dooney Wallet out of all them match with literally everything. The Bumble Bee wallet has blue, green, red, orange, yellow, and purple pretty much every color that you would see in a rainbow. The wallets are not just for women, but men as well. The mens wallets come in a couple of different designs. One is for the guys ID and is very thin and small; the other is the bill fold type. The wallet that a man may purchase starts at around $70 dollars and goes up to about $150 dollars. However, you can purchase both men and women wallets online, but beware of scammers as they try to sell a fake for the real thing.
