When you’re in the fashion and beauty blogging/writing business you come across some of the most captivating pieces of clothing, shoes, or accessories. It’s almost to the point where it’s a form of euphoria or even some have called it “orgasmic”. I know they’re just articles of clothing or accessories, but then again, they aren’t. Their like pieces of art, art made from some of the fashion worlds brightest minds.

Which brings me to the purpose of this post. I consistently browse through Net-a-porter and found myself going through it this morning. I literally was just in a “clothing high”, so I guess, to me yes, there is such a thing. Remember, things go pretty fast so act quick.

Vintage Chanel

Chanel, there is no other great designer that. Not just any item though, vintage, Vintage pieces of The House of Chanel. The brand has remained a leader in the fashion industry whose handbags have held their value and have become ageless. There have been plenty of replicas and which have been marketed at less than what the value is and should be.

Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel first dreamed up the 2.55 in the early 1920s. Tired of having to carry her bag in her hands, she looked for inspirations and found some from soldiers’ packs. She later incorporated an extended strap into her own carryall. From this inspiration, she launched the quilted bag in February 1955 after World War II by putting a long chain strap and has captivated woman ever since. Not just with the quilted handbag, but accessories as well. Moda Operandi has a collection of the world’s most iconic handbags and accessories.

Michael Kors: At It Again

In a recent post, I wrote how Michael Kors seems to be duplicating the looks of many other designers such as the amazing Louis Vuitton with his new bag “Jet Set Logo Tote”As a phenomenal designer, I just don’t get why you would want to try and duplicate another designers work. Yes, I can see how he is trying to capture the market of women who want that designer look without the designer price, but it’s getting to be a bit excessive now.

He has now come out with two more additional handbags that resemble the Stella McCartney Falabella Purse and Valentino’s Rock Star Tote and these are just a handful of others that he seems to continue to replicate. I also want to note that the “Falabella Purse” and “The Rock Stud”  have been in stores since last year. Am I the only one that seems to notice this? Is it normal for established designers with his stature to create handbags with such similarities to other big designers such as these? Me, being someone who buys nothing but authentic designer handbags, not because they are name brand, but because of the beauty of the handbag and the originality of the handbag.

I personally do not want to carry a knock off version of the original design of the handbag that I paid a pretty price for. In my opinion, its the principal of the matter, and Michael Kors duplicating the looks of many well known designers handbags could very well fall into the category of the black market knock off handbags.
