Your Horoscope Is In The Bag

 

Greek designer Urania Giourmetaki, who goes by her creative name Urania Gazelli, has worked for years with plexiglass alongside her father and has made a name for herself in Greece. She founded her brand in 2010 with the notion that philosophy meets futurism with classicism.

These plexiglass clutch bags are handcrafted using exceptional materials and finished with her signature brass gold plated sign inside the bag. Although she creates a vast collection of handbags, her fall/winter 2015 collection is full of the zodiac signs. Yes, your zodiac sign has never been better. These handbags are truly vibrant and what a way to let everyone know just a little bit about your horoscope.

The collection is available for pre-order now through Moda Operandi and this truly a handbag you’ll want to have just because of the uniqueness. Scroll through the gallery of these beautiful handbags:

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.
