8 bags that vaguely resemble the Proenza Schouler PS1 Messenger Satchel

Proenza Schouler Medium PS1 Satchel, $1,595 You may have heard all the flack about Target allegedly knocking off Proenza Schouler’s bestselling PS1 Satchel. The Mossimo Messenger and PS1 do look pretty similar in design (but not construction), with a boxy satchel/messenger shape, top handle, triangular flap and decorative buckled straps. But Target’s not the only one selling a messenger-style ...

Real or faux-real: Rebecca Minkoff’s Unicorn Collection M.A.C. Twinkle bag

We woke up this morning to an email from Rebecca Minkoff announcing her new collection – the Unicorn Collection. Said to be inspired by Rebecca’s ‘favorite mythical creature’, the collection features ‘genuine unicorn haircalf’, spiral horn detail and ‘a touch of magic’. At first we were enthralled! And then we realized it was April Fool’s Day. And ...

Fashion Inspiration Comes From Everywhere: Alexander Wang Brady Football Clutch

So Alexander Wang is a closeted football fan. Who knew? The Alexander Wang Brady Football Clutch appears to be named after Patriots’ quarterback/Gisele’s hubby Tom Brady and modeled after a football. Since we are no fans of “the favorite sport in America” (call us unpatriotic if you must!), it doesn’t appeal to us, even though we are die-hard Alexander Wang handbag fans ...

Zigi NY knocks off Be&D’s studded Garbo satchel

The other day while strolling through Soho, I stopped at the window of a store to check out a bag that caught my eye. In a classic case of ‘haven’t I seen this bag somewhere before?’, I quickly recognized it as a blatant knockoff. It was the Zigi NY Women’s Stud Muffin Gold Hardware Handbag ($245) which looks exactly like the iconic Be&D Garbo Satchel ($655 – was ...

Fashion Inspiration Comes From Everywhere…Karl Lagerfeld on a Chanel

On Chanel‘s recent show in Paris, models walked down the runway toting handbags sporting the likeness of Karl Lagerfeld on the front, like a mask. The ‘Kaiser’ Karl is known for saying some inane things and designing some questionable things, (like the recent Chanel ‘Miami Vice’ Gun shoes) but this is the most narcissistic act of fashion ever. What do you think of these ...

Fashion Inspiration Comes From Everywhere: the R.&Y. Augousti Spangled Clutch

When I first laid eyes on this clutch, I immediately thought of Project Runway Season 2 finalist Santino Rice’s dress covered in gold pailettes. It looked like a fish out of water. And so does this bag. But despite the over-embellished body, I love it. The Spangled Clutch by R. & Y. Augousti looks medieval and scaly, as if some sea creature put on a coat of arms and gold jewels. The center ...

Fashion Inspiration Comes From Everywhere: Jean Paul Gaultier

I never thought I’d see the day I put John Paul Gaultier on a ‘Not Haute’ list. But designing a women’s clutch inspired by men’s boxing shorts? That’s not haute. Every time I look at this clutch I feel like pulling out my boxing gloves and hitting the speedbag. Ok, he gets points for creativity but really, what woman wants to carry her stuff around in a pair of ...

Fashion Inspiration Comes From Everywhere: Yves St. Laurent

Is it just me or does this YSL tote closely resemble Mariah Carey’s spray-painted abs? Just a little fashion food for thought… Yves Saint Laurent Overseas Medium Leather Tote, $1,895, Saks Fifth Avenue  Read More →
