I’ll look for any excuse to quote “Clueless,” so to paraphrase Cher: V73, this tote is just a lawsuit waiting to happen! I’m all for cheeky pop art when it’s in the right context. And let’s be realistic, few brands can resist doing a little Hermès play every now and again, but this feels unoriginal even for a conscious knockoff!
Humorous, yes. And this printed canvas tote isn’t even bad-looking if we’re going solely on aesthetics (the large, flared shape is nice and the metal strap charm breathes a hint of life). The etching of the quintessential Hermès satchel is actually a pretty well-drawn depiction. But hasn’t the whole “clever joke on a Birkin, the most sought-after bag in history” thing been done to death?
What say you, snobs? Egregious (and annoying) copy or sassy prank?
