While I was waiting for a fashion show to begin last February, I listened to a woman next to me show off her handbag to anyone who looked in her direction and talk about how it was from her soon-to-be-released line of bags that resemble the infamous canvas and leather Klein Tools bags. Well, the bags are now available; I know this because I’ve seen Fleabags, as they’re called, have been featured in both Elle and People StyleWatch. Apparently, Anne Hathaway is a fan. Pretty cute, right? Too bad they cost $440 each.
I understand that a lot of designers get inspiration from everyday items. They’ll take something simple and basic and make it well-tailored and luxe. I just can’t understand why a person would pay 400 big ones when they can get a similar, more authentic bag for less than a hundred bucks. Plus, since I’m a shortie, the ones that are longer in width than length work better for me. Thoughts?
