Would You Wear: A Faux Birkin Bag?
This feisty little number from Thursday Friday offers women the chance to carry the tres coveted (and expensive!) Hermès Birkin bag at a tiny, tiny fraction of the price. Says Olena Sholomytska, one half of the design duo behind the line, “We ended up with a surreal design that references luxury but is ultimately an anti-status status symbol.” The canvas tote, screen-printed with the Birkin bag likeness, retails for around $35, and can carry anything from groceries to books — or conceal your real Birkin from purse snatchers.
