One of fashion’s most exciting aspects is the creative spirit of turning the ordinary into something much more, like the everyday, mundane safety pin. It’s not hard to see how they would inspire designers, especially clothing designers who use safety pins daily to drape, cinch and perfect.
It always excites me when Christian Louboutin cooks up a great (read, somewhat restrained and sophisticated) new bag, and this one is the pinnacle of unfettered chic.
Is imitation really the highest form of flattery? Or is it just plain annoying. When I happened upon Lanvin’s Sugar version of the Roger Vivier Prismick bag, I thought to myself, “Oh, Roger Vivier is reissuing my Prismick shoulder bag in the exact same color. How odd and unoriginal.”
We are getting very serious about the mini-bag trend, but don’t think it’s just for sake of carrying something cute.
