Yay, we are so glad we have our first Histoire sighting!
We would have probably chosen a simpler outfit though and let the bag do all the talking! Much like the two ladies below!
Imitation has never escaped the fashion industry but then there has always been a line to draw between that which draws inspiration and that which only imitates!
Inspired nuances are good for the budget shoppers because it gives them a way to get a particular look without having to break the bank…
Below, is a Miu Miu bag on the left and a Steve Madden tote on the right. Quite similar but not identical.
But then look at these two clutches. At a glance, they are absolutely identical! The Valentino Satin Bow clutch has been very popular with A-listers this season but priced at $750.00, it does come at a hefty price! Imagine my surprise when I found the exact identical clutch at Steve Madden for a mere $38.00!!
My question to you is this: Knowing that an identical original exists, will you still go for the cheaper, ‘inspired’ one? Or would you rather find an original at whatever price range it is that you are shopping in?
Vogue India is going to be debuting with a smokin’ hot cover with Bipasha Basu in Roberto Cavalli, Gemma Ward in Valentino, Priyanka Chopra in Giorgio Armani, Lakshmi Menon in Chanel, Preity Zinta in Christian Dior, and Monikangana Dutta in Gucci!
I think Basu and Dutta totally steal the show, umm, cover! But this cover totally reminds me of the inaugaral cover of Vogue China which also had the seemingly mandatory Gemma Ward.
What do you all think?
