I spent yesterday afternoon daydreaming about that stars and stripes romper from Topshop. It's an obvious knock-off of Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel vision - but at least it's not as direct a copy as this bag. Designer Marc B is selling this "Oversized Quilted Chain Clutch" on the British chain site ASOS. The website likes to sell things "in the style of" Lindsay Lohan or Sienna Miller, but it rarely, if ever, rips off something as iconic as the Chanel 2.55 bag. When we see such blatant rip-offs, we always wonder, who actually buys this stuff when there are a million adorable quilted vintage bags out there for a fraction of the price of this bad copy? But then again, I'm buying the romper, and I bet Karl would think that's a pretty bad rip-off...
