Okay, so we know the Chanel 2.55 bag has been ripped off a thousand times on Canal Street, but we never thought a legitimate retailer would go near it

Okay, so we know the Chanel 2.55 bag has been ripped off a thousand times on Canal Street, but we never thought a legitimate retailer would go near it. We should've known better. Topshop's quilted cross body bag is made of 100% Polyurethane (google it, we did) yet still costs a kind of ridiculous $50. So, it must be especially well stitched, right? You're not paying for the creative vision, because, seriously, everything from the quilting to the shape to the white and gold chain strap and the front closure screams Chanel. It's just two C's short of being a flagrant rip-off. Why would Topshop even bother copying such an iconic and recognizable design when they have a bajillion designers at their fingertips? It's like J.Crew making a Fendi Spybag or H&M trying their hand at the Birkin. There are some things that you just don't mess with. --HAYLEY PHELAN
