Adventures in Copyright: Navoh Bags Proenza's PS1 and Mulberry's Alexa in One Fell Swoop

We love affordable, chic handbags, and that's what label Navoh says it's all about: Faux leather handbags priced at $125 and under. But we're not okay with blatant knockoffs. We just don't get why Navoh would bother out-n-out copying Proenza Schouler's famed PS1. It's literally the same exact bag in a cheaper material, from the colorways to the hardware.

We just don't get why Navoh would bother out-n-out copying Proenza Schouler's famed PS1 for its Fall 2010 collection. It's literally the same exact bag in a cheaper material, from the colorways to the hardware.

Proenza Schouler isn't a big company--and the boys make most of their money off of their genius accessories.

So copies like this are a huge deal. And downright shameful, in our opinion.

Navoh has also done an obvious re-imagining of another hot messenger bag, Mulberry's Alexa, down to the braided handle. It's not as exact as the Proenza copy, but it's pretty close.

Really, we're shocked that Navoh left Alex Wang alone.
