It's a good day for tofu here on Fashionista. Besides discussing the kangaroo leather at Adidas, we got word from reader Wendy, who noticed something odd about The New York Times, and their super-fun piece on Hogan's Guitar Handbags: "The ponyskin Chrissie -- which the Times says is a tribute to Chrissie Hynde -- looks gorgeous. Too bad the formerly leather-pants-wearing Hynde is now a PETA activist!" Ah well. The singer did used to wear those leather pants, so a bag in her old-school homage seems reasonable - especially when it looks great, and especially in a story where a choice line "puts the muse in music." Still, if The Pretender's star really offended by a misappropriation of patent leather, here's a suggestion: Chrissie could stage a protest in front of their Soho store... wearing her own cloth handbag, of course. Her actual accessory can inspire a new Hogan fabric line for Spring, which will hopefully wind up with another cool Times write up. Bonus: If it's a cloth bag from Hogan we'll actually be able to afford it.
