Perhaps this gets you into our mindset right now: When reader Jessica sent us a tip saying Forever 21 had knocked off a Marc bag, our first thought wasn't "How dare they steal this man's designs!"

Instead, our outrage went something like this: "How dare they charge $30 for a cheap plastic bag that they didn't even design?! $30? Don't they know how much babysitting money that is?!" Although perhaps the inflated price tag means the shiny sack wasn't made in a sweatshop, a nice if wistful thought. Meanwhile, the original Marc bag, called "The Hudson," is sold out of Net-a-Porter, but 20% off, or $955, at eLuxury.
