FASHION REPETITION: DIANE VON FURSTENBERG SEALED LIP CLUTCHES
Diane Von Furstenberg has been a leading name in the American fashion sphere for years. Best known for her signature wrap dress, Diane founded her company in 1972 and re-launched it in 1997. Based in New York City, the brand had grown into an international luxury lifestyle brand with collections in ready-to-wear, footwear, swim, accessory markets, and last but not least, handbags.
This weeks fashion repetition focuses on DVF’s recognizable lip trademark. Her lip handbags have raised a movement starting from the Meatpacking District and across the globe – in less than a month after DVF’s release of her latest authentic Leather Clutch Bag, Choies follows with their own version: the Black Lip Clutch Bag with a Metallic Chain.
A fraction of the DVF’s price that retails for $365, Choies’s copycat is only priced at $30.99.
Truthfully DVF’s infamous Carolina Lips Clutch are not the first smooch novelties we have seen; it has been an editorial darling for several seasons. Lip purses have always been the ultimate conversation starters and thin metal chain and satin lining have made it a feminine staple for ladies all around in New York–especially during Fashion Week.
