FASHION REPETITION: CLASSIC LEATHER TOTE – 3.1 PHILIP LIM VS. TOPSHOP
It’s not news to see multi-chain retailers, mass-produce classic leather bags. We’ve seen it before and we’ll present another to you now; even the editorial cut looks similar if not mirror imaged. A quick game of “do you see the difference” would cease in less than three seconds, if even.
In this week’s fashion repetition: 3.1 Philip Lim VS. TopShop
This sleek 3.1 Phillip Lim bag in supple, rich leather received quite a following which prompts British multinational retailer, TopShop, to create a twin for their consumers. The original Philip Lim retails around $750, while it’s 2.0 version sells at Topshop across the nation for only $150. Talk about competition.
