    Smile The Birkin Bag by Slow & Steady Wins The Race


    Take a second good look at this, as itís not what it seems to be. I recently ran into this new clothing label Slow and Steady Wins the Race (yup, thatís its name), and I was utterly shocked at their latest handbag design, the 4 Sided Birken. No, I didnít misspell anything, Iím not making this up, and Iím not pointing fingers either, but can you all see the resemblance to the French Couture Brand Hermes Birkin? Top handle straps, secure flap, square-ish silhouette, and leather body?!

    I would never be caught dead carrying a fake and even designer inspired handbags are a big NO in my book. Clearly, the infamous Birkin inspired Slow and Steadyís version. Itís no surprise how a Hermes Birkin can cost the average person a kidney and their first born, surprisingly, the Slow & Steadyís Birken doesnít run cheap as it carries a steep price tag of $1,100! Personally, I'd rather save my pennies for years to buy the original Hermes Birkin!

    Ladies whatís your input on this bag? Do you feel like this is a designer inspired piece or a major coincidence instead? Only available in brown at the moment, shop Slow & Steady Wins The Race at: Revolve Clothing

    The bow in the front is horrid.
    But then again, I would never spend the money on a Birkin either.

    Whatever they were trying to do, it is just downright ugly!

    I'm definitely not a big fan of inspired by bags; designers should come up with their own style ideas themselves. And asking $1K+ for that is definitely crazy; for that price you can get any one of a variety of awesome, originally designed quality bags.

    What on earth were they thinking...?

    I wouldn't be surprised if they hear from Hermes on this one - looks to me like this could be getting very close to trademark infringements!

    I never have, and doubt I ever will, understand why people buy replicas or 'inspired by' bags - and I certainly wouldn't want a bar of it. I love my luxury brands, but if I couldn't afford the real thing, I would definitely either save my pennies until I could, or proudly carry a non-label bag.

    I don't like it all, it's just weird. The leather bow thing hurts my eyes and the sides also are bizarre.

    No matter who it's copying, it's just plain ugly. And the material looks horrid!
