    Default Marni Balloon Bag vs French Connection Polish Purse

    August 8, 2007

    Marni Balloon Bag vs French Connection Polish Purse
    In this day in age it is not a shocker when you hear about a lower label replicating their designs after a high-end designerís work. Forever21 is recognized for their huge selection of inspired-by handbags and even been hit with lawsuits like crazy lately from Diane von Furstenberg clothing to Gwenís Harajuku purse line. Now French Connection has been caught for inspiring their handbags after Marniís hit, the Balloon purse. The bag, which by the way retails for only $100, was produced by the fashion brand for the fashionista who loves the look but canít afford Marniís $1,600 bag.


    If I had to choose either or, my vote would go out to the Marni Balloon Bag. The French Connection one just looks cheap and tacky, especially in that black patent pvc dress. The quality just isnít there, which is to be expected for a $100 bag. I mean how long do you think this pvc plastic bag is going to last without showing some wear. If you are saying in your head "well I like the idea of saving a few bucks for a inspired-by purse," then I suggest first you check out what eBay has to offer. There are a few sellers with new and slightly used Marni Balloon's at reasonable prices.

    Price: $1,605
    *or check them out on sale at ebay

    hah! total inspiration. I love the marni bag and the other one looks really cheaply made.

    I agree the French Connection bag does look pretty cheap in that pvc shiny plastic. It looks more like a garbage bag then a purse.

    I vote for the Marni
