    Default The Yves Saint Laurent Zip Crest Tote vs. The Mayle Billie Doux Bag

    The Yves Saint Laurent Zip Crest Tote vs. The Mayle Billie Doux Bag



    While browsing around over on Shop Bop's website, I stumbled across this new bag from Mayle. I looked at it and thought it looked eerily familiar. Hmm... where have I seen a bag like this before? Then it suddenly dawned on me. That's right, the Mayle Billie Doux Bag looks very much like the Yves Saint Laurent Zip Crest Tote (well, give or take a few little details). Coincidence? Unfortunately, it probably isn't. What is unusual, is that Mayle isn't exactly a low end designer. Yes, the bag is almost half the price of the YSL, but it's not like we are talking about Forever 21 here. I guess I would have expected Mayle to be a little bit more, um... original in their designs. I mean, the Mayle Bag even has the impression of a Y shape on the front. Oh well, at least they didn't make an exact copy of YSL's design. Let's see, just a slightly different handle here. And a different zipper pull there. And... ta-da! It's a whole "new" design!

    The Yves Saint Laurent Zip Crest Tote (pictured on the left) is available in Black or Rose. It measures 12.5" x 7.5" x 5.5" and is composed of softly textured shrunken leather. It retails for $1,195. You can find it over at Women's & Men's Designer Apparel, Shoes, Handbags & More | Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Juicy Couture, more - Saks.com.

    For about half the price, the Mayle Billie Doux Bag (pictured on the right) retails for $650. It is also a little larger and is composed of a smooth leather. It is currently only available in Black. Find it over at Juicy Couture, Seven Jeans, and More - FREE SHIPPING - shopbop.com.

    Oops, I had a typo in there. I fixed it though.

    I think the bags look very similar. I don't think it was coincidence. I agree though, the YSL looks much nicer.
