Remember the Thursday Friday Together Totes emblazoned with images of the iconic Hermes Birkin? The bag generated a ton of conversation when we first wrote about it back in January, and although most of you found them distasteful, lots of women didn’t; I think I see at least one a day being schlepped through the streets of New York.
Unfortunately for Thursday Friday, Hermes also found the idea distasteful and decided to sue their pants off. Fresh off a private settlement with the French luxury giant, Racked reports that Thursday Friday is ready to take on another iconic bag with its Together Tote: The Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag. Lawyers, start your engines.
If Thursday Friday made enough money from the Hermes-aping totes to pay a settlement and still stay afloat, then perhaps this isn’t a bad choice on the part of the company. Perhaps for them, getting sued is just part of the cost of doing business, sort of like Forever 21 and all of the designers it knocks off. If that’s true, then I sincerely hope that they sell as many Chanel totes as they did Birkin totes, because they’re going to need the cash. At $90, $65 and $35 for the Super Together, Together and Pouch bags, respectively, would you buy one of these bags? If you would, get can get them via ThuFri.com.
