Excuse me for a moment, I’m suddenly feeling quite nauseous. Based on the picture to the left, I’m sure you can all figure out why. I almost didn’t even want to post about the Juicy Couture Blue Blood Weekend Bag so that I wouldn’t have to be assaulted with its image every time I click over to PurseBlog Savvy, but I feel that it is such an egregious violation of good taste that something has to be said.
Everyone has seen the carts in the mall that sell thinly veiled Louis Vuitton knock-offs with slightly different monograms and “leather” trim that looks like its been covered in spray-tan, but I’m genuinely surprised that another high-end (or should we be calling them “high-end” with scare quotes at this point?) brand would pull the same stunt, particularly in a way that looks so unforgivably cheap.
I’m willing to entertain the idea that perhaps Juicy Couture is trying to skewer a very high-brow aesthetic and has merely failed miserably at doing so. Even if that’s the case, however, how many people had to sign off on this bag’s production before it came to store shelves, and does lawsuit-happy Louis Vuitton plan to sue them? I sort of feel like filing a lawsuit just for being required to look at this bag. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $350.
