Separated At Birth #14 – Louis Vuitton Ailleurs Cabas PM & Kate Spade Wish You Were Here Small Coal

April 16, 2011

The moment I walked past Kate Spade, I stopped dead in my tracks. I knew where I had just seen something else that was very, very similar. From the Louis Vuitton’s S/S11 collection comes the Louis Vuitton Ailleurs Cabas PM (USD1430), depicting illustrations painted by British artist Pippa Cunningham and then adapted into totes, a scarf, a towel and a pareo for the collection.

From Kate Spade’s S/S11 collection comes the Kate Spade Wish You Were Small Coal (USD275), which depicts a chillingly similar scene on the tote, inspired by a box of vintage postcards found while shopping at flea markets.

And though there are obvious differences in terms of price, size and make of the bag, you can’t deny that for something that’s Separated At Birth these two bags can be literally considered peas from the same pod. What do you think? More importantly, which do you prefer?

Love the packaging but the pricing is just exorbitant! The brand should aim to be competitive with the pricing...

No for nail polish. The pricing is daylight robbery for a mild 13 ml bottle.

Nope, never. $70 for a nail polish? Nah, that $70 is going towards my bags or perfume fund.

I think that the new logo and brand identity is better. Not only it's simpler, the streamlined logo design...
