The other day I came across this post on my new cyber-friend's blog called FASHION ME CHIC.
Proenza Shouler Versus Target
It is not news that knockoffs are a huge problem for designers. With the economy still in bad shape, knockoffs are more than ever before in demand.
The latest company in the news for its knockoff bag is Target. A bag similar to the Proenza Shouler PS1 has been spotted in some of its stores. Target and Proenza Shouler have worked together in past edition of Go International Line. This month, a few pieces of that collaboration was re-released by Target to celebrate the program' s fifth anniversary.
“So our product is in Target right now, and then this bag comes out,” chief exec Shirley Cook told the Times. “It’s just disappointing, especially from someone we worked with.”
The Target Mossimo bag retails for $34.99 while the Proenza Shouler PS1 bag retails for $1595 -$2350.
Below you can see the Target one in dark brown and the Proenza shouler in a lighter color.
Thank you FASHION ME CHIC for all the info!
