Steve Madden “Studio 54″ Embellished vs Betsey Johnson Jewel Clutch
You can’t deny it – The Steve Madden “Studio 54″ Embellished shoulder bag is a copy of the Betsey Johnson Jewel Crystal Rhinestone Clutch.
Lets face it, there are two ways of look at this, either Steve Madden lacks creativity or just so happens he had the same purse-vision as Betsey Johnson – what a cowinkydink. I mean nothing is wrong with a brand occasionally inspiring their designs after another label, but when the bag looks beyond inspired and appears most obviously to be identically replicated, that’s just plain ridiculous.
Right now there isn’t a Betsey Johnson Crystal Rhinestone Clutch listed on eBay, but there are a few other styles available. Like the Heart Rhinestone Crystal version which was produced a short time after the original circular crystal design. Oh and one more thing – I am warning you the hobo-style is super heavy. So like after a long night out I will guarantee that your back will hurt the next day.
Also the similar price range is interesting. Right now the Steve Madden “Studio 54″ embellished synthetic leather (aka plastic) shoulder bag, is on sale at Macy’s department store marked down to $50.99, or you can scope out the virtual shelves of eBay to score a leather Betsey Johnson Crystal Rhinestone Clutch, on sale for around the same price.
