This year, Clare Vivier‘s neon striped clutch made the handbag designer a breakout star; after the bestselling bag went viral on Pinterest, she collaborated with Wren, among other accomplishments. Well, as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery — and that is certainly the case for her neon and tan pouch: Steve Madden has already released a knock-off look-alike and there’s an eerily similar style in Gap’s spring collection, too. Oh, and American Apparel borrowed the design of her oversize fold-over clutch.

So, can you tell, which of the above clutches is the original Clare Vivier bag, and which is the $100-less Steve Madden version?

Answer: The bag at left is  Steve Madden’s Pop-Stripe zip pouch ($78) and the bag at right is Clare Vivier’s striped clutch ($165).
