While I’ve never been a fan of counterfeit purses, this new project makes me secretly happy they exist. On July 11th at 11 a.m. EST, eBay Fashion Vault will release their collection of 50 designer totes which take a stand against counterfeit handbags. Designers include CFDA President Diane Von Furstenberg, Rodarte, Marchesa, Foley & Corinna, Phillip Lim and more (i.e. anyone who’s anyone in the fashion world right now). The purses cost between $35 and $150, and will be available via eBay’s “Buy It Now” function—so you won’t have to worry about sniping it at the end of the auction. Now this is some fashion activism we’re truly excited for.
