Smells Like A Lawsuit: Can You Guess Which Rain Boot Brand Is Totally Ripping Off The Hermès 'H'?
July 12, 2011
You guessed it, it’s Hunter. Both bags are sold here at Neiman Marcus.
Remember when Dooney & Bourke came out with those horrible rainbow logo purses that attempted to emulate the Louis Vuitton Murakami bag? Now, in another case of the mid-range brands attempting to complete with the untouchables, Hunter (yes, the rain boot brand) has blatantly ripped off Hermès’ signature “H” logo in their newest line of bags. Although the bags aren’t hideous, and definitely more affordable than Hermès, I wish Hunter would have really stuck to something they’re celebrated for–their rain gear.
A classic Hermès bag
Did you know Hunter also makes shoes? While the Hunter sandals are pretty cute, the Hunter ballet flats look eerily similar to a Marc Jacobs pair. While imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, nobody likes a repeat copycat.
