First Look: Thursday-Friday's Newest Totes Are Proenza Schouler-Inspired

We live for controversy.

You almost have to admire Thursday-Friday for their chutzpah. Despite a lawsuit in the past with a major designer (more on that later) the LA-based tote bag company has been churning out canvas bags screen-printed with images of “IT” bags regardless. And the latest installment, debuting yesterday, is the spitting image of a Proenza Schouler PS1 bag seen on the arms of Leighton Meester and Mary-Kate Olsen. Called the “Fest” bags, they start at $35 (as opposed to the $850 starting price tag for the Proenza bag).

After having been sued by Hermès for screen printing images of the iconic Birkin bag onto their totes last year, the brand went on to replicate copies of Chanel, Miu Miu and Balenciaga’s handbag designs a few months later. The result? A rush of people sweeping the canvas bags off the shelves and a waitlist for the Miu Miu lookalike tote.

Available in red, fuchsia, honey, orange, black and caicos blue (our personal favorite), see the slideshow above for the new “Fest” bags.

The brand has additionally launched two more styles titled “Vintage Trunks” and “Leopards” with no seeming designer ties. We’ll probably stick to the ones imprinted with our most-wanted bag but click the slideshow to see all the new Thursday Friday bags and let us know which ones you like better.

Decide for yourself what you think–is it a moral dilemma, or just democratic fashion? Just because these totes are totally copying other designers doesn’t mean they won’t sell out like hot cakes.
