When Birkin is not a Birkin

What if you wish for a Birkin and you have a shy account?! Then you will love Thursday Friday's idea that will fit your bill .. tote called The Together Bag! Democratic cotton screen-printed tote featuring a likeness of Hermes's iconic Birkin bag. 

Roni Brunn and Olena Sholomytska, the duo behind Thursday Friday, were looking to create a bag that could be used for everything, even the groceries. They were using an extra bag to supplement our 'real' bags. They ended up with surreal design that references luxury but is ultimately an anti-status symbol. 

And the Birkin references don't stop there, in a fittingly bizarre twist, there is already a three month waiting list.

I love this bag and its prize of only 35$. For those who won't be bothered to wait three months here is the link thufri.com
