Last night, while trawling the interwebs (I am like some crazed fisherman setting out my nets to see what I can haul in) I came across something so super fantastic you won't even believe your eyes. In my quest to find that Chanel bag that is pictured down there (scroll down because I can't be bothered to link) I came across this piece of genius. In fact it's not genius. It's Genius. With a capital G.
Stephanie Syjuco: The Counterfeit Crochet Project (Critique of a Political Economy). I am four years late to this party but I am still turning up. Crocheters are counterfeiting designer handbags of all the big labels: Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dolce e Gabbana, Prada, Gucci etc.
Do you know how cool this is? All my gal pals have beautiful handbags and I troll around with my vintage bags that are all dying a slow and ungraceful death. I could rock one of these crocheted beauties. Imagine their faces. GOLD! It's a statement piece and totes legitimately cool! Get the feeling me likey? ME LIKEY!
The official website is here. But don't go there without me. I want to come too.
