Replica Bags in Brief: The shape of purse-on-all branding

Presenting at an International Trademark Association (INTA) conference in New Orleans on branding this week, attendee trademark professionals are challenged to consider fundamental issues facing brand owners and designers, such as: “What are you selling and who is your market?” To illustrate the point that goodwill is the foundation of great human relationships and great brands, the audience is requested to remember their favourite article of clothing.

My recollection is of a shiny, red leather purse given to me by my mother at the age of 3. The purse symbolized my evolution from toddler to “young lady.” A purse connects the person’s inside self-image with their outside image, and is a critical element of one’s personal brand.

Purse designers incorporate motifs — such as geometric shapes — that are functional and/or aesthetic. These motifs are often generally within the common vocabulary of designers. As a result, a copy is not necessarily a counterfeit, nor an infringement. The ability to draw on the toolkit of idioms, such as geometric shapes, without likelihood of confusion or fear of litigation is of interest to designers, manufacturers and retailers.

Shape is a prominent feature. Strategies for commercialization and protection of shape as a brand element take into account aesthetics, form and function. A multifaceted approach to protection exponentially increases commercial value of the purse and the design components, because of the potential to secure and protect overlapping intellectual property rights.

A geometric shape — an idiom that is within the public domain on its own — can be used effectively as a brand component, which becomes proprietary. For example. Liebeskind (the purse designer cum architect) and other architects play with shape to frame their individually identifiable construction.

Strolling down Bloor Street in Toronto’s mink mile, passing the Royal Ontario Museum, we observe the renovated extension that was commissioned from the world-renowned Toronto-based architect Frank Gehry. The towering triangular appendage hovers over the sidewalk, extending from its more traditional predecessor, a bold geometric branding statement, signifying the museum’s vision.

Geometric shapes feature prominently as elements of textile design, from dresses to accessories.

Silk scarves at the Hermes boutique on Bloor display rectangular graphic elements of artwork hanging in the shop windows. The background stories and knowledge that each scarf denotes are written up in a monograph that comes with the scarf, along with instructions for the wearer, bound in Hermes’ branded orange cover.

Rectangular-shaped patterns may represent quality and when presented in two dimensions (e.g., associated with Kate Spade and replica Miu Miu handbags) on replica handbag panels for visual, aesthetic appeal.

When these patterns are presented on fake handbag panels in three dimensions (e.g., on the Bao Bao), they can also signify functionality of the design feature. Designer Issey Miyake enjoys popularity in Palo Alto and beyond, partially attributable to having designed Steve Jobs’ black tops. Jobs, the designer’s design guru, is reported to have received hundreds of black T- shirts from Miyake.

Perhaps with a nod to Miyake’s signature black T-shirt. Randi Zuckerberg’s mom was spotted at a hotel on Bloor Street across from the ROM, carrying a Bao Bao Issey Miyake tote cheap bag. The event was, appropriately, a charitable function in support of young entrepreneurship and innovation. From the replica miu miu bag design, fascination with technology, pleats and origami may be inferred. A trademark application has been filed in Canada by Miyake Design Studio of Japan.

Functionally, the rectangular design features of the Bao Bao cheap miu miu bag are connected such that the shapes can be pushed and pressured by a user to pivot and change overall shape depending on the fake miu miu bag‘s stuffing. The simplicity of a Bao Bao replica handbag is characterized by a recurring array of triangles forming rectangles that, in the hands of the wearer, become building blocks that reshape the cheap bag from two to three dimensions.

The use of rectangles to construct a purse has occurred in the past. An example: a Canadian patent for a folding coin purse and method of making same is now a now-dead application (No. 26755515) that discloses several alternative constructions for a folding coin purse with collapsible walls, which can be mostly made of upholstery materials, reinforced leather or cloth.

The summary of the invention recites a “closed hexagon octagon container- change purse id 84870 Canada triangles flat to open oct 9 1998- expired after 10 years – Canadian designer Dave Scott Pixie Media services. By pushing the sides together, a user could form an opening in the purse for insertion of coins. The novelty and utility of the invention warranted a patent, now expired.”

The Bao Bao bag also takes on a different shape depending on what’s in it. The wearer can display a different fashion statement each day.

When empty, the bag looks flat when the mouth is closed. Rectangles of different dimensions can be formed all along the front and back panels, varying the shape of the overall purse by depositing different sized items within.

The Wolfpack’s Administrator Unites New York’s Miu Miu

Crystal Moselle’s much-lauded authoritative debut, The Wolfpack, captivated audiences not abandoned with its accountable matter—the isolated, movie-obsessed, and acutely artistic Angulo brothers—but aswell with the alpha abaft the documentary, sprung from an appropriately accurate adventitious encounter: Moselle spotted the brothers antagonism down a artery in the East Village, dressed up in Tarantino-esque attire, and artlessly approached them, ultimately apprehension the worlds independent in their family’s Lower East Side apartment.

Likewise, it was a accidental besom on the alms that spawned her aboriginal short, premiering tonight at the Venice Blur Festival. Dubbed That One Day, it’s the 12th chapter in Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales series, accomplished alums of which accept included Miranda July, Ava DuVernay, and Zoe Cassavetes. Starring 18-year-old real-life skater Rachelle Vinberg and added associates of all-girl New York aggregation The Skate Kitchen, the abstracted blur marks Moselle’s aboriginal attack into scripted work—but charcoal durably abiding in the biographical. We bent up with the administrator advanced of the admission of That One Day to allocution about award its stars, her own appearance background, and authoritative her modern-day anarchism grrrls attending accustomed in runway-fresh Miu Miu Outlet.

How did the activity initially appear about? What was your acknowledgment to accepting approached for something like this?

I met [the film’s subjects] on the train. I anticipation they were interesting, and I was affectionate of alert to them chat. They had said something about the struggles that they go through as babe skateboarders. I was like, “Would you guys anytime be absorbed in accomplishing some array of blur project?” and they were. I got their numbers—it was actual agnate to how I met the Wolfpack—and we met up and had a coffee and chatted. I was like, “Let’s potentially do some array of activity together.” I would just go and adhere out with them and accommodated their friends, and beam what they do, yield notes, blur a little bit . . . Rachelle [Vinberg] in fact opened up to me about her story, and afresh Miu Miu approached me to do a abbreviate blur [as allotment of the Women’s Tales] series, so I anticipation it would be a in fact abundant way to do a accord [with the skater girls], so I just connected blind out. I wrote the Software with this babe Shaz [Bennett]—we’re autograph ally on accession project—and it was in fact

Oh yeah. They didn’t go skating about in admirable dresses! [laughs] We added that allotment in. I added a affectionate of dreamy, bewitched allotment to it, but about [it’s biographical]. There’s a able faculty of abutment a allotment of girls in the skateboard community. If they’re at the skate park, they see a babe advancing in and she’s alone, they’ll go over and say, “Hey, appear adhere out with us!” What’s in fact air-conditioned and what I capital to accompany out is that there are so abounding films about beggarly girls, and I capital this blur to be about girls acknowledging anniversary added instead.

Do you anticipate that the assuming of women in blur is evolving, and accepting added accelerating on the whole?

I achievement so! I anticipate that’s why I wish to acquaint this story. I wish things to change, because I don’t anticipate it’s about accepting aggressive and accepting the prettiest girl; it’s about accepting who we are and allowance anniversary other.

Was the circle of appearance and blur something you had anticipation abundant about in the past? Before I formed on The Wolfpack, all I did was do appearance films and adorableness commercials.

It’s because I took all that off my reel [laughs]! It’s not in fact my artful any more, but it was in fact air-conditioned to accept such an amazing cast like Miu Miu access me and just be so abundantly accessible to what I wish to do and on lath with something that’s maybe not commonly something that would be Miu Miu; it’s my vision. You know, I apparently could do something that’s way added Miu Miu, if I had to, but they in fact let me accept final cut [and] just let me do my thing. It’s amazing to be at a point in your career area [you have] that affectionate of account and assurance as a director.

Were you complex in the skate arena at all yourself growing up?

I anachronous a few skater boys! I knew the community, but I [only] knew a brace of girls. It’s primarily bedeviled by guys, and it’s alarming and appealing arrogant the way they amusement [girls]. There aren’t any girls on the boys’ skate teams. It’s actual separated.

Miu Miu’s clothes accommodate actual by itself into the film, I think, and as you said, it does accept this in fact abstracted superior to it. I’d adulation to apprehend how you formed with the film’s stylist [Julie Brooke Williams] to actualize looks that acquainted amoebic to the accountable matter.

I’ve formed with Julie a lot. We in fact capital those scenes to feel like they’re arena dress-up, affectionate of abstracted moments area they ability be cutting the clothes in a altered way—they accept sneakers on, or [Miu Miu] is alloyed in with their own clothes. It’s about got an after-prom vibe to it. They’re chip into added areas, too, area I anticipate you wouldn’t even be able to tell, but the a lot of accessible locations are area they’re skateboarding with the dresses on. We affectionate of planned that out calm with the girls, and let them approach against what they admired and fabricated them feel good. A brace of them were models, so it was simple for them to bedrock the clothes. For Rachelle, it was funny because she hasn’t beat a dress in years, but she took on that character, and it was beautiful.

That’s interesting—you saw a about-face in the way she agitated herself?

Oh, absolutely. Rachelle’s never acted afore in her life, and we drew so abundant from her own experiences, and she took it to affection and blew us away. She in fact took it seriously, and we formed actual carefully calm on her Replica Handbags character. I was abundantly afflicted and taken ashamed by all of them, really. I’m traveling to absence this project!

I admired the use of Bikini Kill at the end of the film—

That’s accession allotment that I in fact capital to mention: I capital to acquaint a girl’s babe story. That’s why I had [DJ and Dirty Projectors member] Amber Coffman accomplish a cameo, because she sticks up for women in the music industry, and I aswell had a chat over email about that with Kathleen Hanna as well, because she let us use her song. I capital to in fact accompany calm all these elements and hidden little moments.

What abroad do you accept in the works appropriate now?

I’m apparently accretion this into a feature, and afresh I just did a activity on women ambidextrous with the baptize crisis, so I went to Kenya, Haiti, and Peru to shoot altered women in the average of the baptize crisis.

How do you like alive on appearance as against to shorts?

I anticipate it’s added about how do I like documentary against scripted. Affection or short, it’s just the bulk of time you’re alive on it. It’s still a adventure that you in fact accept in and love. I anticipate it’s nice to be able to accomplishment something quickly, but for me, I consistently wish more.

2016 Newest Prada Galleria Bag and Double Bag and New Shoulder Straps(part 2)

Every season, Prada reintroduces this bag in a variety of colors and styles based on that season’s theme. This allows countless options and reinterpretations, which makes this bag a classic, iconic wardrobe staple.

Introduced in 2013, the Prada Double Bag quickly became a favorite. Much like the Galleria Bag, the Double is reinterpreted every season in colors and fabrications based on the style of the season.


These are literally stunning!!!! Love the fact that you can add something funky to your classic bag. I always love patterned bags, but am usually afraid to spend such a large amount of money on something I might get tired of. For some reason this I can justify, because it gives the bags two different looks.

While the Galleria Bag offers a bit more structure, especially because of the full body pockets on the front and back of the bag, the Double is more minimal and lightweight. The Saffiano leather on the exterior is paired with smooth Nappa leather inside, and Prada has made the potential color combinations one of the most fun aspects of the design. While many Double Bags do offer tone-on-tone leathers on the exterior and interior, there are plenty of contrasting combinations that blend the inside and out in an unexpected way. It’s one of my favorite aspects of this bag, and I love seeing what Prada comes up with to make each design stand out a bit more than the last.

The Double Bag offers an internal divider with a flap pocket, which allows for easier organization and helps separate the bag into two main interior compartments. I love this design; the divider peeks out when you’re carrying the bag, and if you have a contrasting interior color, you can see it pop. Straps–another copycat item. Nevertheless, it’s great marketing. I can’t see buying, though, given the typical $1K price tag. I love Prada, though, and own too many bags (e.g., 2 nylon messenger, 2 Galleria and others). It’s hard to resist Prada.

I’m really excited we get to be among the first to break the news of the new Prada Shoulder Straps. Though both of the above bags offer optional shoulder straps in matching Saffiano leather, the brand now offers a way to customize your bag and show your personality with a shoulder strap that speaks to you and stands apart from the rest of the bag.


While the Galleria and Double Bags have their similarities that make them both unmistakably Prada, there are differences that could easily make one or the other better for your life. If you’re trying to decide between the two, I’m happy to help point you in the right direction in the comments below!This post was perfect! I cannot wait to get my hands on one of those straps! Will you let us know when they’re available to purchase online please? I’m so afraid they’ll sell out and I’ll miss it. Thank you for such a great post!

I have a complete love / hate relationship with Prada. I love the bags I own. I mean LOVE! And the quality of my bags are outstanding (I hear others have issues but mine are the sturdiest bags I own.)

But, I hate the lack of innovation and excitement. Any time die hard fans can’t tell the difference in your models (double zip v galleria m… Huh?) it’s not innovation or range. These bags are more of the same and a gaudy Fendi mimicking strap line isn’t the solution.

Prada has got to get out of the saffiano rut they are in. Keep some saffy bags but innovate, pleeeease. And the inside bag wasn’t it. (ugly and weird. No!) We long time fans are rooting for you. But give us something to adore and our money will be yours! Otherwise Gucci, Dior and Chanel are wooing us away.

I’m really excited we get to be among the first to break the news of the new Prada Shoulder Straps. Though both of the above bags offer optional shoulder straps in matching Saffiano leather, the brand now offers a way to customize your bag and show your personality with a shoulder strap that speaks to you and stands apart from the rest of the bag.

I’ve seen many add-on shoulder straps over the past few years and I can tell you that these Prada straps are some of the most beautiful in appearance and quality I’ve seen. I loved dressing up each bag differently with a strap, and each one transformed the bag. While a strap with oversized leather floral appliqués feels playful, the strap with Swarovski crystal embellishments makes an eye-catching statement. The new collection of shoulder straps allows you to instantly add a personal touch to your miu miu replica bag.

The straps are sold separately and come in Calfskin, Saffiano, and Nastro leather with all featuring floral patterns with a 3D effect designed from crystals, plexiglass, resin or leather. The straps are now exclusively available at the Prada Broadway and Prada 5th Avenue boutiques in New York and will be available online by the end of the month.

2016 Newest Prada Galleria Bag and Double Bag and New Shoulder Straps (part 1)

When it comes to the most iconic bag brands, Prada is easily one of the most recognizable and most widely loved. Prada replica handbags launched me into my love of designer bags; I lusted after a one of the brand’s iconic Tessuto nylon messenger bags during much of high school, and I received it was a gift when I began college. I remember feeling so enamored of my Prada bag, and even at that young age, I could tell how much higher quality it was from other brands in my collection at the time. Prada is distinguished by meticulous attention to craftsmanship and detail, and that’s still very much the case today.I have a Galleria and its my favorite bag. Extremely functional, sturdy, always looks new. I have a medium size and plan on getting a large. My only “complaint” is i’d like to see more variations of in color combinations. Follow the two tone bag and do contrasting lining.

Look, I don’t mean to be a Debbie Downer, but you’re not following the FTC protocol for sponsored posts. The FTC – Federal Trade Commission requires that any proof of sponsorship be CLEAR AND CONSPICUOUS, hence not putting the ‘sponsored post’ label in tiny font and hiding it at the end of the article. This is how it displays on the mobile site. Definitely not conspicuous. Prada has a lot of manufacturing defects. The double bag I got earlier this year fell apart after two weeks of very very careful use. The Prada store admitted they’ve been having problems with many customers. Shame because this would have been my perfect office bag.

Though Prada has evolved over time by embracing new techniques and ideas, the brand stays committed to the enduring quality of its pieces. Like many long-standing brands, the methods cheap replica handbags Prada employs have been passed down by craftsmen over the course of years, and they’re so vital and specific to the brand that they could easily be called trade secrets. Just like those crucial rules of craftsmanship, some of the brand’s designs are equally long-standing; two of the most highly sought-after Prada pieces remain the Prada Galleria and Prada Double Bags.

The Galleria and Double are classic Prada styles, and they’re very well-loved by the brand’s fans and shoppers. I certainly count myself among that group; if I had it my way, I’d own a rainbow of these bags in every size offered.

Below, we have an intimate look at two of the most iconic bags of Prada’s lineup. In addition to that, I have the pleasure of being among the first to tell you all about the new Prada shoulder straps!

Founded in 1913 by Mario Prada (Miuccia Prada’s grandfather) in Milan, Prada opened its first store in the prestigious Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. The Prada Galleria Bag was named after the store that started it all, and the bag holds a similarly foundational spot in the brand’s handbag array.

I love Blog but these “sponsored posts” are starting to be pretty nauseating. I’d love to see more genuine reviews, and real posts about new product lines — things that don’t have a marketing ploy behind them and don’t involve simply showing off bags they received for free. Prada and miu miu replica handbags  especially seems pretty desperate about “sponsoring” posts on here, which isn’t surprising considering all the negative things floating around about the quality of their bags lately. And please, people, don’t tear into me about this. The pictures are beautiful and I’m not trying to bash anyone on a personal level, just expressing my opinion…

This bag is immediately recognizable as Prada, and although some people confuse it with the Prada Double Bag, it has been around far longer. The Galleria shape is clean and sleek, typically using Saffiano leather, which is hot pressed to achieve the crosshatch texture you see and feel. Because of the longevity of Saffiano leather, Prada has used this water-repellant, scratch-resistant material for decades, and the finish style is often associated with Prada because the brand’s artisans perfected it. While the bags we photographed (as well as many of the Galleria bags on the market) are made of Saffiano leather, there is also City Calf version, which is luscious and slightly softer, which gives this bag a more laid-back vibe.

The Galleria bag holds its shape nicely and is ideal daily use, including in the office. The shape quickly turned into a brand essential for Prada, and many flock to it because of its highly functional interior structure: one large opening, flanked by two zipper-closed pockets at the front and back, all of which run the full length of the bag. The main interior compartment features three inside pockets, one with a zipper, and the body of the miu miu outlet bag can be snapped on either side to pinch the top of the bag together to further secure the interior.

Afterwards alive up from a nap, the IMG archetypal strolls through the home, garden and again to an astronomic basin cutting a printed anorak and bejeweled hot blush bristling slides while the camera follows her from the abutting down.
