Have any of you been into the C Wonder store in Soho yet? It's AMAZING!! Coming from a girl who loves the whole Tory Burch Hollywood-Regency-meets-Palm-Beach aesthetic, finding an entire store of Tory-esque products - at a lower price point - is like Heaven on Spring Street. As much as I want to buy everything in that gorgeous store, I will start out by saying that C. Wonder has no shame in knocking-off luxury brands with the same vibe. A handbag I immediately gravitated to was a dead ringer for Longchamp's La Pliage, their skinny leather belts (and many of the accessories) are very J.Crew, and the belt buckles to go on those J.Crew-ish belts are right out of Hermes' playbook.
Personally, I love this idea. I wish I could afford a Longchamp handbag, more J.Crew and Kenneth Jay Lane jewelry, and an Hermes belt. If it takes Chris Burch (yes, Tory's ex and feeling high on spite by the looks of things) setting up all of his manufacturing in China that allows me to pay less for things I want, I'm a fan. The quality is great (definitely not the same as Hermes or Chanel) and I know it's not very pro-small business of me, but as long as no one is being harmed while making these gorgeous goods in China, it's perfectly okay with me.
