Deux Lux brings Bottega class to the masses

By  |  2 Comments

Take a quick look at Deux Lux’s overnight bag. Look familiar? We already know what you’re thinking – you want to scream “Rip off! Bottega Veneta should sue them!” Well, in their defense (and we’re making it a point to defend them apparently), that timeless Bottega weave has a diagonal orientation, and these ones don’t, so the mother-daughter duo behind the high-street company didn’t exactly copy Hermes’ Italian counterpart. And if BV were to sue everyone who designed bags with interlocking strips, then they’d have major trouble running after straw bag makers in third world countries.

Besides, even if Deux Lux did copy Bottega Veneta’s signature pattern, no one would care – at $83, no one would. The Luella overnighter draws inspiration from Bottega’s Italian texture and Vuitton’s French structure for a minuscule fraction of the cost. If you just want an inexpensive yet timelessly stylish sack to stash all your weekend stuff in, then snag one of these beauties on BlueFly before stocks run out.
