If you’re pretty sick of hearing about celebrities meddling in the fashion industry, then we recommend you skip over this post Although we admit to being part of that clique, we couldn’t go without mentioning the latest handbag collection created (designed ?) by Mischa Barton. Her 14 bag collection, inspired by her love of vintage, has a moderate price range of $43 to $323. We applaud her for being one of the few celebs which aim to please the mass market. But, unfortunately the low prices seem to unsurprisingly lead to a low quality collection. We haven’t had the chance to see the bags up close, so we don’t mean fabric/leather quality. We merely feel that the designs could have gone a more innovative way. We felt that déjà vu “been there done that” when looking at the range. Take, for example, the logo of her line. It’s a clover with hearts in the middle. Really? A clover Mischa? How unique of you. It really does stand out among Hedi Klum’s clover for her jewelry line, or Muaawad’s clover for their jewelry line, or Lucky Brand’s clover logo, or marshmallow Lucky charms, or the millions of clover tattoos out there… When the logo seems uninviting, it seems to go downhill from there to us. On a brighter note, we are digging the Fina clutch.
