Run to your nearest computer this morning because at 11am EST, eBay will put up for sale a limited edition collection of totes approved by the CFDA in its efforts to stop counterfeiting of luxury bags. The second annual You Can’t Fake Fashion Totes will retail for $45 but only in limited quantities.
Last year, the bags sold out in just 48 hours so skip your morning coffee and stay by your computer for these lovely totes. I attended the unveiling of the bags last week at Corkbuzz in Union Square and had the chance to design my very own tote. This year, the generic totes come in four fun shapes, my favorite being the satchel (top left).
Over 75 designers have also created limited edition totes that will sell for $200 each, only two of each tote by designers including Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren, Robert Geller, Tory Burch, Rachel Roy, Erin Fetherston, Peter Som, Betsey Johnson, Charlotte Ronson, The Row and Tommy Hilfiger, will be up for grabs. See below for a preview of some of the styles.
