I saw the much maligned copy yesterday at the Benetton flagship on Stockton Street. I know I'll get stoned for this, but I actually think the canvas/crinkled patent leather combo is kinda cute (sans the UCB logo across the front though).

I agree. It's a train wreck in every way. Also, I'm not a fan of shiny crinkled plastic.

Yuck-o.
I'd like to remember Benetton for their
big and baggy Rugby shirts in the 80's - not
copying Hermes bags - and doing a bad job
at it, I might add. ;)

Well..It not a Birkin that's for sure...and it's combo just funny enough (patent with canvas and plastic) to be fun..I hope it's not expensive
