Is J.Crew knocking off Celine?

As you know I'm a die hard J.Crew fan so when I was browsing the new arrivals I came across the Tillary tote and thought wow that is cute but it totally reminds me of another bag. I kind of let it go but it kept bothering me so as I was browsing the other bags J.Crew offers it dawned on me that they all look similar to some Celine bags!

Take  a look below...




Is it just me or do these bags look similar? Is J.Crew following the popularity of Celine and creating more affordable versions for the every day girl?
The J.Crew bags all come in a little over $300 while Celine bags are well over $1000. What do you think? Do you like the J.Crew or Celine bags better?

I will admit I love the Celine bags but they're not in my budget right now and the J.Crew Tillary bag is pretty cute!

  1. I thought the same thing when I saw the Edie too! I don't really like designers knocking off other designers, but it can be hard to resist a low price!

    p.s. I'm actually thinking about the Nano now - Celine bags are too cute!

  2. I love the J Crew bags. Yes, they are clearly very inspired by Celine, and the Celine bags are lovely, but most normal people will never be able to buy a Celine bag. I don't mind J Crew making designer looks that are accessible to everyone.

    I love the Tillary bag and have been thinking about getting it for a while!
