A few months ago we came across some super cute Thursday Friday totes that were printed with cheeky trompe l’oeil Birkins. We thought they were clever and winking and oh-so-affordable at $35 a pop. Hermès was none too pleased about the oft-backordered bags, and decided to sue Thursday Friday for copying their famed design.
