eBay and the CFDA present: You Can’t Fake Fashion 2012

by All Things Dark And Beautiful

eBay and the CFDA have teamed up with 50 top designers to create one-of-a-kind customized totes on sale at eBay’s Fashion Vault.

A brilliant idea, creating a hot bed of demand with exclusive statement canvas tote bags which have been transformed by the chosen 50. Designers used multiple types of media including sketches, embroidery, badges and all other sorts of trimmings to make their bag their own.

My favourite has to be the Christian Cota satchel tote.  The water-colour-like illustration is dark and beautiful and really works with the bright green statement.

Front and back = amazing.


Alongside the $200 designer totes, fashion fans can buy limited edition, $45 plain duffle, satchel, gear or bucket totes to customize themselves. I think I might have a go with the duffle or the gear!
