Twitter Users Discuss Design Similarities Between Guess & Telfar Handbags

Roomies, when it comes to Black-owned luxury, you can’t go down your timeline without seeing someone counting down the days until the next Telfar ‘Shopping Bag’ release. The bags are so in demand that they normally sell out within minutes after they drop! If you’re lucky like me, you might have secured a bag or two. While many are loyal to the brand, another company is trying to persuade their customers to shop with them at affordable prices.

Today on Twitter, there has been quite a conversation about fashion brand Guess after they came out with their line of handbags that are very similar to the design of Telfar. According to Paper Mag, Guess is currently selling the leather ‘Embossed Logo G-Tote’ in multiple sizes and colors at a low price of $78 to $95, compared to Telfar’s bags which range from $150-$257.

Although Guess doesn’t have the bags on their website, customers can purchase the styles through third-party retailers like Hudson’s Bay, Macy’s, and Dillard’s. Now yall know you can’t do anything without Black Twitter giving their opinion. Many feel as though Guess is heavily inspired by the Black-owned brand.

One Twitter user wrote, “Why didn’t Guess reach out to collab with the makers of Telfar?!” Another tweeted, “Guess has always mimicked other brands’ purse designs. It isn’t new… But the Telfar is really ridiculous.”

Telfar wasn’t the only brand that Twitter users compared Guess’ designs to. They also brought Prada into the conversation as Guess has a ‘Little Bay Shoulder Bag’ that retails at $68.00, which seemingly resembles Prada’s ‘Re-Edition 2000 Nylon Mini Bag’ that cost $795.

Roomies, what do y’all think?
