Stella McCartney bag FAUX Suede $1,095
Zara bag REAL leather less than $200
I love Stella. I wish more designers had such non-negotiable convictions in fashion, but with all sincerity, its hard for me to associate a higher value with an item that is synthetic over a natural leather. Stella is internationally recognized for cutting edge design and a philosophy of awareness to the environment that has transcended how consumers view high fashion. However, in hard shopping times such as these its imperative to reassure consumers. $1,095 for a faux suede bag is not reassuring.
