Banana Taipei: You Gotta Own It
do u know what's Banane Taipei?
There's something yellow, something chic, something that's hitting Asia with tote bags that looked like Birkins (and they have lawsuits to prove that). Hermes, a luxury French brand said these bags are infringing their trademark and copyright. However Banane Taipei denied the accusations and they're still going strong now, making waves in Asia and in the US. Who can turn away from these cute bags? They are relatively cheaper, they're eco-friendly, they're handmade (yes! only 6 bags are produced in an hour), they're created by a group of Taiwanese teenagers who love fashion and found a way to let everyone enjoy a Birkin without paying a hefty price for it. A cult fashion hit.
And I say before Hermes wins the lawsuit, you better get a Banane Taipei bag now before it's gone.

Now that you have seen the story of how a bag became a fashion cult hit in Asia (and other countries) you'd be asking me, WHERE CAN I GET ONE TOO? the answer is easy yet tough. Banana Taipei Malaysia sent me pm one day asking me to review the bag. First question in my mind was, what is Banana Taipei? and why people are going crazy over it. I googled and ran through websites, blogs and even online shops selling these bags. Some are originals and some are questionable (beware!). Finally by the end of my research, I have become a Banana Taipen fan. I got to have one. For reasons such as I can't afford a Birkin, I wanted to support the craze, I wanted to own something everyone loves, I wanted to be in the in-crowd showing off my Banana Taipei. Heck even the name is so cute. Whatever the reason is, I wanted one and so I finally receive my bag by courier a few days ago.
