>NICKY ROA: Reinventing the Hermes Birkin

August 24, 2010

>Meet my good friend Nicky. He told me a few months back about his idea of making a Hermes Birkin knock-off using muslin, I remember how excited everyone was to hear about it and of course how curious we all were to see the finished product! Although Nicky’s only made one piece so far, but he’s already gotten a TON of requests to have more made (and I being one of them)!Here is a photo of a REAL Birkin in beige. I decided to pick a color close to the shade of muslin so you can see how similar they are.And this is what Nicky created.. His muslin Birkin! Both hand and machine sewn. And he also was the one who created the patterns and all that jazz. Btw, take note of the locks he used, VERY innovative I must say!So now that you’ve seen both bags.. Isn’t what Nicky made just spectacular? I swear I can’t wait to get my hands on my own Nicky Roa creation!! The photos below are shots of the designer and his creation!Take time out to visit (read and follow) Nicky’s blog entitled NICK and the CITY, you’ll see some of his work and it’ll definitely help you get to know more about him, and maybe even get the scoop on what he’ll be creating next!De

    >whoops that ^ was me, wrong account hahaSuper cute!!! Hahaha!!!Urban outfitters had those canvas versions of designer bags last year, they had the balenciaga motorcycle bag and other bags I can't remember. I wanted to get one but they were really expensive. Around $80 (for canvas bags). But they were suuper cute šŸ™‚ they were taken down a few days after, i don't know why.
