Fake fight: Coach sues Target
Some see imitation as a sincere form flattery. Coach, the luxe handbag giant, does not.
The bags in question resemble Coach's Ergo line, which is marketed as ergonomically correct, as well as its Signature patchwork bags.
Now I like cheapo fashion as much as the next girl, but this case seems pretty clear-cut to me.
Coach isn't crazy expensive -- if you shop smart. It's worth paying a little more for quality. And Target bags, which aren't that cheap to begin with, always feel too much like the pleather couch at a college frat house.
Besides, both the Ergo and Patchwork designs are pretty ugly. Why fight over fug?
What's your two cents?
