Imitation is perhaps the best form of flattery. I don’t know if Hermes is flattered but I think these bags are fun in a corky stylish way. I think Accessoires de Mademoiselle or ADMJ, a popular handbag brand in Japan and Asia took Birkin bag and modified the bag into a younger and hipper fashion. A gal pal has one and I like all the Swarovski crystals and the colors on the bag. ADMJ bags are not Hermes Birkins and these bags will never be in the same caliber but I think it’s fun and colorful regardless, not to mention quality is pretty good. The handbag on the left is an anniversary edition, which retails for about $620. The handbag on the right, which is Hermes JPG looking retails for about $530. ADMJ also offer other handbags and accessories.
I particularly like the simple beige color tote in leather shown above, which retails for about $330. The Hermes Kelly looking computer bag cracks me up. The retail price for the computer bag is about $410. Since the Japanese and moi are fascinated by Hello Kitty, I just have to show a Kitty bag in Croc, which retails for about $5000. Is ADMJ savvy for you?
