ADMJ, Accessoires de Mademoiselle

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?

  5. I like the first one with the blue trim and the Hello Kitty one. These are still pretty pricey for imitations though.

  9. ADMJ is just a poor man's Hermes. A wannabe!

  10. I don't like the wanna bes, although I realize Hermes is ridiculously expensive--I guess that's half the allure. ONE of these days I swear I will own one--even if it's 40 years from now! Haha.. I better start saving now..

  11. my sister has two white cats and an editor over at vogue japan once said they look like hello kitty! hehe
    the bags look great but i find it odd paying lots for a knockoff. if you're gonna go the knockoff route go all the way with the original's copy!
