Inspired by? Shiny black and red studded bags

We’re testing your designer bag knowledge at

You all have been so good with our ‘Inspired by’ features that we’re making it a little harder this time. Can you tell me what designer bag inspired these studded faux patent leather bags? The whole giant studs on bags was made popular when a up and coming British designer created some bags for another British brand’s Fall 2006/2007 collection.

1. What is name of the (real) bag and it’s designers’ name?

2. For extra points, can you tell me what are the differences?

P.S. If designer inspired bags are your thing, both the red and black bags are $39.99 at

    It resembles the Louis Vuitton Rivets Bag, created by Marc Jacobs.
    The LV version has more but smaller rivets and a side pocket in front. And I don’t think LV has it in red, only black and ecru

    Hmmmm…. I was thinking it was like the Giles Deacon for Mulberry bags, yes?

  • Tary says:

    I think Eliza might be right. I just check out the Giles Deacon collection and it has a lot more similarities.
