About ten years ago, the fashion world witnessed the invasion of the Jelly Kelly. A rubber sack molded to look like an Hermes tote, the bag was sold at Young Hollywood hangouts like Kitson and Fred Segal, and popped up on Paris Hilton and Kelly Osbourne, plus a slew of New York fashion editors. Then Hermes decided it had been unfairly copied, sued Jelly Kelly for too much money, and the whole trend dissolved rather fast.
We've never seen a Jelly Kelly since, but thanks to some kids in Japan, we've found its sequel: The Mo Faux. Created from see-through plastic and leather, the bag is shaped exactly like a Balenciaga Moto Bag, except, um, it's not.
So far, the bag is only available in two colors: hot pink and yellow. And though Americans can get a good look at the new accessories online, it seems to be a Japanese exclusive... for now.
We predict these plastic fantastics will soon appear stateside... unless, of course, Balenciaga hits them with a lawsuit, and stops the fashion madness before it becomes an international incident.
