CAIRO: Louis Vuitton’s Fall-Winter 2018 collection seemingly has a handbag quite similar in its design to one designed by Egyptian brand Okhtein.
The brand, which means “two sisters,” was launched in 2013 by Aya and Mounaz Abdelraouf and has since gone on to reach astronomical heights in its success around the Middle East.
Mounaz was quoted by Egyptian news website Scoop Empire as having thrown some major shade on Instagram, saying “When Louis Vuitton loves your design too much” with the hashtag “Anger Not Flattery!”
The Egyptian designer was comparing the LV bag to her own design.
When Beyoncé debuted a look on Instagram sporting a bag by Okhtein, the Egyptian luxury brand made waves and headlines all across the world.
The popular brand — which is sold in such high-end outlets as Bloomingdales in Dubai and Harvey Nichols in Saudi Arabia — is known for its quirky, cute and ultra-feminine bags and scarves.
Arab News tried to contact Okhtein for a comment, but could not be reached.
