The Together Bag

So you always wanted a Birkin, well now you can own one…. sort of. Of all the carryalls in stores, the Together Bag from Thursday Friday, a screen-printed tote featuring a likeness of Hermès’s iconic Birkin bag is one that is a favorite. Roni Brunn and Olena Sholomytska, the team behind Thursday Friday, were looking to create a bag that could be used for everything, including the groceries, when inspiration hit. “We realized that we were using an extra bag to supplement our ‘real’ bags,” Sholomytska says. “So we ended up with a surreal design that references luxury but is ultimately an anti-status status symbol.” And the Birkin references don’t stop there: in a fittingly bizarre twist, there is already a three-month waiting list. The Together bag by Thursday Friday, $35. At www.thufri.com
