Test Your Designer Logo Knowledge

While we're not label conscious (honestly, we're not!), we tend to think we have a knack for identifying designer handbags—tags unseen. If you call yourself a fashionista, then you probably take a certain amount of pride in your uncanny ability to identify designer duds (and knock-offs), too.

What follows are seven designer handbags, each showcasing a classic monogram, logo or print that makes these pieces of arm candy instantly recognizable and highly coveted. Test your logo I.Q. and see if you can name the designer...Answers are below (no peeking!!):

Answers: 1. Fendi 2. Louis Vuitton 3. Dior 4. Gucci 5. Prada 6. Burberry 7. Chanel
oh come now - too easy.
the trick is spotting a designer's 'look'.
anyone can stick a logo on a bag (just go down 5th ave on a sunday afternoon and see all the 'originals' being hawked.
they'll even give you a nice matching cloth bag to put it in!) budget babe, you should know a designer is known by his/her style, not by initials alone!

You're absolutely right (you've actually given us a great idea for our next "challenge"...), but we think we're talking about two different things.
we dusted off an old authority on the topic of logos: No Logo by Naomi Klein, who writes "Logos, by the force of ubiquity, have become the closest thing we have to an international language, recognized and understood in many more places that English." As such, identifying the images was as much about brands as it was about design.
More on both subjects to come!
