New Louis Vuitton handbag seemingly a ‘copy’ of Egyptian company Okhtein's design

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.

Not looking back in anger: Liam Gallagher urges brother for Oasis reunion

LONDON: Singer Liam Gallagher wants to reconcile with his brother and former Oasis bandmate, Noel, almost 10 years after the famous British rock group split.
The brothers have been involved in a heated public row since Noel quit the band in 2009.
Formed in the northern English city of Manchester in 1991, Oasis dominated the British pop charts well into the next decade with catchy songs influenced by the Beatles, combined with a tough, swaggering image.
“Earth to noel...I forgive you now let’s get the BIG O (Oasis) back together...” Liam said in a tweet on Thursday evening.


After no sign of a reply from Noel, Liam tweeted on Friday: “I’ll take that as a NO then as you were.”

Noel performed the hit Oasis song ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ alone in September at the Manchester bombing tribute concert. In an interview with the BBC in November, Noel vowed never to play with his brother again.
Both brothers have pursued solo musical careers since Oasis split.
