PS1 Vs. Joie Pepper Leather Messenger Bag

Is it just me or is this Joie Messenger Bag a total rip off of the PS1? They are so similar that it is hard to argue that one was not inspired by the other. While I don't know the dates when each was released I would bet that the Joie was inspired by the PS1. As you all know I tend to lust after bags. In particular bags I cannot afford. It is a problem. While it is nice to have a more affordable option (relatively speaking) to a totally overpriced bag I don't like the idea that I would basically be carrying a knock off. Many of us fashion lovers see fashion as art and it seems a bit wrong that you can copy someones idea, tweek it a bit and then call it your own.
