It's literally a case of handbags at dawn for Balenciaga and Steve Madden as the latter is being sued for copying Balenciaga's famous Motorcycle bag.

The French fashion house filed a lawsuit in Manhattan's District Court, claiming Madden's £64 Btalia satchel is basically a cheap copy of their own Motorcycle bag, which retails at about £945.

We have to admit, the similarities are quite striking. The zipper with tassel, the cross-body strap, rectangular shape and short handles, it's all a little too sam-y.

We doubt Steve Madden was surprised by the lawsuit, he's become quite the seasoned pro at being sued.

He was taken to court by Balenciaga in 2007 for copying their lego heels, and by Alexander McQueen in 2009 for stealing their Faithful bootie design.

Somehow we're guessing he doesn't really care.
