Seeing Double: Longchamp vs. Louis Vuitton

Does this bag look familiar? I noticed that the Longchamp X Light Tote bears a close resemblance to Louis Vuitton’s Antigua Cabas GM Tote. I love this Louis Vuitton version but cannot commit to spending $810 for this; Longchamp appears to have produced a very similar version at a much better price, $355.

The particulars:
Longchamp Tote Bag X Light, $355 [Shown]
Style# 1760 427
Canvas with Leather Trim
Dimensions: 15.25 X 12.25 X 6
Offered in Aubergine, Moca, Bronze and Black

Louis Vuitton's Antigua Cabas GM Tote, $810
Style# Cabas GM
Canvas with Cowhide Trim
Louis Vuitton Inventeur Metal Label/ Removable ID Holder
Dimensions: 16.5 X 14.1 X 3.7
Offered in Beige, Pink, Red, Blue, Brun Havane

Anyone else?
