Fakes



As much traveling as I do in Hong Kong and Asia, I am inundated with offers to buy fakes. Sometimes, I admit, I take advantage-- mostly because I'm really cheap. I'd love to have a closet of Lacoste shirts for instance, but at $75 a pop, I'm not likely to have more than one. So fakes offer an accessibility that the real goods don't. I like this satirical take on the fake designer bag. What is even funnier here is that these fake bags (all cotton, reversible) are actually make in limited editions! Designed by Zinoo Park for his "Truth and Irony" series.

actually, what's crazy is I had this idea about 4 years ago. I clearly did nothing with it but someone brought me a fake LV from NY and I wanted to take a black sharpie and graffiti FAKE all over it. I should have.

I love the fact that they are made in limited editions.
