Prada Fairy Bag Atrocity

I was looking around New Yorker the other day to buy a scarf for my Gynecology teacher (no I'm not looking for exemption on exams, it was for the Woman's Day).

Lo and behold, look at what I bumped into...


It's the knockoff Prada Fairy Bag, shameless displayed, not on a rack, but hanged on a piece of steel rod! And they are sold in the quantity of tens for around 20 euro!



And now, compare the image above with the divine, authentic arm candy...



You see, stealing people's ideas is one thing, but reproducing them in HORRIBLE quality is another! You can see immediately the simplification of the drawings - not as intricate and detailed as the original one; not to mention the tacky material (polyurethane as opposed to leather). I guess the graphic artist for New Yorker does not earn a lot does he? What's boggling me is why took so long (over a year) to copycat creative designer's ideas? You think people with eye for detail like me won't notice? HAHA

For those who're not in the know, the Fairy Collection was introduced by Prada for their Spring Summer 2008 collection. Obviously the pieces are really outstanding and unique, don't tell me you're not salivating over these nymph and fairy prints already...

Well, talk about breach of copyright...

lol that is a great bag I've never seen it before but yea China has walls and walls of fakes. Sometimes the fakes aren't even copies, they're just inspired by designs and tack on a Prada or LV sign on them!

I loved that collection, dreamy and so beyond. Pure fantasy and those patterns!

@angelus: it's okay, it just gets annoying when something obvious occurs right under my nose...

@Emz: China and the counterfeit industry. Malaysia, Asia in general aces the same problem as well.

@Ca: Yes! This collection makes everybody revere back to their Pradas
