Reader Sophie writes in to tell us about her latest shopping experience: "Dear Fashionista, My friend just bought a Vuitton fake on Canal Street - I know, I'm sorry. But when she pulled it out to show us, the plastic straps were a dark brown color. I know one of the easy ways to spot a Vuitton fake is by its straps - usually they're that light yellow color, and they never darken like actual LV leather. Did they make the strap like that so it looked more real?" Probably - the same way that when the Murakami fakes came out a few years ago, a few counterfeiters made them with deeper colored graphics, which made them look more authentic than the cheesy neon hues you'd associate with a fake Cherry Blossom bag. We wonder if they'll ever start using canvas, and not plastic, for the skin...
