Can Smart People Tell the Difference Between Real and Fake Handbags? I'm Beginning to Wonder
I spent the last two weeks traveling around Morocco and Spain, and unsurprisingly, I saw a lot of fake handbags. Sure, as a New York City resident, I see a boatload of fakes every year. Yet in Morocco I was simply taken aback by the vast inventory--faux LV slippers are de rigueur for locals--particularly for a country with very little advertising on its roadways and through its cities. (Even in Marrakesh you don't see a ton of signage.) Unlike western nations like the US or Eastern countries like Japan (or even China) there just isn't any luxury advertising. But it was in Spain that I began to truly question my conclusions on mass counterfeiting.
