Fake Fendi

06/18/2004

sex_and_the_cityWas watching Sex and the City last night. Thank you TBS! (By the way if you're looking for a quick break the TBS SITC website is lots of fun.). Interesting episode including a storyline about fake Fendi bags.

Here's the jist: Even thought it's a great deal, Carrie decides not to buy a fake Fendi bag. Why? Although most people will never realize it's not the real thing, she'll always think of it as a fake. The glitzy outside will never compensate for the false inside lining.

Got to thinking brands are like Carrie's fake Fendi. Slick ad campaigns or cool graphic logos cannot replace quality when it comes to your brand. Oh sure, some people will buy for the bargain but is it worth the reputation risk if you're positioned as high-end?

I know what you mean. There is nothing like the real thing and yes, when YOU know your buying a fake, well, you know it is but most people don't know. I found this great website about how to tell a replica Fendi bag from an authentic one and it was a life saver for me. Its at www.freewebs.com/fakefendihandbags .... There is so many fakes out there that its nice to know there is a website out there and others as well that can give you the heads up.

Well, I am looking for a Fendi Spy bag and I want it to be an authentic one. Its just 'knowing' it is the real deal like you said.
