Nonsense. It doesn´t effect price. Its the people who don´t have the means who buy the fakes. Wheter it be an LV bag or an Eames Chair. Many believe you need to have the bag or chair to be cool. Victims of marketing rather than appreciators of handwork. A fake is a fake and doesn´t have the same quality and hence shouldn´t have the same price.

There are a lot of things I cannot afford but I can appreciate them without having to buy a fake. I personally could never be happy knowing...
Frankly I thought it resembles a cow patty lying on a piece of metal. I was trying not to hurt feeling....whooops
Just one question. Why buy too fakes at just over 3 grand when HM are selling the real thing including Ottoman for 4800$. The fakes are worth very little on the used market whereas the HM will keep a large part of its current value.
