Louis Vuitton and Counterfeiting

Faced with the scourge of counterfeiting, some multiply the trial, while others are trying to achieve ever more specific products in order to curb the phenomenon of copies. Unfortunately, nothing so far was not effective enough to prevent the consumer from the temptation of buying a counterfeit Vuitton, much cheaper than the Avenue Montaigne. Until Friday, April 4…

The beatings moralizing, the Vuitton preferred the fine play. Adept artistic collaborations ( the collection of bags Monogram Untitled Marc Jacobs and Richard Prince is still fresh in our minds) Vuitton decided to make of the hype and arty prevention. Thus, last Friday, the Brooklyn Museum, in a retrospective exhibition of the work of Takashi Murakami (Japanese artist who since 2002 collaborated with Marc Jacobs), guests were faced with a hard case of conscience.

Indeed, a few meters from the entrance to the museum is ticked a dozen tables where is spread out last Vuitton bags, gleaming, attractive to the authentic look and devilish course at bargain prices. The vendors are deployed all their art, baiting from the blows of prices swing all competition. What audacity to post to the entry of a Vuitton event … However, if the guests were attempted, none dared to stop, even though many were those who lowered not face all these wonders susurraient them to the adopt on the spot.

Their internal struggle ended when less scrupulous tourist came something to offer a low cost Vuitton. At the sight of his first victim, the salesman smiled and cried loudly, “Ah, you’ve been had!”, Offering him at the same time a brochure on counterfeiting and its negative repercussions. Yes, these stalls, the sellers, these prices were a farce set up by the Vuitton in order to explain to passersby – a different and relatively entertaining way – that counterfeiting was to outlaw their consumption patterns.

All who are caught that night must have a burning sense of shame, and are certainly not close again. Now, faced with this kind of rogue deals, each of us, ready to give, can not help thinking: “What if it was true … And if I was going to ridicule …”, and go his way.

Certainly, since the college Marc Jacobs for Vuitton, we can no longer sleep in our beds…
