I was at the mall the other day and stopped by the local leathergoods store. They don't sell any well-known brands, but they had lots of stuff thatwas clearly insipired by Mulberry bags and they had a few "Birkins" in diffrent kind of leathers and several colors. The bags were pretty pricey, in the $400-1000 range. I did ask a friend of mine that's a lawyer and according to her it's not illegal, since they're not claiming that the bags are Hérmés or Mulberry, and the bags are probably not mirror replicas of the real thing. What are your thoughts on this? Personally I would not spend $1000 on a "Birkin" when I could get an authentic Mulberry, Gucci, Prada etc. for the same price.
