I recently travelled with a friend to Paris. I was bringing a beautifully-crafted non-designer handbag and she was carrying a Mirror Image Chanel Jumbo Flap in black caviar leather. I, and my friend, know very well that she was carrying a fake bag. While Ive heard of people getting fined and arrested for carrying fakes, I was surprised that no Fashion Police accosted us. We were dressed well, btw, though none of the rest of our outfits screamed Designer. Are you criminally liable for using a fake? How will the police know? Do they approach everyone that comes to France to authenticate their purses? I would like to know the legal implications of this. To remind my friend that no fake bag, or bag for that matter, is worth her life.
