Our girl J. Simpson may wear the big brands, but she’s more than happy to sell you a cheap imitation. Here’s the $750 original from Chloe

and Jessica’s (or more likely, Joe Simpson’s) production for a mere $80.

The queen of busting the fakers – counterfeit chic – points us to this video from stylewiz who interviewed New York Fashion Week attendees and asked whether their accessories were real or fake.

Incidently if you like fashion videos does a great job scouting out beauty videos every week.

Coach called fowl on Target for allegedly selling fake bags. For its part, Target maintained that the purses were real and it bought them at, “a major department store liquidation sale.” …Marshall…::Cough::…Field’s…::Cough::…( via consumerist)

Ebay’s also in hot water. Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Tiffany are sueing eBay as they believe that most of the products sold on Ebay bearing their names were fakes. In the past, Louis Vuitton had successfully sued Google for linking to sites that sold counterfeit versions of LV products. (via iamfashion) Incidently, mypoupette has a terrfic article about how to spot a fake.

Unless Neiman’s has taken to selling fakes – get a load of these new offerings from Fendi. We love this Buckle trench hat, from Silvia Venturini Fendi, the last “Fendi” designing for the fashion house, although we’d never wear this classic in the wind, much less the rain. (via blog on the cusp)

These Christian Louboutin Mohair Pumps are also real…however I think they’d look better on Elmo, and I bet he’d think they’re hilarious….(via fabsugar)
