The late Coco Chanel once said that counterfeit was the highest form of flattery. But nowadays, it’s far too easy to find counterfeit for two of the hottest brands.
For this reflection on counterfeits and its negative impact on the fashion industry, my Creative Studio worked on a second tribute project in 2019. This time, I decided to pay tribute to the magnificent Supreme and Louis Vuitton collaboration.
This chair has been restored and painted with the most iconic streetwear colour. I attached that fake bag onto the chair as a reflexion of the french ‘savoir faire’.
Entirely handmade in my Creative Studio, I focused on the right colour and perfect object that reflect this collaboration between Supreme and Louis Vuitton.
Through this project, I wish to highlight how easily counterfeits can destroy designers’ creation. It took less than 5 minutes and $30 to purchase this bag online and have it shipped to us from China. It is unfortunate how easily anyone can have access to fakes.
I believe that what makes a product a beautiful artefact is: its design and its quality.
