I spent some time trawling the new Nicolway shopping centre in Bryanston recently and made a rather startling discovery, the hand-bag above. This is a fake, an illegal rip-off of the Mulberry Bayswater. I know this because the branding on the leather swing-tag is wrong, as is the logo, colour and very obviously, the price. Not to mention the fact that Mulberry has no distribution clannels in South Africa. Sempre is selling this Mulberry knock-off, and a heap of others, at discount prices. Now, I’m no expert in the field of counterfeit, but something about this feels wrong. Especially given the fact these bags are being sold in a new high-end mall.
What are your thoughts? Is this legal? Let me know.
