Replica handbags are imitations of branded bags and purses, which look exactly like the original products and it is quite difficult to differentiate between them. These replicas are often less expensive and cost just around twenty percent of the original and use different materials but may look just as good as the real handbag.
Brands like Coach, Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Gucci and Prada are some of the most imitated designer brands. The replicas of these handbags can be found on many online websites, stores and flea markets like Chinatown in New York.
Many fashion conscious people feel that buying replica handbags is a better way to keep up with the latest trends because it is a way to save money and they are also easily available in the market.
Buying replicas is also a more practical option since handbags keep going in and out of trend and are released every season. This makes it impossible to spend thousands of dollars every other month just to stay up to date and it isn’t possible to buy each one of them.
There are two types of replica handbags. The first type looks exactly like the original and is difficult to distinguish, while the second is similar to the designer bag but not exactly the same. The second kind can also be called a ‘copy’ of the designer handbags.
A complete imitation is considered illegal due to copyright infringement and for this reason most of the replica handbags are manufactured in countries like China, Korea and Japan.
