Quick alert to let you know that the new Hermes 2010 design "FAIRYTALES" is being faked. Hermes seem to have underestimated the demand for this particular design and the fakers have jumped right in to fill the supply gap. So be VERY CAUTIOUS about buying this design via Ebay.
Hard to tell from full scarf photos but close-ups of the fakes show very sketchy detail when compared to the real design.
Look at Babar the Elephant. He should be wearing a nice plaid suit with bold, light outlined squares. The fake has blobs at the intersections of these lines making it look more like a spotted material.
I am currently having difficulty loading photos into guides. I will add photos here just as soon as this problem is resolved.
ASSUME THAT ALL NEW DESIGNS HAVE BEEN FAKED.
And be warned.... the fakes come in a "Seller's Pack" with box, ribbon, "store tag" and what could look like a genuine invoice........
There is only one reason that they are producing these fake packages..... to fool you out of your money! Here is a direct quote from the replica manufacturers:
Replica Hermes Scarf size :90cmX90cm
the colour as the photo.
one Super replica quality.
this Replica Hermes Scarf You will get is same as the picture
This Hermes Scarf comes with original edition box,ribbon.and copy of the genuine receipt from an official Hermes store.
(The BOLD in the above is mine.....notice it says copy of a genuine receipt.....G.)
Proceed with extreme caution if someone is showing you a receipt which is in Hong Kong Dollars.
(BUT please do note that there is at least one very reputable Ebay seller in Hong Kong.... trendyground2009 who regularly lists good condition and genuine vintage scarves.)
Have a look at some of my other guides via this Fake Hermes - Index.
Great if you click on the YES button below now .... thanks!'
PS: I have just looked in the Chinese Warehouse .... they now have THE FULL 2010 CATALOGUE available as "superior quality replicas". The only good news about this is that there is a fourfold increase in their prices, so possibly not quite so attractive to bulk resellers now. G.
