It seems that Louis Vuitton and Rolex have really cracked down hard on replicas and fakes sold in Hong Kong and Kowloon street markets. When I visited three years ago in 2005, you could purchase A+ grade replicas of either of these brands but now they’re no where to be found.
The new replica brand of choice is Tokidoki. The Japanese-inspired characters created by Simone Legno have been duplicated on everything imaginable — purses, wallets, umbrellas, shoes, and even kitchen aprons.
Replica makers try to avoid fines and being sued by using fake names like “ProSports” and “LeSports” instead of the true LeSportSac licensee. Although, if you look hard enough or are willing to ask, they’ll go to the back and show you “LeSportSac” A+ grade copies for a tad more.
The replicas found here in Hong Kong run about $10 for a purse, and $5 for a wallet but it’s hard to imagine why anyone would even care to buy a Tokidoki replica or fake. The real deal is quite obtainable at an average price of $150.
