Imitation Is The Highest Form Of "Flattery"

Most of you would know this by now - that the Anya Hindmarch bag which resulted in queues rivalling McDonald's Hello Kitty craze is officially sold out, as it states on the Anya Hindmarch website.

While I was out shopping at Far East on Sat, I saw not 1, not 2, but 3 people carrying the above bag. It got me a little curious, and I began to wonder if there were copies being sold. After all, fake LVs and Guccis are easily available, so why not a fabric bag?
A simple search on the Net turned up this rather surprising result .

Interestingly, I later saw this bag being sold in one of the Level 1 shops. It says, "I'm a Zinc bag" (Zinc being the name of the shop)

Rather cute eh? At least they didn't do an outright imitation. You can get it for $44.90.
