You might remember that while I was in France, the French police uncovered a ring of Hermes counterfeiters.
Bizarrely, while I was in Rome a similar thing happened - police in Milan seized over 40,000 counterfeit goods! Incredible, don't you think? The items, discovered in Chinatown, included Burberry and Louis Vuitton scarves, as well as various other accessories.
It just goes to show, both designers and law enforcement are deadly serious about clamping down on the sale of counterfeit goods.
