Hermes: Real or Fake Kelly?

Found this interesting video while surfing through PurseBlog. It's funny how the artisan can translate the semi-blueprint provided in Hermès website into a leather work. However, regardless of her artistic talent, casual streetwalker can still differentiate the authentic and the fake piece. But I think it's important to bear in mind that this might be the artisan's first attempt, and hence the underrated result. Who knows what may come with practice..

What strike me as weird is how the SAs praised the fake piece as beautifully made. And Claude even said something like he's impressed with the work! Well, I've never owned a piece before and my eyes are not trained that well in spotting one either.

Do you think it looks as good as the real Kelly?
