Piracy and fake designer sunglasses are not only poor imitations of the real thing, they can cause huge economical disruption.
A report in The Times newspaper recently analysed the impact fake designer sunglasses, bags and other fashion accessories have on the economy. Intellectual property theft is estimated to cost America $250 billion a year, and maybe impact on 750,000 jobs in the States, according to The Times.
China is a hot spot for piracy and is renowned for making vast amounts of counterfeit goods, including designer sunglasses. It isn’t just designer sunglasses of course – counterfeit music and film CDs and DVDs are thought to cost around $4 billion in lost sales every year.
Buying fake designer sunglasses contributes to this trade war, encourages knock-off traders around the world and leaves you with low quality goods. If you want to buy designer sunglasses, make sure you buy from a reputed sunglasses retailer that only offers the real deal.
Counterfeit Designer Sunglasses: The Trade War
Brands like Gucci, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Tom Ford are incredibly sought after. It's not surprising that so many rip-off merchants want to capitalise on the lust for luxurious designer sunglasses. Handbags, wallets and designer sunglasses are the most copied designer goods.
The sale of knock off Gucci sunglasses and Louis Vuitton bags impacts not just on the tourist side of piracy – low quality materials are used pretending to be high quality brands like Gucci, Ray Ban or Police. The real victim is the consumer.
The global recession has made the theft of intellectual property and designer brands into something of a trade war, with China up against the West. Counterfeit goods may be more sought after in a downturn as consumers look to cut corners and save cash. But counterfeit designer sunglasses, and other luxury goods, experts warn will end up costing American and European jobs.
Nothing is Better than the Real Thing
Counterfeit designer sunglasses are not just poor quality, they support an underworld of corruption – as well as being a threat to the Western economy, designer knockoffs are often made by young children in sweatshops.
Don’t waste money on fake designer sunglasses that look and feel cheap. Instead, consider saving to invest in one quality pair of designer sunglasses that you can wear with pride and confidence; designers like Gucci, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Ray Ban spend years perfecting their designs and use high quality materials in order to give you the most perfect pair of sunglasses.
