In what's both an EPIC FAIL and an awesome WIN, eBay's You Can't Fake Fashion bags are already a thing of the past. All gone. In a matter of minutes, in fact. Boo hoo hoo. Featuring work from heavy hitters like Anna Sui, Reed Krakoff, Peter Som, and Brian Atwood, we can't say we're entirely surprised. Now we wonder how long it will be before either: they show up on eBay at 5X the price; or the anti-counterfeit bags are counterfeited themselves. [eBay]
