Counterfeit Designer Logos Featured in Photo Exhibit

by T+B Blog Team on September 20, 2011

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has just ended, but it’s not too late to see some designer logos in artist Luis Gispert’s photo exhibition, “Decepción,” currently on display in New York City.

Thanks to the New York Times for bringing T+B’s attention to Gispert’s collection of photos that feature a subculture of car interiors covered in counterfeit designer logos, along with other products swathed in Burberry, Fendi, and many other logos.

Gispert told The Times, ““They’re not knockoffs of luxury brands. They’re interpretations.”

Not surprisingly, most of the owners of the items featured in the photos chose not to appear in the photographs. Take a look at a slideshow of the exhibition on the artist’s website. What do you think about this use of counterfeit products?
