Good Morning America decided to create their own Kelly bag utilizing leather and the origami Kelly pattern on Hermes.com. The two bags they created were pretty bad. Thankfully when they went out and street tested their bag versus a real Kelly outside Manhattan’s Palace Hotel, the well-heeled passersby were easily able to spot the fake!

Next up was a trip to an Hermès boutique where they received ooohs and awwws from the staff, including an Hermès craftsman. Just a hunch, but I doubt the staff would have been so gracious were it not for the ABC News cameras butting in.
