Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Last night, our friend showed off her new Chanel Cocoon large tote in black lambskin, which her boyfriend had gotten her on his recent trip to Beijing. Why didn't he just get it for her from one of the NY Chanel boutiques, you ask? Well, because it was a fake, and a damned great one too. The leather felt like butter and everything was where it should be, except for a few barely noticeable areas where the fake-making team had overlooked detail.

Anxious to prove our theory, we pulled up the official Chanel Cocoon collection website to check, and while finding the proof we also ran across a treasure of short video clips of Korean supermodel Daul Kim, who rocked the fashion community when she committed suicide in her Paris apartment only days ago.

Chanel has hired Daul to do little Parisian video vignettes with each of the bags from the Cocoon collection, and the entire series of brief clips is collected here, or you can just catch the highlights after the jump.

Note: no, there's no sound on these. On the website they play to a Lily Allen track.
