Potion Kitchen goes.... Jacquemus?

Remember those Jacquemus Bambino bags cruising in Paris in April 2023 which made everyone wonder if they were real of fake? (actually they were fake and the 3D artist behind them is called Ian Padgham - here). So guess who cruised the streets of Downtown Beirut? Some Potion Kitchen kits a la Jacquemus. Body-Face-Hair the kits say along with Potion Kitchen logo. Well, the difference between the two is that, in the Potion Kitchen thingy you never ask yourself "are these real?" (you actually do in the Jacquemus activation). I mean I do appreciate the effort, but the fact that is like a year too late and minus the wow factor makes it sort of redundant even if technically relatively well-done.
