A new app and micro chip system means you can tell where someone bought their clothes...including if that handbag is really from Chanel.

We spend hours taking photos of gorgeous bags we spot on the street for #HandbagSpy, but now embedded chips mean you could instantly buy items you stalk someone else wearing.

A new digital initiative will take online shopping into the real world, as embedded chips containing the product information means anyone with the app can pick up the info and instantly purchase someone else's outfit.

However the chip has another use as soon everyone will know where your handbag really came from, meaning you'll be able to tell if that Chanel bag is actually a fake.

The idea comes from Awear Solutions and although it probably won't be available until 2015, it has already been tested out by DKNY, reports Fashionista

The system will take the next leap from crowd-sourced shopping sites like The Hunt, where users post photos of clothes they want, and other users help them track it down.
