So, you have just spent a great deal of money on that precious new designer handbag. Now you want to determine the authenticity of your new fashion bag. This can be a little bit tricky, but if you know the basics, you will be able to spot a fake in a minute.
High Quality Material
One of the best ways to ensure your new designer handbag is authentic is to look at the bag itself. Authentic designer handbags are extremely popular and cost as much as they do because first and foremost they are made of high quality materials.
Now take a good look at the stitching. There should be no loose or missing stitches, the color of the thread should match the main color of the bag and the stitches should be evenly spaced. If the handbag is leather, the logo should be engraved, not just printed on the leather.
Also take a look at the hardware. The hardware should all be quality weight pieces with no scratches or color variations. Many manufactures, including Gucci, Fendi, Prada, and Christian Dior, protect their hardware with a removable plastic cover that is to be removed only after it has been purchased. The brand name or logo should be engraved, not embossed or simply printed on the hardware.
Many authentic designer handbags come with a card of authenticity. An authenticity card is a little card that usually has the manufactures logo embossed on the front and has some information about the product you purchased and sometimes includes a magnetic strip, bar code.
Check for a serial number. Not all manufacturers use serial numbers, but many do.
Take The Bag To An Official Store
One of the best ways to ensure you own an authentic designer handbag is to take the bag to an official store. Employees of an official brand store can easily authenticate your new designer handbag.Specific handbag designer authenticity sections at Noble Designers:
