How to Recognize Fake vs. Original Designer Items


When purchasing designer products from wholesale distributors or suppliers, many people ask themselves whether the items are genuine. There are a lot of replica goods and counterfeits online, so how do we spot the ones that are 100% original?

Genuine Authentic Brand is a wholesale and retailer that guarantees product authenticity and has zero tolerance towards counterfeit, fake, or replica goods. All the products that we have in our portfolio are sourced from authorized dealers and come with tags, warranty, authenticity cards, and certificates.

Still, unfortunately, the industry of producing counterfeit is growing, and people who want to buy authentic designer goods are being skeptical about who to source the products from.

This article will serve as a guide for customers and wholesale buyers who need to influence others to buy at Genuine Authentic Brand, and to assure that the products they’ll purchase from us are 100% authentic.

 

Every designer and brand that Genuine Authentic Brand has in its portfolio has its own unique characteristics and details but when it comes to recognizing fake vs. real product it all comes down to a few major representative elements – material, logo design, material, stitching, manufacturing code, and zipping.

Fake vs. Authentic Dolce & Gabbana Bags and Wallets

When it comes to Dolce & Gabbana’s original items, you can easily spot the lawlessness in the craftsmanship and design. You can differentiate authentic Dolce & Gabbana’s bags, backpacks, and wallets by replicas if you put attention to the details. The main elements that have specific and unique features are the following:

Logo design on metal plates

The element that usually reveals a Dolce & Gabbana replica is the logo design. The Italian brand’s original logo is designed with Futura – a geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Paul Renner and released in 1927. The logo is very specific and unique which makes it quite easy to recognize when someone tries to imitate it.

The logo on the original Dolce & Gabbana items is evenly designed and applied on the bags usually on the metal plates. This is an authentic Dolce & Gabbana briefcase bag available at Genuine Authentic Brand.

Very often the Dolce & Gabbana replica bags have a logo that is with another font or wrong and uneven distance between the two words and the ‘&’ sign. The original Dolce & Gabbana items have their logo applied on a metal plate with (image below) or without ‘MILANO ITALIA’ (image above), depending on the style and collection.

What important to note is that numerous replicas contain the logo ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ with ‘MILANO ITALIA’ applied below it, however, very often they feature additional words which are a sign of a fake.

This is an example of an authentic Dolce & Gabbana bag with the logo engraved on the metal plate together with ‘Milano Italia’ available at Genuine Authentic Brand.

 

Metal rivets, buckles, and zippers

The authentic Dolce & Gabbana bags are designed with metal rivets, buckles, and zippers characterized by engravings of the brand name. In comparison, counterfeit Dolce & Gabbana bags normally don’t have branded metal elements as they are very tiny and it’s costly to be engraved. This is of utmost importance when looking to purchase Dolce & Gabbana bags – analyze the metal elements of the bags as most of the original models are designed with them. There are, however, some Dolce & Gabbana models that include metal rivets without engravings, so in such cases check for other signs of counterfeit such as uneven stitching, low-quality material, or incorrect logo design.

Metal handles’ rings

Another feature that distinguishes an original Dolce & Gabbana bag from a counterfeit are the metal rings that hold the handles of the bag. It’s paramount for these details to be perfectly made in order to make the bag durable. The authentic Dolce & Gabbana bags always consist of metal rings in a form of a circle and are manufactured as a whole – without gaps. Dolce & Gabbana replicas usually have rings with gaps as these are easier to manufacture.

Form and material

What sets an original Dolce & Gabbana bag apart from all the replicas out there are the material and craftsmanship without a question. Authentic Dolce & Gabbana bags are perfectly crafted without any wrinkles or frying.

The replica bags have noticeable irregularities and inconsistencies across the overall designs, they use low-quality materials such as synthetic for the insides of the bags which is unthinkable for the original Dolce & Gabbana bags.

Fake vs. Authentic Michael Kors Bag

Michael Kors handbags are known for their high-quality materials, sturdiness, and durability. Made from real Saffiano leather, Michael Kors bags have a guarantee of a lifetime. The main characteristics that can help you differentiate an authentic Michael Kors bag from a fake one are the following:

Form and material

As Michael Kors leather bags are known for their high-quality leather material, even at first glance you can recognize the differences between a fake and genuine bag. For one, the genuine Michal Kors bags have a sturdy and firm appearance. The Michael Kors bags are durable and solid, while the replicas are poorly structured and they have a wobbly appearance, and can easily bend.

Therefore, in the authentic Michael Kors bag, you’ll immediately notice how the bag always keeps its original shape and the leather doesn’t bend easily.

Exterior and interior stitching

The stitching is another significant element that makes the authentic Michael Kors bags firm and long-lasting. Also, this element usually speaks about the authenticity of the bags because the counterfeit Michael Kors bags are noticed by loose stitching with numerous irregularities such as uneven lines.

Logo design

When it comes to the logo design, Michael Kors’s logo is recognizable for being balanced and equal in the space between the letters and brand name and surname.

The symmetrical and even distance between the letters is a characteristic of an original design. When it comes to the round Michael Kors the logo is characterized by capital MK letters which are connected in a way the angles of the letter K emerge in the letter M.

The round MK logo on the original Michael Kors items features capital MK letters which are connected in a way the angles of the letter K emerge in the letter M. This is an authentic Michael Kors handbag available at Genuine Authentic Brand.

 

Product serial number

Another thing that sets apart the original from the fake Michael Kors products, including their handbags, is the serial number of the products. Each Michael Kors bag has a serial number inside the bags. This serial number consists of two letters and four numbers which indicate the manufacturing information – factory location and date of manufacture, and additionally a number that indicated the style of the bag. The Michael Kors replicas usually don’t have such information and serial numbers which is a strong sign of a fake item.

Price tags

Lastly – the price tags. Every brand has its unique guidelines and standards when it comes to price tags. Michael Kors bags come with price tags that consist of the following information – a serial number that defines the model, color, and material of the bag, bar code, and information about the material – whether it is made of leather or fabric.

Fake vs. Authentic Celine Sunglasses

Celine’s sunglasses are one of the most popular sunglasses in the world of fashion today. They are recognized for their timeless and chic design suitable for every occasion. When it comes to eyewear, the main characteristics that can help you differentiate authentic Celine sunglasses from fake ones are the following:

Frames Screws

Authentic Celine sunglasses are characterized by impeccable quality and design. One element that is essential for the sunglasses’ design and durability are the frames’ screws. The majority of counterfeit Celine sunglasses can be immediately spotted only by looking at how the frames are connected.

One element that sets original Celine sunglasses from the replicas is the design and durability of the frames’ screws.

One element that sets original Celine sunglasses from the replicas is the design and durability of the frames’ screws.

 

Celine sunglasses are designed with small and flat almost invisible screws that are highly durable and don’t allow the sunglasses to become loose. On the other hand, the fake models are usually made with larger and bulging screws that don’t even correspond to the original design of the authentic Celine sunglasses.

Text on the outside and the inside of the temples

The last feature that can give you a hint whether a pair of Celine sunglasses are fake or authentic is the text applied on the outside and the inside of the temples. Many manufacturers of counterfeit sunglasses try to imitate the original writing on the temples, but at the end of the day, there’s always a small detail that can reveal that the item is fake.

 

Celine Blue Women Sunglasses

Some Celine sunglasses styles contain the older logo of the company which is ‘Céline Paris’. This is an example of authentic Celine sunglasses available at Genuine Authentic Brand

 

The original Celine sunglasses feature text on both temples – on the inside of the right temple are applied Celine ‘Made in Italy’ or ‘Celine Paris’, while on the left the model number and dimensions. On the other hand, on the outside on the left temple is also applied ‘Celine Paris’ or only ‘Celine’, depending on the model and style.

Other newer Celine sunglasses styles contain the new version of the company’s logo which is ‘Celine’. This is an example of authentic Celine sunglasses available at Genuine Authentic Brand.

 

It’s important to emphasize that the company has changed its name from Céline to Celine, therefore some older styles contain the old name engraved on their temples and this isn’t a sign of fake sunglasses. Fake Celine sunglasses are often recognized by the lower quality of the engravings with noticeable irregularities like shades and plastic outlines on the letters.
