Can you spot the difference between a real and fake designer bag?
Many of us can’t afford to fork out the cash to buy a brand new, real luxury handbag. The average Chanel bag costs around £3,000-£5,500, a price reserved only for the super-rich. While it is possible to find discounts on goods online, many bags found online are in fact cheap fakes. So how can you tell the difference between a real and a fake?
Alexandra Mills, CEO of Brands Exclusive, said, “it’s much better to see the bag in person rather than online as it’s easier to spot the tell-tale signs that it’s a fake.” Some of these signs include zips and buckles that have lost their shine or a lining inside the bag that is different from that of the real deal. She also recommends that you take your time when buying designer bags to ensure that they are real, as fraudulent bags will often be found and taken offline within weeks.
