How to Authenticate CHANEL

It’s safe to say that Chanel is the brand at the top of wish lists across the world.

A Chanel bag is a true luxury and each handbag is created to reflect the highest-quality craftsmanship. Chanel is one of the most expensive designers in the fashion industry, and those prices just keep going up. For instance, the Chanel “Classic Flap Bag” has risen in price by over 50% in only the past few years! Chanel is a solid investment to love and enjoy today and resell in the future.

Because of the popularity of the brand, Chanel is one of the most popular brands to counterfeit. Unfortunately, there are numerous fake Chanel bags, shoes, clothes, and accessories floating around. Before you assume the authenticity of a Chanel bag, there are a few things you need to consider. It takes years of experience to master Chanel authentication in order to make an accurate assessment. Invest a small amount to verify your bag with a reputable authenticator like www.realauthentication.com

Lucky for us, there are a few ways to know what to look out for when shopping for Chanel from a reseller, second-hand store, an online shop, or a friend.

Chanel DAte Code and LOGO

Pay particular attention to the CC logo; the Cs should overlap appropriately, both on the hardware and on the stitched logo.

Your Chanel bag will include a serial number. Take note of this before you buy. The first numbers indicate the year in which the bag was made, beginning in 1986. This number includes digits in total.

Newer handbags will usually cover the number with a clear sticker with iridescent speckles over the number; it will be marked with an “X” to prevent tearing without damage. Authenticity cards alone are not reliable sources to determine whether your piece is authentic or not as they are effortless to copy and easily interchangeable from one bag to the next.


Inspect Chanel Stiching


Chanel bags are known for a high-stitch count that preserves their original shape for years to come. Though this can vary with age and style, a general rule of thumb is each diamond quilt should have a minimum of 10+ stitches in it. The diamond quilts should also perfectly align around the whole bag regardless of pockets, seams, or other fabric interruptions.
