Founded in France in 1854, Louis Vuitton is one of the oldest and most famous luxury fashion retailers worldwide. LV made its name from luxury trunks, which featured its signature canvas material. Since then, Louis Vuitton has been one of the most coveted brands globally. But when greatness and exclusivity induce demand, we all know what follows is imitation.
LV has been known to be one of the most copied brands of all time, and everything from super fake Louis Vuittons to cheap counterfeit LVs flood the second-hand market. Getting to know the brand and ensuring its authenticity through a site like www.realauthentication.com is the best way to protect yourself from falling prey to fraud.
Thank goodness there are some clear signs to look for when buying or selling Louis Vuitton from a second-hand store, an online shop, or a friend.
There is a distinctive disparity in fake logos. The letter L is always lower than the letter V. Check if the letters seem misaligned.
These stamps were marked as “Louis Vuitton Paris” for a long time, but now their handbags are made in the US, Spain, and other a few other countries. These stamps were marked as “Louis Vuitton Paris” for a long time, but now their handbags are made in the US, Spain, and other a few other countries.
In all the authentic LV bags, a heat stamp is the mark of authenticity. Unlike other top luxury brands authenticity cards that come with the purchase, these heat stamps are placed on the inside of most Louis Vuitton handbags.
Look for Louis Vuitton branded patterns in your item; the monograms, the stitching, and the details should look uniform and high quality. Look out for cheap yellow thread in the seam, and stitch counts. The monogram patterns are diagonal. The order of the strips should be a specific pattern of a circle, fleur-de-lis (the shield icon symbol of LV), and then the LV logo.
Louis Vuitton packaging is both simplistic and top-notch. LV uses various boxes depending on the type of Louis Vuitton item you’re buying. Fake Louis Vuitton will have inconsistent details. Louis Vuitton box will have a very snug fit around your item. Louis Vuitton has a distinct color palette for its packaging that most counterfeiters struggle to replicate. Keep in mind, that details will depend on the type of Louis Vuitton item you order and where it was manufactured.
The dust bag is a minimalist design. The specific design and shape depend on the type of item you order, but most dust bags come in a drawstring or envelope form, are made of a soft tan material, and are printed with Louis Vuitton in the middle. Keep in mind, that Louis Vuitton bags made before 2004 have dust bags made of beige flannel material with the LV logo and blue drawstrings.
