Balenciaga Serial Number

How does Balenciaga bags’ Serial Number work? All I can say is you cannot use serial number to judge if a Balenciaga bag is real or fake any more. You can use serial number to spot a normal fake but there are many super fake out there with the correct serial number!

How to spot a fake Balenciaga?

1, the rivets – I’ve never seen any fake Balenciaga with the right cut on rivets. Balenciaga bags that were produced before 2004 don’t have rivets though.
2, the font (not the serial number) on the tag. The secret is the “d” in “made in Italy” is taller in a real bag than that in a fake bag.
3, the way Balenciaga logo is engraved on leather.

Here are some side-by-side photos of a very good fake I got from eBay and a real I bought from Balenciaga. You can see the difference. Can you spot the fake?

Reed Krakoff replica? Yes, there is! Let’s compare two Reed Krakoff Boxer 1 here!

Real lining:

Here is the essence: the font! The easiest way to tell a fake is to check the font!

Fendi Peekaboo Satchel Bag

Are you a fan of Fendi Peekaboo satchel bag? You are not alone if you like it. The bag was spotted in Gossip Girl in late 2009 and it has been seen on many celebrities.

It is kinda hard to tell what it should look like as Fendi made many styles with different lining and different badge inside.

Authentic oval horse badge inside:

Fake oval horse badge inside – the general problem is the badge is getting too close to the zipper.

Authentic square Fendi badge inside:

Fake square Fendi badge inside – you can see the badge is too close to the zipper when comparing to the authentic one.

The top tip to tell a fake: the FENDI closure!

A fake – the font is smaller so FENDI occupies 40% of the plate.

A real – the font is bigger and FENDI occupies half of the plate.
