With the likes of Chiara Ferragni carrying the Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit, it’s no surprise that this particular Louis Vuitton is very popular currently as a replica bag as well! I am personally a huge fan of Chiara Ferragni and love her blog The Blonde Salad where her awesome style is showcased. Unlike Ms. Ferragni who has first and free dibs on most luxury handbags (her prominence in the fashion blogger world cannot be denied!) most ladies (and gentlemen) like myself do not have such access, so sometimes a replica bag will do for me (and many others). The replica LV Soft Lockit I purchased was of very high quality and can be described as a superfake designer bag or a counter quality replica handbag. If you examine the photographs you will see that this is one bag that is virtually identical to the original of the same make by the authentic Louis Vuitton factories. The original price of the bag is over $4,000 USD on the official Louis Vuitton boutique’s ecommerce website but I purchased the handbag for only $389 USD which is a steal if you think about it! Sometimes when I see the extremely high prices on some models like the Soft Lockit I have a feeling Louis Vuitton is really overcharging, but that may just be a matter of opinion. Anyways take a look at the pictures below and let me know in the comments whether you’d go authentic or replica for this Louis Vuitton handbag!

The handbag on the right is my replica Louis Vuitton handbag while the handbag on the left is an authentic Soft Lockit up for resale on the consignment website Fashionphile. Could you spot the fake right away or did you pause for a moment?

The logo of the replica handbag is pictured on the left while the logo stamp of the authentic is pictured on the right. The logos of both purses are well done but I have to say that if I were to judge based off this photo solely the stamp on the replica (left picture) actually looks sharper and more well done than that of the authentic purse pictured on the right.

The interior tag of both handbags. Which one do you think is the tag on the fake bag? The one on the left? No that is actually the authentic Louis Vuitton handbag’s tag. The tag pictured on the right is that of the replica bag, and as you can see it has one more detail on the stamp which is the location the handbag was produce in which is France in this case.

The interiors of the two handbags are both suede although the picture on the left which shows the authentic handbag’s interior shows a more used suede hence why it is almost slightly pilling. My replica handbag is fairly new in comparison so the suede does not show any wear at all. The interior is smooth to the touch and actually my preferred interior type for a handbag – I usually hate the cotton lining most Louis Vuitton models have and think the suede is more of a lux feel generally.

The four silver pegs at the bottom of the bag are awesome as they really do help prevent the handbag from getting dirty at all. If you own a designer handbag it is very likely that a pet peeve of yours will be the bottom getting dirty!

Lastly the back of both handbags are pictured! The back of each bag is virtually identical as well as there is nothing to differentiate between the two.

One thing I would like to note is that when you are shopping for the Soft Lockit as a replica, if you choose to do so, make sure you buy one that is a good quality replica. Most websites sell AAA handbags which are either half leather half plastic or fully plastic and it does not do any justice to the original Louis Vuitton model. The handbag I purchased is one of the most accurate Louis Vuitton replicas I have purchased yet and since it is a recent model I guess we can assume that the manufacturers are getting more and more sophisticated everyday!

Sound off in the comments below and let me know what you think of the comparison and the style of the Soft Lockit as I personally think it comes off as a love it or hate it kind of bag!

    I love the Soft Lockit! It is one of my favorites from LV’s newest collections and I like how the logo is not plastered all over the bag like their monogram pieces

    I could not spot the fake! My wife really wants this bag and I am considering just buying the fake one since I can’t see enough of a visual difference to justify the extra couple of thousands to spend on it. Maybe I am just a guy that doesn’t understand bags?
