Can You Spot Fake Celine Bags? A Guide to Authentic vs. Replica Celine Nano Bags

celine nano fake vs real authentic vs replica

Can you spot the replica bag right off the bat? Or does it take a moment or two for you to see it?

CELINE is definitely one of the hottest handbag brands right now, and I cannot say that the obsession has passed by me personally. This handbag review will compare an authentic Celine nano bag (in the orange) to the replica Celine nano bag in the black.

The interior tags of both handbags. Some nanos (even authentic) have the imprinted tag while some have the tag with the colored labelling. The camera was a bit dark when I was photographing the tag of my replica bag so it is a bit difficult to see but the tag is done exactly the same as the authentic Celine in terms of font size and the “Made in Italy” writing.

The zippers of both handbags are pictured up close here. The authentic Celine nano had more of a gold colored zipper while the black Celine nano was more a more brassy gold. As you can see the zippers are identical, and if anything the work on the replica handbag’s zipper looks a bit more clean compared to the edges of the authentic orange Celine nano’s zipper edges.

celine nano fake vs real authentic vs replica back of bag

The back of both handbags are shown here and as you can see there is no difference. Both bags are virtually identical when you take a glance at the back with every detailed stitch showing to be well done on both.

Under each Celine nano handbag is also virtually identical. There is no difference to note here at all when it comes to real vs. fake.

The zippers of the Nano bags are also almost identical except for the actual writing of the word CELINE. On the authentic orange CELINE nano you can see the word is written upwards, while on the replica bag the words are written downwards. However font wise and in terms of the general look the bags are both the same. I could not find any other CELINE nano handbags to compare the writing with so I am not sure if the replica latch is completely incorrect or based on a different (older) design of the handles.

The interior of both of the handbags are pictured here. The authentic handbag has a smooth leather interior while the replica Celine bag has a suede interior. Once again I am not sure if the smooth interior is the standard for all Celine luggage nanos so feel free to comment if you have an authentic nano with a suede/smooth leather interior.

The logo stamp on the front of both nanos (authentic and replica) are identical. The font and sizes are both equivalent as you can see so there is no giveaway here!

Above you can see pictured the original ad on Fashionphile for the authentic orange Celine nano which I must admit is to die for (I am a CELINE fanatic!). However when you consider the price difference between the used authentic ($2,150 for the used bag) and replica bag ($359 USD) it seems that the replica manufacturers really have this design down to the tee! The key difference that I would note is the handles on the replica bag seem a bit bigger but not enough to really notice in person. I hope this guide is helpful for either a replica buyer looking to buy a copy of the Celine nano handbag (so they know how to purchase a top quality bag) as well as anyone looking to buy an authentic and wanting to make sure they don’t get duped into paying the authentic price tag for a knockoff Celine!  Feel free to comment below and let me know whether you’d go authentic or fake for this Celine nano bag!

Spot Replica Louis Vuitton Bags: Authentic vs. Replica Monogram Totally Buying Guide

authentic vs replica louis vuitton totally fake vs real lv1

Pictured is the Louis Vuitton replica bag I will be comparing to the authentic model. Please keep in mind there is a size difference between the two as one is a PM, while the other is an MM. Can you guess which is the fake handbag and which is the real?

I have compiled pictures to compare my replica Louis Vuitton Totally MM bag in monogram canvas to an original (albeit used) for resale on Fashionphile. I purchased my handbag for approximately $279 USD with free shipping included (from Designer Discreet) over 2 years ago while the handbag on Fashionophile is listed for resale at $1,150 USD. The bag’s condition is listed as:

Item Condition: Preowned – Very Good

Exterior: patina of vachetta, wear on piping trim, light corner wear, light surface wear

Handle: patina, surface wear, small marks, light water marks, light scratches

Interior: small minor marks on main section, ink marks and wear in side panel pockets

Hardware: scratches

I have really used and abused my replica Totally MM bag as I have taken it on several vacations where it has primarily served as a beach bag and has bared more than its fare share of the brunt of my travels (I am not sure about you guys but I tend to be very careless on vacations and so I never take any authentic purses with me!). Anyways the bag has held up very well considering all of the abuse it has gone through under my care and the patina has shaped out quite nicely as well. I  hope this post helps those who are looking to buy an authentic purse avoid getting a fake in its place as we all know Ebay and the online world are generally quite notorious for that, and even our most favorite of consignment shops can slip in a fake here or there (these services are run by humans after all)! Take a look at the photographs before to picture the differences between the authentic vs. replica Louis Vuitton Totally MM, and let me know whether you’d go fake or real in the comments below for this particular Louis Vuitton! I would personally go for the fake as the differences are really nonexistent between the two as shown by the photos!

This is the Fashionphile listing for the authentic purse. The handbag is selling for $1,150 USD + free domestic shipping within the United States. The bag is alright overall in terms of condition based on the photographs but definitely looks used.

Starting with a sideshot of the handbag the differences are not very pronounced between the two. The only key difference that shows through some replicas is the stitching which is not to bad on this replica bag.

The bottoms of both the bags are identical except for which pattern falls to the centre where the stitch occurs. This is where the size difference’s importance comes in as the bag on the right (the authentic) is a PM which is a smaller size so the stitch pattern falls at a different placed. If you take a look at the authentic Totally MM I have pictured below the comparison photo you will notice that the alignment is the same as the replica as both have the Logo cut through and the stitch occur between the two.

authentic vs replica louis vuitton totally fake vs real lv comparison tag

The tags of both the replica bag and the authentic bag are not too far off. Louis Vuitton’s fonts have been known to variate slightly throughout the years so the two are quite comparable. The color of the thread on the tag of the authentic purse (pictured right) is less vibrant and more dull compared to the replica and the stitching is a bit more well done I will say. In person however this difference is quite negligible as I have walked into the Louis Vuitton store many times with my replica handbag on pictured on the left.  authentic vs replica louis vuitton totally fake vs real lv comparison inside of the bag

Last but not leas is the interior of both handbags which is virtually the same (the lighting variance on both photos may make both look a bit different but I have compared the interior to my authentic Louis Vuitton handbags and it is not too far off.

Overall the canvas of the handbags are the same which I will say is one of the most important qualities you should be on the watch for if you are looking to purchase a replica Louis Vuitton bag as it is the biggest giveaway. If the replica manufacturers improve the stitching of the bag to a finer degree I personally believe it will be extremely difficult to tell between the two purses at all as that I will say is what can really separate the two when it comes to the nitty gritty details. Other than that however it is very hard for the average Joe or Jane to decipher between the two! Once again let me know what you think in the comments below!
