how to spot fake kenzo bag

It happens all the time, you find a great deal for a ‘genuine Kenzo bag’ and quickly snatch it up, only to discover you’ve actually bought a knock-off! Spotting the real deal from a fake can be tricky, but with a bit of know-how, anyone can differentiate the genuine from the fake.

The first thing to check is the label. Genuine Kenzo bags have a distinctive logo and replica bags lettering which is subtle but clear. It should not appear to be haphazardly placed or off center. Some counterfeit bags may feature a logo that looks perfectly genuine but on closer inspection it deviates from the real thing in subtle ways – possibly more or less embossed than the real logo, or a slightly different font or colour.

Next, check the material of the bag. Authentic Kenzo bags are made with quality materials, likely to be smooth if there is fabric or leather, and a certain level of stiffness to the structure. A fake bags will often have a far lower quality of materials, often with a rough, scratchy texture visible to the touch.

Finally, have a look at the inside of the bag. Again, the material should match the real thing well, with even stitching and a strong construction. It is also worth checking for labels or other markings that are unique to the original and verifying this with a list of known genuine labels.

Aside from material, the tell-tale sign of a fake is in the details. For example, on luxury bags, the hardware – zippers, buckles and clasps – are always chosen with great attention to detail and precision. Look for pot-marks, unrecognizable silver or gold plating, or ‘brittle’ hardware that looks like it may easily snap.

The price of a Kenzo bag is another telling factor – if it is too good to be true, it most likely is. For example, if an authentic bag is sold for an incredibly low price, it is likely a fake. A little bit of detective work is essential. Watch out for any mismatched labels or tags that indicate they may not be the originals, unusual spelling or vague descriptions such a “genuine leather” as opposed to “genuine calfskin.”

In conclusion, with a little bit of know-how and a careful eye, it’s easy to spot a counterfeit Kenzo bag from the genuine one. Pay attention to the details and know that if something looks too good to be true, it probably is. Be careful out there and happy shopping!
