Top 5 Myths About Louis Vuitton Bags
From fragrances to jewelry to home décor, Louis Vuitton has impressed us with all that there is. However, what really sets them apart from the crowd are their high-quality, incredibly fashionable bags that are the perfect blend of class, comfort, and fashion. Their products speak class and glamor on an entirely different level that is unparalleled by any other.
However, in the field of fashion, fame doesn’t come without a price. As replicators in the market are generating and selling fake Louis Vuitton bags for the price of the real ones, a few myths have arisen that are supposedly used to identify the “real” Louis Vuitton bags. However, these myths are all that their name suggests: just some myths. This means, they’re not true and you might miss out on an original Louis Vuitton bag while following these myths.
So, here are the top 5 myths about Louis Vuitton bags that you need to be wary of:
- Louis Vuitton monograms can never be upside down and if they are, it suggests that the bag is fake.
The fact is that Louis Vuitton bags are made from a continuous piece of the material that is being used to make the bag. Therefore, after it is folded to make the back side, the front might have the Louis Vuitton monogram upright but the back might have it upside down. Such a Louis Vuitton bag can actually be an original. Here’s a bag from the authentic website of Louis Vuitton itself that presents with such a case.
2. Louis Vuitton products are only made in France.
Once again, not true. A lot of their genuine products are made in the United States of America, too. So, to dismiss a bag as not being Louis Vuitton just because it’s not made in France isn’t the smart thing to do.
3. The monogram is never cropped or cut.
While it is true that Louis Vuitton wants its logo/monogram on every piece, it’s impossible in a few cases for the monogram to not get cut owing to the designs of the bag. An example is shown below.
4. There is a model number imprinted on the inside of the bag.
The model number is not actually printed on the inside but comes on a separate card that is given to the owner at the time of the purchase. Therefore, if you’re purchasing a second-hand LV bag, looking for the product code inside the bag will do you no good.
5. An original Louis Vuitton receipt means the bag is original.
However, just as the bags can be replicated, so can the receipts. Be careful when buying a second-hand LV bag!
So, what really is the right method for authenticating an LV bag? Well, your best bet is to buy from Louis Vuitton stores or to get it checked by a professional!
