How To Tell A Fake Givenchy Antigona Bag: It’s Not As Easy As You May Think!

Categories:Other Brands

You can already find a guide on how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag here on the blog. But sometimes spotting aGivenchy Antigona replica is really not easy because some of them look great!

How To Tell A Fake Givenchy Antigona Bag - Authentication Guide

And what makes things even more complicated is that authentic designer bags sometimes have flaws too, which can make one extremely confused.

I recently got an email from someone who had found my blog through my post on How to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag and who asked me to authenticate her bag. I have to admit this was the most difficult to authenticate Givenchy Antigona I have ever seen!

Almost everything in the previous post on how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag guide checked and it was really difficult for me to believe a Givenchy Antigona replica could be THAT good. But at the same time I just couldn’t believe that a real Antigona could have a crooked logo like that!

After all, what’s the point of spending that much money on the real deal if it comes with flaws? I mean, it’s much easier to understand that fake bags can have some flaws but it’s much more difficult to accept it when you’ve spent thousands of dollars on the real thing.

This is the Givenchy faux leather case all over again. I don’t know if you all remember, but at some point the brand released the Givenchy faux leather Antigona bag and many people were appalled by the same reasons I was. First because the Antigona is an iconic style of the brand and second because the price was over $2k. Can you believe that?

While it’s great for vegan high end bag lovers to have options as well, the real problem is not with the material but with the pricing. And the truth is that no matter if it’s made of full leather or faux leather, the price is decided by the power of the brand, not by the material it’s made from. And when a designer bag is overpriced and flawed, I think you have all the right to get upset.

How To Tell A Fake Givenchy Antigona Bag – What To Check

So if a few years ago any how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag guide would have mentioned to check to see if the bag is made of real leather or not, it’s not the case anymore. This means there are other details you need to check now if you want to learn how to tell a fake Givenchy bag.

Checking the metal logo is one of the most important steps in any guide on how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag. But what do you say when everything looks good except this particular detail? My friend had her bag authenticated not just by me but by other experts as well. She told me that one of them told her “the fakes are good, but I don’t think they’re this good”. And I agree! But at the same time it’s just not acceptable for a real Givenchy Antigona bag to have a logo that looks like this! It is seriously crooked, as you can see from the pictures.

I also noticed that the interior leather tag is too faintly embossed. Honestly, I’ve seen Givenchy replica Antigona bags with better stamps than that!

There is also a thread on the PurseForum about this. More Givenchy owners have complained that the Givenchy letters on their Antigona bags are not straight.

The bag is authentic, no doubt about that. But this doesn’t mean that my friend is feeling any better about her bag. And who could blame her, really? If someone told me they wanted to buy a replica Givenchy Antigona with a logo like this, I would advise against. So just like my friend said, I guess the Givenchy quality control is not that great.

Now look at this other Givenchy Antigona Medium gold hardware that is being sold on eBay right now. Do you think this is real? No, it definitely isn’t, so beware!

Besides the metal logo and the interior tag, don’t forget what I already mentioned in my previous post on how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag: check the base pads! The stitching should be on the leather patches and they should have the same size. For example, look at this Givenchy Antigona replica from Uncle Bench. Looks great, right?

But then when you look at the bottom you’ll easily notice the two base pads are unequal – the one on the left is wider than the one on the right. But which flaw could you rather overlook: a crooked logo or unequal base pads?

Givenchy Antigona Small vs Mini

I’ve also noticed that people are more into these two Antigona sizes because the Medium is too large for many women. So if you also need a Givenchy Antigona Small vs Mini comparison here is what you should know.

Givenchy Antigona Small vs Mini Size Comparison

Givenchy Antigona Small vs Mini Differences

Here are the main differences between the Givenchy Small Antigona bag and the Givenchy Small Antigona bag:

• First of all the dimensions, of course. Different sites show different dimensions for the Small Antigona. But the dimensions are 9.5″ height x 11.0″ width x 7.0″ depth (approximately) with 4.0″ handle drop, 9.5″ strap drop (approximately) or W28 x H23x D17cm with 62cm long strap.
• Even though there are not many style and design differences between the two, the most important difference is that the Givenchy Antigona Mini has adjustable shoulder strap and it can be worn cross-body, while the Small Antigona has shorter strap, like the Medium and cannot be worn across the body.
• The size differences between the Small and the Mini is quite substantial. For you reference, the Givenchy Antigona Mini is to the Antigona Medium what the Celine Nano Luggage is to the Mini Luggage.

There are no other notable features differences except for the strap, so the information on how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag applies to all sizes.

How To Tell A Fake Givenchy Antigona Bag – It’s Not Always This Easy!

So if you’re going to learn how to tell a fake Givenchy Antigona bag from a real one, you need to be more prepared than this. Because there are some really good replicas out there. And I’m not saying this like it’s a bad thing! But at the same time I know that for some of you it’s very important to own authentic designer bags, so I’m trying to help all bag lovers.

Luxury Chanel Easy Flap Bag For Fall Winter Collection

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Easy-Caviar-Flap-Bag

If they told you that the Chanel Easy Flap Bag is a history, then they are not telling you the truth, because when I was chatting with Junniem, she just bought one, yes and its brand-new, from 31 Rue Cambon in Paris. Sometimes a dream can come true.
Now, let’s start from the beginning…
The Chanel Easy Flap Bag was also called the Basic Flap Bag. Why? I also do not know. But it was released around April 2013 and we got the chance to feature it on our site, and we were the first blog that did so!
We compared the Chanel Easy Flap Bag with the Chanel Classic Flap Bag and concluded that the appearance was ‘almost’ identical, only that the price was so much cheaper. I almost got a heart-attack!
We also managed to show our readers the interior, which was a single flap. Another distinction is that the easy flap opens with an interior zipper, it’s actually a great design because now you know your essentials are secured.
In this post, we will be comparing the prices and we will share more information about its style and the colors.
The Chanel Easy Flap Bag is available in two sizes:

Chanel Easy Flap Bag in Medium Caviar
Style code: A67742 (old number)
Size: 9.9’ x 2.8’ x 6’ (L x W x H) in inches
2013 prices: $2,800 USD, €1800 euro’s, £1,530 GBP
2014 prices $3,100 USD, €2100 euro’s,

Chanel Easy Flap Bag in Jumbo Caviar
Style code: Unknown
Size: 13’ x 4’ x 7.5’ (L x W x H) in inches
2013 prices: $3,000 USD
2014 prices: $3,400 USD, €2300 euro’s.
And the colors: black and pink
This bag comes only in Caviar and one of our members MJ also bought it in Chanel boutique Germany. Some Chanel lovers complains that the double flap bags are too heavy, if so, then the Easy Flap Bag is the perfect substitute. Also for those that are hunting for a Chanel Flap Bag, but can’t keep up with the prices, now it’s your opportunity to hunt.
If you got any more questions, please post them in the comments section.

CHANEL EASY CALFSKIN FLAP BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Easy-Calfskin-Flap-Bag

About a week ago, we made a post about the Chanel Easy Flap Bag in Lambskin. One of our members spotted this bag in Paris and bought it for a great price. We were stunned because we thought the Easy Flap Bags were no longer in stock.

READ: Shopping with Kimberly: I found the Chanel Easy Lambskin Flap Bag

But then we received another surprising story, there is a new Chanel Easy Flap Bag released in the store and it’s not made from Caviar, but from Calfskin.

A very short summary about ‘why we love the Easy Flap Bag’ so much. Because this bag looks quite similar to the Classic Flap Bag and its much cheaper but the design is still timeless and stunning.

We got this news from Joana and she bought this bag in Athens, Greece: ‘This is not caviar, but aged calfskin. It is the easy flap Bag in aged calfskin with ruthenium hardware! I bought this bag in the medium size, in Athens, Greece only a month ago. It costs 2770 euros’.

When we heard this news we were like: ‘Are you sure it’s the easy flap bag?’

‘I am pretty sure it is. It has all the characteristics of the easy flap and I know there wasn’t only the caviar version. The price is also about the same. The first easy flap that was ever made had a slightly different look and it was made with perforated lambskin (if I am not mistaken). I believe that after the easy caviar, the easy flap design settled as it is now! And I bet we will see more leather/hardware combinations in the future.’

So tell us more about your experience. Do you love it?

‘I have to tell you that it is MOST useful and handy for a flap bag, for many reasons but mostly due to the zipper! And the medium size is divine. It has a longer chain strap so you can wear it cross body. You probably know that the chain strap of the medium classic flap is not long enough for cross body (unless you are petite). So if you want a classic flap but need to carry it cross body then you must go Jumbo size, which is big and heavy (not to mention much more expensive)! So the medium easy flap is perfect (at least for me)! I am very happy with my purchase!’

Thank you so much for sharing Joan. And oh my… anyone shopping spree? Anyone?

And oh yes, so the medium size is priced at 2770 euro with VAT right now. And one more thing, another member by its name Ps has bought one in bigger size:

SHOPPING WITH KIMBETLY: I FOUND THE CHANEL EASY CAVIAR FLAP BAG IN PARIS

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Black-Easy-Caviar-Flap-Bag

You know when the Chanel Classic Flap Bag is too expensive and you’re looking for an alternative but discovered that the Chanel Easy Caviar Flap Bag is sold-out, or no longer in production.

That sucks!

But we have some great news. Those that are still on shopping-spree in Europe, the Chanel Easy Caviar Flap Bag was spotted in Paris last week. Here’s a message from Kimbetly

‘Yes, its still available in Europe. I just bought the small black Chanel easy flap bag in Paris during the fashion week but the Chanel stores were cleaned out. I found it at the Chanel store in Galleries Lafayette. The price was 2460 euros (VAT Tax refund 410 euros)! I wanted silver hardware but they didn’t have it but the bag is beautiful!’.

What’s so special about this bag?

Well from the design perspective, the Easy Caviar bag looks the closest to the iconic Classic Flap Bag without the huge price tag.

So what do you think?

CHANEL SMALL EASY CARRY FLAP BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Small-Easy-Carry-Flap-Bag

Probably the most exciting handbag for the Spring Summer 2015 Collection, if you ask me! It’s the hottest topic at Bragmybag and we know why…

The Chanel Easy Carry Flap Bag is stunning – the beautiful CC logo inspired by the Classic Flap Bag, the chains and the detailed stitches. Though some parts are different than the Classic Flap Bag, like the short leather handle on the top, it’s so much cheaper, which makes it affordable.

And for those that are dreaming and waiting to purchase their own flap bag, this is another opportunity.

If you need the details: Everything About The Chanel Easy Carry Bag

About the sizes, we’ve showcased a lot of colors in jumbo sizes, but there is also the ‘small’ size. Obviously as an everyday bag the jumbo is a great option because it’s spacious and is able to store all your essentials. But for a smaller version, which is perfect for the evenings and times that you only want to carry mini bags, this is another choice.

Not only is the small size different in storage, but also the shape. It’s a beautiful bag though, to sling on your shoulder.
