How To Tell A Celine Knockoff Bag By Looking At Just One Photo

Categories:Other Brands

I took a look at the Celine bags sold on eBay right now and I have to say I’ve come across a huge number of replicas! I don’t want to discourage you, I just want to make it easier for you to spot them.

Celine Knockoff Bag Sold on eBay – Signs

The most upsetting thing about this is that some of the Celine replica bags sold here look worse than your regular Celine bag replica but they’re 2 or 3 times more expensive. Paying $800 or less for a Celine bag may sound like an exciting thought, but don’t be quick to buy it if you want don’t to realize it was actually a Celine knockoff bag when it’s already too late.

I tried to make my how to tell if Celine bag is authentic guides as detailed as I could. But I know that some of you still feel insecure even after checking the guides. But in that case the price should get you thinking. It’s unlikely for a real Celine bag to be sold for less than $1,000 even if it’s used. The only exception is if the bag is very old or heavily used. So the price should be a telltale sign as well.

You should also take advantage of the fact that there are plenty of photos of Celine bags online given their popularity. Look for that specific model you’re interested in and see if you can find a photo on any site. If you can find only photos of replica bags online, then chances are that specific bag never existed in authentic version. Here’s an example:

Most importantly, if you don’t want to buy a Celine knockoff bag, make sure you check all the details I told you about. I thought it would be interesting to show you that some replica Celine bags can actually be spotted as faked by looking and just one photo. Disclaimer: all the photos you’ll find in this post were taken from eBay. So you can only imagine just how many Celine knockoff bags are there! I know, it’s scary!

And do you know what is the saddest part about this? Most of these sellers have 100% positive feedback. This means that the feedback is either fake or that the people they’ve previously tricked weren’t able to tell they bought a Celine knockoff bag.

If all replica bags online were advertised as such, everything would be so much easier. But unfortunately it doesn’t work that way, so you either learn to protect yourself or expose yourself to scammers. So here are some of the most common flaws a Celine knockoff bag will have. This should make it easier for you to tell fakes when you see them.

Sometimes it’s the logo, other times it’s the lining, the shape of the handle holders or even the base studs. And other times it’s all these combined if it’s a really bad replica. Just don’t get carried away by the fact that one of these is how it should, check the rest too. For example, a replica Celine bag can have a perfect logo stamp but maybe the bottom studs are crooked. You get the point.

Replica Celine Mini Luggage Lining Is Wrong

Simple rule about the lining: a Celine Mini Luggage bag in smooth leather will always have smooth leather lining. For me it was enough to look at the photo above to tell it was a Celine knockoff bag. But then you can also notice that the stamp is smudgy or that the zipper pull is too wide and rounded. This bag is being sold for $850.00.

Now look at this other Celine knockoff bag. Just because it has a tag, it doesn’t mean it’s authentic. On the contrary, just by looking at this picture you can see that the front stamp is wrong and that the front pocket stitching is too rounded. The bottom edges of the pocket stitching should be just a bit curved, not this rounded. This is being sold for $799.00.

Replica Celine Phantom Bag eBay Scam

I honestly couldn’t believe this one: this fake Celine Phantom bag is being sold for no less than $1,699! Can you believe that? This has to be one of the worst fake Celine bags I’ve ever seen on eBay! This Celine knockoff bag should cost like $100 tops and someone actually has the nerve to ask this kind of money for it! I’m in shock. If you’re still wondering what is wrong with this bag, the answer is everything. Oh my god, these people are just the worst.

And here’s yet another Celine Phantom knockoff. This one is being sold for $960.00:

I have to admit that it’s not always easy for me to spot a Celine bag replica either. And this is because some of them are really well-made. But there’s usually something that gives a Celine knockoff bag away and the only way to spot that something is to see many detailed pictures of the bag. And here is a good example:

Fake Celine Phantom Serial Number Telltale

Fake Celine Phantom – Serial Number Format Is Wrong

This Celine Phantom looks really good. At first sight it’s really hard to believe this is actually a Celine knockoff bag. But then look at the serial number. This is not the correct Celine bag serial number format. It should be like this: one letter-two letters-four numbers. A tricky one!

Now here are other telltale signs of fake Celine bags found on eBay. You can find the explanation in the photo caption:

Fake Celine Mini Luggage Base Studs

Fake Celine Mini Luggage Studs Are Crooked

Fake Celine Micro Luggage eBay

Fake Celine Micro Luggage – Shape of the Handle Holders and Stitching

Fake Celine Mini Luggage Front Logo

Fake Celine Mini Luggage Stamp Is Blurry and Sloppy

As I’ve said before, if you feel like a seller is reluctant to send more photos, stay away. Sellers have different types of excuses to explain why they don’t have the receipt, the original tags or the box. While this may actually be true for some of them, you need to know scammers use these frequently as well.

I have to say these were just a few examples to prove my point. You can find them all on eBay if you want to take a better look. Again, it’s appalling to see just how many replicas are being sold on sites that are supposed to sell authentic bags but there’s not much you can do about it.

If you thought about buying any of these replica Celine bags, beware! If you need more info, let me know!

Each nook and corner of the timepiece reflects the craftsmanship of a tailor and a watchmaker alike. The latter imitating the design sensibilities of the former.

Say goodbye to your boring stainless steel appliances, and go designer! Dolce & Gabbana now makes refrigerators, and they are truly works of art.

Dolce & Gabbana teamed up with the Italian appliance maker Smeg to produce 100 limited-edition, hand painted FAB28 refrigerators. All the designs are created by Sicilian artists and are meant to pay tribute to Italian heritage. As described by Dolce,

 “Every piece is unique, but they all tell a story consistent with our brand identity.

Each fridge retails for approximately $34,000 and will be available for sale directly from Dolce & Gabbana or through contacting Smeg. Are you still on board?? If you’re a foodie or a die-hard D&G fan, you can at least indulge in a collector’s item with a functional purpose! The collection will debut next week on April 13 during Salone del Mobile in Milan.

MARY-KATE AND ASHLEY OLSEN GIVE ELIZABETH AND JAMES A COOL, MASCULINE UPGRADE

Categories:Other Brands


A look from the Elizabeth and James pre-fall 2016 collection. Photo: Elizabeth and JamesA look from the Elizabeth and James pre-fall 2016 collection. 

Elizabeth and James has officially entered a new chapter.

In August, founders Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen announced they had reacquired the brand from licensee of eight years Jaya Apparel Group, with plans to bring design in-house to their New York City headquarters, where their luxury brand The Row is also based. And while the sisters told WWD in February that they were always heavily involved, their first two collections since the acquisition (pre-fall and fall) clearly mark a shift in the design direction. It's cooler, more masculine and of higher quality. 

Whereas the Elizabeth and James of the past relied on form-fitting dresses and feminine separates — somewhat "basic" basics — the newest collections designed by the Olsens are full of wardrobe builders in their signature effortless, luxe aesthetic. There are wide-leg crepe trousers, pleated satin skirts and many sleek maxi-skirts. Fans of The Row will be excited to find a hefty range of knitwear, from ribbed, form-fitting dresses to oversized turtlenecks. In that WWD interview, Mary-Kate Olsen said that they wanted to expand sweaters while still maintaining the strong dress, shirting and blazer categories that have been core parts of the business since the beginning. Denim has also expanded: for fall, they've designed a high-waisted "tomboy" style, cropped flares as well as a new denim and leather biker-style jackets. Overall, the fits are boxier and the pieces lend themselves to layering both within the collection and with the elegant, comfortable pieces the Elizabeth and James shopper probably already has in her closet. 

The Elizabeth and James lifestyle extends far beyond apparel with jewelry, fragrances, sunglasses and handbags, which have been designed in-house since the category launched in 2013.  The designers told WWD that they've hired new sales and merchandising teams in addition to two designers and are planning to expand the fragrance line. The Olsens' upgraded vision for the brand will be on full display when they open a dedicated store in July at The Grove in Los Angeles — the first of several new brick-and-mortar locations.
