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!

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.

Bottega Veneta opens a Maison in Beverly Hills its second in the world

The store brings this concept to life through skylights on the upper floor and a color palette of neutral, earthy tones as well as natural elements like walls and ceilings in bleached oak wood and flooring in fossil Piscina stone, Coquina stone and natural color brushed Oak wood. The space draws on Mediterranean Revival and the Southern California architecture from the early last century, inspired by the Mexican Colonial Spanish Revival style. Maier was particularly influenced by George Washington Smith, Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue and his masterpiece Austin Val Verde and Lutah Maria Riggs’s Romberg House.

“For the last several decades my eye for this style of architecture has evolved following frequent visits to places such as Santa Barbara, Montecito and Pasadena,” Tomas Maier explained. “The restraint and proportion of the minimalist Spanish Colonial architecture – the lack of color, the simple complexity of the arches, the choice of stone – all contributed to the facade design and interiors for this Maison.”

“Bottega Veneta confirms its commitment to an ambitious development in the United States, focusing on Los Angeles, where the company opened one of its first boutiques in the late seventies on North Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills,” said Carlo Alberto Beretta, Bottega Veneta CEO.

After showing men how a fine four-wheel drive is made, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has embarked on spreading its Midas touch to design a suite of elegant luggage to complement Wraith, the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever created.

Now it was not done on some temporary whim, like certain eccentric businessmen plan to rule a country. But this was done over time, with precision and over a lot of planning and research – including talking with ‘Head Butlers from some of the world’s most illustrious hotels, who offered insight into the interaction between guests and their belongings’.

A lot of attention has also been given to detail. Like, the handles have been designed to provide even weight distribution so that there is no unnecessary pressure placed on the hand. The ergonomics of luggage handling was well-studied by the ‘engineering’ team to ensure that the luggage is effortless to carry. Like the Long Weekender. The collection even uses hi-tech, military-sounding techniques like ‘a solid billet of machine polished aerospace-grade aluminium’ used in the carmaker’s brilliant Wraith model.

‘Latest technologies and materials blended with traditional crafts and techniques’ – that is the definition given for this contemporary luggage collection, which is available from Rolls-Royce Dealerships.

The freshly unveiled Tambour Blue doesn’t deviate too far from winning these accolades. The timepiece features a rich deep blue color on the dial, which is marked with the distinct back V. Available in highly contrasting brushed and polished metal finishes, the watches employ the ETA 2894.2 movement with a 42-hour power reserve. The date indicator is located between the 4th and the 5th hour marker on the right hand side of the dial. The dial is flanked by a black alligator and calf bi-material strap with blue highlights. The sapphire glass that sits atop the dial is reflection-proof, thus making reading the time a lot more comfortable at any time of the day. Last, but surely not the least, the watch is submergible up to 100 meters in water, making it durable for sports and adventure usage as well.

The Louis Vuitton Tambour Blue chronograph costs $7,700 and is expected to arrive towards the latter end of this month.
