Guest Post Spotting Replica Givenchy Antigona Bag - Andrea Tiffany aglimpseofglam

Hey everyone!

Walking down the busy streets in the city, you encounter a fair amount of street vendors trying to sell you an array of random products. One type in particular that I often see are people trying to sell knockoff designer products, whether it be a fake Chanel handbag, or a copy of an Hermes scarf. Besides the ridiculously cheap prices and the fact that they are selling them on the side of the street, some are obviously fakes. But, there are some that are quite impressive. They sure have stepped up their game.

Let's try not to be so easily fooled, shall we?

Today I'm sharing with you all a guest post by Patriciah Collen from http://www.spotbags.cr/. Here she shares tips to spot a replica of a Givenchy Antigona bag.

Tips in Spotting a Replica Givenchy Antigona Bag


The Givenchy Antigona is one of the popular brands in handbags that can give any woman a breath of freshness and style in no time.

These handbags are flawless making your life easier like never before. Not just, they are classy enough to carry, but also give enough space that can fit in all the essentials effortlessly.

But, as the brand name has reached the top, more and more people are coming up with its replicas that can leave you in confusion.


So, does that mean one should drop the idea of buying a Givenchy Antigona? Well, not really, as we have some secret tips that can help you in spotting the real Givenchy.

Let’s take a look at them here!
1. Look closely at the Triangle Pad

A dissimilarity that is easy to spot is the ‘Logo Triangle Pad’. It is the leather patch that you can see right between the handles having that Givenchy logo on it.


Those fake ones will even be lacking the pointy part of the triangle pad, which must normally be placed in the mid of two handle tabs.

Moreover, the leather pads must not be too puffy or flat.
So, if you see those leather pads look weird, it is not the bag to choose.
2. Next, Comes the Logo

If you really wish to spot a false Givenchy, the logo is one of the most important things that you must see carefully. While the replicas come with a really poor quality of logo, the real one is something attractive and funky. You can easily find out if the bag is original or not, just by looking at the logo of the bag.



Another difference that you can spot easily is the metal letters in the logo. Yes, not just they will be in low quality, but also misaligned, cut poorly and placed too close together.


Even the thickness of the logo varies, which can easily be noticed.
3. Then, look at the Material and Construction

Givenchy uses genuine leathers from polished goat to cowhide, which always keep the bags in a proper shape. The real ones will be smooth, soft, flexible, and luxurious.



On the other hand, the replicas will be hard and plastic.


Besides this, the fake one would even show those rough edges, which cannot be seen in the real ones.

4. Don’t Miss Brand Stamping and Serial Numbers

The real ones show the date code format following LVMH standards. When you see the code, the first two characters denote the manufacturing location of the bag, followed by four numbers, which represent the week and the year in which the bag was manufactured.



Cross refer the date code with the seasonal specifics of Antigona. Some fake date codes are so wrong that they can even show up a different year, when the original one has not even debutant.



Even the colors tell if the bag is genuine or not. While black can come in any season, some specific colors only show up in particular seasons.


So, watch those date code and colors carefully to spot a fake Antigona.


These were some of the ways, which can help you in spotting the replica Givenchy Antigona Bag.






So, you can easily find a real one and flaunt it without any hesitation. Websites like Spotbags are a great resource for finding out what differences you can find between a fake and a real purse so do not be afraid to do research before pushing that “Buy now” button.

  5. Eeep, the font in the guest post part was so tiny I could barely read it! :( Anyway, when I was in Rome they would sell loads of fake handbags like that, they're usually pretty easy to spot but I doubt I will ever be able to afford a real one, anyway, haha. x

    1. In a way it could be seen as a form of flattery, like copying a master to learn? But either way it is sad to see a one of a kind design being replicated like that.
      Thanks for reading Kyanna, I hope you are having a great week :)
