The 7 Most Common Mistakes People Make When Trying to Spot a Fake Louis Vuitton Online

September 4, 2017

Today I authenticated 3 Louis Vuitton Speedies for customers. All three of them were fake and my customers had no clue.  Rather than get an authentication before they bid, they bought the bags (for hundreds of dollars each) and then luckily decided to reach out to me during their 48 hour return window.  While I was quickly able to determine their bags were without a doubt fake, the customers were shocked, angry, relieved – you name it.

Authenticating Louis Vuittton is a valuable skill to have and one I have been fortunate enough to become, dare I say an expert at.  Before I had kids studying Louis Vuitton was a hobby of mine.  I had several handbags that I purchased at the store and one Saturday afternoon I was on ebay and came across a vintage trunk that was in my price range.  The economy wasn’t great and luxury goods were moving so I was able to win this trunk for under $1,000!  I became enthralled by the history of this 100 year old trunk and set out to find as much as I could about it.  Not only did I find out that I was the proud owner of Emily Vanderbilt’s trunk I also instantly became a passionate collector.
