How To Spot A Givenchy Antigona Knockoff Or How To Choose A Great Givenchy Antigona Replica!

Categories:Other Brands

The Givenchy Antigona knockoff is one of the most popular handbag styles from this brand and whenever a bag rises to stardom more and more replicas show up. Also, if you need to choose between Givenchy Antigona Medium vs Small, let me try to help choose the best size for you.

How To Spot A Fake Givenchy Antigona Bag

After noticing that many of you ladies are interested in this Givenchy replica bag, I decided to make a “How To Spot A Fake Givenchy Antigona” guide with lots of pictures to get my point across. Here are the essential elements you should check for this bag if you want to protect yourself from fake Givenchy bags!

First of all, let’s start with the construction of this bag. The Givenchy Antigona is meant to be a structured tote, so this goes for  as well. A good Givenchy bag replica should be able to stand on its own, so if the leather is too soft or slouchy and the bag loses its shape easily, then it’s a bad copy. This applies to the Givenchy Antigona medium smooth leather tote and the Givenchy Antigona Small Sugar Goatskin Satchel Bag as well, this is a structured tote no matter the leather type.

Then there’s another major giveaway that makes most Givenchy Antigona knockoffs easy to spot. It’s what I call the “logo triangle pad” – the leather patch that’s right in between the handles and that has the metal Givenchy logo on it. The pointy part of the triangle pad should be placed in the middle of the two handle tabs but let’s say this is not so obvious for an untrained eye. What is actually more important in my opinion is that the leather pad shouldn’t be neither too flat nor too “puffy”. I think these are the best words to describe it, I hope you girls can get what I mean. I have to say, I’ve seen some Givenchy knockoff bags with really flat triangle leather pads and they looked awful. Here are two examples that prove my point:

There’s another major flaw that many Givenchy knockoffs have and that is a really poor logo. You can easily notice that if you pay a bit of attention. For most Givenchy replica bags the metal letters in the logo are either misaligned, poorly cut, put too close together or they have different fonts or thickness. Just look at the photo below: notice how the “G” is much thinner than the “N” or the “C”?

Here is a clear photo with the original logo so that you study the font, the thickness of the metal letters and the space between them closely:

The handles of the Givenchy Antigona tote are tubular, pretty thin and stiff enough to stand on their own in a U-shape. If they are flimsy, then the leather/material used for that Givenchy fake bag is not the good type.

Givenchy Antigona Knockoff Handles


Look at the handle tabs/holders – first of all, check their shape and also the stitching. The first leather patch should be rounded at the bottom, tubular and not too wide and the second handle base has four corners at the bottom. The handles should have tone-on-tone, clean, sturdy stitching.

Now look at the two leather tabs on the bottom of the bag. First of all, they should both have the same size, obviously. They should neither be too wide not too thick. And again, look at the stitching and see if it’s uniform and clean. The stitching should be ON the base tabs, not around them. This is one of the most common flaws Givenchy fake bags have and an easy way to spot a fake Antigona bag.

Just like in the case of the handle holders and the base pads, the shoulder strap should also have just the right width. The thickness of the Antigona’s shoulder strap is great because it’s neither too slim not too thick (so the width should be medium-sized), so it feels really comfortable on the shoulder. The two metal buckles on the shoulder strap can’t be moved and they only serve decorative purposes.

It’s not true that the Givenchy Antigona inside should always feature black fabric lining no matter the color of the exterior like some people claim. For some colors Givenchy uses beige canvas lining, like the one you can see below. What is true though is that the color of the lining should not match the color of the exterior of the bag unless it’s the black Antigona! If we were to make a Givenchy Antigona vsPrada Saffiano, I think the Givenchy Antigona inside would lose because it’s not very luxurious. But anyway, if your Antigona has a different type of material in the interior, then it’s probably a replica Givenchy bag.

Now let’s focus on the interior leather tag with the words “GIVENCHY MADE IN ITALY” heat-stamped on it that should be placed right under the zippered pocket. The stamp should be centered and clear and the leather flap should have clean edges. Just like in the case of the metal letters, the stamp logo should also be aligned and the letters should not be so deeply embossed into the leather that they become almost impossible to read. The same font used for the metal logo should be used for the interior logo.

Why Choose A Classic Fake Birkin Bag Instead Of Going The Extra Mile

Categories:Other Brands

We’ve seen some really good replica Hermes bag reviews lately – the beautiful fake Birkin bagin Ostrich leather from UbGallery.co and the black replica Birkin bag from PurseValley.cn. Still, I think it’s time to see some bad Hermes replica bags as well. These reminders are very good because this is how you train your eyes to recognize the bad fakes. It’s also a good occasion to see what are some of the most common flaws a fake Hermes bag will have.

As a reminder, some of the most common ways to spot a fake Birkin bag are to check the stamp, the engraved belt, the shape, the stitching, the lock and the key. But I’m sure that those of you who have more knowledge about the Birkin bag know that there are many other details that make the Birkin what it is, the Holy Grail of luxury handbags.

First of all, do I really need to tell you that a real Hermes Birkin bag will never come cheap? This is the kind of designer bag that doesn’t lose its value in time, so even if it’s old and used, it’s still going to cost a lot. For example, there is a seller on eBay who has listed two Hermes Birkin bags under the name of yuko0702. The seller is listed as top-rated seller and has 99.7% Positive feedback. The seller claims that the bags are authentic and yet one of them costs $100 and the other one $720.00. It is clear that these bags are not really authentic. You should be very careful when it comes to listings like this because no matter how tempting it is, you can be sure those bags are fake.

At the same time, I doubt that those who are very detail-oriented would ever buy a $200 replica. These are the people I wrote the post on custom-made fake Birkin bag for. Of course there’s going to be a big difference between a handstitched replica and a machine-sewn Birkin!

How A Bad Fake Hermes Bag Looks Like

Here are some bags don’t even fall under the category of a fake Birkin bag if you ask me. They are so far away from the original design that they should be considered Birkin dupes at most even though they have a stamp or an engraving. These are the kind of replicas that should cost under $100 and you should never pay more than that for a fake Hermes bag like this.

Rare Hermes Birkin Bags – Should You Get A Replica?

I would recommend you to avoid buying extremely rare or exotic replica Hermes bags unless you are positive they are really good copies. Just think of it this way: how could a crocodile-embossed fake Birkin bag that costs $300 ever look like an authentic Birkin that costs over $10,000? Just try to keep it real.

This Exotic Hermes Birkin Bag Is $432,000

The Himalayan croc Birkin with diamonds is the perfect example of why you shouldn’t go the extra mile sometimes. The authentic is priced at the exorbitant price of $432,000 (!!). So no matter how good a replica is, you just can’t expect it to look like the real deal. And probably no one is going to believe you are wearing a real Birkin either because let’s face it, how many people actually have this kind of money? The bag is extraordinary but I for one have come at peace with the fact that I will never afford something like this.

And now here are some replicas for comparison:

This Fake Birkin Himalayan with Diamonds is £400

Oh, and there’s another problem here. Let’s say that the replica looks amazing and that it could actually pass off as authentic. But are you sure you are able to pull off wearing it? I don’t want to offend anyone, but this is an important question if you want people to think you are wearing a real Birkin. So could people ever believe that you are wearing a bag that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars?

Fake Birkin Bag – Common Is Not Bad!

This is exactly the reason why I usually recommend you girls to choose a classic fake Birkin bag. This means:

1. Choosing popular Hermes Birkin colors like black, gold, etoupe or orange H
2. Choosing a common type of leather like Togo, Clemence or Epsom
3. Choosing a common size like 30 or 35 cm because you’re likely to find more replicas

I know that having something more special makes anyone feel good but it’s just not the safe choice when it comes to replica bags in general. Unless you are willing to spend a few thousand dollars on a handmade fake Birkin bag. That’s the only situation where you can actually hope for your Hermes replica Birkin bag to look almost perfect.
