About Dior

Christian Dior was one of the most important and most successful creatives of his time. Getting there was not easy, but his belief in perfection and good design have made his name what it stands for today: Parisian haute couture at the highest level.
The expression of feminine elegance plays a major role in all designs. It was also the first of these collections from 1947, which received a large, positive response from the public and soon found its way into everyday fashion. The house soon became a first choice for the stars and starlets of the time. The “New Look” is still iconic today and stands for the time it shaped. Short jackets, narrow waists and wide skirts are the distinguishing features of the designs. One also speaks of the calyx line. The collection promised hope for a new, better time and at the same time revived familiar elements from the pre-war years. A complete success that was to have a lasting impact on women's fashion in the 1950s. In the meantime, a large number of bags have appeared in numerous colors and sizes, including particularly popular models such as:   LADY DIOR One of the most famous bags of the brand is probably the "Lady Dior" from 1994. She bears her name in honor of the then Princess of Wales, Lady Diana. It is said that this model quickly became her favorite bag after receiving a copy from the wife of then French President Jacques Chirac. The Lady Dior was designed under the direction of Gianfranco Ferré. The distinctive “Cannage” quilting is typical of them and their variants.   SADDLE BAG The Dior Saddle Bag was designed just in time for the turn of the millennium under the creative direction of John Galliano. Those who followed Sex and the City from the late 1990s onwards could often see Carrie Bradshaw carrying this bag. Its shape is reminiscent of a riding saddle and is still in production in different versions. The bag is already a popular classic today.

Dior authenticity check

You can recognize an original Louis Vuitton bag by these features.

Louis Vuitton is now available exclusively and only directly in an official Louis Vuitton store or online at www.louisvuitton.com. There are no Louis Vuitton outlets worldwide! Since the brand was founded, an item has never been reduced, a sale or a discount granted. On the contrary, annual price increases are commonplace. The only place where Louis Vuitton is still traded is like here: Secondhand.

Our personal tip for you, in addition to all of the features listed below, is the overall impression that counts. Please steer clear of Lock-Vogel offers, which offer a Louis Vuitton bag for CHF 200, which allegedly was bought new for CHF 1,500. Louis Vuitton bags do not have a great loss in value if they are clean.

The monogram of canvas is probably the best known and often the most requested Louis Vuitton pattern and material worldwide. This is a vinyl-soaked cotton fabric and not, as is often assumed, leather. Due to the coating, which has been used for years, the material is extremely hard-wearing, water-repellent and does not fear scratches compared to leather.

Original monogram canvas

  • The monogram canvas surface is matt
  • The structure of the Monogram canvas surface runs horizontally
  • The monogram of canvas is applied in stripes and runs from bottom left to top right
  • The color of the monogram of canvas varies depending on the model, age and intensity of use
  • The monogram of canvas becomes softer and more malleable over time or with use
  • The Louis Vuitton initials “LV” are always shown in full, even near the seams or on the edge. This is the case with all Louis Vuitton materials that use the initials "LV".
  • ATTENTION: Monogram of canvas that is upside down cannot be avoided with continuous canvas such as a Speedy or Keepall and is NOT an indication of a fake

 

Counterfeit monogram of canvas

  • The monogram of canvas has a very shiny or almost reflective surface
  • The overall structure of the monogram of canvas is usually too coarse or fine
  • The monogram of canvas often has irregular or blurred edges printed on it
  • The color of the monogram of canvas is usually too strong or is very yellow
  • The monogram of canvas is usually very stiff and firm even after intensive use
  • Usually the Louis Vuitton initials "LV" are cut off or not shown in full

 

original

  • The material is untreated cowhide leather, which is very light when new and darkens through use or only through daylight and develops a so-called "patina"
  • The edges of these untreated leather parts are sealed in a brown or reddish tone

Counterfeit

  • The material is mostly dyed leather or synthetic leather - this is often reminiscent of plastic
  • The sealing of the edges is often red or orange or is missing entirely

Original (picture left)

  • The embossing / stamp should occur at least once. No matter whether inside or outside. In addition to “Made in France”, there are also “Spain”, “USA” and “Italy”. The Keepall waterproof was embossed with "Made in Germany".
  • The embossing / stamp is always placed in the middle and is easy to read
  • Louis Vuitton can be seen or engraved on all fittings (metal) and is clearly legible - the zippers on vintage models are not provided with today's classic engraving, but come from the zipper manufacturers YKK or Eclair, for example
  • Most of the hardware is made of brass, which can tarnish green over time. This can easily be polished with a brass cleaning agent that is available from major retailers.

 

Counterfeits (picture right)

  • The embossing / stamp is usually placed at an angle, the letters or spaces are uneven and difficult to read
  • The paint on the fittings or hardware often flakes off. The embossing / stamp is not nicely engraved, difficult to read and very angular

 

Original (picture left)

  • The Louis Vuitton seams are always straight and at a very even distance from the grained line below the seam. The outside and inside of the seam look identical with open pockets like a Neverfull or Galliera without a closure.

 

Fake (picture on the right)

  • The seam is usually crooked and the grained line is often artificially printed in a dark color. The individual stitches are often not of the same length and different distances apart. Knots and crooked labels can also be seen.

 

From the 1980s, Louis Vuitton began (with certain exceptions) to store a serial number / data code in every pocket. This serial number / data code provides information about where and when the respective bag was manufactured. From 1990 this serial number / data code consists of two letters and a 4-digit number combination. This serial number / data code is usually in a somewhat hidden place and is sometimes almost too well hidden on certain models, such as luggage. This serial number / data code is either stamped directly into the material and highlighted in color or noted on a leather label.

The serial number / data code can be deciphered as follows:

Letters

  • made in France: A1, A2, AN, AR, AO, AS, AC, BA, BJ, CA, CT, DU, FL, FR, LW, MB, MI, NO, ND, RA, RI, SD, SL, SN, SP, TH, VI, VR
  • made in USA: FH, FF, OS, SD
  • made in Spain: CA, LB, LM, LO
  • made in Italy: SA, MA
  • made in Germany: OL

Number combination

Older models:

Letters = place of production

1st + 3rd digit = month

2nd + 4th digit = year

Newer models:

Letters = place of production

1st + 3rd digit = calendar week

2nd + 4th digit = year

DANGER: The serial number or data code should not be confused with the model number or article number used by louis Vuitton. Each bag model has a unique model number. This number usually begins with an "M", preceded by 5 numbers. This model number is not found on the bag. This can only be found on the label or invoice from Louis Vuitton. You can find this model number at www.louisvuitton.de, provided the model is available from Louis Vuitton yoke.
