Dolce & Gabbana is an Italian fashion duo consisting of partners Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. A high-end luxury brand, Dolce & Gabbana handbags range in price between £325 on the low end and can go well into the thousands. Replica bags are created and sold by merchants online. Knowing the signs of a fake Dolce & Gabbana handbag will save you money and ensure you are getting what you pay for.

  1. 1

    Hold the handbag up to eye level, notice the emblem on the front of the bag. The logo font and consistency will be an obvious sign of a fake Dolce & Gabbana handbag. Authentic bags have the emblem on the zippers, handle and metal rings.

  2. 2

    Take your hands and run them over the bag. Check the material of the handbag. Low-quality material, thin and slouchy or non-leather are signs of a fake. Dolce & Gabbana handbags are made of genuine leather. Overly shiny and materials that appear too smooth to the touch are also indications of a fake.

  3. 3

    Inspect the threadwork throughout the bag. An indication of a fake Dolce & Gabbana handbag will be a black bag that has tan or other light-coloured threading throughout. Pay close attention to the pockets, how they are attached and if they are all functional; poorly attached pockets may indicate a fake.

  4. 4

    Compare the prices of authentic Dolce & Gabbana handbags on various websites. If the handbag is below £325 the bag is a fake. Dolce & Gabbana is a high-end luxury brand and the price points of their products are high.

  5. 5

    Look for a "made in China" label on the inside of the handbag. Handbags from D&G are not manufactured in China and authentic Dolce & Gabbana bags do not have this label on the inside pocket of their handbags.

Tips and warnings

  • Follow your instincts when purchasing; if the purse seems cheap or is too low a price, most likely it is a fake.
  • Do research before you purchase, so you will have an idea of current popular styles.
  • Visit luxury retailers and see D&G; handbags they are selling and the prices.
