Know how to spot an authentic Christian Dior bag the next time you shop for purses to avoid buying a knock-off. Christian Dior, a well-known and respected designer, developed handbags that many people soon sought. The bags represent luxury and are made of high-end materials. Normally, it can be easy to tell the difference between a knock-off and authentic designer bag, but some bags may not be easily recognisable. Avoid buying a fake Dior bag by knowing what to look for the next time you shop for one.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Inspect the dust bag that comes with the purse. All Dior dust bags are white cotton and have grey writing. If you notice the fabric is silk or any other fabric, then this indicated that the bag might be a fake.

  2. 2

    Check the lock on the bag. They will only contain a lock, and will not have a key that goes with it. Swarvoski crystals cover the lock as well.

  3. 3

    Locate an authenticity card in the bag. The company will place a card in the bag to let the consumer know that authenticity of the product. The bag will also have a maintenance guide, and the certificate card will come in an envelope. Look for misspellings on the maintenance guide and authenticity card to indicate a fake bag.

  4. 4

    Watch out for low prices. Only sold in stores with a retail license, a real Dior bag usually sells for more than £325. If the bag is being sold new for a cheaper price, the bag may be fake.

  5. 5

    Look at the zippers on the bag. They will be in the shape of a leaf, and the zipper pulls have a square shape and covered with white leather. The zippers will also say "Christian Dior" and "Paris."

  6. 6

    Inspect the designs on the bag. The flowers will appear white and thick, instead of thin and ivory. The rhinestones will appear bright and shiny and will not look cloudy or dull. Also, look for the four metal support feet on the bottom of the bag.

  7. 7

    Check the interior of the bag. It will not have any print or monograms. The only exception to this is the "Sleeper" bag that contains one "Christian Dior" print located on the lining.

  8. 8

    Locate the tag on the purse. The tag will have a barcode and style number if the purse is indeed real.
