Chanel Pearl Crush Mini Rectangular Flap - Real/Fake
Again, let me show you some detailed photo and see what's the differences and how to spot it out.
This one is hard but what's the challenge after four series of Real/Fake. We always share A++ counterfeit comparison so that we can learn something, right?
However this time we don't have a same colour/same style handbag to compare.
Looking at the appearance, leather, rims and stitching are quite perfectly done. Even the touch of the leather are soft and similar. What may be alerted would be the back of the buckle (hardwares are the hardest to copy, e.g. metal tone, screw, font and the engraving...) and we will take a closer look at below.
Getting a close look on the buckle, front CC hardwares are actually the same and you can't see any different! But at the back with 'CHANEL PARIS' engraving, you can see they are different. The screws are similar but you can see that one is flat on surface, while another one is with a bit curve, looking round.
The pearl crush part is surprisingly similar. What you can pick is the CC looks slightly different with the round/corner end. But here is another part that give it away! The little sphere hanging at the strap end! Hello engraving~ The colour tone and size are slightly distinct as well.
The below details is more important to spot out the counterfeit. Let's pay attention!
As I always say engraving is hard to copy, zipper and hardware logo would be the first thing to notice. And now into the era of metal tag, we have more hardware for authentication. But I'd say the interior plated logo is very well-made this time. Usually even you can't distinguish with your own eyes, there are differences under the camera. Try paying attention on the reflection of light or use a phone and put it under the camera when you checking on your own bag~
Zipper part, especially the zippers in interior are always sloppy for counterfeit. The engraving of CC on zipper is obviously poorly duplicated.
So, have the right answer in mind? Which one is a FAKE?!
IT'S THE PINK!!!!
