Fake or Real? Gucci Disco Bag Authentication
Gucci Disco bags are super popular and bring such easy and effortless style to any outfit! Because they are so popular, the market is flooded with counterfeit versions and sometime's it's not so easy to tell whether you've got Gucci or you got duped. This is why it's important to know characteristics and traits of authentic Gucci bags - when you're a first, second, or even third time buyer of Gucci, fakes can still fool you with fake serial numbers, RFID tags, and logo stamps. To make an initial check to see if there are any red flags on the bag you have purchased, watch the video and read more below for detailed pictures and explanations:
There will be white tag sewn into the interior of the dust bag that should sage "Made in Italy" with care instructions on the back.
Your Gucci bag should come with a care booklet. There isn't much difference to note in the picture below, which is a great example of how easily bags and accessories can be replicated.
The authentic Gucci tassels should be cleanly cut and will appear to have two thin layers. The counterfeit tassels were slightly puffier although roughly the same size.
The second serial tag will be located in the bottom interior left of the bag. It should be a black loop and have a 10 digit white serial number and QR code on in. Make sure there is no stitching the edges of this tag and the number is clear and easy to read.
The strap on authentic Gucci Disco bags will only have one loop holding the excess strap in place. On the counterfeit one, there were two loops on the strap and that second loop has a piece of metal holding the loop together. There should be no metal on the back of the strap. The excess leather should also no be a half moon shape, but rather a slight curve that is cleanly cut.
