Real or Fake? Fendi 2Jours
The Fendi 2Jours continue to be one of Fendi’s most popular bags. Since it’s so in demand and the style is so old, there are a ton of fakes being sold on many sites! It’s important to protect yourself against purchasing a fake and are able to take the necessary steps to determine if what you purchased is authentic or counterfeit.

Authentic Fendi Black Bag - Older (pre 2010)
Fake Fendi Black Bag - Older
Fendi holograms, RFID and serial number:
The reason there are three bags used for comparison is to explore the differences in authenticity markers in newer and older versions of the bag. Beginning in 2004, all authentic Fendi bags were manufactured with holograms. However, from 2010, the hologram was replaced by Fendi RFID tag. You will not find newer styles such as the By The Way or Kan I bag with a hologram. Instead, they will all have a serial number in addition to an RFID fabric tag with another serial number.
The RFID tags are located on a fabric tag with 8 embroidered digits. This tag contains a wireless FENDI RFID chip inside. RFID - is a Radio Frequency Identification technology that contains the bag’s info such as the model, serial number, color, etc.
