In this guide, we’ll teach you:

  • What makes an authentic Dior Saddle bag
  • How to spot real vs fake Dior bags
  • Tips that’ll make you a professional authenticator

Let’s see the 6 steps.

How to spot fake Dior Saddle bags

The fastest way to spot fake Dior Saddle bags is to check the label on the interior side of the bag. Fakes always have a compromise of quality in terms of stitching and printing the inscriptions.

Let’s check it all out!

1. Interior label

  • The fake bag has its “DIOR” text looking too thick.
  • The fake “MADE IN ITALY” text is too thick. Also, it isn’t fit deep enough into the leather.
  • The fake bag’s stitching looks too thin, and it also has a jump stitch on the right side of the label.

The label found on the authentic Dior Saddle bag has its stitching looking thicker. It also has all of the stitches in place, without skipping any stitches.

Is it too hard? Reach out to our expert Dior authenticators:

2. Shape

  • The fake bag has its shape looking straight at the top.
  • The shape of the authentic bag is looking like a curvy line.

Now, if that’s not so easy to spot, we’ve got you covered with this detailed image:

  • The fake bag has a straighter look at the top of the bag, without curving.

On the other hand, the authentic Dior Saddle bag has its shape at the top and looks curvier than the fake bag’s shape.

3. Belt logo

3.1. Font-weight

  • The fake bag has its belt’s text looking too thick.
  • The fake text is stamped too deep into the belt.

The authentic Saddle bag has its text looking thinner, as it is printed less deep into the belt.

3.2. Placement

The fake bag has its text improperly positioned on the label:

  • The authentic Saddle bag has its “CHRISTIAN” at the top (from this viewing angle in the fake vs real Dior Saddle image above).
  • The fake Dior Saddle bag has its “DIOR” text at the top of the bag (once again, from the same viewing angle).

Shortly: The fake text is inverted — it reads the other way around.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

4. Buckle

4.1. Text

  • The fake bag has its text looking a tiny bit thinner than what it is supposed to look like on the authentic Dior Saddle bag.

The real text is thicker.

4.2. Color

  • The fake bag has its buckle’s colour too light.

As you may notice, the authentic Dior Saddle bag has a colour a bit darker than the fake bag’s text.

5. Zipper

  • The fake bag’s zipper doesn’t open/close properly.
  • The fake bag’s zipper doesn’t zip up to the edge of the metal area where it should be.
  • The zipper on the fake Dior Saddle bag still has a little empty space where it could move.

On the other hand, the zipper on the authentic Dior Saddle bag rolls up to the very edge of the hardware.

Shortlist: How to tell a fake Dior Saddle bag

  1. Examine the label inside your Dior Saddle bag. Fake bags often feature text on the interior label that appears excessively thick, with stitching around the label that is both thick and short. Be cautious of any jump stitches.
  2. Verify the bag’s shape. Counterfeit Dior Saddle bags may have a straight shape at the top, lacking the slight curve found in genuine bags.
  3. Analyze the belt of your bag. Fake bags tend to display overly thick text on the belt, and the words may not be properly aligned.
  4. Inspect the buckle of your Dior Saddle bag’s belt. Replicas frequently have “Christian Dior” text on the buckle that appears too thin, and the golden color of the buckle is often too light.
  5. Ensure to check the zipper. Replica Dior Saddle bags commonly have zippers that do not extend to the end of the hardware material, leaving a noticeable gap.

Certain scenarios might arise where following each intricate step outlined above becomes impractical while attempting to authenticate your Dior bag.
