How to spot a fake Gucci Dionysus Bag

You can tell if a Gucci Dionysus bag is real if the text on the “® GUCCI made in italy” interior label has the same thickness for all symbols. Fakes never pass this test.

1. Interior label

Comparison of the authentic vs fake Gucci Dionysus bags for their interior logos
  • Trademark ®
    • Authentic: Proportionate, crisp (®) symbol.
    • Fake: Smaller, boxy (®) with thicker lines.
  • Gucci logo
    • Authentic: Light, precise “GUCCI” stamp.
    • Fake: Thicker, deeper “GUCCI” stamp.
  • Made in Italy text
    • Authentic: Consistent font size and weight.
    • Fake: Variable font size and weight.

2. Dragon

Comparison of the authentic vs fake Gucci Dionysus bags for their dragons
  • Authentic: Well-proportioned, intricately detailed dragon.
  • Fake: Stretched-out dragon, varying in size, height, and shape.

Let’s take a closer look:

Comparison of the authentic vs fake Gucci Dionysus bags for their dragons
  • Authentic: Dragon curves gradually, as shown by green lines.
  • Fake: Dragon is less wide and curves suddenly, marked by red lines.

The real Gucci Dionysus bag has a naturally curved dragon. Fakes often have less wide and more abrupt curves. Look at the dragon’s shape to spot a counterfeit.

3. GG Pattern

You’ll see the same pattern on the Gucci GG Supreme belt.

Comparison of the authentic vs fake Gucci Dionysus bags for their patterns
  • Authentic: Lighter “GG” pattern.
  • Fake: Darker, nuanced brown “GG” pattern.

Quick take: The genuine Gucci Dionysus bag has a lighter “GG” pattern compared to the much darker hue found on counterfeit bags. Keep an eye on the color nuances to differentiate real from fake.

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. Chainlinks

Comparison of the authentic vs fake Gucci Dionysus bags for their chains
  • Authentic: Subtle chain shine.
  • Fake: Overly reflective chains.

The chains on an authentic Gucci Dionysus bag are less reflective, while the counterfeit versions often have overly shiny chains.

This is a good detail to focus on for distinguishing real from fake.

Shortlist: Authenticate your Gucci Dionysus bag

  1. Check the interior Gucci label. Most of the time, the fake Gucci Dionysus bags have their text on the label printed too deep into the bag, which makes it look too thick
  2. Look at the metal dragon on the front side of your Gucci Dionysus bag. Mostly, the fake Gucci Dionysus bags have their metal dragon looking less wide than the authentic dragon
  3. Analyze the pattern of your bag. Usually, the fake Gucci Dionysus bags have their pattern looking too nuanced into a dark brown, while the legit bags are coloured lighter
  4. Inspect the chains on your Gucci bag. Most of the time, the fake Gucci Dionysus bags have their chains shining way more than the authentic Gucci bag’s chains, and not only that but the fake bags also reflect too much light

At times, you might not have the opportunity to follow every detailed step above for your Gucci bag authentication.
