How to tell a fake Louis Vuitton Dauphine bag

To spot fake vs real LV Dauphine bags, examine the square label inside the bag. Fake Louis Vuitton bags always have the wrong thickness for their text.

1. Interior label

Authentic vs fake comparison of the LV Dauphine bag's interior label
  • Authentic:
    • The registered trademark “®” symbol is thicker.
    • The “LOUIS VUITTON PARIS” text is thinner and wider.
    • The “made in” text is thicker.
    • The stitching threads are thicker.
  • Fake:The registered trademark “®” symbol is too thin.
    • The “LOUIS VUITTON PARIS” text is too thick and boxy.
    • The “made in” text is too thin.
    • The stitching threads all around the bag are too thin.

2. Strap

  • Authentic:
    • Text is thinner and does not fit as deeply into the leather, giving it a sleeker appearance.
    • Stitching threads at the top and bottom of the bag are thicker and more substantial.
  • Fake:
    • Text fits too deeply into the leather, resulting in a thicker and bulkier appearance.
    • Stitching threads at the top and bottom are too thin.

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.

3. Butons

  • Authentic:
    • The “LOUIS VUITTON ®” text engraved on the buttons is thicker and more defined.
  • Fake:
    • Text on the buttons appears too thin compared to the authentic bag.

4. Keychain

Authentic vs fake comparison of the LV Dauphine bag's keychain
  • Authentic:
    • The “LV” inscriptions are thinner and clearly defined.
  • Fake:
    • Both “LV” inscriptions on the fake bag are thicker than those on the authentic bag.
    • The text on the fake bag also appears somewhat blurry.

5. Flap

Authentic vs fake comparison of the LV Dauphine bag's stitching on the flap
  • Authentic: Features thinner, longer threads.
  • Fake: Threads are too thick and small, appearing boxy.

6. Buckle

Authentic vs fake comparison of the LV Dauphine bag's buckle
  • Authentic:
    1. Buckle is less shiny.
    2. “LV” letters are thinner and slimmer.
    3. Threads on the brown strap are longer and thinner.
  • Fake:
    1. Buckle is shinier.
    2. “LV” letters are too thick.
    3. Threads on the brown strap are short and slightly thicker.

Short on time? Here’s a checklist:

Here are the top 6 indicators to help you determine if your bag is genuine or a replica:

  1. Verify the inscription on the square label on the side of your bag; fake bags often have poorly font-weighted text.
  2. Check the inscription and stitching on the strap of your bag; replicas may have incorrectly sized text and stitching.
  3. Examine the buttons on your Louis Vuitton Mini Dauphine bag; counterfeit bags may have inscriptions that are too thick or too thin.
  4. Inspect the “LV” text on the keychain of the bag; many fake bags have overly thick text.
  5. Look at the stitching on the flap of your bag; replica bags often have threads that are the wrong length and thickness.
  6. Briefly examine the buckle of your Louis Vuitton Metis bag; fake bags may have overly shiny buckles and text in the wrong font-weight.”
