You’re probably here because:

  • You have a Givenchy bag
  • And you don’t know if it’s a dupe
  • So you need to check its authenticity

Fear not, this is the definitive guide to spot fake Givenchy bags.

We’ll use the Givenchy Antigona for reference.

However, you can use this guide to authenticate most other Givenchy bags.

How to spot fake Givenchy bags

Spotting fake Givenchy Antigona bags made easy: Focus on the ‘GIVENCHY MADE IN ITALY’ label for quick authentication.

Learn how to identify printing flaws and stitching differences in the next 4 steps.

1. Interior label

1.1. Front

  • Fake:
    • “GIVENCHY” text appears narrower compared to the authentic bag.
    • The “Y” in “GIVENCHY” is smaller and tighter than the authentic.
  • Fake:
    • “GIVENCHY MADE IN ITALY” printing seems deeper than the authentic bag’s text.
    • Especially noticeable on “MADE IN ITALY.”

1.2. Back

Your Givenchy bag has a serial number on the back of the interior.

In this case, the authentic one reads “MP B 0157”.

  • Fake: Different font used for characters on the fake bag compared to the authentic one.

2. Metal logo

  • Fake: In the given fake vs. real Givenchy Antigona Medium bag comparison:
    • Observe the spacing issue between letters “I” and “V.”
    • Thicker letters, especially on “C” and “Y,” distinguish the fake bag.
  • Authentic: Maintains consistent spacing between letters and uses thinner fonts, as seen in the comparison.

3. Shape

  • Fake: Has a disproportionately wide shape.
  • Authentic: Maintains a more balanced and accurate shape, as illustrated in the comparison image.

4. Carbines

  • Fake: Less defined and legible compared to the text on the authentic bag’s carbines.
  • Authentic: Clearly defined and easily readable “GIVENCHY” printing on the carbines.

Shortlist: Authenticate your Givenchy bag on the go

Sometimes, a thorough step-by-step authentication isn’t feasible when assessing your Givenchy Antigona Medium bag.

That’s why we’ve created a quick 60-second solution for authenticating your bag.

  1. Interior Label: Check for narrower and deeply stamped letters on the front side, with a different font on the rear side compared to the authentic bag.
  2. Exterior “GIVENCHY” Text: Verify the spacing between letters and their thickness; fake Givenchy Antigona Medium bags tend to have excessive spacing and thicker letters.
  3. Shape: Observe the bag’s side profile for excessive curvature, which is a common feature in fake Givenchy Antigona Medium bags.
  4. Metal Carbine Text: Inspect the “GIVENCHY” text on the metal carbines for clarity and legibility; fake bags often have less readable text compared to authentic ones.
