We want to keep this guide simple, yet useful and easily understandable, so in order to keep these rules, we are going to link reference real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Kate bag images for each step.

Speaking of which, in this fake vs real YSL Kate bag guide, we are going to show you the best nine spots to look at in order to determine the authenticity of your Yves Saint Laurent Kate bag.

If you want to spot fake YSL Kate bags easily, you have to look at the stamp and the stitched-in label found on the interior side of your Yves Saint Laurent Kate bag. All of the replica YSL Kate bags have their inscriptions and stitches on the interior side of the bag at the wrong thickness, therefore looking apart from the authentic bags which always have their details perfectly in tune.

Now that you know what this is about, let’s proceed into the actual full guide on how to authenticate Yves Saint Laurent YSL Kate bags.

How to spot fake Yves Saint Laurent YSL Kate bags

Step 1: Fake vs real YSL Kate bag interior label

Just as we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the label inside the Yves Saint Laurent Kate bag as one of the top indicators of authenticity for the Kate bag.

Therefore, this is why we are starting the guide on how to authenticate YSL Kate bags with the interior label, and that’s also why we recommend that you always have a look at the interior label too.

First things first, at the top of the guide, we’ve promised that we will link real vs fake YSL Kate bag images for each step. 

Now, let’s analyze the fake vs real Yves Saint Laurent Kate bag image from below, and after that, we will explain the mistakes on the replica bag.

ysl kate bag real vs fake guide

In the image containing the real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Kate bags above, we have pointed out how the fake YSL Kate bag has its stitching found all around the rectangle label at the wrong thickness.

By that, we mean that the fake YSL Kate bag has its stitching looking thicker than the one found on the authentic bag.

Mentioning authentic, if you look at the real deal, you can see how the bag has its stitching thinner than the one found on the replica Kate bag.

Now, in regards to the text found on the label, you can see in the real vs fake YSL Kate bag image above how the fake bag has its “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” text looking too thick.

Yet again, the authentic bag has its details thinner, since the “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” inscription on the legit bag is thinner than the one found on the replica Kate bag.

With this being said for the first step of the guide on how to spot fake YSL Kate bags, let’s move on to the next way.

Step 2: Real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Kate bag interior stamp

For the second step of the guide on how to sot fake Yves Saint Laurent Kate bags, we are going to talk about another inscription on the inside of the bag, but this time, about the silver coloured text.

As you may know already, we are first going to have a look at the reference real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Kate bag image linked below.

In the image with the real vs fake YSL Kate bags above, we have pointed out how the replica YSL Kate bag has its “SAINT LAURENT” text looking too thin this time.

On the other hand, the authentic YSL Kate bag has its “SAINT LAURENT” text looking thicker and more defined than the fake bag’s text.

The same flaw applies to the “PARIS” text as well, where the fake bag has its text too thick, and the legit bag has its text thinner.

At the same time, the kerning between the letters “A” and “R” in the “PARIS” text is also too much, as the “PARIS” text on the fake bag has too much space between the second and the third letters.

The authentic Yves Saint Laurent Paris Kate bag has the same amount of space between all of its letters, unlike the fake Kate bag.

Step 3: Verify the “SAINT LAURENT” text on the chainlink patch

Proceeding to the third method on how to spot fake Yves Saint Laurent Kate bags, we will have to look at the “SAINT LAURENT” text engraved deep into the rectangle found on the chainlink of the real vs fake YSL Kate bags.

Speaking of which, let’s now analyse the reference fake vs real YSK Kate bags with the help of the image from below.

In the image with the real vs fake Yves Saint Laurent Kate bags above, we have pointed out how the fake Kate bag has its “SAINT LAURENT” text at the wrong engraving level.

In fact, the fake YSL Kate bag has its letters in both the “SAINT” and in the “LAURENT” text are fit too little deep into the metal.

Since the letters are engraved too little deep into the fake bag’s metal, they look thinner than the ones found on the authentic bags’ “SAINT LAURENT” text.

The authentic Yves Saint Laurent bag has its “SAINT LAURENT” inscription looking thicker and more defined than the fake bag’s text, therefore the legit bag having its text more edible than the fake bag’s text.

Step 4: Look at the text on the hardware details of your YSL Kate bag

Going to the fourth method on how to spot fake Yves Saint Laurent bags, we will have a look at the “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” text printed on the rounded hardware details all around of where the chains go.

Just as always, let’s first have al look at the reference fake vs real YSL Kate bag image linked below.

In the image with the real vs fake YSL Kate bags above, we have pointed out how the fake Kate bag has its “SAINT LAURENT PAIRS” text at the wrong thickness.

The replica YSL Kate bag presents its text engraved too deep, looking thicker than the authentic bag’s text.

The legitimate Yves Saint Laurent Kate bag has its “SAINT LAURENT PARIS” inscription engraved less deep into the metal, as it looks thinner than the replica bag’s text.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways on how to authenticate this item.

The tells listed below this point are still reliable signs of authenticity, but for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the top tells we’ve explained above this point to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.
