As promised, here is the second part of the how to spot a fake Celine Luggage Tote guide. I did a lot of research for this article and the more I read about Celine bags, the more I was confirmed that Celine Luggage bags are the most difficult to authenticate and great fake Celine bags are the most difficult to find.

Since this blog is all about sharing and taking care of one another here are some tricks and tips on how to find the best fake Celine bag online, how to spot bad fakes and if you’re all about original bags, how to spot a fake Celine Luggage.

Heat Stamping

The exterior logo of a Celine Mini Luggage Tote should have a right-pointing accent above the first “E” and the word “Paris” underneath. The color of the stamp should match the color of the hardware and the letters should not be neither too thick, not too thin and should not be uneven, faint or blurry. Also, they shouldn’t touch each other.

Still, one can never be 100% sure just by looking at the logo. So if you want to learn how to spot a fake Celine Luggage Tote properly, there are many other things you should also check! The reason why I’m saying this is because not even authentic Celine Luggage bags have a perfect stamping. Here’s an example:

Interior Tags

This is also a tricky one because Celine has lots of variations of tagging. The labels differ depending on the size of the Celine Luggage tote! For example, the interior label of the Mini Luggage, which is also the most common model, will have “Made in Italy” printed in italic caps. On Celine Nano Luggage Totes, the logo is embossed on a leather tab.

The interior tag is typically made of the same leather as the exterior of the bag.

Serial Number

Most Celine bags have a leather serial number tab, no matter the size. The embossed numbers are not unique for every single bag and can be repeated, which is why it is actually not that important. The format of the serial number should be like this: one letter-two letters-four numbers, but nobody knows exactly how to translate it, because Celine never made the significance of the serial number public.

The corners of the rectangular leather tab are usually clipped at clean right angles and not curved at the corners, but as you would expect from Celine, this is also not an absolute rule.

Zipper

Celine doesn’t use brand name zippers for their bags, so the back of the zipper should be plain and unmarked. Still, the size of the zipper should be listed on the end. I.e. the number 8 is listed on Celine Mini Luggage Totes and the number 1 (looks like a “I”) is listed on the zipper of the Celine Nano Luggage:

The zippers used on Celine Luggage totes should have an antiqued finished to them and not be too brassy or shiny, which is why I usually recommend replica Celine handbags with silver hardware instead of gold. There are less chances for it to look cheap!

Lining And Interior Pockets

Celine only uses high-quality leather for both the exterior and interior of its bags, which is why the lining is such an important part of a good Celine fake Luggage bag. The first rule is that Luggage Totes made of smooth calfskin leather should have matching leather linings, while those made of pebbled or drummed leather should feature a soft suede lining. Please note that the interior of the Nano Luggage made of pebbled leather is micro suede, not suede!

The Celine Mini Luggage has pockets on both sides, one zippered and two open. Up until 2011 they were attached to the underlining of the top of the bag and starting from summer 2011 they are attached on the interior of the bag.

The color of the interior is either the predominant color, the color of the handles or black. You see, there is no standardized rule regarding this.

The Bottom

All replica Celine Luggage Totes should have four protective studs and no stitching across the bottom. The only exception is the Nano Luggage Tote that doesn’t feature metal bottom studs!

The Front Pocket Stitching

Here is a Celine fake vs real tip for pros: I already told you that the stitching of the front pocket should be straight, but there’s one more thing. The corners should not come in right angles, but be a bit rounded at the bottom edges. Here’s a comparison:

General Tips

1. The Celine Mini Luggage Tote is not a structured bag! Even on authentic bags, the leather gets softer and softer with wear and starts losing its original shape. Even though it is extremely roomy, it is not advisable to stuff it with a lot of things for an extended period of time, because the smooth leather tends to sag.

What you can do to combat this is insert a stiff felt liner on the inside of the bag, to add some structure and support to the bottom and the sides.

2. The drummed/pebbled leather is more durable and resistant to scratch than the smooth leather.

3. Be careful with colors, especially for the Tricolor Celine Mini Luggage replica bags, because some of them don’t even exist! This is why it’s safer to stick to simpler, monochrome versions.
