If there’s something essential for working moms and gals, it’s a bag. My pick would be something practical, durable, and simple. My favorite workhorse bag is the Longchamp Le pliage nylon. It’s a popular bag that you can see almost everywhere because of the prevalence of counterfeit bags.
I’ll show you some photo comparisons of the replica vs. the authentic nylon. The two bags are both large totes.
Top: Authentic | Bottom: Fake
The zipper: In person, the zipper of the original is more detailed and clean.
I noticed the handle of the original is a tad thinner and more flat than the fake.
The embossed name and the outlines of the name Longchamp in the flap is again more precise.
Same with the No. “45”. You can see the difference.
Tag: Not all bags made in China is fake, and not all bags made in France is original.
High end replicas are all over.
It’s up to you to decide what you buy and where you buy. A lot of sellers claim they sell authentic ones, so just be careful.
