LV knockoffs or replica Louis Vuitton bags are everywhere these days, and as other reviews on this blog have shown some of them are so good it’s almost impossible to tell they are fake. Unfortunately, that is not the case with this replica LV Monogram Alma bag, and this Designerpurses.ru review will make it clear why.
Now the bag doesn’t look horrible at first glance, and is a replica that many first time buyers are happy to get because it somewhat resembles the authentic version. However to anyone with moderate knowledge of Louis Vuitton’s handbags it is obvious that there is a lot wrong, so if you’re wondering what’s wrong with this knockoff Louis Vuitton bag, and at the same time want to improve your “how to spot a fake Louis Vuitton” skills, this review is a must read!
A friend bought this fake Louis Vuitton bag and immediately noticed some major flaws. She sent me some photos of the bag and a very detailed Designerpurses.ru review. Here they are:
I placed my order at designerpurses.ru early before Christmas because I really wanted to celebrate the holidays with a brand new LV bag. I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and this is how I found out that paying by credit card is the safest method. And so I did. I also sent them a message before placing my order to make sure they answer (they don’t have an email address or a phone number, just a contact form). They answered back and then I after that I made the transfer.
The package arrived in 14 days which I think is pretty good considering its the holiday shopping season. But the bag is nothing like what I imagined! Don’t get me wrong, I knew the bag wouldn’t be perfect but really now, I could never wear this! The stitching and the leather stamps look just awful! And I don’t think you need to be an expert to see this bag looks cheap…
I sent you this designerpurses.ru review just to let other girls know what to expect. I already decided to return the bag. Really hope I’m going to get my money back, wish me luck!
And thank you for all your replica advice, you’re a life saver!”
An Unclear Return Policy:
I checked their return policy is not very clear (on one page it states you can return within 10 days and on another it states you can only return the bag if there is a problem with it) and that they make you pay the shipping fees, so it is not clear whether this reader will have luck actually returning the bag and getting her money back.
Analyzing The Flaws of This LV Replica Bag:
In terms of the flaws of the actual bag, she was right about the messy stitching and the poorly embossed leather tags. The letters are unclear and the hanging leather tag shouldn’t even say “made in France” so that is a dead giveaway that is a replica. The LV engraved padlock and the brass trimmings look really cheap and good Louis Vuitton knockoffs have nothing to do with cheap. Even the shape of this knockoff Louis Vuitton Alma is bad! It looks like it’s been butchered (possibly during shipping?), the poor thing. I totally support this blog reader’s decision to try to return the bag!
The Bottom Line:
As this bag shows the fact that you see Louis Vuitton replicas for sale everywhere on the web (whether it be social media, websites, or auction sites like iOffer or Ebay) doesn’t mean that it is easy to buy a good Louis Vuitton replica. Instead it actually makes your task more difficult because you need to make sure you are not getting a subpar bag as happened to this reader. In order to avoid running into a similar situation, don’t easily hand your money over to replica sellers. Instead you must double-check all those details pointed out as flaws in this review, and vet the reputation of the seller as well!
Has anyone used luxurybaga.com to order LV replicas?
Has anyone ordered from designer discret. When checking out they wanted their payment done through western union, that annoying
I own 6 pieces of genuine LV. . My first pieces were bought by my mom, A wallet, keychain purse and a weekender. I then had a boyfriend who bought me a epi black bucket bag and a red a hand wrist purse. The wallet cracked within a year from everyday use, the keychain coin purse broke where the keys were held within 2 month. .My boyfriend did not know that I no longer liked LV. I do not even want to buy a replica LV. If you are into LV , then do buy a replica. The real LV has been such a waste for me. All of these LV were bought at Louis Vuitton in Toronto on Bloor Street. I will now only buy replicas. Chanel all the way and Hermes.
Hi Victoria, thanks for sharing your experience! It’s unfortunate that the authentic pieces are going downhill in quality, it makes it seem even more silly to be a handbag puritan (as I like to label it) as your spending thousands on things that aren’t even built to last (as they were back in the day).
