Fake Check: How to recognize a real Miu Miu bag

Miu Miu is the second line of the luxury label Prada and was founded in the early 1990s. The name of the brand is Miuccia Prada, who was lovingly called Miu by her family. Compared to the classic design handwriting by Prada, Miu Miu is much more playful and has a girlish aesthetic. Feminine bags, with the typical crimson and smoky details for the brand, give the models from Miu Miu a unique look which can not be found on any other label. The beautiful Miu Miu bags are provided with glittering elements or floral appliqués. This makes each bag a true statement-piece. The stylish design of the Miu Miu bags gives each one a simple look. The bags of Miu Miu may be more exciting and youthful of their design, but they all have the high quality of their sister labrador Prada and are worth the investment in any case.

Why should you check your Miu Miu bag before you buy a Fake Check? It’s simple to guarantee the authenticity of your Miu Miu.

The fakes get better and better, which is why a very trained eye needs to distinguish a fake from an original Miu Miu. To help you find the perfect Miu Miu bag in front of a well-crafted fake, check out our Catchy’s Fake Guide for a Miu Miu bag. The devil is well known in detail. So keep an eye out on shopping and take care!

The logo of Miu Miu bags

The logo of Miu Miu Bags The most obvious feature of a Miu Miu bag is their logo. Therefore, the first look when buying a used Miu Miu bag should also be the logo. Despite the many years of experience of fake manufacturers, mistakes are often made here. The Miu Miu logo has some special features. The “m” is divided into two sections. The left arc of the “m” is a full, round “n” while the right arc is only half a “n”. The two parts are separated from each other by a narrow slit. Another important aspect of the logo is that the “u” consists of two arcs which do not meet at the center and are also separated by a narrow gap. In addition, the “u” is arranged slightly deeper than the remaining letters in both cases. In general, the logo is usually placed on the front of the Miu Miu bag and consists of a metal plaque. Of course, a high-quality luxury brand, such as Miu Miu, should not recognize any glue, and the logo does not sit obliquely or obliquely on the bag. If you notice features that are bad for your work, you can assume that the bag can hardly be an original.

Zippers of a Miu Miu bag

Another feature of an original Miu Miu bag are their zippers. If the Miu Miu handbag of your choice is equipped with zip fasteners, a control view can also provide information about a fake. The handles of the zippers of a Miu Miu handbag are all provided with the Miu Miu logo. In addition, the label “riri” or “lampo” can be found on the back of the zipper. In the meantime many fake manufacturers know about these recognition features and fake the details also with their Fake handbags. Therefore the zipper can not be used as the only factor to authenticate your Miu Miu. If you find any inconsistencies here, you can seriously question the authenticity of the Miu Miu bag.

In a Miu Miu pocket: “Made in” & Factory Code

Miu Miu has his handbags produced mainly in Italy. For some time some models are also made in Turkey. However, most vintage Miu Miu bags are still from Italy. When looking into the inner life of the bag, you should find a small patch, on which “MADE IN ITALY” or for more recent models also “MADE IN TURKEY” stands. If another country is mentioned, it is quite certainly a fake. Of each Miu Miu bag contains an additional white patch, which has a three-digit factory code. The two insertions can be found either together or also at different points in the inner lining.

The dust bag and the Miu Miu Product Card

Each Miu Miu bag – whether new or second hand – should be equipped with an original dust bag and a product card. The dust bag was either white or gray by the year 2009. All models, which were produced after 2009, come with a dust bag, which is held in a tender Rosaton. When purchasing a second hand Miu Miu bag, you should always pay attention to the year of manufacture if you want to use the color of the dust bag as a recognition feature for a fake. In contrast to other designer bags such as Chanel , a Miu Miu bag has NO authenticity card, but is only delivered with the so-called “product card” as well as a “care card”. The Product Card contains information such as the item number, the style, the leather type, the specific color and the year of production. The CareCard contains additional care instructions to keep your Miu Miu bag in perfect condition for a long time. It can be that a vintage Miu Miu bag can no longer show both cards. This does not necessarily have to be a fake, but should not be ignored if you doubt the authenticity of your Miu Miu due to other factors.

The interior lining and stitching of Miu Miu bags

The look inside the inner life of your bag can also tell you about the authenticity of the Miu Miu. A Miu Miu bag is usually equipped with an inner lining of fine nylon. This makes the designer bag more easy to clean than, for example, bags from Céline , which are often dressed with delicate suede. You can also take the seams of the Miu Miu bag under the magnifying glass. The seams of your Miu Miu should be sewn straight and clean, as with every high-quality designer bag. Poor workmanship, such as oblique or loose seams, should make you immediately startled. You might be a clear reference to a fake handbag. Then it is better to finger away! Because quality is high for all luxury brands and should also be available with a vintage Miu Miu bag. After all, you want to have a lot of fun with your new dream bag for your money. Basically however: The quality of the stitching should always be seen in conjunction with the other identifying features of an original Miu Miu. There may well be old models, the condition of which is no longer the best but still an authentic designer handbag. Finally, the responsible handling and care of the Miu Miu bag also determines how long it keeps its beautiful shape.
