One of the most read blogs on this website is the article on how to recognize a real vintage Chanel jacket. Imagine; suddenly you spot a jacket between all second-hand clothing that looks like a Chanel jacket. Is it really possible?
But the labels are cut out, and there are no Chanel buttons on them, but it can be a really authentic Chanel jacket ... Tricky to find out, especially since the labels and buttons can confirm the authenticity of a Chanel jacket. But there are other things you can tell from it. Read our article and who knows, maybe that jacket in the mother's closet is a real Chanel jacket or you accidentally bought a real one via Marktplaats, ebay or another second-hand clothing online store. Let us know, we would like to sympathize!
How to recognize Vintage Chanel couture?
How do you know you have find a real Vintage couture piece of art or just a fake copy? On first sight they look exactly the same, they feels the same and it seems too good to be true. It is quite difficult. These days fakes are on first sight as good as the real onces. There is a whole (black) market on luxury brands on couture, jewelry, toys, games and even make-up. Even Vintage and authentic goods are made with such an knowledge and technical materials; it seems almost impossible to recognize real Vintage these days.
