Louis Vuitton is considered to be the most counterfeited brand of all luxury brands - reportedly 90% of LV purses sold on eBay are fakes. In 2008 the French court ordered the online marketplace to pay $61 million to LVMH, the luxury group that owns Louis Vuitton. Almost 10 years later, counterfeiting is still a global problem. In order to save yourself from buying a fake Louis Vuitton handbag, we made a detailed list that will help you spot a fake!
The universe of bags and the words to describe them are so diverse and versatile that even professionals, including us at Lux Second Chance, sometimes get confused.

We have compiled a list that will help you to use the right words for your favourite accessory.
