Why Buy Authentic Luxury Pieces
Can you tell the difference between a real $15,000 Chanel Quilted Caviar Double Flap handbag and a fake one? Thanks to what are now called Super Fakes in the marketplace only the most highly trained Authenticators can, and there are only a few thousand of those folks worldwide which is why reputable resale companies are using third party authentication software to certify their luxury goods prior to selling them in-store in and online.
Authentication in luxury goods is important to each luxury brand. It preserves the prestige and lineage of each collection within the brand. Circulating only authentic pieces keeps the value of each piece intact and can increase the value of collections, making luxury items a good investment. Luxury powerhouses like Chanel, Versace, Prada, and Louis Vuitton have been around for many years and will continue to hold their place in the fashion industry as long as their authentic pieces continue to circulate.
New designers also depend upon their pieces remaining authentic in the marketplace so that their companies hold their values.
Original, authentic luxury items are designed and manufactured with unprecedented precision, high quality materials and creative and telling characteristics. These are the marks of luxury and when counterfeit products are bought and sold alongside the real pieces, ii causes confusion for consumers. That Louis Vuitton Neverfull which is supposed to be waterproof is sporting a large watermark because of the inferior leather used in the counterfeit copycat. The duped consumer who purchased the counterfeit now feels less than excited about having spent good money on what was thought to be a genuine handbag but turned out to be a fake.
Sustainability is also key in the circulation of authentic luxury items. High quality craftsmanship means items will last for many years and one handbag could be loved and re-loved again and again by multiple owners. When counterfeits are manufactured it squelches the efforts luxury brands take towards sustainability.
Stella McCartney is one example of her steadfastness in doing her part to preserve our oceanic wildlife and marine environments. Some of her collections are made out of recycled waste collected from trash dumped into the oceans. When items from these collections are re-created with counterfeited materials, her initiatives towards sustainability and circumvented.
