The Real Thing: How to Spot a Genuine Miu Miu Bag
Miu Miu handbags were introduced to the market in 1992 by Miuccia Prada, made in the same quality style as Prada bags but at a more affordable price point. Since then, a number of celebrity women have been seen wearing bags from Miu Miu, including Jessica Alba and Emma Roberts. The bags come in a variety of earthy hues and are similar to traditional Prada bags due to their simple, classic designs.
If you’re in the market for a Miu Miu bag, here are a few ways that you can spot an authentic purse before making your purchase.
The “M” of the Miu Miu symbol should be broken into two sections. The left side should look like a full lower-case n, while the right side should resemble a partial n that nearly meets at the top. The logo will also be embossed on the front the handbag, to the right. There are also some Miu Miu bags that feature the authenticity seal in a metal piece attached to the purse.
The zippers of Miu Miu handbags will feature the brand name if the purse is authentic. Sometimes, the letters IPI will be embossed on the back of the zipper. Zippers for the handbags come in hard rubber and shiny silver.
Miu Miu Authenticity Cards
The leather handbags will come with cards that verify that the accessories are genuine. The authenticity cards are light gray and made of textured cardboard that has a speckled pattern. The Miu Miu log will be in the center of the front of the card in silver. For Dust bags, the card will be white and have a silver or gray Miu Miu logo. There should be an adhesive label on the back of the card that contains the rest of the essential bag information, like the design name and the fact that the bag was made in Italy.
Handbag Lining and Tag
The lining inside of Miu Miu handbags should be made of nylon. The lining will be smooth to the touch, and should be a solid color.
Be sure to check the inner pocket of the handbag as well for a numbered tag should be sewn into the purse.
