The Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy is one of the most popular and beautiful handbags ever, one that has conquered the hearts of countless fashionistas and it represents a must bag for any self respecting modern city girl. The beauty of this designer purse consists in its elegant shape, fine choice of materials and glamorous lines. It is the perfect contemporary bag.
Being so loved and beautiful, the Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy is one of the most replicated bags on the market. Replica manufacturers are getting better and better at cloning this model and differentiating the original one from a fake can turn out to be a real challenge. Still, there are a few things that can’t be perfectly imitated and I am going to present these things in my review so you can make an informed choice.
The below picture includes a replica and the original Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM. The fake bag in on the left while the authentic purse is on the right. As you can very well observe from the photos, the original handbag has a more elegant look, it stands more firmly and its charm does not hand out like the one of the replica purse. This is because the real LV Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM has the string of the charm made from a stiffer leather and is shorter.
The outside of the two bangs is totally different, this pointing out that the Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM replica bag isn’t a very good one. The main cause for this is the leather used for crafting the purse. The material is very shiny and the embossing of the LV monograms into its surface is too pronounced, and these are cluttered and too close together. This makes it look very cheap and fake. The original one is made from a very stiff and quite matte leather and the mongram embossing looks more discrete. The type of leather used for making this bag is also the reason why the replica purse fails to stand tall by its own. You have to stuff it really well in order for it to have a shape similar to the original one- which doesn’t need the same amout of stuffing for standing firmly.
Please also note that the handles of the original Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM bag are beautifully curved. Unfortunately, the replica purse does not have the same arched handles. These are straight looking, without any sort of shape.
The inside lining should be textile fabric of a dark blue color with brown vertical lines. The original bag has a very dark blue color lining while most replicas use a lighter one.
The bottom of the LV Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM has a crossed stitching which meet right in the center of one of the monogram fowers. The color of the stitching is also a dark blue. This very dark blue is called Infinity. In very bright day light it looks blue while in most type of normal light it looks black. The base also has 4 metallic studs, the feet of the purse. These are placed at the starting points of the crossed stitching and each stud cuts off a part of a monogram flower. For example, the top studs cut off the top part of he flower while the lower ones cut off the lower part of the flower. From this point of view, this Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM fake purse looks very authentic.
The Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM replica bag has gold hardware just as the authentic bag. All the zippers, charms, studs and rings that connect the handles to the body of the bag are made from solid stainless steel and are coated with gold plating. Every metallic part is engraved with the “Louis Vuitton” name. This makes the bag look very authentic.
Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM replica bag has its good and bad parts. Still, if I take a moment to balance them I realize that the bads weight more. The very visible parts of this replica purse like the material, the shape of the handles and the monograms are very poorely replicates while the more hard to notice details such as the stitching and the name engraved on the metallic parts are very well cloned. The problem here is that anyone can tell that this bag is a fake just by looking at its shinny leather and clutered monograms. So, from my point of view, this is a terrible fake and it should serve as an example for what you should avoid when buying a Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM replica bag.
