A thin package that is easily wrinkled indicates a fake. Bags for sale in Russia are delivered in packages of cream color.
Do not be afraid if you received the bag in a yellow or white bag. Yellow color means that the bag is from the old collection and was stale in the warehouse – a few years ago the bags were yellow. In white bags, Michael Kors bags are delivered to US stores. If you receive a white package in Russia, most likely you have overpaid for delivery – your bag arrived from Asia to America, and then came back to our mainland.

Fake Michael Kors
Often, the original Michael Kors can be distinguished from a fake at first glance. Pay attention to the quality of the seams – in the original they are smooth. Nowhere will there be protruding threads, peeling off patches and glue stains. Look at the bag from the end – the form should be smooth. Take a look at the handles – at the fake, at the bend of the handles, the material is gathered into folds, in the original everything is exactly. The inscription Michael Kors on the original bag is depressed, but on the fake it is simply glued on top.
When transporting any bag slightly wrinkled. Branded Michael Kors bags quickly restore shape. A fake may never return form, traces of creases will remain.
A fake smells – branded bag does not smell. If you trust tactile sensations, you will distinguish a fake by touch. The original bag is soft and smooth.
Fraudsters know about all the intricacies. If the fake is different from the original, it means that unscrupulous manufacturers wanted to save money and time on the production of goods.
