Hey guys I just wanted to share a review of a gorgeous Celine Phantom I had purchased several months ago. I completely forgot to post the review of the bag until I wore it out a few days ago. Anyone who has read this blog even a bit will know that I am currently addicted to CELINE bags, and as we all know not everyone wants (or in many cases can) pop out a couple of thousand for the authentics in every style. I personally have two authentic Celine bags (one is my belt tote and the other is a tri colored nano which I completely fell in love with – I will post my entire CELINE collection soon!). Anyways I have noticed that there are indeed some very good CELINE replica bags out there which is why I am honestly pretty deterred personally at this point from buying any more authentic pieces as the knockoffs do justice to the original design. As I mention all the time it really comes down to knowing how to shop for replica handbags, whether they be CELINE or any other designer out there!
Here are the photos of my Phantom which is actually a replica of the croc embossed version in red. The leather of the bag is quite stiff but it is definitely authentic and I like how the croc embossed bag keeps its shape a bit better compared to the other Phantoms made from calfskin since I think that the form of the bags are what make CELINE’s personality. Take a look at the photos below and let me know what you think – would you go authentic or fake for the Celine replica bag shown below?
One very very important thing to remember if you are shopping for a replica Celine Phantom bag in particular is that you MUST take a look at the bottom of the bag. If you do not get a shot of the bottom of the handbag please do NOT buy the bag! You have to make sure that the bag does not have a stitch through the middle. Although there are some older editions of the croc Phantom which did come with a stitch, CELINE has discontinued this production method and a stitch through the middle is considered a tell tale sign of a fake bag! This is the #1 sign that handbag authenticators and any keen CELINE fan would use to judge the authenticity of bag, and so if you want to invest in a good replica then make sure that the centre is not stitched!
A close up of the hardware on the bottom of the bag! CELINE Phantoms come with little pegs on the bottom of the bag. This is another thing to look out for when thinking of purchasing a replica Celine as many knockoffs also miss this detail!
Make sure that the inside zipper of the Phantom is stamped with “Made in Italy” right below the zipper line and nowhere else! A closeup of the braided zipper on the Phantom which is just one detail of the bag that I love!
