|Time to address a popular question: should the quilting line up on the front/back of the bag? This picture displays an authentic CHANEL handbag which does not line up.|
This is the second post I am doing in a series about Chanel handbag misconceptions. I have already previously stated this but it seems as if there is a LOT of misconceptions about what a real or fake Chanel handbag should or should not look like. I get hundreds of emails weekly outlining various questions from various lovely blog readers who are thinking of purchasing a replica Chanel but they are very very confused as to what they should be looking for, and what does not really matter when it comes to buying a replica Chanel handbag.
I have already written about the stitching on a Chanel handbag, and pointed out what exactly you should look for when shopping for either an authentic, second hand, or replica Chanel handbag to ensure the stitching is correct. If you are interested in reading about that issue/controversy click here.
Anyways back to the topic of today's post: the quilting on a Chanel handbag. Should it line up on the front and back? Is my bag fake if it doesn't line up? Is there a certain standard all authentic Chanel handbags should adhere to? Well darlings the truth of the matter is that authentic Chanel handbags do not necessarily have quilting which lines up on either the front or back of the handbag.

|Here is a back shot of the authentic CHANEL handbag which does not line up on the back of the bag either. Does this make it fake? NO, misalignment is part of the Chanel design. It does not make a handbag fake or real.|
