Meet the 2 new color of Longchamp Neo Chalk and Peony.
Available in Small, Medium and Large.
Here’s additional photo comparison from my reader’s fake vs authentic LC Neo.
The blue on is the fake one while the red one is the authentic one.
I recently email Longchamp to check if they have Neo in Lime, Yellow or Lavender and this is their reply:
Hope this helps you guys, don’t get fooled by low price bag.
A lot have been asking me to have a separate article about how to spot fake Longchamp Le Pliage Neo. So here you go guys!
At first Longchamp released only seven colours for this line and these are the following: Bilberry, Navy, Black, Hydragea or Fuchsia (hot pink), Emerald (med. green), Poppy (orange-red), and Orange (looks yellow-orange).
and this year they added two more colours: Grey and Khaki and release again black, navy and fuchsia.
And by the way I recently read a news from another bag blog that Longchamp Le Pliage Neo has three sizes: Small (1512) 25x23x26 cm, Medium (1515) 32x28x17 cm and Large (1630) 40x13x18 cm.
Here’s a comparison of authentic and fake Longchamp Le Pliage Neo (Photo on the left side of your screen is the FAKE one)
Snap Button should be Longchamp above and 1948 below. It should also be well aligned on the jockey above. The jockey in the snap button should look like a jockey not anything else.
Zipper pull should be very detailed and the arch of the jockey is way higher than the fake one. The horse in the fake one is much more skinnier than the authentic one. Colour of the pull also is very different because the authentic one is much shinier and lively than the fake one which is so dull.
Zipper use in most Longchamp bags are YKK. With Longchamp Le Pliage Neo you can see the YKK tag inside the bag. You can’t barely see the difference between the two, but if you look closely you can see the shape of the authentic one have much indented arc that the fake one which is like a slope. You can also see the difference in the letter N on the authentic one which is very straighten than the fake which have the rounded edges.
Back flap should be smooth and not hairy.
Back of the bag should have Longchamp and Modele Depose engrave at the back. Although, they both look a like except for the colour, you can see the difference in the Modele Depose part the fake one have much thinner letters than the authentic one.
Finally, the Tag. Not all made in France are authentic remember that. Most made in France are bags that are limited edition like the Eiffel Tower. Most tags are printed like the one on the right side, you can also check the 10 digit codes if it really matches the bag’s identity. Remember that 1515(medium) or 1512(small) is for the sizing of the bag, 578 is the bag model code and the last 3 digit or the 001 on the right sample tag is for the color.
Don’t forget to measure it! Small should measure: 25 x 23 x 16 cm, Medium should measure: 32 x 28 x 17 cm and Large should measure: 40x31x18 cm
