I was wondering, if a Fendi Magic Bag has a hologram tag inside, does this authenticate the item?
Yes & no...It has a hologram tag, but that alone does not make the Bag authentic. Many fakes have hologram tag, especially those that do not have a stitched number/letter code beneath the hologram, or those that have an incorrect code.
Which codes are correct? I received a Fendi Magic Bag for a gift and I want to make sure it's authentic.
I would recommend you photograph the leather strip serial number tag & hologram tag clearly, interior fabric & interior look, front, back and bottom photos, leather close up if at all possible and submit to the -- Authenticate this Fendi-- thread. You can use photobucket.com or other photo hosting site to show TPFers the pictures.
You can go into Neiman Marcus and order it from a Fendi catalog and have it shipped directly to you in the zucca print. I ordered the magic bag in the zucca from the catalog myself. I live in Atlanta and they don't carry Fendi at NM in-store so you buy from a catalog. I'm not sure if they have a catalog where you live but its worth a try. And on the plus side shipping is free if you can wait ten business days. Hope that helps.
