Thank you so much for your reply!! They gave me a full refund but the preposterous thing is when I returned the bag, they immediately re-listed it online! I have asked them 3 times to take it down, but it is still there!!! Do you know how else to approach this? I have given them bad reviews but the fake bag is still online and someone else might get it!

In the meantime, I am continuing my research to buy another one because I desperately want the bag. Can you check the following 2 ones. The other realrealone look ok to me but I am scared to get it (due to the events). And I am concerned about the fashionphile one, as it has a black label instead of the white numbered ones. Have you seen that before? Hugely appreciate your help with this


Hi! How infuriating that Real Real relisted the fake Falabella! It makes me not want to buy anything from them now! I’m not exactly sure what else you can do. Maybe they can be reported to the Better Business Bureau??
Both of the black foldovers you found are authentic. Fashionphile is a good source but one time I did see a fake on there. I told them and it was immediately removed. I thought they should have given me a coupon or something for telling them but considering how real real just relisted it I guess that’s all I could ask for.

The black tag is actually the new white tags they started using in about 2020. I just bought a new small Falabella crossbody flap bag in black on eBay and it has the black tag cause it’s a new 2021. So no worries there. Unfortunately the bag on Real Real is a little cheaper than Fashionphile. But both companies have good return policies. Hence real reals reaction to knowing they have a fake bag. The fakes are unfortunately getting a little better as I actually bought a black foldover with gold chains and didn’t realize it was fake until I saw the hook for the change purse…and no YKK zipper. I bought it from Mercari and they even authenticated it as real! Usually the lining is a dead giveaway but this bag had the correct material for the lining.

So you’re safe with either bag. That style was my first designer bag purchase and after buying it I became worried about it possibly being fake. That’s how I found this forum. Stella McCartney reps sometimes used to authenticate them for me and they’re the ones who told me a foldover never comes with a change purse. I have since educated myself on authenticating them and have bought and sold many! FYI-There’s a black foldover on Mercari for $350 that’s in like new condition if you have access to that site. I just wish she had more pictures of the inside but you can open a return if it’s not “like new.” I hope that helps and you get your bag soon!!

Hi! At first I wasn’t familiar with this bag but after looking through the pictures I’m sure it’s authentic. Enjoy your new bag!

If this is supposed to be a Falabella mini then it’s definitely not authentic. It has the longer crossbody chain so it should be a mini. Minis don’t have zipped pockets in them. I wouldn’t buy this. Hope this helps!
Thank you so much for your help! I didn’t end up getting it, thank God.

Hi! First post!
I received this Falabella from Fashionphile today. It's my 1st SM bag and I'm not familiar with the details but having read this thread - its a really bad fake, right? There's no YKK on the zipper, and the disc feels thin and cheap.
Thank you for your help.

Hello,
I have another Falabella that I need help getting authenticated:
Item: Stella Mccartney Falabella mini tote
Listing number: 23563004

Seller: Vestiaire Collective
Link: https://www.vestiairecollective.com...bella-stella-mccartney-handbag-23563004.shtml
Comments: What concerns me is the white label on the inside with the serial number.
Please help!
This bag looks correct and is authentic. The white tag with the date code looks right. No red flags with this bag. Hope that helps!

Unless this is just a really old model (and I’ve seen many older bags) I agree that it’s not authentic. I’m surprised Fashionphile sold this cause they’re pretty good at authenticating. I’ve sold them many bags. I would definitely return it. The lining is the wrong material and doesn’t have the logos. Plus no YKK zipper is a huge red flag. Even my Falabella wallets and card holders have YKK zippers. Better to be safe than sorry. Hope that helps.

Good afternoon! Can you please authenticate this bag?
Thank you!

This is no longer available but it definitely was authentic. Hopefully you bought it. I personally prefer the small totes like this one to the foldover style. If you didn’t get it feel free to list any other Falabellas you might find and I’ll authenticate them. Hope that helps!
