You can't know if it's authentic just by looking at the pictures provided on their web site. You can, however purchase the bag, take the pictures required for authentication, and have the volunteers here on tPF authenticate the bag for you. According to DSW they have a 60 day return policy so should the bag turn out to be a fake you'll just send it back.

It's probably fine but as others say it's not their pics that are the acid test it's the bag that they send you that counts.

I don't know if you are in love with the bag you saw and need one very flat but the one on Gucci.com is about the same volume-wise. Buying direct from Gucci at least you have full peace of mind (as well as a year guarantee) . Here's the link:
I'm Brandy, a Shoe Lover with DSW! All of our Gucci bags come with authenticity cards and official duster bags. Another way to verify authenticity is to check for a serial number printed on the back side of the leather tag inside. Please email us at email@example.com if there are any questions we can help answer!
