I’ve got 99 problems but a Gucci handbag ain’t one! Or maybe it is.

 

As one of seven girls, I remained astounded as I watched my sister save every penny to buy her next luxury designer piece. But hey, I girl wants what a girl wants!

 

And you’d agree with me that Gucci purses are one of the most sought-after luxury accessories. This coveted Italian brand makes some of the finest collection of bags each year.

 

For fashionistas on a budget, Gucci handbag dupes offer a taste of the luxury appeal for a fraction of the price.

 

So what is the difference between designer dupes/look-alikes and designer replicas/knock-offs? Glad you asked!

 

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DESIGNER DUPES & KNOCK-OFFS

Bottom line, replicas are an illegal representation of authentic pieces passed off as the original product. Replicas are made by someone other than the rand and the damage the reputation of brands. Don’t buy replicas!

 

Dupes are products inspired by other designers. These do not include trademarked logos, monograms or patented designs. We’ve seen household names like H&M, Zara and Asos create affordable designer-inspired pieces.

 

Don’t bother trying to pass a replica as an authentic product. They are easy to spot and they make you look cheap. Don’t do it! Instead, treat yourself to affordable dupes like these Gucci handbag look-alikes.

    But.

    You went into great detail to describe what dupes are versus knock offs and then state that the illegal items will make you look cheap if you wear them – so don’t wear them.
    And then.
    You feature said illegal item/knock off in your post. I had to triple check to make sure my eyes were correct. Do you see the irony?

      Hi Verlia, I get what you’re trying to say but this is what I wrote, “Don’t bother trying to pass a replica as an authentic product. They are easy to spot and they make you look cheap. Don’t do it! Instead, treat yourself to affordable dupes like these Gucci handbag look-alikes.

      Dupes are not illegal/knockoffs. Brands (luxury or not) copy each other all the time. An example that comes to mind is the BCBG version of the $900 Valentino Rockstuds and the $1,600 JW Anderson Pierce bag with its striking resemblance to the Hermés Torque Fastening Bag. As far as copyright is concerned, the no-go area in the fashion industry is using the registered trademark of a brand. This is the same reason that Topshop can make and sell a look-alike of the Gucci Dionysus bag without getting sued as no trademarked element was used in the Topshop version. And the same reason that Burberry is suing Target for using their classic check pattern (a Burberry registered trademark).

      This is why designer dupes are called look-alike products and designer-inspired. If you take a closer look at the dupes above, you’ll notice that none of the items I shared have Gucci trademarks (correct me if I’m wrong). I hope this clarifies the difference. And thanks for sparking this conversation as I too thought the same thing before learning about the difference.
