IMPORTANT READ-ME

Please see post #1 for complete Balenciaga authentication rules. All requests must be posted in this thread. Authentications are not done via private message or in any other thread.

See the link below for examples of the photos needed and the format they should be in (clear, close up, forward-facing, no angles, right way up, no bends in tags).

http://www.louisvuittonbag.net/threads/required-pics-for-balenciaga-authentication.741442/

A link to the listing in question is required.

It is an authenticator’s right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format. If the listing you are interested in is missing photos it is your responsibility to request them from the seller prior to posting in this thread.

Thanks and be well!

hi
yes, it is re-dyed (from blue) (and imho, it's not the best re-dye job i've seen)
the HW on the bag is Rose Gold, and Balenciaga didn't have the 'lampo' zippers in the first season this hw was introduced, so yes, there are some Bals with blank zippers.
Now to authentication - tag is 'blind' i hardly see anything, rivets and bales pictures are missing, please, check to post at the top of the page, there's a link with the examples that we need to help you.
when you get the new pictures, please, make sure you post sharp close-up shots, and in full size, we will have another look
thanks :smile:

I’ve received my bag and posting additional photos as seller (Brandear in Japan) were unable to provide them. Please let me know if I’m missing any photos and help authenticate this B4 Papier. Also would love to know which year/season it might be from? Thank you!!

Hi there! I'm a long time collector and lover of the motor line and wanting to try out a pre-loved Papier...would like some opinion on this listing please as I'm not as familiar with the style. My gut feeling is telling me it looks ok but I've also requested some more photos of the backside of the tag and underside of the zipper and will upload when I have them. Would also love to know which season/year this might be from. Thanks in advance! :smile:

Item Name: Balenciaga Papier B4 Zip Around

Authentic in my opinion, S/S 2017 gris acier. (Gris acier seems to have had two different colour codes, 1320 and 1360).
