MISC. TIPS BELOW
5) Kate Spade does not make patchwork purses, backpacks or purses with two small pockets on the front. Although patchwork purses are popular right now, the company hasn't made this product in years
6) Look out for "wild style" bags. Faces, awkward stripes, French toile, patchwork(mentioned before), camouflage, tattoo style or anything of this nature on the purse are all signs of a FAKE!
7) Big metal studs or metal feet on the bottom of the bag are signs of a FAKE!
