Is Cosette authentic or not?

Hey Girls!

We recently received this weird question online… and we wanted to shed a little bit of light on it ūüôā

All our bags are authenticated when we buy them and are delivered with official labels AND certificates from both brands and third party like Entrupy!

Entrupy-counterfeit-scanner-3

Cosette is only reselling luxury bags through official distribution channels! This is actually our business model to bring luxury designer bags from Europe and you need to take in consideration years of making (as all Luxury brands now tweak details every year in their collections to fight against fake makers).

Indeed we bring in-season couture from highly prized designers in Europe right here to you in Australia. In our exclusive boutiques and website you will find the most coveted, internationally renowned brands at cut-prices.

Thanks to our exclusive networks and high-end buyers with years of experience in Paris and Milan, we are able to source only the very best, for less. By taking advantage of the opposite seasons between Europe and Australia, we bring you the most sought-after trends long before they would ordinarily hit southern shelves. Our premium brands put you in the front row with runway-worthy style and wardrobe pick-me-ups of only the very highest quality without the designer price tag.

We aim to provide our customers with products of the highest standard and quality. If you have received an item with a defect, please contact us so we can guide you through the exchange, credit or returns process and help resolve the problem as swiftly as possible. Please note that we’ll need a photo or two showing the defect/fault, which will speed up the process for you.

Nowadays our industry is facing a lots of crooks online who are trying to scare customers on “un-reliable” forums then sell fake bags on eBay. Be careful with the informations you can find on these forums.

You can find more details and information about these forums here: https://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/the-purse-forum-c291013.html (even eBay management has been complaining about these forums).

See ya!

Hi All,

We have been informed by one of our client that some defamation threads about our business (and our competitors) have been posted onto a forum.

Our business model is based on the inverted seasons between Europe and Australia. When the season ends in Europe we purchase excess stock from well-established partner brands in Italy and in France including labels such as Gucci, Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Prada… This allows the authorised European retailers to sell their overstock in bulk at a lower prices. We pass on the lower prices to our customers in Australia.
We have found that generally Australian consumers are not used to having such low prices for luxury products and we are proud to change this.

We understand that there is a lot of misinformation on this forum that can be quiet confusing.

For your awareness COSETTE is an authorised re-seller of all labels carried both online and in our retails stores. We only sell authentic products coming directly from the brands licensees in Europe which we re-sell in Australia under the ACCC’ parallel imports law : https://www.accc.gov.au/business/treating-customers-fairly/selling-parallel-imports

Due to the locations of our stores at the MCA Government building in the Rocks and the high end shopping district, our products regularly go through verification of authenticity in order to successfully trade in those locations.

We also have been partnering with the only true authentication Artificial Intelligence system called ENTRUPY (https://www.entrupy.com)

entrupylarge

This third party (neutral) system is allowing us to check all stock coming from Europe but also to check all stock coming from individuals for our new marketplace (launching soon).

All other authentication companies review luxury designer items with only a few pictures without taking under consideration the year and batch of production of the models for each labels. Few details are changed from one batch to another in the manufacturing process of the models in order to limit the counterfeits. Not taking these under consideration leads to mistakes in authenticating.

Here are few certificates of some of the items we have on sell:

And you can of course request and verify your own certificate!

At COSETTE we take pride in our reputation for providing luxurious items at affordable prices. All of our items are 100% authentic and brand new. We carry a wide range of designer shoes, clothing, accessories and leather goods that we sell in our retail stores and online. All products come with the branded authenticity/care cards, serial numbers and branded dust bags.

#WangFest: Inside Alexander Wang’s epic New York Fashion Week show

Alexander Wang sure knows how to rock a runway show.

Fortunate were those who happened to be in the area when the crazy #WangFest party bus unexpectedly stopped for a guerrilla runway show, before reaching Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood where the official show took place.

(And we’re not even talking about those who attended the glamourous after-party that followed…)

Led by the absolutely-gorgeous Kaia Gerber (who made quite an entrance for her first NYFW), Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid embraced the Wang attitude, wearing feathered and crystal-encrusted headpieces emblazoned with ‚ÄúWangover‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúParty Animal‚ÄĚ.

Alexander Wang’s signature lies in his party-girls outfits, and although this collection could have been expected, it was not disappointing. Mini dresses, deconstructed shirts and lingerie, torn jeans, leather and blazers… Everything was mixed and matched for the coolest effect.

Chlo√©-ssentials for this season

Every fashion addict loves Chloé bags. Classy styles, fancy materials and signature details: this is all we expect from our designer pieces.

Chlo√©’s Spring-Summer and Fall 2017 collections that just arrived at Cosette do not make exceptions.
So, what will be the most-coveted bags this season?

CHLO√Č FAYE GRAINED LEATHER SHOULDER BAG

Chloé’s iconic Faye shoulder bag is probably THE must have this season. It has been developed in a variety of sizes, materials and colours so that everyone can find their own.
If we trust the gorgeous Olivia Culpo and Chrissy Teigen, we should go for a medium size and a caramel colour. We cannot disagree with them: this shade of brown matches every outfit, and this not-too-small-not-too-big size is adapted for an everyday use. Little bonus: the shoulder strap can be removed to turn this shoulder bag into a fancy clutch ūüėČ

CHLO√Č MINI FAYE SMOOTH AND SUEDE LEATHER BACKPACK

Whether you are a traveller like Aimee Song, or an active city-dweller like Alessandra Ambrosio, the Mini Faye backpack is ideal for one who needs to feel as free as stylish.
Its compact size makes it easy to carry, and yet, its unique compartment is roomy enough to fit all your daily essentials. This bag can be carried in the back, but also on the arm thanks to a removable top handle. And as convenience can rhyme with elegance, this little beauty combines refined details such as a Suede leather flap and Chloé’s signature hoop and chain closure.

CHLO√Č SMALL DREW GRAINED LEATHER SHOULDER BAG

The Drew is probably Chloé’s most popular bag from a while now (Sincerely Jules and Olivia Culpo are just random examples amongst all fashion icons who got charmed), and however we can’t get enough of it.
We love the combination of a simple round shape and flap with glamorous gold details. In the latest version of this bag, the chain strap is linked so you can either carry it on the shoulder with double chain or on cross-body with single chain. For that reason, we even love it more!

Spring will be feminine! with Isabel Marant

Heads up! Isabel Marant’s Spring/Summer 2017 Collection freshly arrived in our COSETTE stores, bringing for the coming season a highly feminine boho-chic style.

Isabel Marant Spring Summer 2017 Campaign visual

The words ‚ÄėEveryday Feminity‚Äô ‚Äď also translated by ‚ÄėFeminine utility‚Äô ‚Äď were used by Isabel Marant herself to describe the spirit of her SS17 collection.

This season, workwear silhouettes are adorned with ruffles, floral prints and statement sleeves, when jumpsuits and baggy pants meet with an unusual ratio of dresses and skirts.

But do not get me wrong: this flirty, romantic feel does not detract the cool and effortless style that makes the designer’s recognition!

Let me share with you a sneak peek of the selection now available in-store at COSETTE.
