Why buy a Louis Vuitton bag?

by on March 29, 2011

Alright, I’m not going to think a handbag is cute just because of the label that is on it. The idea of buying something strictly based on the principle, ‘because it’s designer,’ is not tasteful.

For awhile I was anti-designer handbags in general. However, recently something in my beautiful brain has clicked over and I’ve really started to like certain ones–especially Louis Vuitton. Necessarily, I had to look into this matter to see how quality these bags are and how much of their value is purely label.

Here is some information I found:

Louis Vuitton has been a top designer in quality bags for decades (huge credibility)

“Vuitton is no ordinary product, but one built on craft and heritage” ¬†-times online

-These bag are water proof AND fire proof -DANG …So they’re like a safe you could hide in your closet, come floods or fire, your stuff is good! ;) This is because of the material they are made from:¬†canvas for waterproofing and PVC for fireproofing.

-They’re not floopy but can stand by themselves because of the strong material they’re made from (creating a solid appearance and firm curves).

-All Vuittons are handmade

-It is a company policy to control the number of bags that get into the market so you can only buy one type of Vuitton per client–CRAZY.

-They’re not fad bags and are made to be classic while styles may change.

The Lowdown:



Now I’m not saying I’m going out today to buy one, this just gives me something to think about. I’m also not discounting that while these are extremely well made bags, they are also highly representative of a social status, which is why they are very much sought after. So although their price point can seem overwhelming for some, it’s good to know that they have some quality to back it up.

Just thought I’d let you in on some facts I found. We should always be informed and educated shoppers ;)

I received bag # 3 as a gift from my fiance for my birthday recently. I don’t want to ask him how much he paid for it (obviously!), but I am dying to know! Does anyone have a clue on the price (bag #3)?
He also bought another one to match. It is the same exact pattern (brown & gold) but the bag is a little more square. It is about the same size as the other.
Thanks

Guys, if you go to the LV UK website you can see the prices in Sterling Pounds. Then you might do a guesstimate on how much each bag costs in your respective countries, taking into consideration taxes.

For Nicole, which bag no. 3? The no. 3 at the top is called the Speedy while the one at the bottom is called the Alma.
