Everything You Need to Know About Buying a Louis Vuitton Bag

How to Buy A Louis Vuitton Bag

Certain purchases you make in life are scary and intimidating… You might not think twice about spending $40 on an on-sale T-shirt—it’s an easy purchase that won’t decimate your bank account—but buying a designer handbag? Now that’s something that might require a bit more thought. They often ring in at over $1000, and there’s a lot you should think through before you hand over your credit card.

Since we’ve already outlined everything you need to know about buying a Chanel handbag, we thought we’d add another Purse 101 course into our archives, this time honing in on exactly how to buy a Louis Vuitton bag. To get some expert insight, we reached out to Ashley Ricketts, ThredUp’s Luxe manager, for her know-how on what you should look out for, plus which styles to pick and which to avoid.

Ahead, Ricketts dishes her top tips on buying a Louis Vuitton bag. Trust us—once you finish reading through the guide, you may feel better about making a purchase if that’s of interest to you right now.

1. Do Your Research

“Buy from a trusted reseller so you can be sure your purchase is authentic—ThredUp has trained luxury authenticators who triple-check for quality! When making an investment purchase, learn which brands and styles hold their value so you can recoup some costs later when you need a closet refresh. For this, check out ThredUp’s Resale Report or browse styles online.”

2. Think Long-Term

“When choosing your textile, vernis (patent leather) is less likely to hold up over time, and is prone to discoloration and dye transfer. Coated canvas and Epi leather will hold up better.”

4. Thrift Like a Pro

“If you’re buying a pricey bag, you want to make sure it’s absolutely perfect! For a Louis Vuitton bag in top condition, filter by ‘new with tags’ and ‘like new.’ Save your search on ThredUp to be notified whenever new LV items are listed. When you find the perfect one, you’ll be ready to pounce!”

5. Consider Cost Per Wear

“Can you picture yourself wearing this bag for multiple occasions and getting lots of use out of it? While you can snag a bag at up to 90% off resale, there’s still a sizable price tag attached to the most desirable items. Make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck by choosing a versatile accessory that complements your style.”

9. Know How to Spot a Fake

1. “Bags should not be lined in genuine suede/pigskin. Authentic linings include coated canvas, canvas, cross-grain leather, Vuittonite, and Alcantara.”

2. “Note the stitching. This should be clean and even, and there should be the same number of stitches on any given part of two bags of the same style. Generally, the thread will be a heavy wax-coated linen fiber, not thin or weak. The thread will be yellow or brown on almost all classic styles.”

3. “Look for an even pattern. Generally speaking, the monogram pattern should line up over seams and flaps and should be symmetrical from side to side. The pattern should be oriented the same way among bags of any particular style. (However, there are exceptions, especially with older styles!)”

4. “Locate the ‘made in’ stamp. Authentic Louis Vuitton bags should say Louis Vuitton and indicate the country of origin. Since the country can vary, ensure that the factory ID in the date code aligns with the country of origin noted on bag.

5. “Smell it! One major giveaway of a fake bag is a strong chemical odor.”

Louis Vuitton Handbags: Iconic Styles and Price Guide

Estimated Reading Time: 7 minutes • Last updated: 05.30.18

As one of the most prestigious luxury brands today, French fashion house Louis Vuitton is a symbol of quality, durability and practicality, and is synonymous with style and innovation. These core values were essential to Louis Vuitton himself when he began designing luggage suited for travel in 1854. Advances in transportation and the expansion of the travel industry generated demand for now iconic Louis Vuitton accessories such as Louis Vuitton handbags and the Louis Vuitton trunk. Louis Vuitton continues to appeal those looking for a unique design and willing to pay for the quality of make and material.

When considering investment pieces such as Louis Vuitton handbags, as a rule, classic styles such as the Louis Vuitton Neverfull or the Louis Vuitton Speedy will always be in demand and maintain their value more than seasonal bags. However, keep an eye out for limited editions. For example, the limited edition show bags (produced for runway collections) are highly sought after, while exotic leathers such as crocodile, alligator, ostrich and snakeskin are the ultimate prize for any collector. The condition of the bag will also greatly affect its value.

Iconic Louis Vuitton Handbags

The evolution of Louis Vuitton handbags are closely linked to the users’ needs. The first soft-sided bag introduced was the Louis Vuitton Keepall bag, and it remains one of the best-selling travel pieces today. Fashion specialist Meg Randell from Chiswick Auctions says the Keepall is  “always popular – a good sports bag or weekend bag.” She also recommends vintage Louis Vuitton backpacks, noting that the Montsouris are popular at auction and can fetch between £300 for a monogram version to over £1,500 for a limited edition.

A popular fashion staple, traveling Louis Vuitton handbags can be found in wide range of designs, formats, and leathers. Introduced in 1985, Epi Leather was the first of Louis Vuitton’s permanent collection of leather bags. There are also variations of the Louis Vuitton Damier, with Damier Azur introduced in 2006, followed by the Damier Graphite in 2008. The Louis Vuitton Monogram lines are also popular, with Multicolore introduced in 2003 in collaboration with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami; the rare Mini Lin. Classic Monogram styles can be found in auction from £300, but you can expect to pay up to to £2,000 for an artist collaboration edition, such as Yayoi Kusama or Stephen Sprouse.

Below, explore 5 of the most popular Louis Vuitton handbags available in the market today.

1. Louis Vuitton Speedy

Created in 1930, the Louis Vuitton Speedy is a smaller version of the Keepall, the first handbag designed for everyday use and one of the most popular, as Randell notes. Originally released only with the LV Monogram canvas and without shoulder straps, today it is available in different sizes, styles, colors, and leathers, such as the Louis Vuitton Idylle Canvas Speedy, the limited edition Nano Speedy and the Speedy Bandouliere. The classic shape remains the same; the design has been untouched for the past 80 years.

Occasionally the Speedy bag can be found for less than £100, however, prices typically range from $200 to $3,000 for limited editions, such as the World Tour or Monogramouflage.

2. Louis Vuitton Noé

Depending on the style, the size, and the era of the handbag, Louis Vuitton Noé bags range from £192 to £700, with some exceptional pieces fetching higher prices.

3. Louis Vuitton Alma

Introduced in 1934 as the Louis Vuitton Squire bag, it was coined as “Alma” in 1955. Its features include double zips with a padlock, two inside compartments, leather key tag, Toron handles, an additional shoulder strap, and protective bottom studs. Contemporary versions of this Louis Vuitton handbag are available in different leathers, prints, and sizes. In 1992, it was launched in Monogram canvas, which has appeared in different finishings, fabrics, and colors since.

Louis Vuitton Alma bag prices range from as little as £190 to over $3,000 for exotic leathers and limited editions bags.

4. Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Introduced in 2007, Randell says that more recent Louis Vuitton handbags have proven to be popular. With its supple leather, non-rigid sides, durability, attached wallet, all the while being completely reversible, the Louis Vuitton Neverfull was designed with the modern woman in mind. This modern design comes in three sizes in the classic LV materials: Damier (Ebene and Azur), Epi leather and Monogram.

Standard monogram versions at auction fetch sometimes half their original RRP (recommended retail price), which is approximately £920. However, the versions that tend to hold their value over time are the limited editions, which can sell for up to $3,250.

5. Louis Vuitton Lockit

Debuting in 1958, the Louis Vuitton Lockit bag was designed as part of a collection of lighter luggage. Named after the bag’s key feature, a leather patch with a padlock on the side of the bag, it became favored by the elite due to this ‘non pick lock’ design.

Contemporary versions include the Soft Lockit Bag, designed with a softer Veau Cachemire leather with optional shoulder strap, making it more lightweight and practical. Colored variations including Framboise, Plum, Magnolia and Silver fetch up to £1,500 at auction, and limited edition pieces such as textured monogram at £2,000, as well as exotic leathers, which sell up to £10,000.

How to Identify Counterfeit Louis Vuitton Handbags

Similar rules for identifying authentic Louis Vuitton trunks apply to Louis Vuitton handbags. Hallmarks of authentic Louis Vuitton handbags include:

1. Louis Vuitton stamping details

  • The tail on the L is very short
  • The Os are very round and look bigger than the L
  • The Ts are almost touching each other, or are so close that it looks like they are touching
  • Lettering should be thin, clear, and very crisp
  • Study the general font used; it should be aligned perfectly

2. Hardware

In general, most fake Louis Vuitton handbags have poor quality hardware, some even manufactured in plastic. Authentic hardware should be constructed in high quality metals and have clean and crisp lettering.

3. Manufacturing Date Code

All contemporary Louis Vuitton handbags produced from the early 1980s onwards should have date codes located either on interior tags or directly on the interior linings. This also gives the name and place of where the bag was manufactured.
