It's pretty well known that the 'Big Three' rule designer bag land. Next to Chanel and Hermès, Louis Vuitton is undoubtedly part of the Big Three. The quality, the craftsmanship, the resale value and other big benefits add up to the conclusion that a Louis Vuitton bag is an investment for life. If you're still not sure if you should buy one: we've listed the reasons why you definitely should!
- Best value
One thing that's for sure, is that Louis Vuitton bags are durable. And by that we mean extremely durable. The canvas is so easy to maintain that an LV bag can be worn for decades. It's also relatively well priced for a designer bag, as it's not as expensive as Chanel or Dior. Ofcourse, it does age a little but we think the honey coloured patina gives the bag a little more personality. Oh and not to forget, Louis Vuitton bags maintain their value perfectly, so the resale value is pretty high.
- Throw it like you just don't care
You really don't have to worry about any kind of damage, if you are the lucky owner of a canvas Louis V. bag. The canvas was originally developed for travel gear, like suitcases, so it's a really sturdy material. Don't fear for any scratching as this type of canvas is indestructible. You can easily toss your bag around, no biggie.
- Let's get personal
You're not going to be the only one wearing a Louis Vuitton bag, so you might want to make it your own. Luckily, Louis Vuitton has everything in store (literally) to personalise your bag. You have the Monogram-service, which is great for colour-loving ladies, or just anyone who really wants to stand out. Your other option will be hot stamping your initials, a more toned down way of showing that the bag is yours.
- L'histoire de Louis
The house of Louis Vuitton has been around since 1854, which is a very long time. During that long period, the fashion house has been developing multiple suitcases and bags. Most of them have been around since the beginning of the 20th century, especially the classics. They all have their own personal story, so you're not only buying a bag, you're buying a little piece of history.
- Quality over quantity
We've already covered the fact that the quality of a Louis Vuitton bag is astonishing, but we just want to point out that if you quit buying a new Zara tote bag twice a season (as these simply don't last that long), you'll have gathered the money for a Louis Vuitton Neverfull within 5 years. That Neverfull will stick with you for the rest of your life.
