My Favorite Louis Vuitton Handbags

Today’s post is about Louis Vuitton handbags that I like. I have two handbags from LV: the Neverfull GM in Damier Azur and the Eva in Damier Ebene (I have recently sold the Eva because I have too many small bags and I never reach for the Eva anymore). Louis Vuitton is one of the most innovative design houses; the Company offers many new designs along with its classics. The handbags on this list are my current favorites that are available!

Louis Vuitton Capucines
The Louis Vuitton Capucines has been on my wish list since the bag was introduced in 2013. I love the design of the top handle attached to the two rings, the trapezoidal tote shape, and the thick and grainy Taurillon leather. I can’t wait to add this handbag to my collection; my ideal Capucines will be in hot pink (i.e., poppy) with the python handle in the BB (or MM) size. My two reservations with the bag is the high price and the closing flap on the BB size is will likely get in the way.

Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis
For the longest time, I get why most handbag aficionados loved this bag but I only admired it from afar and never had the desire to add it to my wish list. Then LV introduced the Pochette Metis in the empreinte leathers and I had to resist so hard. I especially love the pink empreiente leather but I don’t want to baby a light leather bag so I am waiting for LV to introduce a few more colors (a maroon version would be so lovely)! Overall I love the shape of the Pochette Metis and can totally see myself using it frequently.

Louis Vuitton Petite Malle
This bag was a love at first sight for me. The only issue is the price tag. Although, all designer bags are priced at insane levels these days, it’s so hard to justify paying $5K for a bag that only holds your phone and maybe some keys. However, purely from an emotional (and not logical) standpoint, this bag is incredible! The design is so stunning, honestly this bag can make every outfit look pulled together. It was a brilliant strategy for Nicolas Ghesquière to introduce a mini bag modeled after LV’s beautiful Maison trunks. Honestly, I don’t like the monogram canvas print but on the Petite Malle the monogram looks the best!

Louis Vuitton NeoNoe
The Neonoe is LV’s simplified version of the bucket bag. To be fair, LV does offer the more traditional bucket bag including Louis Vuitton Noe and Lockme bucket. However, I like the Louis Vuitton Neonoe more because of the simpler tie in the front, the contrasting color interior and the length of the shoulder strap. Hopefully they will make more versions of this handbag, I think the epi leather or an empreinte leather exterior with contrasting interior colors would be perfect!
