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!
Louis Vuitton Twist MM
I love the twist closure on the LV Twist, I am not sure what exactly about the LV turn lock that gets me but I think it looks super smart. I especially like this bag in the denim epi leather (also love the black epi), the denim epi leather balances the large LV logo hardware to make the bag look more casual. The Twist worn over the shoulder or crossbody gives an effortless look. One thing I am uncertain of is the wavy bottom – it does give the bag a unique look but for some reason I think I would have prefer a simpler flat bottom.
Louis Vuitton Lockme II
Another simple and beautiful bag I like from LV is the Lockme II. The briefcase-like shape of the bag makes it a great option for work. At the same time, the big flap, top handle design, shoulder strap, and hardware make it great for casual and dressy occasions. My favorite color is the prune rose poudre. The Lockme line also comes in a few other designs, I am a huge fan of the Lockme II, I also like the Lockme Backpack but I am not a huge fan of the Cabas and the Lockmeto.
Louis Vuitton Alma
The LV Alma was on my wish list for a long time but eventually it was removed because it was no longer high on my priority list. However, I decide to include the Alma on my list because I still and will forever like this handbag. I like the BB and PM size and prefer the epi and vernis leathers over the canvas. Unfortunately the Alma BB shoulder strap is non-adjustable and is sadly wayyy too long for me (this is also one of the reasons I removed the bag from my wish list).
Louis Vuitton Neverfull
The LV Neverfull was my first designer handbag after my summer internship during my junior year in college. I purchased the GM size in the damier azur print. I used to love big bags, seriously the bigger the better – bigger bags look more casual and I can easily lug around all my textbooks and notebooks. I picked the damier azur print because the whitish-blue looks so clean and crisp! Overall, I still love my Neverfull but I barely use it anymore because I prefer smaller bags now and I don’t like the patina on the leather straps. It’s a shame that LV decided to include a small pouch with the Neverfull and increased the price significantly. Personally I don’t want the small pouch and wished LV had an option of letting the shopper pick the option with or without the small pouch.
Hope you enjoyed this post! Tastes definitely change, I am interested to see in a few years which bags I am still obsessed with and which bags that I’m glad I didn’t purchase!
