Classic LV

Looking Good, Again

During the years I cast the Louis Vuitton show under Marc Jacobs I acquired a number of pieces of monogrammed luggage that I still use all the time. However, I haven’t carried a traditional canvas LV handbag in years—I think that’s about to change. Once again, Vestiaire, The Real Real, Farfetch (has a ton), and Shopbop have many and they look great a bit pre-loved.

  • Couldn’t agree more. I bought a gently used LV cross body bag and have been carrying it all the time. So many compliments!

  • I’ve considered buying an LV bag many times but haven’t, feeling concerned the knock offs are taking over the streets. In those instances when the authentic ones are worn stylishly, they are super handsome, I love the tailored styling, and they seem perfect for travel.

  • Totes agree!

  • I love my LV luggage – amazingly durable and light weight for travel, and though I often resist carrying my monogram handbags for the knockoff issue Paula cited and instead opt for a Celine bag, I find myself returning to a LV simply for its practicality and ease of use. Plus, it always looks smart!

  • What a coincidence, i pulled out my duffel this past weekend after a long hiatus because the roller bags are so easy. I loved seeing my old friend.

  • I bought a LV speedy as a gift to myself for my 30th bday. It typically sits in my closet but now when I pull it out it does look chic. You are so right. And I am not a logo person at all but for some reason it feels ok again!

  • I love my long discontinued LV Chelsea tote. I still think it’s the perfect bag, lightweight, structured so it holds its shape, zips closed, in brown damier so mostly under the radar. Well used & well loved bags are alway chic.

  • I just pulled out my neon green sprouse graffiti speedy 2 weekends ago. I have been obsessed with clutch bags lately and wasn’t carrying a true top handled bag. I often was concerned with fakes as well and have a strong dislike for counterfeiting. However, as a friend told me that if you know yours is authentic, carry it.

  • Funny, I’m not concerned about fakes because they look so fake!
