How much do Louis Vuitton bags cost?
Louis Vuitton bag price in the Philippines varies, depending on their size, type, and material. It also depends on where you purchase your Louis Vuitton bags. For instance, purchasing an LV bag from France can be generally cheaper compared to buying it elsewhere.
One of the cheapest Louis Vuitton bags is the Pochette Accesoires. Retailing at PHP 28,000, this small LV sling bag can snuggly fit a Louis Vuitton wallet. However, if you need something bigger, prepare to spend at least PHP 10,000.
How to Know If It’s the Real Deal
It has been proven that Louis Vuitton bags are the easiest branded item to replicate and that’s why you can find Louis Vuitton bags in wholesale markets and resellers. There’s nothing wrong if you decide to buy yourself a Louis Vuitton bag replica, but if you’re seeking for the real deal, there are ways to make sure what you bought is an authentic Louis Vuitton bag.
- First, check the stamping of the LV monogram. It should be symmetrical, thin, clear, and crisp.
- Then, take a look at the stitching. Louis Vuitton uses special techniques to create their durable stitching and the threads will never unravel and remain even throughout.
- Finally, look at the date codes on the Louis Vuitton bags. Different date codes signify where your bag was manufactured (France, Italy, Spain, United States, Switzerland, or Germany). If the date code is different or signifies other countries, your Louis Vuitton bag is likely to be a counterfeit.
How to Maintain Your Louis Vuitton Bag
Caring for your luxury Louis Vuitton bags is not as hard as you think. Make sure when storing the bag that you keep it in the dust cover provided for you in a clean and dry environment. Avoid getting perfumes or other chemicals onto the bag as it can wash off the color and embellishments. Also, consider taking the bag for a regular maintenance work at the Louis Vuitton boutique once or twice per year.
