Louis Vuitton Almas

For every brand there are a few signature bags that everyone seemingly knows and loves. For some reason my brain is not working great right now so my example is beyond obvious: What bag to you associate with Hermes? For all the wise-guys who didn’t say Birkin, you should be ashamed of yourselves for not taking my game seriously ;-) When it comes to Louis Vuitton there are a few signature bags that stick out in my head. The Speedy is one for sure, but so is the Alma. There are some beautiful Alma’s that can not go unnoticed right now.

Louis Vuitton Damier Alma

The Louis Vuitton Damier Alma is an alluring shape with the chic Damier print and is accented with smooth ebony leather trim. This bag is the perfect size for work or fun measuring 12″ L x 9″ H x 7″ W. The Alma opens wide with a double zip top closure to show off terracotta canvas lining and a cell-phone and patch pocket. Add the Damier canvas to the Alma line via eLuxury for $835.

Louis Vuitton Epi Leather Alma

But if you are looking for no print or pattern and only simply divine leather, give your attention to the Louis Vuitton Epi Leather Alma. Available in myrtille or black/silver this Alma shows off gorgeous textured Epi leather and is accented with smooth leather trim. While the myrtille is gorgeous, the black/silver makes me go ga-ga. There is a full double zipper closure with a padlock which opens to alcantara lining along with a small inside pocket and cell phone pocket. This Alma also measures 12″ L x 9″ H x 7″ W, and looks like the perfect work bag to me. Buy it through eLuxury for $990.

    Alma is great ! I have it for everyday use. Big but beautiful. The design is so elegant.
    I prefer Damier for its chocolate checkerred luxury looks.

  • Roxie

    This is such a classic shape. I love the understated elegance of LV’s Epi Leather line, but with the Alma in a vibrant color like red or orange it’s to die!

  • amsmead

    My mom got the Damier, at first I didn’t like it, but it has grown on me a lot.

  • Two-Socks

    Quite honestly, this looks reminiscent…almost exactly … like the Diane von Fursterberg Color on the Go collection – specifically the Boarding Bags. I have one, but it has white handles and a pretty pastel blue color. This is only to my eye by the photograph though. Maybe it’s different in person? But since it’s so similar, it’s kind of disappointing at the same time…and I like my pastel blue bag a lot better.

    Damier alma is a classic and will stand the test of time. There will be IT bags along the way, but the alma will stay..

  • Mike

  • Wan Shin

    I love the Alma range – it’s really worth the money to invest in something classic and elegant. I have the Epi Alma in ivory and the timeless Damier.

  • Trey

    Thgis Epileather looks very much to me like glorified vinyl!!!

  • Trey

    My wife just recieved an Epileather wallet and I looked it over…looks so much like vinyl.

    • Ivy

      That’s because it is. But it’s not “normal” vinyl where it will break on you within a few uses.

  • Trey

    And so we took it to LV in NYC (live there) and got it authenticated. They says its the real deal but still not convinced its NOT vinyl…I think I will tear it up and see if its really leather or not.

    • Sara Clarke

      In response to Trey…Anyone who thinks Louis Vuitton would use vinyl instead of leather does not deserve to OWN Louis Vuitton. Shop elsewhere and let the rest of us enjoy this wonderful brand.

      • Ivy

        Sarah – I have personally bought a Louis Vuitton purse from a boutique in Paris and I can guarantee you that most of their bags are not made by leather; especially since the stores there will give you a disclaimer and confirm that Louis Vuitton does not use leather.

        Instead, they use a special vinyl that won’t tear and is supposedly “strong enough to build a boat from”. That’s not to say that they don’t ever use real leather… for some bags, they do (for example, ostrich and alligator in their new Spring Collection)! Most of the monogram “classic” bags, however, are NOT made from real leather.

  • Janelle

    Epi leather design inspiration came from the texture leather used in 1920 of Louis Vuitton. This leather is made of plant juice and processed by painting techniques.

  • Julie

    LV is the best to OWN and to be proud of what you wear! Alma is out of time…classic, charming, elegant, day/ night, with “small black dress” or jeans… you just need to have it!I gonna to buy black Epi – the most suitable variant for me… I enjoy already Eva Clatch Damier and Palermo monogramms, but classic black Alma is a must for any elegant clothes.

  • Naggy

    The Alma looks best in a black epi and one of the vernis versions. (ipad)

  • Rahida

    i was thinking to buy this Louis Vuitton Epi Leather Alma in yellow color from a friend of mine’s collection with the price of $300. is it consider very cheap?
