Louis Vuitton Crocodile Lady Bag

Just when we thought we’d found all the mind-bending price information we could handle for the upcoming season, Louis Vuitton has gone and reminded us that one of the many internal changes it’s making is adding more high-priced exotic bags to its selection. The Louis Vuitton Crocodile Lady Bag PM, which made its public debut in the brand’s Fall 2014 runway show, will retail for a staggering $54,500.

This price information comes to us via ILVoeLV.com, which is a reliable source of intel on Vuitton’s machinations, especially when it comes to handbags. The bag includes two finishes of croc and measures slightly over a foot wide at its largest point. There’s no word on how many of these bags will be made, but it’s likely to be an extremely limited piece. After all, only so many people can afford to buy a bag that costs more than 50 grand in the first place.

On top of that, the bag has a, uh, very specific aesthetic. Most bags in this price range are simply exotic recreations of designs that the buying public has already embraced with open arms, like the Givenchy Antigona or Fendi 2Jours, but this one is an untested bag shape from new creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere’s first collection for the brand.

The bag is easily more expensive than any of the other seasonal offerings we found online for Fall 2014, although I’d be shocked if it were made available via Vuitton’s website.

    I think it’s a stunning bag, from the design to the croc! If I had 54K I would totally buy it!

    Great marketing ploy to bring attention to their high end market. Bet they don’t sell too many of them but their more reasonably priced bags will fly out of the stores.

      That’s a good point. Their other bags, which mind you are expensive as well, will seem cheap in comparison to this! $54k…that’s whack

  • missarewa

    I hope they make that bag in a cheaper epi leather. I like what I see

  • edia

    this is only produced in limited numbers and will only be available in some stores. also the bag is actually called dora

    I would never pay that much for a purse it is price of a car

    All of Louis Vuitton’s new prices are ridiculous. A croc Birkin will cost around 55k yet the leather version costs 15k. If the leather version of this bag only retails for 5k then the croc version should be around 30/35k.

    Louis Vuitton are pulling a “Chanel” in upping prices in attempt to reach ultra luxury status without any sort of quality/service increase. Ridiculous.

      but…Vuitton has great quality/service actually, no less than Chanel..all of the designers are nuts with their prices though.. that I agree with .. the problem is, people will spend their last penny to buy high end .. so they keep going up, as everything else is going up

      Chanel, Hermes or Louis Vuitton – all those monies goes to LVMH coffers.

  • MiamiCurated.com

    I prefer the new Hermes clutch with heavy metal software and it’s a steal in comparison at $16K+. http://www.miamicurated.com/fashion/designer-clutches/

    The basic shape of the bag is a perfect vehicle to show-off the skin, but the price is ridiculous. I’m more curious to see which celebrity starlet will get it first.

  • Rashida

    Craziness. But if you have the money, by all means go for it!

  • Newyorking

    So ugly. I can’t believe someone would offer this ugly ugly bag for $54K.

  • Iréne Shûkriya-Dutta Scharief

    No, thank you. But I can see people like Rihanna, PMK or Kim Kartrashian carry this bag only because of the price tag and how atrocious it looks.

  • Aliza Zibkoff

    I think this is one of those things you get shown before you’re admitted to Hell; “Remember THIS bag???”

  • bir

    i like how the croc has a very olden days finish i think it maybe the juxtaposing of the colors still im not falling in love with it . the handles and box both circular use may be just a Little bit too much for my understanding
