A Storied History

When it comes to designer bags, Louis Vuitton is not only one of the oldest designer brands out there (beating out Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Prada, and more), but it is also one of the most recognizable Houses in the world. Owning a Louis Vuitton bag (particularly a Speedy, Alma or Noé or Keepall) is like owning a rich piece of fashion history. Some of Louis Vuitton’s earliest designs, like the bags mentioned earlier, are still relevant and beloved today (and for a good reason). Purchasing one of these styles comes with the security that your bag will never go out of style.

Resale Value

There is a reason why collectors value the so-called holy trinity of handbags (Chanel, Hermès and yes, Louis Vuitton) when looking at a handbag purchase strictly from an investment purpose. Louis Vuitton bags, and monogram bags especially, tend to hold their value (or even increase in value) moreso than any other brand. Styles can retain or increase in value by up to 119% according to the RealReal. Rising prices also have a large impact on ROI. As Louis Vuitton, like most luxury brands, increases its prices at least once a year, that Speedy 30 you purchased back in 2010 for $690 now retails for a whopping $1,160.

Durability

Louis Vuitton’s coated canvas is one of the most durable materials in the game. Originally created for use on the brand’s travel trunks, it is one of the most recognizable materials in the Louis Vuitton lineup. Even people who aren’t true fans of the brand know the history and craftsmanship behind this classic material. The material’s durability shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, considering the travel trunks back in the day needed to withstand a lot of wear and tear. It’s not only pretty resistant to scratches, but it is also water-resistant, so you can grab and go and not worry about babying your bag.

Monogram Canvas = Cassic Now and Forever

The last and most important reason you should invest in Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas is that it has remained a classic for well over 100 years. It was created by Louis Vuitton’s son George in 1896, and it has already proven itself to stand the test of time, so you can rest assured that your bag will never go out of style. It will remain a timeless icon that will be loved and used for decades and generations to come.

I love the patina on vachetta. It makes every bag unique and just has that lovely vintage look as it ages. Out of all the LV materials I find the monogram canvas to be the most graceful as it ages.

The ubiquitousness of the monogram makes it undesirable to me. It is everywhere. The fakes are everywhere. You look at a resale website and 25% of the bags are are LV monogram.

While I do agree with the imitated bags. But I really enjoy standing next to them when I carry mine and just give the funny look lol..

Hear hear!

I have four LV bags now… and none of them are in traditional monogram canvas (2 Vernis, an épi and a Vernis). Sure they’re not the og print… they’re better.

I like the monogram canvas, it is just so durable! What I don’t care for is the vachetta leather they use for the handles and trim on many of the monogram bags. I have two monogram canvas but both have black or dark brown leather trim and handles.

I know they can have the vachetta lighten in the bag spa.

Love LV coated canvas! Love my LV epi bags too, but must admit I reach for my canvas classics more. Easy to be out and about with the kids. I’ve turned my monogram Speedy 30 as one of my go-to travel bags. That thing can fit a ton and easy to carry. Bought it 7 years ago, and love the vachetta as it ages. I throw it in a dust bag if I’m worried about spills when traveling.

4 reasons not to own a LV mono bag:
– the colors
– the untreated vachetta that looks haggered after getting rained on
– it’s just plastic coated sail cloth sold for top dollar
– it’s too showy and desperate. Don’t hate me! I just still don’t get monograms or other very visible branding.

It’s so tacky – I wouldn’t even wear it if someone gave it to me for free – much prefer goyard ❤️
