Even if you’re new to high-end accessories, the Louis Vuitton Alma Bag probably looks familiar to you. Not only is it one of LV’s icons, but its signature domed shape is one of the most important designs in modern handbag history. The day version of the Alma as we know it was first commissioned from Vuitton by Coco Chanel as a one-off piece based on the larger travel bag of a similar shape, and soon after the Alma handbag went into production in the 1930s.
Since then, Louis Vuitton has made countless versions, sizes, colors and structures of the Alma, which can make it a little difficult to tell what’s currently available and how much it costs. Below, we’ve assembled Louis Vuitton’s lineup of currently available bags, including size comparisons, price information, modeling shots and the materials you can commonly expect to find.
