The Louis Vuitton Neverfull remains one of the most beloved everyday bags in the luxury handbag world. With diverse offerings including classic Monogram, Damier and Epi leather, the bag comes in a variety of sizes and is among the bags I see most commonly carried and that people search for on our site. The price is fair, the bag is light and it fits a bunch of stuff--that makes for a great bag.
But many argue the Neverfull has reached saturation, which speaks to its popularity but also leaves many shoppers wanting something a little different. The Louis Vuitton Lockme Cabas may be the answer you're looking for. This bag has everything you could want for an everyday tote: it's luxurious, spacious, beautiful--and it's Louis Vuitton.
Park of the Lockme family, the Lockme Cabas is also said to be lightweight (I need to go try it on in store to let you know for sure) and offers clean lines and a simple, shopper-style tote body. The LV Twist Lock closure has become a favorite for the brand and its consumers alike, and while it is easily recognizable as LV, I don't feel the lock overpowers the bag. The exterior features soft calfskin, while the interior has microfiber lining with soft calfskin trim. On the inside, you'll also find a zipped pocket and two flat pockets. The bag's overall dimensions are 16.9 x 11.0 x 6.7 inches, with two top shoulder straps. Louis Vuitton doesn't list how long the strap drop is, but from the photos it looks like it offers ample space to carry it over your shoulder comfortably. Louis Vuitton offers four color combinations: Vanille Noir, Noir, Bois de Rose, and Rubis.
While the Neverfull varies in price from $1,180 to just over $2,000, I actually think the price of the Lockme Cabas is quite reasonable. The price of this tote is $2,490, which makes it well in line with both the brand's pricing structure and what else is available on the top-tier luxury market. Buy via Louis Vuitton online.
