The most recognized shape from Louis Vuitton is their Speedy, a very iconic bag to the brand. And following the Speedy in popularity is the classic Louis Vuitton Alma. The Alma is one of my favorite bags from Louis Vuitton. The shape is as distinctive as they come in the handbag world. It is a true handheld bag which is perfect for the working woman or the trendy gal. Per usual, the Alma has been recreated in every rendition possible, from tacky to stunning. While the Vernis line has not been a line from LV that I covet, it is a coveted line.

Just in for spring is a wide variety of eye-catching Louis Vuitton Vernis Alma colors, including Blue Galactic, Orange Sunset, Green Tonic, Violette, Pomme d Amour, and Amarante. The names of the colors are completely intriguing. In fact, they describe these bold colors beautifully. The Vernis is known for its liquid-like appearance, the embossed patent leather. There is shiny golden brass hardware to accent the bag along with a removable leather key bell and padlock keys. The Alma closes with double zips at the top. The interior is usable and the Alma keeps its shape beautifully, which makes it a great structured handbag choice. Dimensions are 15.2″x 11.2″x 7.3″. Of course there are other Alma options if the Vernis does not float your boat (as it does not for me). I would go with the classic Epi leather. Buy the Vernis Alma for $2,080 at or eLuxury.

    if i’m not mistaken, this comes in pink as well…am i right?

  • Pam

    It does come in pink also, in MM though. What stunning bags, this is on my wishlist!

  • QueenMAB

    Looooove these…I have 2, and intend to aquire more. A beautiful and functional bag. And Pink, Rose Pop, is just THRILLING!

  • M_butterfly

    Very interesting colors. Personally I found the Alma too big perhaps becuase it is structure.

  • va_couturegirl

    I am not a fan of any bag that I can’t throw over my shoulder, but the Vernis line is beautiful. It’s very easy to deal with if you aren’t OCD about fingerprints!

  • Memete

    I love the alma’s shape, but i think it would annoy me eventually that you can only carry it in your hand. Does anyone know if you can carry it in the nook of your elbow (am i making sense here?).
    My favorite version is definitely in the cuir nomade (see this link ), but i think it’s possibly the most fragile leather louis vuitton offers. So i guess the alma will remain a beautiful and impractical dream for me :)

  • MM

    I love it in the rose pop!

  • Ana M.

    I was so tempted to buy the red vernis. But I’m really concerned with how will it look a week later. I don’t give royal treatment to my purses, and I’m afraid those shiny surfaces can easily get scratches all over :(

  • yeh-yeh

    I have to add that Alma comes in MM size at Vernis, so it is not completely comparable to the Monogram, Damier or Epi Alma. But I still agree with the review on being a perfect bag for a career gal, as the size is great for A4s and the offer of colours will make any pantsuit pop. I’m drooling over the new neon colours…

  • Roberta McKenna

    The pink is beyond anything that I’ve ever seen!
    These Alma’s are HUGE………and you need to be tall to let it walk with you!

  • gloria

    the pink is the best i liked it the most so girly and cute !!

  • Fudge

    I have a red vernis not the alma tho, it called bellevue pm… i love it and get compliments all the time…

  • Sheila

    I think they have my bday color,the teal or aqua is all mine ^__^ love it love it love it!

  • poohhunny

    i love vernis but not alma.. cuz i am not a big fan of purse that i can carry it with my hands.. i love the vernis brentwood in amarante.. am thinking about getting it one of these days.. but afraid with the shinny surface it will get scratch easily?

  • Nat

    Hey guys,

    The pink alma is awesome. It’s sold out online now. I bought one and it’s stunning. Don’t worry about finger prints/scratches. I have a vernis wallet in dark color and it has no scratches and finger prints you don’t really see/notice. I heard the lighter colors in the vernis are more likely to get/show scratches but my friend has a WHITE vernis bag and she’s had it for like over a year and it looks great!

    LV is very very durable. Just buy one and enjoy the hell out of it! PINK PINK PINK!!

  • Nat

    Oh and also check out my used luxury handbags I have for sale – I’m a big collector – and email me to purchase.

    Thank you!!

  • lovingthis

  • Kim

    • miss boss( nikki)

      I just got the red 1 as a gift from husband. I really have to say I love it. I really don’t care for loud type of bags. But this red thing is to hot to front on.

  • Amor

    I love LV so much, but vernis alma should have medium size like the monogram & damier, so that we can easy to carry for any occassion. They have very good color collection, but i hope you can have other sizes available.

  • opilier

    So Louis Vutton has this purse available in 5 colors online, and only two shown here are actually available. So are the rest knock offs or can they be purchased in the store?

  • hunibuni

    I have this bag and I am mad for it. I was in Manhattan in May at the Sephora Store and this bag was stared at and almost got me molested by a sales girl who actually walked up and said “Can I touch it??” I’ve carried it to business meetings as well as fashion shows, dinner dates and clubs. It’s a head turner where ever you take it.

    My color is Amarante

  • Nora

    I’m in love with this Louis Vuitton vernis Alma MM handbag in the pink / rose pop color! I have to have it, but I can’t afford to pay $2000 and besides I don’t see the hot pink color online anymore…. Does anyone know where I can get it (not a replica) for less and in the hot pink color? Is it called rose pink or hot pink?!? I’m so confused because, I remember seeing it at Bloomingdales almost a year ago, so what is the hot pink color name that I’m talking about? You know, it also had charms on the handle if I remember correctly..

    • Lvlover

  • miss boss( nikki)

    Please tell me I can find lv shoes to match. I really want to carry my bag but I’m more of wearing mostly black so I need the shoes so I can be the hottest soon to be grandma. Lol but for right now it will continue to be in the cloth cover. Except for when I pull it out to just admire it. Lol

  • Flavor2u

    • Ritzyragz

       I am selling the Orange Sunset, if you are interested please email me at

  • Mark

    Don’t buy the Vernis in lighter colors. There is a known problem with color transfer. That is, if you wear denim the color will permanently transfer to the bag and it will be ruined. I bought my wife a Vernis bag in a pearl finish for Christmas a year ago and it now has color “splotches” from using it while wearing denim. LV will not replace, repair, or exchange the bag. You will be out the $2,000.

  • llovera
