By now it’s safe to assume that you are familiar with the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, but if you’re not then I’m guessing you’ve stumbled onto PurseBlog by mistake, in which case welcome! One of the most prominent bags on the luxury market, the Neverfull was released back in 2007 and is still winning the hearts of purse lovers worldwide today. Easily identifiable, you can’t turn a corner these days without spotting a Neverfull or two in the wild. Often the gateway for shoppers into the premier handbag world, it is arguably one of the brand’s most successful designs of all time. PurseBlog has covered the Neverfull extensively in the 12 years since it was released and for very good reason. Still generating a strong buzz among purse lovers, it has that it-factor, cool vibe that just won’t quit, and it is my opinion that it has earned its title as a new classic for Louis Vuitton. Shoppers on the Louis Vuitton website are often met with the dreaded “call for availability” when trying to add the Neverfull, to their cart, proving this bag is still in high demand.
I own the Neverfull in all three of the available canvases (Monogram, Damier Azur, and Damier Ebene), I love it just that much! While I adore each of the canvases I own, I am crossing my fingers and toes that we will see it released in the Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, or Reverse Monogram canvases one day. A gal can dream, right? Of course they’re not the rarest bags in my collection, but that doesn’t make them any less special in my eyes. In fact, I still get excited when I see one in the wild, which I frequently do due to its popularity. My monogram Neverfull with beautiful pivoine lining was my first premier designer bag purchased directly from the boutique rather than from a consignment luxury shop. I still remember my heart beating out of my chest as they swiped my card for payment, but it was true love at first sight between me and the Neverfull. I had to have it, even though I had never spent that kind of money on a bag before.
Why I Love The Neverfull
Of course there are the obvious reasons I love the Neverfull. It’s wonderfully lightweight and roomy, and the rumors are true, it’s literally never full. You can purchase this bag in 3 sizes, which from smallest to largest are the PM, MM, and GM sizes. I personally own the MM size in each of mine, which is the just right, Goldilocks, size for me. You can cinch the sides of the tote to give it an entirely different shape, which I think looks especially cute with the GM size. The price is relatively affordable for such a large premier designer handbag ($1,320), especially when you compare the price against other bags on the market. When you purchase a Neverfull it comes with a removable pouch , which is one of my favorite features of this tote. It’s basically getting two bags for the price of one, and I use mine as wallets and to carry my cosmetics. I’m always surprised the pouch comes included in your purchase since they sell like hotcakes on the resale market, but you won’t find me complaining about it if LV is willing to include them.
It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of big tote bags, but I fell in love with the Neverfull because of how versatile it is. I wear mine to brunch with friends, work, travel, and running errands. To quote Nigel from The Devil Wears Prada, “I live my life in it”. That quote resonates so strongly with me and I feel that way about my Neverfull, it truly is my constant companion! It fits under my shoulder comfortably and holds everything I need, making it perfect for almost any occasion. My friend Hannah uses her Damier Ebene Neverfull every single day and refers to it lovingly as her child. We talk about our love of this bag often, and she has expressed on multiple occasions that she can’t believe how well hers has stood the test of time, and I have to agree with her. I use mine very regularly and they barely show any sign of wear, other than the natural darkening of the vachetta. I can be known to baby my bags, but not my Neverfulls. They truly can take a beating and are hands down the most durable bags in my collection. Hannah even spilled an entire bottle of diet coke inside of her Neverfull (the horror!), and we were both shocked when it didn’t leave a stain on the exterior or interior of the bag. If you are someone who doesn’t baby your bags, the Neverfull is for you!
To my Neverfull, thank you for enduring all that I have put you through. I am still head over heels in love with this bag and I would be first in line to purchase another if additional canvases become available!
