Louis Vuitton Handbag � A Style For The Sophisticated Woman?

Whisper Louis Vuitton and the eyes of most women will light up immediately! Who would not, since the name is synonymous with high fashion, quality and class. In fact, Louis Vuitton designs are being worn proudly by some of the hottest stars today, including Angelina Jolie, Jessica Simpson and Nicole Kidman. So, do you want a piece of Louis Vuitton luxury for yourself? Well then, how about a LV handbag?

Besides being renowned for their classic yet timeless designs, Louis Vuitton handbags and purses stand out because of the unique LV monogram, with the capital L and V interlocked. After the first Louis Vuitton shop opened in 1854 in Paris, the Louis Vuitton brand has not looked back.

One and a half century may have passed but the LV brand has remained true to its craftsman heritage and superior quality. Every bag is an art piece hand crafted from the finest materials.

Having an extensive variety of designs and sizes is a winning formula for Louis Vuitton. From the white Murakami to the Monogram Denim collection or red Cherry design, from the small Pouchette to the larger white Keepall 45 that is perfect for a carry all or an overnight bag, you name it and there is one LV to fit the occasion.

Talk about the candy-coloured Murakami design and my eyes light up! My husband gave me a white multicolour Leanor for Christmas and I fell in love instantly with the refined and curvy shape that spells femininity. This bag is made of canvas, with natural cowhide ruffle on the flap, hallmark nails, oversized buckles and leather trimmings completing the look. At about 12 by 7 inches, this beauty is roomy enough for all my essentials! While I am perfectly happy with my prized LV Leanor, I must confess I still cannot resist buying more! My next target? The gorgeous Monogram Canvas Lockit Horizontal for a change!

You will find the right Louis Vuitton bag if you look around in the right places. There are good buys on the Internet, but do be careful to distinguish the authentic ones from replicas. As a rule of thumb, LV does not give discount or has overruns.

Demand to see lots of photos of the merchandise and pay extra attention to details like the stitching (should be even and standard on each side) and how the LV monogram are placed (should be symmetrical from side to side). If the seller is not prepared to provide enlarged photographs, which are likely to show all these tell-tale signs, stay away!
