I'm thinking about getting my girlfriend a Louis Vuitton handbag and just before I buy it (I think its f***ing expensive, well for me anyway)
I just wondered what sort of a rep does a Louis Vuitton handbag have? I mean i like it, but is it footballers wives sort of purchase or chavvy?
(i know thats a bit snobbish but she's the exact opposite)
any info aprreciated, thanks
it depends, whats it like? colour etc?
I don't like any of the Louis Vuitton bags I've seen. Some of them are downright ugly. They're just a status symbol so you could get her one if that's what she'd want.
You could spend the same amount of money and get her a nicer designer handbag.
Personally i hate them. I think they're actually really ugly, and it just screams fashion victim to me.
I had two but i got rid of them, as there are way too many fakes circulating. And there's nothing worse then the multicolour monogram ones, they look sooo cheap! I wouldn't bother with Vuitton until the 'chav factor' has worn off. And if you can't really afford it, then get a cheaper bag!
Don't get it. With so many knockoffs around, the regular LV pattern has been severely tainted.
seen them way too many times, hate them.
i remember going to some turkish market, and you could buy 8 lv patterned bags of any size for £10. even suitcases.
id personally go into Jane Norman and spend £20 on a bag, i like to use a bag that goes with my outfit!! so i buy lots of cheaper ones!
Maybe get mulberry instead, not only are they classier but also more attractive in my opinion at least, Fendi is also classy and less copied. To avoid the 'footballers wife' look just make sure you don't see anything that has been copied in your local market!
imo, a bag as a gift is a risky choice because there's a chance she won't like it. So, unless you're sure of the one she wants, don't get it...Or get her a nice black one because it'll go with everything.
or get her gift vouchers!? Always a winner!
I agree that Fendi bags are gorge but also so are the louis vuitton ones! U mite wana have a look at the new chloe bags aswell. She will love them! Its better spendin money on a good well made bag that will last than a crappy one she will have to replace in a month!
The only problem with Mulberry is that people can always tell which season you bought it in, as they *always* try to out-do themselves every season.
Not that I own one... still saving up... sigh.
