Fast cars give the big boys an adrenalin rush. For us girls, it’s traveling with Louis Vuitton luggage. Anything LV will surely make heads turn your way. It’s become a status symbol not only for the girls–men have been spotted sporting LV handbags and luggage as well. Think of Louis Vuitton bags as an extension of your inherent sophistication. Carrying a Louis Vuitton luggage will give you an image of class and style.
Who the heck is Louis Vuitton?
Here’s a short history lesson for you: Louis Vuitton was Napoleon III’s official luggage handler way back in the early 19th century. He gained favor from the French emperor by inventing airtight and stackable luggage. After his stint with French royalty, Louis Vuitton opened up his first shop in 1854. He gained worldwide recognition when his bags won the gold medal in the 1889 World’s Fair. In 1892, his bags became a global brand.
LV and a Rich Girl Like Me
My love for LV luggage and bags has nothing to do with me being able to afford them. Yes, they truly cost an arm and a leg but you get what you pay for. Even if I weren’t rich (God forbid that to happen), I’d save up all the money I have to buy a Louis Vuitton bag.
What makes them so special? It’s the fact that all Louis Vuitton products are carefully handcrafted by expert artisans. Each bag or luggage took a lot of loving effort to design and manufacture. Sure, there are other bags out there. But they just don’t carry the same oomph! like LV. And these other brands just don’t last as long as Louis Vuittons. Either the bags get mangled up in a couple of years or the bag’s brand fades into obscurity.
Beware of the Knockoffs
Celebrities and socialites love Louis Vuitton. It’s so popular that an underground market for fake Louis Vuitton bags has become quite profitable. But we can easily tell the knockoffs from the real deal. A good clue is the LV monogram in each bag. Authentic Louis Vuitton bags bear the LV symbol with the three floral motifs. Counterfeiters have tried copying this monogram and there are some counterfeits that look real. Discerning LV connoisseurs like me have developed a keen eye for these and the fake ones are easy to spot.
Louis Vuitton and Celebrities
Seeing celebrities brandishing their Louis Vuitton bags should give you a clue to the brand’s popularity. It’s now a common sight to see stars such as Kim K, Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker and even Lady Gaga sport a Louis Vuitton handbag or luggage. Even male celebrities are getting in on the act too, with Michael Phelps seen clutching an LV.
Now you understand why there’s a lot of love out there traveling with Louis Vuitton luggage. This iconic brand not only builds your image but also proves to be durable and handy. Owning a Louis Vuitton radiates a classy and luxurious aura for the owner.
