Louis Vuitton Hangbags

Louis Vuitton

Topping the best handbag brands list would be the new Louis Vuitton Hobo Handbag.

Louis Vuitton is a French fashion house that was established in the year 1858. it is most famous for its “LV” monogram that is on almost all of its products.

The monogram you can spot was introduced to avoid counterfeiting of its products, but it is ironical that only one percent of the LV “branded” bags, in the market today, are actual Louis Vuitton bags.

This could probably attributed to the high demand of these bags and the relatively low supply or the inability of most people to buy a coveted (and very expensive) LV.

The most famous and must haves of the Louis Vuitton bags are the Speedy, which was introduced 80 years ago, but is still going strong.

The others include the Louis Vuitton Antheia Hobo, Louis Vuitton Cruise Bulles Bag and Louis Vuitton Daimer Rivington.

Many new accessories such as jeweled buttons, trims of different fabrics and zippers were placed on the bags and purses to lend a more feminine touch to the bags.
