Criss Jami once said: ‘In the fashion industry, everything goes retro except the prices’. A laptop can be outdated after three years, your car might lose its value after 5 years, but a classic bag that’s considered an iconic by the public will hold its value for a long time, that’s what makes it timeless.
A lot of high fashion brands like Chanel, Celine and Hermes have aggressively been increasing prices of their most-coveted bag. The steep prices only make them more attractive, if you own one, the value will increase by time, like the stock market.
Sometimes as simple as introducing new colors can dramatically change our perception about a bag. Louis Vuitton has introduced two limited edition colors for their famous monogram Empriente line, they are Grénat (Garnet) and Bronze. And for the first time, the leather features a subtle metallic sheen that gives a shimmer reminiscent to the appearance. The fabulous colors attract eyes and create a statement to your style.
What’s more? If you’ve always wanted to own a speedy bag, the new monogram empriente colors has been integrated to the iconic speedy bandoulière 25 bag, a re-worked version of the original speedy. It’s also included to the Fascinante and (Compact) Curieuse wallet. For your information, the prices for this speedy bandoulière 25 bag are $2,850 USD and €1.800 EUR at Louis Vuitton boutique.
