This Is the Most Expensive Louis Vuitton Bag Ever

How much are you willing to pay for a designer handbag? If you are used to adding Louis Vuitton bags to your most secret wishlist, you are probably aware of their prices too. Well, the French fashion house has just surpassed its previous records, unveiling the most expensive Louis Vuitton bag ever designed. It’s so expensive that it costs even more than Gucci’s recent $22,000-worth and Fendi’s $34,000-worth bags. And it costs even more than a brand new Mercedes-Benz. Its price tag? A whopping $55,000! It actually costs $1,000 more than the previous most expensive Louis Vuitton handbag, the Louis Vuitton Crocodile Lady Bag PM.

Louis Vuitton City Steamer

After hitting headlines in August last year for being the most expensive purse Louis Vuitton had ever debuted, the Crocodile Lady bag PM has now lost its crown, being replaced by a more day-to-day piece – the Louis Vuitton City Steamer bag, the opulence of which is now taking the fashion house, as well as the entire fashion industry to a whole new level. This slightly sleek handbag is also here to pay homage to the French fashion house’s heritage, celebrating its creativity and always-fun ways to redesign its biggest classics.

Currently available for purchase (you’ll have to call Louis Vuitton to pre-order and purchase one), this nude-colored crocodile skin bag features an engraved padlock, a nametag with LV signature, a cowhide lining, a removable leather strap, which has enough room for all your papers, files and personal belongings. It is, of course, made of genuine alligator skin and can be also carried over the shoulder.

Given the fact that it is only available upon reservation, the brand this way highlights the exclusiveness of the luxury Louis Vuitton City Streamer bag. In other words, it means that it won’t be featured that much neither on any fashion blogger’s social media account, nor in a lot of advertisement campaigns, meaning that it will literally be in the hands of a very few people. Although the standards for expensive designer bags have always been set by the Hermes Birkin selections, Louis Vuitton seems now to be taking the lead of the luxury market, bringing it back to its traditional origins: creating a piece that is exclusive and limited-edition.

If you really liked this luxury piece, or are in love with any LV bag and would like to purchase one at a more affordable price, make sure to visit Louis Vuitton’s website, as it has now been filled with an appealing selection of the brand’s Cruise 2016 handbags!
