The Best Louis Vuitton Bags To Invest in 2022 - Luxe Front (2022)

What are the best Louis Vuitton Bags to invest in?

When it comes to designer handbags, there’s no denying that Louis Vuitton handbags are among the most prestigious and coveted accessories, alongside a few others like Chanel and Hermes. What began as a luggage company in 1854 has become one of the most instantly recognizable and often counterfeited luxury brands.

Louis Vuitton’s bags are one of the first luxury bags people think of and they are a part of many women’s first luxury handbags. The main reason is the undeniable quality and craftsmanship of the bags: for example their coated canvas material is known to be extremely durable, scratch and tear resistant therefore lasting for many years. Another reason is that LV comes with lots of different designsevery season, therefore it has something for everyone, including entry-level pieces that are great for a luxury novice. Furthermore, since the fashion house has been around for so long, there is also a prolific second hand market where you can grab a bargain for many classic: like the Speedy, Noé and Neverfull.

You should also be a aware that Louis Vuitton typically raises their prices every year with between 5% to 21% – their last price increase was in October 2021 and there’s rumors of another one coming soon. You might want to buy a bag sooner rather than later.

So, if you thinking of “investing” into your first Louis Vuitton bag or further consolidate your collection you’ve come to the right place. Follow along to see which are the top Louis Vuitton bags one should invest in.

1.Louis Vuitton Keepall

Yes, not an actual handbag but we’ve figured that we’ll pay homage to the brands’ heritage and choose an actual luggage piece as the first recommendation for the best Louis Vuitton bags. The Keepall was first introduced in 1930 and it is still a part of the fashion house. If you love to travel you’re going to use this bag a lot.

There are 4 sizes for the Keepall which refer to their width in centimeters. From smallest to largest we have: Keepall 45, 50, 55 and 60. We recommend the 50 or 55 if you fly a lot and need a carry-on bag. The Keepall 45 could also be used as a gym bag as the size is a bit smaller than the other Keepalls.

See the size comparison and price for the Keepall in the table below:

StyleSizePrice
Keepall Bandoulière 4517.7 x 10.6 x 7.9 inches
$2,230.00
Keepall Bandoulière 5019.7 x 11.4 x 8.7 inches
$2,300.00
Keepall 5521.7 x 12.2 x 9.4 inches
$1,960.00
Keepall Bandoulière 5521.7 x 12.2 x 9.4 inches
$2,360.00

Keepall Bandoulière 60
23.6 x 13 x 10.2 inches
$2,430.00

As you can see, the cheapest version is the Speedy 50 without a strap – however, we strongly recommend to save a bit more and get the bandouliere version as it’s going to get very uncomfortable very fast if you try to carry it only by the top handles.

Since the Keepall is one of the most iconic and oldest items in the Louis Vuitton world, it’s also quite easy to find these on the pre-loved market at a great price.

2. Louis Vuitton Speedy

The first Louis Vuitton piece that was designed to be a handbag – the Speedy is a quintessential LV bag that will always be relevant. The first size available was the Speedy 30, but today there are a few sizes available including a nano and a speedy 20. Again, like the Keepall there are two versions of most Speedys, one with a strap, called bandoulière and another option without the strap. We think that most women will benefit having the option of a strap, especially if you need to be handsfree while shopping or running errands. However, this is one of the bags that look great hand-held, so you can definitely use the cheaper version without the strap.

There are a few sizes available for the LV Speedy: Nano, Speedy 20, 25, 30 and 35. See the table below for a comparison of prices and sizes of the different Speedy bags:

BagSizePrice 2022
NANO SPEEDY6.3 x 4.3 x 3.5 inches$1,320.00
SPEEDY BANDOULIÈRE 207.9 x 5.1 x 4.7 inches
$1,890
SPEEDY 259.8 x 7.5 x 5.9 inches
$1,350
SPEEDY BANDOULIÈRE 259.8 x 7.5 x 5.9 inches
$1,690
SPEEDY 3011.8 x 8.3 x 6.7 inches
$1,370
SPEEDY BANDOULIÈRE 3011.8 x 8.3 x 6.7 inches
$1,740
SPEEDY 3513.8 x 9.1 x 7.1 inches
$1,390
SPEEDY BANDOULIÈRE 3513.8 x 9.1 x 7.1 inches
$1,800

Depending on your lifestyle and how much you carry on a daily basis, there is a Speedy size that is great for you. The most popular size seems to be the Speedy 25 which is a great, roomy bag without being too overwhelmingly big. It has become quite hard to buy a new Speedy, especially in the coated canvas as Louis Vuitton seems to have a limited supply of canvas bags. The smaller sizes such as the nano and 20 are even harder to find so you really need to hunt for them.

Being the first Louis Vuitton handbag, there’s no surprise that you can find many “Speedies” on the pre-loved market. See a few below.

3. Louis Vuitton Noé

The Noé is our third pick for the best Louis Vuitton handbags. It’s also one of the first bags that LV has ever released and it was apparently originally designed to carry champagne. The Noé is a great carry-all bag, that is super relaxed and easy to wear. It comes in a few different sizes including the original size (in case you want to use it to carry 5 bottles of champagne!).

The sizes that the bucket bag is available in are: the standard/large; Petit Noé , Noé BB and the Nano Noe. See below the table with the size and price comparison between these bags.

Style SizePrice
Noé10.2 x 13.4 x 7.5 inches
$1,880.00
Petit Noé
9.8 x 10.6 x 7.9 inches
$1,580.00
NoéBB8.7 x 9.4 x 5.9 inches
$1,480.00
Nano Noé5.1 x 5.9 x 3.5 inches
$1,320.00

Currently, the Noe comes in canvas with different prints, including monogram, Damier Ebene and Damier Azur. Again, since this style of bags has been around since the 1930’s there’s a lot of them on the second hand market – and you can often find them for an affordable price as well or with prints or leather that is not available now.

4. Louis Vuitton Neverfull

There could not be a list for best Louis Vuitton bags without mentioning the Neverfull. Yes, it is kind of basic and yes, you won’t be the only one owning this bag, but it’s so popular for a reason. It is the ultimate tote that will most likely last you forever. It’s also a great first designer piece because it’s relatively affordable and can take you from college bag to work bag to diaper bag with no issues whatsoever.

There are 4 sizes available for the Neverfull: the PM, MM and GM. You can read full reviews for these bags here. See the table below for the size and price comparison for all the Neverfull bags.

StyleSizePrice
Neverfull PM 11.4 x 8.7 x 5.1 inches
$1,620.00
Neverfull MM 12.6 x 11.4 x 6.7 inches
$1,690.00
Neverfull GM 15.4 x 12.6 x 7.5 inches
$1,760.00

As you can see the Neverfull is quite affordable for its size. There’s also not a great difference in price between the smallest one, the PM and the MM & GM (which we recommend if you want to fit a lot). The Neverfull also comes in Empreinte leather, but for this article we’re mainly focusing on canvas bags since they are more iconic for LV and also more affordable.

5. Louis Vuitton Alma

Another bag that we love from Louis V, is the Alma. If your style is a little more dressy, then this might just be the bag for you. It’s definitely one of the best LV bags because it’s classic, it comes in a few different sizes, has a shoulder strap and a huge history behind. It was introduced in 1992 and it was created as a custom bag for none other than Coco Chanel. Since then there were many variations of the Alma bag, including epi leather, vernis embossed leather and of course the classic canvas. The smaller Almas come with a shoulder strap which makes the bag super practical.

Take a look at the table below for the size and price comparison for all the canvas Alma bags.

StyleSizePrice
Alma MM 14.2 x 11 x 6.7 inches
$2,160.00
Alma PM12.6 x 9.8 x 6.3 inches
$1,820.00
Alma BB9.3 x 6.9 x 4.5 inches
$1,620.00

The Alma BB seems to be the most popular option, possibly because the MM and PM do not include a shoulder strap – thus they are a bit harder to wear.

6. Louis Vuitton Pochette Félicie

If you’re a minimalist, look no further. This bag (technically a small leather good according to Louis Vuitton) is a great addition to your wardrobe or a great first bag. It comes the coated canvas in all available prints: monogram, damier ebene and damier azure as well as in empreinte leather, epi leather and patent vernis leather.

We think this is a great bag from Louis Vuitton because of its versatility. If you don’t carry a lot with you, then you can wear this small bag during the day, running errands, going shopping or to lunch. It’s also an amazing night/ special occasion bag due to its size and beautiful dressy chain. You can also remove the chain and wear it as a clutch or chuck it in a large bag and use it as a wallet. It’s similar to a Chanel Wallet on a Chain for example, but with a way more attractive price tag.

It’s obviously not a great bag if you tend to carry a lot with you, but if you only need your phone, keys and cards we think you should really look into the Félicie.

See the table below for the price comparison between all versions of the Pochette Félicie.

MaterialPrice
Pochette Félicie in Monogram$1,240.00
Pochette Félicie Monogram Empreinte$1,420.00
Pochette Félicie Epi Leather$1,310.00
Pochette Félicie Monogram Vernis $1,310.00

7.Louis Vuitton Capucines

One of our personal favorites – the Capucines. Made of the most beautiful supple leather, there are so many variations and colors for the Capucines that you are bound to find something that you love. It is a new classic from the brand, with its name derived from the first Louis Vuitton store which was located on Rue Neuve de Capucines.

Although we see the Capucines as one of the best Louis Vuitton bags, it’s also one of the most expensive – so it might not be suitable for everyone. Louis Vuitton seems to be pushing the Capucines quite hard through their marketing & it seems that they have gifted it to a lot of celebrities.

See the table below for the prices of the different Capucines sizes.

StyleSizePrice
Capucines Mini8.3 x 5.5 x 3.1 inches
$5,150.00
Capucines BB10.6 x 8.3 x 3.9 inches$5,650.00
Capucines MM12.4 x 7.9 x 4.3 inches$6,350.00

All Capucines come with detachable shoulder straps which makes them easy to carry. The bigger sizes are great as work handbags, whereas the mini is a super versatile bag that can go from day to night.

To be honest, we’re surprised that it hasn’t taken of more. It also doesn’t seem to be holding its value as much as other Louis Vuitton bags, so we recommend you also check the pre-loved market if you’re looking for a Capucines. We’ve left some options below.

8. Louis Vuitton Coussin Bag

If you’re a fashionista that loves to follow trends, then the Louis Vuitton Coussin might be the best bag for you. It is a super trendy LV bag featuring the embossed LV logos, a chunky chain as well as a thick fabric strap. It’s also very “pillow-y” which is definitely a trend that we see in bags – for example the Chanel 19 and YSL Puffer bags.

Since it is full leather, the Coussin is definitely more expensive than other LV bags, especially the ones in canvas.

See the table for a price comparison between the different Coussin bags.

Style SizePrice
Coussin MM13.4 x 9.4 x 4.7 inches
$4,300.00
Coussin PM
10.2 x 7.9 x 4.7 inches
$3,900.00
Coussin BB8.3 x 6.3 x 2.8 inches$3,500.00
Pochette Coussin 7.9 x 5.5 x 3.1 inches
$2,570.00
Beltbag Coussin5.1 x 4.3 x 2.4 inches
$2,180.00

9. Louis Vuitton Onthego

If you’re looking for a tote but you want something a little more exclusive than the Neverfull, we think you should take a look at the Onthego tote. It was launched in 2019 and became an instant hit due to its interesting design and practicality.

There are three sizes available for the Onthego tote: a GM, MM and PM – similar to the Neverfull. Depending on the desired use, you can choose any of the 3 sizes – the smallest one is suitable for day to day, whereas you can use the MM as an work bag because it fits a laptop and the GM as a weekend or travel bag because it fits everything! It comes in both canvas and empreinte leather – both with the oversized LV monogram.

See the table below for a size and price comparison between the Onthego totes. The GM and MM come in both canvas and empreinte leather, whereas at the moment, the PM only comes in the leather option.

StyleSizePrice
Onthego PM (leather)9.8 x 7.5 x 4.5 inches$3,100.00
Onthego MM (canvas)13.8 x 10.6 x 5.5 inches$2,840.00
Onthego GM (canvas)16.1 x 13.4 x 7.5 inches$2,970.00

10. Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack

For all of you backpack lovers, we left the LV Palm Springs backpack as the last (but not least) best Louis Vuitton bags recommendation. Being a backpack, it’s super easy to carry, it’s functional and aesthetically pleasing as well.

The mini Palm Springs is particularly popular, as it’s quite versatile and can also be transformed into a cross body bag. However, if you need to carry more, don’t worry as there are two other sizes for the backpack: a PM and MM.

See the table below for the price and size comparison of the Palm Springs backpacks.

StyleSizePrice
Onthego PM (leather)9.8 x 7.5 x 4.5 inches$3,100.00
Onthego MM (canvas)13.8 x 10.6 x 5.5 inches$2,840.00
Onthego GM (canvas)16.1 x 13.4 x 7.5 inches$2,970.00
