I have been buying LV handbags for about 15 years. I am not attracted lately to the newer designs. I am finding it harder and harder to find any handbag that I want to buy. Do you feel this way? I love the "old fashioned" classic designs better.
As you suggest, "dated" or "on trend" is really subjective!I always wanted a luxury handbag, a designer piece and LV was for me THE luxury brand. I searched the online site for about a year and never found a bag which called my name. It was all so brown/vachetta - for me= boring, even if called a classic.
It has to grow on me.... My first bag was the Speedy B 25 in DE, after a long search. My second was the Alma PM in black. Classics and I thought, I'm done with them-No more bags needed. After them my obsession really startet-because of pink (I know ....)! I find LV with the new designs and colors modern and started to collect. I own Speedys, a lot of Almas and Neverfulls, but also newer models. And in this time my taste changes a bit and now I really like Canvas and Vachetta [emoji6]
I like the way LV goes and LV has to go this way to stay in the market, stay classic and modern, too! Otherwise they won't sell so much today. It doesn't bother me if a design I love will look dated in a few years, when I love it nothing else matters. My Watercolor Speedy is kind of dated, but for me it is a piece of art, doesn't matter what others say.
I agree, a lot of times I see new/trendy bags from LV that I like, but when i end up purchasing I usually pick a more classic bag that I know I won't get tired of. When I was deciding on my first Lv bag in January, I liked the world tour nano speedy but I chose the pochette accessoires in monogram instead because it's a classic, timeless pieceMany of the new designs are really beautiful and I love looking at them and admiring them on others. But I prefer the classics when it comes time to purchasing. Maybe if I had unlimited bag funds, I'd buy some of the trendier pieces, but I know the classics are a good investment and I most likely won't tire of them.
A lot of first time buyers follow that path - and it's probably smart! The purchasing strategy is very different if one owns 25 LV bags or owns none!I agree, a lot of times I see new/trendy bags from LV that I like, but when i usually end up purchasing a more classic bag that I know I won't get tired of.
