The classic LV designs will always be around IMO. LV can't possibly be a "leader" and keep on churning out "it" bags forever, but it'll never become passe either.

I thought you meant designed for the House of Chanel. This makes it sound like LV made the bag for Coco (the person) herself.

Cool info.

The beauty of these bags is their quality and durability. I believe that when you spend a lot of money in a handbag, it is a mistake to buy it too trendy. It also has to fit your lifestyle and your wardrobe and be very confortable and practical too. So you can use it everyday. At the beginning you may want to reserve your LV for special occasions, but believe me once your bag loses its "respectability", you will end up putting nappies or milk bottles inside.

did you guys know that LV takes special orders? I did not. but when I went in the store today looking for a 30 Speedy in myrtille epi, I was dismayed to learn that for some silly reason they don't make it in the 30, only the 25. but the lovely SA informed me that LV often makes made to order bags and while they do cost more depending on the special-ness of the request and require time, in my case it probably won't be much more or that long. and it will be made especially for me! how cool! I've been relatively uninterested in LV for a while now but my enthusiasm is reignited.

Oh yea, that happened to me before too. I was looking for the Epi snoufflot in vanilla but it was sold out by then. The SA volunteered to get it made specially for me, but I could not carry the deal through as I was flying off at that time.

That said, I think LV will always be around.

Fakes not withstanding, they do have a lot of classic bags and designs that will last forever.
My personal favourites are the Epi and Suhali.

I agree. LV has been around since the 1800s (I think?) and they have a proven track record. Will Chloe, Balenciaga, Mulberry bags pass the test of time and continue to be popular in the next 50 years? I'm not sure....

Actually, I was thinking the same thing last night. I haven't even been in the LV store in NYC in months because I was so bored and I can't stand being told that there's a wait list for a bag even before I know the name of it.

Anyway... last night I was watching the movie Private Benjamin (Goldie Hawn, 1980) and there she is carrying a LV Speedy! I was thinking, wow they're going to be around forever!

I am thinking of special ordering a Speedy in Damier. What do you all think? I'm sick of the myriad of monogram Speedies.
