Louis Vuitton, Beauty with Age

Most things in life just get better with age, and Louis Vuitton is no exception.

With its most notable signature leather Monogram canvas collection, LV just screams luxury.  It doesn't go out of style and only increases in value over time.  But how do you know your LV's age and value?  Well, look at your strap.

I added this LV to my collection about 2 years ago. The strap is a very light tan color, yet to be weathered.

The Speedy bag (or as I like to call it, the Doctor bag) has been in my possession for about 5 years.  Notice the strap is starting to get darker.

Whereas this LV was acquired over 15 years ago.  Look at the rich caramel color of the strap - gorgeous!

The LV brand began in the 1850s with high demand for the traveling trunk, and has since been famous for its long-lasting leather luggage.  Quality is quality, and with handmade items, still to this day, LV is quality made to last.
