The Louis Vuitton Neverfull is iconic, there’s no denying that. It’s available in PM (small), MM (medium) & GM (large) and let me tell you, there is quite the difference between the sizes.
But, if you’re reading this, I’m sure you’re already aware of the sizes and designs available and I’m guessing that you’re being a very savvy shopper and doing your research before you buy. So, to help you in your quest for designer bag nirvana I’ve attached my Louis Vuitton top tips below. I’m hoping to help out any Louis Vuitton virgins out there when may be asking themselves if a Louis Vuitton Neverfull is the best first designer bag for them.
1. Be prepared for price increases.
Louis Vuitton are notorious for this and yet still nobody knows if and when one will occur. Their increases tend to be on specific popular pieces and not across the board. However the Neverfull has been the victim of price increases every year, and it’s no use asking them when they’ll happen as obviously that’s classified information. Ha!
2. I recommend that you buy in store.
Trust me, I do literally all of my shopping online except for the odd pint of milk and even I recommend that you buy your Neverfull at a bricks and mortar Louis Vuitton store. There’s something special about the experience of buying from the luxury that is Louis Vuitton. In short, they make you feel very special, wrap up your goodies like a Christmas present and you know without a shadow of a doubt that it is authentic.
3. Try before you buy.
Again, coming back to the Louis Vuitton store itself. I think that it is vital that you try the PM, the MM and GM against your body type. I’ve had friends that were adamant that the GM was for them only to order the behemoth and discover that it was unnecessarily large for their needs.
4. You will also, absolutely need a bag organiser.
The Louis Vuitton Neverfull is just a canvas tote bag after all, not unlike a classy beach bag to be honest. So unless you want to spend 10 minutes rummaging around your tote for your keys you will need a bag organiser. We love this one: Periea Handbag Organiser because the large one is the perfect size for the MM.
5. People will assume that it’s a fake Louis.
Heartbreaking as it may be, after dropping £800 on a designer handbag. Louis Vuitton goods are the most counterfeited of all of the luxury brands. Especially the Neverfull. Be prepared to see high school students carrying a lookalike of your beauty.
All that being said, the Neverfull is beautiful and has become something of a status symbol for new money. An almost, ‘I’ve made it!’ badge. I do think it’s worth noting that of all of the *so wealthy I’ve never had to consider working* ladies I know do not carry this bag. In fact come to think of it the only Louis Vuitton products my silver spoon posse possess are their beautiful luggage collection. The old adage ‘money speaks, wealth whispers’ is worth remembering here, I feel.
