Long discontinued Louis Vuitton reade bag in the HIGHLY coveted Framboise colour!

This ‘lil gem is so freakin’ cute – perfect for toting around and boy, does it attract attention 😉 I particularly loved how it’s not the standard LV monogram (which is a little OTT sometimes and way-too-often counterfeited) but rather the LV logo is subtly embossed onto the leather. The HOT PINK leather is coated with a glaze that makes it stain and water-resistant, so this bag is ultra durable. Did I mention the beautiful raspberry FRAMBOISE colour has a subtle shimmer/sheen to it? It’s what makes it special as not all LV vernis bags have this 🙂

The soft leather handles are perfect for hand carrying or nestled in the crook of your arm – this bag is super light. The lightly patina’d handles are attached by cute little golden brass buttons embossed with “Louis Vuitton” – perfect condition with no scratches or marks.

What’s fab about this bag is the roomy interior that opens up easily – NO digging into your bag trying to find your keys or wallet. It has a zippered interior pocket with a cute ‘lil LV zipper pull and the leather tag inside says “LOUIS VUITTON PARIS, made in France”

Measures 7″ high, 9″ across, 4″ deep.

Retails almost US$850 (I paid AUD$975) though this specific colour and style is long discontinued.

Condition: Leather exterior perfect/mint. Lightly and evenly patina’d handles. Interior is clean except for small penmark. Comes with original dustbag, tag, original receipt-in-envelope from when I purchased it in the Australian boutique.

Price: US$650 including registered airmail shipping (add $20 for EMS/courier with 3-day delivery – highly recommended). ***SOLD***

Long discontinued and extremely RARE Louis Vuitton onatah bag in the rich aubergine colour!

If you’re after a really soft and smooshy Louis Vuitton bag (which is rare as they often do ‘firmer’ styles)…… this is it!!! A buttery-soft, slouchy hobo that smells oh-so-divine. The calf leather is thick and luscious and has the LV monogram all over it in teeny tiny perforations – so it’s not completely obvious or tacky. It slouches beautifully when carried on the shoulder and is lovely and roomy inside. The leather is the Aubergine colour – a very rich, dark eggplant. It’s a deep colour and so matches many outfits, but really pops in the sunlight.

The adjustable sturdy shoulder strap is fastened by “Louis Vuitton” embossed buttons and burnished brass rings, and all stitching is tight and perfect on the cowhide leather. I love how the zipper pull is long, so it can be reached easily even when you’re carrying the bag on your shoulder. The interior of the bag is fully lined in silky jacquard lining with a subtle monogram, and with the leather tab “LOUIS VUITTON PARIS, made in France” on the open interior pocket.

Measures approx 13.8″ across x 9.8″ high x 5″ deep. Strap drop is about 10.5″ but is adjustable

Retails around US$2,000 though this specific colour and style is long discontinued.

Condition: Leather exterior perfect/mint on front and back . Bottom and side near-mint with tight stitching. Note hardware is burnished brass and so looks aged even when mint. Leather on side of zipper pull has slight wear, but can’t pick it up in photos as it was too subtle. Interior perfect and clean. Comes with original dustbag.

Price: US$1,100 including registered airmail shipping (add $30 for EMS/courier with 3-day delivery – highly recommended).
