    Default LV price increase for U.S.

    Anyone pissed off about it as much as I am? After getting one more bag (a batignolles or popincourt), I'm not going to buy LV for a lloooonnnggg time, if at all. If LV wants to increase their exlusivity, then so be it. I'm through with LV.

    They will have two price adjustments every year. So if any of you are planning to get something there, it's better to get it now than later.

    Make that 3...there's going to be one sometime in November.

    And I know I should probably get something now than later...but I don't have the money for it right now. And I'm thinking about quitting LV.

    quit lv? its kindof addicting. lol.

    Personally, I dont really care too much if their prices increase. There are many more designers out there, so I dont think my life will come to an end if their prices dramatically. My concern is that if they increase prices then they will become more exclusive - yea that is a good thing however, by doing so that means only more people will turn to alternatives, such as replica or counterfeit handbags. or others by try to go the ebay route and accidently get stuck with a bad bag. That's inevitable though.

    I know, I know, it's really hard to steer away! I still want another LV bag (like a BV, PH, or Cabas) a damier pochette, and a cles! But after that...I don't know. A speedy used to be somewhere between $250-$300....now it's up to $620. Sure, that's not too bad, but what if a speedy gets to $1,000 in the next couple of years? IMHO, I think I'd rather get a Chanel or a Chloe bag at that price, def. NOT a speedy. And I really think that these price increases are to turn their audience towards the wealthy and kick off the middle-class, who may be ruining the "luxury" name of LV. I know I'm being pessimistic, but that's the impression I'm getting.

    Also, you'd think that the price would be constant since they have factories in the United States. We can't always blame it on the euro, and I think it's just a way to increase their profit margins.

    Don't get me wrong, I still love LV. But buying directly from the boutique? Nah, maybe not anymore.

    I agree that LV is addictive, but I also agree with i_heart_LV's standpoint. When I got my Speedy 25 3 years ago it was only $465, and now it's $595! The Looping MM I got in 2001was only $520 and now it's $845. If you are willing to pay $1,000 or above for a bag, I think you can have many other choices.

    But I have to say, I still like LV.

    Oooh, I am sad about that. I have been saving up for a damier papillon and hope they don't increase the cost.

    Blush Re: LV price increase for U.S.

    Yes... price increases stink.. but I don't mind them! Just like in the LV motto: It's not just a name it's a symbol of STATUS. And that's so true. The more the prices go up the more exclusive it is. I have an Louis Vuitton Multicolor Audra in White... and I chose to get that partcular bag in the Multicolor because no one had it. I've had it since January and to this date I've only seen 2 people in FL with it. I like being different and I don't like being like anyone else. I think the more the prices go up the more rare it is you'll see a Louis Vuitton in someones hands. I don't know just my opinion! But I feel ya!! Price increases STINK!!! <3, Marissa

    I just saw it, too (yesterday). Actually, it's not as bad as I thought it would be. Oh well, maybe it was an anticlimax? Hahaha. But now, I think my only resort is ebay...

    Oh yeah I got my cles! I really like it!
