    Default Why are some bags more than others?

    Like the denim Speedy is $1390 and the Damier Canvas Speedy is $595





    I think that's weird. Is it because they're two different materials?

    ^I think it has to do with the workmanship involved in making the handbag. Sewing the LVs and the fleurs on the jeans material requires a lot of work, especially if you need it to be centered and perfect. Some bags aren't exactly centered (on the denim ones, that is).

    I wish I had a mini-pleaty, but I know I'll never afford it. And I can't justify spending that much money on the bags (albeit I do spend on LV...).

    I think it has to do with supply and demand. The Monogram collection and the Damier Canvas are like there basic collections. Louis Vuitton is really popular these days. They know when a new product comes out people are going to snatch them up right away. And when some collections are more money then others... it makes the collection that's more exclusive. Like for instance The Monogram collection Pochette Accessories is $280 BUT the Multicolor Pochette Accessories is $570. I think they just know when people are first introduced to LV there first bag is going to be either a Monogram or a Damier bag. After that... you go buck wild.. and grab your hands on all the other collections that come out and soon as they hit the shelves whatever the cost is. They know they can charge a huge amount for their bags.. and people will still keep running to the stores and snatching up their bags.

    I agree it has to do with the fact that some bags are limited editions. Just like the multicolore pochette is more than the brown canvas one even though they are basically the same material and whatnot

    Plus you have to think... in the Mulicolore collection some bags have extra hardware on the bags... increasing the value. The Pochette has the studs all over the bag.. my Audra has the brass chains... the Speedy has the S-Lock.. the Aurelia has the hook and bucket closure...Mini HL has the lock..etc. Plus there is more effort put into making the Multicolor Canvas. I would say most people don't carry Multicolore bags, but yet it's more money because of the extra hardware on the bags and the time is takes to make the canvas.
