    hm.. because LV is handmade and not made in china, makes it more expensive
    I can't deny the marketing advertising, stores open at expensive area add up the cost to it.

    I think they're so special because they've been around for so long and because of the types of people that *generally* use them. We see people in the media using Louis V and I think through that it's kinda drummed into us that its a desirable item; If I'm honest I'd love a Louis V, but about 75% of their designs aren't to my taste. Plus the fact they do seem to wear much better than other brands, I mean, I've saw 100 year old trunks being sold on in decent condition - you can't beat quality and hard wearing products!

    i don't think they're handmade anymore (at least not the monogram)...

    but anyway, i think that LV is so "special" because they're basically timeless. they will generally look the same for decades and yet people will still be carrying them, since they don't necessarily belong to one decade or another or go with a fashion trend.

    For me, I think part of it is the quality but a good deal with it has to do with the name.

    The quality is there for sure. But the main attraction (at least when getting started, before the experience of carrying a LV) is that it is a huge status symbol. If quality was the only reason, LV wouldn't be the most successfully faked bag on Earth! Many people just like being seen carrying one. It's human nature, I guess.

    I totally agree, although I do know some of my friends don't appreciate anything like LV, they love high street. I think we all want to have the best things we can, and were told that LV is the best so we want them. Like men with cars/sports equipment lol.

    None of them are handmade... Hermes is... but LV is all machines

    The day I saw the diffrence between a real Lv and a fake I dreamed about a real vuitton,
    Every time a saw the shine on the leather of a real Lv (mono or damier ebene) I would cry beacause I needed one.

    I think you also feel very special that the most of the Lv's are fake and you can buy a real one and you know that only Lv-lovers can see that you have a real one but they will love you because you don't blame the brand LOUIS VUITTON with a fake,
    People with a real vuitton love beautifull things, and they will spend all their money on it because When you start with Lv, You can not stop buying it.

    I had stayed away from LV previously, because coming from Asia, they are so common and faked so much. I had flirted with other designer brands, even though I got my first LV years ago and never really appreciated it. As I got older (OK, I'm in my thirties) I've come to appreciate the timelessness of LV bags and the fact they just go with everything you wear and makes the outfit. I know that I can still carry my LV's when I'm in my 50s and 60s and beyond because they are just classics. I've gotten rid of bags that I've out-matured.

    ITA with the other girls I fell in love with LV because its timeless and classic, they have a permanent collection that doesn't need changing and never goes out of style....

    I used to not get why people spend so much on LVs and I hated the fact that my DH bought his ex an MC... Now I understand LV's are artwork of the fashionistas... It makes you feel really special to be able to own a real one.
