About Vintage Louis Vuitton

New trends come and go, but classics always stay in style. Vintage Louis Vuitton pieces are timeless and always look sophisticated and stylish. Although "it bags" grace celebrity shoulders all over tabloids and fashion magazines, vintage Louis Vuitton totes and purses are always fast favorites with fashion designers, style editors, and other industry influencers. Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, and Jane Fonda were all proud owners of classic Louis Vuitton styles. The famous fashion house has been in operation since the 19th century, so there are lots of vintage pieces out there. The company originally produced leather luggage and trucks, but it quickly moved into the world of handbags, belts, and other accessories. Although many designs appeared over the decades, some vintage pieces have defining characteristics. The signature "LV" monogram first appeared in 1896, and a wide variety of vintage Louis Vuitton accessories boast this signature emblem. Pieces made during World War II are typically constructed from canvas, as leather was in short supply during the war years. Whether you want a classic monogram Speedy bag or a small, simple vintage Louis Vuitton clutch, you can find a vast inventory of designer handbags on eBay.
