Whether you purchase a Louis Vuitton new, or preloved, here are some of our favorite designer handbags that we have noticed hold their value extremely well.
Do You Own Any of These Louis Vuitton Handbags?
In 2007, Louis Vuitton introduced the amazing and versatile Neverfull handbag to the public. When the Neverfull first came out, the cost was roughly $740 USD. Now, that same 2019 Neverfull MM is priced at $1320 USD . This iconic bag comes in three sizes; PM, MM, and GM. It also comes in three available patterns of Damier Azur, Damier Ebene, and Monogram. No need to struggle trying to get items out of your handbag because the Neverfull comes with two straps and a wide-open interior. You can also fastened the sides to make the overall handbag smaller. If you are looking for the ultimate in modern classic luxury, then the Louis Vuitton Neverfull is the bag for you. The spacious bag can hold everything you need and looks good enough to take anywhere. This is one of the best selling Louis Vuitton handbags and holds resale value well
Totally is one of Louis Vuitton’s newer handbags. This bag comes in three sizes, PM, MM, and GM. The different pattern options for this stunning bag are Damier Azur, Damier Ebene, and Monogram. This handbag is very sturdy and stylish. The Louis Vuitton Totally has a lightweight design and a spacious interior, along with two large side pockets. This handbag is your perfect carry-on for that weekend getaway. We have noticed that these handbags are in high demand and if taken care of properly, can warrant a high resale value.
The Louis Vuitton Speedy was originally created in the early 1930’s and was the very first handbag created by Louis Vuitton. For the first few decades, Louis Vuitton focused primarily on selling luxury trunks and travel accessories. When the Speedy was first introduced, it was 30mm in size and today. There are currently 4 different sizes of the Speedy.
Audrey Hepburn is one of the most fashion forward women in history and is actually the reason why Louis Vuitton created the smallest 25mm Louis Vuitton Speedy. In the early 1960’s, Audrey requested Louis Vuitton to update the popular Keepall travel bag to a smaller, less bulky bag. She wanted something that she could carry every day and Louis Vuitton delivered.
The Speedy comes in four sizes, Speedy 25 (9.84”L x 7.5”W x 6”H), Speedy 30 (11.8”L x 8.3”W x 6.7”H), Speedy 35 (13.8”L x 9”W x 7”H) and Speedy 40 (15.8”L x 9.8”W x 7.5”H). As you can see, the Louis Vuitton Speedy handbag has many different sizes. Materials for this iconic bag are Monogram Canvas, Damier Ebene, and Damier Azur. The Speedy handbag is just as popular today as it was 90 years ago when it was first introduced. The Speedy has retained value very well throughout the years. We believe it can be a great investment if maintained properly. Here are the different price points of the Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 over the last 40 years.
Prices of Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 Over The Past 40 Years
- Speedy 25 in 1979 was $150 USD
- Speedy 25 in 1998 was $325 USD
- Speedy 25 in 2002 was $430 USD
- Speedy 25 in 2019 is currently $1000 USD
Although the Speedy has stayed basically the same throughout the years, the price for the new bag tends to increase every few years. If you purchased a Speedy 25 a decade or two ago and kept it in pristine condition, you could potentially sell it for more than you originally purchased it for.
The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere is a new variation of the popular handbag that they added to their collection in 2011. It was designed for people who are always on the go, which is why it includes a detachable strap. This leather shoulder strap can make the bag very versatile and adjusts to allow you to carry three ways. You can carry it by hand, on the shoulder, or also crossbody. This bag also comes with a top zipper for added security. The lightweight design makes it a perfect travel bag.
Like the original Louis Vuitton Speedy, the Bandouliere comes in the same four sizes and is made with the same materials. HER Authentic have noticed that the resale value of the Speedy Bandouliere maintains the value well. Women tell us that they really like the added strap and say it is more functional than the original Speedy. When we post a Speedy Bandouliere on our website, it usually sells within the day.
The very versatile Louis Vuitton Favorite handbag came out in August of 2012. LV Favorite handbags are carried as a clutch, shoulder bag, or crossbody thanks to its removable leather strap and golden chain. The interior of this handbag is both roomy and beautiful. Louis Vuitton Favorite will never go out of style because it is stylish and extremely functional. You can use it for both casual occasions and formal events. This handbag comes in two sizes, PM and MM. Favorites consist of three materials; Damier Azur, Damier Ebene, and Monogram.

Before selling Louis Vuitton, there are some things to keep in mind. To get the most cash for Louis Vuitton and other designer handbags, make sure to keep the leather and canvas in good condition. The primary thing we look for is if the item has cracking or glazing issues. This will immediately lower the value of a designer handbag. If the interior of the bag is not too stained or worn, it can also lower resale value. Age does play a factor on the price of your handbag but not nearly as much as the condition. We have seen some bags that are 30 years old and look like they are in pristine condition. On the other hand, we have seen some new bags that look like they went through a Tough Mudder race.
Keeping receipts, dustbags, lock and keys will also warrant more cash for Louis Vuitton and other designer handbags. Before selling a LV handbag, make sure to send clear pictures that show all sides of the handbags, and include images of the interior. For more details and information, check out the Sell To Us page.
