Founded in 1854, Louis Vuitton made its name in luggage. The brand started life with its iconic monogrammed trunk, designed for the holidaying French elite. Over the years the brand has branched out into belts, jewellery, clothing and watches, but luggage – and specifically handbags – is undoubtedly its big-seller.  In the past century, LV handbags have graced the perfectly proportioned arms of countless celebrities, from Audrey Hepburn to Kate Moss. If you’re looking to join the club but your budget is a little more restricted, we’ve cherry-picked five of the most affordable Louis Vuitton handbags. 

Felicie Pochette 

This might be the cheapest Louis Vuitton handbag available, but it’s lacking none of the classic LV charms. It’s smaller than a standard ruler in length (21 cm long), but just about large enough to fit the essentials – a phone, wallet and emergency makeup. The new model boasts an envelope-style pouch made from cowhide leather, with two removable pockets. It features an elegantly engraved monogram in the corner, so you can show off its status without shouting about it, and the silver-tone chain is removable too. From $1,250.

The Speedy 25

The Speedy 25 is one of Louis Vuitton’s most popular models – and one of the oldest too. It launched in 1930 as “The Express” in response to the rise of public transportation and has managed to retain its iconic status. Made from a supple Monogram canvas, it’s soft to touch but retains its rigid silhouette. The rolled leather handles have a comfortable grip and the engraved signature padlock is a nice security touch. You can personalize the bag with a colourful stripe or monogram for an additional fee too. From $1,140.

The Petite Noé 

This bucket bag dates back to 1932 when a champagne producer asked Gaston–Louis Vuitton to craft a sturdy and stylish bag large enough to carry five bottles of bubbles. This compact version is smaller than the original, but it boasts Mary Poppins-levels of space – you’ll be surprised by how much you can fit in there. The Noé Nano is the cheapest bag in this range, but we’ve selected the Petite due to its versatility. The bag is made from monogram coated canvas with cowhide leather trim and gold fittings. From $1,400

As the name suggests, the Neverfull PM offers plenty of storage space – you can happily fit your laptop, a water bottle and other essentials inside without a struggle. It might be capacious, but it isn’t bulky either, thanks to its side laces and sleek silhouette. The bag features a removable pouch too, making it easier to grab your wallet or phone when you need it. It’s crafted from Louis Vuitton’s standard monogram canvas with cowhide trip, along with a colourful textile interior. You can customize this with a stripe or monogram too. From $1,460.

The Alma BB

For a heritage feel, the Alma BB is an excellent choice. The Alma range launched in 1934 as ‘The Art Deco Original’, thanks to its rounded shape and contrasting colours. Signature details include the golden padlock and keys, twin Toron handles and the leather key bell. The strap can be removed or lengthened to wear across the body. The BB is one of the cheapest handbags in the Alma range, measuring a snug 25 cm.  From $1,480.
