How To Clean And Care Your Louis Vuitton Alma Bag in Monogram Canvas

CATEGORIES:Louis Vuitton


Yesterday we stole a couple of hours of Victoria’s time and ask her everything about cleaning and caring designer handbags. Because we noticed that she has already been infected by ‘bag obsession’ (no cure for that, I guarantee), we needed her to share some real-life experience. We took her favorite Louis Vuitton Alma Bag as an example; ‘Victoria, please tell us your story!’

I purchased this Louis Vuitton Alma bag because I am OBSESSED with handbags and Louis Vuitton, the Alma is such a classic bag for any person of any age and in my opinion one of the top classics in the LV collection.

My shopping experience with Louis Vuitton is always amazing, I always shop at my home store which is in the United States in Florida at the International Mall in Tampa. They are always so welcoming and helpful.

I purchased the Alma I believe in Tampa, Florida that is where most my Louis’ are purchased!

I think I purchased this bag about 5 -6 years ago or probably more than that! The retail price then I believe it was a little over 1000 I believe? now I believe it currently retails for 1500.

Why did you choose this leather and what is your experience so far?
Louis Vuitton Monogram is the first and top styles to come in most bags, the far most popular to really say “ I am carrying a Louis Vuitton” when I first purchased the Alma they did not carry it in the Damier Ebene, vernis. ☹

Have you accidentally damaged your bag so far? If so, then what was your initial response and how did you resolve it?
OH my! This is a big one, I am soo protective over all my handbags, they are expensive bags and to not take care of them is so upsetting. In Florida in rains constantly, I constantly and putting them under my shirts if I don’t have an umbrella or find a plastic bag to shove them in! I had once got the bottom wet, my little brother put my bag on the floor of a restaurant ( YES HE DID) I don’t ever do that, and of course… it was slightly wet.

In which occasion do you often use this bag? (as an everyday?)
I only use this bag maybe every other month for a week. I frequently change out my handbags, and working in an office environment I sometimes don’t like bringing my high end bags.

What do you do to maintain your bag?
I always keep my handbags in the original dust bag this is a must! It keeps it from getting moisture in or any dust bunnies or anything that likes to hide! I also keep stuffing inside the bags so it doesn’t loose its shape!

Do you use any products? If so, then what are the products and prices? Also how often do you maintain your bag and how do you put these products in use?
I do use products, I love the Kate Spade Conditioner and leather cleaner they are both available for only $10 a piece on Kate Spades web site! I usually clean my bags every 2 months or so, but definitely before and after I use the handbag!

Have you tried any products that didn’t work out in the past?
I haven’t had any bad luck with products, all I can suggest is make sure you use LEATHER cleaner, some people just use soap and water never do that!

Where and how do you store your bag?
I store my bag in my handbag containers which is actually in it’s physical dust bag. I never keep it out of the dustbag unless I am using it… I actually think when I am using it at night I put it back in the dust bag. ☺

Do you have any more tips and advices for newbies?
Love your handbags! They are expensive pieces but they can last forever, take care of them and if you ever have questions ask! Bring them into someone to clean if you don’t trust yourself. Most Louis Vuitton stores have people they recommend to send the handbags too!

Something different for the ladies out there? Well, we have it here! Presenting, the Saint Laurent Monogram Fringed Shoulder Bag, another style-defying piece that’s definitely worth your bills (although we don’t know anything more about this bag…except for the pics we have here). For now, there’s nothing much to say about this bag except that it’s stunning, and that it’s definitely something new from the brand that started it all, Saint Laurent. Look at the detailing and crochet-work on this piece, ain’t it supreme?

Also, let’s not forget about the “YSL” metal logo in front, which provides a solid contrast between the seemingly dainty background. It definitely sets the bar high for other upcoming bags! You can pair this off with lots of outfits in your wardrobe, and it’s also good for day-to-night outfit transitions. Also, the fringe! It’s definitely the cherry-on-top, the highlight of the bag’s design.

For more updates about this piece (and other bags), just stay tuned. They’re coming very soon!

Louis Vuitton Monogram V Bag Collection

CATEGORIES:Louis Vuitton


The iconic bags like the Neverfull and Speedy are getting more interesting each season. The prints are more than just for decoration purpose, there is a story behind it.

So what’s the story?

First, the V sign has been Nicolas Ghesquiere’s favorite since the day he took over the steering wheel of Louis Vuitton. He brilliantly searched in the archives of the house to look for inspiration and introduces beautiful handbags. One of the inspirations he got was the V symbol.

The Monogram V was first introduced for the Spring Summer 2015 Collection. It is inspired by the famous Louis Vuitton ads from the 1960’s. The Monogram Canvas easily mixes with the stylish “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez avec les Valises Louis Vuitton“ print.

The Monogram V is embellished in the Neverfull Bag, Speedy Bag and Pochette Accessories Bag. All three are iconic and have a long and rich history.

Next to the V symbol on the bag, there are words written. It reads: ‘Olez, Oguez, Oyagez Avex des Alises, Louis Vuitton’.
