There’s an inexplicable joy in owning a Louis Vuitton bag on its own but a vintage LV? Now, that’s added bliss.
Personally, I don’t own one. I simply can’t afford it plus the fact that I’m not a bag person. I reckon my mum will find more rhyme and reason in spending X amount of money on a bag but I won’t. My spending preference for bags is still conservatively lower.
I reckon my friend Thea will most likely relate better with my mum. She owns this vintage Louis Vuitton Shoulder bag, which is roughly aged around 30+ years. It’s amazing how its condition is well maintained. I vaguely recall it’s all about moist and leather care — or so Thea told me.
How about you folks? Do you share this affinity to LV bags? How do you feel about getting vintage LVs? More in value or it doesn’t really matter? Can you share your own tricks on how to care for your leather bags? Come, let’s get some best practices in. I’m certain others will deeply appreciate your help!
