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

Handbags

louis-vuitton-alma-bag-care-clean-maintenance

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!

Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane Replica Bag Review

Handbags

louis vuitton monogram pallas havane original

The Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane purse is one of the most beautiful bags I have ever seen. It is the perfect example of style and elegance that somehow manages to bring a large smile to every girl that’s wearing it. The most precious materials were combined with the finest lines to create a perfectly designed purse.  For the first time we can find the LV Monogram canvas combined with the natural cowhide leather trim and the colored calf leather on a single purse. This bag was definitely created to enchant our fashion desire.

The main material used to create the Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane is the iconic LV brown canvas, but what makes the difference between these models is the color of the supple calf leather used on the V shaped top of the bag. There are a lot of variations of colors for this part of the purse that really make a difference between the Pallas bags: Pink, Clementine, Amethyste, Pistache, Havane, Aurore, Cerise, Quetsche, Noir and Saffran.

louis vuitton monogram pallas havane replica

The replica of the Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane that I am reviewing today is one of the best replicas I have ever seen. The canvas looks exactly like the original. It has that authentic shine and texture you can only find on the genuine bags. The pattern is very exact, it perfectly reproduces the LV logo and the flower motifs and when you touch it, the canvas feels exactly like it should: supple and durable.

About the dimensions of the LV Pallas I can tell you that it is a large size bag: 13.4″ x 10.2″ x 4.7″. It has a rectangular shape and two little triangles on both lateral sides that allows it to get larger when you need it and smaller when you have less things to carry.

I have to say that there is something that I appreciate the most on this bag: the safety of my belongings. Most of the tote bags are very unsafe because they have a snap closing tab or a hook that make me feel very unsecure. Now this Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane doesn’t have this issue, all my stuff is secured by a durable double zip closure. The zipper is made of a beautifully crafted gold metal that adds this bag an elegant and stylish aspect.

The original LV Pallas comes with some beautiful handles made of natural cowhide Toron Leather. They have an arched shape; they are sturdy and very nicely rounded. For an exclusive effect the inside margins of these handles are red colored. Looking at the replica I am reviewing today I can’t see much of a difference, there are the same Toron leather handles that look very similar to the original ones. These handles are connected to the bag with two rectangular thick metallic plates. These gold plates are engraved with the circled R, “LOUIS VUITTON and “PARIS” written on three different rows. All these markings are present both on my replica and on the original bags.

The inside of the bag is as beautiful as the outside. It is made of a very nice microfiber lining that has the same color as the calf leather used for the upper side of the bag, the V shaped one. The replica and the original both have two very nice and useful smartphone pockets at the interior.

I am not the shoulder type bag person, but if you like wearing your purse this way the LV Pallas has a beautiful adjustable strap that will help you carry your bag everywhere you go. I have to admit that it feels very confortable to wear the bag this way buy I am pretty stubborn and I prefer the handles.

The most important thing when you buy a replica bag is to make sure it doesn’t have any misspellings and that all the authenticity markings are present and correct.  My replica Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane has all the correct markings and engravings and the stitching is very nice. The threads are evenly spaced apart and they do not have any loose threads.

Overall my Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane replica is a very beautiful and very functional one. It has a unique shape, it is spacious enough for all your daily stuff and it is very stylish so you can look amazing every day.

The evolution of the Monogram Print – this summer Louis Vuitton adds a nautical chain print to their collection. It’s inspired by the Monogram Bay theme.

In nature, colors mean a lot. Some insects with bright purple color are warning the enemies to stay away because they’re dangerous.

The jaguar has black dots all over its body; when you accidentally meet one, make sure to run away – quickly.

But anyways, Louis Vuitton proudly presents a new print for this season and it’s called the ‘Jungle Dots’. So carry these babies to give a statement – I am confident, strong and dangerous.

The Jungle Dots Bag Collection ranges from iconic handbags like the Speedy Bag to the tiniest accessories like the Zippy Wallet. The colors are bright but beautiful and remarkable – red background with dark purple dots are going to have people eyeing on you.

But that’s okay; I am companied with my friend Louis Vuitton. Please meet my bag.

And for those that can’t immediately see (because it’s designed transparent) – if you look closely and with attention, you can notice the Monogram Vernis print attached additionally on the top of the Jungle Dots. It’s completely transparent, so it’s understandable if you don’t recognize it instantly.

So that’s the secret weapon.

These beautiful bags do come with a price tag. Let us share the details…

Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Neverfull MM

Handbags

One of Louis Vuitton’s most iconic handbags is the Neverfull. This fabulous purse is an endless source of style, sophistication and beauty. Over the years, this model has been interpreted by LV in numerous colors and materials, but the core design has kept its original key details. Needless to day that this super fashionable handbag is the dream of every modern woman who adores to luxury and style.

The Neverfull family includes a couple of very popular and attractive versions such as the Monogram Canvas, Damier Ebene Canvas, Damier Azur Canvas and Epi Leather. One of my favorite looks is the Neverfull Monogram Canvas in MM size. The PM isn’t spacious enough for my needs and the GM looks too big for my petite figure. The interior of the purse also offers a couple of very chic color variations. The textile lining comes in pivoine(purple), rose ballerine(light pink), beige and cherry. I personally prefer the cherry lining. It makes a very nice contrast with the exterior brown monogram canvas.

The Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas MM measures 12.5 x 11.4 x 6.7 inches. It is a very spacious bags that allows you to carry inside many useful things, from a small laptop to a set of changing clothes for stylish Friday evening cocktails after a hard day at the office. This purse is perfect for balancing your professional life with your social one.

The top leather handles are manufactured from light cream natural cowhide leather with discrete stitching on the margins. Their long arched shape is both stylish and practical. It leaves a lot of room for wearing the purse either on your wrist or shoulder. Plus, they have the ideal width as they feel utterly comfortable.

Every single metallic piece added on this Neverfull bag model has been manufactured from stainless steel and plated with gold color. These are flawlessly finished and polished. Furthermore, on every metallic part there is the Louis Vuitton name or logo engraved.

You have probably notice two long leather strings on both sides of the Neverfull. These are used to reduce the size of the purse. You simply push the middle leather ring upwards and when it reaches the top it makes the purse smaller.

One very nice addition of the LV Neverfull Monogram Canvas is the removable zippered clutch with red lining. This very practical and stylish pochette can be either worn at special occasions or used as a wallet. It can pretty much accommodate essential things like your ID, cards and money.

The fresh and refined interior textile lining is in a vibrant red color and it featured heritage details inspired by LV classic style. Its nicely chosen chromatic offer a delightful pop of color to the overall stylish look of the purse. Also, at the inside there is one very useful textile-lined zippered pocket.

There are many thing to appreciate at the Louis Vuitton Neverfull Monogram Canvas MM, but what I like the most is its timeless look. Even though the brand has redesigned its never versions with bold colors and chic accessories, the purse has preserved its classic charm. It is a design that fascinates and invites you to explore your style to the fullest.

Louis Vuitton Tambour Monogram Sun Tourbillon

Jewelry & Watches

The Tambour Monogram Sun Tourbillon, a truly exceptional timepiece, retains its LV80 calibre technical sophistication, with the Louis Vuitton La Fabrique du Temps signature, and is equipped with the most famous of complications: the Tourbillon. Once juxtaposed, the two bridges, located at the centre of the dial and composed of three petals respectively, form the LV flower. Its automatic winding makes it an even rarer piece whose overall design can be admired thanks to its sapphire background.

The Tambour Monogram Sun Tourbillon would not be the same without its particular watchmaking artistry. It all hinges around the dial that is adorned with a Louis Vuitton flower. Crafted on guilloché mother-of-pearl, it stands out from a snow setting. This setting features diamonds of different sizes arranged randomly so as to completely cover the precious metal. The soft colours accentuate the delicate ornamentation in shades of white and pink mother-of-pearl, white diamonds, pink and blue sapphires.
