Simple but Pricey: Louis Vuitton Thatâ€™s L.O.V.E. Tote
â€œYou canâ€™t spell the word LOVE without the letters â€œLVâ€? â€“ Marc Jacobs
Browsed eluxury today and noticed they finally have the Louis Vuitton That’s Love Canvas Tote available. . . and I did not know it retailed for $1720! That was a bit shocking in my opinion. Considering that it’s just a canvas shoppers tote. I donâ€™t know what Marc Jacobs was thinking when he produced this bag for Louis Vuitton, since it seems quite similar to his Marc Jacobs super inexpensive â€œSpecial Itemsâ€? line. The canvas totes in that line retail for only $10. Donâ€™t get me wrong, the Louis Vuitton Thatâ€™s Love Tote is totally cute for summer and all, but the pricing is a bit on the extreme side – I was thinking $850-ish.
Whatâ€™s so special about Louis Vuittonâ€™s Love Bag? Well the cotton canvas body is ornamented with the hand-stitched logo, which apparently took over 20 hours and 620 gold and silver tube beads to create. Thatâ€™s the only flashy part of the bag. The interior is simple, lined with linen and features one single pocket. Measurements: 13â€? x 14.5â€? x 4â€?
Worth it? Or a big fat nay?
