Louis Vuitton Amps Up the Luxury With $31,000 Crocodile Handbags

A visit to Paris during my 2007 semester abroad marked my first designer purchase. While Chanel, Dior and Givenchy were too far from my grasp, the Louis Vuitton Speedy 35 bag was one misguided charge away. Seven years later and my dad still asks about the “gym bag” he never sees on me anymore.

Louis Vuitton is now stepping away from its famous LV (and possibly entry-level customer) with a debut of truly luxurious exotic skin handbags set to appeal to more refined (richer) customers. The five new crocodile and alligator bags are instant classics that cost more than some salaries. These are the kind of bags you would see Jackie Kennedy Onassis toting on her way to Capri or Grace Kelly using to cover her bump. Prices range from $9,950 to $31,000, ensuring that they won’t be seen on a pauper like myself anytime soon.
