Dream of owning a handbag from Louis Vuitton, but don’t want to spend a fortune? Well, perhaps one of the most affordable Louis Vuitton bags can satisfy your craving. And before you’ve asked how I was able to find them, let me tell you, it was not an easy task. Louis Vuitton doesn’t let you sort by price on their website (wondering why), so I literally had to scroll through hundreds of different styles in order to find the most affordable ones. But don’t think that I’m complaining! I’ve actually ended up uncovering quite a few fabulous bags along the way and without waiting any further to introduce them to you, here are the 12 most affordable Louis Vuitton bags the money can buy in 2023.
12 Most Affordable Louis Vuitton Bags in 2023
1. Nice Mini ($1,150)
Like the look of Louis Vuitton’s Vanity PM, but don’t want to spend $2,840 plus tax? Well, if yes, then you’ll definitely want to check out the Louis Vuitton Nice Mini. Arriving in a classy vanity bag silhouette, the Louis Vuitton Nice Mini is much like the Louis Vuitton Vanity PM, just without a strap. Basically, just add your own and you’re good to go! Fashioned in the brand’s iconic Monogram Canvas, the Louis Vuitton Nice Mini will be making a bold fashion statement while worn as a shoulder or crossbody bag, while serving as a practical storage for all of your cosmetics, or any other essentials. And don’t even try to tell me that at $1,150 retail, this is not a steal!
2. Pochette Accessoires ($1,290)
Next in the list of the most affordable Louis Vuitton Bags comes the iconic Pochette Accessoires. First released in 1992, the bag has since become a staple in nearly every LV lover’s collection due to its classic design and relatively affordable price point (the bag currently retails for $1,290 at Louis Vuitton). Arriving in Louis Vuitton’s classic canvas, namely Monogram and Damier Azur, the Pochette Accessoires is a compact shoulder bag which can be worn multiple ways due to its detachable strap. You could basically either wear it as it is, remove the strap completely to transform the bag into a clutch, or swap the strap for a longer one to wear it crossbody.
3. Speedy 25 ($1,490)
As the story goes, in 1959 Audrey Hepburn asked Louis Vuitton to custom make her a mini version of their Keepall Bag, which she could carry on the everyday basis. Louis Vuitton gladly took on the request and in the early 60s presented her with the Speedy 25 – the bag we know today as one of the brand’s icons. Furthermore, till this day, the Speedy 25 remains one of Louis Vuitton’s most affordable bags, starting at just $1,490 in the classic Monogram version. The Speedy is also available in other sizes, though, such as the Speedy Nano, Speedy 20, 30 and 35. However, those options will be pricier, with the Speedy Nano starting at $1,760.
4. Noé BB ($1,620)
An iteration of the iconic Louis Vuitton Noé Bag, the Noé BB also makes the list of the most affordable Louis Vuitton bags. Actually, this particular version of the bag retains all the key features of the original Noé – from the iconic bucket bag shape to the practical drawstring closure. Arriving in Louis Vuitton’s iconic canvas, which is notorious for its durability, the Louis Vuitton Noé BB will serve as a practical bag for everyday and more. Furthermore, coming at just $1,620 retail, it will make for an excellent entry-level buy.
5. Alma BB ($1,760)
The rumor has it that the Louis Vuitton Alma was originally designed for Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. But even if it wasn’t, it still remains as one of Louis Vuitton’s most emblematic bags, released nearly 90 years ago in 1934. Characterized by a dome-shaped silhouette with two Toron handles, today the Louis Vuitton Alma arrives in an array of different sizes, including the adorable Alma BB which currently starts at just about $1,760. And don’t be fooled by the bag’s compact size. The Alma BB is actually pretty spacious and easily fits in a 500ml bottle of water, along with other essentials. It’s also fitted with a detachable strap which is perfect for crossbody wear.
6. Graceful MM ($1,890)
Anyone else thinks that the Graceful is one of Louis Vuitton’s most underrated bags? Set in a practical hobo bag silhouette with an extra roomy interior and a magnetic closure, the Louis Vuitton Graceful makes for a perfect everyday handbag, combining wearability and style. Arriving in Louis Vuitton’s classic canvas with a supple, flat handle in vachetta leather, the Graceful will be easy to carry both by hand and over the shoulder. The bag currently retails for $1,760 in the PM size and $1,890 in the MM, which is a really good price, especially considering the many occasions the bag can be used for.
7. Neverfull MM ($2,030)
Yes, I also had to include the Neverfull in this list, despite the fact that it’s no longer going to be sold in stores (In case if you haven’t heard, from now on the bag will be pre-order only. See the news here). After all, the Louis Vuitton Neverfull is just a classic and you can’t deny the fact that it’s going to make for a perfect first-time Louis Vuitton purchase. Especially the Neverfull in the MM size in the brand’s classic Monogram, or Damier Ebene canvas, will be an absolute workhorse, serving as a fabulous office tote during the day, while also performing as an excellent shopping or travel bag.
8. Odéon PM ($2,100)
Another honorable mention is the Louis Vuitton Odéon PM. Right, Louis Vuitton has brought back its iconic Odéon bag back in 2020 and it has since released it in an array of options, from the stylish Odéon PM shoulder bag to the roomy Odéon Tote. Actually, both are currently priced at just $2,100 at Louis Vuitton, which makes them fabulous options to consider if you are looking for an affordable Louis Vuitton handbag. The Louis Vuitton Odéon PM and MM bags specifically, also retain most of the features of the original Louis Vuitton Odéon, incl. the stylish messenger bag silhouette and the adjustable shoulder strap.
9. Locky BB ($2,230)
Like a bit of novelty when it comes to handbags? If yes, then definitely check out the Louis Vuitton Locky BB. A true statement piece, the Locky BB combines LV’s classic Monogram canvas with Epi leather, while displaying an oversized gold-tone LV padlock at the front. Compact and structured, this is a bag that will work fabulously from day to evening. Carry it either by its top handle, or attach an adjustable shoulder strap to wear it over the shoulder and crossbody. The Locky BB currently retails for $2,230, which is fairly affordable compared to Louis Vuitton’s other trendier styles.
10. Cluny Mini ($2,280)
According to Louis Vuitton, their Cluny Mini handbag is designed to delight LV lovers. And it sure does! The adorable mini bag features all of the brand’s signatures, incl. the classic Toron handle and key bell in the Maison’s iconic vachetta leather. Furthermore, the Louis Vuitton Cluny Mini also comes with a removable textile shoulder strap, which only enhances its versatility by letting you wear the handbag multiple ways, from a top handle to a crossbody. Get it in the brand’s classic Monogram canvas and have it in your collection for decades.
11. Boulogne ($2,370)
If versatility is a key for you when choosing a handbag, consider taking a look at the new Louis Vuitton Boulogne. A re-release of Louis Vuitton’s archival design from the 80s, the Louis Vuitton Boulogne is offered in the brand’s iconic Monogram canvas and features a removable strap which enables both shoulder and crossbody carry. There is also an additional chain strap which gives the bag a more sophisticated touch. However, that one can also be removed, transforming the Boulogne Bag into an ultra-chic clutch.
12. Keepall Bandoulière ($2,440)
Wrapping up the list of the most affordable Louis Vuitton bags with another classic from LV – the Keepall Bandoulière. Lightweight and spacious, the Keepall 45 Bandoulière is offered in the brand’s classic canvas and comes with a longer strap which lets you wear it comfortably over the shoulder. Take it everywhere, from overnight trips to longer journeys. The Louis Vuitton Keepall Bandoulière is going to be your trusty travel companion. Definitely consider investing in one if you are someone who travels a lot.
