Watercolor Speedy

Although the watercolor speedy was only available for a limited amount of time, it still has a very strong following in the preloved market. Louis Vuitton collaborated with Richard Prince to release this limited line of handbags. Like the multicolor line, the watercolor Speedy comes in the white or black canvas. However, only the 35 cm size was released in mainland USA. The smaller 30 cm size was released in Asia and Hawaii; this smaller size is the more in demand since smaller bags are on trend at the moment.


Louis Vuitton Denim Mini Pleaty

This is another vintage Louis Vuitton bag that still has a loyal following. Even though there were lots of different styles released for the denim collection, the mini Pleaty is the most popular because small bags are on trend at the moment. The mini Pleaty came in a variety of colors; the blue denim is now seen everywhere in consignment stores. However, if you love pink, the mini Pleaty was also made with a pink denim.

Monogram Ink Speedy BB Black

This bag was released a few years ago and soon discontinued by Louis Vuitton. The ink speedy BB is a little bit bigger than the nano speedy. If you love small bags and want something more practical, this understated Louis Vuitton bag is perfect for you. Although not very popular, this gorgeous black bag is perfect for every occasion because of its size and color. Crafted in luxurious lambskin, this bag is very soft and screams luxury. Best of all, the ink speedy BB is unique in the house of Louis Vuitton because it's lambskin. This leather and monogram embossing is unique because it's different than traditional Louis Vuitton monogram imprints.

Louis Vuitton Cherry Blossom Collection

The Louis Vuitton cherry blossom collection is another collaboration with the Japanese artist, Takashi Murakami. With the immense success of the multicolor line, Louis Vuitton launched another limited collection together with Takashi Murakami. Using the iconic Japanese national flower, cherry blossom, the colorful yet demure cherry blossom collection was created in 2003. Out of this collection, the pochette pieces are the most popular collector's items even to this day. To differ the limited collection pieces, Louis Vuitton added a little leather bow in the front to accentuate femininity in this little pochette. However, to make this piece more mature, Louis Vuitton added rock studs to give it a little edge. The result is a perfectly balanced design that fits most people. Go for the classic monogram cherry piece if you are a diehard fan of Louis Vuitton traditional monogram. The pink monogram with pink cherry blossom pochette is the most feminine one out of the three. The gold monogram with the red cherry blossom is the rarest and perfect for a collector. However, keep in mind that the red cherry blossom pochette is prone to bleeding because of the red flowers. So, carefully check the condition before making a commitment on this item in the pre-loved market.
