Louis Vuitton Scuba Tote

Years ago buying a Louis Vuitton bag means owning classic for years. Now, LV has become very trendy with seasonal products which sometimes make me wonder why anyone will pay so much money for them and how does a gal keep up?
Don't take me wrong, these products are usually very catchy in color or silhouette but I seriously have an issue paying $2580 for a synthetic rubber tote.

I saw the tote immediately, a gal would need to be blind to overlook this fuchsia tote. The material feels rubbery with a coating of powder. Of course the SA tells me it's made of Neoprene which sounds really high tech. Of course, synthetic rubber just won't sound as expensive or high tech. Yes ladies, neoprene is a Dupont trade name for its synthetic rubber which is used for products such as wetsuits, hint "Scuba" tote. So let me ask you this, will you pay close to $2600 for this bright LV tote or it's just me with my not-deep-enough-pocket?

Basic Stat:

Subtle monogram-embossed neoprene with smooth grained leather trim
Polished golden brass hardware
Thin leather shoulder straps with round logo-engraved stud attachments
Removable leather ID tag
Louis Vuitton plaque on front
Open top with central clasp closure; tucks in each side to adjust bag capacity
Fine textile lining
Interior zipped pocket and flat pocket
23.6"x 18.1"x 12.2"

  7. Love the bag, but no way. It's rubber. If it can go under water, but isn't meant to be under water, then it's not worth the price. :)

  13. It's crazy, especially in this economy.
    I will admit that LV bags are "comfortable" in that they don't slip off your shoulder constantly, etc. but all in all I am just not a big fan of LV. I don't find high-end brand names all that attractive to be honest -- I am more into one-of-a-kind pieces.
