I am usually not too fond of Louis Vuitton bags. I especially dislike their monogrammed range because I just don’t see the appeal of having a brand’s logos plastered all over my bag looking like a tacky advertisement. However, Sofia Coppola designed a bag for Louis Vuitton that got me obsessed! The SC bag is pure and simple elegance; I absolutely adore the minimalistic design and the no-fuss attitude it exudes. It’s such a beautiful bag in such a beautiful color! But, oh boy, is this bag expensive! $4.650? Like seriously, Louis Vuitton?

A.L.C. Small Lucas Duffel Bag
Update (05/09/2015): If you’re looking for a really high-quality LV look for less alternative, A.L.C.’s Lucas duffel satchel might be a good fit. The design is very similar to the SC bag and I bet the craftmanship is superb, too, but you’d have to spend $895 on this beauty. Which, however, is only about 1/5 compared to the price of the real deal, so overall it’s still a great deal.
