LV or YSL handbags

Hi all, I am thinking to buy a luxury shoulder bag for my wife birthday. However, I doesn't have any experience with all the brand. I thinking to buy her either LV or YSL. Which brand do you think is better value and why?

LV MYLOCKME CHAIN POCHETTE or YSL ENVELOPE CHAIN WALLET IN GRAIN DE POUDRE EMBOSSED LEATHER

Thanks in advance!

        WHY ARE YOU YELLING?

          LOUD NOISES!

          • @spackbace: NOISE, NOISE, LOUD NOISE NOISE, AND A CIVIL WAR CANNON!

  • 'Value' is the last thing that comes to mind when you mention these brands.

    • I know but she been thinking to have one for very long time.

        So just get one that has classic styling. Otherwise you end up with a dated looking expensive dust collector.

        • Thanks

  • i hate this site sometimes..

    I'd go with YSL. It is a more classic design as compared to that LV.

  • although i'm more of an Hermes supporter type, but considering luxury bags discussion on this site here is kinda out of touch? Maybe? YSL FTW.

      Why? It's a site for bargains, not just cheap products.

      You can get a bargain on a $250,000 car: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/441689

      But do agree YSL is classier than the widely imitated, hence cheap looking, LV.

      • what i was saying was, because this is a bargain site, i dont really think having luxury bags justify as getting a bargain. $200 bags still get the job done if you know what i mean, but hey, it's case per se. Yes, LV had been going messy with their design's direction recently (few years)

    • Hermes lol. The discussion was between Audi and Bmw not a Rolls Royce. LV are for basic bitches btw.

        yes, and i am driving a KIA , super low yield investment.

      Yeah, I'm sure your basic ass is a 'Hermes type' lol! All that supposed money you'd think you could have learned better grammar!

      • i think you might wanna say " how come someone else with worse grammar than I am, able to afford Hermes?"

  • Get gucci

  • Both brands offer very different styling. At this price range it's best to get the one she likes, just ask her which one she wants.
    Don't risk choosing it yourself.
    Her being happy with the styling is far more important than a 10 second surprise element that may not go down well.

    • Thanks

    • I have just looked the 2 options, and my partner has the same black YSL and loves it. I also like the look of it. When I buy her handbags I also have to approve the design. If I personally don't like the look of it, I wouldn't allow her to get it. She can buy it herself lol.
      LV bags are typically the traditional brown/tan/gold styling. That's what it's known for, so the LV option you have doesn't look that great and represent LV well, and it's a higher price. But that's my opinion and it does not count lol.

    • Take her shopping with you, half the experience of these purchases is getting to go to the store.

    Don't make the decision yourself. Seriously, that old school bullshit isn't worth the risk.

    If you want to still make it a surprise take her out for a day together, walk in to the Luis Vuitton store and tell her to choose the bag she likes! That will really blow her away.

    One that doesn't have the logo printed all over the bag.

    Just give her your credit card.

    You'll never hear the end of it if you choose the wrong one.

    YSL for sure. Much more classier design and will last her for a very long time.

  • Ask one of her friends

  • Take a trip to KL and you can buy her one of each, plus pay for your airfare, all for less than one bag will cost in Australia

    • really? the last time I checked not much different?

    • Lol no

  • Just came back from Manila, lots of YSL bags to choose from. Got one for the wife, she was happy it only cost $100 :)

    Let women purchase their own hand bags.

    I could care less what brand you're after but I repeat, let women purchase their own hand bags. It's a personal thing for them. You can be there with her when she buys it but she should make the choice since she'll be the one slinging it over her arm.

  • I love my YSL handbag and they are very well made so I don't think you'll go wrong with it.

    YSL is cheaper in Italy/France so you'll be able to save quite a bit if you or someone you know is travelling to europe and can help you buy it. The design you are after cost $1880 in AU. It's EUR895 in Italy/France and VAT refund is approx 17% so you'll be looking at around EUR742.85 or AUD1200.

  • Wouldn't be a bad idea to have a look on the Vintage/pre owned Market.
