BW: How’d you pick up this bag?
D: I kind of impulse bought this when I was in the Louis Vuitton store – it was so pretty and also looked like the perfect crossbody! I wanted something functional to use as an everyday errand bag and I thought the MM size fit the profile. It also doubles as a clutch if you remove the shoulder strap.
BW: Was this everything you had hoped it to be?
D: It definitely is my most used non-tote bag. I use this a lot on the weekends when I don’t have as much to carry with me (like work-related items). I think it also goes well with everything I typically wear because it’s a nice neutral brown color. Even with more formal situation, it looks classy and pulls the whole outfit together.
BW: Given its high price point, are there things about the Favorite that make you regret your purchase in any way?
D: Not really – the only downside I can really think of is that the gold hardware label in the front gets scratched pretty easily. It’s a small thing, so I don’t really mind it. Oh, I also noticed that if you accidentally drop the bag the contents spill out quite easily. It was definitely not designed for someone to chuck across the room, but I think that’s just an expected shortfall of any flap bag.
You can find the Favorite on Louis Vuitton’s website here in three different designs on coated canvas (Monogram, Damier Ebene, and Damier Azul) for $985 in two sizes: MM (larger of the two) and PM. The dimensions for the Favorite MM are: 11″ x 6.7″ x 1.6″.
