Louis Vuitton’s The Tribute Patchwork Handbag price at whopping premium of US$45,350 Features : Each bag comes in a transparent perspex trunk, complete with leather handles, and a specially moulded interior compartment with anti-counterfeiting design.

1st Louis Vuitton‘s anti-counterfeit handbag and 1st taken the ‘trademark mixes of new materials to new lengths’ , launched the world’s most pricy The Tribute Patchwork Handbag , which considering price and exclusivity, could very well become the next “it” bag for celebrities and fashionistas. The large shopper has a noticeable gold chain handle, but the thing that makes it stand out is that it is made up of samples of 15 different Louis Vuitton Handbags from the LV spring/summer and cruise lines. “It takes all the best parts …

of the season’s creations and rolls them into one. We are confident that the bag is utterly exclusive and that it will remain so,” said a spokesman. The bag is limited edition and each one is numbered and price at US$45,350.

However, it is the most counterfeited brand in the world – just one per cent of all products claiming to be made by Louis Vuitton are genuine. With this in mind, the Tribute Patchwork was created not just for aesthetic effect but in conjunction with the company’s anti-counterfeiting unit, which is confident that this may be the first Louis Vuitton product that cannot be faked.

These bags are never seen on the shop floor and can be bought by appointment only. All handbags are made individually at Louis Vuitton’s secret ‘workshop’ – it balks at the term factory – in Asniäres-sur-Seine, north-west Paris. This is also where the Louis Vuitton laboratory does its testing. A mechanical arm lifts a handbag loaded with a 3.5kg weight then drops it on the floor to test its dur- ability. Another piece of equipment bombards bags with ultraviolet rays to test resistance to fading, while zips are tugged open and shut 5,000 times. This vigorous procedure ensures a Louis Vuitton bag rarely fails to justify its lifetime guarantee.

This makes Louis Vuitton’s The Tribute Handbag , a rare art as well as exclusive rare handmade collection with limted edition to own for a lifetime.
