Louis Vuitton Speedy bag second hand via Eskadi.com

The very first Louis Vuitton bag ever offered, the Speedy was first available in the 1930's and in a 30cm length. The bag was relatively unknown until Audrey Hepburn asked for a smaller version of the Keepall in the 1950's and so a 25cm speedy was born. A brand new Speedy bought in store will have a lock and key included, so keep an eye out for that if you're buying resale.

The Noe was originally designed by the grandson of the brand's founder for men to hold bottles of champagne. An original size can fit five bottles *please drink responsibly* but now comes in a range of sizes, patterns and materials. 

Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag second hand via Eskadi.com

Ah, the Neverfull. We all know a friend (maybe we are that friend) that always has one on their shoulder, stocked with everything you could ever need or want. This bag didn't come on to the scene until 2007, but it's durability, size and reversibility (yes, it's reversible!) has made it quickly popular. 

Louis Vuitton Boite Chapeau bag second hand via Eskadi.com

Translating into "hat box" the Boite Chapeau is the newest of these 4, only available in the last few years. It can be worn as a clutch, shoulder or cross body and comes in a number of sizes, making it incredibly versatile. However, the complexity of its construction and intricate detailing make it one of the more expensive bags on the LV roster. 

Now that we've made it so easy to find the best price, what are you waiting for? Find your next second hand Louis Vuitton on Eskadi.
