Louis-Vuitton-Cruise-2017-Brazil-Store-Robbery

Louis Vuitton outlet debuted an expansive Cruise 2017 collection in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, earlier this week, but news out of the South American country wasn’t all positive for the French luxury brand. According to the New York Times, the Louis Vuitton handbag store in Rio’s upscale Ipanema neighborhood was robbed Tuesday morning, only two days after the attention-grabbing show.

Reports indicate the thieves made off with over $140 in replica handbags in the early morning hours; no products from other categories were mentioned. For reference, that’s about 36 of the brand’s popular City Steamer bags, which retail at $185 for the medium size is smooth leather.

Brazilian authorities did not stipulate which bags were taken, but Vuitton had released a handful of Cruise 2017 bags for general purchase immediately after the show on Saturday. The replica bags are only available online in the US, but Vanessa Friedman of the NYT speculates that local excitement and attention over the show may have influenced the robbers, and the occasion certainly could have made a timely hit more attractive.

If you see any Louis Vuitton replica bag available from Brazilian sellers with prices that seem too good to be true, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

How to spot a fake Louis Vuitton

The pre-owned luxury market is a fast growing phenomenon in India. It fuels the aspiration of luxury seekers and the younger generation who want to own a premium and luxury product.

It’s given a wide platform for the buyers to pick and choose from more than 100 international brands at reasonable prices. Owning a fake Louis Vuitton at half the price (which was difficult as it never goes on discount) is now possible, because of this genre. However, sometimes there are hesitations before owning a pre-owned luxury product; here are a few basic factors to consider which will make your decision easier:

Authenticity

Never buy a product without getting a guarantee of authenticity from the company. Know how they do their authenticity checks, their guarantee against fakes, if they provide any certification, etc. If it is an online purchase, do call up their office and ensure all your queries are answered.

While buying a Louis Vuitton replica bag pay attention to the following details – the tail of the ‘L’ is very short. The ‘O’s are very round and look bigger than the ‘L’. The zipper is on the left while the counterfeit zipper is on the right.

Condition

A very important factor to consider. Buy a product whose condition is almost as good as new- with minimal scratches or stains on the metal hardware, leather and cloth of the bag, glass of the watch, soles of the shoes, etc. If there is any hardware missing, like a zip or buckle, avoid purchasing that.

Spa

Ensuring that the products get a new life when they reach you is important. Spa-bio cleans and refurbishes a product giving it a new look. This ensures that the product is hygienic and deodorised. Buyers should make sure their bag, shoes, sunglasses, etc have gone through this vital process.

Price

It is always an advantage in the pre-owned genre. If your product is priced at around 50 per cent of the original price, it’s always a good deal. If it is more than 70 per cent, you might as well put a few more thousands and buy a new one. So, if you’re getting a Louis Vuitton replica for half the price, don’t miss it for anything. Also, you can resell the same product at around 10 per cent less.

Packaging

The original dust bags, cards, boxes of the luxury company gives the product more value. Do enquire if they have the same, for your desired product. If not, what is the kind of packaging they give? Since these are luxury products, it needs to be pampered even while it is stored, with beautiful and safe packaging. Most of all, find out if they have an outlet where you can touch and feel the product. It’ll give you all the more confidence in what you’re buying and the brand. Who knew that luxury shopping would be affordable some day? So, keep shopping and own a closet you always dreamed of.
