[Guide] Louis Vuitton Neverfull PM/MM/GM + Review

Although it was only first introduced in 2007, the Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote, in all of its endless iterations, has become one of Vuitton’s all-time most successful bags.

Let's dive into the bag's history and learn more about the current styles available.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull Bag History

The story goes that the Neverfull was created to compete with the Goyard Saint Louis tote. Which could totally be true, since the bags do have to resemble appearance? 

But then again, the tote shape is quite common in the land of designer bags, so we can't quite confirm who copied who.

Either way, the Neverfull is made with the same exquisite craftsmanship as other iconic Louis Vuitton bags, which means that this bag is as sturdy as can be.

When Neverfull was first released, it came by itself. Later in 2014, Louis Vuitton upgraded this model with an internal pouch that comes with all the canvas versions released after 2014.

After adding a pouch, Louis Vuitton made the major price increase, breaking the psychological point of over $1,000 for a tote made of PVC.

In 2014 the Neverfull price skyrocketed from $980 to a little lover than $1,200.

2014 also brought another important Neverfull update.

Louis Vuitton extended the Neverfull color scheme and introduced three new colors on the inside for the monogram print for Spring.

You can get it in the regular beige interior or fuschia, orange, yellow.

How Much is a Used Neverfull?

An authentic used Neverfull will cost you somewhat between $500 and $1,500 depending on condition. Even if the purse is severely damaged, i.e. has holes in the upper trim and probably cracks in canvas, it's still worth those $500 even in junk condition. Considering a new one is around $2,000, the price is unlikely to go down any time soon.
