Here’s a new edition of Bag Versus featuring the Louis Vuitton Lockme II Bag and the Givenchy Pandora Pure Bag. These two bags have a lot of similarities in their appearances. Both bags features a top handle, a flap front and an adjustable/removable shoulder strap. Both can be carried by hand, on the shoulder or as a crossbody bag. Any of these two is a perfect everyday bag with its spacious interior and provides options on how to carry it. Now let’s check the differences between the two.
The Louis Vuitton Lockme II Bag has taken its inspiration from the Lockme Bag. The Lockme II was first introduced for the brand’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection. It is made of soft calf leather and has a tone-on-tone twill textile interior. The bag features silver brass metallic hardware with an LV logo twist closure. There are two press buttons on the sides for adjusting the space of the bag. It includes 2 separate compartments with an inside pocket and 2 smartphone pockets.
Available in a variety of colors such as Rose Ballerine, Dahlia, Tan, Dune, Noir and Vanille Noir.
|Louis Vuitton Lockme II Bag||$2,910.00 (USD)||11.0″ L x 7.9″ H x 4.3″ W|
The Givenchy Pandora Pure Bag is a feminine and structured version of the Pandora Bag. The bag features a flap front with an exterior zip pocket with front zipper and Givenchy logo metal. It has a fabric interior with one zip and one open pocket. It comes in three sizes, Mini, Small and Medium.
The Pandora Pure is available in different kinds of material like Calfskin, Watersnake and Python.
|Givenchy Pandora Pure Mini Bag||$1,850.00 (USD)||7.5” H x 9” W x 3” D|
|Givenchy Pandora Pure Small Bag||$2,250.00 (USD)||10.2” H x 11.8” W x 4.7” D|
|Givenchy Pandora Pure Medium Bag||$2,475.00 (USD)||11.8” H x 15” W x 5.9” D|
Although the Givenchy Pandora Pure Bag has a variety of sizes and materials to choose from, the Louis Vuitton Lockme II Bag wins this round. The Lockme II Bag has an elegant and classy look, which you can use from day to night. The top handle on the Pandora Pure is too long and is not as functional as the more tote like handle on the Lockme II. The interior divider on the Lockme II also maintains the shape of the overall bag, which has a very soft leather. The Pandora Pure will eventually sink in over prolonged use due to its less structured form.
