I recently took in my Louis Vuitton speedy 25 for a vachetta repair service. I have taken in this particular bag for a louis Vuitton vachetta repair before, on the piping that edges the bag. But this time, I knew I needed the handles completely swapped out. The bag is 10 years old, and even though i have used the Lovin’ My Bags to great effect in the past (read about it here), I decided that it was time to just take the bag in for a vachetta repair service and start a new. In case you are wondering, to repair the vachetta handles on a Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 is $240, plus an additional $240 to repair all four of the leather hexagonal shapes that attach the straps to the bag and the rivets.
Since the price of a new Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 now runs at a cool$1000, I thought half the price was better than replacing the whole bag. Watch the video to see how it all turned out. Its quite a bit of a story time as Louis Vuitton really did play with my emotions on this one. In a nutshell, the new vachetta handles and chapes looked amazing, but my Louis Vuitton repair had some other unforgivable issues. Please take a look at my pictures below, and definitely watch the video if you have ever considered turning in your purse or luggage for a louis vuitton vachetta repair service!
