Although US has always loved names likes Chanel and it is true, that New Yorkers preferred this brand over other known designer handbags. Miami and the rest of the area had loved the brand but how about everywhere else? Oh, French designer handbags, had definitely dominated everyone else’s closet.
Louis Vuitton brand, established back in 1854 by the renowned Louis Vuitton himself, made it as the world’s most valuable luxury bag. This recognition, mind you, is one of the highest recognition any brand can ever take, especially that it takes the luxury category. The RealReal, a consignment retailer based in San Francisco, conducted a survey showing the top five brands with the most number of sales from the biggest-spending cities in the United States. The five brands are Céline, Goyard, Hermes, Gucci, Chanel and of course, Louis Vuitton – almost all of which were French designer handbags.
StyleList revealed that Louis Vuitton swept all these other brands away when it comes to sales on cities that sold most designer handbags. The cities are: Denver, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Washington, San Francisco, Seattle and Dallas. No wonder why the company was listed as the most valuable luxury brand in the world by Forbes. Earning about $29.9 billion, the company definitely topped the list.
In purchasing French designer handbags, keep in mind that you will be doing a lot of spending. A Louis Vuitton bag would cost anywhere from $1,000 to $150,000. Units vary from classic monogram hobo to their latest or rare items.

Coming right from the second spot is Chanel, the second most popular brand in Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington D.C., San Francisco and the top for Miami and New York. New editions usually cost $5,000 but the special edition items could cost some thousand dollars.
The Italian brand, Gucci came in as the second best for collectors of Seattle and ranked third in Dallas and Denver.
Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco all chose Celine as the third best brand while Hermes, ranked the same in Miami and Washington D.C., but second in the Big Apple, New York.
Known for their Birkin Bags, Hermes recently sold a Himalayan Crocodile variety in an auction held last September in Los Angeles. The variety cost $185,000 for the event’s highest priced Parisian brand. Usual pre-loved Birkin sells for less than $10,000 and so, one should reserve quite some for a brand new piece. And when we mean some, we hope you know what we mean.
Goyard was the only other designer handbag that topped all three states and so happened to be second in Denver. Goyard was the oldest Parisian brand founded back in 1853 in Paris.
