Inside The Louis Vuitton Danube Bag

Did you know that a majority of the time, Louis Vuitton named the bags and items after places or people? The Louis Vuitton Danube falls right under that category. The Louis Vuitton Danube handbag is named after the second longest river in Europe, which is compared with its very long shoulder drop.  The monogramed strap is adjustable to fit every body shape or size. 

The Danube is one of the Louis Vuitton classics most of us almost always have in our vintage bag collection. The Danube's squared shape is reminiscent of classic camera bags, that mostly serves a functional purpose and is unisex. The Louis Vuitton Danube crossbody is a slim bag crafted in an assortment of variations of Louis Vuitton’s iconic prints.  It is a bag that is ideal for everyday use with easy access to all your small essentials such as your phone, lipstick and more with its small front pocket.

The Danube is a smaller bag with a height of 22 centimeters, a width of 16 centimeters and a depth of 10 centimeters. It has a pocket on the inside, on the front outside and closes with a zipper. Perfect as an everyday bag and can transition beautifully into night.

Since its release, Louis Vuitton has designed newer Danube bags with rare prints such as their collaboration with Supreme in 2017 for their capsule collection.

The Louis Vuitton Danube crossbody is offered in 3 different sizes:

  • Louis Vuitton Danube GM
  • Louis Vuitton Danube MM
  • Louis Vuitton Danube PM

Unzip the Danube zipper closure to a narrow main compartment and slip pockets. It is big enough to carry your wallet, phone, keys and small daily essentials. The Louis Vuitton Danube GM can even fit an iPad mini.

The Danube bag has been around since the 1980s, so by owning one of our pre-owned, hand painted Danube handbags you can truly say you own a classic,  vintage handbag! The Danube Messenger bag has seen some re-editions over the years. It got a stylish update with the introduction of new materials, other use of hardware and colorful additions, making it a true iconic fashion piece.
