I’ve never been one to go crazy for a special edition, limited time only collection, until I laid my eyes on the Tahitienne collection.
There is just something about the damier azur print with abstract splashy monogram print in rose ballerine painted, with that oh-so-cute rose ballerine interior.
I bought the Neverfull MM Damier Azur with the Rose Ballerine interior but it isn’t the Tahitienne collection. I wanted it so bad, but it was so HARD to get your paws on. The reason why is because it’s a UNICORN for so many LV-LVOERS.
This collection was released in 2017 Spring/Summer for a limited time. If you were one of the lucky ones to get one, hold onto it tight, it’s one of those collections that goes for MORE than the retail price.
This collection features vachetta trim, which is untreated leather. The vachetta does make it show it’s wear, it can develop a beautiful honey patina if cared for properly, or it can look it’s age very easily.
Interesting in knowing what pieces were in the collection, keep reading!

Retail Price: $1570 USD
One of the most commonly sought after pieces in this collection, and easiest to come by is the Neverfull. It is in the medium size (MM), features those beautiful flowers and a rose ballerine interior. This neverfull is unmistakeable when you see her in the wild. This is a piece of true beauty.
I really want to get my hands on one and sell my non-Tahitienne Neverfull one day. It’s truly beautiful.
The Neverfull MM for the last few years has also included a pouch, which is fantastic to remove from this massive bag and use as a clutch in a pinch. You will often see the Neverfull pouch sold separately from this collection, and rarely see it as part of this Neverfull in the preloved market anymore.
Speedy 30 Bandouliere
Retail Price: $1700 USD
The Speedy is one of the most iconic pieces from Louis Vuitton. It has been around since the 1930’s, so it only makes sense that they made a piece in this collection in this print.
It features a bandouliere, which means a strap, so that you don’t have to carry it with the top handle only, you can wear it cross body or on your shoulder. This makes this piece very versatile!
Keepall 50 Bandouliere
Retail Price: $2260 USD
This collection featured a Keepall, which is another one of their iconic pieces. It is a beautiful piece of carry-on luggage and to me this is the HOLY GRAIL of the Tahitienne collection. I have never seen this little baby in the pre-loved market. However, if I do, sorry gals she is all mine.
I know, I have said before that I am against having a Damier Azur Keepall due to the fact that it can easily show wear and it’s age, but this one is an exception and I would keep her for road trips only. It’s such a beautiful piece, that I have only seen in pictures.
Retail Price: $1110 USD
The Noe was originally invented by Louis Vuitton to carry champagne bottles, 5 to be exact, 4 right side up and one in the middle upside down. I think a bag designed to carry champagne bottles exudes luxury and is perfect for any collection.
The Noe that is in this collection is the nano model, so it doesn’t fit regular sized champagne bottles but it’s the cutest little bucket bag.
Retail Price: $470 USD
Yes, this is TECHNICALLY a bag for your makeup. It comes with a washable interior, which makes it perfect for whatever you chose to put in it.
The Toiletry 26 was made famous by Princess Diana, because she used it as a clutch. Now, it is a super desirable piece for any LV collection as you can easily add a chain to it to carry it on your shoulder.
Mini Pochette Accessories
Retail Price: $365 USD
The mini Pochette is the perfect beginner piece to the world of luxury, because it’s super versatile and comes in at a great price point. It features a gold chain wrist strap that you can use to either carry on your wrist or attach to the inside of your handbag.
There are several chains that you can buy that are non-LV that attach to this perfect to convert it into a cute little crossbody piece.
This collection features a beautiful 100% silk scarf in this print. There is something extremely classy with a scarf like this. You can use your imagine (or look up @lvoeislv on instagram for inspiration).
A bandeau is a great way to capture the feel of this collection without investing in an whole bag. For a decent price point, you can get the bandeau (or twilly as it’s referred to in some brands).
The great part about a bandeau, is that you can tie it a million ways, on your purse in a bow, wrap your handles, in your hair, around your neck. The options are endless.
Zippy Coin Purse
This is a great piece if you like small wallets. It features a large opening, so you can easily access the contents inside. There are 4 credit card slots and 2 large gussetted compartments.
A bag charm is a great way to get a piece of the collection and jazz up other Damier Azur pieces to give that Tahitienne feel! Attach this to your bag and go!
This is a big wallet is a zipper that goes all around, it includes multiple card slots to keep all of your wallet essentials well organized. It has a zipper coin pocket inside and inside pockets.
Bora Bora Sneakers
Retail Price: $705 USD
These are the cutest sneakers ever! They are not easy to come by any means, but they are so cute. I love how girly they are with the rose ballerine features.
