Louis Vuitton Alma was first released in 1930s and still is one of the classic pieces from Louis Vuitton. Just as Speedy, it boasts a countless number of colors, leathers and limited editions.
The legend says that Coco Chanel herself ordered this piece from Louis Vuitton to have a classic travel piece. The bag was named after the Alma bridge in Paris.
In 2019 the classic Alma was revisietd once again. Louis Vuitton just released the Neo Alma The Alma is a true classic that never goes out of style, and with big brands putting a focus on old and existing classics, it comes as no surprise that Louis Vuitton has just released a brand new version. Called the Neo Alma and crafted from soft, supple Monogram Empreinte leather with rounded top handles and a removable shoulder strap, Louis Vuitton’s latest Alma bag is incredibly eye-catching and the brand’s latest must-have. While both bags have the detachable shoulder strap, allowing for maximum versatility, sizing wise the BB would work best for day to night, while the PM is the perfect day bag.

Louis Vuitton Neo Alma Review
Let me be straightforward: a classic Alma is not the most comfortable bag. A canvas Alma has very structured sides, thus, the zipper will be scratching anything you take out of the bag.
That being said, Louis Vuitton Neo Alma seems to be one of the most comfortable Alma versions as the leather is softer. It seems that this version will be easier to open and use.
However, let's not forget about the price: a classic Alma PM is $1.530, while the Neo Alma is $2,370. Is the difference in leather worth it?
