1970s vintage Louis Vuitton made exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue

I purchased this LV bag on ebay. It all looks real except for the leather trim. There isn't a LV tag inside or date code. It was listed as a vintage LV piece that was made for Saks and it has a Saks tag inside. From my research I know the French Company made LV purses between the 70s-80s and there are some things that would be different with the purses produced then.

LV bags from Saks NEW
by: acg

Here's the story. Before LV had free-standing stores in the US, they shipped the fabric to Saks who then made the bags. You'll notice that the Speedy was made in two pieces with a covered seam underneath- this means that the LV's in the fabric are right-side up on both sides of the bag. And the zipper pull had a piece that clicked into a piece attached to the bag. And there was a key. I have this bag and it is so well-made. I have replaced the zipper twice and I can't kill this bag.I love it. I also have several accessory pieces from that time-frame.
I hope this helps.
