#9. LOUIS VUITTON X SUPREME | MONOGRAM MALLE COURRIER 90 TRUNK – $88,200
Louis Vuitton started the brand with trunks and has since become more famous for its purses.
When the Louis Vuitton X Supreme Collection was launched in 2017, it became a massive global phenomenon. Some of the inspirations behind the collection included big names including Andy Warhol and Jean Michel Basquiat.
The skateboard-centric brand Supreme selected a Supreme X as the centerpiece for their first brand collaboration. With the signatures of both brands blending on the Louis Vuitton X Supreme Malle Courrier 90, the item had to be a success.
The very expensive trunk features Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram leather in the vibrant red of Supreme. The Supreme logo is front and center. The trunk has a white interior lining and silver-colored metal details.
#8. Louis Vuitton Coquille d’Oeuf Minaudiere Bag – $101,000
Louis Vuitton items have a class of their own, exuding timeless elegance and of course a big price tag. The Coquille D’Oeuf Minaudiere is all of these and more. It was a part of the Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2012 women’s bag collection. At $101,000, this exclusive bag has an impressive price tag.
This beautiful softly shaded minaudiere has a unique design made with 12,500 eggshell fragments. The monogram mosaic on the oval-shaped case was made with over 600 hours of expert craftsmanship and extreme finesse. While it may seem a bit over the top, the Coquille D’Oeuf Minaudiere is a piece of art and completely unique.
#7. Kusama Pumpkin Jewel Bag – $133,000
The Kusama Pumpkin Jewel Bag is a beautiful and very expensive and exclusive bag by Louis Vuitton. Louis Vuitton and Japanese designer, Yayoi Kusama came together to create an exclusive collection of ready-to-wear, accessories, and handbags.
The collection was sold exclusively at Selfridges London. The price tag on the jewel bag, Kusama Pumpkin Minaudiere is an outstanding $133,430.
It has a very individualistic design in gold with Kusama’s iconic polka dot pattern flowing in parallel lines. The black insides and long golden chain give it a very sophisticated look. This bag is a jewel worthy of the huge price tag and its place at number 7 on our list.
#6. Urban Satchel – $150,000
The Urban Satchel is rather controversial for being very similar to the Tribute Patchwork bag. While it is made from the world’s finest Italian leather, the bag is an amalgamation of various items. These include an interesting mix of cigarettes, chewing gum wrappers, and recycled water bottles.
It was inspired by the desire to pay homage to the urban lifestyle and sustainability. The unique Urban Satchel gained the attention of icons including Victoria Beckham and Ashley Olsen, who wanted to buy it. Additionally, Ashley Olsen modeled the bag for ads in Vogue for a multi-million dollar deal.
The Urban Satchel is close to the top of our list for being the most highly-priced bag by Louis Vuitton at a whopping $150,000.
#5. LOUIS VUITTON TOILETRY BAG – € 144,640
Toiletry bags are an important part of women’s travels. They use the contents of their toiletry bags to stay fragrant and beautiful in all kinds of situations all across the world.
While toiletries were ignored by collectors earlier, they are now highly valued. One reason is the refinements that are part of a toiletry bag, particularly by a brand like Louis Vuitton. Luis Vuitton toiletry bags are made from very special materials, including solid silver, precious skin, ivory, crystal, velvet, silk.
This exceptional Louis Vuitton toiletry bag was made in 1936. It is made of reptile and ostrich skin, with tortoiseshell brushes. It was sold on November 4, 2016, at Gros & Delettrez in Drouot. This toiletry set has the world record for being the most expensive with the exception of trunks.
#4. Louis Vuitton Michael Clarke Luxury Trunk – $170,000
Michael Clarke, the captain of Australian cricket teamed up with Louis Vuitton to come up with the ultimate luxury cricket trunk. The outcome was a 140cm tall, sleek, graphite canvas case designed at the Loius Vuitton special order workshop in Paris. The proceeds of this trunk will go to the Sydney Children Hospital.
The opulence of this designer trunk is outstanding, with enough space for blazers, bats, baggy green, and the most unusual, a Bose sound system. After all, the designer is a sportsman.
Michael Clarke really enjoyed the process of designing and understanding how a trunk is made. Of course, it contrasts sharply with playing cricket.
#3. LOUIS VUITTON MAIL TRUNK 75 ALUMINUM – €180,895
This historical Louis Vuitton mail trunk is designed for fearless explorers. Louis Vuitton made only a few of these aluminum trunks in the year 1892.
In 2021, only two of these historic and unique trunks are known to exist. One of these is in Paris at the Louis Vuitton Foundation, while the other was part of the Handbags & Accessories auction by Christie’s on December 122018 in London. It sold for an outstanding amount.
There are several other explorer trunks by Louis Vuitton out there but none of these are in aluminum. When this trunk was made, aluminum was thought to be very precious in France. This trunk reflects that Louis Vuitton was an early adopter of new technology and materials.
Unfortunately, we do not know who was the initial owner of this trunk. There are some initials on the side of the trunk, but we cannot decipher them.
#2. Yayoi Kusama – Untitled (Louis Vuitton Trunk) – €239,400
This beautiful and completely unique Louis Vuitton trunk is part of the Yves Carcelle Collection.

Yves Carcelle was very fond of Asian contemporary art that he discovered in the 1980s during his visits to China.
This particular trunk was a gift by Yayoi Kusama for Yves Carcelle in 2012. Yayoi Kusama is an 82-year old Japanese artist known for placing her trademark polka dots on nearly everything, including tree trunks, cars, and even suitcases. The Yayoi Kusama (Untitled) is a very unique trunk that is covered in the artist’s magical polka dots, an emblematic art piece indeed.
