Breaking news, my Sales Associate at Louis Vuitton informed me that YES, Louis Vuitton Neverfull in canvas material is being discontinued in stores and will have to join a waitlist in order to purchase it. The Louis Vuitton Neverfull is still being sold online through their website, but once this news broke, it has been sold out online.
Why is the LV Neverfull in Canvas material being discontinued?
In my opinion, there are 3 main reasons why Louis Vuitton decided to discontinue the LV Neverfull in canvas material in stores and have people go on a waitlist if they are wanting to purchase it.
The first reason is that the Louis Vuitton Neverfull in Canvas material has become over saturated. This is one of the most popular bags LV sells, and because of that you also see a rise in dupes. LV is trying to control the supply and make it more desirable to purchase a bag.
By controlling the supply and limited who can purchase the Louis Vuitton Neverfull in Canvas inadvertently LV is increasing the demand of the Canvas Neverfull. When news first broke that LV was implementing this, people flocked to the stores to try to get their hands on this iconic bag before they had to join a waitlist. In addition to people flocking to the stores, the LV website everywhere worldwide sold out extremely quickly.
The final reason is Louis Vuitton is pivoting their strategy to focus on leather handbags and more expensive products. LV bags in canvas materials are notorious for being the cheapest products on the websites and if they switch their focus to leather products they will elevate their luxury status and add more profit to their bottom line.
