The Alma was originally custom designed for Coco Chanel herself. It was found in one of her private collections after she died. The bag is said to have been created in 1923, not 1930’s as is typically believed.

Because of this design put in place, if you ever loose a lock or key, any Louis Vuitton store has an exact replica which will work on your bag.
Louis Vuitton and his son George Vuitton were so sure of their lock, they challenged worldwide magician Houdini to a perform public escape. Sadly, Houdini didn’t agree.
