While the difference in price is enticing for visitors abroad, the reasoning behind the dollar for dollar value isn't without controversy. Namely, because the difference can be blamed in part on the falling price of the pound in the aftermath of the Brexit crisis earlier this year. As the price of Britain's currency falls against the USD, a bag worth the same amount in pounds and dollars no longer translates evenly. Until a brand like Louis Vuitton raises the price in the U.K. to fit the adjusted values, you'll spend less in London than at home. So, the sooner you can head overseas for a little shopping, the better.
