Handbags

The Louis Vuitton’s Airy V Pochette Louise Bag is the perfect feminine bag companion! For LV lovers out there, the Louise Bag is not a new bag and in fact it has been around for quite some time. This time around, the French designer house reinvented and gave it a classic twist by adding an Airy V embossed finishing, reminding V of Vuitton.

Ever wonder how they were able to make this design? Well, the secret was laid open. Louis Vuitton made use of smooth leather that has been embossed with a thin foam backing, thus ensuring a light padded result. Despite its size, women shouldn’t feel intimidated at all as it still offers a great capacity of storage while its delicate and striking chain allows an elegant shoulder carry.

Made from embossed calfskin, it features a tone-on-tone edge dyeing, and microfiber lining. Aesthetic wise, it also has a signature LV clasp and gold-like chain for shoulder carry while its interior offers an inside zipped pocket and inside flat pocket.

Measuring 9.1” x 6.3” x 1.6” (L x H x W) inches and is priced $2880 USD, €2000 euro, £1860 GBP, $23800 HKD, $3550 AUD, ¥324000 JPY via Louis Vuitton e-store or boutiques.

Louis-Vuitton-Kimono-Tote-Bag-Red

Last week, we gave an introduction about the Louis Vuitton Kimono Tote Bag. This is a new type of handbag designed for the Spring Summer 2015 Collection.

It’s alluring because of the two traditions combined in one – the V-cross motif and the Japanese Robe.

The V-signature is inspired by the Classic Advertisement of 1965, on the ad it was written: ‘Volez Voguez, Voyagez avec des Valises Louis Vuitton’. And if you’ve been following us recently, you couldn’t have missed the importance of the V symbol embellished on new the new handbags since Nicolas Ghesquiere took over the giant ship.

The other tradition is the Japanese Robe – the tote bag is partly designed in Monogram Canvas and the other half in fine calf leather. The Calf leather is available in different colors like black, red or purple.

The Louis Vuitton Kimono Tote Bag is both roomy and remarkably light, it’s a pleasure to carry. It features long Toron leather handles, 1 central zipped compartment and 4 bottom studs.

The brand’s signature is written on the front of the bag. Measuring 17.3’ x 15.7’ x 5.9’ (L x H x W) inches, priced at $3250 USD, €2280 euro via Louis Vuitton boutique.

LOUIS VUITTON CAPUCINES BB BAG

Handbags


Louis-vuitton-capucines-tote-bb-1

In the name of mini bags, we are here to proudly announce, the super-cute Louis Vuitton Capucines BB tote.

Apparently it’s too small to be sold on the internet as you can only order by visiting your local boutique. But that’s okay, I need to do some exercises anyway and on my journey to the store, I can put my sunglasses on and enjoy some sunlight.

First some facts; the Louis Vuitton Capucines Tote was first introduced, it was featured in the ad campaign with Michelle Williams. The monogram version was a no-no for most of us, we wanted to see more than that. So LV decided to bring some single colors to the party and they are damn gorgeous.

The Louis Vuitton Capucines tote is a legendary bag, the name itself is inspired by the street where Louis Vuitton started their first store in the year 1854. The exact street was Rue Des Capucines in Paris. This tote is also called a two-face bag, because you can either flip the flap on the inside to enjoy the bold colored LV initial crossing in the center, which I belief is more elegant and chic, or you can move it to the outside to reveal its monogram flower.

Now finally in the BB size, the shorty fashionista can add another classic to their wardrobe. It’s finished with shiny silver palladium accents, the mini size also comes with a removable long shoulder strap for the casual shoulder or cross-body wear.

Measuring 7.9 x 10.6 x 3.5 inches (W x H x D), crafted from full-grain Taurillon leather. The interior is enriched with 1 flat pocket, 1 zipped pocket and 2 large compartments open it with a snap hook closure. At Louis Vuitton boutique or e-store for $4,400 USD / €2990 euro / £2480 GBP.

Here’s another one to consider – black, pink and beige. The handle is painted in black, the body is colored soft-pink and the flap is beige. When you put the flap on the front, the beauty of the mixed colors reveals itself. And what does it remind you of?

Strawberry ice cream with whipped cream and chocolate stick on the top.

Chances are you're reading this on your iPhone. And chances are, your iPhone is often in your hand. For better or for worse (probably for worse) our phones have become a nearly-permanent appendage, in our hands at all times, which is something Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquière considered when designing his spring/summer 2017 collection, presented today at the Place Vendôme in Paris. Why go to the trouble of getting all dressed up and ignore your iPhone?

Et voila, Ghesquière showed iPhone cases (for the 6, 6 plus, and hopefully the 7 and 7 plus) on the runway, done in hardware that resembles the trunk-inspired "Petite Malle" bags. Each case also comes with AirPod covers as well. At the re-see following the show, there was a crowd of people five-deep surrounding the iPhone cases. No word yet on how much they will cost but I have a hunch these are going to sell fast.

Louis Vuitton Monogram World Tour

Handbags

On his many travels, Gaston-Louis Vuitton used to collect hotel and airline stickers, and always took a fascination to the labels on luggages and trunks he saw, as he felt it was telling of the owner and the adventures they had been on. It was this spirit of wanderlust that was the main inspiration behind the new Louis Vuitton Monogram World Tour Collection.

Creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere has transposed this tradition of travel stickers on the classic Louis Vuitton Monogram icons, from its classic city bag Speedy to the LV55 watch and the Pégase suitcase. The stickers feature dynamic cosmopolitan cities like Tokyo, Paris and Milan, or paintings from the Hyper Realistic Movement. This collection is a fun, playful take on the classic Monogram series and a great way to pay homage to the design house’s long-standing association with travel. Head up to our gallery to check out the new collection up close!

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

You’ve already seen the first few pieces from this collection, now see the rest from Louis Vuitton’s Monogram World Tour collection. Yes, that’s the official name of this festive range of bags and SLGs, inspired by founder Gaston Louis Vuitton’s love of hotel and airline stickers which he collected whilst on his own travels. You’ll be familiar with the bags and SLGs too, all icons in their own right that Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière has chosen for this animated and fun line that’s just perfect for Christmas.

Now comes the next most important question. How much? Well, I’ve got all the prices here for you, so all you really need to do is to decide if the recipient has been naughty, or nice. And if anyone’s been wondering, I’ve been really nice all year. So there.

First up (from left to right), we’ve got the Monogram World Tour Zippy Wallet (SGD1230), then the Monogram World Tour Pochette Felicie(SGD1430) that actually comes with 2 extra SLGs on the inside that can be used together or separate from the bag, one a zip pouch, another a flat pocket card case that comes with 8 credit card slots. Last but not least, there’s the Monogram World Tour Sarah Wallet (SGD1100), which happens to be a favourite amongst many, by the way.

Next we’ve got the ‘big guns’, starting with the Monogram World Tour Speedy30 Bandouliere (SGD2330), the Monogram World Tour Neverfull MM(SGD2110) which incidentally comes with a black trim (very Monogram Macassar, if you ask me), with the Monogram World Tour Alma BB(SGD2010) rounding up the montage.

Finally, another look at some of the icons given the Monogram World Tourtreatment, because everything looks better on pink, right? Besides the 6 I’ve just featured, other bags that you’ll find ‘stickered’ include theKeepall50 Bandouliere (SGD3100) with vachetta or black trim, the Toiletry Pouch26 (SGD645), the Nano Speedy (SGD1510), as well as other accessories like scarves and key rings to complete the look.


Louis Vuitton has once again featured funky stickers on their iconic handbags for their Fall/Winter 2016 Collection. The World Tour Stickers presents a variety of patches like Louis Vuitton logo, cars, and flamingos. These stickers can be seen on Louis Vuitton’s famous handbags. These includes City Streamer in Veau Satin leather, Speedy, Petite Malle and Twist in Epi Leather, all in black color. It will also be available in Monogram Canvas bags including Speedy, Alma, Neverfull, Petite Malle, Palm Springs Mini Backpack as well as Travel bags and Small Leather Goods.
