Louis Vuitton Fall Line

Louis Vuitton never ceases to amaze me. With their high end fashion and exquisite taste theLouis Vuitton Fall Fashion line would make any girl or guy envious. When you think of LV, you think of the classic monogram canvas, the dark brown leather background with the LV gold print.

The Fall line focuses on the famous LV pattern with some new and intriguing accessories. What I noticed and love was the emphasis on small hand totes, rather than over-the-shoulder bags. Although big bags are practical, a small handbag draws focus to the outfit and the girl!

What is a Patina?

Handbags

Many Louis Vuitton bag fanatics are unaware about the word Patina. Is it a new bag or is it a new canvas pattern? Neither, Patina is a phenomenon that occurs in the vachetta or untreated cowhide leather on your bag. When the leather is new, the color is very pale beige. Over years of use, it darkens to its full patina in various stages, to deep honey brown. which is it’s final dark patinated color. Patination is caused by oxidation, sunlight, weather, oil in your hands and dirt. If you happen to have a bag that is 5 to 6+ years old, the vachetta would definitely darken. It’s something you can’t avoid. Every Louis Vuitton bag with a vachetta will surely patina, all we have to do is to take care of the leather so that it would have a clean, even, and gorgeous patina.

Advantages of a Patinated Bag
A Patinated bag also has some perks. The first and the most important, no one will dare accuse your bag as counterfiet. A patinated bag is a proof that your bag is geniuine. But now, the counterfieters are becoming more skilled, they can make a fake bag that can also undergo patination.

There are certain bags that looks good when it’s vachetta has patina. For example, if your bag is in Monogram Canvas, the patina will complement the color of the canvas and gives it a vintage feel. The vachetta will also look and feel smooth. But if your bag is Damier Azur, unfortunately, it doesn’t look that beautiful. Majority of the Damier Azur owners don’t like their bags to patina and are finding ways to prevent or slow down the process.

Candidates for Patination

Here’s a list of Louis Vuitton bags that are candidates for patination:

  • All bags in Monogram Canvas
  • All Damier Azure bags
  • Vernis Bellevue
  • Vernis Roxbury Drive
  • Vernis Reade
  • Vernis Brentwood
  • Vernis Summit Drive
  • Vernis Rosewood
  • Vernis Bedford
  • Denim Baggy
  • Denim Mini Pleaty
  • Denim Pleaty
  • Denim Speedy
  • Denim Sac a Dos
  • All Monogram Multicolore bags
  • All Monogram Rubis bags
  • Watercolor Speedy
  • Watercolor Papillon

To sum it up, all bags with vachetta will patina.

An Obsessive Compulsive’s Guide to a Gorgeous Patina
A perfect patina is color honey. It’s color tone is even on all sides and there are no stains, watermarks, and scratches. Sounds heavenly but the process in having a gorgeous patina is ridiculously extreme and you might not survive through the process.

  1. After you arrive home from purchasing your bag at the Louis Vuitton boutique, sanitize your hands and/or wear clean surgical gloves to prevent dirt from transferring from your hands to the vachetta.
  2. Place your bag at a carefully selected spot in your home wherin no sunlight will hit the bag. This will ensure your bag will not patina prematurely.
  3. After months of oxidizing your bag (leaving it in the “carefuly selected spot”), the vachetta’s color will darken a bit.
  4. The bag is now ready to tan. Move the bag in a spot where there is sunlight (not direct), remember to sanitize your hands and/or wear surgical gloves. Leave the bag there for a few months, turning the purse once in a while to have even exposure to the sunlight. After that, the vachetta will be browner that it was before.
  5. Continue this process for 5 to 10 years. Then you will have a gorgeous even patina.

Conclusion
That guide was absolutely ridiculous. No one can ever do that. I suggest that always do the basic care formula; avoid water, clean the vachetta using baby wipes, and love. The vachetta won’t always look perfect. One way or another, it will have stains and other unneccessary marks but always remember, the stains are the evidence that your bag has gained lots of experience and that’s the real beauty of it. Viva la Patina!

Louis Vuitton Damier Sequin Speedy Bag - Navy

For per-fall 2013, that willingness to play on classics has yielded the Louis Vuitton Speedy Damier Paillettes. The bag comes in a black-and-brown version, below, that mimics the traditional Damier Ebene fabric, but I’m feeling particular partial to the navy embellishment that you see above. Navy is going to be a huge trend for fall, the navy leather handles and clochette are a nice touch, and the big advantage Damier is that the trim isn’t vachetta and won’t wear as obviously as it does on the monogram bags.
