Louis Vuitton F/W16 Monogram Canvas Supple Rigid Bag

Louis Vuitton News

The name is in itself an oxymoron. How is a bag possibly supple and rigid all at once? Well, anything’s possible as far as Louis Vuitton is concerned, and with their F/W16Monogram Canvas Supple Rigid Bag, it’s truly both hard and soft at the same time.

Well I don’t have the full info on this curious beauty just yet, this is what I know. Made to look like a trunk which of course Louis Vuitton is perhaps best-known for, it’s hard on top (where the trunk’s lid and handle is) and soft on the bottom (where you see the ‘soft’ Monogram Canvas). Priced at SGD7500, you could say this is another unique addition to the French luxury house after the successful launch of the Petite Malle some seasons back.

And while I don’t have the full info on this piece (or other pieces that will available in this shape but in different finishes), here’s a close-up of the Supple Rigid Bag’s gorgeous lock situation. More updates, to come.

Thieves Swipe Worth of Handbags from Louis Vuitton Store in Brazil

Louis Vuitton News

Louis Vuitton debuted an expansive Cruise 2017 collection in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, earlier this week, but news out of the South American country wasn’t all positive for the French luxury brand. According to theNew York Times, the Vuitton store in Rio’s upscale Ipanema neighborhood was robbed Tuesday morning, only two days after the attention-grabbing show.

Reports indicate the thieves made off with over $140,000 in handbags in the early morning hours; no products from other categories were mentioned. For reference, that’s about 36 of the brand’s popular City Steamer bags, which retail at $3,850 for the medium size is smooth leather.

Brazilian authorities did not stipulate which bags were taken, but Vuitton had released a handful of Cruise 2017 bags for general purchase immediately after the show on Saturday. The bags are only available online in the US, but Vanessa Friedman of the NYT speculates that local excitement and attention over the show may have influenced the robbers, and the occasion certainly could have made a timely hit more attractive.

If you see any Louis Vuitton bag available from Brazilian sellers with prices that seem too good to be true, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

It Bag Alert! Reese Witherspooon Steps Out With the Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton News

If you're wondering what this Fall's It bag is going to be, then here's your answer, courtesy of Louis Vuitton and Reese Witherspoon. The star — who has made a name for herself carrying the hottest bags on the market (remember how she was one of the first to carry the Fendi 2jours tote?) — was spotted yesterday out in LA with the Louis Vuitton W, which she styled with a light-blue sweater, skinny jeans, and leopard-print Louboutins.

If the leather and coated canvas carryall looks familiar to you, then that's because you've already seen it starring alongside Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton's stunning Fall 2013 campaign, where it made its official debut with Vuitton's other headline Fall bag, the Capucine. If its sleek silhouette, classic monogram detailing, and chic celebrity sighting are any indication, then it's clear this will be the hottest accessory of the Fall.

Louis Vuitton News

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. From Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2017 collection comes a selection of bags you can buy now, which amongst other pieces, includes this pair of Petite Malle bags that are love, love, love. More a statement piece than anything else because we all know how much they can actually hold, there’s no denying their allure. Their adorable size and shape inspired by the French luxury house’s trunk has also helped them become one of Louis Vuitton’s most iconic hits since Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière took over.

Priced at EUR3900 each (or USD5750 depending where in the world you are), there are no updates as to how much it will cost in Singapore for these puppies that measure 18 cm by 12 cm. Made of Epi leather that’s then embossed, you’ll find gold-tone hardware on the green and beige Tropical, while the Tropical Spike (the one that comes with mainly blue stripes) will come with silver-tone hardware.

Love the colours but want a bag that’s erm, more practical? Well you can check out these Twist MM bags then, priced at EUR2850 and USD4100 respectively for those based in Europe and the US respectively. Again no word yet on how they will be priced in Singapore, but if you’re keen enough, you could always make a trip down to any LV store here and I’m pretty sure you’ll get the info you require almost immediately.

Louis Vuitton Speedy 101

Louis Vuitton News

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

One of Louis Vuitton’s most endearing bag icons, the Monogram Canvas Speedy was the bag everyone wanted when I first started blogging back in 2007 (has it been that long?). I remember receiving loads of emails asking about the Speedy, from the various sizes available to how much it cost. And if I remember correctly, they only had the Speedy back then in either Monogram Canvas or Damier Ebene (Damier Azur hadn’t even come out yet). They didn’t have shoulder slings either (yes, now they do), nor could they have been customised, which is what you can do now if you so choose too.

In other words, because it’s been so, so long since I did anything on the classic Speedy, consider this post your refresher.

Still available in the same 4 sizes they’ve always had, they are classified by length of the bag, so a Speedy25 for example, measures around 25 cm across. There’s a Speedy30, a Speedy35 and a Speedy40 as well, which is the biggest in the Speedy family. Any bigger and it would be considered a Keepall, which starts at 45 (Keepall45) all the way to a 60, but that’s a post for another day.

Made almost entirely of coated-canvas with a smidgen of leather where you find its handles, the tab and the trim, it’s also extremely lightweight, virtually indestructible, ages well over time (especially if you are into the whole patina thing on the leather handles) and of course, affordable. Yes, that’s because it is mostly canvas after all, but it is also one of the few designer bags you’ll find in the market today under theSGD1400 mark.

Yes, it’s time for the prices. The Speedy25 is just SGD1300, the Speedy30 is SGD1330. Then we have the Speedy35 at SGD1360 and finally the Speedy40? Just SGD1390. Affordable, right?

And as perfect as the Speedy was, the fans wanted more. They wanted it to come with a shoulder sling as well, and if I’m not wrong, Louis Vuitton launched that in 2011. Known as the Speedy Bandouliere, it also came in the same 4 sizes and are currently priced SGD1880, SGD1910, SGD1940, SGD1970 respectively. Yes, it costs a tad more, but you’re paying for the shoulder sling made entirely of leather, and because it’s even more functional now, it’s ok, right?

After that (or was it before that), the Damier Azur Speedy was launched, which also means that as of today, you can choose from 3 different colours/patterns (Monogram Canvas, Damier Azur and Damier Ebene), 4 sizes and the option of having it with sling or not. Which is definitely more options than what we had back in 2007.

Other updates? The Mini Lin Speedy (fabric instead of canvas) has since been discontinued, there’s now a Speedy Nano (tiny tiny tiny Speedy with a sling) and of course, Mon Monogram, which allows you to customise your Speedy with your own choice of initials and stripes before it is made. There are also seasonal Speedyofferings, like one shown above made specially for S/S16. Not exactly a fan of this one, but since everyone here knows what a Speedy looks like anyway, you know what I mean.

All of this talk of the Speedy is making me nostalgic. I even remember back in the day when I would follow my girlfriend (and by girlfriend I mean a girl who is a friend) to Louis Vuitton countless times before she decided to get one, a Speedy30. I even toyed with the idea of getting a Speedy40 for myself, which I’ve seen some guys rock rather effortlessly. Which brings me to this question. Do any of you out there still use yours? Or are thinking of getting one anytime soon?
