LOUIS VUITTON NEW W BAG: MONOGRAM LOVE OR NOT

Louis Vuitton News

louis-vuitton-w-bag-1

Is it the W for Wow or the W for No? This year Louis Vuitton has launched a series of new bags adding the W bagin their monogram collection. The fall 2013 ad campaign is featured with the American Actress Michelle Williams.

Two essential ingredients are needed to craft the innovative W bag: monogram canvas and Cuir Orfévre calfskin. But note, the monograms are not loved by every Louis Vuitton fan. To adore this bag, you need to appreciate the style. In short, either love it or leave it.

It´s not a surprise that Louis Vuitton picked Michelle Williams to lead the fall ad campaign. Her tender look is the ideal match to the mature W bag. The beautiful red-lips and black nails are divine, creating a perfect balance the busy monogram classic and William´s edgy personality.

This bag comes in variation of styles including tri-colors. Most extraordinary is the shiny notable yellow and the deep red mixed with black/white dots on both sides. There are two sizes available, PM and GM. The price starts from $3,700 to $5,150.

LOUIS VUITTON CAPUCINES BAG: TWO FACES

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Capucines-Bag-Parnasséa-1

In our last post, we showed the fall ad campaign where Michelle Williams was carrying the brand-new W bag, with sophisticated print options and a bold colored V form crossing in the center. The public’s opinion we found were rather controversial. Monogram doesn’t seems to be everyone’s favorite choice. But no need to look back, here’s something to compensate. Introducing from the F/W 2013 Collection, the Louis Vuitton Capucines bag. LV has re-activated their minimalism inspiration.

First, the name itself is a ‘legend’. Capucines is taken from the street where Louis Vuitton started their first store back in 1854. The name of the street? Rue Des Capucines in Paris. There will be no disappointment when you fully understand how cleverly the design is created; the bag has actually two-faces and can be worn in two ways; the front flap can be hidden inside and it will show the LV initials. The initials are another creation that I love and admire, because it looks like it has been born out from the leather. The second face is when the flap is shown in the exterior, revealing its monogram flower, but also taking away a piece of the minimalistic style I love.

Only by zooming in the details will reveal its true beauty, like the jewel-like rings connecting to the semi-rigid handle, giving it another touch of trés chic appeal. And the specially tailored functional shape, cut-out from Taurillon leather, giving it a luxurious feel and roomy space.

Two sizes are available at your fingertips, in MM or GM. The price difference is minimum, for the MM $5,150 and the GM cost $5,600. Louis Vuitton Capucines’s high ticket is thanks to the expensive and smooth leather that has been integrated and the breath-taking clever design. And I love colors as much as I love candies. This bag is available in a many of shades; Pomme, Clementine, Taupe, Capucine, Orcre, Blue Canard, Quetsche, Blanc Casse, Black, Purple. Which one is your favorite?

It’s no surprise that this bag has been sold-out very quickly on Louis Vuitton e-store. I am sure the SA would love to show you a brand-new piece if you take your time to visit their boutique.

LOUIS VUITTON TROMPE-L’ŒIL POCHETTE WEEKEND BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Trompe-L'œil-Pochette-Weekend-Bag

End the weekday with the Louis Vuitton Pochette Weekend Bag. Be mesmerized with the latest art – the Trompe-L’oeil. This style was introduced for the Spring Summer 2018 Collection.

The Trompe-L’oeil is French for ‘deceive the eye’. It’s a form of art technique that changes realistic images to optical 3D illusion. So can you tell that the trunk detailing is fake or real?

The Design

The Trompe-L’oeil detailing evokes the iconic trunk – the gold hardware and the iconic S-lock are all 3D illusions. But there is one more thing that deceives the eyes, and that’s the shape. The depth of the bag can’t be seen on the front, but only on the side. It’s a flat pouch with chain.

The Pochette Weekend Bag is crafted in Damier or Monogram Canvas. It’s stylish and versatile as it can be transformed from a clutch to a shoulder bag. The chain of course, is removable.

Even tough the bag is small, it’s great for the moments when you want to carry as minimum as possible. The most interesting part is obvious the interior, but the exterior will get people’s attention because they will wonder whether the hardware are real or not.

The Interior

The bag features 1 flat pocket, 3 zipped pocket and 6 credit card slots. The interior is made with cowhide-leather lining. It opens and closes with magnetic closure.

The Prices And Sizes

Measuring 8.7’ x 5’ inches (L x H), priced at $1080 USD, $1230 CAD, €730 EUR, £680 GBP, $8850 HKD, $1340 AUD via Louis Vuitton boutiques.

LOUIS VUITTON CROISETTE BAG OR METIS POCHETTE BAG?

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-vuitton-croisette-bag

The Croisette Bag

Last year in May, Louis Vuitton introduced the Croisette Bag for the first time. It was an instant-hit and we received a lot of positive comments. The Croisette Bag is compact but has flawless functionalities. The design is chic with sophisticated detailing. It comes with a boho-chic tassel, but can be removed if you don’t like it. You can carry this bag for special events or match your casual chic outfit.

The Metis Pochette Bag

But then a competitor arrived in November 2016; it’s the Louis Vuitton Metis Pochette Bag. This bag is bigger, but has the same functionalities like the Croisette Bag – both come with handle for hand carry and leather strap for shoulder carry. The Metis Pochette Bag has a rectangle shape and has more pockets and compartments than the Croisette Bag. While the Croisette is better for casual days or the weekends, the Pochette Metis is a better choice as a workbag or for the busy woman who needs to carry a lot of essentials everyday.

The expansion of the Metis Pochette Bag line

If you look at what Louis Vuitton has done lately, the Metis Pochette bag has been extended from basic Monogram Canvas to Monogram Empreinte and other rare prints like the Monogram Reverse Canvas. The Monogram Empreinte is luxurious leather that changes the look to modern elegant.

The journey of the Croisette Bag was less exciting. Until today it’s only available in Damier Ebene Canvas or Damier Azur Canvas. So what does this mean? Is the Metis Pochette Bag more popular?

Which one is better?

I think each of them have their own style and use. The Croisette Bag is smaller in size and has less compartments but it’s nice to wear for the shopping days or at lunch meetings. The tassel is playful and will go well with simple casual outfit like jeans and tee’s

The Metis Pochette Bag is bigger and has lots of useful compartment. It’s ideal for work but can be carried in the weekends as well. It’s a practical bag especially when you need to carry a lot of essentials. The Metis Pochette in Reversed Monogram or Monogram Empreinte creates a different look for different occasions.

In terms of pricing, the Croisette Bag is slightly cheaper, it’s priced at $1590 USD in Canvas. The Pochette Metis Bag in canvas is priced at $1780 USD, but it’s also bigger.

In terms of sizes, the Croissette is measured 9.8′ x 6.7′ x 2.5′ inches (L x H x W) while the Pochette Metis is measured 9.8′ x 2.5′ x 3.5′ inches (L x H x W). So the length is the same, but the Pochette Metis is bigger in height and width because of the extra compartments.

What do you think? If you need to choose, which bag would you go for and why?

LOUIS VUITTON WIGHT BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Wight-Bag-2

You’re about to get a special treat because Louis Vuitton has just released a new handbag and it’s called the Wight Bag. This bag is from the Fall 2017 Collection and it’s a mix of classic with a modern touch. It’s certainly eye-catching and everyone will obvious know that it’s a Louis Vuiton creation, but there is a little twist.

The Wight Bag is made with round curvy shape and we love that. It’s feminine but bold and elegant. It’s perfect for casual days like when you’re having a cup of coffee with friends or you can also wear it for special occasions. Such a multiple use handbag is well worth your investment.

Covered with the iconic Damier Ebene Canvas, but the center is designed with a generous stripe of bright color for the easy elegance. The stripe is made from Cuir Taurillon leather and it looks luxurious especially with the signature button lock in golden hardware.

This bag comes with thin golden sliding chain for shoulder carry or cross body. Then it’s refined with signed eyelets, which embolden the casual chic look.

The interior is nice as well, when you open the flap, you will find 1 interior zipped pocket and 1 double smartphone pocket.

Choosing the right color is important; my personal preference is bright color like magnolia instead of black. Because it adds a personality to it and feels more attractive.

Measuring 9.3’ x 7.1’ x 3.3’ (L x H x W) inches, priced at $2260 USD, €1640 euro, £1530 GBP, $2920 AUD, $2790 CAD, $18700 HKD, ¥266760 JPY, ¥17300 CNY via Louis Vuitton boutiques.
