Louis Vuitton builds plush trunks for the 2017 French Open Trophies

Louis Vuitton News


It’s time for the second grand slam of the year and we cannot wait to witness our beloved hotshots, (read Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Angelique Kerber) sweating it out for the legendary Roland-Garros’ trophies. Amidst the high-power struggles and some on and off court drama, one news that has managed to catch our eye is the unveiling of the novel LV trunks that will house the Grand 2017 French Open Trophies.


The French label has specially created two trophy trunks for the Suzanne-Lenglen Cup and the Musketeers’ Cup, each of which is awarded to the French Open Women’s and Men’s champions every year. Manufactured by Maison Mellerio, the oldest and probably the most revered Goldsmith in the world, the two trophies are a result of long hours of work and excellent craftsmanship. It’s no wonder then, that the prestigious cups have found a home as luxurious as the LV trunks.

Meticulously produced at the brand’s historic workshops in Asnières, the LV trunks boast of terracotta-colored interiors as well as the signature brass corners and lock. Adorned in the iconic Monogram canvas, one can also catch the quintessential ‘V’ mark on the front of them for an added dose of charm. It will certainly be exciting to know who bags these luxe LV trunks (and the French open trophies) this year.

The Louis Vuitton America Cup Challenger Playoffs Trophy and Trunk are here

Louis Vuitton News


Louis Vuitton has a long association with the America’s Cup that dates to the year 1983. The marquee is officially responsible for designing trophies for the coveted Match each year and in doing so it recently unveiled the brand-new Trophy and Trunk for the LV America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs, taking place from Sunday June 4th to Monday June 12th 2017 in Bermuda.


Five challengers including the likes of Land Rover BAR, Emirates Team New Zealand, Artemis Racing, SoftBank Team Japan and Groupama Team France will be battling it out against ORACLE TEAM USA (the ferocious defender and winner of the 34th America’s Cup), to ultimately win the 35th series of the America’s Cup. It is no small task to emerge victorious in a battle so grand, and thus LV has commissioned a new trophy and trunk to mark the supreme achievement. Crafted in 10kg of sterling silver, the new trophy stands tall in its 70-cm frame and is polished and satin-finished to perfection. It also dons the iconic Gaston ‘V’ mark and is an ultimate ode to the heritage and rich standing of the America’s Cup.

A Monogram trunk created especially for the Challenger’s Trophy also carries the famous Gaston ‘V’ in red on its front along with a classic blue microfiber interior and a bunch of other meticulous details. The superior Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs trophy will be awarded to the team that emerges victorious on June 11th or 12th on the Great Sound. We cannot seem to hold our excitement in! Can you?

LOUIS VUITTON CRUISE 2018 RUNWAY BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Cruise-2018-Runway-Bag-Collection

Straight out of the Miho Museum outside the city of Kyoto, Japan, Nicolas Ghesquiere’s genius floated through the air with his latest Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection. The collection is nothing but a riveting homage to Japanese culture with which Ghesquiere has fell in love with. Others described it as his open love letter to Japan and this is more than evident with what we’ve seen in the runway.

Featuring unique designs that are suffused and imbued with Japan’s trademarks such as the colorful dresses of kabukis and geishas, the tenacious lifestyle of the samurais, and the cutesy and quirky style of the Kawaii, the bag collection is indeed a pleasant surprise to many. It is in fact a collaboration between Nicolas Ghesquire and Kansai Yamamoto, a world-renowned Japanese designer.

You can see that there are Louis Vuitton’s classics and cult favorites gracing the collection. The Petite Malle, the Speedy and a new flap bag all in Monogram Canvas and Monogram reverse prints are unstoppable with their refined grace, injected with quirky and offbeat designs such as a kabuki taking a peek with her curious eyes, traditional prints of fishermen, and Samurai armors to name a few.

We are also seeing a new bucket bag, which is inspired by traditional Japanese lanterns and several small hot box bags in different sizes, prints, and finish. What could we say? This collection is entirely an amalgam of all things quirky and fun.

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.
