Louis Vuitton has some beloved “big hit” bags like the Neverfull tote, Speedy Bag, Alma bag, and a few other honorable mentions that could easily make the “it” bag list. However, most of their largely successful and more popular styles are older creations. Newer LV bags like the Capucines, Petite Malle, and City Steamer are beautifully designed and well-received, but they still haven’t truly crossed the bridge of becoming “it’ bags and classics yet. The brand’s newest creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, has produced many stunning bags over the past couple of years, and one in particular is bound to take off soon. Louis Vuitton seems to be setting the stage for their next big star: The Louis Vuitton City Cruiser Bag.

A few months ago, we saw a real-life glimpse of the City Cruiser Bag after the Fall 2016 runway show. Celebrities like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift were spotted with the bag, but very little details were made public about the new silhouette at the time. Designer brands use many different tactics like celebrity endorsements and big campaigns to bring attention to bags that they want to blow up in popularity. For example, Prada launched a huge marketing and merchandising plan to build hype around the Prada Inside Bag. Likewise, Louis Vuitton was probably relying on the help of big names like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift to peak curiosity about this interesting, new LV creation. Now, the City Cruiser bag is available in Louis Vuitton boutiques and PurseBop is here to share a few details!

Features

The City Cruiser Bag is inspired by Louis Vuitton’s original Cruiser Luggage Bag. At first glance, the City Cruiser Bag kind of looks like a makeup train case or mini travel bag. The “suitcase look” gives the bag a sporty, casual element, but it is still very sleek and elegant.

In terms of shape, the City Cruiser has an interesting silhouette that you might need to take a second to fully understand before you decide whether you like it or not. Overall, the City Cruiser has a lot of little parts, but they are all functional and help bring the bag’s look together. The City Cruiser has a structured, rectangular body with two top handles. It can remain closed and secured by fastening the gathered strap closure and zipper, or it can be completely opened and turned into a large capacity tote. Louis Vuitton describes the City Cruiser as “the perfect daily companion, it is remarkably versatile, and can be used as an overnight bag.”

The bag also features a zipper pocket on the outside, internal pockets, and a detachable strap for shoulder or crossbody wear.

It’s never all that hard to figure out which new bags Louis Vuitton is betting on. The massive French brand is singularly powerful within the luxury industry, and that means it has plenty of famous friends to rely on when it comes for drumming up pre-release interest in a new design. When the Louis Vuitton City Cruiser Bag appeared on the arms of paparazzi magnets like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift almost immediately after the brand’s Fall 2016 show, we knew it was the bag to watch. Now, it’s made its way into boutiques for the first time.

In an accessories market where it seems like every new bag feels frustratingly familiar, Louis Vuitton took this opportunity to play directly to its own history instead of current trends. The bag’s shape and structure are based of the long-running Louis Vuitton Cruiser luggage design, and the shrunken handbag version does indeed look like a little suitcase.

In standalone product images, the bag looks a little over-complicated; two top handles, a top strap (which…appears to be useless?) and longer, removable shoulder strap are a lot going on for a relatively small bag. That’s one of the reasons that celebrity gifting is such a popular tactic–giving shoppers a chance to see a bag in action is often more useful than a flat stock image, and on Taylor and Selena, the City Cruiser feels a lot less busy. (They both appear to have removed the long shoulder strap, which definitely helps if that’s not your bag-carrying preference.)

Right now, the only two options available are the PM version of the bag in mostly monogram canvas. The option with leather trim, which is what you see on Taylor and Selena above, is priced at $3,650, while the version with contrasting monogram trim will set you back $3,400. Both are available via the brand’s website and boutiques.

So now, we want to hear from you: are you digging this latest Louis Vuitton debut? I’m more into it than I expected to be, at least because it feels like its own idea instead of piggybacking off another brand’s success. Too many very high-end designers are guilty of that (occasionally Louis Vuitton among them), and I’d always rather see a brand venture something new than stick with what’s already working for everyone else.
