LOUIS VUITTON INSOLITE ORGANISER WALLET

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Insolite-Organiser

Let’s say you start looking for a small wallet (or what they call compact wallet). Then you figure out that it’s too small, so you upgrade your choice from small to medium-sized. But then you find the medium size too small as well and you’re looking for something with more pockets. Well, if the medium or large wallet doesn’t suit your taste, then it’s time to find an organizer, which can function like a wallet btw.

Now meet the gorgeous Louis Vuitton Insolite Organiser Wallet.

The Design

The outside is as beautiful as the inside. Designed in Monogram Canvas, which is the house’s signature print. Nowadays, everyone recognizes that this print is from Louis Vuitton, so this wallet is an automatic brag machine anyway.

The top exposes the interior’s double zip, which looks like two beautiful wings. The side also exposes the interior’s zip. The front features a zip pocket, which is made to store your important essentials. This pocket is easy to reach and you will have instant-access.

And while the exterior is stunning, this organizer is all about the interior. Let’s talk about that.

The Interior

Open the wallet to get into the interior. Now you will find numerous of pockets to organize your essentials. This organizer is comparable to a multi-purpose wallet. You can stock credit cards, essential documents, coins and even your plane tickets inside.

Now what kind of pockets are designed inside? 12 credit card slots and 1 ID card compartment. There are 2 interior zipped pocket as well as 2 large compartments for papers, note and receipts (these two pockets are awesome, because you can store your receipts when travelling abroad. The receipts can be safely stored until you go apply for tax-refund). There is also one compartment for plane or train tickets and one penholder. The interior is made with supple leather lining to maximize the luxury appeal.

The Sizes And Prices

LOUIS VUITTON MAHINA ASTERIA BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Mahina-Asteria-Bag-3

The new Mahina print has been introduced not long ago. You can say that it’s a new addition to the signature Monogram Family. The Mahina print is more modern, brighter and colorful, it has already been embellished on the SevresBabylone and Girolate Bags.

For the Fall Winter 2017 Collection, Louis Vuitton announces the release of the Asteria Bag. The name Asteria is awesome because it means ‘star’ in Latin, which matches perfectly to the eye-catching design of this bag.

The Design

Louis-Vuitton-Mahina-Asteria-Bag-5

The Asteria Bag feels supple but also strong and durable. It’s made in calf leather, which feels smooth and luxurious. The overall look is quite complicated because the Mahina Print is actually a perforated version of the Monogram. Each symbol on the print is crafted with little holes.

Then the zip is purposely made very long. Both ends are hanging on the sides, but can be fixed by slipping inside the side-leather. The top is crafted with double zipper (also with long leather straps for the ultimate chic’ness) and the center features the iconic LV lock. And of course, a key bell is included and hanging on the side handle. And talking about the handles, it’s refined with braided work.

This bag looks timeless and different. The leather, the print and the shape make it eye-catching and certainly attention-grabbing. This bag is made to flaunt, but it’s also designed to differentiate yourself from the crowd.

The Interior

Louis-Vuitton-Mahina-Asteria-Bag-2

This bag is made to be an everyday bag and the interior is quite roomy. You will find one large compartment inside as well as flat pocket. You can compare it like the Speedy Bag.

The Sizes And Prices

Measuring 14.1’ x 8.6’ x 7.9’ (L x H x W) inches, priced at €3000 euro, £2800 GBP, $34000 HKD, ¥31500 CNY, $5350 AUD, ¥482760 JPY via Louis Vuitton boutiques.

To fête the newly renovated Louis Vuitton in SoHo, the brand’s artisans created an exclusive capsule collection of handbags, “Capucine Skyline.” The handbag, which was just revealed at the SoHo store on December 15th, shows off the stunning New York City skyline with hand painted buildings and embroidery, emoting Louis Vuitton’s connection to the city. So what exactly does it take to make such a stunning, exclusive, limited-edition bag like the Capucine Skyline? A steady hand and 20/20 vision for starters.

Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 ‘Race’ Speedy30 Bandouliere

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

If you’ve walked into any Louis Vuitton boutique lately, you would already have seen the new Cruise 2017 bags that have started arriving on our shores. And one of the standout pieces from this collection would be the ‘Race’ Speedy30 Bandouliere, also known as Nicolas Ghesquière’s tribute to the Brazilian life, where the runway presentation was shown back in the month of May in Rio. Made with a mish-mash of LV’s best known icons, there’s a bit of Monogram Reverse, a bit of Epi and a bit ofDamier, all held together with the word Vuitton splashed across the front of the bag.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON
Then there’s this, the other striking colour combination that this seasonal Speedy30 Bandouliere comes in. Finished with a patch pocket on the side (much like the ones the vintage Epi Speedy bags used to have) and a shoulder sling that’s also removable, I do hope this means that Louis Vuitton will start having more fun and seasonal Speedy bags again, just like the ones Marc Jacobs always had whenever he launched a new collection. Priced at SGD3400, it’s not exactly cheap but with such a mix of colours and materials (did I also mention this is limited edition?), I didn’t really expect it to cost any less.

INSIDE THE PURSEFORUM: A SAFE HAVEN FOR SHOWING OFF $50,000 HANDBAGS & Louis Vuitton Purchases Shared By Our PurseForum Members

Louis Vuitton News


We can't think of a better way to start a new month than with a new bag, and our PurseForummembers certainly agree. As we continue our exploration over on the PurseForum, our members revealed a bevy of gorgeous new bags in the super-popular Louis Vuitton subforum.

Get ready to live vicariously through our Forum members because there's an abundance of Louis Vuitton Neverfull totes to admire, Christmas Illustration prints to marvel at, and, of course, plenty of monogram! Our tPFers were even lucky enough to snatch up some vintage finds, like the Louis Vuitton Epi Figue Trèsor Coffret and the Louis Vuitton Monogram Stephen Sprouse Roses print. Our forum members were also the first to get their hands on the brand's new World Tour collection, which features patches from creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere's travels atop the classic monogram print.

Larkie D., a 40-something techology consultant based in Los Angeles, has been collecting Chanel ready-to-wear since the '90s. (Twenty years later, her uniform is still a pair of jeans paired with one of the French fashion house’s cropped tweed jackets.) A few years into building her clothing collection, she moved onto the handbags. Today, Larkie -- who asked that we not reveal her last name -- owns 20 to 30 Chanel bags at "any given time," many of which are crafted from exotic skins with prices hovering in the $30,000 range. Over the past decade, she’s certainly spent close to a million dollars on handbags -- although the number is hard to pin down exactly, since Larkie began reselling many of her Chanel bags a few years ago.

"I realized that I only really like one or two of the styles -- the classic flap bag in exotic skins," she says. Unfortunately, many of the bags she has resold have not gone for as much as she paid. "They don’t have a great resale value, especially when it comes to exotics," she says. "If you pay $50,000 for a jumbo flap bag in alligator, you might not be able to get more than somewhere in the mid-twenties for it. It’s not like an Hermès."

Which may be one reason that, over the past couple of years, Larkie -- who writes the blog Larkie at Large -- has “moved on to the orange side.” She currently owns "four or five" Hermès bags, including a Birkin and a few Kellys, one of which is in crocodile. "As much as I love Chanel, once you touch and hold an Hermès exotic skin bag in your arms, it’s hard not to cross over," she says. "My holy grail is a Kelly in fuchsia ostrich or alligator. That would be a miracle."

Larkie’s handbag collection may sound rarefied, but she's not alone. Since 2006, she’s been visiting the PurseForum, an online community dedicated to handbag lovers. "I was trying to authenticate a Chanel bag, and I stumbled upon it," she says. "Then I just got sucked in."

In a time when forums are verging on archaic, the PurseForum has more than 400,000 registered members and over 700,000 threads. The site, which also includes a well-read blog, receives three million visits a month, resulting in an average 25 million page views.

"We have really passionate people who have been there for a very long time," says Meaghan Mahoney Dusil, who co-founded the site in 2004 with then-boyfriend Vlad Dusil while they were students at Ohio University. The couple met on the swim team. When Meaghan, better known as "Megs," was injured and could no longer compete, Vlad thought it might be fun if she started a blog about handbags. (At the time, she had two designer bags: a Prada nylon messenger and a classic Coach style.) In January 2005, she published her first post. A few months in, PurseBlog was gaining traction -- and tons of comments. So the couple decided to build a forum in the spirit of The Fashion Spot, but more about shopping, less about the industry.

From the beginning, the Dusils had strict rules about what could and couldn’t be discussed on PurseForum. There would be no trolling, no talk of politics or religion. The result was a mostly positive mix of threads: there were plenty about authentication, sourcing and showing off your latest purchases via photos. Others were simply odes to specific brands. Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Hermès have remained the most talked about luxury brands over the years, but Céline is a current hot topic. Coach remains popular amongst the contemporary labels, and so does Rebecca Minkoff. (Minkoff has told me in the past that she actually spent a lot of time on the PurseForum in the early years of her brand, responding to customer feedback.) The threads reach far beyond handbags, though, spanning the entire fashion/shopping spectrum. There are shoe threads, jewelry threads, clothing threads. Even threads dedicated to celebrity fashion.

A photo from Anh Vu Yu's closet, which she posted on the PurseForum.

To an outsider, the thing that is most striking about the PurseForum is the amount of wealth that is on display. Anh Vu Yu, a 40-year-old from Houston, Texas who has been a PurseForum member since 2006, became a star amongst the community when she posted multiple photos of the closet built for her Hermès collection. "My most prized bag is not just one bag; it is my entire Hermès collection that was a gift from my husband," she says. "When I built my home, I had my dream closet custom made to showcase all of my babies." (See it all here.) Vu Yu currently owns about 50 bags, 25 of which are Hermès. "My bag collection used to consist of trendy It bags in my 20s and early 30s," she says. "I’ve since downsized on the It bags. Now I mostly have Hermès Birkins and Kellys, as well as Chanel classic flap bags."

Of course, with such riches come the crazies -- as is with any forum. "We’ll get guys with fetishes coming in and asking women to post pictures of used Christian Louboutin shoes," explains a PurseForum administrator who asked that we not use her name for this story. (“Nobody likes the hall monitor,” she says, referring to the fact that trolls have attempted security breaches, like breaking into her personal Facebook account, in the past.) In general, though -- thanks to the strict moderation enforced by the Dusils -- these women see the forum as a refuge, a place where they can share their bounties without being judged harshly. "There’s a stigma attached for a lot of people that like to buy luxury goods," the administrator says. "Often people are accused of only liking something because of the label. What attracts people to the PurseForum is that the community doesn’t judge you for indulging."

While Larkie and Vu Yu have been a part of the PurseForum since 2006, there are plenty of members who only stick around for a brief time period. "I think a lot of the ‘oldies’, as they call us, left during the recession," Larkie says. "People's lives changed. They took a step back from the materialism. Like a sorority, they graduated and moved on. But I still use it as a resource."

Luckily for the Dusils, a new crop of PurseForum addicts emerged. The site is so successful that they are able to employ seven full-time employees in New York, as well as an administrator and other contract employees. Along with traditional banner ads and sponsored content, PurseBlog was an early adopter of affiliate marketing. They teamed up with the now-defunct eLuxury early on, and were one of the first to sign on with Net-a-Porter's affiliate program. "We owe our success to the community," Mahoney Dusil says. "We’re very lucky that they’re so passionate about their bags and accessories."

If there's one thing we can attest to, it's that there's nothing better than taking your sweet time unwrapping your new bag and embracing that new bag smell! We rounded up all of our favorite purchases below, and if you didn't get the opportunity to join the New Month, New Bag Club, you can always check out our forum members' other new Louis Vuitton purchases.
