Louis Vuitton says – Go Nano!

Louis Vuitton News

Just how small are we willing to go!?

As we’ve determined time and time again on PurseBop, we simply can’t get enough of small bags(and for very good reasons)! The smaller the better – mini, micro, and now even nano.

Louis Vuitton is feeding into our obsession for the teeny tiny and launching the Nano Bag Collection for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2015 line this Friday, July 3rd in stores, at least here in the US!

Louis-Vuitton-Nano-Bag-Collection

Of course, your heart probably skipped a beat at the word “nano”, but it gets even better. The Nano Bag collection features all of the classic, iconic bags in new downsized version. Expect to see your favorites:

  • The Nano Speedy
  • The Nano Alma Bag
  • The Nano Lockit Bag
  • The Nano Noe Bag
  • The Nano W Bag
  • The Nano Pallas Bag
  • The Nano Turenne Bag

Louis Vuitton has always had knack for winning us over with adorable designs. The nano collection’s smaller sized bags offer even more possibilities for toting and accessorizing LV classics. Each nano sized bag features a long leather strap for versatile wear. Each style will come in similar colors and materials to their bigger companions.

Louis Vuitton Resort 2016 Collection: Desert Flower

Louis Vuitton News

LouisVuitton_Resort_2016_Bag_1

Palm Springs, with its casual, Southern California ease, is almost the last place you would expect the quietly reflective (and quintessentially French) Nicholas Ghesquière to show his newest collection for Louis Vuitton. But lo and behold, out poured his rhapsodic, simultaneously modern and retro, era-referencing Resort ’16 collection for the house at the Bob Hope Estate, an architectural gem that served as the ideal venue. Desert glam was in full force!

So were plenty of new bag shapes, unusual for a Resort collection but for a house that was built upon bags, a fact that makes perfect sense. They run the gamut from squarely structured top-handle totes, petite clutches with studded and quilted texture, easy backpacks (one classically monogrammed) and the bag that’s become the brand’s quintessential piece all over again, the trunk, reimagined yet again in gutsy prints and a spectrum of sizes.

As for the ready-to-wear, Ghesquière’s astute way with fabrication, construction, and technology is ever at play, evident through the seemingly lax crosshatching of a woven sheath, the multi-textural dresses, cropped bomber jackets, and printed panels of the multiple pairs of hot pants (which seem fitting of semi-tragic Iris of Taxi Driver for a ready ’70s reference). But it’s the maxi dress that’s the star of the collection – and likely the season! Flowing yet cinched with hourglass shape-inducing belts, accentuated with broad leather accents, cut out to reveal a bit of midriff flesh, or zippered down the front for modern edge, they avoid any superfluous volume and have style to spare. Unlike say, Saint Laurent’s randy nightcrawler of recent seasons, Louis Vuitton’s newly revitalized girl is not dressing for the spectacle (or to be part of the spectacle). By layering her deep-plunging camisoles over collared shirts and finishing her luxe apparel with chunky flip-flops, she’s announcing her clothes – and the confidence it takes to pull them off – are her thrill, and those alone. And no big surprise: I’m thrilled right along with her.

This Tote is Louis Vuitton’s Most Expensive Leather Handbag Ever

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Crocodile-City-Steamer-Bag

During my most recent perusal of Louis Vuitton’s new arrivals on the brand’s website, I came across something that shocked even me: a crocodile version of the beautiful new Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag, retailing for a mind-boggling $55,500. I have a couple questions, including, why couldn’t they leave off the $500 and make it a nice, round number?

My other major question was whether or not this is Louis Vuitton’s most expensive handbag of all time, and according to my research, it’s not. The Richest counts two special edition Louis Vuitton minaudieres at more than $100,000 apiece, but neither was made out of traditional handbag materials, so that seems like cheating. When you narrow the list down to regular handbags, the most expensive representative of which I can find record is the Dora PM in crocodile, which is close (but no cigar) at $50,000 currently; the most expensive previous version of the bag was $54,500. This bag, in my humble opinion, is leaps and bounds more beautiful than that one.

With that in mind, I’m comfortable declaring this bag the brand’s most expensive leather offering of all time, and for the most powerful luxury brand in the world, that’s worth noting. Louis Vuitton has been ramping up its leather and exotic offerings for years in an effort to charm the world’s wealthiest shoppers, and it seems clear this model is meant to compete head-on with the ultra-rare, ultra-expensive exotic versions of the Hermès Birkin. Someone had to take on that iconic bag eventually, and there’s perhaps no one more qualified than Nicolas Ghesquiere at Louis Vuitton.

Check out the bag for yourself at Louis Vuitton; to purchase, you’ll have to have your people call their people.

louis_vuitton_boite-promenade2

louis_vuitton_boite-promenade3Because I’m pretty sure all of you needed better pics. Because it’s coming out soon. And because of the way they’re priced, we would probably need months and months just to save up for it. From Louis Vuitton’s F/W15 collection comes Boîte Promenade, which you could say is the Petite Malle‘s bigger sister (or brother, whichever you’re comfortable with).

Available in 2 sizes and a plethora of finishes from Monogram to Epi, prices for the 4 above start from SGD16,100 and end at SGD65,500, with the other two priced atSGD23,400 and SGD28,100 respectively. And after you’ve managed to close your open mouth, let’s play a quick game. Care to match the trunks to their respective prices?

Louis Vuitton’s fall 15-16 collection was a tribute to the creations of Christopher Nemeth, the late English fashion designer and artist. Developed by Kim Jones, Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton men’s collections, the collection references the cord print and the “Harajuku”-spirit silhouette that inspired Nemeth’s work in Japan.
