When Sofia Coppola visited the Asnières workshops in 2009, she was dreaming of a bag. She wanted it to be precious and unostentatious, a subtle reworking of the iconic forms of the Speedy and Keepall models. Joining the pantheon of the House’s emblematic creations, the SC Bag has now been reinvented in small and mini versions, the height of charm and refinement.
Starting on September 21st, the SC bag will come in a special edition exclusively designed for Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, a famous department store in Paris. The bag will come in the beautifully refined, soft Cashmere leather in a subtle Cobalt Blue color with a bright fuchsia pink piping that echoes the bag’s vibrant suede calf leather lining. It combines refinement, style and functionality, making the bag perfect for everyday use.
SC Bag features short toron handles and a removable strap with shoulder pad for hand-carry and shoulder carry options, a key bell with press stud detail, double zip opening with leather-covered padlock, and shiny golden brass metallic hardware.
The Louis Vuitton SC Bag Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche will be exclusively sold at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, Rue de Sèvres, Paris, France for US$4150 and US$3550 for the PM and BB versions respectively.
For those who appreciate meticulously crafted leather in an elegant timeless bag, the Louis Vuitton Suhali line is perfect. My mother and sister, aka Anti-logo-family-members, have always been drawn to this line. The sturdy and stunning Suhali goat leather offers divine structure. The Louis Vuitton Suhali Le Confident is a smaller handbag that packs a big punch. The contrast top stitching and golden brass hardware showcase the supple leather. Rivet detailing adds a special touch along with an exterior pocket with an S-lock closure. Not an everyday bag, but a very cute handbag if you are in the market for a small shoulder bag. Dimensions are 10.6″x 7″x 5.9″.
