A A few months ago, PurseBop introduced you to a Louis Vuitton favorite, which we like to lovingly refer to as the “The Darling Dora Tote“. The LV Dora Tote Bag was first introduced in the Fall/Winter 2014 collection under the creative direction of Nicolas Ghesquire. Since then, the Dora has remained dear in our hearts because of her chic timelessness. Much to our luck, The Dora tote is revisiting us in the new Fall/Winter 2015 collection.
This fall the Dora comes in a variety of new colors, textures, and even SIZES! The handbag world has proclaimed small is the new big with the mini handbag trend. The powerhouse Louis Vuitton was quick to follow suit with the tiny trend as seen by the Nano collection. This season the Dora tote will be available in MM, PM, BB, and a new mini size.

New Louis Vuitton Dora Tote Styles
The mini Dora comes in the iconic Malletage pattern Ghesquiere introduced in his first Louis Vuitton collection ever as creative director. The Malletage pattern is an allusion to the details on classic LV trunks. Malletage is made of lambskin leather and is highly dimensional and polished, which adds an elegant flair to the Dora tote. The Dora Mini in Malletage comes in a rich red color called “Carmine” and classic “Noir” this season. The mini is also offered with pink trim this season in monogram canvas.
Another new rendition of the Dora this Fall is the “ultra soft” leather MM tote. The ultra soft Dora is crafted from Taurillon leather, which has a big, visible grains and a supple feel. The texture of the leather attributes to the softer, rounder corners of this Dora, and lends to an overall less structured look.
Aside from the mini version and ultra soft styles, the Dora is available in different bicolor options and crocodile leathers.
