Louis Vuitton New Bags – Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection – A Homage To Japanese Culture

Fashion Trends

The Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection is the fashion God’s love of Japan coming to life. Nicolas Ghesquière designed this set of Louis Vuitton new bags with only one thing in mind: japanese art and culture. Never have the flavors of Japan ever colored a range of bags in a captivating manner as Ghesquière’s. And we could not be more jubilant! It is no secret that the master designer is in love with the Japanese culture. It is only fitting that he would dedicate an entire fashion range of Louis Vuitton bags to the mystical island.

On a first look, you would only see a wonderful medley of colors and patterns. But those with an eye for fashion and style would not fail to recognize the wonderful style. It is an unusual, yet captivating charm weaved into these bags. The great fashion house unveiled the Louis Vuitton new bags at Miho museum, an hour’s drive from Tokyo. The collection features the typical Japanese themes such as Samurais, Manga, Kabuki, Obi belts. And, of course, the enchanting Japanese landscape. All were designed by the much-beloved Kansaï Yamamoto, with whom the Louis Vuitton designer has partnered up with.

Here are a few highlights of the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway

  • Louis Vuitton Speedy bags that almost entirely discarded the traditional LV Monogram canvas

If you know your handbags, you would be familiar with the traditional design of Louis Vuitton Speedy bags. That means sparse designs against a canvas of LV Monograms. There were a few Louis Vuitton speedy bags that sported this conventional pattern with Japanese-themed designs. Other bags had completely discarded tradition and done more bold, vivid Japanese patterns. The darker, sober colors of LV were seen to be replaced by the more bold colors of Japan.

  • Peeping eyes bags

This was a stunning new addition to Louis Vuitton’s collections. Yamamoto took a very bold step in adding a pair of huge eyes, peeping form the flaps of the bags. Peeping eyes bags include all kinds of handbags – Speedy bags, Petite Malle Cases, crossbodies and so on. The peeping eyes are characteristic of Japanese drama, which involves exaggerated eye-gestures. The addition of such unusually big eyes was a show-stopper. Perhaps it might have been used in this manner for the first time.

  • Japanese lanterns-inspired Bucket Bags

Nothing reflected Ghesquière’s passion for Japan as much as the Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags. These Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags are designed base on traditional Japanese lanterns, and designed with sober Japanese patterns. One of the Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags also stuck to tradition and sported the conventional LV Monogram canvas.

  • Tradition was not entirely eschewed

How could LV leave behind entirely the typical, chocolate-brown LV Monogram canvas? This is the pattern that is the hallmark of Louis Vuitton bags. The Louis Vuitton new bags range also has plenty of bags, designed as per tradition. The LV Monogram canvas features on every type of bag. That means all the classics: Petite Malle Cases, Speedy Bags, Hat Box Bags, Hobo Bags and so on.

All in all, the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection is a daring new reinvention. This is generally expected from an all new bag collection. Chanel and Dior’s had stunning presentations of their captivating designs. After these Louis Vuitton had to do something to outdo expectations. Besides, it was a fitting tribute to the culture and history of Japan. As Ghesquière himself said, “Every cruise collection is a discovery and it’s a game of integrating the culture of the country we are visiting with a point of view that is very French and Parisian.”

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.

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.

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2016 Bags

Louis Vuitton News

We’ve have been completely overwhelmed by all the fabulous bags coming our way this season. Just in case you haven’t been following the instagram and the #PurseBopGoesToParis adventures, I have been investigating the latest bag styles just for YOU. Many of the styles I saw in France haven’t hit the US shelves yet, so you’ll be ahead of your shopping game when they’re released in the states. So far, I’ve taken an up close look at the Chanel Spring 2016 Patent Boy Bags and also did a thorough comparison of the Chloe Drew Bags.

Today, I’m here to share a sneak peek of Louis Vuitton’s new bags from the Spring/Summer 2016 collection. You’ll agree with me that some of these bags are true pieces of art!

Some Louis Vuitton SS16 bags are already available for purchase in the US. Others are expected to hit the shelves at the end of this month and early February.

The Louis Vuitton SS16 collection has a very futuristic, sci-fi vibe that still honors LV’s traditional styles and structures. Nicolas Ghesquiere quoted that the sci-fi movie Tron was his basis of inspiration for this line. Some bags such as the Alma were adorned with large, shiny embellishments making them look more like techy machines rather than just simple handbags. Other bags I saw had large, almost cartoon like graphics playing up on the idea of computer generated, digital fun. More than anything, Ghesquiere’s experimental attitude is apparent in this collection. The handbag is taken out of its everyday context and turned into a high-tech fantasy.

The Mirrored Alma is a standout piece of the collection and immediately draws your eye. This is a bag that demands recognition for being unique, but it isn’t so out there and eccentric to the point of being impractical. The mirrored circles are very shiny and reflective, which adds a cool dimensionality to the bag especially when you’re carrying it.

Region Louis Vuitton Mirrored Alma
USA $5,500
Europe €3,800
VAT Refund (approx. 10%) - €380
Cost after VAT €3,420
USD Equivalent $3,726

Handbag Math…

Louis Vuitton Alma in United States: $5,500

Louis Vuitton Alma in France: €3,800

Total Price in US: $5,500 + $564 (tax 10.25%) = $6,064

Potential Savings in France: €3,800 – €380 (VAT refund 10%) = €3,420 = $3,726 USD equivalent (savings ~ 39%)

The Louis Vuitton City Steamer I saw at the Paris store was definitely one of the more understated pieces of the collection. The colorblocking of red, gold/tan, and black still makes a statement, but would be suitable for everyday wear.

This fabulous Louis Vuitton Twist bag is a perfect example of the very digital, graphic patterns featured in this collection. The chain print alludes to LV’s monogram, but with the freshness of the future.

IMG_2455

I must say LV was not holding back on quirky, statement pieces in this collection! Each of these bags can speak for themselves and you may just find the perfect one to help your collection pop during the spring.

Keeping checking back to stay on top of the game for next season. have more Spring/Summer 2016 updates very soon!
