LOUIS VUITTON VERNIS LISSE ALMA BAG

Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-Alma-Vernis-Bag-3

Can you see who this is? It’s hardly recognizable with its new cover, but if you take a closer at the shape and handle, you will know that we’re dealing with the iconic Alma Bag. Exclusively crafted for the Fall 2017 Collection; this Alma is a true mix of classic and modern.

It’s the new facets of the Vernis leather and the first-time we’ve spotted this design was on the Louis Vuitton Miroir Tote Bag. The new look is feminine, modern and fabulous. The Vernis leather is made from calfskin and in patent. It feels smooth and luxurious. The front is also printed with the house’s LV signature. It can’t get classier than that.

This bag screams fashion on every angle and will definitely attract a lot of eyes. Especially because of the Monogram Canvas handles and shoulder strap. And take a narrow look at the handles; it’s cleverly made in two styles – on one side it’s the Monogram Canvas, on the other side is in patented Vernis leather.

The nametag is the final refinement, it’s made in Monogram Canvas and it can be personalized with your name on it.

The interior features one large compartment and one flat pocket in Monogram Canvas. This new Alma comes in several colors, but each of them gives a stunning disruptive feel because of their audacious color.

So which color do you like?

The Alma BB Bag in Vernis Lisse is measured 9.8’ x 7.6’ x 4.7’ inches (L x H x W), priced at $1820 USD, €1320 euro, £1230 GBP, $15100 HKD, $2350 AUD, ¥14000 CNY, ¥213840 JPY, $2250 CAD via Louis Vuitton boutiques.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Savane Collection

Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

If you’re a fan of the weird and the wonderful, a fan of Kim Jones, a fan of Chapman Brothers and a fan of Louis Vuitton, this new collection, from the French luxury house’s S/S17 collection for the boys, is definitely for you. Simply known as the Monogram Savane collection (Savane being the French word for savannah), it’s pretty obvious to see why.

Filled with beasts that roam the wide open lands of Africa given the #ChapmanBrothers treatment, they look slightly deranged with googly eyes and menacing teeth, which in a strange way, is also why these pieces are so appealing. The other thing to note is the house monogram that’s been given a mini-makeover of sorts. Outlined, instead of the solids we are more used to, it works well on the Ink (a dark blue) or Watercolour (a light cream) that most of the bags, small leather goods and additional accessories this seasonal collection will be made available in.

First up, we’ve got the Louis Vuitton’s classic Pochette Voyage MM (shown above) that comes with a crazed-looking lion on the Monogram Savane Inkprint. Priced at SGD1160, there’s another in Monogram Savane Watercolour print that comes with a giraffe and a rhino, which you’ll see posted on my Facebook page later.

Another interesting beast to consider is this, the Messenger GM that comes with a bug-eyed zebra. Complete with an adjustable strap, a main compartment with a pair of front pockets and finished with a front flap, it’s a bag that’s good for both play and work, provided of course you work in the creative line. Priced at SGD3800, don’t you just adore zebra’s crazily extended tongue as well?

And then there are the small leather goods, of which a small selection is shown above. From the iPhone7 Folio (SGD470) that comes in Monogram Savane Ink to the Pocket Organiser and the PF Brazza in Monogram Savane Watercolour (prices are unavailable as yet), these pieces will all make great additions for fans of Louis Vuitton. Or to those who appreciate quality, great design and a sense of humour.

For those looking for a proper billfold, there’s also the PF Multiple in Monogram Savane Ink, which will set you back by just SGD820. And for the perfect finishing touches, there’s everything from bag charms (or key rings) to a set of coin-like brooches. The bracelet, which looks like it’s inspired by pull-tabs from drink cans, looks pretty cool too. And yes, there will be more updates (bag styles and prices) to come so do stay tuned.

Bag Review: Louis Vuitton Monogram Nano Dora

Louis Vuitton

As you get older like me (ouch!), you will find yourself wanting to carry bags with less weight. A month ago, I went to the Louis Vuitton boutique and saw the cutest mini bags. They are lightweight and easy to carry because of the shoulder strap which works for crossbody wear. Alongside the classic mini pieces (speedy, noe, alma), there was the mini version of the Monogram Dora.

NanoDora1

It is a very cute, structured nano bag. But woaah the price is already at par with that of a regular sized Speedy! Would you rather go with this adorable little bag or would you pay for the larger Speedy? 

The Monogram Nano Dora can fit a card case, your phone, a lipstick, a powder compact, and probably a pair of sunnies, though I won’t exactly push it only because I don’t know how squished it might get inside with all your other things. But it definitely fits 

NanoDora2

I would probably buy this bag if I have a lot of $$$, but hah since I am currently cutting down on the stuff that has cluttered my closet, I will just save my money for something else 

And speaking of clutter, I decided to put up a group on Facebook called THE CLOSET RAIDERS. This is an online bulletin board for everyone to post CLOTHES and SHOES (no bags or wallets please– if you have a designer bag *worth over PhP 10K, send me a PM on instagram.com/shopthebaghag for consignment) that they no longer use or wear. I have a lot of stuff I will post in the next month, after I get back from my fashion week travels. It is a closed group so please ask to be added

LOUIS VUITTON PETITE MALLE NECKLACE COLLECTION

Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-Petite-Malle-Cube-Pendant

I can only imagine what Nicolas Ghesquière was thinking, when he moved from Balenciaga to Louis Vuitton. He must be thinking: ‘I am going to drop something so fucking hot, that it will literally shake the world’. And then as he was studying the history and tradition of Louis Vuitton, he can’t keep his mind of the iconic 1800s trunk, the symbol of the house.

And so in his thought he was imagining: ‘A woman carrying a mini trunk on her shoulder and companied with a mini trunk necklace’. Fabulous!

Presenting the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Jewelry Collection and as you might have already expected from such a famous brand – everything about the ‘Petite Malle Pendant’, even in the tiniest details, is the exact copy of the historical Louis Vuitton trunk, recreated with fine craftsmanship. The padding, handles, saddles, Louis Vuitton signature, nails and even the corner pieces, oh gosh, a standing ovation please!

The Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Pendant comes in three different trunk pieces: A cubic trunk, open trunk that shows the interior and rectangular trunk. They are all made in 18k gold and the prices, well:

Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Cube Pendant
Material: 18k gold

Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Open Pendant
Material: 18k gold

Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Rectangle Pendant
Material: 18k gold
