Louis Vuitton builds plush trunks for the 2017 French Open Trophies

Louis Vuitton


It’s time for the second grand slam of the year and we cannot wait to witness our beloved hotshots, (read Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Angelique Kerber) sweating it out for the legendary Roland-Garros’ trophies. Amidst the high-power struggles and some on and off court drama, one news that has managed to catch our eye is the unveiling of the novel LV trunks that will house the Grand 2017 French Open Trophies.


The French label has specially created two trophy trunks for the Suzanne-Lenglen Cup and the Musketeers’ Cup, each of which is awarded to the French Open Women’s and Men’s champions every year. Manufactured by Maison Mellerio, the oldest and probably the most revered Goldsmith in the world, the two trophies are a result of long hours of work and excellent craftsmanship. It’s no wonder then, that the prestigious cups have found a home as luxurious as the LV trunks.

Meticulously produced at the brand’s historic workshops in Asnières, the LV trunks boast of terracotta-colored interiors as well as the signature brass corners and lock. Adorned in the iconic Monogram canvas, one can also catch the quintessential ‘V’ mark on the front of them for an added dose of charm. It will certainly be exciting to know who bags these luxe LV trunks (and the French open trophies) this year.

Louis Vuitton Epi Denim Clery & Speedy25

Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Hello, it’s me doing my broken recorder spiel once again. Regarding what, you ask? Well, I said this once before, and I’ll say it again. Every time you walk into any Louis Vuitton you’ll be sure to spot something new as far as bags are concerned, and one could say they put out new styles faster than it takes rabbits to reproduce. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing if you’re always on a lookout for something new as far as your bag wardrobe is concerned.

Having stepped into Louis Vuitton just the other day, I’m happy to report that this is still true, and besides the tried-and-tested icons placed prominently at all corners of the boutique (why hello there Monogram Canvas Speedy, long time no see Epi Alma), there were new bags I’ve never seen, including the subject of today’s post, the Clery, and the iconic Speedy25 in a new ‘skin’.

First up, we’ve got the Clery, which is completely new to me. Measuring some 23 cm across by 17 cm in height, it resembles a shrunken briefcase, what with its flat top handle that can extended upwards (or pushed flat down), its front fold-over flap that opens into a rather roomy interior complete with designated card slots.

Available in 4 other different Epi colours besides the one in Epi Denimthat’s shown above, the SGD2330 bag will make a great weekend companion, with or without its removable shoulder sling that’s length-adjustable.

The next bag, the Speedy25 Bandouliere definitely needs no explanation. An icon in its own right, it’s the fact that it now comes in Epi Denim that’s pretty amazing, like the Epi Speedy bags of the 90s sans sling. Priced at SGD2990 (it is leather after all, and not coated canvas), you’ll find both bags now at Louis Vuitton boutiques islandwide.

Too many bags to handle.

Literally.

Can you pick Louis Vuitton’s Fall Winter 2014 Handbags? (not even mentioning the upcoming Spring Summer 2015 Collection).

Now here we go; the Louis Vuitton Doc Bag, the Petite Malle Bag, The Babylone Bag, The Pallas Chain Bag. So can you pick? Well I can’t, I want to take them all home. And to make it even worst, presenting the Louis Vuitton Monogram Empreinte St Germain Shoulder Bag. So, this is how the brand describes it: ‘The Epitome of Elegant’ and I totally agree with it. It’s a sophisticated handbag, delivered in Monogram Empreinte Leather. Royal and beautiful, carry it over the shoulder or on the elbow, walk from day to the evening or during the weekends. Either in black or beige, it doesn’t matter. The flashy chains will impressive anyone that walks pass you. Obviously it comes with an adjustable chain strap. The interior is very interesting; it’s made with two compartments and it gives you room to carry more than your daily essentials. Available at Louis Vuitton boutique and e-store, it comes in two sizes: Louis Vuitton Monogram Empreinte St Germain Shoulder Bag MM Size: 12.2’ x 9.1’ x 4.3’ (L x H x W) inches Louis Vuitton Monogram Empreinte St Germain Shoulder Bag PM Size: 11’ x 6.3’ x 3.1’ (L x H x W) inchesLouis-Vuitton-St-Germain-Bag-PM-3Louis-Vuitton-St-Germain-Bag-MMLouis-Vuitton-St-Germain-Bag-MM-2Louis-Vuitton-St-Germain-Bag-PM-2

STREET SNAPS: LOUIS VUITTON LOCKIT BAG

Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-Lockit-Bag-3

So last week, you were well informed about the new Louis Vuitton Lockit Bag and its long history. The original design was first launched in 1958, compare that to the iconic Louis Vuitton Noé bag, which was introduced in 1932.

The Louis Vuitton Lockit Bag has been remade, crafted in grained veau cachemire calfskin – its ultra feminine, completely modernized, bigger in size and light weighed.

Louis-Vuitton-Lockit-Bag

But as much as we like model pictures, we also love to take another look from a different perspective. An authentic picture without Photoshop or whatsoever is preferable. And if possible, go and visit the Louis Vuitton boutique to see it in real life, that’s the best way to judge a bag.

The Lockit can be your everyday bag, going from work to evening, also ideal for the weekends. You can literally store your laptop and other A4 documents inside and still, it has room left.

But note – this bag doesn’t need to show off, there is no oversized LV logo crafted anywhere. Instead, you can find in the front the signature: ‘Louis Vuitton Paris’. That’s how powerful this beauty is.

Priced $4,200 USD and €2,800 euro’s at Louis Vuitton boutique, for more information about prices, colors and sizes, go to ourLouis Vuitton Lockit Bag page.

LOUIS VUITTON BOWLING VANITY BAG

Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-Bowling-Vanity-Bag

And what did we say?

We told you the Louis Vuitton Bowling Vanity Bag was coming this way, but we were never informed about its true name. For the Fall Winter 2016Collection, this high fashion brand will be stocking very interesting bags including the ‘Petite Malle’, you remember? (if not, more details next week).

Now back to the Louis Vuitton Bowling Vanity Bag. There are two styles available, one is made from ‘Tweed’ and the other is made from ‘Fabric’ – a true legacy, a piece of art and an eye catching accessory that’s different than many Louis Vuitton bags that we are used to.

A tag is hanging on the pearl chain handles; a chic closure is put on the zipper area, simply gorgeous. The tweed has been embellished on the front and the back, the colors remind me of the ‘fall’ – the moments when the leaves are changing colors and dropping on the ground.

The details:

Louis Vuitton Bowling Vanity Tweed
Measuring 11’ x 8.6’ x 4.3’
Colors available are Vert and Blue

Louis Vuitton Bowling Vanity Tuffetage
Measuring 11’ x 8.6’ x 4.3’
Colors available: Blue
