Ever, year, usually in September, Louis Vuitton debuts a new animation print that graces some of its most popular accessories for the holidays. If you’ve been anxiously awaiting 2016’s edition, today is your lucky day! Thanks to our PurseForum members, I’ve learned that the new 2016 Louis Vuitton Christmas Animation Collection is available in stores now.
I’ve always been extremely fond of the Louis Vuitton SC Bag. Designed by filmmaker Sofia Coppola in collaboration with Marc Jacobs during his tenure at Vuitton, the bag is rendered in soft calfskin, generally in a solid, neutral shade, and finished with little in the way of hardware, beyond a metal padlock.
We warned you at the beginning of March that embellished, statement-making straps were a nascent trend, and now the world’s biggest luxury brand has lent the look its seal of approval. Louis Vuitton just launched a line of sold-separately Bandoulière Straps, and compared to brands of comparable caliber, they’re actually pretty well priced.
It’s never all that hard to figure out which new bags Louis Vuitton is betting on. The massive French brand is singularly powerful within the luxury industry, and that means it has plenty of famous friends to rely on when it comes for drumming up pre-release interest in a new design.
It should shock no one who knows the history of Louis Vuitton that the brand’s luggage is still an enduring, functional favorite of luxury travelers (and plenty of globetrotting celebrities) the world over–after all, the company got its start by building custom travel solutions for European royals and nobility.
The Louis Vuitton Neverfull remains one of the most beloved everyday bags in the luxury handbag world. With diverse offerings including classic Monogram, Damier and Epi leather, the bag comes in a variety of sizes and is among the bags I see most commonly carried and that people search for on our site.
Something was definitely in the air this week, because we found an abundance of Louis Vuitton bags on our Instagram feed; we’re certainly not complaining! You know what they say: the heart wants what the heart wants, and it’s clear that our Instagram followers’ hearts are smitten over LV.
For most large brands, men’s bags are something of and afterthought. If a satchel or tote design works well in the women’s line, it gets simplified, enlarged and made more neutral in order to appeal to dudes, and that’s about as far as most brands go when it comes to innovative design for their male fanbases.
Louis Vuitton debuted an expansive Cruise 2017 collection in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, earlier this week, but news out of the South American country wasn’t all positive for the French luxury brand. According to the New York Times, the Vuitton store in Rio’s upscale Ipanema neighborhood was robbed Tuesday morning, only two days after the attention-grabbing show.
In a reminder that fashion is a truly global industry, Louis Vuitton debuted its Cruise 2017 collection in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, over the weekend while most of America was grilling hot dogs, not contemplating global fashion or the coming Olympics, which will also be held in Rio.
