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.

Louis Vuitton Twist MM with Braid Work Detail

When I first started PurseBlog, I was super into Louis Vuitton. I remember getting my name on the list and securing a few sought after bags, including the Watercolor Speedy (which was only $1,270 when I bought it in 2008!).

Whether or not you like the brand’s ubiquitous logo bags, one thing is inarguable: Louis Vuitton is the biggest handbag brand in the world. Not only does it sit atop luxury industry indexes, but it has a handbag history as long and storied as any in fashion.

There are plenty of legitimate ways to celebrate a new season, but over the past couple years, it seems like handbag brands have come to a tentative agreement that their favorite way to do it is with a new print.

When people think of Louis Vuitton bags, they usually think of either the brand’s ubiquitous brown and beige monogram, or maybe one of its equally iconic Damier check prints. As with most things, though, the real treasures lie just below the surface, and I’m not talking about all of the smooth leather bags Nicolas Ghesquiere has introduced in his tenure at Vuitton.

During his 16-year tenure at the helm of Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs tended to experiment with prints in a few specific ways; either he went for straightforward takes on the brand’s iconic monogram and Damier patterns, or he brought in an art world titan to shake up the monogram for a limited edition capsule collection.

All four global fashion weeks have distinct strengths and weaknesses, and high-end bags is always one of New York’s. We’re a city that churns out some of the finest contemporary options in the world, from Mansur Gavriel to Coach, but once you start climbing the price ladder, things get a little bit tricker in the good ol’ US of A.

Louis-Vuitton-Fall-2016-Bags-1

Yesterday, someone asked me what I thought about the new crop of Louis Vuitton bags from the brand’s Fall 2016 runway, and the first thing that sprang to mind was, “Well, there’s a lot going on.” I don’t mean that in a bad way (the collection is often excellent), but it also means I don’t know where to start.

A lot of this week’s celeb handbag picks just make you want to reach out and touch them. But, we strongly advise against that. There’s no telling what Iggy Azalea will do if you randomly walk up and stroke her Fendi bag.
