Louis-Vuitton-Palm-Springs-PM-Backpack

Satisfying a thriving interest in monogram products while courting higher-end consumers with more expensive and exclusive leather options is a difficult balancing act, and it’s not one that Louis Vuitton has always pulled off perfectly. The brand has made strides in its leather game under the creative direction of Nicolas Ghesquiere, though, and now that monograms feel trendy again, LV has debuted at least one bag that I’m betting will capitalize on the increased interest: the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack PM.

Louis-Vuitton-Ombre-Crocodile-Capucines-Bag

A couple months ago, we brought you news of Louis Vuitton’s most expensive women’s bag ever, but the brand has already eclipsed itself handily. An ombre crocodile version of the popular Louis Vuitton Capucines Bag will now set you back a cool $60,500, easily beating the $55,500 City Steamer.

Louis-Vuitton-Mens-Fall-2016-Bags-19

Louis Vuitton is in an interesting spot right now. Even though the brand has long wanted to put more of an emphasis on its leather goods and deflect a bit of attention from its iconic monogram and Damier canvases, monograms are gaining popularity, and now it has to find a way to both stoke its leather business and capitalize on a conflicting trend in which it already fits perfectly.

It’s been a while since the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2016 collection was shown. When the bags hit the online store, we updated you on the entire Louis Vuitton Cruise collection with prices and your opinions were mixed.

Louis-Vuitton-Spring-2016-Ad-Campaign-2

Louis Vuitton is the most powerful luxury brand in the world, so of course its ad campaigns are always season-leading blockbusters. This year the brand, lead by Nicolas Ghesquiere, made several unconventional choices to showcase its Spring 2016 runway collection.

Louis-Vuitton-Rebranding

Taking a brand that’s fallen out of favor and making it cool again is among the hardest things to do in fashion, but if I’d trust anyone to pull it off, it’d be former Balenciaga frontman Nicolas Ghesquiere.

We’ve already brought you a detailed look at Louis Vuitton’s brand new City Steamer (not to mention its extremely expensive crocodile iteration), but those aren’t the only bags Vuitton has cooked up for Cruise 2016. The brand’s Palm Springs runway show was full of new prints and shapes, including bags patterned after rippling water and palm trees, as well as a new line of backpacks in traditional monogram canvas.

During my most recent perusal of Louis Vuitton’s new arrivals on the brand’s website, I came across something that shocked even me: a crocodile version of the beautiful new Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag, retailing for a mind-boggling $55,500.

When I think of trends in fashion or accessories, I always visualize them as a swinging pendulum. As soon as something reaches the nadir of cool, it immediately starts its journey back to the other end of the spectrum; some things take longer than others to complete that swing, but in a market that feeds on aesthetic nostalgia, anything that was very cool at one time will almost certainly regain the title eventually, in some form.

If you’ve been awaiting the arrival of the Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag, which debuted on the brand’s Cruise 2016 runway in Palm Springs, then your Monday just got a whole lot better. The elegant, modern tote has arrived on Vuitton’s website in three sizes and a plethora of colors.
