I’ve said it before, and I am saying it again. I despise LV’s traditional monogram canvas. I don’t find anything pretty about it, and all the canvases that derived from it over the years look like Takashi himself puked his guts out on them… multicolore, panda, cerises, you name them. Me no likes. But that doesn’t mean that Louis Vuitton can not create bags that my eyes feast on.
The recent ostrich-trimmed Toile Trianon collection was introduced for last year’s spring-summer runway collection to coincide with Vuitton’s 150th anniversary and features details reminiscent of the first canvas-lined, embossed leather patch trunks the company produced in the late 1800s. The Louis Vuitton Sac De Nuit is a prime specimen of the aforementioned collection. Ain’t it to die for? A Toile Trianon cotton and polyester canvas, plated ostrich leather trimmings, along with the varnished polished brass buckle and nail hardware, they all contribute to this bag being the most fashionable way to sport a vintage Louis look these days. Striped cotton and polyester lining fill the interior, as inspired from the early trunk beds. This remarkable bag is destined to become a timeless classic, and sure the price tag does reflect its exclusivity. For almost $4,000 available through eLuxury.
