We don’t often write about men’s accessories in these parts, but the manbags (and gloves and belts and sunglasses and shoes…) that just debuted in Paris for Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 are too good to pass up. I don’t personally know too many men who carry clutches, but most of the hand-held bags would make great travel accessories to carry inside the collection’s larger options. Or, if I get my way, they’d also be great to loan to a ladyfriend. Full pictures after the jump.

    Love it! (ipad)

  • ninjaninja

    I love incorporating men’s bags into my wardrobe because it’s a fun way to play around with the contract between feminine and masculine (ipad).

  • Tonya

    Call me old fashion but I still can’t get with guys carrying bags…what happen to the wallet in the backpocket?! I still hear LV (ipad)

  • Ellen

    I love that camel colored portfolio. The whole collection is a stand out. (ipad)

  • Vitta

    Well, guys do carry bags when they need them (travel, work, etc). You cannot fit everything in the wallet, you know, and I’m happy to see that LV came up with this great collection. OK, my guys (ages of 66, 32 and 25) love the bags #12 and #13, portfolio #15, shoes #1,2,3 and glasses #9. (ipad)

  • Tonya

    I understand carrying one for (travel, work) but seeing a guy reach into his bag to pay for the check will take some getting use 2 or I prob. won’t ever get use to it. And I’ve never been a fan of a fanny pack on a man….(ipad)

    i love the brief:) (ipad)

  • Karin bag4bag

    I don’t know any men that actually carry a bag, apart from a messenger/laptop bag for uni. Not really that appealing…(ipad)

  • sebastian Giam

    there is nothing wrong with man carrying bags. with a collection like that, i would love to see the mordern man using those bag as often as they want, whenever they want, without being judge! (ipad)

  • 19yearslater

    I didn’t realize these were for men when I first saw the picture. I can’t picture many guys using these accessories, but they’re very nice. (ipad)

  • polaris

    love the stuff for myself :)

  • nini

    I like the last portfolio. (ipad)

  • cl

    i think a lot of those bags are super cute… BUT the clutches…… I don’t think i’ll ever be able to embrace that. The messenger are nice though! even for women :) (ipad)

    • milwifey

      I agree… I think the clutch is a little to feminine. I would LOVE one of those for myself! (ipad)

  • Jenn

    Good valentine’s gift for the guy in your life (ipad)

    My DH would never go for this. (ipad)

  • Jennifer

    I cannot think of any men in my life who would carry a bag (ipad)

  • Thanh

    Murses! (ipad)

  • nick

    The reasons why men and women carry bags are the same. It is up to the person if he/she wants to carry a bag or just carry things in their pockets/hands. I like the shoes and sunglasses from this collection. (ipad)

  • Miriam

    beautiful (ipad)

  • Lucinda

    Wow, I want them for myself! Don’t normally like Louis (love the designs but not the monogramming) but these are perfect (ipad).

  • Theo Mkololo

    (From South Africa)Omw I just totaly love the collection, stylish, very practical and stil manly, just what 2011 is all about. Ladies the days when men just had wallets are over, we now carry iphones, ipads, should I continue,so a bag or manbag is truely needed and welcome. Love LV

  • swati

    None of the men i know carry a ‘bag’ ….. They would probably die of embarrassment to be seen with one …. but i can see myself carrying a couple of the pieces to work …. would look interesting ….. especially like the last bag …. and the orange trousers … now if i could only convince someone to wear them!…. (ipad)

  • edoardo

    Nica and very elegant but it’s too less by LV I want mroe by such a famous brand!!

  • Mochababe73

    I saw pictures of these bags on another site. The collection similar to the black duffle is beautiful. I actually want the duffle for myself.
    However, most of these are impractical, and my husband wouldn’t be caught dead in most of these. He works in DC so he would want a bag that will carry his laptop, look stylish, and be functional.

    These bags are gorgeous! I’d prefer to look at these bags as unisex. Mostly because I want one. (ipad)

  • Chele

    What a beautiful collection! (ipad)

  • Lorie

    It doesn’t bother me to see men carrying bags of any size or shape. Why shouldn’t they have nice accessories too? These days you have to carry all your gadgets and umpteen bazillion cables and attachments. And if you have a long commute, you might need all sorts of things just to make it through your day or even into the night. The only thing that bothers me is that I have major bag envy. :-)

    My late husband always carried a big portfolio like photo #15 (although not as nice as LV). He had ADHD and couldn’t keep up with something small like a wallet. It really helped keep him organized.

    This whole line is gorgeous! I see several I’d love to have for myself.

  • JW

    AS a guy, I love my bags!!! I carry my bag everything…I think it will be better if I use a bag than a plastic bag to carry my stuffs…back to the topic…I am glad finally LV is focusing on men (ipad)

  • Eva Knox

    My fiance would love every piece here….
    There`s nothing sexier than a men toting a hot trendy bag.

  • tadpolenyc

    that black briefcase with the textured leather is AWESOME! i’d carry that. forget my man. ;p

  • Vitta

    Girls, ask your guy first what he thinks about these bags and portfolios, prior to making a statement that “you” can’t imagine him carrying a bag. After all, this collection is for him, not for you. If your guy is a professional who attends business meetings, ask him how he carries his stuff (laptop, ipad, bb, cell, business docs, pen, business cards, glasses, gloves, comb, may be a pack of cigarettes, lighter, etc.). In his pockets, you think? (ipad)

    • tex

      Thank you! Someone with insight. I came from a country that MOST men carry bags (from plastic bags, bagpacks, duffles, totes, etc) because the mode of transportation and the weather does not allow for just a wallet. The money alone is so inflated that you couldn’t fit a wade of cash in your wallet and be able to buy things throughout the day. Credit card use is very limited to only big companies. You have to carry your money in a bag just to have enough. You can’t leave your things on your motorcycles or bikes without someone trying to steal it and if you leave it in the taxi, you will never see your things again! LV is designing for the international market, just not for America, so they are looking at the wants of the world. All those comments about no men should carry bags are just plain sexist and racist. A bag is a bag, designer or not. Why can’t men carry designer bags also? They already wear designer suits, clothes, shoes, glasses, watches, belts, coats, scarves, etc. Men have been carrying bags before the wallet existed so why can’t they carry them now?

    I think I’ll be shopping at Louis men section this season theese are much better than the bags they have created for women.

  • Dominic

    Vuitton is definitely the place to go for men’s accessories (ipad)

  • Kathy

    Totally great for men or women (ipad)

  • Tonya

    @ Vitta, As I said before I can understand a man carrying these for “business”. However, according to “my guy” he wouldn’t be caught dead carrying a bag that’s similar to a clutch purse or wearing a fanny pack to a sports event,movies, lounge etc.

    Is it that hard for you to believe that there are guys that don’t carry bags or mens accessories? Call them old fashion or what have you but to some it seems a bit feminine. (ipad)

  • Tonya

    I do however could see myself carring a few of those esp. picture 6 and 14. (ipad)

  • wendy

    I like the briefcase and duffle. (ipad)

  • Beth

    I would like to carry this “manbag.” LV men’s line is so fashionable. (ipad)

  • Tahnee

    Ooh ho man…my husband would never ever…EVER!! lol Some of the stuff I like, but others, it just seems too girly and i personally like a manly-man ;) (ipad)

  • Diane Bassette

    nice (ipad)

  • Diane Bassette

    Some things I just don’t care for..for a man (ipad)

  • Ines

    Hmm.. I don’t think a lot of men will take to using clutches (ipad)

  • Cathy Fitz

    I don’t know of any man that would use a clutch, but I would look into this line (of bags – not shoes) for myself.

  • Cathy Fitz

    Forgot to add (ipad)

  • Limey

    I don’t think any man would carry one unless they were metro (ipad)

  • Tiffany

    I wish men would carry bags like these more! (ipad)

  • LDJ

    Thats a bad manbag in that 1st pic. I don’t care for men toting clutches/bags…whatever. Just stick to toting a wallet. But I would love to have that bag for myself. (Im just saying, lol). (ipad).

    • LDJ

      ok, but….if the bag is in reference for work, I’ll let the man pass. lol. (ipad)

  • Vitta

    Sharp collection! The duffle #12 and the soft-sided brief #13 are perfect for work, school, gym and travel even for the most macho man. The classic portfolios #8 and #15 (that’s how they’re called, not “clutches”) are great for professionals and businessmen. The shoes, the gloves and the glasses are smart, too. I’m thinking of ordering a couple of items for my guys. Thank you, LV! (ipad)

  • Lianne

    I love #15. I’d carry it to a meeting in a heartbeat. (ipad)

  • Louisa

    These are timeless pieces will last forever! (ipad)

  • Aman

    Mmmmmmm…..clutch for men??? So camp and think only fashion glue would carry these clutch bags but not for me thank you. I have to say that these new collection somehow remind me of one if mist famous Italian bland G.A.!!!! Not the best collection I have to say.
