Lanvin isn’t a company that messes with its stable of handbags often. Sure, seasonal styles come and go, but rarely does the French house launch a new design that will be added to the small group of bags that it produces season after season. Staring with Summer 2011, the Lanvin JL Bowling Bag will be the newest piece on that very short list.

The bag, named for Jeanne Lanvin, comes in several sizes and a variety of leathers and colors right off the bat. The photo above and those after the jump all feature the medium size, but Lanvin indicates that a smaller version, shoulder bag and clutch will also be available. The smaller bowler in black or chestnut leather is already available via Bergdorf Goodman for $2545, and the medium python iteration can be found at Luisa Via Roma for $5950. The rest of the prices for the range have yet to be announced. Check out some more pictures after the jump and let us know how you feel about these new bags in the comments!

    I like the idea of Lanvin making such a structured bag……I think I like it. There is a picture of Emma Stone with the bag that is circulating and the bag is a fairly nice size. *note I believe there is a typo in your article…it should be Summer 2012, right*

    That is a beautiful bag. However, it looks kind of small even though I love a north-south tote. I would need to see it in person.
    That price is a little scary for the leather and the python versions for a design house not known for their handbags.

    different but nice. I love the black and orange.

    I like the looks of it here. I think I’d need to see it in person to decide whether the east/west was too dramatic.

    Not sure of the side pockets – remind me of the Luggage Tote – but looks promising.

    This bag look very vintage, love the python one. Lanvin should try some Limited Edition in Croco too.
