Louis Vuitton is known around the world for its classic logo print monogram canvas. While many bag lovers, myself included start their premium designer bag collections with a classic Louis Vuitton style such as a Speedy, or a Neverfull, Vuitton devotees know that the brand offers so much more than these well known and ever-popular styles. While monogram canvas is super durable and extremely iconic, Vuitton’s other bags are also incredibly well made and beautifully crafted. This is more than apparent in the Louis Vuitton Capucines BB Bag, which currently has my heart going pitter patter.
The striking details on this bag are what first captured my attention. The shiny gold metal studs are arranged to look like the suns rays as this design was inspired by a majestic sun sculpture which is located at the house’s flagship on Place Vendôme in Paris. This chic design adds a beautiful and eye-catching touch to the Capucines BB bag, which is crafted in full-grain Taurillon leather. The leather is smooth and has a really nice hand, but the full-grain component makes this leather much more durable than a smooth leather bag. Additionally, the bag has four metal feet, which makes this bag pretty resistant to damage while still looking stylish and elegant. This bag can be carried one of two ways—via the top handle strap, or using the longer, detachable strap, which is adjustable.
Inside, the Capucines BB is lined in smooth calfskin leather and is separated into two compartments for maximum organization. There is a zippered pocket on the back interior of the bag as well as a slit pocket on the front interior of the bag. While the top flap of the bag does keep your belongings hidden, there is not a metallic closure or anything of the sort. The flap can be tucked inside or left on the outside of the bag, which changes up the look of the bag. Simply put, this bag is a true showstopper and though this incredibly classy bag just doesn’t fit my current needs and style, I certainly wish it did.
