It’s been a full month since all of the fashion week festivities started, and they’ve finally come to an end. Showing at the very end of the cycle can either be a blessing or a curse; if what you’ve put together is merely mediocre (or worse, if it’s flat-out bad), critics and buyers are more likely to look harshly on it because of our fatigue at four weeks worth of clothes and accessories. If the collection you’re presenting is as good as beautifully fetishistic Louis Vuitton Fall 2011, though, then you get the glorious distinction of closing out the season on a high note and having your clothes by foremost in the minds of editors.

Vuitton is not a handbag company that I normally look to for my own purchases because of my personal preference toward bags without logos, but its fall accessory offerings were easily some of the best of the entire season. The central idea of the handbag collection was a theme and variations starring the brand’s ever-popular Lockit shape, much like the Speedy iterations that we saw from Vuitton for Fall 2010. It’s an idea that worked well then and works well now, with the disciplined lines of the Lockit lending themselves seamlessly to the upscale kink of the Vuitton ready-to-wear. Let’s not talk about the fuzzy bags and pretend those never happened, ok? Everything else was too good of a distraction.

    Rectangular purses seem to be in?

  • Kris Colvin

    Fuzzy, furry bits and embossed logos = YES for me!!!

  • Lulugurl

    Love 50 & 52!!!

    • Marianna

      OMGosh yes, 50 & 52!!! I think I will be buying my first LV and it will be green croc!

  • eorchid

    31 reminds me of a brown furry monster. Somehow it scares me and I want to pet it all at the same time.

  • Lydia M

    OMG, I want them all (except the furs/furry ones)!

  • joana

    omg, i’m in love with the yellow purse!! :)

  • Austinmamadrama

    The green croc is to die for. I WILL have one of those.

  • Millie

    I want to focus on how gorgeous the green bags are, but all I can think about is how much some of those fuzzy bags look like they’ve gone off. Someone left them in the back of the fridge for too long and now they’re growing mould.

  • sosti

    WOW, i love love love so many of the bags! I am saving my $$ for a new FALL 2011 bag!! some of them look exotic, i may need to sell a arm and a leg! ha….

  • Brandon

    Some of those furry bags look like worn out carpeting to me .. :P

  • Lori

    These are lovely (the furry ones make me laugh, I hope they are not REAL fur). Even the strapless bags aren’t that bad, though I would never buy one. What a nice collection.

  • Joanna

    Finally, quite of few spark my interest!

  • mab

    #3, 21 and 43 catches my attention. simple but elegant

  • Candace

    I <3 the green croc…that shade is amazing!

  • annabelle

    the leather purses are gorgeous! but the velvet ones…i would rather carry a teddy bear around.

  • 19yearslater

    Love them (except for the Chewbacca bags) My favorites are the clutches, even though I don’t use clutches, and the yellow bag. It kinda reminds me of a chic Mary Poppins.

  • Babakazoo

    don’ t the plain leather look like a hermes knock-off??

  • Pam

    Love all but the furry ones. Really like the two tones.

  • marisa

    I like em…LVoe

  • KellyX

    There is a trend this season for oversized change purse/clutch??

  • Chels K

    The fuzz — My god what were they thinking?

  • Stacy

    The only theme I see is that someone at LV likes S&M/bondage. lol. Still not my cup o tea.

  • KaylaNiche

    #6, #34, #52 are my faves

  • Bir

    Sooooooo obvious LVMH wants to be Hermes and wants Hermes !!! A hint to the shadow bags????? And then the fantasy colored croc I feel if anyone ever said let’s make the lobby of the mirage in las Vegas into a bag there it is .

    Having said that the more monogramed bags very reflective of vuittons origin are well tolerable but…… Honestly, not exactly my favorite collection.

  • Bir

    Ooo and one more thing the bags that look as if they were made out of bad shag carpets from the 70s are a shame to this brand that and turning damier into an incomplete argyle again I have to say the truth I hate this collection as much as I hate …….better not say I just do not like it !!

  • edoardo

    I don’t like this collection. TOo “old stuff” nad osmetimes terrible “Like that fake damier with brown and beige…bleah”! However, I’m sure that there’ll be some stupid celebs who will spend thousands of dollars for these terrible bags ;D

  • nappy

    so, vuitton carried off with the ladylike aesthetic that was f/w 2010-11… love the rectangular lockits and the clutches.. i dont think the carpety bags will make it to production (hopefully, if yes, very very limited quantities hehe)… but loving the whole vibe.. marc Jacobs is really my favorite designer ever!

  • Jolly Roger

    Rectangular purses look nice,but the colours are not so good,especially the printed ones.

  • Mochababe73

    I don’t mind logos. But, I still don’t put Louis Vuitton on my must have list. But, I do own the famous pouchette.

    My favorite is the green croc, of course. I also liked numbers 41, 43, and 67.
    Some of them look like really bad DIY projects. The fur ones look as though someone took their child’s old teddy bear and fashioned themselves a handbag.

  • chloehandbags

    Lovely colours – meh designs.

  • Demi

    I like many of them!! The green croc is to die for!!!!
    However, the furry ones are a bit tacky…

  • Cathy Fitz

    Gorgeous! Finally I can say that I like almost every one.

  • Krista

    Drooling over the white one.

  • LDJ

    I love em all except but those furry bags. WTH?

  • Jesus

    Fuck louis vuitton they are suing Nadia Plesner. LV should be boycotted. You should burn there stuff or give it away to the homeless. This is how corporate takes over and stops you from using your rights like freedom of speech.

    • chloehandbags

      LVMH have a lot of dodgy business practices, apparently. :(

  • Joyce

    My favorite bag collection from the design houses shown thus far (with the exception of the furry bags). My favorite collection form them in quite a while actually!

  • Jenny

    Love 51 and 52.. (sigh)

  • Cris

    Love 51, 52, 53 and 77. Wow, gorgeous bags!

  • Maggie

    The colors are so pretty!

  • Roseana

    so lovely the croco leather no 50 and 52……..

  • Urvi

    love love all the croc bags… timeless and stunning!!!!

  • The Fashionable ESQ


    Want/love/lust after every single one (except those furry geometric patterned ones).

  • delaney

    i’m kind of meh about this collection. i do like the white with black contrast, but the shapes and textures all feel a little familiar.

  • roberto
