It was a lovely afternoon with Louis Vuitton at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris yesterday. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful city that is Paris, it’s likely that you visited the museum, or at least were recommended to do so. Housed in a former railway station, the museum itself is home to one of the largest collections of Impressionist art in the world. At the Musée d’Orsay, you go for the art, but you stay for the architecture and stunning interiors. And it was that backdrop that made this iconic landmark the perfect setting for Louis Vuitton’s fall 2022 runway show, which was presented yesterday.

Fresh Florals Meet Iconic Monogram, With a Youthful Twist

Nicolas Ghesquiere knows how to wow, both within the collections themselves as well as looking at the presentation as a whole, and this season was no different. Overall, the collection is meant to feel romantic and fresh, described as an ode to the youth. Pieces are unconventional, designed to be mixed and matched, and with a continued focus on movement. This movement is a poetic, artful dedication to adolescence, a vivid and inspiring hope for the future.

As for the bags, there were many, and the most interesting feature a fresh, floral take on classic LV Monogram. What looks like a larger version of the half-moon Loop Bag that was introduced for cruise 2022 appears throughout both in classic Monogram and the made-over floral Monogram. Known for showcasing the House’s savoir-faire, the Petite Malle continues to appear on the runway season after season, and this one was no different. Updated versions are given a small top handle and an extended bottom with a gusseted side, instantly creating more room in the petite clutch. New leather bags round out the selection, which is overall unique and beautiful but still mostly wearable.

There are more serious issues for ex. the war in Ukraine. Despite that this is a blog about purses/handbags perhaps everyone could put aside their differences, for a moment, and consider a donation to the Ukrainians. They desperately need everyone’s help as they navigate through this crisis. 🌹

lmao imagine being so sensitive and reporting every post criticizing you after your first comment only to make another comment to weaponize the war in Ukraine to look like some saint.

Karens gonna Karen I guess

Why the bullying comment? I’m not sure why you feel triggered by me. Your attack is grossly unjustified & slanderous. I’ve never reported anyone for their opinion or criticism of my comments; why would I? I don’t honestly care. You need to check yourself before you assume anything or come for me.

Also, my comment about the War in Ukraine was in response to someone else, but it looks like I’m responding to myself, when I’m not.

Anyway, Sally are people still using the “Karen” meme? Really? It’s so overused, dated & unoriginal, but I guess if that’s all you have… 🤷‍♀️

You underestimate the values of people who follow PB. We have already made substantial donations to multiple aid organisations and most of my friends and co-workers have as well. You may have meant well, but this type of finger-wagging and virtue signaling is unfair to the many people who follow this blog and who have already stepped up.

I don’t underestimate the values of people that follow PB. I have no knowledge that “people who follow PB have already made substantial donations…” as you stated. Hopefully, that’s true & everyone can help, in some way.

Also, my comment was not virtue signaling or finger wagging when asking people to “put aside their differences & consider making a donation”. You read too much into my words. There may be a cultural difference between us & my words were misconstrued. I’m more comfortable speaking in person to ensure my intent & meaning are communicated, but we don’t have that luxury & need to rely on our words. I meant no ill will as my intentions were pure. I wish you well. 🌹

Definitely not a fan of these looks! Tired, old and recycled grandma’s duvet into a hand bag. Or maybe a carpet bag. Mmm maybe this was cool for Sarlet O’hara but not my taste!

I don’t know what’s going on with Louis Vuitton but this looks like it belongs in Target or Walmart. AWFUL & cheap looking

I like florals but those roses in that color palette look…dowdy, IMO. My favorite is the cognac bag in look 2, even though it’s not that different from bags already on the market. To seriously consider it, the materials and workmanship will have to be top notch. I do like the vertical Petit Malle in look 21 but…I haven’t bought a PM yet and am probably not likely to.

Fall may be incredibly dowdy this year. May be war time.

Look #2 is my favorite, too! It’s gorgeous! I like the pastel colors in #13, too. It’s unlikely that I’ll be able to purchase since they’re sold out immediately online. I’m also not that loyal to the brand & don’t have an SA that will contact me. Oh, well! 🤷‍♀️

Agreed! I’m not sure why others don’t like the flowers especially with spring coming soon.

Not necessarily. I loved the Gucci Blooms collection and bought their slip-on sneakers in that pattern. One of my very favorite bags is my Gucci Tian, which is a mixed floral and bird pattern. Not liking these particular floral bags doesn’t mean one despises all florals.

LV feels tired and dated lately. The clothes are more interesting than the bags.

The florals are a hard pass for me. The leathers look like Coach bags. Disappointing overall.

As Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada said, “Florals for Spring? How original!” These bags are boring. If they unlabeled and sold at TJ Max, we wouldn’t even be seriously considering them.
