Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Gets a Pretty, Printed Makeover for Spring 2023

Limited-edition pieces Louis Vuitton collectors will go crazy for

Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2023 runway bags are slowly starting to trickle out (more on that later), but if you’re not into carrying around a magnified version of one of the Maison’s most important emblems you may want to check out some of the brand’s other Spring/Summer offerings.

Each year, in addition to its runway bags, which are often more editorial and less wearable, Louis Vuitton releases a capsule collection. These mini collections are typically refreshed versions of fan-favorite bags, usually in Monogram print, often becoming lust-worthy pieces for avid Louis Vuitton collectors. These capsule collections are integral to the brand’s sales, meant to satiate fans and push them to rebuy new iterations of some of the brand’s most classic styles.

Damier Azur, Reimagined

While last year we had the Spring in the City collection, and the year before, we were given the much-buzzed-about Summer by the Pool collection, this year Louis Vuitton chose to focus on a different House staple, reinventing its Damier Azur canvas.

An already beloved choice for the warm weather months thanks to its light hue, this season, Damier Azur is given a bold, printed finish that’s vaguely reminiscent of the brand’s capsule collection from Summer 2018. The nautical-inspired finish is screen-printed onto the canvas, featuring chains and ropes with five different colors. Most prominently, golden highlights are shown throughout, giving a distinctly resort-like feel. Further signifying the bag’s limited edition finishes is the bag’s textile interior, which is also given a printed finish.

The mini collection features a few of the brand’s most popular shapes. There’s the Speedy Bandoulière 25 ($2,150), the Neverfull MM ($2,370), the NéoNoé MM ($2,380), and the Alma BB ($2,100), as well as some other small leather accessories.

This new print looks OK on the NéoNoé and the Neverfull but not the Alma or the Speedy…I don’t think it suits the more structured shapes of the latter two bags. Not that it really matters for me since it’s not my style, haha.

Hi just purchased the NeoNoe in this collection and LOVE it! Lol. Yes it won’t be for everyone but it is for me! 😃I wish it had a little top handle tho. Wearing it in the crook of the arm and having a place to grab the bag quickly would have been nice. I’m waiting for the rain to stop so I can enjoy this new bag! I’m not trying to wait for spring or summer to start sporting it. Lol. It has a little of the old Versace vibe

Okay, a lot of you are hating this but… some of us don’t own LV. LV owns us. 😅 🙋‍♀️ (kidding! Jesus owns me 😊) I think this is super cute and fun for the warmer months! I really want that Alma BB. Really wish LV would make more Damier Azur altogether! I agree with the other commenter that it gives that old Versace vibe.

Speak for yourself! I own several LV bags. I don’t care for this pattern, it’s saying too much.

I am so torn abt the speedy or neo noe. The speedy handles worry me staining etc. I dont get to see in person so makes it even harder. Just luv this pattern.

There is less vachetta (skinny shoulder/crossbody strap) on the Neo Noe so it is more care free. Also you can always switch to a different strap that isn’t vachetta if need be as the original vachetta strap is removeable and in the future, just order the strap thru LV as a “repair part” (or go on Etsy and buy a vachetta strap) Easy fixes for the Neo Noe! 🥰 If you are a speedy fan and just adore speedys, I say don’t let the vachetta handles stop you. There are so many ways around that. You can use Love Handles from Etsy to protect them. I do and they work great! Also you can use a bandeau to cover them as well, and don’t forget Apple Garde to prevent water marks.😃

I love this pattern on the Damier Azur. It’s not to everyone’s liking as LV went out the box with this print. Imo, this print is before it’s time, so people will catch up to it later. This is where “new fashion ” is headed. Uniqueness and not ordinary. I think it is a nice face lift on Damier Azur as it was so basic in Azur. I know many like basic, they want to keep things more classic as it is their taste, which is great. Do you! There has been plenty of plain Azur prints over the years along with other prints on the Azur, and those prints were ok, but not to MY liking. This one IS to my liking! So the moral to the story is there is a little Damier Azur for EVERYONE! 😃 This is my first Damier Azur bag and it’s because of this print. I love that LV went “wild” with this launch! I love the old Versace vibe. It’s art to me and I’m for it! I love being extra! 🤣

The old Versace vibe for this nautical collection is exactly why I really love this design. I can see why it’s definitely not for everyone. So it’s limited Edition, and those that really love it, will buy it. I have been lukewarm about the regular D Azur design, but this is the first limited edition design I’m low-key obsessed with. It is extra, and a bit gaudy, and that’s why I love it!
