Louis Vuitton is the biggest luxury handbag brand in the world, and there’s no job that counts more in the accessories industry than that of Louis Vuitton’s creative director. For most of my life, that was Marc Jacobs, comfortably ensconced atop the French powerhouse that he reinvigorated with his signature blend of luxury and pop-cultural wit. After the Spring 2014 show, though, Jacobs passed the reigns to Nicolas Ghesquiere, formerly of Balenciaga, and he debuted Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 in Paris on Wednesday.

Perhaps the most striking thing about the bags, and the collection as a whole, is that they’re very clearly not Marc Jacobs. The man and the brand have been so closely tied for so long that it feels genuinely foreign to look at LV through another designer’s eyes. Ghesquiere is more than capable, though; the show’s Mini Trunk bags are my favorite runway piece from Vuitton in recent memory, and the collection as a whole was crisply retro-modern. Check out the full selection of handbags below.

Interesting. It seems as though some of the designs are hermes and chanel inspired. One of the designs is very much like a structured victoria tote, the quilted alma seems chanel inspired as do the vanity case handbags. But in all fairness Nicholas Ghesquiere does a much better version of the vanity case handbag.

I’m not sure how I feel about the one handle on some of the bags. Does not seem functional in my opinion.

Dislike the bags, INTENSELY dislike the clothes…I am shattered, I don’t know if I’m going to get over this..in the past 14 years I have bought at least 22 Loius Vuitton bags, they have been my favorite brand..seriously I don’t know how I’m going to cope…

Take a small dose of Hermes. It’s been known to work wonders ;-). And then, there’s always the next season.

I like the little trunks but the use of the logo canvas feels awkward on pretty much every piece.

not quite sure about the actualy meaning, but marks on trunks were put on by hotel bellboys. they had special signs that told other bellboys wether the customer was generous, stingy, nice or rude. according to the signs they treated the customer
