For his Spring/Summer 2021 show, Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière introduced an emblematic shoe, the Pillow Boot, which instantly became a hit. Now, inspired by the Pillow Boot itself, Louis Vuitton introduces a new line of handbags, outfitting some of its most iconic silhouettes in pillowy, puffy nylon.
New Pillow Bags, New Sustainable Material
The line expands upon the House’s continued efforts of environmental responsibility. Each piece is crafted from ECONYL®, a recycled Nylon fiber, furthering the House’s commitment to a sustainable creative strategy. This unique material is environmentally friendly, but it also provides durability and enhanced comfort due to its incredible lightness.
For this collection, Louis Vuitton chose some of its most beloved silhouettes, like the Onthego, Speedy, and Multi-Pochette, plus a pillow-style backpack. A new classic for the brand, the Twist, appears with a recycled nylon strap. In keeping with the line’s spirit of sustainability, a leather patch, sewn from existing stocks, is sewn inside each model, bearing a signature LV logo. As a whole, the four nylon silhouettes contain 90% sustainably sourced materials, which is a notable accomplishment for the House. Additionally, the Monogram canvas details are made from a pattern that minimizes offcuts.
The collection consists of mostly earth tones, complimenting the puffy nylon material, which is embroidered with the brand’s iconic LV logo and classic Monogram flowers. However, if you’re looking for a bag that pops, there’s also the bright pink Multi-Pochette version. These fun, on-trend iterations of Louis Vuitton’s fan-favorite silhouettes are sure to be a big hit.
