Ever, year, usually in September, Louis Vuitton debuts a new animation print that graces some of its most popular accessories for the holidays. If you’ve been anxiously awaiting 2016’s edition, today is your lucky day! Thanks to our PurseForum members, I’ve learned that the new 2016 Louis Vuitton Christmas Animation Collection is available in stores now.

Louis Vuitton’s history has deep ties in the world of travel, from iconic steamer trunks to modern duffel bags and rolling luggage. The animation for 2016 is influenced by the glamorous golden age of transatlantic cruises, along with the brand’s strong travel heritage. The illustrations feature a couple waiting to board a cruise ship with their Louis Vuitton trunk in tow. This limited edition print layers on top of the brand’s Monogram, Damier Ebene and Damier Azur canvases and comes in popular shapes like the Pochette, Ziggy Wallet, Coin Purse and more.

These accessories are popular among Louis Vuitton loyalists, and the print makes them collectors’ items. Last year’s Evasion Collection was very well-loved on our Forum, and I noticed the brand’s whimsical print had a dominating presence on Instagram. I bet the same fate is in store for 2016’s Christmas Animation.

This collection is not available online yet, but you can shop this limited edition collection at the nearest Louis Vuitton boutique. Check out some of the key pieces below.

This is a complete head scratcher for me. What the appeal?

Mood pieces- if it reminds one of something pleasant, they buy

I don’t get it either. I’d rather see different color versions of the coated canvas than slapping illustrations on top. To me the illustrations are too disconnected with the background and makes the products look cheap. Similarly I don’t get the Gucci Blooms – same idea. But to each their own. Hence the large product offering.

People collect these things in the same way people collect snow globes or stamps or city mugs from Starbucks.

Why are the people white in every version? Couldn’t they have mixed it up?

I totally agree. I make it a practice to never purchase anything with a bunch of folks that don’t look like me.

I currently gain roughly 6 thousand-8 thousand dollars monthly working on the internet. So if you are considering to finish simple computer-based task for some hrs a day from your home and gain decent salary while doing it… Test this task http://chilp.it/8d93f4b

Am I the only one who doesn’t like this because all the people are white?? I mean they changed the colors of their clothes, why not make the people different colors too? 🙁

Its an archive print from Louis Vuitton. From back in time when people weren’t so jolly sensitive and faux outraged by poorly perceived slights.
