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.
