These days it has become commonplace for brands to dip into their archives for inspiration, and the archival revival trend shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. Sometimes, a revival is given a slight update to modernize a dated silhouette; other times, a re-issue is like taking a step back in time.
Nicolas Ghesquière is one of many Creative Directors who continues to explore the vast historical archives of a brand’s past, and the latest bag from Louis Vuitton is not an exact replica. Rather, it’s meant to feel retro but modern.
Introducing the Louis Vuitton Sac Sport
Taking just a hint of inspiration from House archives, the newly-introduced Sac Sport is described as a retro-chic silhouette that takes inspiration from the archives. Its curved lines offer a vintage appeal, with signature crafted details that add a touch of modernity, like a classic LV padlock and key.
As Louis Vuitton continues to expand its leather offerings, the Sac Sport is introduced in soft Monogram Empreinte embossed leather. The juxtaposition of the casual retro shape with the chic, supple Monogram Empreinte leather makes for an easy-to-wear silhouette that perfectly transitions from day to night.
Sac Sport Size and Price
With overall dimensions of 10.6″ W x 8.7″ L x 4.1″ D, the Sac Sport can hold all of your daily necessities, and the adjustable handle allows for multiple ways of styling. Inside you’ll find one interior slit pocket and a microfiber lining. Available in black and cream, retail is $2,720 via Louis Vuitton.
