If you saw any photos from Louis Vuitton's stunning Cruise 2018 show at the Miho Museum outside of Kyoto, Japan, you probably remember them. The setting was extraordinary, and the collection befit the dramatic surroundings. Of particular interest to LV fans and bag lovers alike were the super-bold bags that graced the runway, many of which were designed in collaboration with famed Japanese designer Kansai Yamamoto. Even though these pieces are part of the Cruise 2018 collection, Yamamoto's kabuki-themed bags are already available for purchase.
These bags come in two types. First, there are the Pochette Kabuki Bags, which are modeled after the tradition's theatrical masks. In addition to those, there there kabuki "stickers" (Louis Vuitton's term—they're not actually stuck on) adorning some of the brand's most popular existing styles, like the Neverfull and Speedy bags. This second category of options is a little more subtle, which gives them a more casual, everyday mood.
Check out all the bags from the collaboration below; the Kabuki theme also extends to scarves and small leather goods, all of which you can check out via Louis Vuitton.
