The Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Backpack is the Bag of the Moment

I love it when I’m right. I think most people do–the eventual confirmation of our own certitude about the world is deeply gratifying and almost soothing. Even when it’s just about bags. Today, it is just about bags, and more specifically, the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Backpack.

I liked this bag immediately after it debuted with the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2016 collection, and I had a feeling its popularity would rise steadily over time. LV seemed in no hurry to overexpose the design or push it into celebrity hands, and the simple, sporty modernity contrasted with the traditional monogram felt like a winning combination.

Hate to say I told you so, but: I told you so. The line has expanded in the 11 months since I initially sung its praises, and although all the sizes have enjoyed celebrity interest in that time (as you’ll see below), it seems like the smallest version–the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Backpack–is the one winning at the moment. Both Rihanna and Bella Hadid have carried it in the past week, and I have a certain suspicion it will spread more in the months ahead.

Check out three versions of the Palm Springs Mini currently available, as well as all the other celebrity spottings we’ve made from the line.

So bizarre that nobody is wearing it as a backpack except gabby Douglas… it looks awkward.

It’s a cute bag and LOUIS VUITTON was definitely short of the backpack designs before. Personally I don’t find this backpack that amazing but it’s one of the very few choices you get from LOUIS VUITTON so no wonder it is popular

The backpack just seems to be a basic shape and silhouette and very utilitarian looking. Not anything spectacular. I think that the Chanel backpack is cooler. Not a fan of the reverse monogram either. When I saw it in person on the pouchette metis, my first thought was baby poop. I do, however, love the red and black. Gives it an edgy vibe.

Love your comment mate and felt the same. Baby poop?? Lol but so appropriate indeed. Saw the red and black one at the store in Japan but it looked so cheep and fakish looking. Anyway, one of the staff told me that both baby poop and red and black one seems not popular in Japanese market, but normal monogram has been popular instead.

I don’t find this bag interesting and I wouldn’t pay nearly $2000 for it. In fact it looks like a vinyl bag a teen would pick up in Forever 21 for $20 (no offense to Forever 21 or teens).

Louis Vuitton offers much nicer bags than this backpack.

It’s an adorable sack and Brand Me Now was unquestionably shy of the rucksack plans some time recently. Actually I don’t discover this knapsack that astonishing yet it’s one of the not very many decisions you get from brandmenow.co.uk so no big surprise it is famous

Makes me think of the Ellipse backpack the way it’s rounded at the top

They look perfect for a young lady’s starter designer bag.
