Unfortunately, when it comes to midseason collections, most designers don’t see fit to throw accessory-lovers a photographic bone. Because the shows aren’t held together with any type of unifying event, brands release their own media images instead of allowing outside photographers, and outside photographers almost always do a better job of showing us the bags and shoes. We end up getting the short shrift when all media outlets are given the same photo set.

Because Louis Vuitton is a company founded on leather goods, though, it does a better job than most at making sure that its bags are front and center. We have all of the bags from Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Fall 2011 collection, plus two ornate feather fans that probably aren’t bags but I will continue hope might be until expressly told otherwise. (Please, Louis Vuitton, let them be bags.) Full photos, after the jump.

    The smaller bag … I actually don’t hate it (ipad)

  • Graciella

    Although the shapes of these bags are nice I’m really getting sick of the LV logo, it just isn’t pretty IMO

  • Jelita78

    sorry LV..
    this time, i have to agree with others..
    these are hideous! (ipad)

  • Kellyx

    Love the smaller ones!!

  • papertiger

    Marc Jacobs has been running out of ideas for a while IMO

  • LDJ

    I love all minus to feather clutches. (ipad)

  • pejo

    yikes! fail.

  • Adrienne C

    no feathers for me please (ipad)

  • Staci

    I love them all! It’s nice to see something different. (ipad)

  • Amy

    not a fan! it looks like they had too many ideas and couldnt decide which one to go for and just decided to do everything on one bag! (ipad)

  • carrie

    Well, I just think they look like something you could pick up at a flea market. The shapes are cute though.

  • Robyn

    Definitely not on my wish list this season!!! Go back to more classic looks.

  • Jan

    Seriously? Just yuck!

  • Miriam

    Do not like at all (ipad)

  • Danielle

    I actually like some of these, especially the ones with the handles. (iPad)

  • ninjaninja

    Don’t like the patchwork look (ipad)

  • liz

    Most boring collection yet from LV – *sigh*

  • MsJeanDC

    These look like the hideous patchwork Coach bags. Wrong direction Marc!

    • Amy

      ITA – my thoughts exactly!

  • Leah

    No thank you. These are a little on the tacky side for me, maybe next season! (ipad)

  • Annalisa

    Ok I guess I am just feeling very contrary today, because I am genuinely feeling the total opposite of the other posters…I love these! With the obvious exception of that feathered nightmare, the others are pretty good! I am loving the large satchel with the gray, navy, and teal panels. Perhaps I am just tickled that the season’s colors are the ones I constantly wear anyway. I love teal, navy, plum and gray together. Adorable! (ipad)

  • 19yearslater

    I really like the patchwork. Number 16 is my favorite, I would love to own that bag. (ipad)

  • Raisa

    sorry,no thanks i will pass and pretend this collection didnt exist.

  • Marianna

    Not interested in the least! (ipad)

  • XXAL

    are you sure these are LV bags? look like coach to me.. the shape of the first one with 16 next to it is very beautiful though! would love it more in epi leather.. or some kind of LV leather without their logo all over it.. i honestly hate the fact that LV has these monograms.. the bags are beautiful but it is to the point that everybody buys them for that logo & not the aesthetics of the bag. such a shame for these beautiful handbags.. (ipad)

  • milwifey

    Although not for me, I do think the color combos work. I like the shape of the bags but I do agree with XXAL… they would look more lovely in epi leather.

    • milwifey

      One more thing… these patchwork bags aren’t nearly as hideous as that lv tribute bag. (ipad)

  • reneeo

    Nothing, absolutely none of them interest me. Disappointing!

  • Engrmom

    These bags look like they have multiple personality problem.(iPad)

  • Tonya

    I don’t really like them (ipad)

  • Mochababe73

    I love the last three. Those feathers look like fun.
    However, I have not been a real fan of Louis Vuitton. Nothing of theirs is ever on my radar. (iPad)

  • Vitta

    Don’t find the patchwork and the color pallet attractive at all.

  • greenpixie

    I like the colors a lot, but think I would prefer these bags without the logos. (ipad)

  • mary

    not a fan. (ipad)

  • Megan

    I like the idea- mixing the textures with the same logo. But the actual bags, I think I would pass.

  • sosti

    the smaller bag is OK… the bigger bag is a no-go for me… i like the idea though…

  • sosti

    the smaller bag is OK… the bigger bag is a no-go for me… i like the idea though… (ipad)

  • Joyce

    Back to the drawing board Marc (ipad)

  • Sue E

    I absolutely, positively HATE them all…disgusting color combos and shapes..disgusting! (ipad)

  • spanish moss

    don’t at all care for the mash-up of colors. no way! (ipad)

  • t

    Looks like my grandmother’s wall papers. (ipad)

  • ashley

    Oh LV, what were you thinking! I think I’d love those feather pieces if they were bags though! (ipad)

  • Anita

    I’m not a LV fan at all, but I like the color combos with this collection. (iPad)

  • Cate

    yikes-these are kind of bad (ipad)

  • Melissa

    Not feeling the patchwork. None for me please.(ipad)

  • hikarupanda

    I am so sick of the LV logo already. MJ is running out of idea too I think. (ipad)

  • Jen

    I like the first and the last (ipad)

  • Linda

    I’m thinking, finally a LV bag with some personality. Minus the feathers of course!

  • Cathy Fitz

    These look like unattractive Coach patchworks. But I do like the design of the clutch. Would be great with just two colors – bottom & flap – in leather. (ipad)

  • SS

    Do not want. (ipad)

  • Marnay

    I like the color combo’s but not in such a patchwork kind of way.

  • ChanelAngel

    Eeek!!! Hideously ugly bags LV!!! What happened this season???!!

  • mary s

    all are butt ugly

  • Sara

    very ugly bags…they should try different designs, abandon the logo for a while, let it rest and maybe in a few seasons give it another try..(ipad)

  • Jamie

    YEY! Im so glad I do not have to worry about saving up for any of these bags! They are awful!

  • Connie

    The style of the smaller bag is really nice, but it would definitely look better in a solid color. Not a fan of patchwork. (ipad)

  • Dailyfashionista

    I think I’ll pass this time, not a good collection by the way..

  • Kelly

    omg, i dont want to say this…but its…so ugly :( (iPad)

  • Jennifer

    I don’t dislike them (but I’m not a fan of LV so that might explain why I’m in the minority so far). I wouldn’t buy one, though. If it’s LV you’re trying to emulate, these look like knock-offs. (ipad)

  • Elizabeth

    I have never fallen in love with a LV. This collection is so tacky imo. (ipad)

  • Sherry

    what a beauty (ipad)

  • Sherry

    i love louis :) (ipad)

  • S.J.

    love the three tone color (ipad)

  • S.J.

    i like this collection (ipad)

  • Ruhee

    Oh no! BAD BAD BAD…….(ipad)

  • Kathy

    Awful….so not like LV (ipad)

  • Donna C.

    I like the style of the bags, especially the clutch but I don’t like the mixing of the different textures for lack of a better word (ipad)

  • Stephanie

    Vuitton photos 1, 6, and 8 are okay. I’m not exactly a big fan of LV so I haven’t seen enough designs to compare these to.

  • Nasha sofea

    I like the tote bag LV brand…!

  • ninjaninja

    Ugly but not as bad as Coach’s patchwork. (ipad)

  • ninjaninja

    Hobo look is not good for LV (ipad)

  • nini

    not bad, actually. (ipad)

  • ann

    no blue/teal feathers for me.

  • Beth S.

    Not gonna buy one, but I really like the one with the big 16 on it!

  • Maitha

    way too dark and dull for me. (ipad)

  • Chells

    I don’t completely dislike these bags, but wouldn’t buy one either. (ipad)

  • Patty

    me no like ( IPAD)

  • nick

    HIDEOUS! (ipad)

  • FashionIsMyHobby

    This patchwork pattern looks very cheap! (ipad)

  • louise

    Don’t like (ipad)

  • Justine

    Are they out of ideas??? Why in the world are these bags so ugly?? (ipad)

  • Sarah

    I just don’t like patchwork. The shapes are lovely – they could be gorgeous, but patchwork always looks like someone was browsing the workshop, trying to figure out what to do with the leftover scraps, and then a marketing team figured out people might pay 3x as much if you just stuck them all together and called it LE.

  • Maggie

    Not a fan! (ipad)

  • Lisa

    Not really liking any of these which is a good thing (ipad)

  • Chanelle

    LV is reaching. It seems like they are running out of ideas and are desperately teying anything they can to be “new.” If they want new ideas, they need to do an entire re-vamping of their branding practices and bag styles. They need to play with their logo a little more too. (iPad)

  • Meredith in IL

    I actually want the clutch. I think it’s cute. (iPad)

  • quimerula

    I want them all! (ipad).

  • helen

    The next to the last picture is nice – the one with the dark blue. The others actually look interesting with the purple. I think it would take to take a certain kind of person with some very expensive wardrobe to match those items.

  • helen

    Oh gee – I forgot to mention the ipad. Sorry. But I probably would never own any of these purses because they’re too expensive for me, so I can only comment about them. (ipad)

  • samantha

    i dont like the colors being sectioned off in blocks look…
    they dont blend well(ipad)

  • swati

    This collection just reminds me why i don’t really care for LV (ipad)

  • Bir

    Again with the patchwork, Marc Jacobs sure is in love because he is just not doing the brand or his work in the past justice this is a disgraceful collection .simply ,ugly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Christine

    not a fan of pre fall designs! (ipad)

  • Cheryl

    Not crazy about any of them!

  • Pam

    I love Vuitton, but not these. (ipad)

  • NikolineK

    My wallet won’t get lighter (ipad)

  • Kat

    Marc Jacobs is totally losing it.

  • Kmroboto

    I like these! I think they’re very interesting and if I could stand a bag that had even a little bit of logo I would totally buy #24. (iPad)

  • ninjaninja

    Leftover scraps stitched together (ipad)

  • Sheila

    Love LV but not a huge fan of this new line (iPad)

  • shannon

    dark and not my taste but I do like the dark purple color. (ipad)

  • Nikki_B

    Appears to be very simple for a LV product…and the color scheme is too much on one purse (IPAD)

  • coachwife6

    Not one of my favorite LV collections Iipad)

  • Ellen

    Not impressed at all. (ipad)

  • MizzJ

    Hmm, the clutches are kinda growing on me, but the patchwork theme just isn’t working for me in general on any other bag type. (ipad)


  • Bijou

    i’m not a fan of the different styles all smashed together (ipad)

  • Bijou

    i like previous collections better (ipad)

  • Fiel

    It needs a little more character.(ipad)

  • Ani

    i love lv however, this trifecta going on is not really doing it for me.

  • Lina

    LV bags are so disappointing lately! (ipad)

  • Lina

    They look counterfeit! (ipad)

  • Justine

    Is says to me that OLD people will like this.. (ipad)

  • Sil

    i’d wish the feather fans were bags too! Specially the last one. It kind of looks like it has a round bottom…
    but i’m not very excited about the bags themselves. they look a little boring to me.

  • pw

    i love the three-color scheme, and actually think these are cute. I’m not typically a big LV fan. (ipad)

  • Michelle

    not a fan of any of the above (ipad)

  • Lianne

    I like the colours, but I’m not a fan of the patchwork scheme. Makes it look like the cheap stuff I see at the mall. (ipad)

  • Dominic

    I always thought the LV Monogram looked out of place on anything but their classic collections. (ipad)

  • Sheila

    Not really feelin’ these bags… don’t like the multiple different patches/prints… ick (ipad)

  • Heather

    I think that despite the rich looking materials, the patchwork cheapens the overall impact. (ipad).

  • qudz104

    i agree that the patchwork makes the bag look kinda cheap, but the colors are deep and beautiful! (ipad)

  • beanyce126

    i am not sure what to say about this new patch work by lv. Maybe the clutch will be ideal for me. (ipad)

  • beanyce126

    i do agree that it does look a lil cheezy like vera bradley and coach lol! (ipad)

  • Ces

    I agree; some of them kind of have that Coach factor. (ipad)

  • Cara

    They look like they might be cute – I hoping they bring back the unique speedies! (Ipad)

  • Chic ‘n Cheap Living

    I’m not a fan of the multicolor bags – while the colors are nice individually they would “age” (not make you want to wear it more quickly) the bags (ipad)

  • Jess

    I can’t stand patchwork styles. They’re horrible.

  • Christie

    I just saw these bags in person and they are gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Both #16 & #24; however the ONLY reson you see the navy on #24 is because it’s under lights. In real life the middle and end portion are hard to distinguish. #16 is drop dead gorgeous.

    The clutch is gorgeous too, just beautiful; however the brass plate on the front is large and makes the bag veery heavy.

    I think they are better in person.

  • olivera davidoff

    Louis V has maintained that classic shape again, but utilizing the patchwork theme does not show that the house is willing to push the boundaries to offer unique creations.
