Louis Vuitton Monogram Eclipse: Travel With Horizon

Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: JSK FOR LOUIS VUITTON

The Horizon, also known as the luxurious rolling luggage designed by Marc Newson for Louis Vuitton, is quite simply a sight to behold inMonogram Eclipse. Basically the Black/Grey rendition of Monogram Canvas(you would know this if you’ve read the first and second posts of this series), you could say it has come full circle as far the Horizon is concerned.

In honour of his late father Louis Vuitton, who started the business making travelling trunks for the crème de la crème of society, Georges Vuitton created and dedicated the Monogram Canvas pattern to him all those years ago. Today, it continues to adorn the luggage pieces of modern travellers, with this being one of them.

Only available in size 55 as far as the Horizon in Monogram Eclipse is concerned, it’s only an ultra-light piece of the luggage, the SGD4250luggage measuring some 55 cm by 39 cm by 21 cm is also the ideal carry-on size for most airlines. Framed by a cane handle that tucks away completely when not in use, the larger than normal handle isn’t big just from a design perspective, it also allows for eased manoeuvrability. And with the 4 compact wheels at the bottom, moving from point to point within the airport (even if you’re in hurry and with a full luggage) would be easy.

On the inside you’ll find generous compartments that are also flat, which is possible only because the cane handle is positioned at the sides and not in the middle like most other four-wheeled luggages. Finished with a pull zipper closure padlock system that’s also TSA-approved, this is the perfect carry-on for the executive on the go, shuttling from city to city on an almost weekly basis.

For this, and more pieces from the Monogram Eclipse collection, you can follow this link to have a look. Better yet, pop into Louis Vuitton boutiques across the island, including ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Ngee Ann City to see how tradition and modernity have combined to culminate in the most beautiful effect.

Louis Vuitton

louis-vuitton-louise-chain-trunk-flower-bag

The Louis Vuitton Louise Chain Bag is one of the most-wanted handbags on the fashion world.

The story actually started with the Louis Vuitton Louise Bag, the original version. This version was made with a leather strap and became a very popular bag in very short time.

After that, the French fashion house introduces the Louis Vuitton Louise Chain Bag – the leather strap was switched and replaced with the chain strap to create a more luxurious appeal. And it was good choice indeed.

Take a look at the latest edition of the Louise Chain Bag; the design is more sophisticated. Crafted with perforations, stitching and 550 bicolor metal studs, representing the elegant floral design of the Louise Trunk Blossom and inspired by an antique trunk belonging to the Vuitton family, this is a real masterpiece of craftsmanship.

Sling this on your shoulder and tell others the story of this bag. Flaunting is effortless because the leather coated LV clasp will do its job.

The interior is made with one large compartment, zipped pocket and a flat pocket. Measuring 9.1’ x 6.3’ x 1.6’ inches, priced at $3300 USD, €2300 euro, £2140 GBP

LOUIS VUITTON SPRING SUMMER 2017 RUNWAY BAG COLLECTION

Louis Vuitton


Africa, as the home of modern civilisation, is the inspiration for Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2017 collection. It is also a metaphor - of a return to roots, to heritage, to formative influences, to the blueprint. Asserting your identity.
These themes are explored literally and figuratively. Africa is constantly present, a heartbeat under the collection, combined with the rebellion of London Punk and the emblematic savoir-faire of the Maison. By its very nature, the journey between these different destinations and influences evokes the spirit of travel, which is the very essence - the blueprint - of Louis Vuitton.
Africa is evoked through rich, intricate textile treatments, exotic skins, a menagerie of animal prints. In a continuation of his first Louis Vuitton show about his childhood in Kenya and Bostwana, Kim Jones, Men’s Artistic Director revisits Africa today, expressing notions of the safari and the gentleman traveller. The palette is dominated by Savannah-bleached shades; jackets have Saharienne detailing.
“There’s always something a little London hidden somewhere, though. This time it is the influence of Punk - albeit via Africa, where Frank Marshall’s “Renegades” portrait series of Botswana biker gangs in heavy leather depicts the fusion of two disparate aesthetics. Add a third, the French elegance of Louis Vuitton.“ says Kim Jones.

Punk brings edge, transparent rubber, mohair, zips and straps, all infused with African pattern and finished with the Maison’s unique techniques. Louis Vuitton’s second commission with Jake and Dinos Chapman surrenders four prints depicting twisted animals; their veldt is the Vuitton Monogram. Mohair is knitted to imitate animal markings, and zebra patterns are colored in a petroleum blue. Footwear especially draws on Punk themes, parachute straps forming sandal designs and crepe soles added to laced brogues.
There are unexpected connections between these elements. The utilitarian details of Punk tie the movement to Vuitton’s heritage as a trunk-maker, a practical streak; tartan walks hand-in-hand with Maasai checks; the hand crafts of Africa link to French savoir-faire. Textiles are intricately realised: multi-coloured, paper-thin leather is woven like baskets; while a mesh is hand-wrapped with strips of Monogram in a quartet of colours, four Vuitton patterns creating a fifth, the Karakoram design. Exotic skins are vital - connecting Africa to Paris, while the biker jacket evokes Punk. Zips are added to Punk pants; crocodile and ostrich are used for coats and jackets, as well as key Vuitton accessories. They are polymorphs, crossing boundaries and evoking the trio of inspirational starting-points.
The accessories mark a literal return to roots - the origins of the Monogram itself. Two new iterations, the Monogram Savane Ink and Monogram Savane Dune, are based on the blueprints of the toile, trademarked in 1896. The iconic Louis Vuitton Steamer bag, the first soft travel bag, is reinterpreted as a backpack, whilst heritage styles are drawn from the archives like the Randonnée bag, as well as from the leather goods. Original, yet new: all are updated, reinvented, using textiles from the collection to highlight the synergy between clothes and accessories. A series of trunks underscore the themes of the collection, in animal hides and prints or laser-etched with Chapman imagery, like a preparatory drawing for collection’s prints.
Even the Punk’s archetypal dog collar - here the “Baxter” - is a style originating in the Vuitton archives. Its fresh context transforms its perception. That is a summary of the approach of this collection. Travelling back to the blueprint, the essence, using the old to create something new.
About the Chapman brothers
Dinos was born in London in 1962 and Jake Chapman was born in Cheltenham in 1966. They both graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1990 and worked as assistants to Gilbert and George before collaborating in 1992. The Chapmans weave a vast range of associations into their work, using material from all areas of the cultural landscape including philosophical theory, art history and consumer culture. They engage with inflammatory subjects and use subversive strategies to produce works that defiantly refute straightforward interpretation. Celebrated all over the world, the Chapman Brothers were nominated for the Turner Prize in 2003.


The Petite Malle Bag, Dora Bag, City Steamer, Twist Bag, Lockit Bag, Camera Box Bag, The Palm Springs Backpack and prints like the Reversed Monogram, Jungle Dots or the Monogram Chain Flower – we have seen a lot of pretty things since Nicolas Ghesquiere took over.

And so we do have a high expectation for the Spring Summer 2017 Collection and certainly we are not disappointed at all. Let’s cover some important points here…

Most probably inspired by the iconic Trunk, just like the Petite Malle Bag. The first time we saw this beauty, we thought it might be a clutch bag. Small, designed with the classic luggage tag and printed with the Monogram in shiny-effect, this looks like a promising investment.

But by looking further, this is actually a Phone Holder. And what’s even more brilliant is that the luggage tag is used to cover your earphones.

The Phone Holders are available in different designs like the vintage Luggage Trunk looks with black edges, golden hardware and monogram canvas. But they’re available in different colors. So ladies, select your FAVO!

Although its influence today is global, Louis Vuitton remains, above all else, a French house — a fact that we were all reminded of during the label’s Spring/Summer ‘17 show in Paris this week. Held at the future home of the brand’s Place Vendôme flagship, the show looked out onto the storied intersection of that square and Rue Saint-Honoré below, providing the perfect backdrop for what was undoubtedly Nicolas Ghesquière’s most Parisian collection to date. While his Resort ‘17 collection saw him exploring the sporty, seaside culture of Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro, this season saw a more sophisticated, polished lineup from the designer, who focused more on the cuts and tailoring of his pieces rather than exuberant colors and prints (though there were plenty of those too). To wit, there were grey business-like pantsuits featuring slit skirts, cut-outs along the shoulders and open, capelet backs, as well as several tuxedo jackets with smooth, rounded shoulders. In a continuation of Resort’s daring cut-outs, Ghesquière also sliced a number of his looks, revealing an exposed neckline on a sparkly, sheer blouse, or the bare hipbone on one of his slinky, draped dresses. When not doling out glammed-up pieces for the bourgeois, Ghesquière nodded to the droves of fashionable young girls who have recently found their way into his customer base. For them, Ghesquière provided sweatshirts, graphic logo tees, slit leather skirts and skinny lace pants worn under matching mini skirts. In true Parisian style, theses were pieces that didn’t look like they were trying too hard.

Meanwhile, handbags continue to be a strong point for the French house — a tradition that harkens back to its founding in the 1800s.  In homage to those early days, Ghesquière once again called on the label’s iconic Petite Malle, this time reimagining it as a slim phone case that fit neatly into his models’s hands. For those looking for a little more storage space, there were also plenty of other more spacious styles to choose from including the monogram top-handle totes that featured corset-like leather detailing and funky zippered pouches rendered in a checkerboard pattern not unlike the ones that dominated Marc Jacob’s Spring/Summer ‘12 show for the house.

As for the footwear, Ghesquière’s bright, multi-color alligator and python skin boots proved utterly desirable (they’re high vamps and pointy toes made them both classic and sporty), as did the heeled pumps with their black bondage-style lacing. Like the rest of Ghesquière’s collection, they were the perfect balance of classic and modern intrigue.

Instantly in love when we spotted this fresh shoulder bag. We love the details – so complex yet heavenly! The bag is crafted with a checkered design, the handles are gorgeous and the center is made stunningly with the Classic LV lock. Wow, so what is your wish next year?

We love simplicity and this fits perfectly in that category. You see, this bag is fabulous for numerous of reasons. Some ladies don’t like Monogram Canvas and other busy prints, some like simple design yet timeless.

Simple, but the leather looks smooth and nice. It features long handles and zipper on the front side. Perhaps there is a front pocket or it can be used to expand the bag. But for those that like the Neverfull, but want a minimalistic bag, here it is.

Oh yes, the luggage tags are the finishing touch.

Introducing the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2017 Runway Bag Collection. Nicolas Ghesquière presented his edgy and sexy collection at the Place Vendôme, instead of the usual Fondation Louis Vuitton during the final day of Paris Fashion Week. The most coveted accessory in the runway was the iPhone case version of the popular Petite Malle bag. The phone cover includes a key ring and was presented in different materials like Monogram Canvas, Monogram Reverse and Crocodile leather. Louis Vuitton introduces a new color for the Damier pattern, which now comes in all Black and Tan. A variety of bags were seen in the runway with rope like handles. The top handle and flap bags with a lock closure has a striking resemblance to the Luna Bag. Tote bags in different shapes, as well as rectangular clutch bags were also featured in the collection.

Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette and Pallas BB Bag

Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-Mini-Pochette-Accessoires-Trunks-Locks-Canvas-2

You know when you’re invited to a birthday party and you know that your friend is addicted to designer brands. And I can totally understand the frustration of hunting for a present that needs to be correctly balanced between the price and value. It’s even harder if she has bought you an expensive gift for ‘your birthday’ last your and you need to return the favor.

But you can’t buy a Chanel Classic Flap Bag, I mean, that will make her very happy that’s for sure, but then you need to cut a big hole in your own budget. Then you don’t want to bring a key ring or something to her party. But what about the Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette Accessories Trunks & Locks?
First thing first, The Mini Pochette is not just a collection, as we’ve covered some time ago, the Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette is an iconic itself. It was originally made for the bucket bags, but somehow it has chosen to walk its own path. You can read more details about the original version at Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette Accessories.
You see,The design is made by Nicolas Ghesquière, inspired by the Trunk Luggage, a historical and classic bag from Louis Vuitton. If you’ve followed us so far, you must have heard a lot about the ‘Trunks’ design,you remember the Petite Malle Bag?
A charming graphic design on its Damier Ebene Canvas, that adds to its stylishness – the graphic is embellished in the front, making it look like a lock. The Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette Accessories Trunks & Locks comes with a short golden chain. Though it has a small space, but its perfect to hold your essentials.
Louis-Vuitton-Pallas-BB-Yellow
Cute, cuter, cutest. Remember how we responded to the Louis Vuitton Capucines Tote? Yeah, it was a gorgeous bag. The design was feminine and elegant, and I love the way in which you can alter the face of the front flap. But then something else came along, the same Louis Vuitton Capucines Tote but then in a smaller size. The first time we saw it, it was literally: ‘BOEM L.O.V.E’.
The Louis Vuitton Pallas Bag is not a new accessory; The Pallas was made in combination of two different materials – monogram canvas and natural cowhide trim. It was an invention of fashion, a bag that was not only chic but also embossed with the Louis Vuitton signature.
And now the Louis Vuitton Pallas BB Bag, it was just a matter of time that something as gorgeous as this was going to be released in store. It makes fall even deeper in love, see its touch of color and the long shoulder strap; this new addition is designed for the women on go. Oh, and I can think of more than ten occasions where I am always on the go. And I belief (now) you can too.
So pick your favorite interior color (made from leather), the top will make a part of the exterior look. Blend the monogram with red or yellow. The handles are made from articulated leathers, it’s coated with monogram canvas (read more about Louis Vuitton leathers) and calf leather. The interior is secured with a large flat pocket and the exterior with 2 compartments. Measuring 27 x 18 x 19 cm (W x H x D),

Louis Vuitton to Release $54,500 Croc Bag

Louis Vuitton

Just when we thought we’d found all the mind-bending price information we could handle for the upcoming season, Louis Vuitton has gone and reminded us that one of the many internal changes it’s making is adding more high-priced exotic bags to its selection. The Louis Vuitton Crocodile Lady Bag PM, which made its public debut in the brand’s runway show, will retail for a staggering $54,500.

This price information comes to us via ILVoeLV.com, which is a reliable source of intel on Vuitton’s machinations, especially when it comes to handbags. The bag includes two finishes of croc and measures slightly over a foot wide at its largest point. There’s no word on how many of these bags will be made, but it’s likely to be an extremely limited piece. After all, only so many people can afford to buy a bag that costs more than 50 grand in the first place.

On top of that, the bag has a, uh, very specific aesthetic. Most bags in this price range are simply exotic recreations of designs that the buying public has already embraced with open arms, like the Givenchy Antigona or Fendi 2Jours, but this one is an untested bag shape from new creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere’s first collection for the brand.

The bag is easily more expensive than any of the other seasonal offerings we found online, although I’d be shocked if it were made available via Vuitton’s website.
