Fall-Winter 2017 Womens Louis Vuitton: Graphic Flowers

Categories:Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Flowers have this innate ability to warm up the soul and are very much associated with beauty and joy. You receive flowers at anniversaries, birthdays, weddings… the list goes on and on. Symbolising pure bliss with the ability to make any lady smile, with the only downer being the fragility of it all because fresh cut flowers usually don’t last more than a week, especially in our harsh hot climate.

And because Louis Vuitton understands hashtags like #flowersmakemehappyand #ihavethisthingwithflowers, some bags from from their latest Fall-Winter 2017 collection have floral patterns in shades of blue, green and pink (while some others have the same print in black and white) printed on the leather in styles like the City Steamer, the Petite Malle, the Pochette Métis and the Twist. An extension of Nicolas Ghesquière’s runway line-up where ‘the city blends with distant landscapes, the masculine blurs with the feminine, the day shades imperceptibly into night’, it could explain the juxtaposition of the lush colourful florals against the stark graphic monochrome ones.

Dubbed the New Classics, these 4 have also quickly become the French luxury house’s go-to bags for fans, some because of form (like the Petite Malle), others for their function, like the City Steamer. Priced fromSGD3600 for the Pochette Métis Mini all the way to SGD7900 for the handsome Petite Malle, you could also check out the PF Twist Wallet if you’re looking something smaller, with the one in the compact size priced at SGD1410. All of which are either at or will be available at Louis Vuitton boutiques in Singapore soon.

LOUIS VUITTON AIRY V POCHETTE LOUISE BAG

Categories:Louis Vuitton

a-closer-look-louis-vuitton-pochette-louise-air-v-quilted-bag

We’ve previously featured the Louis Vuitton Pochette Louise Air V Quilted Bag and we’re doing another post because we believe it deserves some love and attention. So ladies, here’s another feature but this time we’re going to take a closer look at this beauty!

This latest LV bag features an airy V embossed finishing, reminding V of Vuitton. To achieve this illusion, smooth leather has been embossed witha thin foam backing, securing a light padded result. It might be easier said than done, and we are betting that it has undergone a rigorous process to produce such a beauty!

Now let’s move on to the more detailed look on this LV gem. It features an embossed calfskin leather, which is why it has a smooth luxurious feel to it. The tone-on-tone edge dyeing and golden color metallic pieces makes it all the more chic and stylish. On the other hand, the signature LV clasp in the middle gives it the right amount of fancy. The chain strap is also convenient to use since you can easily convert it from a clutch bag to a n elegant shoulder bag.

Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017

Categories:Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

It’s pretty clear at one glance where the inspiration for these Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 Petite Malle bags come from. Tropical hues, racing stripes, greens on gold, even those sequinned animal prints. Yes, set against the dynamic tropicality of Rio de Janeiro, these iconic beauties are given the collection’s mandatory flourishes. Definitely fun pieces to add to anyone’s bag wardrobe, the small Petite Malle perfectly encapsulates the legacy of a luxury trunk maker, and is perhaps the closest any of us will own a ‘trunk’ from Louis Vuitton.

If, however, you’re a ‘purist’ and prefer something that comes in the house’s classic monogram, well, here you go. Buffered with bright yellow rubber stubs for a twist that’s both fun and playful, the Petite Malle can be worn across the body (or over the shoulder) with the use of its additional sling, or handheld as a clutch, which is what I would do myself. No word yet on their exact prices (or when each style will hit Singapore’s Louis Vuitton boutiques) so do stay tuned for more updates.

Louis 1

Oscar Niemeyer once said that the curves of his concrete building were intended to mimic “the curves that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuousness of its rivers, in the waves of the ocean, and on the body of the beloved woman.” So, Brazil and booty combined to inspire buildings like, say, the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum, used as the backdrop to Nicolas Ghesquiere’s 2017 Cruise show for Louis Vuitton. It’s the third time Ghesquiere has taken his audience on a jaunt across the world – and it feels more fitting for Vuitton than, possibly, any other brand. Louis Vuitton was, after all, founded as a trunk maker (Monsieur Louis Vuitton was also luggage packer to Empress Eugenie, as well as making the trunks) so wanderlust is key to Vuitton’s make-up.

So that’s why we were in Rio de Janeiro, watching girls from Ipanema (and America, and Australia, and Argentina in there case of opening model Mica Arganaraz) walk by. Brazil itself was the inspiration for Ghesquiere, following a trip around the country last year. A visit to the Sao Paulo museum of modern art surrendered works by key Brazilian artists commissioned in the sixties by the French company Rhodia in order to promote synthetic fabrics. France meeting Brazil – just what Vuitton wanted to do. “For me, the main question was how to incorporate into my collection all these elements that are part of Brazilian culture, without forgetting that I am just a visitor who brings his own Parisian and French cultural references,” said Ghesquiere, echoing the aim of the sixties synthetics co.

This show was about a fusing of superlative French craftsmanship with some of the hot colour (and hot bodies) so indigenous to Ipanema, and the surrounding city. “Here in Brazil, especially in Rio, the city and nature are really close to each other,” commented Ghesquiere backstage, dabbing a bit of perspiration off his forehead (he was wearing leather, like many of his models. “It’s really inspiring. I love urban clothes, clothes that wear in the city.” There was a sense of sports to these clothes – fitting for a city currently seized by Olympic hysteria, gearing up for the launch of the 2016 games in less than three months. The sports seemed watery, as waves crashed against the beach below Niemeyer’s museum and models unsalted in a serpentine, sea-swell-y circle out of the UFO-ish building and around an audience of five hundred appreciative press, celebrities and Brazilian clients eager to buy.

What will they be buying? Brief cut-out dresses – apparently layered two-by-two in the opening section, looking like neoprene but actually more practically constructed in stretch jersey. They’ll be buying billowing parks and knitted capes, and maybe short, ruched dresses or gathered tops strung through with drawstrings to pucker into peplums, above covetable skinny trousers and low-heeled boots. And, of course, they’ll be buying plenty of bags – combining bright bi-colour variations of Vuitton’s signature Epi leather with graphic Damier checks, layered and twisted like one of those Niemeyer buildings, albeit a handheld version. There was evena variation on a Petite Malle that wound up half-a-metre wide – call it a Maxi-Malle – tricked out as a modern Ghetto Blaster in acid hues of leather. “The boom-box!” declared Ghesquiere, laughing. “A simple homage to Brazil, how important music is to Brazil, tools that are making music, and movement,” he mused. “Plus, I grew up with a boom-box! And they are actually real boom-boxes,” he added.
