Instantly recognizable, discreet, and glamorous in the same moment – there’s a reason why Louis Vuitton bags represent the essence of class. Louis Vuitton, for the last 6 years, has been voted the world’s most valuable luxury brand, surpassing Chanel and Hermès, and it’s because their handbags have gained a reputation of quality and beauty since the French company’s founding in 1854.
Simple shapes combined with high design make Louis Vuitton bags not only gorgeous – they also give true meaning to the word “icon,” with luxury radiating from inside and out.
It’s never all that hard to figure out which new bags Louis Vuitton is betting on. The massive French brand is singularly powerful within the luxury industry, and that means it has plenty of famous friends to rely on when it comes for drumming up pre-release interest in a new design. When the Louis Vuitton City Cruiser Bag appeared on the arms of paparazzi magnets like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift almost immediately after the brand’s Fall 2016 show, we knew it was the bag to watch. Now, it’s made its way into boutiques for the first time.
So now, we want to hear from you: are you digging this latest Louis Vuitton debut? I’m more into it than I expected to be, at least because it feels like its own idea instead of piggybacking off another brand’s success. Too many very high-end designers are guilty of that (occasionally Louis Vuitton among them), and I’d always rather see a brand venture something new than stick with what’s already working for everyone else.
