The Croisette Bag

Last year in May, Louis Vuitton introduced the Croisette Bag for the first time. It was an instant-hit and we received a lot of positive comments. The Croisette Bag is compact but has flawless functionalities. The design is chic with sophisticated detailing. It comes with a boho-chic tassel, but can be removed if you don’t like it. You can carry this bag for special events or match your casual chic outfit.

The Metis Pochette Bag

But then a competitor arrived in November 2016; it’s the Louis Vuitton Metis Pochette Bag. This bag is bigger, but has the same functionalities like the Croisette Bag – both come with handle for hand carry and leather strap for shoulder carry. The Metis Pochette Bag has a rectangle shape and has more pockets and compartments than the Croisette Bag. While the Croisette is better for casual days or the weekends, the Pochette Metis is a better choice as a workbag or for the busy woman who needs to carry a lot of essentials everyday.

The expansion of the Metis Pochette Bag line

If you look at what Louis Vuitton has done lately, the Metis Pochette bag has been extended from basic Monogram Canvas to Monogram Empreinte and other rare prints like the Monogram Reverse Canvas. The Monogram Empreinte is luxurious leather that changes the look to modern elegant.

The journey of the Croisette Bag was less exciting. Until today it’s only available in Damier Ebene Canvas or Damier Azur Canvas. So what does this mean? Is the Metis Pochette Bag more popular?

Which one is better?

I think each of them have their own style and use. The Croisette Bag is smaller in size and has less compartments but it’s nice to wear for the shopping days or at lunch meetings. The tassel is playful and will go well with simple casual outfit like jeans and tee’s

The Metis Pochette Bag is bigger and has lots of useful compartment. It’s ideal for work but can be carried in the weekends as well. It’s a practical bag especially when you need to carry a lot of essentials. The Metis Pochette in Reversed Monogram or Monogram Empreinte creates a different look for different occasions.

In terms of pricing, the Croisette Bag is slightly cheaper, it’s priced at $1590 USD in Canvas. The Pochette Metis Bag in canvas is priced at $1780 USD, but it’s also bigger.

In terms of sizes, the Croissette is measured 9.8′ x 6.7′ x 2.5′ inches (L x H x W) while the Pochette Metis is measured 9.8′ x 2.5′ x 3.5′ inches (L x H x W). So the length is the same, but the Pochette Metis is bigger in height and width because of the extra compartments.

What do you think? If you need to choose, which bag would you go for and why?

Louis Vuitton Alma Bag

Louis Vuitton

CHECK OUT PRICE INFORMATION, SIZE COMPARISONS AND MORE ON ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST ICONIC HANDBAG.

Even if you’re new to high-end accessories, the Louis Vuitton Alma Bag probably looks familiar to you. Not only is it one of LV’s icons, but its signature domed shape is one of the most important designs in modern handbag history. The day version of the Alma as we know it was first commissioned from Vuitton by Coco Chanel as a one-off piece based on the larger travel bag of a similar shape, and soon after the Alma handbag went into production in the 1930s.

Since then, Louis Vuitton has made countless versions, sizes, colors and structures of the Alma, which can make it a little difficult to tell what’s currently available and how much it costs. Below, we’ve assembled Louis Vuitton’s lineup of currently available bags, including size comparisons, price information, modeling shots and the materials you can commonly expect to find.

Blumarine Resort 2018 Collection

Fashion

Anna Molinari, the creative director of Blumarine, created very soft and luxurious designs for the brand’s Resort 2018  collection. Her designs were made to make you feel like a real life Cinderella.

Molinari got inspired by the London-based artist Rebecca Louise Law. She is known for her unique large contemporary installations. All of them are based on a variety of flowers that remind of a fairytale land. Some of Anna’s designs are based on the same concept and you can also see the idyllic blooms incorporated in several dresses.

“I love Impressionist paintings. Roses and violets, embroidered on the finest lace so delicately they look as if they’re actually dewy.”- Anna explains the inspiration behind her latest collection.

The Resort 2018 Collection carries a very feminine and romantic vibe. The collection features pastel colors and soft designs. Bright yellow, soft violet, and baby pink are the colors that dominate in most of the pieces. There is a little hint of dark blue, to keep the balance. As for the fabrics, Anna also went with the most romantic ones. Nice and loving lace in several different types such as chiffon, organza, tulle, and chambray. There are also several sequined pieces representing the edgier part of the collection.

The collection is very versatile. Most of the pieces are elegant but also very wearable at the same time. Anna’s love for dresses is obvious because she included a lot of them in the Resort 2018 Collection for the brand. The dresses perfectly fit the fragile story that the collection brings, and look like they just came out of a fairytale.

Besides the dresses, there are also a few separates such as skirts, blouses, and pants. One of the most eye-catching and distinctive outfits in the collection is the pleated mini-skirt paired with a biker jacket. Both of them carry a very fun colorful print that looks like multiple tiny purple flowers placed one next to another. Additionally, a very striking look is the one that features the asymmetric frilled denim skirt. The skirt is combined with a dark blue sequined sweater and accessorized with a belt in the same color.
