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.

Louis Vuitton New Epi Saint Cloud

Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

When it comes to Louis Vuitton’s countless bag styles, what truly sets them apart from one another? Is it the shape? The colour? The size? One thing’s for sure, if you love it at first sight, the bag’s won half the battle, with the other remaining factors typically boiling down to its hip factor, functionality and price. The new Epi Saint Cloud has certainly won us over in its good looks, a girly-girl bag that looks every bit Louis Vuitton, thanks to the full Epi body. Inspired by a vintage piece that first came out in the 90s, there are differences that give it a fresh update and enough reasons to love.

For one, the inverted horseshoe ring is still present, with both bags featuring a curved front flap (and body) with LV’s logo stamped on the bottom right corner. But that’s where the similarities end. With the new Epi Saint Cloud, the bag’s silhouette is more pronounced (a sharper half-moon shape) and its Epi body also features diagonal stripes, as opposed to the horizontal lines in the vintage style.

The bag opens via a magnetic snap closure in the front flap (the horseshoe ring is just an additional detail) with an interior that will fit your everyday essentials. And by that, we do mean bare essentials, because there’s only so much the 24 cm by 20 cm Epi Saint Cloud can fit. Finished with a cute leather tassel, it is small, it is cute and it is most definitely lovable.

Available in 5 different colours, from a pale pink Rose Ballerine to the bi-coloured Safran and a Noir that comes with bright pink trim. Rounding off the 5 is a Prune Rose and a bright-red Coquelicot. Retailing for SGD2490, ladies who love a softer canvas body can opt for the Monogram Canvas Saint Cloud that’s priced a tad lower at SGD2190. Not bad, not bad at all.

The Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote in Contrast Epi Leather

Louis Vuitton

FINALLY, THIS CLASSIC BAG HAS SPOKEN TO ME

I have a small confession to make: I’ve never really gotten the Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote. Sure, I can recognize that it’s both a beloved classic bag and a great, functional option for those who need to carry a lot, but it’s never been a bag that sparked much personal interest in me. I’m not a tote bag person in general, so my affections have always run more toward Vuitton’s single-strap shoulder bags and crossbodies. All it took was some pink detailing, though, and I’m all aboard the Neverfull bandwagon.

Part of the Neverfull’s appeal is that its simplicity makes it a perfect canvas for variation, embellishment and seasonal adornment without sacrificing functionality. It’s been emblazoned with everything from Yayoi Kusama’s signature dots to Jeff Koons’s, well…whatever it was he did. The wide open space of a Neverfull side panel holds endless possibility.

With this version, though, the devil is in the details (and mostly inside the bag itself). Louis Vuitton’s hardy Epi leather is usually a single-tone material, but lately, Vuitton has been releasing some of its Epi bags with contrasting interiors and edge paint. The contrasting interior is something I’ve loved since Mansur Gavriel made it its signature when the brand debuted in 2013, and since then, nearly every brand has imitated the look. In this instance, though, LV takes it one step further my extending the neon pink interior to the bag’s edges, which is what I love the best. The move sharpens the lines of the bag’s iconic structure and makes the whole thing feel new all over again. If I were in the market for a tote, this version of the Neverfull would be at the top of my list.

Buy through Louis Vuitton for $2,050. This version is the MM; if you want something similar but with a more subdued color combination, the bag is also available in deep purple with pale pink accents.

Louis Vuitton x Fragment Cabas Light Collection

Louis Vuitton

IMAGES: LOUIS VUITTON

Why Louis Vuitton didn’t launch them earlier still escapes me, but the Cabas Light bags, from the recently launched limited edition Louis Vuitton x Fragment collection, are officially my new favourite bags from the French luxury house. Created in collaboration with Fragment’s Hiroshi Fujiwara, it’s many things most boys will appreciate, from its massive size (50 cm by 50 cm by 16 cm) to the fact that it is extremely lightweight.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Topped with a pair of handles long enough to drape the tote comfortably over the shoulder, open the drawstring closure and reach into its textile-lined interior for the removable canvas pouch that comes with the bag. Available in Monogram Canvas (sorry guys, this one is a Japan-only exclusive), Monogram Eclipse (the one I want) and finally one more in a black textile fabric, the icing on this cult favourite cake has got to be those 4 magic words on the front of the bag, namely Louis Vuitton Fragment Tokyo.

Priced at SGD2860, both the ones in Monogram Eclipse and the black fabric textile are currently OOS, but I’ve also been told that daily replenishments are still happening at the #LVxFragment pop-up at Surrender’s 268 Orchard Road flagship that will end on 7 May 2017. Yes folks, use this long weekend and head on down because you’ll never know if you’ll get lucky and finally get the limited edition piece of your dreams.
