The iconic handbags of Louis Vuitton are getting a little twist for this season. There is a special collaboration between the Louis Vuitton and Grace Coddington.
Grace is a former welsh model and creative director at American Vogue magazine. She is known for creating large, sophisticated and dramatic shoots. And she has also a big heart for animals, which will be expressed on the handbags
The classic handbags like the City Steamer Bag, Speedy Bandouliere Bag, Essential Trunk, Twist Bag, Petite Malle Bag are all crafted with playful dog and cat animations. Other funny prints are bones and cat playing with the LV logo.
There are also new handbags introduced, these bags will be featured in the upcoming days.
Is the Vavin Bag going to be the house’s next iconic? Because we just discovered the Louis Vuitton Vavin Chain Wallet.
The Vavin Line is new and has just been introduced for the Fall Winter 2018 Collection.
This handbag is named after the subway station in Paris. But it’s not the name that we find attractive, it’s the design.
The Vavin Chain Wallet is elegantly crafted with Monogram Empreinte Leather. It helps you to carry essentials from day to evening (if you don’t need to carry a lot of course).
But we have to focus on the key details, like the smooth leather design below the Empreinte Flap. And also very notable is the golden lock that’s inspired by the Louis Vuitton Trunk.
Below the lock, the house’s signature is printed in small lettering that reads: ‘Louis Vuitton Paris’.
What’s more? The bag comes with chain strap for either shoulder or cross body carry. It’s a new piece, but it’s very timeless looking. And with the Empreinte leather, it’s also a flaunting item.
And by the way, the chain can be removed, so that the bag can be turned into an evening clutch or wallet.
When the flap is opened, you can immediately find the front pocket. Inside there are plenty of compartments like a smartphone pocket, zip pocket and several card slots.

Louis Vuitton launches a special edition for the Fall Winter 2018 Collection. Introducing a seasonal style with mixes of braided handle and colorful leather charm. There are no new handbags though; this unique style has been embellished on existing handbags.
Each of these handbags is created with the same style. Each are boasted with sophisticated braided handles. The braided handles are woven of colored leather strips that create an eye-catching appeal. Each strip has been edge-dyed by hand to lend contrast and depth.
And it doesn’t stop there. To make it more playful and boast the colored braided handles, each bag also comes with a colorful leather charm with the LV logo embossed and a nametag. Both are signature touches.
The design is also applied on the famous Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis Bag.

Are you a calm person? Well, then the Louis Vuitton Surene Bag from the Fall Winter 2018 Collection will match your personality.
The Surene Bag is a new bag and it’s a fabulous. The name Surene comes from Latin word Serenus and it means peaceful, calm and clear.
Let’s look into the details. The Louis Vuitton Surene Bag is actually a Chain Tote Bag. It’s gorgeously embellished with the signature Monogram Empreinte Leather, which is absolutely eye-catching.
It features glittering sliding chain on the top for easy shoulder carry or even hand carry as it comes with two leather shoulder patch for comfort. The gold hardware mixed with classic shades like black or navy are the best combination
This sophisticated bag is actually very functional. So it can be worn for work or after-work, basically it’s the perfect day bag.

Creativity doesn’t need to be a new idea; it can be an old concept but then altered to create new perspective. For example; the Louis Vuitton Crown Frame Bag from the Fall Winter 2018 Collection. This bag is inspired by the Maroquin City Bag from the 1930’s. This vintage Maroquin City Bag is displayed in the Museum of Asnières
Not long ago we talked about the Trompe-L’Oeil, which has been implemented in the iconic bags of Louis Vuitton. In short, the Trompe-L’Oeil is a form of art that changes realistic designs into 3D illusion. In one of the Crown Frame Bag styles, there is a version that’s designed with this beautiful art.
There are multiple styles of the Crown Frame Bag. The Trompe-L’Oeil is my favorite one so far, however there is also a version that’s crafted with a motherboard style (you know, the motherboard of an computer).
We also expect more different exterior designs in the future and we also hope Louis Vuitton will create an iconic style like the Monogram or the Damier Canvas for the Crown Frame Bag. But anyways, while the exterior can be changed, the interior and the critical parts will remain the same. For example, the bag is built with a metallic frame closure, reminiscent of the Speedy Doctor Bag.
The bag is made with trapezoid shape as it comes with a top handle for hand carry and a long mortise leather strap for shoulder carry. It’s a beautiful city bag, just like the Maroquin City Bag. And what’s more, the unique front leather loop on the front can be used to attach small accessories like a charm or an extra mini bag. Or it can be used to hold gloves or scarves.
The inside is made with a double flat pocket at the back and one large main compartment. It’s a useful city bag with sufficient spaces for all your daily essentials.
A new bag from the Fall Winter 2018 Collection, if you have some spare budget left, then perhaps you want to add this Louis Vuitton Drink-It Bag to your wardrobe.
When I spotted this bag, I was like: ‘let me zoom-in to check whether the straw can really be used for drinking’ (lol).
The Drink-It Bag is a statement: anything can be turned into fashion. This innovative soda can is a futuristic piece, but what do you think?
We can buy a Cola Can and turn it into a clutch bag with strap as well, but this Drink-It Bag is more sophisticated than we can imagine. It’s actually crafted with the house’s high level craftsmanship featuring polished metal hardware and luxurious leather trimmings.
The print on the can is well-thought out and it’s a work of art full of details. The front also features S-lock Clasp and it can be opened for storage.
The cord strap is also a luxury piece as it’s made from calf leather. And there is more; the decoration on the can is formed with shimmering Swarovski crystals.
Isn’t this love?
So what do you think? Carrying a can in special occasions can definitely be used as a great conversation opener.
The bag opens with an S-Lock Clasp, there is a small interior built inside. Measuring 3.1’ x 5.5’ x 2.3’ (L x H x W) inches.
Introducing the new addition Louis Vuitton Lockme Ever Bag for the Fall Winter 2018 Collection. The Lockme is a big collection that consists of a tote bag, shopping bag, shoulder bag and even bucket bags.
I absolutely adore the Lockme Ever Bag. It appears to be very much like the Lockme II Bag, however the new curved flap does enhance the feminine feel.
The Lockme Ever Bag is cute and practical thanks to the one-handle for hand carry. It also comes with an adjustable and long leather strap for shoulder or cross body carry.
The leather is durable as it’s made from soft calfskin. We also love the new shape, it’s sleek and structured. The graphic lines on the top flap boasts the modern attitude.
More over, the front features the LV logo in silver hardware for instant brand recognition.
The interior is spacious as it’s built with 1 main compartment, 1 flat pocket and 1 double smartphone pocket.

The Bleecker Box was created in 1998, but then it got discontinued somehow. Louis Vuitton is bringing the Bleecker Box Bag back to live, but with some tweak.
The Bleecker Box in 1998 was crafted in Monogram Vernis. The latest Bleeker Box is available in Epi Leather and Monogram Vernis, and there is more to tell…
The Bleecker Box is a reinterpretation of the House’s historic trunk design. That explains the boxed shape with sharp edges. The iconic S-lock crafted in the center is also inspired by the classic trunk.
Comparing to the 1998 version, the new Bleecker Box is built with a thicker top handle. It also features a chic key belt. And because the bag is quite small, it also comes with a removable and adjustable strap that allows hand or cross body carry.
The Monogram Vernis version is made from patent cowhide leather while the Epi is crafted from grained-cowhide leather.
Open the box to see what’s in the inside. There is 1 main compartment including an inside mirror. It’s the perfect cute mini bag for day to night.

Meet the most glamorous piece in the Louis Vuitton collection. It’s called the Louis Vuitton Box Scott Bag and looks like a cosmetic box – which means not-very-useful for outdoor use.
But wait a minute.
Let’s be creative, shall we?
The Box Scott Bag is a transparent box, made from Plexiglass. The Monogram patterns are embellished all over the body, which makes it very eye-catching.
The details can be traced back to the vintage House trunks like the rich VVN leather that’s crafted on the top with gleaming eye-catching metal. It also features the Trunk S-lock signature, which shimmers like gold.
According to LV website, the Box Scott can be used to hold jewelry or makeup or simple sit atop of a dressing table. But that would be a waste of beauty, doesn’t?
We can turn this Box into a handle bag by tying a Louis Vuitton Silk Shawl on the top of it. First there are numerous of different silk designs available, which mean we can personalize the bag as well. Secondly, not a lot of people will pick up this idea, which means you will be one of the few that will be carrying this box bag in this way.
So what do you think?
Introducing the newest Louis Vuitton Vavin Bag from the Fall Winter 2018 Collection. It’s the latest seasonal piece to keep you happy for the winter until LV comes up with newer designs. We love the style but it reminds us a lot of the Louis Vuitton Saint Placide Bag.
A quick knowledge; what does Vavin mean? There are two possible explanations:
1). Vavin is a station of the subway in Paris. It’s on the line 4 on the 6th and 14th arrondissement.
2). I also read that Vavin means love.
The Vavin Bag is a sophisticated handbag made from full leather. There is blend between smooth and embossed Monogram Empreinte. The Flap is crafted from Embossed Monogram Empreinte while the body is refined in smooth leather.
More over, both of the smooth and embossed leather derives from supple cowhide.
The most important detail is the bold and shiny signature lock. This lock is inspired by the house’s archives, reinterpreted from the classic luggage bags.
Another vivid detail is the leather chain handle that looks both elegant and casual. This leather chain can be adjusted to your comfort.
The supple leather is specially crafted to make the overall style light-weighed. And also, the top bottom is embellished with the house’s logo in small lettering for instant brand-recognition. However, who doesn’t recognize the Monogram on the flap?
This model offers ample space to help you store all your daily essentials. Inside this bag, there is a front open pocket, a main compartment including an zipped pocket.
