LOUIS VUITTON PERNELLE BAG

Louis-Vuitton-Pernelle-Bag-3

A lot of Louis Vuitton latest releases are inspired by the House’s historical events or inventions. This is a great thing because the new handbags will be carrying a piece of this brand’s history. Nicolas Ghesquiere has created the Louis Vuitton Pernelle Bag for the Fall Winter 2017 Collection, which is also inspired by the images from the House archives. This is a luxurious handbag and lovely in every way.

The design

The latest Pernelle bag is elegant, feminine and large in size. It’s sophisticated, but not too much. It’s made with rounded lines and it feels flexible and soft. The iconic lock has been put in the center, but it’s covered by studded leather with the house signature printed on it.

The bag comes with a tag, but the most notable is the large LV signature stitched on the right side. You can tote this bag with double handles, but you can also carry it on your shoulder because it comes with a removable shoulder strap.

The interior

The interior is large because this bag is quite big. Inside you will find one large compartment to get your items structured and a zipped pocket, double flat pocket as well as a secret pocket that an be closed with a padlock.

Made from rich Taurillon leather, measuring 17.3’ x 9.8’ x 7’ inches, priced at $3650 USD, €2700 euro, £2520 GBP, $4650 CAD, $30000 HKD, $4800 AUD, ¥429840 JPY, ¥27900 CNY via Louis Vuitton boutiques.

Louis Vuitton x Fragment Singapore Pop-Up Exclusives

With mere days to go before Louis Vuitton opens the doors to their #LVFragment pop-up at Surrender Orchard Road, here are a couple of things you need to be updated on. For starters, streetwear legend and founder of Fragment Design, Hiroshi Fujiwara, will be in Singapore for the exclusive by-invite only launch party on 21 April 2017. Next, the Singapore pop-up (which will be the second city in the world after Tokyo to launch this special collaboration collection) will also be featuring some exclusive pieces that you won’t get anywhere else. Yes, guys, these exclusives are strictly limited edition and once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Priced from SGD440 to SGD2860, there are 8 pieces in all that will only be available in limited quantities. For starters, there’s the Doudou Louis Bear everybody wants, along with the small Monogram Eclipse Nano Bag (click here to see it in its full glory) that is another must-buy. The other bag, the larger Cabas in black fabric, is limited to just 10 pieces, which also means it will be gone in a blink of an eye. Rounding up the exclusives, there’s the brooch set and carabiner key holder, as well as all the rainbow pieces which include the Hawaiian shirt, tee, bandana set and the bandana stole.

The pop-up opens to the public on 22 April and will run all the way to 7 May 2017, with exclusives and the general collection made available for sale. The only difference? Once the exclusives sell out, they will not be replenished. In other words, it’s time to start getting in line because once they’re gone, they’re truly gone.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Savane Collection

Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

If you’re a fan of the weird and the wonderful, a fan of Kim Jones, a fan of Chapman Brothers and a fan of Louis Vuitton, this new collection, from the French luxury house’s S/S17 collection for the boys, is definitely for you. Simply known as the Monogram Savane collection (Savane being the French word for savannah), it’s pretty obvious to see why.

Filled with beasts that roam the wide open lands of Africa given the #ChapmanBrothers treatment, they look slightly deranged with googly eyes and menacing teeth, which in a strange way, is also why these pieces are so appealing. The other thing to note is the house monogram that’s been given a mini-makeover of sorts. Outlined, instead of the solids we are more used to, it works well on the Ink (a dark blue) or Watercolour (a light cream) that most of the bags, small leather goods and additional accessories this seasonal collection will be made available in.

First up, we’ve got the Louis Vuitton’s classic Pochette Voyage MM (shown above) that comes with a crazed-looking lion on the Monogram Savane Inkprint. Priced at SGD1160, there’s another in Monogram Savane Watercolour print that comes with a giraffe and a rhino, which you’ll see posted on my Facebook page later.

Another interesting beast to consider is this, the Messenger GM that comes with a bug-eyed zebra. Complete with an adjustable strap, a main compartment with a pair of front pockets and finished with a front flap, it’s a bag that’s good for both play and work, provided of course you work in the creative line. Priced at SGD3800, don’t you just adore zebra’s crazily extended tongue as well?

And then there are the small leather goods, of which a small selection is shown above. From the iPhone7 Folio (SGD470) that comes in Monogram Savane Ink to the Pocket Organiser and the PF Brazza in Monogram Savane Watercolour (prices are unavailable as yet), these pieces will all make great additions for fans of Louis Vuitton. Or to those who appreciate quality, great design and a sense of humour.

For those looking for a proper billfold, there’s also the PF Multiple in Monogram Savane Ink, which will set you back by just SGD820. And for the perfect finishing touches, there’s everything from bag charms (or key rings) to a set of coin-like brooches. The bracelet, which looks like it’s inspired by pull-tabs from drink cans, looks pretty cool too. And yes, there will be more updates (bag styles and prices) to come so do stay tuned.

Bag Review: Louis Vuitton Monogram Nano Dora

Louis Vuitton

As you get older like me (ouch!), you will find yourself wanting to carry bags with less weight. A month ago, I went to the Louis Vuitton boutique and saw the cutest mini bags. They are lightweight and easy to carry because of the shoulder strap which works for crossbody wear. Alongside the classic mini pieces (speedy, noe, alma), there was the mini version of the Monogram Dora.

NanoDora1

It is a very cute, structured nano bag. But woaah the price is already at par with that of a regular sized Speedy! Would you rather go with this adorable little bag or would you pay for the larger Speedy? 

The Monogram Nano Dora can fit a card case, your phone, a lipstick, a powder compact, and probably a pair of sunnies, though I won’t exactly push it only because I don’t know how squished it might get inside with all your other things. But it definitely fits 

NanoDora2

I would probably buy this bag if I have a lot of $$$, but hah since I am currently cutting down on the stuff that has cluttered my closet, I will just save my money for something else 

And speaking of clutter, I decided to put up a group on Facebook called THE CLOSET RAIDERS. This is an online bulletin board for everyone to post CLOTHES and SHOES (no bags or wallets please– if you have a designer bag *worth over PhP 10K, send me a PM on instagram.com/shopthebaghag for consignment) that they no longer use or wear. I have a lot of stuff I will post in the next month, after I get back from my fashion week travels. It is a closed group so please ask to be added
