Louis Vuitton. Cruise collection. The best handbags ever.
This chic little bag has a secret: it’s roomier than it looks. The cleverly designed “wave” base provides extra space for storing necessities. The convertible chain handle can be worn cross-body or hung gracefully from the shoulder.
Taking its name from the rue des Capucines in Paris, where Louis Vuitton opened his first store in 1854, the Capucines bag is a testament to exceptional leather craftsmanship. In rare and precious ostrich skin, it combines refined details, including a semi-rigid handle secured by jewel-like rings, with a spacious, functional shape. Its distinctive flap can be worn in two ways: outside to reveal the outline of a Monogram flower, or inside to show the LV initials.
The Petite Malle in crocodilian skin beautifully mixes Louis Vuitton craftsmanship with a bold, stylish statement. Reflecting the Maison’s heritage in trunkmaking, this little jewel is timeless and perfect for day to night chic. The elegance of the Crocodilian skin leather makes it even smarter.
An icon of our times, this city bag is ideal for the fast pace of modern life. Wherever you need to go, the Speedy 25 makes zipping around town a pleasure. Looks great in Monogram canvas.
The fashionable mini size of Capucines BB lends an intense pop of contrasting colors to wardrobe styles from classic to daring. The Capucines BB comes with a removable long shoulder strap for casual shoulder or cross-body wear.
It was a stand-out signature of the F/W 15 runway: Epi Azteque leather, made of Epi denim, introduced with the SS15 show and enriched with a stone washed white color, tattooed with joyfull ethnic motifs. Applied to the Alma, an iconic House shape, the result is a must-have bag that combines Vuitton heritage with Nicolas Ghesquière’s experimental attitude. It may also be one of the season’s most versatile pieces. The color story complements all manner of looks, and the sweet BB size can be carried in so many ways – by hand, over the arm, on the shoulder or cross-body.
The most structured of the iconic Louis Vuitton handbags. The original was the creation of Gaston Vuitton, who named it for the Alma Bridge, a span that connects two fashionable Paris neighborhoods. Shown here in signature Monogram canvas.
