Louis Vuitton x Kakao Novelty Collection

Categories:Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: BAGAHOLICBOY

Just when you thought you had enough of Louis Vuitton’s various collaborations, especially after recent launches with the likes of Fragment, Jeff Koons and Supreme, here’s a really cute one that no fan of the French luxury house should be without.

Not a real collaboration in the sense that there aren’t any RTW, bags or SLGs up for grabs, this collaboration is also only available at LV’s ongoing Volez, Voguez, Voyagez exhibition in Seoul. Fittingly, because it is in Korea, LV hooked up with Kakao Talk and released a couple of adorable novelty pieces that you know you want.

From a pack of 8 stickers (KRW36,000) to large A3 posters (KRW27,000each) featuring various Kakao Talk characters that are frolicking amongst LV’s trunks, there are also embroidered patches (KRW89,000) and embossed luggage tags (KRW245,000 each) for sale, much like the one above that features Ryan with his very own piece of LV luggage.

The bad news? You can only purchase these merchandise after you’ve visited the exhibition which is at Dongdaemun Design Plaza. The good news? You have until 27 August 2017 to make a trip into Seoul if you really want these fun collectibles. Or, beg any colleague/friend/relative who is making the trip soon, because once the exhibition’s over, they won’t be available anywhere anymore.

CHANEL LONG CLASSIC QUILTED WALLET ON CHAIN

Categories:Fashion

Chanel-Long-Classic-Quilted-Wallet-On-Chain

And when you think you’ve seen it all, a brand-new Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag pops out from nowhere. Yes, it’s a new-new WOC because the shape is different, but it has the same classic look.

Last time the house created an innovative mini bag was the downsized WOC. It looked like a phone holder but its not. The design is quilted, with the interlocking CC logo on the front, just like the Classic Quilted WOC.

If you’ve considered purchasing the Classic Quilted WOC, but always thought that the size was too small, now it’s your chance to grab a distinctive version. We do not know whether this bag will be part of the classic collection, so when this season is over, we might never see it again.

The Long Classic Quilted Wallet On Chain Bag is made with diamond quilting, mini interlocking CC logo and woven leather chain strap, but with leather strap for the comfort. It has the same classic look like the Classic Flap Bag and the Classic Quilted WOC.

The major difference is the size; this bag is taller and can store much more essentials. And even tough it’s bigger, it’s still ideal to use as an evening bag. However, you cannot compare this bag to the M/L Medium Classic Flap Bag, it’s just too small.

Now let’s compare this long WOC to the Classic Quilted WOC. The Classic Quilted WOC is measured 4.8’ x 7.6’ x 1.4’ inches and the Long Classic Quilted WOC is sized 5.7’ x 6.7’ x 2.4’ inches. So here you can see that the long version is taller but not bigger in width comparing to the original Classic Quilted WOC.

Yet, this bag is gorgeous because of the timeless look. We hope it will come back every season just like all the classic designs.

The style code is A84310, measuring 5.7’ x 6.7’ x 2.4’ inches, priced at $2100 USD, €2050 euro, £1770 GBP, $3140 AUD, $16600 HKD, $3290 SGD, ¥16200 CNY, ¥251640 JPY via Chanel boutiques.

And oh, it’s also available in silver hardware.

So what do you think? Is this bag functional and is it better than the original Classic Quilted WOC? Tell us your opinion in the comments below.

Louis Vuitton New Bags – Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection – A Homage To Japanese Culture

Categories:Louis Vuitton

The Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection is the fashion God’s love of Japan coming to life. Nicolas Ghesquière designed this set of Louis Vuitton new bags with only one thing in mind: japanese art and culture. Never have the flavors of Japan ever colored a range of bags in a captivating manner as Ghesquière’s. And we could not be more jubilant! It is no secret that the master designer is in love with the Japanese culture. It is only fitting that he would dedicate an entire fashion range of Louis Vuitton bags to the mystical island.

On a first look, you would only see a wonderful medley of colors and patterns. But those with an eye for fashion and style would not fail to recognize the wonderful style. It is an unusual, yet captivating charm weaved into these bags. The great fashion house unveiled the Louis Vuitton new bags at Miho museum, an hour’s drive from Tokyo. The collection features the typical Japanese themes such as Samurais, Manga, Kabuki, Obi belts. And, of course, the enchanting Japanese landscape. All were designed by the much-beloved Kansaï Yamamoto, with whom the Louis Vuitton designer has partnered up with.

Here are a few highlights of the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway

  • Louis Vuitton Speedy bags that almost entirely discarded the traditional LV Monogram canvas

Louis Vuitton New Bags - Cruise 2018 - Speedy

If you know your handbags, you would be familiar with the traditional design of Louis Vuitton Speedy bags. That means sparse designs against a canvas of LV Monograms. There were a few Louis Vuitton speedy bags that sported this conventional pattern with Japanese-themed designs. Other bags had completely discarded tradition and done more bold, vivid Japanese patterns. The darker, sober colors of LV were seen to be replaced by the more bold colors of Japan.

  • Peeping eyes bags

This was a stunning new addition to Louis Vuitton’s collections. Yamamoto took a very bold step in adding a pair of huge eyes, peeping form the flaps of the bags. Peeping eyes bags include all kinds of handbags – Speedy bags, Petite Malle Cases, crossbodies and so on. The peeping eyes are characteristic of Japanese drama, which involves exaggerated eye-gestures. The addition of such unusually big eyes was a show-stopper. Perhaps it might have been used in this manner for the first time.

  • Japanese lanterns-inspired Bucket Bags

Nothing reflected Ghesquière’s passion for Japan as much as the Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags. These Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags are designed base on traditional Japanese lanterns, and designed with sober Japanese patterns. One of the Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags also stuck to tradition and sported the conventional LV Monogram canvas.

  • Tradition was not entirely eschewed

Louis Vuitton New Bags - Cruise 2018 - Monogram Bags

How could LV leave behind entirely the typical, chocolate-brown LV Monogram canvas? This is the pattern that is the hallmark of Louis Vuitton bags. The Louis Vuitton new bags range also has plenty of bags, designed as per tradition. The LV Monogram canvas features on every type of bag. That means all the classics: Petite Malle Cases, Speedy Bags, Hat Box Bags, Hobo Bags and so on.

All in all, the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection is a daring new reinvention. This is generally expected from an all new bag collection. Chanel and Dior’s had stunning presentations of their captivating designs. After these Louis Vuitton had to do something to outdo expectations. Besides, it was a fitting tribute to the culture and history of Japan. As Ghesquière himself said, “Every cruise collection is a discovery and it’s a game of integrating the culture of the country we are visiting with a point of view that is very French and Parisian.”
