Bagaholicboy News #220 – Louis Vuitton Launches New Epi Colours!

January 18, 2012

If you walked past any Louis Vuitton boutique recently, you would have noticed Epi bags and SLGs in a wide array of new colours displayed prominently in window displays. Recently launched, the current selection includes some new and some classic hues for a total of 13 different colours, and they are (from top down), Fuchsia, Cacao, Gray Blue, Citron, Menthe, Orange, Black, Ivory, Carmine, Bleu Canard, Figue, Marine and Rubis.

The Epi Electric family has also grown, and now includes Noir Electric, Prune Electric and Amande Electric.

First launched in 1985, Epi was originally created and developed to due to the need for having a leather that was durable, yet beautiful to be made into bags for modern day use. Dyed all the way through with a special grained texture that resists light scratches and knicks, the leather is made such that it retains its beautiful colour over time.

Not convinced? Just do a quick search on eBay and you’ll find many beautiful, still pristine pieces, especially from Japanese resellers as the Epi line was huge in Japan back in the late 80s and early 90s.

And if you’re looking to get yourself something in the new Epi colours, you can check out bags like the Alma (which now comes in 13 colours), or something more affordable like the Zippy Wallet (SGD1060) or the Card Holder (SGD280, shown above).

Which is your favourite new colour?
