One of the oldest bag styles still in production today at Louis Vuitton has got to be the Sac Plat (GBP700), first launched in 1968 and styled as an elegant city bag that in my opinion is still pretty relevant today. Elegant and handsome all at once, this vertical tote will work well in the office, and is deep enough to hold say, a laptop and other work files.
Measuring a stately 38 cm by 36 cm, on the inside you’ll find it lined with lush terracotta microfiber, along with a pair of patch pockets and a D-ring. Available in Damier Ebene (shown above) and Monogram Canvas, it has come in materials as varied as Epi, Monogram Miroir and the super limited edition one in Murakami Cherry Blossom Cerises that was launched in 2005.
The only downside? It would be perhaps be more functional if it came with a shoulder strap/sling, but then again, it would just probably ruin the aesthetic of it all. Still, it’s a goodie. An oldie, but a goodie.
