If I had to pick just one bag to lust/admire/adore from the Spring-Summer 2013 Womens Louis Vuitton collection, it would be this, the Louis Vuitton Damier Mosaic Enveloppe East-West, with the double p. Measuring 32 cm across by 15 cm, the bag’s body is composed of woven strips of calfskin that are then stitched down, creating the checked mosaic pattern that’s also its namesake.
Lined with silk on the interior that also comes with an adjustable gusset, it’s Marc Jacobs’ nod to the swinging 60s, especially with the bag being in bright yellow and all. A time when ladies would head out with the smallest of purses, carried next to nothing and danced the night away. Which is pretty much what you’ll be doing if you got this bag as well, an ode to a glorious era that has since gone by.
