As promised, here’s another post on Louis Vuitton’s S/S15 collection that features not only a new bag, but a new ‘colour’ as well. Given Nicolas Ghesquière’s update for the new season, he has taken the traditional brown/beige Monogram Canvas and updated it into a black/red combination that’s actually quite stunning. Called Monogram Rouge Noir, this coated canvas will be making an appearance on a selection of bags, SLGs and even shoes, including the one shown above which I’ll get to next.
One of the pieces I fell hardest for when I previewed it last year during the press presentation in Bangkok, it’s a squishy soft-sided take on the Petite Malle which has done very well for the French luxury house of late. Looking almost exactly like its predecessor right down to its leather trim and front clasp, it’s topped with a zip that runs right across the bag for easy access.
Available in 2 sizes (the MM and the GM), the unisex Petite Malle Souple will also come in toile and calf leather, but for now, let’s just focus on this beauty. Besides being easier to handle (it’s squishy, remember?), it’s also a tad (just a tad) easier on the pocket, with the MM and GM retailing for SGD4800 and SGD5650 respectively.
To be released sometime in early March 2015 (late February if we’re lucky), there are only 2 things you need to do right now regarding this bag. Save. And wait list. Which is what I’ll be doing as far as this baby is concerned.
