I love the Petite Malle, Louis Vuitton’s now-iconic hard-sided box clutch that comes with a sling. Inspired by the French luxury house’s heritage as far as its spirit of travel (and their to-die-for travel trunks) is concerned and I’ve also loved almost every interpretation of it, from being clad in Monogram Canvas and Damier Ebene to quilted leathers, each more desirable than the next.
And then there’s this, which is from a new collection called Stickers. Meant to be fun and whimsical, this particular Petite Malle comes covered in printed glossy Vernis with, you guessed it, stickers. Not actual stickers you can peel and reuse (or even peel from a sticker sheet and apply yourself), but comes as part of the print. Which frankly is ghastly, part 50s-housewife, part retro-dinner and all weird.
In other words, do I love this rendition? No.
No. No. No.
But if you have some USD5500 to spare, be my guest, though honestly there are much more classically elegant variations out there you should buy instead.
