Having already previewed these babies up close whilst in Tokyo last week for Louis Vuitton’s F/W15 press presentation, I can safely say this. THEY ARE TOO FREAKING ADORABLE TO RESIST. Yes, I’m talking about the new Nano collection, which takes house classics (and a few new bags), places them under Wayne Szalinski’s shrink ray and, you guessed it, shrunk.
And by shrunk, I mean really, really tiny, with each fitting comfortably in the palm of my hand, which should make them around 20 cm from end to end max. 7 different styles are up for grabs (you could actually do it quite literally as well, seeing how small they are), from icons like the Alma, Lockit, Noé and Speedy to recent additions like the Pallas, W and the Turenne.
Available in a variety of colours and finishes (some bags, for example, only come in Monogram Canvas, while others like the Nano Alma only come in Epi), I’ve been told they will be released progressively from 8 July, with more colours added to the collection right up to September or October.
Last but not least, the collection’s prices, which you’ll be wanting to know after you’ve decided which bag you’re getting. Because the collection encompasses bags in either canvas and leather, the price range is pretty wide, from SGD1110 for the Nano Noé and Nano Speedy to SGD1510 for the Nano Pallas and the Nano Turenne. The Nano Alma in Epi is also SGD1510, and moving up we’ve got the Nano Lockit and Nano W that come in at SGD2340 apiece (full leather, that’s why).
So, which one (or ones) do you have your eyes (or is it paws) on?
