While I wouldn’t exactly call the design revolutionary, the Lockme II BB is a couple of things. For one, it’s quite different from bags Louis Vuitton usually puts out, not exactly runway-ready nor is it something that’s covered in monogram. Not that it’s a bad thing either, I see it as a good in-between, and an option well-suited for those not into looking too trendy or too, dare I say, logo-ed.
Measuring some 22 cm across (it is the smallest in its family of bags, and which also explains the added letters BB on the end), it’s made of soft calf leather and comes with duo slings, one, a long leather one that can be length-adjusted and/or removed, the other, a metallic chain sling that you can use like a top handle (or leave it as a form of decoration).
On the inside, you’ll find compartments galore, from smartphone pockets to those you can slip cash or receipts into, within a textile tone-on-tone interior (in other words, it will be the same colour both inside and out). Priced at SGD3100 (it is full leather, after all), you’ll find it in Rubis (shown above), Rose Ballerine (a really soft pink) or Noir.
And if you like what you’re seeing but wish for it to be bigger, there’s also a larger Lockme II which comes in at about 28 cm across, both of which are now available at Louis Vuitton boutiques in Singapore for your kind perusal.
