If you ask me, backpacks are here to stay, with almost every luxury brand under the sun having their very own variations, from Burberry’s adorable nylon backpacks to the ones from Prada that let you carry everything (yes, even the kitchen sink if you so wish to). Then there is this, Louis Vuitton’s take new on the ever-popular Palm Springs that now comes in quilted leather as well.
First made available in coated canvas, the new Malletage leather one is everything a true luxury bag should be, with quilted lambskin on the outside in the pattern of Louis Vuitton’s house icons, finished with gold-tone hardware that’s classy and elegant. Then there’s the padded shoulder handles, the trimmed cowhide and the additional loop at the bottom, which is actually for you to loop your scarf through when you’re out and about.
Measuring 37 cm in height by 24 cm, it’s admittedly a gorgeous bag, one that will take you from day to night, one that you can use on weekdays and weekends, and one that you’ll be using for most any occasion. Heck, even I’m interested, I just need to find out how much it costs now. BRB.
