If there’s one thing to know about Louis Vuitton, they aren’t shy when it comes to monograms, especially since it forms the foundation of most of their bags, SLGs and accessories. And if there’s one other thing that LV is great at, it is the sheer quantity of new designs/styles that come out every month, including the duo that will be covered here today, the Popincourt and the Tournelle.
And while they aren’t exactly ‘fresh off the boat’, they are rather new, with the Popincourt a modern remake of another style that existed previously. Made rectangular like a briefcase but styled in a way that the ladies can appreciate, the Popincourt comes in 2 sizes and a variety of leather trims, each more colourful than the last. Measuring some 32 cm by 21 cm, the Popincourt PM comes trimmed in Marine, Raisin, Red and Taupe Glace, all of which contrast well against its coated canvas body.
On the exterior, you’ll find a zippered pocket that’s perfect for travel as it comes attached with a padlock so that you might lock the contents within away safely (though honestly, I doubt anyone will actually use it for that purpose). Additionally, there are two large pockets for your documents within, along with 2 patch pockets. Big on function and easy on the eye, this is one that works as an everyday tote for work (thanks to an additional strap that’s also removable), or when you need something compact (yet sturdy) on your next flight out.

Next, we move on to the Tournelle PM. Yes, the bag does come in 2 sizes as well, but the one in PM is simply cuter. Proportionally adorable, the classic trapezoid shape is actually inverted; the top part is wider and allows for a roomier (and easier) opening to reach into. Finished with a pair of short handles and an extra long strap, you can wear the 35 cm by 26 cm bag most any way you choose, with trim colours like Brown, Cerise and Noir to pick from.
Both bags have arrived on our shores and are priced at SGD3350 and SGD2760 respectively for the Popincourt PM and the Tournelle PM. In other words, it’s time to head on down to check them out before they are gone, because these days, they do go pretty fast. And if the size/style fits, well, you know the drill. #happyshopping
