If you haven’t met these fabulous five from Louis Vuitton, then it’s about time you get familiar with each one of them, because they are all part of a new generation of Louis Vuitton classics that will withstand the test of time. They are also considered much newer icons of the house today, each coming with their own unique details that makes them standout pieces.
From backpacks to handheld clutches and crossbody slings, there’s something here for everyone, especially with prices starting from SGD980 for the Nice Nano before going all the way up to SGD7450 for the little trunk known as the Petite Malle. You could also consider this a quick refresher if you are familiar with this quaint quintet, along with updated prices in SGD accurate as of November 2020.
Firstly, there’s the Boîte Chapeau Souple MM (SGD3550), a soft and compact version of Louis Vuitton’s hatbox, built to be that fuss-free messenger for you to take with you easily on the go, measuring 22.5 cm by 20 cm that’s more than enough for a day’s worth of essentials.
Then there’s the Nice, LV’s take on the vanity case that’s fast becoming a mini handbag in its very own right. The Nice Nano (SGD980) and Nice Mini (SGD1290) might not have their own d-rings for you to attach a strap, but the Nice BB (SGD1630) comes with a pair of rings, perfect for attaching that jacquard sling or some other fancy straps of your choice.
Moving on, there’s the Palm Springs Mini (SGD2880), a contemporary favourite that won hearts with its versatile appeal, one that can be carried by hand (via the top handle) or as a backpack and even across the body with a quick adjustment of the twin shoulder straps.
Next up, the Petite Malle (SGD7450), a hard-sided clutch inspired by the house’s signature trunks. From the boxy shape to the gold-tone S-lock and reinforced corners, you can call it a miniaturised classic made for the everyday, and Louis Vuitton has gone through great lengths (and quality materials) to make sure that you’re getting a truly unique piece.
Last but not least, the Pochette Métis (SGD2720) is still highly regarded as one of the holy grails of Louis Vuitton, what with long wait lists that still happen from time to time. Very much on point from all angles, the satchel’s signature S-lock closure is a lovely touch on an otherwise casual-looking Monogram Canvas body.
All classics, all icons, so if you’re looking to pamper yourself this festive season you know where to start.
