How many of you remember the Ambassadeur briefcase from way back when? It came with a short top handle, a V-shaped front flap, and was finished with the S-lock clasp that was inspired by the ones found on the brand’s signature hard-sided trunks. Men and women loved it for its boxy structure, and now it’s finally making a return in a reinterpreted style (and new size) that’s perfect for all your daily needs.
The new Ambassadeur (yes, it’s the same one seen beside V from BTS in the recent #LVMENFW21 show in Seoul) also comes with an extra strap that allows you to sling it over the shoulder or across the body in addition to holding it via its top handle. Measuring 25 cm wide and 19 cm high, this modern interpretation also features a revamped S-lock, now reconfigured as a magnetic closure that makes it really easy to open (and close) the Ambassadeur.
While seasonal variations come with neon elements that add an extra pop of colour, the classic version is fashioned in an all-black look, featuring the Monogram Giant Seal motif debossed on black leather. Even the hardware and straps come in a tone-on-tone colour, so if you’re on the hunt for a full black bag, then this would be the one to get. Priced at SGD4350, the Ambassadeur is now available at Louis Vuitton Marina Bay Sands, with the rest of the boutiques offering it from this Friday (16 July 2021) in Singapore.
