Louis Vuitton’s #LVMenSS22 collection (also Virgil Abloh’s seventh show) saw fresh new additions to the Keepall family. In particular, the larger sizes like 50B (B for ‘bandoulière’) and 55 took on new forms for the season, each given their own Virgil Abloh 3% twist in the most unexpected ways.
Love a bright pop of fluorescence? That’s where the Blue/Green Keepall 50B (SGD6150) in Monogram Taurillon Illusion comes in. The embossed monogram is given a beautiful gradient treatment, adding a fun and eye-catching statement to Louis Vuitton’s very first ‘soft’ travel bag.
The Silver Damier Keepall 50B (SGD5050) is another stunner, this time given a shiny effect that reminds you of a dazzling disco ball. Classic Damier bags typically come in canvas, but this particular design is fully made in cowhide leather, adding a touch of luxe to the checkerboard print.
For those who love a visual treat, Louis Vuitton has the Multicoloured Keepall 50B (SGD7650) with a picturesque landscape setting on the exterior. The intricate design is created using a jacquard weave comprising 12 different recycled polyester threads, and Louis Vuitton has also added a chunky chain key fob at the side for a cool contrast.
Rounding up the lot is the Keepall 55B (SGD4650) with the irregular Monogram canvas. The pattern seems to have a paint-like effect this time, complete with neon trims and bold coloured stripes that make it a standout piece even from afar.
First introduced back in the 1930s, the Keepall is one of the most celebrated styles at Louis Vuitton that continues to be at the forefront of the French fashion house till today. Love getting your hands on a same yet different Keepall? Just take your pick from the four above.
