Flowers are undoubtedly the ultimate accessory. And here to offer a fresh way to wear some gorgeous blooms is Louis Vuitton’s Flower Bouquet bag. From its Fall-Winter 2022 runway show, the quirky creation joins the maison’s range of novelty offerings.
This innovative interpretation sees a bag transform into an eye-catching life-size bouquet. It is brimming with colourful handmade leather flowers that feature the signature monogram. The artful arrangement comes in monogram coated canvas and cowhide ‘flower pot’ that brings to mind the newspaper cone that bouquets traditionally come in.
Besides looking like a beautiful display piece, this unconventional bouquet that will never wilt is also a fully functional bag. Each bag measures 48 cm in height, 13 cm in width and 27 cm in depth. To access the roomy interior, simply unzip the discreet closure on the side. A large main compartment with microfibre lining will fit your phone and daily essentials comfortably.
Completing the Flower Bouquet bag is antique gold-colour hardware and the maison’s signature leather patch. Hand-carry it by its side handle or clutch it under your arm as you would a real bouquet of flowers. Or you could always add on a strap and wear it across the body.
Priced at SGD16,800, the whimsical Flower Bouquet bag is a one-of-a-kind collector’s piece that’s meant to be a keepsake. And what better way to remember the late Virgil Abloh than with this ode of quirky blooms.
