Find yourself heading out with increasing frequency and need a new bag for work and play? Check out the Cluny Mini from Louis Vuitton that looks set to meet your needs. Accompanying elements like the thick leather top handle and wide jacquard strap also make it a versatile choice.
Sitting squarely at the intersection of form and function, the sleek and structured Cluny Mini carries several Louis Vuitton signatures. For one, it’s crafted in the iconic Epi leather, with the grained finish making it resistant to scratches and the occasional splash.
Each bag also has a leather key bell (in matching colours, no less), an ode to the house’s luggage-making heritage. And interestingly, the LV initials at the corner come in resin. This keeps it identifiable without drawing attention away from the 20 cm by 16 cm handbag.
The interior design is distinctly functional, with a zipper compartment and flat pocket to keep contents in place. The expandable snap buttons at the side also allow for more space to fit your organiser and stationery.
Priced at SGD3700, the Cluny Mini comes in five great colours, starting with the classic Noir and Quartz. Other fancy names for Louis Vuitton’s Epi leather hues include Framboise (a deep shade of red), Guimauve (delicate pastel pink) and Gold Miel (dark orange-tan).
