A firm believer in collecting iconic designs from your favourite fashion houses? Well, Louis Vuitton’s Capucines is sure to hit the mark.
Most bags in the Capucines family come in luscious Taurillon leather, its grained finish resistant to scratches and daily wear. Signature elements include the trapezoid silhouette, thick leather handle and shiny LV logo encapsulated within the leather body.
This season, Louis Vuitton switches things up by adding the gold-tone Monogram Flowers chain to the beloved Capucines handbag. Delicate house motifs in enamel add a bright pop of colour, each coming in a hue complementing the bag’s colour.

Each size also comes in a unique colour combination. Measuring 21 cm by 14 cm, the Capucines Mini (SGD8750) features a beautiful mix of pinks. Spot Rose Pondichéry Pink/Coquille/Fresh Pink across the bag’s flap, body and top handle.
The Capucines BB (SGD9700) is the next size up at 27 cm by 18 cm, with blue being the central theme. Elements of Tanzanite Blue/Sky Blue/Bleu de France decorate the bag’s exterior, a similar profile on the enamel Monogram Flowers chain.
The largest size is the Capucines MM (SGD10,600) in a combination of Black/Galet Gray/Pearly Cream. At 31.5 cm by 20 cm, it makes perfect sense that Louis Vuitton went with this sedate option. Perfect for work and play, it’s large enough to hold your organiser and iPad Air in your daily commute.
Three options with a brightly coloured Monogram Flowers chain, what’s not to love about the new-in Capucines handbag?
