Ever so often, classic bags at Louis Vuitton get a slight update, but for all the good reasons, of course. Taking the spotlight this time is the Twist handbag with refreshing new, well, twists, with the extra leather-and-chain braid detailing. Oozing rock-chic appeal, this added sling certainly makes for a chic hand-carry option, aside from the usual crossbody or over-the-shoulder style.
Also, a full-leather strap replaces the original sliding chain in this update. With a drop length ranging from 31 cm to 54 cm, this elongated sling is designed to sit comfortably all day long.
New twists aside, the bag retains the iconic twist-lock clasp which forms a V (for Vuitton) when opened. It becomes LV when you gently twist it back to secure the bag, an instantly recognisable signature even from afar.
Not forgetting the deep-dyed Epi cowhide leather that forms the exterior, its grained finish keeping the Twist resistant to daily wear and the occasional splash. Colour options include Quartz White and Noir, which come with gold-tone hardware.
This updated format will come in Twist PM (19 cm by 15 cm) and Twist MM (23 cm by 17 cm). Retailing at SGD6500 and SGD6900 respectively, these new Twist bags feature enough twists to keep you interested. And perhaps, a new bag for your collection?
