Mother’s Day is just around the corner. The countdown is officially on, with under three weeks to go before the second Sunday of May. Looking to spoil the important maternal figures in your life? Then turn to Louis Vuitton and the tried-and-tested Alma.
Equal parts functional and versatile, the top-handle bag carries a dome-shape trapezoid silhouette. Opening via a zipper closure which goes all the way around, you can carry it by the dual handles. Alternatively, sling the thin leather straps (that typically come with smaller sizes like the Alma BB) over the shoulder.

Whether you love the signature monogram or prefer the checked Damier, Louis Vuitton offers a great variety of both in its signature canvas material. Other styles include the hardy Epi, Monogram Empreinte embossed leather and shiny Monogram Vernis patent leather.
Not to mention seasonal collaborations like the recent one with Yayoi Kusama, featuring the Infinity Dots and Faces embroidery.
Of course, an iconic Louis Vuitton bag like the Alma is also available in exotic crocodile leather. You’ll find it in the BB size which comes in at 23.5 cm wide and 17.5 cm high. To recap, the PM measures 32 cm by 25 cm, while the MM stands at 36 cm by 28 cm.
Big or small, it was one of Louis Vuitton’s very first handbag designs in 1934, and the perfect gift idea this Mother’s Day.
