Louis Vuitton Cruise Petite Malle

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton just had an amazing Cruise 2017 collection. The theme? Brazil. And what a beautiful collection it is. Though the bags featured are still something that would require research, let me show you what’s up and running on the brand’s website.

You can purchase exclusively only some of the bags on the runway. Naturally a limited edition collection, don’t let it pass you by!

The collection is of vibrantly printed diagonal Epi Leather. And some with a soccer painting – tribute to Brazil’s sport – and honoring tribute to Brazilian artist Aldemir Martins.

Louis Vuitton recently presented their Cruise 2017 Collection at the Niterói Museum of Contemporary Arts in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The sporty collection pays homage to the city’s culture which presents vibrant colors, football and Grand Prix prints with a touch of Parisian flair. The star of the show is the Boombox Bag which is made of the Petite Malle bags which can even play music through Bluetooth. The iconic Speedy Bag features racing prints with Vuitton logo emblazoned on it and comes with a combination of the House classic materials such as the Damier, Epi and Monogram Canvas. The City Steamer gets an edgy update with a variety of pockets and rivets. Louis Vuitton introduces the Football print seen on the Steamer and Twist bags.

It’s pretty clear at one glance where the inspiration for these Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 Petite Malle bags come from. Tropical hues, racing stripes, greens on gold, even those sequinned animal prints. Yes, set against the dynamic tropicality of Rio de Janeiro, these iconic beauties are given the collection’s mandatory flourishes. Definitely fun pieces to add to anyone’s bag wardrobe, the small Petite Malle perfectly encapsulates the legacy of a luxury trunk maker, and is perhaps the closest any of us will own a ‘trunk’ from Louis Vuitton.

If, however, you’re a ‘purist’ and prefer something that comes in the house’s classic monogram, well, here you go. Buffered with bright yellow rubber stubs for a twist that’s both fun and playful, the Petite Malle can be worn across the body (or over the shoulder) with the use of its additional sling, or handheld as a clutch, which is what I would do myself. No word yet on their exact prices (or when each style will hit Singapore’s Louis Vuitton boutiques) so do stay tuned for more updates.

Louis Vuitton’s Petite Malle Bag gets an update for SS16.

The Petite Malle is a rectangular shaped bag that resembles the Maison’s iconic travel trunks. Measuring18 cm in length- the Petite Malle is indeed petite. Made of Satiny Epi leather with a eye catching rippling water print in blue, the bag comes with a long leather strap that can be adjusted or removed and carried as a boxy clutch. The bag features the house’s traditional clasp and a fold over lid top that gives the appearance of a vanity case.

Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag For Cruise 2016 Collection

The Cruise 2015 Collection? You ask…

But, but the Fall Winter 2014 Collection has just been released?

Oh yes, I know what you mean. It’s like going to a restaurant and when the main dish has just been served, they throw a dessert card in your face. Ouch! But that’s the way it works in the fashion world, nothing to do about it.

Please meet the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag from the Cruise 2015 Collection, the evolution version of the Petite Malle Bag from the Fall Winter 2014 Collection. And oh boy, how they altered the design.

The original Petite Malle Shoulder Bag was made to mirror the classic trunks, which is lovely. But the new Petite Malle from the Cruise 2015 is nothing like that. I mean, it still got the iconic S-Lock, but the body has been totally modernized. It’s like a cosmetic box, but a more luxurious version.

While the original version comes with a strap, the latest version is beautified with removable chain straps. It can be changed into a clutch bag anytime, to help you go through the nights, with glam.

Finished with Epi Leather, it’s a true luxury item, make it a part of your collection. This is the first-look, meaning the prices and sizes has not been published yet. More information will follow soon.

Louis Vuitton Grand Prix Petite Malle

Categories:Louis Vuitton

louis_vuitton_grand-prix-petite-malleFirst, the good news. Ahead of its worldwide launch come late November, early December, Singapore is the first country in the world to have launched the Louis Vuitton Grand Prix Petite Malle, which Nicolas Ghesquière created specially for theLouis Vuitton Cruise 2015 collection. Set in Monaco (which explains the clutch’s racing-inspired design), you could say it was launched earlier in Singapore because of our upcoming Formula One Singapore Grand Prix which happens towards the end of this month.

Priced at SGD6900 each, the make and structure of the Petite Malle is the same as the F/W14 ones; you flip the clasp to lift the top, as well as have the option of using it with or without its additional shoulder sling. And as far as the design goes, it’s a combination of the Epi leather and the Malletage print, the pattern first printed onto the leather before it’s embossed.

And now for the bad news. The first 5 pieces that came into Singapore for this special launch have already been sold out, so the only way to get yourself one now is to head down to Louis Vuitton Island Maison Marina Bay Sands and put yourself on the wait list.

The classic House trunk from the 1800s has been zapped into a smaller, more compact version in the form of the Petite Malle Bag. We don’t blame Nicolas Ghesquière for being so upfront about his love for the brand’s classic pieces (and his desire to have them recreated). And in this collection, there’s an array of designs and canvasses (and skins, and…) to choose from! Timeless, indeed. Do you have a favorite among these pieces?

Malletage bags are pieces that don’t need any introduction. They speak for themselves, see?

Louis Vuitton Singapore Golden Jubilee Petite Malle

Categories:Louis Vuitton

louis_vuitton_singapore-golden-jubilee-petite-malleWe all know about the Petite Malle, one of Nicolas Ghesquiere’s key contributions to the quietly revamped French luxury house, that was (and still is) one of Louis Vuitton’s biggest hits, both on and off the runway. Fittingly, to celebrate Singapore’s upcoming Golden Jubilee (or #SG50, in hashtag speak), Louis Vuitton will be releasing not one but two limited edition Petite Malle bags just for the celebrations.

The first one most of you have already seen, in Monogram Canvas, comes trimmed with a hue that I’m calling Singapore-red (officially it’s called Royal Rouge) and finished with gold hardware. Limited to just 38 pieces and priced at SGD7050, you could probably start wait-listing for this stunner of a bag now at LV’s Island Maison at Marina Bay Sands.

The second one is the luxurious red alligator skin Petite Malle that comes trimmed instead in black with the accompanying sling in the same colour. Finished with gold-tone hardware, this particular piece is limited to just 9 pieces (9 being the date of Singapore’s National Day on 9 August). Priced at a whopping SGD48,500 apiece, it’s clearly targeted at the consummate collector that must own every Petite Malle ever made.

For everyone else (and those keen on the first Petite Malle), you can view them all at a special Petite Malle exhibition that kicks off on 3 August 2015 at Louis Vuitton Island Maison, where its craftsmanship will be showcased.
