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.

Moynat Petite Réjane

Categories:Other Brands

moynat_petite-rejane-blackBecause sometimes big is not always better, one of my favourite French houses Moynat has recently launched a smaller, or in their exact words, petite version of the Réjanethat’s just 26 cm across. An elegantly beautiful yet surprisingly functional handbag (because, really, she is more than just skin-deep), the Petite Réjane will easily make the transition from day to night with you.

moynat_petite-rejane-blueMore importantly, because only a limited number of pieces are available in new summery hues, you’ll not very likely catch someone carrying the exact bag as you, especially if you are going to have to pay EUR3200 for it. The price might seem high at first, but once you consider factors like Moynat’s emphasis on quality leathers and fine craftsmanship, its limited runs and the fact that you probably pay as much (if not more) for bags from other brands that are as common as the rich Mainlander these days, it’s really not that bad at all.

Visit them in Paris at their flagship along Rue Saint Honoré, or drop them an email with your enquiries. Moynat will take your order and have your bag (or bags) shipped direct to your doorstep.

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?

Fendi #SG50 Petite 2Jours

Categories:Other Brands

With National Day just around the corner, here’s another #SG50-worthy bag that you should most definitely check out. And before you make the face (because we’ve all been bombarded with horrid bags and accessories that have been slapped with the official SG50 logo just to cash in on the celebrations), here are 3 reasons why Fendi’sPetite 2Jours is the one for keeps.

Firstly, the bag’s not mostly red. In fact, as far as its colours go, it’s a gorgeous cacophony of blues, pinks, reds and whites on a black background, with red and white (Singapore’s national colours, for those not in the know) playing only minor roles. Secondly, the orchid print is gorgeous, one that Karl Lagerfeld first introduced as part of Fendi’s S/S15 collection. Thirdly (and perhaps most importantly), this bag will only be available in Singapore, with 16 pieces allotted to our tiny red dot in all of Asia-Pacific.

Priced at SGD3680 apiece, you’ll be pleased to know the Fendi has created a special #SG50 mould that you can hotstamp on the luggage tag, or if you prefer, just your initials hotstamped onto the tag in a variety of colours. Measuring 24 cm by 22 cm, the Petite2Jours also comes with a removable shoulder sling in case you get tired of carrying it by its top handles.

Available from this week at Fendi boutiques islandwide (and by islandwide I actually mean just Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City), it’s also one of those few bags you can use over and over for years to come. Sans that commemorative logo, of course.
