Louis Vuitton Monogram Savane Steamer Backpack

Why I haven’t yet blogged about this beast of a bag escapes me, since I did already see it when I attended Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2017 regional presentation in Shanghai last year. Thankfully, I have readers like Jermone Chia who just wrote in today asking for my opinion on the Savane Steamer Backpack, so I thought, why not just do it now?

From Kim Jones’ much-acclaimed RTW collection for the boys, where he collaborated once again with British artists Jake and Dinos Chapman. The end result? A whimsically dreamy collection of wildlife as imagined by the brothers, made up of 5 beasts you’ll normally see on the African savannah, namely the elephant, the giraffe, the lion, the rhinoceros and the zebra.

With each bag or SLG you get a different animal printed on (sometimes 2 if you’re lucky), and with this reinterpreted classic, the Steamer Bag, you get the Elephant. And whilst the original Steamer Bags just come as is, the new ones come with a pair of straps at the back, just so you can wear it comfortably over your shoulders like a backpack.

Measuring some 45 cm by 32 cm by 16 cm, the backpack (which comes in Monogram Savane canvas) won’t be lightweight, and given its size, you’ll just be tempted to pile in as much as you can, resulting in a much heavier bag. With that said, however, this is truly a handsome beast, a collector’s piece if you will and one you’ll gladly have in your own collection for a long time to come. Just watch what you put in and you’ll be fine.

The Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton has served up some great bags as of late. Rapid recall of a few of our favorites: TheDora, The Garance, and The Petite Malle. PurseBop even speculates that the Louis Vuitton Capucinescould reach classic status.

Today, we excitedly introduce a new LV bag with some promising potential: The Louis Vuitton City Steamer

History and Specs

The Louis Vuitton City Steamer first appeared in the Cruise 2016 runway show and received lots of hype immediately after its debut. The City Steamer finally arrived in stores at the beginning of this month, and the buzz still hasn’t stopped. What’s all this talk about? The LV City Steamer just looks a little too familiar…some may say, very Birkin-esque. Before you can decide whether you’re yay or nay on the Birkin similarities, let’s take a closer look…

The City Steamer is a modernized version of LV’s original steamer luggage bag. The bag is very structured and roomy, which make it very functional for carrying travel essentials and other business documents. Adding to the travel element of City Steamer, the bag features an engraved padlock in the center and an embossed luggage tag. Other functional features include a double zip enclosure and a detachable shoulder strap. The City Steamer comes in 3 different sizes, PM, MM, and GM.

Creative director, Nicolas Ghesquiere seemed to carefully design the City Steamer with a clear purpose in mind. Overall, the City Steamer is very sleek, minimalistic, and appropriately functional. The exterior details that are present don’t detract from the bag’s silhouette. The handles have the same attachments as the Dora bag and the gold padlock dangles elegantly from the middle. With various sizes and leather options, the LV City Steamer can hold its own in daytime or evening occasions.

City Steamer vs. Birkin

From first glance, the City Steamer may scream “Birkin”especially if you focus on the gold padlock. However, as far as the silhouette itself, if the City Steamer does mimic the Birkin, it only does so innocuously. The bag’s rectangular shape is fairly common as seen by the structured bag trend this year. It’s hard to decide whether we should have a grievance with the gold padlock or not. Instead of asking “Does the City Steamer look too much like the Birkin?”, a better question to ask is: “Is the City Steamer special enough for us?”
