LOUIS VUITTON SPRING SUMMER 2018 RUNWAY BAG COLLECTION

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Spring-Summer-2018-Runway-Bag-Collection-7

It’s time to move fashion-forward and prepare for the Spring Summer 2018 Collection. The creative director is moving the brand to the next level by creating royal handbags with some inspired by the house’s archives. The new release will be packed with all types of bags – from shoulder to totes and clutches, so there will be plenty of choices. And here are a few highlights.

Louis Vuitton Leather Duffle Bag

Louis-Vuitton-Spring-Summer-2018-Runway-Bag-Collection-6

Streamlined, edgy and timeless. With a shape and appearance like the upgraded version of the Speedy Bag. The new duffle bag is the next generation handbag. The black shade is a bit deceiving because from distance-observing, you might think that’s crafted from Epi, but its not! In fact, this bag is made from smooth leather.

This bag will certainly hold shape and the gold hardware is what will draw a lot of attention. And don’t worry, you will be able to carry this beauty in multiple ways including cross body. If you take a look at the sides, there are small rings embellished. These rings are made to clip on the leather shoulder strap.

Louis Vuitton Bag Inspired By Hermes Lindy Bag?

Louis-Vuitton-Spring-Summer-2018-Runway-Bag-Collection-33

There is one particular handbag that really caught our attention. It’s either the way in which the models purposely carry it or the design is really similar to the ones we’ve in our mind. Now this is a new Louis Vuitton bag that will be released for the next season. It features a slouchy body with one handle for hand carry. However, we also think that it will come with a shoulder strap (Louis Vuitton always add this options as much as possible). This bag reminds us of the Hermes Lindy Bag because of the shape. But it also reminds us of the Pandora Bag because of the unique drop forward design when carrying. And what do you think?
