Is the futuristic bag the next big thing? Are we moving that fast in fashion? Well, we know that a lot of brands have started introducing futuristic handbags including Chanel. Now Louis Vuitton is catching this new wave. So for the Fall Winter 2017 Collection, meet LV’s version of futuristic design. It’s sophisticated, robotic and so different (for sure!).

The Design

Did this fresh design ‘WOW’ you when it was first released in the Fall Winter 2017 Ad Campaign or on the Runway? Well, the look is not as chic as the Monogram or Empreinte print, but maybe this design fits best with casual outfits.

The Louis Vuitton futuristic is sophisticated and built with tight lines and streamlined-shape. It’s made from embossed Epi leather, which is strong and luxurious leather. This futuristic print has been embellished on the iconic Speedy Bag, but also on the new-signature Twist Bag. There might be more styles available, but the basic principle of the print remains the same.

This futuristic print is built with multiple symbols on the bag. It reminds me of robots in Star wars and the buttons on spaceship. There is also an L and V logo printed in two separated colors. Some parts have remained the same like the original version like the handles on the speedy, the leather zip and the iconic lock. There is even a side-pocket in the exterior for instant-essentials.

The Sizes And Prices

The Louis Vuitton Futuristic print is embellished on different handbags like the Speedy Bag or on the Twist Bag. Each style has their own price tag.

Louis Vuitton Futuristic Speedy 25 Bag
Size: 5.9’ x 7.5’ x 9.8’ (L x H x W) inches
Prices: $2650 USD, $3250 CAD, €1900 euro, £1780 GBP, $22000 HKD, ¥313200 JPY, $3400 AUD.

Louis Vuitton Cour Marly Bag in PM Size

Whenever I look at the new Louis Vuitton Cour Marly Bag, I can’t stop thinking about the City Steamer One Handle Bag. Perhaps it’s because of the color or the shape that’s quite similar. Or perhaps it’s the studs and the hardware that makes me think they’re somehow related. The Cour Marly Bag is introduced for the Fall Winter 2017 Collection and we think you will love it.

The Design


Louis Vuitton Cour Marly Bag in MM Size

Inspired by the Parisian elegance, the Courly Marly Bag is a two bag in one. Similar to the Capucines Bag, the flap can be positioned inside or outside, which can create a different look. The flap reminds me of the One Handle Bag, which is also made with a leather strap in the center.

The bag has a triangle shape when observed from the side. The front comes with the house’s signature S-lock. There is a key attached to the decorative chain on the side, which is attached to the side handle. This key can be used to open the S-Lock.

The Cour Marly Bag is anything but minimalistic. It’s elegant but also urban, the bottom is designed with little studs and the back is made with a zipped pocket for instant access to your necessities.

You can carry this bag in numerous of ways – grab the handles and tote it, or use the detachable strap for shoulder carry. The shoulder strap is short and might not be able to carry cross body. Furthermore, this bag is made from calfskin with calfskin lining.

The Interior

Because of the practical look and the spacious interior, this bag can be carried everyday. The interior comes with a large main compartment and a double pocket.
