While the body is made in patent, the 2 Toron handles are made in normal leather and also in different color. The shade of the handles is careful chosen to stand-out. The padlock is also designed in the same color as the handles.

Because of the colors and leathers, the overall look of this bag just shines. The beautiful sharp pink mixed with black is the perfect mix. This bag also comes with a long leather strap that can be removed. This strap can also be used to carry the bag on your shoulder or cross body.

This Essential V Pochette is purposely made in shiny metallic Epi Leather to help you standout from the crowd. The look of this clutch is modern, classy and will go with almost any evening outfit. The center is crafted with a 3D V logo, which reminds me of the Louis Vuitton twist Bag. The logo is somewhat different, but the design is almost the same.

The V logo is embellished on the slot handclasp. You can slip your hand through this slot handclasp to help you carry this clutch effortless – and all day long.

The Interior

Louis-Vuitton-Pochette-Essential-V-2

The most beautiful part is the interior. This bag opens with a top zipper and there is just one main compartment inside to store your basic essentials. But what I like about this pochette is the clever design to create maximizes the interior of such a small bag. If you look at this Essential V Pochette from the top when it’s opened, you will immediately notice the triangle interior.

LOUIS VUITTON PETITE NOE TRUNK

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-V-Petite-Noe-Trunk

The Noe Bag is one of Louis Vuitton’s oldest iconic handbags. This bag was introduced in 1932 and it was made to transport bottles for champagne vintners. Last time we’ve introduced a new variation of the Noe Bag, theNeoNoe Bag. And today, there is another sophisticated version released for the Cruise 2018 Collection, it’s called the Louis Vuitton Petite Noe Trunk Bag.

The Design

Louis-Vuitton-V-Petite-Noe-Trunk-2

Louis-Vuitton-V-Petite-Noe-Trunk-6

The design of the Petite Noe Trunk Bag is quite sophisticated. The body is not as streamlined as the original Neo Bag because there is so much going on. It’s shape looks like a punching bag. The top part is crafted in fresh Reversed Monogram Canvas while the bottom part is made in full leather.

What’s more? The trunk-inspired S-Lock is crafted on the bottom and reinforced with little gold studs. This bag is chic, but it’s more like urban-chic and it’s a perfect addition to your street wear.

You can tote the bag by holding the short strap on the top, but it also comes with a chic leather strap for shoulder carry or cross body carry. This leather strap can be detached or adjusted.

The Interior

Louis-Vuitton-V-Petite-Noe-Trunk-3

But what’s unexpected is the double compartment of the Petite Noe Trunk Bag. The majority of your daily essentials can be stored on the top, via the drawstring. However, there is a secret compartment on the bottom of the bag and it can be opened with the S-Lock.

The Sizes And Prices

Measuring 13.5 x 22 x 13.5 (L x H x W) cm via Louis Vuitton boutiques. Price is TBD.

LOUIS VUITTON SAINT PLACIDE BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-SAINT-PLACIDE-BAG

Whenever I see this new Louis Vuitton Saint Placide Bag, it somehow reminds me of the Saint-Germain Bag. Both are gorgeous handbags and deserve a place in the permanent collection of the house. For those that are interested, Saint Placide is a station on line 4 of the metro (subway) in the 6th arrondissement in Paris. And this handbag is designed for the Cruise 2018 Collection.

The Design

Louis-Vuitton-SAINT-PLACIDE-BAG-5

If the Saint Germain Bag is too sophisticated, then perhaps the Saint Placide Bag is a better option. This new Chain Bag combines Monogram Canvas with supple and coloured leather flap. The Monogram Canvas body is the signature print of the house and the flap adds an interesting contrast to the whole design.

What’s more important is the gleaming golden clasp in the center. This clasp is inspired by the historic House trunks, which means it’s designed with a classic piece.

The Saint Placide Bag comes with sliding multi-carry golden chain. You can carry this bag on your shoulder or cross body. The flat leather shoulder piece is for comfort purpose.

The Monogram is made from Coated Canvas while the flap is crafted from cowhide leather.

The Interior

This beautiful bag looks small, but it can easily fit a long wallet and other essentials. There is a main compartment inside, but also a smartphone pocket or a zipped pocket. You can wear this piece easily from day to night.

The Size And Price

Measuring 10.2 x 6.4 x 2.8 (L x H x W) inches, priced at $2080 USD, $2650 CAD, €1550 euro, £1450 GBP, $17100 HKD, $2760 AUD, ¥244080 JPY, $2760 AUD, ¥15800 CNY via Louis Vuitton boutiques.
