LOUIS VUITTON EDEN BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Eden-Bag

Which handbags deserve the true title of ‘classic’ or ‘iconic’? First the bag needs to proof it can capture the heart of fashionista’s, then it needs to make us fall in love, and finally it has to be time-tested and survive the storm and rain. The Speedy and Noe Bags are the perfect examples as they were designed in 1930’s.

And well, here’s another one that we absolute adore and recommend. Say hello to the Louis Vuitton Eden Bag. To be honest, we’ve already written a beautiful story about this bag, but it was back in 2013. And for as far as we can remember, the SA has told us the Eden Bag was discontinued back in mid 2015. But yeah, it’s now back and we’re happy.

In this post we will be sharing two things; first we will rewrite the story of the Eden Bag. Then we will also share some old styles of this bag from before-2015. But it seems that nothing about the style has been changed – for as far as we’ve analyzed, it looks exactly the same as the one before 2015.

The release date of the Eden Bag should be in the spring Summer 2012 Collection.

The Design

No doubt the Eden Bag is a fabulous fashion piece and now it has been brought back to life, it can be named a true ‘classic’. The style also reminds me of the Louis Vuitton Pallas Bag – and it’s not the shape or design, but the Monogram mix with colors.

The Eden Bag is built with heritage-inspired details, featuring the classic Monogram Canvas. The style pays homage to the timeless Louis Vuitton elegance. Its sumptuous calf leather is very vividly exposed on the side in your favorite color. The bag is refined with rich gold color metallic piece for the luxury shine.

The handle is inspired by the classic Louis Vuitton Steamer Bag as it comes with adjustable and removable shoulder strap. The front features the classic golden color S lock. There is also an option to replace the shoulder strap with a colorful one that matches to your personality.

The Interior

The interior is made with 3 compartments with zipped pocket. It’s a beautiful luxury bag for everyday use. The interior is big enough for all your essentials.

The Sizes And Prices

There are basically two sizes; we know the PM size has been reintroduced. We’re not sure whether the MM size is released or will be released in the future.

Louis Vuitton Eden PM Bag measures 15 x 21 x 9 cm, priced at $21200 HKD, $3500 AUD, 19700 CNY.

The Louis Vuitton Eden MM Bag measures 10.5’ x 4.5’ x 9’ (L x W x H) inches.

Louis Vuitton Eden Bag Before 2015 Styles

The Eben Bag was an instant hit from the moment it was released. It was obsession on the highest level because it was not only crafted in Monogram mixed with colored leather, but it was also available in Epi leather, including Epi Electric. See here the old-styles:

LOUIS VUITTON CITY STEAMER EW BAG

Mens Bags

Louis-Vuitton-City-Steamer-EW-Bag

The City Steamer Bag was introduced in 2015 as a part of the Fall Winter Collection. Nobody knew its destiny, but Nicolas Ghesquière pushed it to become the house’s next classic bag. Now fast forward three years later, this handbag not only survived but it thrived because of the iconic elements inspired by the house’s historic Steamer Luggage.

The Louis Vuitton City Steamer EW Bag is introduced for the Fall 2018 Collection. It’s not only smaller in size but it has also a different shape.

The Design

Louis-Vuitton-City-Steamer-EW-Bag-4

The Supple City Steamer EW Bag brings casual elegance to the workwear silhouette. It’s crafted with a classic look in single colors. The body is made in grained calfskin to not only give us a luxury feel, but also to make it long-lasting, durable and strong.

It comes with 2 falling down Toron handles and 1 front flat pocket with turn lock and loop for padlock. There is also a nametag attached with metallic LV signature. And another LV Circle hot-stamped signature is embellished on the back body.

The City Steam EW, PM and MM size

Louis-Vuitton-City-Steamer-EW-Bag-8

The Original Shape Of The City Steamer Bag (PM/MM)

The City Steamer in EW size is a style of its own. Let’s do a comparison, shall we?

The City Steamer Bag in EW measures 13.4’ x 9’ x 5.5’ inches (L x H x W) while the PM size measures 10.5’ x 9’ x 4’ (L x H x W) inches. So the EW is evenly tall as the PM size, but its much bigger in width. The bag is also deeper, so it can store much more stuff than the PM.

Now let’s do quick comparison with the MM size. The MM size measures 12.2’ x 10.5’ x 4.7’ (L x H x W) inches. So what’s the conclusion here? The EW size is even bigger in length when comparing to the MM size. The MM size is taller, but the EW size remains bigger in width.

The Interior

Louis-Vuitton-City-Steamer-EW-Bag-3

There is a special security built-in the City Steamer EW Bag – inside you will find a hook to secure belongings. In the interior you can also find a large flat zipped pocket as well as a large main compartment.

The Prices And Sizes

Measuring 13.4’ x 9’ x 5.5’ inches (L x H x W), priced at $28800 HKD, €2800 EUR, £2610 GBP, $5100 AUD, ¥26700 CNY via Louis Vuitton boutiques.
