The New Wave Chain Bag comes in two sizes, the MM—on the left—is the bigger of the two, when the PM—on the right—is the small sister version. There had been a lot of thoughts operating by means of my thoughts when I 1st received these bags. For starters, I was shocked at the sheer weight of the bags with absolutely nothing in them at all. The chain strap, logo, and thick leather imply that this bag is not lightweight at all, despite the fact that I discover it so fashionable that I do not assume I would care how heavy it feels to carry. That brings me to my second point: I totally adore the all round appear of the New Wave Chain Bag. It does remind me so considerably of the Gucci Marmont, which as you know, I lately acquired myself, so I’m not super shocked at how attracted I was to this bag. It was really like at 1st sight for me, and I do not recall lusting right after a Louis Vuitton Bag as considerably as this a single in current years. I would really like to snag this in a single of the vibrant colors for a enjoyable pop to my usually neutral outfits.

Each of these bags are crafted of smooth calfskin leather, which felt soft, luxurious and precisely what you would anticipate of a higher-good quality designer bag, even though the quilting tends to make the leather thick and a small bit bulky, which certainly contributes to the all round weight of the bag. Aesthetically, I really like the prime manage strap which reads “Vuitton” in rainbow lettering. This brings me back to the pre-Nicolas Ghesquiere era, when rainbow tones went hand-in-hand with Louis Vuitton monogram.

Although the rainbow prime manage is a focal point for me as it adds a pop of enjoyable to this leather bag, it is entirely removable, so if it is deterring you from genuinely liking this bag, do not let it! This bag can also be carried with just the chain strap, which you can put on either cross-physique, extended more than the shoulder, or doubled for a shorter more than-the-shoulder appear. The chain strap also characteristics a padded leather panel, which is certainly an added bonus, offered the weight of this bag all round.

General, this bag is super structured, which you could not anticipate from a quilted leather bag, but it does not have considerably give to it at all, and that is exactly where this bag genuinely differs from the Gucci Marmont. It holds its shape no matter if it is absolutely empty or entirely complete. Based on which colour you pick out, the hardware is either a brushed, muted gold, like on the black New Wave MM we shot, or it is an aged silver tone, like on the pink PM and red MM we took a appear at. I’m not confident I like the modify in hardware tones—I discover myself pondering I would like the red much more if its hardware had been gold, and I do not assume I would be as picky if the complete collection featured just silver accents. Inside, this bag is lined in microfiber and characteristics a single interior slit pocket. General dimensions of the New Wave Chain PM are eight.2″ L x five.1″ H x two.5″ D, which retails for $1,990 by way of Louis Vuitton, when the New Wave Chain MM measures in at 9.8″ L x five.9″ H x two.9″ D, and retails for $two,270 by way of Louis Vuitton.
