I’m not confident when super tiny—borderline impractical, really—bags became a point, but these days it appears like Louis Vuitton‘s most common bags get started with word “petite.” And from a value standpoint, these bags also come about to be amongst the most extravagant bags of Louis Vuitton’s existing lineup. Though I definitely have a lust for just about all of these adorable styles, speaking from a price range viewpoint, I can not even really take into consideration adding them to my collection. Even nevertheless, it is exciting to play dress up with these beautiful small ladies, and if an individual had been to supply me 1 on a silver platter, you very best think I would take it. For these of you who can make 1 of these beauties yours, additional energy to you. For the dreamers and the possible purchasers alike, nowadays we’ve got a treat: an in-depth appear at The Louis Vuitton Petite Malle.
Although this bag has been about the block a fair bit—the shape was initially spotted on the Vuitton runway back in 2014—I nevertheless marvel at how attractive it really is. Modeled just after Vuitton’s class trunks, the Petite Malle is just about like shopping for a piece of Vuitton’s wealthy history. Considering that its release, Nicolas Ghesquière has produced and introduced lots of iterations of this common mini trunk.
For Spring/Summer time 2018, the Petite Malle is reimagined with floral appliqués in calfskin more than the classic Vuitton monogram canvas. I like this version of the Petite Malle since even though it is exceptional and unique, it nevertheless attributes the classic LV monogram canvas, which if I had been to be shopping for this bag, would be an essential issue in choosing 1 out! Although I will say the metallic epi leather version is gorgeous as well. The information on this bag are what definitely make all of the distinction. All the things from the calfskin leather trim to the gold metallic trunk hardware, this bag is thoughtfully created and attractive executed.
The Petite Malle can be worn-cross physique with the removable strap, or it can be hand carried as a clutch, taking you from day to evening. Although this bag is extremely tiny, so for most, it will not function through the day. If you definitely want to make it function even though, you can, by placing your ID, credit card and some money in the interior card slot and then carrying your bare necessities. For me, that was a mini notebook + pen, my iPhone 6S (sans case), a lipstick, a tube of Aquaphor, and my trusty Ray-Bans in a thin microfiber pouch. If I had been heading to brunch or spending the day in the city with pals, I could get by with just the under, even though I know most individuals couldn’t carry a bag this tiny for a daytime appear.
The bag is lined in calfskin and attributes 1 interior slit pocket, just huge adequate for cards. General dimensions are four.4″ L x 7.9″ W x two.2″ D. This version of the Petite Malle retails for $five,750 by way of Louis Vuitton.
