Like any fabulous eccentric, former Vogue inventive director Grace Coddington has unique places of intense interest, and one particular of them is cats. As opposed to quite a few fabulous eccentrics, Grace Coddington also has the style business stature to see her interests transformed into luxury handbags, and that is specifically what is taking place for Louis Vuitton Cruise 2019: illustrations of the designer’s two cats, plus one particular of LV designer Nicolas Ghesquiere’s dog, will be turned into vernis leather handbags.
Vuitton’s in between-seasons collections have normally integrated much more whimsical solutions beneath Ghesquiere, but these are the 1st that I can keep in mind that eschew classic Vuitton structures in favor of a complete-on novelty practical experience. And they are not the only weird small bags in the collection runway models carried an inordinate quantity of low, extended, pretty much triangular bags in several Epi leather colour combos, and small box clutches (which includes the Petite Malle) got feather-like leather straps.
On the much more moderate side, the brand also revealed a beautiful Epi bucket bag with the brand’s Twist hardware, as nicely as promo photos of a monogram shoulder bag that forgoes the light vachetta leather for a darker shade that offers the feeling of a vintage piece, its patina currently present. Verify out all the photos we could locate of the collection’s accessories beneath.
