Pods, cubes, tiny suitcases, what ever you contact it when two cones meet at their massive ends to make a closed shape—on its Spring 2019 runway in Paris, Louis Vuitton did some considering about what specifically a handbag really should appear like, and it came up with some non-intuitive answers, as effectively as a couple of far more apparent ones. It was a characteristically forward-considering method from inventive director Nicolas Ghesquiere, who’s amongst the finest in the organization at creating customer goods that are aesthetically difficult with out
My individual favourite bag from the collection was the mini suitcase, which is a clever notion no matter who tends to make it, but particularly when it really is a legendary travel brand like Vuitton. Handbags are basically tiny day-to-day luggage, and creating that subtext far more evident is enjoyable with out subtracting from a bag’s function.
The pods and cubes are most likely much less functional experiences for individuals carrying them, but personally, I was excited to see a collection of bags whose chief notion wasn’t “let’s place the initial letter of our brand’s name on points and see how individuals like it.” Logos are significant organization proper now, and Louis Vuitton’s is larger organization than all the other folks, but this collection reaffirmed that it really is not the only notion the brand has.
In far more standard news, the collection also featured some frequent ol’ great handbags, such as structured physician bags, a roomier-than-typical new camera bag, and a number of versions of a new flap shoulder bag with oversized pushlock hardware that I believe will be specifically effectively-liked. Verify out the weirder and much less-weird bags alike under.
