You may perhaps have spotted the Louis Vuitton Coussin bag as aspect of the Spring-Summer season 2021 show or you may perhaps have noticed the bag make a splash with social media influencers you comply with in the previous week. This is the newest large release for the Property and I got my hands on two press samples to share an in depth appear at what is positive to be a large hit for Louis Vuitton. Coussin is the French word for cushion, and you can see this bag is the most desirable leather cushion out there.
Funnily sufficient, when I saw this bag on influencers this week, I wasn’t sold on it. It appears quite a few of them received the MM size which is rather a bit bigger and quite a few instances as considerably as you can get an notion of how anything appears, it is not till you see it in particular person on your personal physique that you can establish your correct thoughts. But when the samples arrived to me, I opened up the package and it was bag adore at 1st sight. There are so quite a few factors about this bag that I adore and I’m going to break it down for you.
This bag was the star of the Spring-Summer season 2021 show and the two standout capabilities are the Monogram-embossed puffy leather along with the visible trio pouch design and style. If you have been a lengthy time reader of the internet site, you know I am a large fan of Trio bags – the Celine Trio was one particular of my favourite purchases and is a bag I nonetheless turn to. But this bag is much more versatile as it is bigger and has optional straps as properly.
The pillow-like leather physique is seriously smooshy and is an aesthetic touch that brings you in straight away, in addition to the thick chain hardware which has the LV monogram on every single other chain hyperlink. The chain hyperlink strap is removable which is good mainly because it transforms the bag fully – from a much more edgy style bag moment to getting capable to carry the bag as a clutch. On top rated of the chunky chain hyperlink strap, there is a much more casual shoulder strap as properly. This is also removable, so you can dress down the bag and lessen the weight with the canvas strap (which is also lengthy sufficient to carry crossbody). Your other selections for carrying contain applying the canvas strap and letting the chain hyperlink strap hang for a trendy moment, or you have the selection of just the chain strap, and lastly you can carry the bag as a clutch. Versatility is crucial, specifically in today’s globe exactly where we need to have our bags to function for quite a few diverse sorts of events, and this bag is one particular that permits for altering up the way you carry it.
The trio of pouches can be noticed on the exterior, as every single seems as a separate pouch, nevertheless they are not removable from one particular a different. The top rated of the bag gives a single zipped closure which is effortless to open and close, and on the interior you will be met with a microfiber lining. The 3 inside compartments are separated by the center compartment which has a zip closure. The PM size gives ample interior space, in truth I conveniently match my common essentials and then some without the need of overcrowding the bag and producing it appear funny from the outdoors.
The PM size is spacious without the need of getting oversized and I am genuinely wowed by the bag. There is a bigger MM size and although I haven’t noticed it in particular person, to me it seems as well oversized for my individual likes in this bag. You nonetheless need to have to be a fan of the classic Louis Vuitton Monogram to adore this bag, which I am, but it is much more subtle in that it is pressed into the puffy lambskin leather. Dimensions of the PM size are 20cm L x 26cm H x 12cm W and the MM size is 24 x 34 x 12 cm.
Some bags need to have to be noticed in true life and this bag is seriously anything unique in particular person. Vlad, who sees a lot of bags and assures me I do not need to have a new bag, even keeps commenting on how beautiful this bag is. Whilst silver leather is not what I’d commonly opt for, I’m oddly obsessed with it. On this bag and with the silver metal hardware strap, it stands out and reminds me of some of my favourite Marc Jacobs era LV bags. Other colors (which includes the red pictured) come with gold metal hardware. I seriously wasn’t positive if this was going to be a bag that I fell for, but I can inform you that soon after seeing it in particular person, I am beginning the Louis Vuitton Coussin fan club.
