Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous Bag

For next Spring, pencil in a meeting with Rendez-Vous, Louis Vuitton’s highly distinguished new bag. This neo-classic is reminiscent of our precious diaries, with its three compartments protected by a flap and clasp. An understated luxury but with the House’s authentic signature know-how: the finesse of the most beautiful leathers on the outside and the softness of a Monogram-embroidered jacquard on the inside.

The engraved chain adds a stylish accent; it can be removed to offer an array of carry options: crossbody, over the shoulder, held in the hand or even next to your heart like a talisman, as suggested in the latest runway show.

Naturally, the lock has been directly inherited from the trunk-maker. Its subtle colours – black, camel or beautiful leather red – express the discreet charm of pure refinement. Rendez-Vous is right on time for a tête-à-tête with elegance.

The LV Pont 9 Shoulder Bag

I am so proud to share with you today’s news which I have exclusively for Switzerland. Meet your new must-have: the LV Pont 9 shoulder bagLouis Vuitton’s latest embodiment of effortless Parisian chic and a new symbol of its ongoing commitment to exquisite craftsmanship. Perfect for both everyday and special occasions, this new design takes its name from Paris’ Pont Neuf, the oldest and most celebrated bridge that sits opposite Louis Vuitton’s headquarters in Paris. It also marks the first release of the House’s new LV Pont 9 leather line.

The bag’s refined, rounded design is brought to life in smooth, lightly padded calfskin and finishes with the exclusive Louis Vuitton Circle, a 1930s archive logo reinterpreted by Nicolas Ghesquière, the House’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections, and used on both the bag’s flap – as a closure – and strap. The interior, in sleek and colourful leather, features a smart design with two compartments and two practical pockets. A careful attention to detail is revealed in both the bag’s gusseted construction that adds both structure and extra space, in addition to subtle «hidden« features such as the novel Monogram flower-inspired magnetic closure.

The LV Pont 9 bag is available in a diverse range of striking colours. Alongside the understated and elegant Noir and delicate Crème is a palette of more vibrant tones: deep sunset-like Summer Gold; feminine and vibrant Rose Dahlia; and soft and dreamy Bleu Orage.
Contemporary, yet instantly classic, and superbly crafted, the LV Pont 9 shoulder bag is an enchanting addition to Louis Vuitton’s 150-year tradition of innovative leather goods.

Miu Miu Introduces the My Miu Bag

First seen in March on the Miu Miu runway in Paris, the My Miu bag marks the first occasion in which the name of the brand features prominently both patched in psychedelic lettering and in the form of a large polished gold or palladium lock.


Star accessory of the new season, with its glittering fringes and jeweled buckles, the My Miu combines a respect for handcraftsmanship and the finest fabrications with a sense of femininity, irreverence and fun.

The My Miu show model is the most elaborate, presented in five different and highly distinctive combinations of precious materials: madras leather patched with python; python or ayers embellished with jewelled fringing; python or ayers finished with a jewelled buckle; matelassé leather with a python belt and jewelled buckle and fluffy fur with an ayers belt and jewelled buckle.


Colours range from classic – natural snake, black – to pop bright and pastel and, often, a juxtaposition of the three. All bags feature a removable and adjustable python or ayers strap allowing them to be carried cross body, on the shoulder or as a clutch.

The My Miu is also available in a slightly smaller size and fabricated to suit every occasion. Classic madras and ayers, matelassé and ayers and velvet and ayers bags come with a metal chain strap. The denim interpretation features a sporty nylon strap.

Completing the range, the mini My Miu is the simplest and most accessible version of the style. Light, easy and effortlessly elegant, it is crafted in signature matelassé leather and textile in a wide range of colours with a metal chain strap.

Bag Crush – The New Gucci Dionysus

Gucci_Dionysus_BagFW15
It was big news when GUCCIicon revealed their new Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, in January this year (for the previous post, please click here). One thing is for sure. The fashion industry loves debuts and indeed, Michele’s approach feels very different from what we had been knowing from Giannini’s collections. The new man at the helm of Gucci has a decidedly more romantic outlook, differing from the former sexy designs.

For his first season, Alessandro Michele created the DIONYSUS BAG, which will be the It-Bag of the season! With the horseshoe-shaped double Tiger-head closure as its distinctive feature, the Dionysus was named after the eponymous Greek god of wine, who crossed the river Tigris with the aid of his father, Zeus, who sent a tiger to carry Dionysus across.

The new Dionysus bag is available in various materials including exotic skins like python and crocodile, and even with embroidered embellishments such as a bee, snake or eagle, created using strips of brass whipped in silk thread.

My favorite model is this hand-painted floral motif as also seen in the F/W2015 ad campaign.
