the focus of the collection is on the luxurious quality and treatment of the materials produced by the savoir-faire of Louis Vuitton ateliers. The house’s Monogram and Damier canvas are nowhere to be seen on the catwalk; instead, its three iconic bag shapes have been realized in supple fabrications and softer constructions to emphasize their more sensuous and feminine aspects.
The Pochette Accessoires, the Lockit and the Speedy boast resplendent textures such as marabou, waxed leather and crocodile. The mink Speedys have handles carved in exotic, aromatic woods that have been antiqued by hand; the handles on the python bags are made from horn; and the signature metal chain on the Pochette Accessoire has been adorned with precious stones.
Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2013 fashion show bags are set to be released on August 15th 2013, with the exception of the Reverie Pochette Chain MM which will be available on a later date, October 15th 2013. Discover the collection below:
