The first collection of Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton was so much appreciated that we’re witnesses of how one of his handbags became the latest hit during the Fashion Week in Paris. Shaped like a mini-trunk, this new accessory’s come to get installed in the closet of some lucky ones!
We can’t deny the charm of this accessory is striking at first sight, and you can carry it hung on the shoulder by a removable shoulder trap or like a clutch. Let us give you more details about it, just in case you feel like having it as much as we do! It’s called Petite Malle bag, which can be easily translated to “little trunk”, and if you pronounce it incorrectly, it will sound like “petit mal,” which is a name given to a specific type of minor seizure. It also has, as an elegant complement, a removable canvas cover to protect it from undesirable fingerprints. More in detail we see the already characteristic 3 crosses on the right, which are inspired by a wealthy banker who commissioned trunks from Louis Vuitton between 1911 and 1929 and had the crosses painted on all his own pieces.
The street style’s already dominated by this small bag, and we could see some it girls wearing it in such a big event like the Paris Fashion Week. Evidently they couldn’t resist to wear this trendy bag, although one thing’s clear for sure: such a coincidence in the model and the city makes us suspect the vast majority of these girls looked for their contacts in the showroom and borrowed this masterpiece, cause it couldn’t be a simple casuality they all had the same consistent style (huh, if they only had one…).
Perhaps the only variation was the colour in the chosen model: could be red, yellow, with the Vuitton logo… It makes it impossible to not find yours!
