Louis Vuitton Handbag Guide

Fashion for any Occasion: Louis Vuitton’s Handbags

Founded in 1854, Louis Vuitton Malletier, colloquially called Louis Vuitton, is a world-famous French fashion house. Without question, Louis Vuitton’s most renowned products are its designer handbags. Similarly, the company’s monogram – which is composed of quatrefoils and flowers – is also recognized around the world as a signifier of luxury and quality.

Larger Handbags

Louis Vuitton’s current collection of handbags is extremely varied, with a purse or accessory that will suit any fashionable occasion. On the larger end, LV has shoulder bags, cross body bags, and top handle handbags. The Alma PM, for example, is one of the most iconic Louis Vuitton bags. Featuring a leather key tag, and a double zip padlock closure system, this shoulder strap-style handbag has a wide opening for easy access. The exterior of the Alma has Louis Vuitton’s famous chocolate brown/light brown checkerboard pattern with matching brown leather handles.

The Neverfull PM is probably the most popular option in Louis Vuitton’s shoulder handbags collection. This new version of the bag works excellently as a day handbag. The tote comes with a monogramed zipper clutch that will hold all of your credit cards, pictures, and IDs. Featuring a cowhide leather trim exterior, the Neverfull has LV’s legendary “LV” font embossed on this high-quality cow material.

Purses

One of the most intriguing new styles in Louis Vuitton’s handbag collection is the Capucines MM. This traditional-style purse is so interesting because it has shoulder, elbow, or hand-carry options, courtesy of its leather handle and sturdy brass metallic pieces. The Capucines has a calfskin lining, a full-grain Taurillon leather exterior, and two large compartment pockets for roomy storage.

Clutches and Mini-Bags

On the smaller end of its handbag collection, Louis Vuitton offers a bunch of clutches and mini-bags for women who want to look fashionable without having to carry such a large bag. One of the freshest approaches to handbags is the Rossmore MM, made of extravagant Vernis leather that has the flower monogram print embossed on its exterior. The Rossmore is so unique because it has a magnetic button closure system, meaning the clutch will never accidentally open, spilling your valuables and personal effects. A calfskin lining covers the interior of the Rossmore, giving it an elegant finish.

The Monceau BB is a fresh take on a retro style, thanks in large part to its unadorned burnished brown leather exterior. Golden brass fasteners and a matching brass zipper keep this calfskin-covered bag closed. Unquestionably the most functional feature of the super-stylish Monceau is the front exterior pocket, which is perfect for carrying your personal essentials in.
