It might be lockdown, but that doesn’t mean I am blind. And let’s be honest when it comes to luxury, and especially bags, nobody does it better than Louis.
Louis Vuitton has just released the LV Pont 9. A shoulder bag like no other shoulder bag before it.
Effortlessly, Parisian chic, a symbol of an ongoing commitment to exquisite craftsmanship. The perfect fit for everyday wear or a special occasion.
This new design gets its name from the oldest and most celebrated bridge in Paris, the Paris Pont Neuf. It also marks the first release of the House’s new LV Pont 9 leather line.
How Does It Look?
A refined, rounded design, is brought to life in smooth, lightly padded calfskin, finished with the Louis Vuitton Circle. This exclusive archive logo has been in existence since 1930 and reinterpreted by Nicolas Ghesquière, the House’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections. You’ll find it on the bag’s flap and strap.
The interior is a sleek and colourful leather, that features a smart design. Two compartments and two practical pockets, every woman’s dream. The careful attention to detail is revealed in the construction that adds both structure and extra space (I’m dying a slow death here). And subtle “hidden” features like the Monogram flower-inspired magnetic closure.
Let’s Talk Colours
The LV Pont 9 bag is available in a range of diverse and striking colours. From the usual understated and elegant Noir and delicate Créme, is a palette of more vibrant tones. We are talking, deep sunset-like Summer Gold, feminine and vibrant Rose Dahlia, and soft and dreamy Bleu Orage.
As always, an instantly classic, superbly crafted addition to a 150-year tradition of innovative leather goods.
I am wondering whether this could be a belated birthday present to me, from me?
