Now Louis Vuitton partners with Supreme in releasing new style of Eye-Trunk Cases. But they’re not released yet, so you need to wait until they hit the stores.

A coveted phone accessory piece to own this season, this Louis Vuitton iPhone case is highly anticipated with its fashion-forward style. Donning a fiery color of red that has long been associated with passion and desire, this iPhone cover is further adorned with the LV and Supreme logo in white and further accentuated with silver-tone hardware.

Louis Vuitton x Fragment Cabas Light Collection

Why Louis Vuitton didn’t launch them earlier still escapes me, but the Cabas Light bags, from the recently launched limited edition Louis Vuitton x Fragment collection, are officially my new favourite bags from the French luxury house. Created in collaboration with Fragment’s Hiroshi Fujiwara, it’s many things most boys will appreciate, from its massive size (50 cm by 50 cm by 16 cm) to the fact that it is extremely lightweight.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Topped with a pair of handles long enough to drape the tote comfortably over the shoulder, open the drawstring closure and reach into its textile-lined interior for the removable canvas pouch that comes with the bag. Available in Monogram Canvas (sorry guys, this one is a Japan-only exclusive), Monogram Eclipse (the one I want) and finally one more in a black textile fabric, the icing on this cult favourite cake has got to be those 4 magic words on the front of the bag, namely Louis Vuitton Fragment Tokyo.

Priced at SGD2860, both the ones in Monogram Eclipse and the black fabric textile are currently OOS, but I’ve also been told that daily replenishments are still happening at the #LVxFragment pop-up at Surrender’s 268 Orchard Road flagship that will end on 7 May 2017. Yes folks, use this long weekend and head on down because you’ll never know if you’ll get lucky and finally get the limited edition piece of your dreams.

LOUIS VUITTON NEONOE BAG

Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-NoeNeo-Bag

As if things couldn’t get any better for our favorite Louis Vuitton Noe Bag, suddenly comes this beautiful rendition of it in the newest and latest NeoNoe Bag. You can look closer and compare them side-by-side and you’ll instantly notice the difference without a hitch!

Designed in 1932 originally as a bag made to transport bottles of Champagne, the Noe comes back and returns for the Spring summer 2017 Collection as the NeoNoe. A modern and on-trend bucket bag in supple Monogram canvas made more beautiful with colorful calf-leather accents, this one definitely wins the game.

It features a luxurious Monogram coated canvas that is beautifully complemented by gold-color metal hardware. Aside from this, it also has a colorful calf-leather trim and a colorful bonded microfiber lining for an added fashion twist.

The NeoNoe Bag also has a drawstring closure for easy access and has an adjustable long strap with press studs so you can stylishly carry it in whatever way works best for you. Looking inside, it has an inside zipped pocket to keep your things organized.

Comparing it with the original Noe bag, you’ll notice that the adjustable strap is re-designed as the side leather is entirely done in Monogram Canvas.

Measuring 10.2” x 8.7” x 10.6” (L x H x W) inches and is priced $1390 USD, $1770 AUD, ¥10700 CNY via Louis Vuitton boutiques.

So what do you think?

Louis Vuitton Pochette Métis

Louis Vuitton

There are bags that try as you might, never really become anything more than last season’s forgotten wares. Then there are those that become instant hits the moment they hit the shelves without even a huge publicity campaign behind it. Ones that are fuelled only by the bag’s good looks, functionality and of course, its relative affordability, that’s as rare as a unicorn as far as luxury bags go in the marketplace these days.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Which brings us to Louis Vuitton’s Pochette Métis, the triple threat entrant to the French luxury house’s family of bags that’s still a hit today even though it has been around since 2013. Measuring just 25 cm by 19 cm, it looks familiar because it was inspired by the Monceau, its stiffer, more severe predecessor. In the Pochette Métis you’ll see the similarities between the two, the briefcase-like style with its front flap, that unmistakable clasp, the top handle but with a more rounded body, and better function. In the Monceau you had a smaller compartment attached to the front of the bag; in the Pochette Metis you have two similarly-sized gusseted compartments with a zip patch pocket at the bag.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

First made available only in Monogram Canvas (which is still highly sought after), the Pochette Métis has since been released in Monogram Empreinteleather (Pink as well as a Dark Blue with red piping), Monogram Infrarouge(that’s red monograms on black coated canvas) and most recently Monogram Reverse, which is the darling of the moment.

Priced from SGD2510 for the one in Monogram Reverse (I’m assuming it is more or less the same for the ones in coated canvas), you could wear it across the body or over the shoulder, remove the sling completely and use a twirled-up scarf as a sling, even wrap the handle with a silk bandeau to give it a completely new look. One bag, many different looks. Which in my books makes it even more desirable than the next.

Louis Vuitton S/S17 Chain It Bag

I’m sure you’re familiar with the Lockit, Louis Vuitton’s relaxed top handle tote that’s great for work or play. Now meet Louis Vuitton’s new bag of the season, the Chain It. At first glance, it’s your usual top handle handbag, complete with a long shoulder sling that allows one to wear it over the shoulder (or across the body). Pretty normal, right? Well, yes, until we get to its nautical-inspired chain.

Featuring a statement chain embellishment that runs the height of the bag, it looks as if the chain is weaved into the leather, an innovative process the design team is pretty chuffed about. Then there’s the lock on the bottom of the chain, which is also the clasp of the bag; you just need to press the sides of the lock to release the flap.

And besides the fact that you can completely remove the shoulder sling (something I really appreciate when it comes to helping the bag be more versatile), you can also retract the top handle, i.e you push it all the way to hide it as much as possible for a completely new look.

IMAGES: LOUIS VUITTON

Measuring some 26 cm by 20 cm, the bag comes in Monogram Canvasthat’s topped with a black leather flap (SGD3600), along with something called Epi Jean (which is basically Epi leather made to look like light denim, SGD3950) as well as smooth calf leather in Pistache (SGD4250). Last but not least, there’s the one in Damier Malletage that’s also my personal favourite. Featuring LV’s iconic Damier pattern with a ‘puffed’ leather effect, it’s also the most tactile of the lot. Priced at SGD4750, it’s also the most expensive of the lot, which is also fully understandable because it’s the most exquisite.

Now available at Louis Vuitton boutiques in Singapore, you just need to head down and see if this is the one that you find yourself chained to at the end of the day. Sorry, bad pun, but you know what I mean.
