LOUIS VUITTON ALMA SHOULDER BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Alma-Mini-Bag

What can get you more excited than knowing that the iconic Alma Bag has transformed into the Louis Vuitton Alma Shoulder Bag. Created as a part of the Spring Summer 2018 Collection, the Alma Bag has a lengthy history rooted back to 1925. Yes, that’s how long the Alma Bag has excited.

It was Gabrielle Chanel who requested Louis Vuitton to design this bag, but it she didn’t gave permission to manufacture for the general public until years later. The Alma Bag was originally named Square, but it was ultimately changed to Alma, which was taken from the name Place De L’Alma, the location where Avenue Montaigne meets the Seine River.

And today we’re so thrilled to learn about the Shoulder Bag version of the Alma, but there is a doubt – is this bag really necessary?

The Design

The Alma Shoulder Bag looks quite similar to the Tote Bag, but some critical components are missing. However, let’s covers the similar components first. The shape of the Alma Shoulder Bag looks very much like the Tote Bag, both are designed with nice curvy body as well as double zippers. The bottom looks the same as well.

Now what is not the same?

The Alma Tote Bag comes with double handle for hand carry, but it also comes with a long leather strap for cross body and shoulder bag carry. So the question we have is: ‘if we can buy the tote bag, which includes a shoulder-option, then why should we buy the Alma Shoulder Bag?’. The answer is simple – the style is slightly different, but the price is also less expensive than the Tote Bag version.

The Alma Shoulder Bag comes with a double zip, but it includes long leather strap with knot. Below the zippers feature the house’s logo, printed on a leather patch. The shoulder strap is partly made in chain but reinforced with leather strap for shoulder comfort.

And there is one more thing; the Alma Shoulder Bag doesn’t include the iconic LV Lock, which is really disappointing.

Nevertheless, the bag is lovely and adorable. Especially because it’s designed with gold hardware. Now read down to know more about the price comparison with the Tote Bag

Inside you will find the main compartment, but also the wide double zip opening and an internal pocket.

The Prices And Sizes

Now let’s do a comparison between the LV Alma Shoulder Bag and the LV Alma Tote Bag, both in Epi Leather.

The Louis Vuitton Alma BB Tote Bag is measured 9.4’ x 6.7’ 4.6’ inches, priced at $1620 USD. The Louis Vuitton Alma Mini Shoulder Bag is measured 8.3’ x 6.3’ x 2.9’ inches, priced at $1350 USD. So the Mini Shoulder Bag is smaller, but it’s also cheaper. Which one would you prefer?

Prices: $1350 USD, $1670 CAD, €980 EUR, £910 GBP, $11200 HKD, $1790 AUD, ¥159840 JPY, 10400 CNY.

LOUIS VUITTON BRAIDED HEART TWIST BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Braided-Heart-Twist-Bag

Exclusive for the Spring Summer 2018 Collection, the Louis Vuitton Twist Bag has been modified with braid and lots of love. For those that are not familiar with this bag, it was introduced in 2017, but it’s already considered an icon of the house. There are countless of styles created since the day of launch, but this Louis Vuitton Braided Heart Twist Bag is our most favorite so far. Do you feel the love in the sky?

The Design

Louis-Vuitton-Braided-Heart-Twist-Bag-6

Besides the exterior, not much has been changed on the overall design. The Twist Bag comes with a front flap as well as the beautiful 3D LV twist-lock. This unique lock is the line’s signature design and it creates the timeless and modern feel.

You can carry the Twist Bag as a shoulder bag or as a clutch bag. For the shoulder bag, use the long leather strap, which can be adjusted or removed anytime you want. When the shoulder strap is removed, you can use the short chain as a handle for hand carry (or as a clutch bag).

The Twist Bag is a luxury bag but also a strong bag as it’s made from Epi leather. The new seasonal decoration is the braided detail around the flap. I love the pink shade with cream color braid. And if you take another look, the braid creates a heart-shape around the signature LV lock. Can you see that? Beautiful isn’t?

LOUIS VUITTON SPEEDY AMAZON BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Speedy-Amazon-Bag-2

The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag was first introduced around 80 years ago; it was designed while Georges Vuitton (the son of the founder) was still in charge of the company. But since then, nothing significant has been changed about the Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag.

In all these years perhaps the biggest adjustments were mixing colors like the Speedy Totem Bag, changing the cover like the Monogram Empreinte or shrinking to size 20 or even smaller like the size Nano.

But overall, the design remains the same.

Today Nicolas Ghesquiere took the house’s most iconic bag to another level by introducing the Louis Vuitton Speedy Amazon Bag. The changes are immediately recognized but it’s truly cleverly injected. The new Monogram Canvas print (mixed with blue and black) is gently embossed on the handles, the side-strap, the luggage tag and a bit on the front. It’s like decorating the Speedy Bag with care so that the Monogram Canvas doesn’t shadow the true beauty of this bag. It’s not too much and not too little, the perfect balance.

Crafted from Smooth Calfskin, the bag comes with an adjustable shoulder strap. The nametag features with metallic LV signature and there is even a LV Circle hot stamped signature on the back body. The 2 D-rings on the front allow for optional accessories or bag charms.

More, the interior is made with 2 flat pockets and here are the rest of the details:

Louis Vuitton Speedy Amazon Bag PM
Size: 7.1’ x 9.1’ x 5.1’ inches (L x H x W)
Price: $2350 USD or €2600 euro

Louis Vuitton Speedy Amazon Bag MM
Size: 11.8’ x 8.3’ x 6.7’ inches (L x H x W)
Price: $3950 USD or €1800 euro
