Louis Vuitton’s new creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, has debuted his collection at Paris Fashion Week. And of the whole lot, the new Petite Malle bag has grabbed our attention! Louis Vuitton has sidelined large bag trend and made way for mini trunk-shaped bags for its autumn/winter 2014 collection.
Unveiled amidst high expectations on the Parisian catwalk, the rectangular shaped Petite-Malle bags are distinctively designed in a range of shades, fabrics as well as sizes. The treasure chest like look is rendered by signature details like a fold over lid top, clasps and buckles.
Appearing like a super-stylish, portable vanity case, the must-have bag of the forthcoming season dangles down the shoulders with a long leather strap. These straps can be detached to transform it in to stylish box clutch too.
Daily Mail also reported that a petite-malle bag in orange was seen hanging down from supermodel Natalia Vodianova’s shoulder. She is the chosen one as she is engaged to Antoine Arnault, son of Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH. Also Bernard’s daughter, Delphine Arnault, was seen sporting the new bag from the collection.
The bag can also be given a ephemeral makeover by covering it in fabric to mask the shape edges and give a softer, typical bag-like appearance.
The French fashion brand’s newest creative designer has hit bulls eye with the bags from his first collection by going back to the LV’s roots and paying tribute to its monogrammed trunks.
Nicolas Ghesquière closed the Paris Fashion Week with his first collection for Louis Vuitton at the Cour Carrée of the Louvre.
