The Louis Vuitton brand was founded in 19th-century Paris by Vuitton, who wanted to become a trunk master. The brand was firmly placed in the luxury fashion world with the introduction of its monogrammed canvas in 1896 that remains iconic to the brand to this day. Currently under the creative direction of Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton continues to create exquisite luxury accessories with the high quality craftsmanship for which the brand is known.
Louis Vuitton has created a lot of ‘it’ bags and must haves since it’s creation. One of which is our bag of the week, the Capucines MM, which is the perfect city chic bag. With modern lines and bold statement colours, this will stand out from the crowd.
This version with a python handle is a rare find and adds a glamourous touch to any outfit. The Capucines line takes its name from the Rue des Capucines in Paris, where Louis Vuitton opened his first store in 1854. Wear the flap on the outside to show the monogram flower, or tuck the flap into the top compartment to reveal the LV initials in stunning silver hardware. The red is a daring shade that will stand out and create a bold statement for spring/summer 2017.
The Capucines collection is also loved by celebrities, including Angelina Jolie, Miranda Kerr and Michelle Williams, who was the face of the campaign for this line.
