The finest leather, the utmost quality, and exclusivity to the highest degree... in 80,000 different variations. "Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie" which translates to "high leather goods" is the bare minimum to describe Louis Vuitton's bespoke handbag collection.
Inspired by Hermes, Louis Vuitton introduced their limited collection of handbags featuring specific shapes, beautiful colours, and premium leathers to their most exclusive clients to choose from. Allowing their clients to personalise their bag gives an enormous sense of exclusivity and sense of importance, hence why this collection can't just be found at any Maison Louis Vuitton.
The Haute Maroquinerie collection, which debuted in July 2012, is only available in select flagships around the world, locations including Paris, Milan, Sydney, Taipei and London. The experience the client receives when purchasing one of Louis Vuitton's bespoke bags is exceptional, to say the least. Within a large monogram trunk, lies the swatches of leather samples, locks, and 27 colour finishes. With thousands of variations to choose from, the client also has the option to engrave their name on the bag - making it unique and special. With such luxurious qualities and personalised details, it's no wonder each bag takes six months to a year to manufacture and deliver.
The styles of bags include The Noe, The Lockit, The Milaris, The Triangle, and The Neo Steamer.
