It is in the nature of things that especially the bags of Louis Vuitton are viewed particularly critically, as the origins of the luxury company lie in the manufacturing of fine luggage. While the designs that Nicolas Ghes- quière presents every season on the catwalk are certainly impressed with their innovative shapes, the designer has gone back to the roots of the company in the latest addition and created a timeless classic of simple beauty.
There is a lot to say about the new “LV Pont 9”, named after the oldest bridge in Paris. After all, it is the starting signal for the new leather line of the same name, which is completely committed to French Chic. The design is captivating with its rounded shape, the lightly upholstered calfskin, and the “Louis Vuit- ton Circle” logo, for which Ghesquière modernized a design from the archives. It is available not only in classic black and white but also in lush violet or rich orange.
By the way, the fans of the first hour also include such illustrious names as Alicia Vikander, Lea Seydoux, Emma Roberts, or Sophie Turner, who have already been spotted with the new design model. Accordingly, the debut can be described as quite successful. The future will show whether the model can soon join the long list of icons of the house with classics such as the “Alma” or “Petite Malle”. In any case, the chances are good.
