Introducing the Louis Vuitton Bella Bag

Arguably one of the most understated logo lines of its assortment, Louis Vuitton has recently updated its Mahina leather line to include a stylish, relaxed bucket bag. The storied French design House’s Mahina leather is crafted from soft calf leather with a perforated logo motif finish. Featuring the brand’s iconic LV initials and accompanying flowers in a perforated leather, the Mahina line allows Louis Vuitton’s iconic logo to remain understated as most of the designs in this line are monochromatic. That includes the brand’s latest addition to the line, the Bella bag.

The inclusion of the Bella bag in this collection turns a page in the House’s history, as this small, compact bucket bag is one of the most modern additions to this otherwise classic line. The supple calfskin leather on the Bella features a shrunken version of the trademark perforated monogram for the first time ever, which works well on this silhouette’s small size. This easy, relaxed shape is finished with a loose drawstring closure for an incredibly easy wear.
Chic, contemporary detailing makes the bag stand out, like a braided leather and chain handle, a round coin purse that sits attached to the side of the bag and a crossbody strap. The sophisticated leather and mixed metal stylistic details jazz up the otherwise simple shape, and the longer strap can also be removed, allowing for versatility with every wear. Inside the bag is lined in microfiber, and there doesn’t appear to be any interior pockets. The perfect mix of modern with a trendy edge, the Bella bag is perfect for everyday wear with overall dimensions of 7.5″ x 8.7″ x 5.5″. Currently this brand new bucket is available in 3 colors: Magnolia, which is a blush pink, as well as Black and a stone-grey hue called Galet. Retail is $3,450 via Louis Vuitton.

Celebs Carry Covetable Picks from Hermès, Gucci and Valentino All Around Town

Paris Hilton is back on our radar. Ever since the star released her YouTube Documentary This is Paris we’ve seen quite a fair bit more of this iconic star. The selfie-creator, reality TV pioneer and handbag lover is undeniably a pop-culture icon. The LA-based jetsetter made her way to NYC where she’s been spotted around town with her sister, and celeb bag regular, Nicky. Per usual, the pair was seen with their best bags in tow. While both sisters are style-stars in their own right, their choices couldn’t be more opposite. Nicky was seen carrying one of her many classic Birkin bags and Paris was spotted wearing velour bell-bottoms that are so 2000, though her top is too long for us to decipher if they’re also low-rise (dear lord, let us pray they’re not!), and an MCM backpack that doubles as a speaker. Nicky’s consistently sleek picks lead us to believe she’d never ask Paris to borrow this bag!

Meanwhile, filming continues for the upcoming Netflix miniseries Inventing Anna, which chronicles the life of a fake heiress who conned her way into New York high society and actress Julia Garner was spotted carrying an adorable Gucci Zumi Mini Bag on set. Bag sleuths were quick to point out the authenticity of her last carry, and while it’s impossible to tell if this little Gucci is the real deal, maybe we’ve reached the point in the series where the lead has tricked her way into snagging the finer things in life? What do we think?

Loving Lately: Warm and Cozy Bags for Fall 2020

Like it or not, winter is on the horizon, and if you live in the northeast like me, this inevitability is impossible to ignore for a few reasons. The last week or so we’ve already gotten a taste of temps in the low 40s and high 30s and with the early evening darkness that comes with daylight savings time it really feels like summer is behind us. Though we’ve still got another month of fall, with the chilly November temps comes the revival of our winter wardrobes—think big sweatshirts, cozy sweaters and all the fleece jackets. The fleece and fuzzy jacket trend has been huge the last few years, and if you’d like to take the trend one step further, you can tote your belongings around in the coziest of carries as well. Last month we introduced you to Dior’s super-soft new iteration of its beloved Saddle bag, but of course there are plenty of other ways to tap into this trend too. Check out our finds below!

Perfect Pairs: Scarf + Bag Edition

Nothing says autumn like pulling out your scarves, sweaters, and boots. Scarves are one of my favorite accessories and I always find great joy in being able to wear them again once the cooler weather arrives. They’re an easy way to add a personal touch to any outfit, even a plain white tee shirt and jeans. I think of them as my easy, secret weapon to looking put together (even on days when I am so not), as well as keeping me warm on a chilly day.

In addition to collecting bags, I am admittedly a scarf hoarder. I have a tradition of picking up a new scarf in a new city I travel to, and this year I was extra grateful to pull out my scarves and reminisce on trips to Paris, Rome, Prague, Edinburgh, Singapore, and more through my scarves. Although I didn’t pick up any new scarves during a trip this year (thanks, 2020), I am on the hunt to add a new scarf to my collection this season. With so many beauties online, it was tough to narrow it down to one or two, and I am more than likely adding a handful of new scarves to my collection this year.

Naturally I had to pick a new bag to match a new scarf, so I put together a list of my favorite matches! What do you think, which is your perfect pair?

Louis Vuitton’s Stephen Sprouse Collab Was (and Is) the Brand’s Best

Collaborations have become so omnipresent in luxury fashion that it’s hard to remember there was once a time when such a partnership was rare and almost unheard of. Now, in 2020, it is almost more common than not for luxury brands to introduce limited-edition capsules.

Collaborations come in many forms—sometimes they’re brand on brand (think Dior and Nike), other times they’re art related, like Fendi’s recent partnership with artist Joshua Vides and sometimes a brand’s creative ventures include of-the-moment musical artists like Coach’s work with Selena Gomez. And though high fashion is no stranger to these kinds of realtionships, there’s one brand that’s arguably the pioneer when it comes to brand partnerships, and that’s Louis Vuitton.

While we’re mainly discussing 21st century-era collaborations, it’s worth noting that Louis Vuitton has been sharing its creative approach since its heyday, working on a myriad of special orders for the rich and the who’s who of society. It’s that open approach to its creative processes that set the stage for the modern-day partnerships we’re discussing.

No stranger to the dialogue and communication that comes with sharing a design process with someone else, Louis Vuitton has produced a multitude of capsule collections over the years. And while there are many reasons why a brand chooses to execute a partnership (from the opportunity to reach a new customer base to reinvigorating a brand and beyond), few have carried out collaborations with such ease as Louis Vuitton.

One of the brand’s most notable (and unlikely) pairings was the brand’s 2017 collection in partnership with skate brand Supreme. The collection of RTW and accessories was released to massive fanfare, resulting in an equally large success rate, selling out across the world and resulting in an increased revenue of 21 percent that year, according to WWD.

Other notable partnerships include collections with artists such as Takashi Murakami, Yayoi Kusama, Richard Prince, Jeff Koons and more. Though few partnerships were as widely beloved and coveted as those with late artist Stephen Sprouse during creative director Marc Jacobs’ tenure at Louis Vuitton.
Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse’s collection was first introduced for spring/summer 2001, featuring an insanely cool reimagined monogram print. LV fans immediately fell in love with the monogram graffiti created by Sprouse and Jacobs. The dynamic duo’s partnership was a hit, and in 2009 Jacobs once again partnered with the artist posthumously, paying homage to Sprouse with a collection of products adorned with beautiful, vibrant roses. Based on a sketch of a rose that Sprouse first drew when working with Jacobs on the first collaboration, the result was a beautifully poetic tribute to Stephen Sprouse himself, who died of cancer in 2004.

The Roses collection features some of the rarest and most sought-after Louis Vuitton bags of our time, and unlike the brand’s Multicolore Monogram bags, which were an equally as coveted collaboration with Takashi Murakami, the Roses collection never appeared dated or overplayed. The beautiful, coveted bags still solicit sales that are way beyond market value, over 10 years after the collection’s release, cementing this collaboration as one of the brand’s best.

2021 MCM STARK MINI BACKPACK REVIEW

For the longest time I have admired the huge range of different backpacks from MCM, the subtle monogramming effect combined with a timeless design had always attracted my attention. Finally I managed to acquire one and add it to my collection. I got the 2021 MCM STARK MINI BACKPACK with Studs in size small, which is unisex. For my latest post I felt it was my duty for me to share my opinion of it with my readers in a review. Check it out below.












The shape of the MCM Stark Backpack is mostly typical of any backpack you are ever likely to see, either high street or premium. However, it is something that follows that classic proverb “if it ain’t broke, why fix it?”.

Despite this, MCM have included the unique option of choosing various sizes for the same style, giving a slight edge on the majority of the competition. Available in X-Mini, Mini, Small, Medium and Large. I personally opted for the small size to complement my more modest body size better. I did consider the medium (purely for practicality, to fit more stuff inside!) but after viewing the medium worn by others, I came to the conclusion that it mostly dwarfed the wearer. This was mostly evident if they were smaller framed, sometimes it gave the illusion they were a turtle wearing its shell! As it turns out, and you can see in the photos, the size small is ideal for me.

CONCLUSION
In summary for this review, I am 100% happy with my MCM Stark backpack! Easy on the eye with its stunning design, plenty of internal space for day to day use and very durable thanks to its material composition! If you are in the market for a premium backpack, I wholeheartedly recommend one from the MCM range, with or without studs as it depends on what you’re looking for.

Most Used Designer Bags:Gucci Marmont Camera Bag

Gucci’s packaging is simply stunning. I love the clean lines and the elegant white and black colour scheme, both of which help make the experience that little bit more luxurious. The box it comes in has a magnetic flap, which is really easy to get in and out of, and I have found perfect for storing the gucci Marmont Camera Bag when I’m not using it. The dustbag is equally perfect – it does a great job of protecting the bag, as well as being such a soft, luxurious silky material.

 


















 

I’m completely obsessed with everything Gucci Marmont at the moment, it’s not even funny. It took a while, but once the chevron design and the antiquated logo grew on me, it grew on me in a big way. The Marmont mini bag is definitely my favourite of the range, as I just love the boxy shape, and it’s cute size. I just think it looks so sleek, and a little edgier than the typical handbag, which suits my style and tastes.
