Oversized tote bags and clutches were trends of last season; this is the time for giving an unconventional look to the classic and obsolete piece like trunk, a hint of haute couture. Fashion powerhouse, Louis Vuitton, recently unveiled ‘Petite Malle Bag’ collection at the recently held Paris Fashion week, giving an unusual look to the archetypal travel tote.
Petite Malle inevitably interprets to ‘little trunk’, is shaped like a mini-trunk that can either be carried like a bag or as a clutch. The rectangular shape treasure chest is presented in signature details like a fold over lid, buckles and clasps with a distinctive design in an assortment of shades and sizes. The bag comes in the customary monogrammed canvas as well as in diverse colours of the brand’s épi leather. And for those who want their bag to appear like a ‘bag’, it is available with a detachable fabric cover giving the creation a softer look and also covering its jagged edges.
While some bags have the classic Louis Vuitton design, others have more subtle and artistic touch with a metallic gloss or two-toned colour-blocking pattern. In spite of coloration, these bags offer a stylish statement to lug one’s stuff with some classic fervor.
So, if you want to get your hands on one, better start saving now! As Louis Vuitton has not set a price yet, but be prepared to drop a lot of cash on this statement piece. We say, stay fashion-forward with this miniature clutch.
