Love It or Leave It: Louis Vuitton Twist MM with Braid Work Detail

Louis Vuitton News

When I first started PurseBlog, I was super into Louis Vuitton. I remember getting my name on the list and securing a few sought after bags, including the Watercolor Speedy (which was only $1,270 when I bought it in 2008!). I didn’t fall out of love with Louis Vuitton, I just moved on a bit. I got hooked on Hermès then went through a major Céline addiction as well. But lately I’ve been drawn back to Louis Vuitton and I’ve been eying the Twist.

As with many other popular bags from the brand, the Louis Vuitton Twist comes in a variety of different options. One of the newest versions of the Louis Vuitton Twist MM caught my eye with the braid work on the bottom corners that is reminiscent of baseball stitching.

Along with the braid work, the bag features lambskin leather, Epi leather, the now iconic LV Twist lock, and a double-strap chain to carry. The dimensions of the MM are 9.1 x 7.1 x 3.1 inches. If you give the bag a closer look, you can see where the grained Epi leather meets the smooth Epi leather which is separated by braiding. The interior is lined in microfiber with leather trim and features an inside compartment and flat pocket for a pull out mirror.

While I do think the next LV bag I’ll purchase will be some version of the Twist, I don’t know that this is the Twist bag for me. What do you think, love it or leave it? Buy via Louis Vuitton for $4,050.

Thieves Swipe $140,000 Worth of Handbags from Louis Vuitton Store in Brazil

Louis Vuitton News

Louis Vuitton debuted an expansive Cruise 2017 collection in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, earlier this week, but news out of the South American country wasn’t all positive for the French luxury brand. According to the New York Times, the Vuitton store in Rio’s upscale Ipanema neighborhood was robbed Tuesday morning, only two days after the attention-grabbing show.

Reports indicate the thieves made off with over $140,000 in handbags in the early morning hours; no products from other categories were mentioned. For reference, that’s about 36 of the brand’s popular City Steamer bags, which retail at $3,850 for the medium size is smooth leather.

Brazilian authorities did not stipulate which bags were taken, but Vuitton had released a handful of Cruise 2017 bags for general purchase immediately after the show on Saturday. The bags are only available online in the US, but Vanessa Friedman of the NYT speculates that local excitement and attention over the show may have influenced the robbers, and the occasion certainly could have made a timely hit more attractive.

If you see any Louis Vuitton bag available from Brazilian sellers with prices that seem too good to be true, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

LOUIS VUITTON ALL-IN BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-All-In-Bag

Here’s a practical handbag with an interesting name, meet the Louis Vuitton All-In Bag for the Cruise 2018 Collection. The word All-In doesn’t have the same meaning like poker, when you’re throwing all the coins into one bet. But actually it means that all your essential can be easily stored inside this handbag, you can throw it ‘all in’. Now let’s talk about some serious details:

The Design

I love this All-In Bag, it got some fresh characteristics. First it’s designed in the signature Monogram Canvas, which is well-known in the fashion world. The leather handles are colored in beige, just like the Classic Speedy Bag. But what you also need to know is that this All-In Bag is inspired by the iconic House pieces like the Steamer Bagand the Sac Plat Bag. And there is more.

The style is completely focused on minimalism while maintaining the chic’ness. The All-In Bag is the perfect travel bag as well because it’s foldable. The ultra-supple shape goes easily from flat to full.

The Louis Vuitton All-In Bag vs Neverfull Bag

Louis-Vuitton-All-In-Bag-3

The Louis Vuitton Neverfull Bag

Both handbags are crafted to store as many items as possible. The name Neverfull says a lot about the design – it’s never, ever full.

The Neverfull Bag has always been the house’s classic, just like the Speedy Bag. But now we have the All-In Bag and it’s foldable too – and we now wonder whether it can store as many items as the Neverfull. Let’s do a comparison.

The Louis Vuitton All-In MM Bag is measured 19.5’ x 14’ x 8’ (L x H x W) inches. The Neverfull MM Bag is measured 12.6’ x 11.4’ x 6.7’ (L x H x W) inches. So what is the conclusion?

The All-In Bag is bigger in every way and it can store much more than the Neverfull Bag. What’s more? The All-In Bag has thicker strap, whereas the Neverfull has thinner strap. Some people who has the Neverfull worries that the strap is too thin and snap. Moreover, the All-In Bag is foldable and easier to transport, it can be your shopping bag and travel bag at the same time. So it’s very handy whenever you go travelling.

The All-In Bag might be the next iconic and replace the Neverfull. In terms of size, the All-In Bag certainly win.

So what is the short-term downside?

The Neverfull Bag has been around for quite some time. You have a lot of different Neverfull versions like the Monogram Canvas, Damier Canvas, Epi Leather and also different interior colors. But the All-In Bag is new and first it needs to proof itself. Only then will Louis Vuitton keep this handbag and make more variation of it. We hope they will, soon!

The Interior

Louis-Vuitton-All-In-Bag-4

Some people don’t like the closure of the Neverfull Bag because it still exposes the interior. The All-In Bag is made with a zip closure and when you close your bag, no hands can reach your essentials. What’s more? It also comes with an internal zipped pocket for important items.
