Louis Vuitton recently presented their Cruise 2017 Collection at the Niterói Museum of Contemporary Arts in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The sporty collection pays homage to the city’s culture which presents vibrant colors, football and Grand Prix prints with a touch of Parisian flair. The star of the show is the Boombox Bag which is made of the Petite Malle bags which can even play music through Bluetooth. The iconic Speedy Bag features racing prints with Vuitton logo emblazoned on it and comes with a combination of the House classic materials such as the Damier, Epi and Monogram Canvas. The City Steamer gets an edgy update with a variety of pockets and rivets. Louis Vuitton introduces the Football print seen on the Steamer and Twist bags.

If you’ve walked into any Louis Vuitton boutique lately, you would already have seen the new Cruise 2017 bags that have started arriving on our shores. And one of the standout pieces from this collection would be the ‘Race’ Speedy30 Bandouliere, also known as Nicolas Ghesquière’s tribute to the Brazilian life, where the runway presentation was shown back in the month of May in Rio. Made with a mish-mash of LV’s best known icons, there’s a bit of Monogram Reverse, a bit of Epi and a bit ofDamier, all held together with the word Vuitton splashed across the front of the bag.

Then there’s this, the other striking colour combination that this seasonal Speedy30 Bandouliere comes in. Finished with a patch pocket on the side (much like the ones the vintage Epi Speedy bags used to have) and a shoulder sling that’s also removable, I do hope this means that Louis Vuitton will start having more fun and seasonal Speedy bags again, just like the ones Marc Jacobs always had whenever he launched a new collection. Priced at SGD3400, it’s not exactly cheap but with such a mix of colours and materials (did I also mention this is limited edition?), I didn’t really expect it to cost any less.

There were a barrage of Cruise and Resort runway shows over the holiday weekend, and many of our celeb handbag round-up usuals made their way to Rio for Louis Vuitton's. Not everyone headed to the runway shows, of course; some celebs stayed in town, shopped at their favorite stores and loafed around their usual haunts, just like I did. Others opted to use the weekend to up their A-level game by knoshing on some Italian cuisine with other A-listers. All in all, it was a top-notch long weekend with a top-notch roster of celeb handbag selections to match.

Louis Vuitton Twist Bag
Alessandra Ambrosio carried this cheetah print Louis Vuitton Twist bag to the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 show in Rio. LV already seems to be tweaking its new logos, which is fine by me, because I personally hated the revamped logos that first appeared on the Twist.

Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag
Legendary French actress Catherine Deneuve also attended the LV show with a bi-color Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag. The show took place at Brazil's Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum, which is basically a museum on the ocean with a giant infinity pool feature, so as you can imagine, the visuals were pretty fantastic.

Demi Moore was recently spotted at LAX with a small bright red Birkin, which really pops with that Mickey Mouse tee. If you're wondering what Demi Moore's been up to lately, trust me when I say that no one really knows. Oddly, the tabloids are worried that she is "partying too hard," mainly because she is starting to show visible signs of natural aging.

Gucci Boston Bag
Here's Heidi Klum, doing a little shopping in West Hollywood with a Gucci Boston Bag. And yes, to confirm your suspicions, those decals do depict a snowman being strangled to death by a python. Make of that what you will.

Chanel Classic Flap Bag
Paps caught up with Jane Fonda while she was leaving dinner at Dan Tana's in LA. As you can see, she's carrying a bright blue Chanel Classic Flap, as well as a DOG. Stars, they're not like us at all: it's totally fine if they bring a dog inside a restaurant.

The Row Two for One 13th Bag
Mary-Kate Olsen was recently spotted shopping at Versace in NYC while carrying a bag of her own design, The Row Two for One 13th Bag. There are multiple iterations of the Two for One, and they are numbered 10 through 13. So far as I can tell, the 13th is not yet available in stores.

Dolce & Gabbana Vanda Fur Clutch
Ri-Ri recently dined with none other than Naomi Campbell at NYC's Emilio's Ballato. She carried a furry, multicolored Dolce & Gabbana bag and wore a patterned D&G caftan for the occasion. If I could've been a fly on the wall, I would've been studiously taking notes.

Louis Vuitton Twist Bag
Finally, here's one more celeb at the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 show in Rio. It's Zendaya, carrying an earlier version of the Louis Vuitton Twist than Alessandra Ambrosio's. Her dress and shoes (not seen here) are also Louis Vuitton.
