Louis-Vuitton-Mini-City-Steamer-Bag

Look effortlessly steamy and fashion-forward with the newest Mini City Steamer Bag from Louis Vuitton. A newest addition to the City Steamer family, this mini size is the smallest yet cutest bag from the collection.

Paying homage and respect to the House heritage while incorporating added signature twists, this Mini City Steamer Bag is such a steal. Made from smooth calfskin, the Toron handles with Dora handle mounts are useful if you feel like carrying it in your hands. Take note of the engraved and facette padlock, nametag, and the hot-stamped LV Circle on back for these are the highlights of this bag. The removable leather shoulder strap is also an added bonus for you can wear it in your shoulder or cross-body.

Aside from these features, we are also loving the good color combination on this one! The bright yellow color paired with the maroon-browish color is just the right amount of sophistication when it comes to a Louis Vuitton bag.

It measures 8.7′ x 7.5′ x 3.1′ (L x H x W) inches and is priced $3050 USD or €2100 euro via Louis Vuitton boutique.

Independent Contributors all Keen Observers
This new collection of guides for the world’s most exciting cities would not have been possible were it not for our excellent team of 50 contributors, supported by unrivalled editors, translators, copy editors, editorial assistants, production experts and many other professionals. Expert wordsmiths and seasoned communicators are behind every guide in the collection.

To capture the heart and spirit of each city, Louis Vuitton reaches out to journalists, writers, major figures in the world of arts and letters, many of whom divide their time between two cities and whose work often appears in the most prestigious newspapers and magazines. Several authors often collaborate on one city, as is the case for Bangkok, Chicago, Paris, Prague, Singapore, Istanbul, Milan and Shanghai. Their contributions, joined with those of artists, businesspeople, creative geniuses of various stripes, all backed by the authority and experience of Louis Vuitton, make each City Guide a publication like no other – original, offbeat and invaluable. Bursting with curiosity, cosmopolitan, irreverent, playful and literary, each guide reflects the personalities of its contributors.

All of them are astute observers of life and wear their vast cultural knowledge with ease and elegance. They have the rare gift of being able to appreciate both the frivolous and the essential, seeking out what is truly magnificent in the many little pleasures each city has to offer.

A Personal View of the City from a Special Guest

Each Louis Vuitton City Guide includes the participation of a special guest contributor, who all speak from personal experience of their home cities. Local celebrities or insiders, they take the reader on a personal exploration of their city, along the way sharing tips on their favorite spots: a first person singular initiation to the city. At various points throughout the guides and at the end of each chapter, these guest contributors open their personal address books and divulge several secret preferred haunts.

For example, Prince M.L. Poomchai Chumbala suggests some of the elegant highlights to discover in Bangkok, while the film director Ivan Zachariáš takes the reader for a stroll around his favorite parts of central Prague. Catherine Colonna, French ambassador to Rome, paints a highly personal picture of the Eternal City and Naomi Beckwith, a curator at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, creates a fascinating portrait of her city. Plus there is the very talented interior designer Faye Toogood in London, the great director Takeshi Kitano in Tokyo, the actor Guillaume Gallienne and his wife Amandine in Paris. Some singular new voices offering an entertaining and unexpected look at the cities they love.

Noted Photographers Capture Views of Each City Exclusively for Louis Vuitton

The Louis Vuitton on City Guides have always placed special emphasis on the finely crafed contributions of their authors, supporting them in their quest to find just the right words and an appropriately elegant style to reveal the soul of each city. Without departing in any way from this philosophy, the City Guides now include photographic contributions to o er their readers an additional perspective, not merely to illustrate the text.

The photography collective Tendance Floue has produced a new series of images for the City Guides and some exclusive photographs for the Louis Vui on City Guide App which are proposed
in the Scenic Route chapter. The collective’s photographers sensitively capture the charms and distinctive allure of destination in original ways.

Founded in 1991, Tendance Floue, a collective of thirteen photographers sees itself as a laboratory, exploring the world and working together to open up new horizons and diversify approaches in contemporary photography. Apart from the personal aspect of their work, Tendance Floue’s members have all taken on the shared goal of contributing to a wider photographic mission. By joining, combining, comparing and contrasting their images, they move their work beyond the limits of individual creation to something entirely new. Tendance Floue looks behind every door, experiments with all techniques and processes used in contemporary photography, without taboos.

The Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag

Handbags

Louis Vuitton has served up some great bags as of late. Rapid recall of a few of our favorites: TheDora, The Garance, and The Petite Malle. PurseBop even speculates that the Louis Vuitton Capucinescould reach classic status.

Today, we excitedly introduce a new LV bag with some promising potential: The Louis Vuitton City Steamer

louis-vuitton-city-steamer-gm-fashion-show-selection--M51031_PM2_Front view

History and Specs

The Louis Vuitton City Steamer first appeared in the Cruise 2016 runway show and received lots of hype immediately after its debut. The City Steamer finally arrived in stores at the beginning of this month, and the buzz still hasn’t stopped. What’s all this talk about? The LV City Steamer just looks a little too familiar…some may say, very Birkin-esque. Before you can decide whether you’re yay or nay on the Birkin similarities, let’s take a closer look…

The City Steamer is a modernized version of LV’s original steamer luggage bag. The bag is very structured and roomy, which make it very functional for carrying travel essentials and other business documents. Adding to the travel element of City Steamer, the bag features an engraved padlock in the center and an embossed luggage tag. Other functional features include a double zip enclosure and a detachable shoulder strap. The City Steamer comes in 3 different sizes, PM, MM, and GM.

Creative director, Nicolas Ghesquiere seemed to carefully design the City Steamer with a clear purpose in mind. Overall, the City Steamer is very sleek, minimalistic, and appropriately functional. The exterior details that are present don’t detract from the bag’s silhouette. The handles have the same attachments as the Dora bag and the gold padlock dangles elegantly from the middle. With various sizes and leather options, the LV City Steamer can hold its own in daytime or evening occasions.

Louis Vuitton City Steamer Prices

Style Price in USD
Louis Vuitton City Steamer PM $3,550
Louis Vuitton City Steamer MM $4,100

City Steamer vs. Birkin

From first glance, the City Steamer may scream “Birkin”especially if you focus on the gold padlock. However, as far as the silhouette itself, if the City Steamer does mimic the Birkin, it only does so innocuously. The bag’s rectangular shape is fairly common as seen by the structured bag trend this year. It’s hard to decide whether we should have a grievance with the gold padlock or not. Instead of asking “Does the City Steamer look too much like the Birkin?”, a better question to ask is: “Is the City Steamer special enough for us?”

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2014 City Bags Ad Campaign Featuring Michelle Williams

Louis Vuitton News

Following her highly successful debut as the face of Louis Vuitton, actress Michelle Williams is back this spring in a second advertising campaign spotlighting three key city bags: the new Lockit, the Capucines, and the iconic Alma.

Photographed once again by Peter Lindbergh, whose sensitive portraits embodied the spirit of the first campaign, Michelle Williams is here revealed in a new light, bringing her special acting talents to bear as she projects three different facets of femininity in a series of visuals styled by Carine Roitfeld.

For the Lockit, Louis Vuitton’s contemporary reinterpretation of its classic 1950s design, Michelle Williams is the essence of the stylish, self-confident Parisienne. Her nonchalant poses reflect the understated elegance of the new day bag in supple Veau Cachemire leather, which is featured in chic pastel shades. For the Alma, the actress is in playful spirits, showcasing the bag’s eye-popping colors of Epi leather as she perches on a pile of trunks. The ladylike Capucines, meanwhile, is ideally complemented by a more restrained, sophisticated mood.

From the compelling combination of force and fragility of the first campaign, to the vibrant contrasts of this second outing, Michelle Williams – as she has done so many times on screen – makes her own her latest role as the multi-faceted Louis Vuitton woman.

First rising to prominence in Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain (2005), Michelle Williams went on to give critically acclaimed performances in films such as Synecdoche, New York (2008), Shutter Island (2010), and My Blue Valentine (2010). In 2011, her performance as Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn earned her a Golden Globe and her third Oscar nomination. Michelle Williams has finished filming Suite Française, which is based on the award-winning novel by Irène Némirovsky, discovered decades after the writer’s death in Auschwitz.

The new Louis Vuitton advertising campaign with Michelle Williams will break in the May 2014 issues of magazines worldwide.

Louis Vuitton City Bags: A Natural History

Accessories

In October 2013 Rizzoli NY releases a surprising volume: a natural history of Louis Vuitton City Bags. This book combines a unique, appealing approach with almost a scientific play on iconic shapes.

The first comprehensive taxonomy of Louis Vuitton’s City Bags, a range of women’s handbags that date back to turn of the 20th century. Featuring the trademarks of the House, City Bags represent the most successful line of accessories in the history of modern fashion—and were instrumental in making Louis Vuitton synonymous with modern luxury.

These soft-sided bags grew out of the various pieces of portable luggage that were themselves packed inside the trunks and wardrobes that had long ago represented the heritage of the company, and in a hundred years diversified to body forth every conceivable function demanded by the modern woman. Profoundly influential, they are now known by name — Speedy, Papillon, Alma, Lockit, Noé, Bucket, Neverfull, Sac Plat & the Pochette.

Taking a page from attempts to organize entire classes of industrial design objects in the previous century, this volume chronicles the development of the City Bags through a system mimicking the scientific classification of plants and animals. Tracing the origins and history of these bag “families” from the four pieces of hand-carried luggage that served as their direct, generative “ancestors” — the Steamer, the Vanity, the Alzer & the Keepall — the book carefully examines the earliest specimens of City Bag through today’s most sought-after collectibles.

Apart from providing as complete a genealogy for each of the main handbag “families”, the book examines how the artistic collaborations engaged by Louis Vuitton in the last two decades have hastened the evolution of City Bags, transforming the basic types into increasingly divergent forms.

A classic Natural History book, this work is presented in a canvas clamshell with marble paper and a set of eleven illustrated plates. Available in French, English and Italian this limited edition will be on sale exclusively for Louis Vuitton stores and on louisvuitton.
