Louis Vuitton has been designing luggage, bags and accessories since 1854. A combination of style, technical innovation and traditional know-how, this highly elegant approach to the art of travel is applied to each of its unique designs. But you don’t have to travel to the ends of the earth to enjoy a complete change of scene! The French capital is inspiring in itself, and a stroll along its streets is like a journey in miniature. The designs of Louis Vuitton’s bags are intimately connected with Paris – the city where the brand first originated – and its different neighborhoods. The chic Right Bank inspired the Montaigne, Marignan and Tuileries models, while the structured lines of the Alma recall the original Art Deco model created in 1934 and named after the pont de l’Alma. The Capucine, launched in 2013, gets its name from the street where Monsieur Vuitton opened his first store in 1854. The contemporary chic of the Left Bank provided the starting point for the Vaugirard, Saint-Placide, Cluny, Soufflot and Grenelle bags. The Dauphine, released in 1976, inspired Nicolas Ghesquière, Artistic Director of Women’s collections, to create a new ultra-modern model. The latest addition to the Louis Vuitton bag range descends from the same lineage. The LV Pont9 pays tribute to the oldest and most famous bridge in the capital, opposite the headquarters of Louis Vuitton. Crafted in smooth, lightly padded calfskin, the bag enjoys a rounded shape and a gusseted construction. Its wide flap and strap are finished with the exclusive Louis Vuitton Circle, a 1930s archive logo reinterpreted by Nicolas Ghesquière. The leather interior features two compartments and two practical pockets, and an invisible Monogram flower-inspired magnetic closure. This novel object of desire is available in a range of colors, including Noir profond, Crème Délicat, deep sunset Summer Gold, feminine Rose Dahlia, and dreamy Bleu Orage.
