Louis Vuitton New Bags – Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection – A Homage To Japanese Culture

Fashion Trends

The Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection is the fashion God’s love of Japan coming to life. Nicolas Ghesquière designed this set of Louis Vuitton new bags with only one thing in mind: japanese art and culture. Never have the flavors of Japan ever colored a range of bags in a captivating manner as Ghesquière’s. And we could not be more jubilant! It is no secret that the master designer is in love with the Japanese culture. It is only fitting that he would dedicate an entire fashion range of Louis Vuitton bags to the mystical island.

On a first look, you would only see a wonderful medley of colors and patterns. But those with an eye for fashion and style would not fail to recognize the wonderful style. It is an unusual, yet captivating charm weaved into these bags. The great fashion house unveiled the Louis Vuitton new bags at Miho museum, an hour’s drive from Tokyo. The collection features the typical Japanese themes such as Samurais, Manga, Kabuki, Obi belts. And, of course, the enchanting Japanese landscape. All were designed by the much-beloved Kansaï Yamamoto, with whom the Louis Vuitton designer has partnered up with.

Here are a few highlights of the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway

  • Louis Vuitton Speedy bags that almost entirely discarded the traditional LV Monogram canvas

If you know your handbags, you would be familiar with the traditional design of Louis Vuitton Speedy bags. That means sparse designs against a canvas of LV Monograms. There were a few Louis Vuitton speedy bags that sported this conventional pattern with Japanese-themed designs. Other bags had completely discarded tradition and done more bold, vivid Japanese patterns. The darker, sober colors of LV were seen to be replaced by the more bold colors of Japan.

  • Peeping eyes bags

This was a stunning new addition to Louis Vuitton’s collections. Yamamoto took a very bold step in adding a pair of huge eyes, peeping form the flaps of the bags. Peeping eyes bags include all kinds of handbags – Speedy bags, Petite Malle Cases, crossbodies and so on. The peeping eyes are characteristic of Japanese drama, which involves exaggerated eye-gestures. The addition of such unusually big eyes was a show-stopper. Perhaps it might have been used in this manner for the first time.

  • Japanese lanterns-inspired Bucket Bags

Nothing reflected Ghesquière’s passion for Japan as much as the Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags. These Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags are designed base on traditional Japanese lanterns, and designed with sober Japanese patterns. One of the Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags also stuck to tradition and sported the conventional LV Monogram canvas.

  • Tradition was not entirely eschewed

How could LV leave behind entirely the typical, chocolate-brown LV Monogram canvas? This is the pattern that is the hallmark of Louis Vuitton bags. The Louis Vuitton new bags range also has plenty of bags, designed as per tradition. The LV Monogram canvas features on every type of bag. That means all the classics: Petite Malle Cases, Speedy Bags, Hat Box Bags, Hobo Bags and so on.

All in all, the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection is a daring new reinvention. This is generally expected from an all new bag collection. Chanel and Dior’s had stunning presentations of their captivating designs. After these Louis Vuitton had to do something to outdo expectations. Besides, it was a fitting tribute to the culture and history of Japan. As Ghesquière himself said, “Every cruise collection is a discovery and it’s a game of integrating the culture of the country we are visiting with a point of view that is very French and Parisian.”

Fashion Trends

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

With mere days to go before Louis Vuitton opens the doors to their #LVFragment pop-up at Surrender Orchard Road, here are a couple of things you need to be updated on. For starters, streetwear legend and founder of Fragment Design, Hiroshi Fujiwara, will be in Singapore for the exclusive by-invite only launch party on 21 April 2017. Next, the Singapore pop-up (which will be the second city in the world after Tokyo to launch this special collaboration collection) will also be featuring some exclusive pieces that you won’t get anywhere else. Yes, guys, these exclusives are strictly limited edition and once they’re gone, they’re gone.

IMAGES: LOUIS VUITTON

Priced from SGD440 to SGD2860, there are 8 pieces in all that will only be available in limited quantities. For starters, there’s the Doudou Louis Bear everybody wants, along with the small Monogram Eclipse Nano Bag (click here to see it in its full glory) that is another must-buy. The other bag, the larger Cabas in black fabric, is limited to just 10 pieces, which also means it will be gone in a blink of an eye. Rounding up the exclusives, there’s the brooch set and carabiner key holder, as well as all the rainbow pieces which include the Hawaiian shirt, tee, bandana set and the bandana stole.

The pop-up opens to the public on 22 April and will run all the way to 7 May 2017, with exclusives and the general collection made available for sale. The only difference? Once the exclusives sell out, they will not be replenished. In other words, it’s time to start getting in line because once they’re gone, they’re truly gone.

Louis Vuitton presents the Cruise 2017 Ad Campaign with new colors of the Capucines. And if you’ve been following us so far, the Capucines Bag is an uprising star; it sits next to the Speedy Bag in the future.

The Capcucines Bag has a flap – when you move the flap out, your bag will flaunt with the Monogram Flower. When you hide the flap inside, the gorgeous XL signature will appear.

Another colorful style that got out attention is the Louis Vuitton Twist Bag in Multicolor Orange, Blue and White. This combination is quite unique but looks fantastic. It’s just perfect with white clothing and styles, and especially ideal for the Summer.

With a 3D logo signature in the center and the beautiful shoulder chain, you can keep this bag for decades and it will still be in-style.

So which one of these new bags do you really love?

Louis Vuitton’s cruise 2017 show

Fashion Trends

Nicolas Ghesquière set the stage for the Resort season in Rio de Janeiro this afternoon. Celebrities and fashion insiders—including Alicia Vikander, Alessandra Ambrosio, Zendaya and Jaden Smith—flocked to Brazil for the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 show at the Oscar Niemeyer-designed Niterói Contemporary Art Museum. The collection drew inspiration from the city's vibrant art and culture, featuring pieces in splashycolors and prints, and futuristic silhouettes with sporty details. Accessories were equally cool—with such standouts as the label's signature trunk made over to look like a boombox and gladiator sandals with an athletic update.


Rio de Janeiro is in the eye of a storm, beset by a collapsing government, economic turmoil and the zika-virus-carrying A. Aegypti mosquito. On top of that, it has an Olympic Games to deliver in 68 days. The metro system isn't finished, let alone the beach volleyball stadium which will be the pride of Copacabana Beach but is currently nothing more than a mass of scaffolding in the sand.

Into this maelstrom last night came Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of womenswear at Louis Vuitton, to showcase his latest cruise collection for the French luxury behemoth. At first glance, his choice of the Brazilian port city seems almost as quixotic as Karl Lagerfeld’s decision to stage a Chanel cruise show in Cuba three weeks ago. It's certainly as much of a fashion ‘first’ as the Havana spectacular since there's never before been a major international catwalk show in Rio. But while the Cubans have been cut off from the wider world in fashion terms for about 60 years, Brazilians have very much kept up with the rest of us. Not only do they have genuine card-carrying supermodels - Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima to name merely three - they are also avid consumers of Vuitton’s handbags, luggage and accessories. And now, surely, of its fashion too.

Ghesquière is a lover of architecture, so the choice of venue was almost as important for him as the clothes he paraded there. And his building of choice was certainly spectacular. The Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói, designed by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and built in the 1990s, looks like a white flying saucer that has touched down on the tip of a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea about an hour’s drive from the centre of Rio. The only way out of the building is down a curving spool of crimson concrete that spirals down to the ground, creating the most dramatic runway any of the 47 seasoned models there can ever have walked.   Louis Vuitton was founded in 1854 in order to help the wealthy travel in comfort and style, and Ghesquière has been true to the brief.

There was a sport and an athleticism to the clothes, whether white-stretch, multi-pocketed trousers, or performance-fabric, zip-fastened mini-dresses, that indicated that, whoever the Vuitton woman is, she’ll be going places this autumn. She’ll also be striding out in comfort since the shoes and boots shown on the catwalk were resolutely forgiving neoprene - and were the thong-toed lace-up boots inspired by flipflops? There were more nods to Brazil in the footballer print inspired by the local artist Aldemir Martins’ paintings of Pelè that adorned some tank tops. Meanwhile the ruffles, hot blues and reds, and cutaway sections on many of the mini-dresses evoked a spirit of carnival.

As did the bags - some of which were styled to look exactly like a 1980s boom box, while others delighted with their fringing, graffiti decoration and vibrant pinks, yellows and scarlets. ‘I’m a Frenchman who’s come to present a French luxury collection but it’s also tropical and exotic,’ explained Ghesquière. ‘Nature is explosive here, and at the same time you have these wonderful buildings. It’s a beautiful chaos.’

Watching this joyous marriage of Vuitton and Rio was a hand-picked group of celebrities including the French icon Catherine Deneuve, the Swedish Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, Jaden (son of Will) Smith, and Adriana Lima. Beautiful chaos indeed.

Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 Fashion Show took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at the beautiful Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum, which set against the Atlantic Ocean and designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer.

“I so admire the power of Oscar Niemeyer’s conviction. His vision, his radicality, his utopia even. Being able to show a fashion collection in such an architecturally powerful space is a sensorial experience. In Rio de Janeiro, what I saw most of all was movement and an explosive energy that lives somewhere between modernism and tropicality. I was fascinated by the constant duality between nature and urbanism and the pictorial explosion it creates. For me, the main question was how to incorporate into my collection all these elements that are part of Brazilian culture, without forgetting that I am just a visitor who brings his own Parisian and French cultural references to the moment.” said the creative director of the house of Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière.

The collection is sporty and artful with asymmetrical hems, peek-a-boo cutouts and lightweight layers. The accessories are futuristic. The gladiator-style sporty flat thong sandals and sneaker ankle boots are functional and practical, featuring molded comfortable sneaker sole with strap up or lace up around the ankle. The pointed toe booties are designed with T-bar front and finished in contrasted colors. Leather oxfords with large ankle cuff completed the silhouette with an edgy, confident and relaxed attitude.

Louis Vuitton continues to outdo itself with must see shows in exotic locales. Rio de Janeiro was the backdrop for their recent Cruise 2017 show, and the brand added ample sparkle by inviting well heeled celebrity guest and style stars.
