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.”

Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 ‘Race’ Speedy30 Bandouliere

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

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.
