Louis Vuitton 2012 Spring Vachetta Leather Tote Bag
As rumors circulate regarding the possible departure of Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton’s newly appointed Style Director, Kim Jones, has shown the fashion world that the luxury designer label is in good hands. With a successful runway showing for his Spring 2012 collection this past summer and the recent Designer of the Year nod at the British Fashion Awards, Jones looks to revitalize the French fashion house with fresh, youthful cuts and tributes to brand’s storied luggage past. One of the more popular pieces from the forthcoming collection is this leather tote bag featuring Gaston Vuitton’s – the grandson of founder Louis Vuitton and eventual successor – personal monogram, a geometric “V” print. Manufactured with thin brown vachetta leather – an untreated, special-care required leather typically seen only on handles – this tote also comes complete two size varying handles for both light and heavy loads. This tote along with other items from Louis Vuitton’s spring collection will be available soon with additional release details on its way.
