It’s not everyday that French luxury fashion house of Louis Vuitton launches a brand new handbag design. The maison has been synonymous with classic and isconic designs such as the Keepall duffle bag, the Neverfull tote bag and the Petite Malle clutch, to name a few. There is a timeless quality in Louis Vuitton accessories that allow for these silhouettes and designs to transcend decades, trends and become staples in a woman or man’s wardrobe. This is precisely why whenever the French maison releases a new handbag, the fashion set and fashion enthusiasts around the world are all ears.
Named after Paris’ Pont Neuf, the oldest and most celebrated bridge that sits opposite Louis Vuitton’s headquarters, the LV Pont 9 marks the first release of the house’s new eponymous leather line under the creative direction of Nicolas Ghesquière. The LV Pont 9 is a shoulder bag that is perfect for everyday wear and can easily be dressed up for special occasions. This balance of everyday simplicity with a touch of something special is exactly why Louis Vuitton bags are so beloved by the masses. The understated design of a flap with luxurious touches of gold and buttery smooth calfskin leather, makes for an extremely versatile accessory in your wardrobe arsenal.
While we can’t resist the cuteness of a tiny bag, the LV Pont 9 hits the sweet spot when it comes to size. It features two roomy compartments and a novel Monogram flower-inspired magnetic closure such as a phone, wallet and lipstick as well as new essentials like hand sanitiser and face mask.
The LV Pont 9 shoulder bag is available in a diverse range of colours to suit your mood and style. Alongside the monochromatic and elegant Noir and delicate Crème, the French maison is also offering more vibrant colours such as deep sunset-like Summer Gold; feminine and free-spirited Rose Dahlia; and soft and dreamy Bleu Orage.
Naturally, it’s already a celebrity favourite, seen on the shoulders of Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone, our January 2020 cover star Alicia Vikander and so many more. Check them all out below!
