While the Louis Vuitton trophy case might be for winners of the FIFA World Cup, we can imagine one other such accessory fit for men who’re winners in spheres other than football- the new Porte-Documents Voyage (PDV) leather briefcase by Louis Vuitton.
Keeping the aesthetics of old-school travel bags intact, this season’s PDV is aiming at appealing to the masculine urbanite who wants a stow-easy for his laptop and documents without having to compromise on exquisite Taurillon leather that’s soft and grained. What he can, however, hope to do away with is ghastly sightings of in-your-face monograms.
Because Vuitton or not, the kind of polished neutrals and opulent shades that have made their way into the new briefcase are best left rich and untouched. At this point, it wouldn’t be unwise to say that the Aviation and Rajasthan inspired collection debuted by the maison at Paris Men’s Fashion Week makes for some great PDV compliments.
