Handbags at Louis Vuitton have been a diverse surprise this season with the offerings ranging from print splashed monograms to boxy mini-trunks, now after a long wait we finally have some news on the leather handbag front. The brand has launched a new bag- he Volta, for this season. The Volta is available in a single size (11.8 x 11.0 x 5.1 inches) and is crafted from Taurillon cowhide and features the same hardware that we saw on the Capucines. The messenger bag is revealed in campaign images that once again star actress Michelle Williams.
The brand calls their Volta bag a perfect fit for “women who appreciate luxury but also love the on-trend allure of a messenger bag.” The bag stays true to this with a simple but highly functional design. The soft leather bag is available in four shades Kaki (a neutral taupe), Coquelicot (a vibrant red), Petale (a blushing pink) and Noir (ubiquitous black). The appeal of this bag is simple, it allows brand connoisseurs to stay true to their favorite while eschewing the logo heavy monogram that LV is famous for. Discreet bags appear to be gaining popularity over their hardware heavy cousins these days.
The Volta is priced at $4,300 and can be purchased online at louisvuitton.com.
