Louis Vuitton’s Petite-Malle bags pack in oodles of glamour

Everyone and their mother was stunned by Nicolas Ghesquière’s Louis Vuitton debut collection. But what truly has our mouths agog is this. The Petite-Malle Bag, which was unveiled along with the garments. Is it a clutch? Is it a case? It is sheer awesomeness! Especially since it can be carried like a clutch or by a removable shoulder strap for a kind of functional elegance.

The petite malles or mini trunks, as they translate to, are a clear homage to the Louis Vuitton trunk tradition. Yet Ghesquière has not only played charming by unleashing them but sparked a fashion revolution (ask the ladies who’ll be putting up a fight for them). Not Natalia Vodianova though, no. Not when she’s with billionaire boyfriend and son of LVMH chairman. The soon-to-be mother was seen next to beau Antoine Arnault with a ravishing orange on the day of the show.

Available in two enviable avatars, these diminutive babies don a classic monogrammed style or come with removable covers in tow, which is such glamorous genius as the covers reveal hard-case trunks in metallic colors or the brand’s épi leather. Their boxy looks are complimented by signature details like a fold over lid top, clasps and buckles. So, which one would you pick? Save it if you’re going to look up prices, the brand will have to set them first.
