Last year we couldn’t quite believe that Fendi was going to start selling individual shoulder straps for bags, but as it turns out these straps are pretty popular! Now, of course, other luxury brands are jumping aboard the trend-wagon with the latest being Louis Vuitton. The brand’s Bandoulière collection consists of 90cm long straps in a number of different prints and colors allowing you to switch up the look of your favorite handbag from time to time.
Choose from Epi leather in bright colors, python and animal prints as well as the traditional monogram canvas. If you’re looking for more personalization, Louis Vuitton will hot stamp your initials to your bag strap for a more unique and personal feel. Some of the straps come with gold tone clasps while others have silver tone clasps so you’re free to choose the variant that suits your best.
The Epi leather straps are priced at $560 while the classic monogram canvas styles are priced at $495. Whether you love or hate the idea of designer bag straps, you simply can’t ignore them! We have to give Louis Vuitton and the rest of the bag strap brigade props for inventive use and marketing of leftover leather scraps!
