Posted in Bags, Louis Vuitton

Bring a little amount of pizzazz to your fate by adding Louis Vuitton Alma Bag to your current handbags collection and get awe-struck with its bowling style one-off look depicting the iconic domed shape and its 80 years old history. Rihanna, Jaquline Kennedy, Blake Lively and Naomi Watts are seldom seen flaunting these marvellous totes. On top of that, Alma bag’s sleek design, sophisticated touch, elegant curved and structured silhouette make it stand next to the Speedy, in the crowd of iconic handbags history. In case you really are craving for a ritzy classic beauty apt to use every day, professionally, all in a modish city style then this Louis Vuitton bag is your ultimate destiny.

Whispering a little secret here let’s know about bag’s unique ties with Madame Gabrielle Chanel, are we talking about the ever-famous Coco Chanel, of course we are! The Alma bag was designed at a special request of Coco as a unique travelling bag, and it was kept a secret between the two until a few years. We do believe that this handbag was launched in 1930, but in actuality, its design is dated back to the original version of 1925. And you know what! This Alma bag was the second handbag in the fashion house of Louis Vuitton.

If we go at the namesake then it too has a long history. Firstly, the Gaston-Louis Vuitton designed the bag, naming it ‘Squire’, and then the second name of this handbag was ‘Champs Elysees’. Ultimately, ‘Alma’ was named after the tree lined square in Paris where the Avenue Montaigne meets the Seine river- “Place de L’Alma”. Also, this Alma Bag was inspired by the art deco movement, boasting similar dominant and architectural lines.


These high-end accessories highlight rolled leather top handles detailed with polished hardware, two large exterior pockets, detachable cross-body strap, a wrap around zipper, keys clochette with lock and protective bottom studs. Not to forget the bag’s curved and structured silhouette that makes it all the more iconic in character. Sizes offered are; BB, PM, GM, and don’t just talk about the colours, every shade that you can imagine is available.

Blowing your calm mind, here are the exotic textural leathers in this handbag. Whereas the Monogram coated canvas is the most iconic range of Louis Vuitton, which is durable as well, the Monogram Vernis leather is shiny and graceful. As an added bonus, you are blessed with one more classic leather variety and that’s Damier.


A completely pragmatic interior, adds five stars to this Louis Vuitton Alma Bag. The top zipper opens to reveal a soft microfiber lining with a main storage compartment and an additional patch pocket. The double zip feature helps the bag to open wider, blessing you with a spacious space to store all your necessities for the day. Your small wallet, cash, cards, money and everything is safe here.

Two exterior patch pockets add some more space to your handbag, now you can keep your grab-and-go stuff here. Even if you keep your bag on the table or at the floor, the contents won’t spill at all, of course because you have those little-little feet at your bag’s bottom, case in point; the bag will stay upright. It’s designed keeping in mind all the functional aspects in mind, so isn’t Alma a perfect office to evening bag for you!
