Well, well, well, look who has stepped in! Borrowing its name from rue des Capucines in Paris, where Louis Vuitton opened his first store in 1854, came in the Louis Vuitton Capucines Bag. Like a superb lady-like luxury, this handbag is your ultimate goal for flaunting LV this season. Topstitched LV logo edge, timeless and sophisticated minimalism, all leather pattern, flap-up and flap-in style and an extremely functional interior; it barged in your life with everything you ever wanted in a handbag.
Marking the onset of some newfangled innovations, the year 2013 was certainly remarkable; you might have seen that W bag (wide-gusseted, remember!) which came like a storm! And then came the Louis Vuitton Capucines bag in Fall 2013 collection, deriving its some features from some earlier Louis Vuitton handbag. It’s just not your usual handbag, but a testament to the brilliant craftsmanship of the brand.
You know where we first spotted this Capucines? It was with your favourite Angelina Jolie, matching perfectly with her under-the-radar and elegant style.
Do you often get distracted by a handbag? If yes, then this exemplary design is just made for distraction. Not convinced? Then, just look at its semi-rigid handles in a reinforced rolled pattern attached to lovely jewel-like rings, distinctive flap (can be worn in two ways) and an optional leather shoulder strap. Oh, and how can we forget about the most brilliant feature of this bag that makes it a classic! Its the iconic LV that is beautifully top-stitched at the edge, it’s the part of the design itself if you keep the flap tucked in.
Talking about the dynamic flap, are we? All according to the wearer it can be adjusted; either in a tucked-in style or moved outside for show. If tucked in, like those in promotional shoots, eyes behold the beauty that is the LV monogram (part leather part hardware) ingrained in the design itself. And, if the flap is out for everyone to see, then you see a more subtle Monogram flower that plays a secondary role; in that way the most high-end consumers are satisfied with a non-flaunting version of LV.
Louis Vuitton has long held the honour of making Monogram canvas bags, and now it started manufacturing in more different leathers. You can see a Capucines bag in two sizes MM and GM with a 1.5 inch difference in width between these bags. Moreover, the bag comes in silver and gold hardware, matching with the color.
Seasons after seasons, there’s only once that the interior like a Capucines comes. The handbags interior is fully leather lined with a gorgeously partitioned interior that is roomy enough for all your day-time essentials. There’s a clasp and a ring to secure the bag’s contents and a middle large zippered compartment, flat pockets and two large compartments to fit your entire world.
