Louis Vuitton Capucines Bag: Two Faces
In our last post, we showed the fall ad campaign where Michelle Williams was carrying the brand-new W bag, with sophisticated print options and a bold colored V form crossing in the center. The public’s opinion we found were rather controversial. Monogram doesn’t seems to be everyone’s favorite choice. But no need to look back, here’s something to compensate. Introducing from the F/W 2013 Collection, the Louis Vuitton Capucines bag. LV has re-activated their minimalism inspiration.
First, the name itself is a ‘legend’. Capucines is taken from the street where Louis Vuitton started their first store back in 1854. The name of the street? Rue Des Capucines in Paris. There will be no disappointment when you fully understand how cleverly the design is created; the bag has actually two-faces and can be worn in two ways; the front flap can be hidden inside and it will show the LV initials. The initials are another creation that I love and admire, because it looks like it has been born out from the leather. The second face is when the flap is shown in the exterior, revealing its monogram flower, but also taking away a piece of the minimalistic style I love.

Only by zooming in the details will reveal its true beauty, like the jewel-like rings connecting to the semi-rigid handle, giving it another touch of trés chic appeal. And the specially tailored functional shape, cut-out from Taurillon leather, giving it a luxurious feel and roomy space.
Two sizes are available at your fingertips, in MM or GM. The price difference is minimum, for the MM $5,150 and the GM cost $5,600. Louis Vuitton Capucines’s high ticket is thanks to the expensive and smooth leather that has been integrated and the breath-taking clever design. And I love colors as much as I love candies. This bag is available in a many of shades; Pomme, Clementine, Taupe, Capucine, Orcre, Blue Canard, Quetsche, Blanc Casse, Black, Purple. Which one is your favorite?
It’s no surprise that this bag has been sold-out very quickly on Louis Vuitton e-store. I am sure the SA would love to show you a brand-new piece if you take your time to visit their boutique.
