Louis Vuitton Bento Box Bag
What’s playful but still practical and classic-looking? Well, it’s the Louis Vuitton Bento Box Bag from the Cruise 2018 Collection. In short for those that do not know what ‘Bento Box’ is; a Bento Box is a single portion home-packed meal in Japanese Cuisine. When creating the bag, Louis Vuitton was inspired by this idea.
And it’s not the first-time that Louis Vuitton designed a bag inspired by the Japanese Culture. Consider the latest Pochette Kabuki Bag or the beautiful Kimono Coated Bag. Louis Vuitton also regularly collaborate with unique Japanese artist in creating handbags like the Cherry Blossom Bag.
To be honest, if you remove the handle and the shoulder strap, the Bento Box Bag also reminds me of a take-away box that’s often used by Chinese take-away restaurants. This bag has a boxy shape with curvy design on the top. The bottom is supported with a leather patch and put together with two golden studs.
The center comes with the signature LV lock and padlock closure, which looks stunning. The top is embellished with a removable handle and it also comes with a removable leather strap for shoulder carry. The mix of colors is also interesting if you consider the Reversed Monogram Print version; there are black, dark brown and light brown colors, finished with gold hardware.
Inside this small bag, you will find one compartment and an interior pocket. This Bento Box Bag can also be used as a clutch bag because the handle and shoulder strap can be removed. Or you can consider carrying it as a small shoulder bag.
