The City Steamer Bag was introduced in 2015 as a part of the Fall Winter Collection. Nobody knew its destiny, but Nicolas Ghesquière pushed it to become the house’s next classic bag. Now fast forward three years later, this handbag not only survived but it thrived because of the iconic elements inspired by the house’s historic Steamer Luggage.
The Louis Vuitton City Steamer EW Bag is introduced for the Fall 2018 Collection. It’s not only smaller in size but it has also a different shape.
The Supple City Steamer EW Bag brings casual elegance to the workwear silhouette. It’s crafted with a classic look in single colors. The body is made in grained calfskin to not only give us a luxury feel, but also to make it long-lasting, durable and strong.
It comes with 2 falling down Toron handles and 1 front flat pocket with turn lock and loop for padlock. There is also a nametag attached with metallic LV signature. And another LV Circle hot-stamped signature is embellished on the back body.
The City Steam EW, PM and MM size
The City Steamer in EW size is a style of its own. Let’s do a comparison, shall we?
The City Steamer Bag in EW measures 13.4’ x 9’ x 5.5’ inches (L x H x W) while the PM size measures 10.5’ x 9’ x 4’ (L x H x W) inches. So the EW is evenly tall as the PM size, but its much bigger in width. The bag is also deeper, so it can store much more stuff than the PM.
Now let’s do quick comparison with the MM size. The MM size measures 12.2’ x 10.5’ x 4.7’ (L x H x W) inches. So what’s the conclusion here? The EW size is even bigger in length when comparing to the MM size. The MM size is taller, but the EW size remains bigger in width.
There is a special security built-in the City Steamer EW Bag – inside you will find a hook to secure belongings. In the interior you can also find a large flat zipped pocket as well as a large main compartment.
