Louis Vuitton Petite Boite Chapeau Bag
As seen on the Cruise 2018 Runway, the Louis Vuitton Petite Boîte Chapeau Bag has finally arrived. The shape, the look, the charisma, this bag is not an ordinary handbag. And you might wonder; can I carry it on my shoulder or is it a clutch bag? Or maybe both?
But let’s start with the name; Petite means small in French and boîte chapeau translates to hat box. Obviously hat boxes were used to store hats and they were often carried by travellers. Hat boxes were very popular in the 19th century, matching the popularity of carrying hats for both day and night.
The Petite Boîte Chapeau Bag is a small bag but who says that small can’t create a big impact. On the runway, the model showed how this adorable day-to-evening bag can be carried. Just grab on the top handle buckle strap and tote it down town. The buckle strap can also be adjusted to your comfort.
But there is more, and it’s a good news. The Petite Boîte Chapeau Bag also comes with a leather strap for shoulder carry. This leather strap has not been displayed on the image because it’s removable and adjustable. The strap should be long enough to carry cross body or on your shoulder. Isn’t this exciting?
This bag is actually perfect in line with Louis Vuitton’s principles, history and tradition. The Hat Boxes were used by travellers to carry their hats and because they come with a top handle, people were either piling them up on the luggage or carry it as a tote.
What’s more? This bag is small but practical, it does fit an iPhone 7. It also comes with an removable leather ID holder. For now you can either choose the Monogram Canvas style or the Reversed Monogram Canvas and both looks timeless.
The interior is quite simple. Inside you will find one big compartment to store your daily essentials.
