I’ve managed to grab hold of these precious photos of a really old Louis Vuitton catalog. I’m really not sure when this was published but if you know, please do comment or contact me.
Anyway, I’ve been addicted to Louis Vuitton since forever but unfortunately, I’m still on the stage of “saving up” for my first ever LV. But apart from bags and accessories, I really want to have an LV Catalog coz I love looking at the bags and stuff. If you tend to have a copy of the catalog (any season), and you don’t use it anymore or have a spare one, you can give it to me! Haha.. I promise you, someday, I’ll have my bag and catalog inside a huge “Brown Paper Bag”. But well, enough about me me me, i’ll now show you the vintage Louis Vuitton Catalog! This would be a kick ass journey to the past!
This is the cover of the Catalog, very simple brown background and a recognizable LV logo at the side.
Avec des volez voguez voyages valises. With flying fashionable travel bags.
The Le-flyel and Le Stratos traveling trunks. Have you noticed the the Le-flyel looks like the Alzer? Hmm..
Le Valises Stratos or The Stratos Suitcases Collection is line of hard sided luggage with a recognizable leather trim at the corners. Very old school!
The Le Serviettes is a collection of men’s briefcases. The Bag #421 (Porte-documents voyage) is the vintage version of today’s Soft Briefcase.
Here’s some familiar looking bags but with slight difference. The bag at the lower left looks like the Keepall but does not exactly have the same shape. The bag at the lower center looks like a luggage version of the Papillon. Then the two bags at the upper right looks like the modern day Noe, but they have an outer zipper and vertical leather trimmings.
Well, that’s it for now. I really love the bag in the upper left of the last photo. I love it’s shape and it reminds me of the Cabas Soana. Anyway, the are still tons of photos and i’d be uploading them soon. But for now, you may want to subscribe via email to recieve updates from I LVOE LV. You can sign up below:
