Safari

Louis Vuitton Flight Bag Safari


As seen from Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2009 Runway Show, the Flight Bag Safari is named after the overland journey by tourists to Africa, and coalesces the comfort of a flight bag and the exotic spirit of the hunt. Safari is crafted from supple calfskin and perforated with the Louis Vuitton signature with gold leather backing and with Stephen Sprouse Leopard jacquard fabric made from a complex and intricate weaving technique. To add more exoticness to the bag, a python skin lining is added.

Safari’s large main compartment and original detailing mean that this bag is practical and stylish. The bag also features an exterior zipped pocket with an eye-catching metal and calfskin pompon attached to the zipper pull, and an inside double flat pocket. Safari can be carried by hand or on the shoulder thanks to its soft and intricately designed chain handle.

Safari measures 11″ x 12.6″ x 5.9″, exclusively available at Louis Vuitton for $4040.

    I've been thinking about getting this bag for months now but my biggest concern is scratching the exterior leather. I'm pretty hard on my bags so I'm afraid of ruining the outside by scratches, etc. How durable is the exterior and if it gets scratched, is it repairable? How difficult is it to fix? Thanks for your help!
