Louis Vuitton Mahina Galatea MM in Opal
Once upon a time, there was a very strange sculptor named Pygmalion. He carved a woman of incomparable beauty and named it Galatea. He dressed it with the most ravishing ornaments and showered it with the loveliest flowers. Every night he prayed to the goddess Aphrodite to turn the lifeless form into a real woman. His wish was granted. Just like Pygmalion’s Galatea, the new Louis Vuitton Mahina Galatea is meant to be adorned and passionately wished for.
A first look at the Mahina Galatea will make you notice its drooping silhouette. The slouchy and relatively unstructured form gives it a perfectly casual, comfortable, and easy-going aura. Made of supple calfskin leather and adorned with delicate pleats and a soft microfibre lining, the Mahina Galatea exudes both softness and femininity. Without a doubt, it perfectly encapsulates a simple kind of elegance with a sophisticated charm. The subtle shininess of its golden brass hardware gives it an understated yet exquisite look. Its iconic toron handles give the Mahina Galatea a sturdy and firm appearance, complementing the fineness of the leather. Its exterior has a large double-zipped opening while its interior has zipped, patch, and phone pockets – making it both easily and conveniently accessible from the outside and inside. This shoulder carry with four protective metal feet at the base can be brought anywhere and anytime. If Pygmalion were here and saw this, we know what he’s probably going to be creating next.
Mahina Galatea comes in two sizes: PM (13.8″ x 7.9″ x 5.9″) and MM (15.7″ x 7.9″ x 7.9″), and three colors: Grenat, Noir, and Opal (MM only). Available at Louis Vuitton stores for US$3050 and approx. US$3600 for the PM and MM respectively.
