Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012 Bag Names and Prices


“We decided we wanted to do something very pretty, and very gentle, and very loving, and just fill it with pretty colors and beautiful light, luminous textures, things that were translucent and transparent. We wanted to define the body and to create shapes, but have air and lightness and softness,” said Marc Jacobs backstage after his Spring/Summer 2012 fashion show for Louis Vuitton.

The season’s Leather Goods translate this light, airy spirit, in soft shapes and sorbet shades, and though – as with the ready-to-wear – there are echoes of the strict, fetish-inspired Fall/Winter 2011 collection, notably in the spotlight turned once again on the iconic Lockit bag, the result is quite different.

Monogram Transparence

The Spring/Summer 2012 fashion show opened with variations of the Lockit in sheer nylon voile. Three shapes – a dainty clutch, the classic Lockit and the stretched Lockit East-West – are embroidered inside and out with the Monogram pattern and trimmed with white leather, creating a pure white-on-white look that is one of the key directions of the season.

Jelly

In a variation on the theme of transparency, and in keeping with the sweetly naïve spirit of the season, humble basket bags are elevated to luxury status in metallic patent calfskin, which is simultaneously perforated and embossed to create a three-dimensional effect. Just in case its owner has anything to hide, each basket contains a removable drawstring pouch in tonal jacquard woven with the Monogram pattern.

Mama

An equally sweet, feminine theme has a neat day-to-night pochettes in sky blue or eggshell yellow lambskin swinging from dainty silver chains – bright silver having replaced gold this season as the finish of choice for leather goods and accessories. The butter-soft lambskin is embroidered with the Monogram pattern in tiny cross-stitches, and on the first of two limited editions, the motif is then re-embroidered by hand with translucent glass beads. For the second limited edition, the pochette is rendered in pale, whitewashed crocodile. In each case, the flap is fastened by a tiny silver S-lock – a miniaturized version of the one that has secured Louis Vuitton trunks since the 19th century – which is one of the season’s emblematic details.

Bonded

A second pochette shape on a silver chain comes in two-tone bonded leather, a combination of deerskin and lambskin for a uniquely soft, supple feel. In each case, a strong shade is accented by one of the season’s ice cream pastels – coral with vert d’eau, navy with powder pink, ceramic with soft green – on the inside of the bag and on an outsize zipper pull, which clicks into a tiny silver S-lock on the side.

Monogram Denim

If the Fall/Winter 2011 collection was all about the Lockit, Spring/Summer 2012 brings the Speedy back into the spotlight, though always as a softer, plumper variation of itself. In a casual spirit, a pochette and two sizes of top-handle, all with a removable shoulder strap, come in a pale stonewashed denim woven with the Monogram pattern in silver thread.

Les Extraordinaires Crocodile

Reinterpreted with a flap and in precious crocodile with a vintage, whitewashed patina, the Crocodile Old Speedy Flap is also the first of the season’s two Les Extraordinaires, available in a strictly limited, numbered edition.

Les Extraordinaires Coquille D’Oeuf

The ultimate object of desire – and the emblem of the entire elaborately crafted collection – is a dainty minaudière, its Monogram mosaic painstakingly pieced together for over 600 hours from 12,500 fragments of eggshell. A metaphor indeed for the care and craftsmanship lavished on this collection.

    Omg, it’s not worth to pay more than $10.000 for a very last piece from your list.
    They must have found a local craftmen in Vietnam to make that piece. In Vietnam, lacquered egg-shell craft is quite well known as a local produced, and they are not so expensive compare to that piece from LV. To me, people just pay for the name and not for the quality. I wonder how much LV pay for whoever made that piece. I am sure that they must have made it in my country Vietnam.
    Over priced and it won’t last ever!!!

    • trang

      Hahaha. I agree with you Lien

    • Maranda

      I think you are right, the VIP eggshell coasters were also made in Vietnam.

      • Graham

        Marc Jacobs talked about this bag in his interview for LV.com… I guess they found the last artist in France who still does this type of work. Apparently it’s a 250 year old technique. Still the price is absurd.

    • trilobites

      don’t need to have too much brain to think like that…. A children four years could know it. Of course all this prices are crazy. Is the only way that some people have to show his or her money. And show that they have more than others.. but more money, no more brain.

  • Jennifer C

    Love the monogram transparent! I love my name on the list for the clutch. Can’t wait.

    Ridiculous to waste your money on bags like this, I mean 4100, that is two mortgage payments for some, over a yrs worth of food, a car for a year, a great vacation……I think spending anything more than 150 on a bag and you can get 300/400 $ bags for 150 is stupid. Save your money, think about retirement and yes, enjoy the finer things in life, but personally i wouldnt waste thousands on a bag, calculate the days of your life (estimate) and divide the price by these days and then see how much you have spend per day on this bag….foolish and half of the women who carry these bags haven’t bought them, themselves or don’t have money because they think they need these things and do not know how to shop for the best with thrift in mind….do what you want with what you’ve got, im just saying, common sense and practicality does not exist in the decision making here…..and the quality is not that good…..

    • Sue

      Your right. These bags are for people who have money to burn & want to be noticed Like starlets, Ordinary people who try to own these are pitiful. The bags are not quality! I’ve seen them fall apart worse than a Wal-Mart bag. It’s just the name and the status symbol saying I can blow money like chicklets. The ones in this collection are nitvevrn meant to last. They are super trendy and just stupid. If I had money to burn I wouldn’t own one because it says more than anything ” I am insecure” “I need to be judged by what is on my arm” not realizing the judgement is not flattering.

    and don’t get me wrong, I love Louis, Im sure you could find a good “Vuitton” for 750………

    • AnoyMouSs

      I came on this website to compare retail prices to the price I just paid for my authentic Louis. The prices on this list puts me at a loss of words. I simply cannot fathom how someone would spend thousands on a bag that will become outdated next year. Yes, good quality is more expensive but somethings are outrageously ridiculous.
      Had my bag cost what the items on this list cost it would still be on display or someone else would own it.

    • Monique

      Don’t ever buy their bags, they have never been what they are worth. I can’t believe people these days are still buying their crap. It’s cheaper to fly in a designer of your own, and make your own bags, monogramed with your own initials these days.
