Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2012 Bag Names and Prices

Photographed by Stéphane Muratet

The clock struck 10. In a cloud of steam, a gleaming locomotive pulled into the station. From the first carriage – its smart black and royal blue livery painted in golden letters with the name of Louis Vuitton – stepped 47 of the most glamorous travelers anyone is ever likely to see. After the hotel elevators, after the fairground carrousel, Marc Jacobs’ fantasy for Louis Vuitton took a new trip with a Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection that was at once a playful nod back to the House’s past and a provocative forwards to the future of fashion.

The show’s standouts were the bags – not to mention the uniformed, white-gloved porters who carried them, following each glamorous traveler at a respectful distance. To Louis Vuitton’s historic hat boxes, luxuriously revisited in crocodile, was added an extraordinary array of bags in which each traveler might – in the tradition of the House – pack her most treasured possessions. Appropriately, a suitcase bag, its clean lines mirroring the simple silhouette of the clothes, was rendered in buffed ostrich leather or a Damier patchwork, while a spacious gusset bag and a reworked Speedy came with the Monogram pattern in sequins on wool or the Stephen Sprouse leopard print on fur. Monogram canvas was trimmed with crocodile on a neo-doctor’s bag with a large round buckle. This new signature of the season also peeped out from the long dip-dyed goat hair covering a neat square handbag.

  • Did you know that you could buy underwear on eBay? This was news to me until I discovered that the only place to find my all-time favorite, now-discontinued bra was from an eBay retailer. The thought of having to actually find something new was daunting, and that was how I found myself surfing the web in hopes of discovering some store with a leftover cache.leopard print suitcase
