For Fall/Winter 2013-2014, the focus of the collection is on the luxurious quality and treatment of the materials produced by the savoir-faire of Louis Vuitton ateliers. The house’s Monogram and Damier canvas are nowhere to be seen on the catwalk; instead, its three iconic bag shapes have been realized in supple fabrications and softer constructions to emphasise their more sensuous and feminine aspects.
The Pochette Accessoire, the Lockit and the Speedy boast resplendent textures such as marabou, curled goose feather and waxed crocodile. The mink Speedys have handles carved in exotic, aromatic woods that have been antiqued by hand; the handles on the python bags are made from horn; and the signature metal chain on the Pochette Accessoire has been adorned with precious stones.
