Paying homage to the earliest days of the House, the Capucines takes its name from rue Neuve-des-Capucines where Louis Vuitton set up shop in 1854. The bag incorporates all of the elements of excellence in the making of fine leathergoods, which has been seen in Louis Vuitton’s Asnières workshops since 1892. This excellence is expressed in fine leathers, timeless designs, and unequalled know-how. Introducing the most luxurious version of the Capucines…
Rendered in rare and precious Crocodile skin, Capucines combines refined details, includng semi-rigid handle for hand, elbow or shoulder carry secured by jewel-like shiny golden brass rings, with a spacious and functional shape. Its distinctive flap can be worn in two ways: outside to reveal the outline of a quatrefoil clover Monogram flower or inside to show the LV initials. Inside the bag is lined in supple goatskin leather and features two large interior compartments, a zippered pocket and a flat pocket.
The contrast between the black sheen of the crocodile skin and the glint of the golden brass hardware is just breathtaking!
The Capucines in Crocodile comes in two sizes: MM (14.2″ x 9.1″ x 5.5″) and GM (15.7″ x 10.6″ x 6.3″). These are extremely rare pieces and are only available in select Louis Vuitton stores for approximately US$50,000.
