Louis Vuitton these days is coming up with great designs, the highlight today is the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2010 Men’s Bag Collection and this collection can make anyone go speechless.
There are plenty of jokes about men carrying purses, but these bags are not to be mocked. Crafted by Men’s Studio Director Paul Helbers, under the Artistic Direction of Marc Jacobs, the collection is based on the ‘Bleisure’ lifestyle. This gives the right amount of comfort and formality which has been inspired by Vienna’s ‘artist wardrobe’. The leather is fully nourished by craftsmen with oils and natural wax to allow the bags to embellish with age. Either constructed entirely of leather or paired with a water-resistant taupe or charcoal canvas, the bags are inspired by military and utilitary vintage styles with a contemporary twist.
The tote is the primary source of inspiration this season with leather handles and hardware from the iconic Louis Vuitton Steamer bag. A German artist named Christian Schoeler collaborated with Paul to create some hand-painted totes and duffels with landscapes, forests and clouds, an ode to Viennese art students who roam the streets with their customized bags.
Louis Vuitton’s Mens Fall/Winter 2010-2011 Bag Collection, which is set to release on August 15, will feature three variants of the Shako series in the Reglisse color, namely Shako Sac Voyage ($4370), Shako Cabas XXL ($4370) and the Shako Cabas Bandoliere ($2800).

And finally, the Monogram Macassar series with Monogram Macassar Sac-a-Dos ($2800) and the Monogram Macassar Messenger GM ($2800).
