For a new line of colorful bags, dubbed New Wave, Louis Vuitton found inspiration in the musical genre of the same name to revisit the joyful, colourful spirit of the Eighties in an unexpected way.
This collection is rooted in the art of travel that sealed the House’s reputation as soon as it was founded in 1854. In particular, one trunk was decorated with a graphic, multicoloured motif that undulated like a wave. From this historical detail comes the subtle quilted design of the Louis Vuitton New Wave line.
New Wave bags come in a soft, supple lambskin and is available in two main silhouettes. The first is the Chain Bag which comes in two sizes, a PM (SGD3100) and MM (SGD3500), a versatile shape that can be carried in a multitude of ways. Wear it over the shoulder, across the body, or double the chains up and have it sit nicely under the arm. The second, a bigger version known as the Chain Tote (SGD3850), is one that’s actually a great piece for work considering it comes in a trapezoid shape that’s roomy enough at the base for all your daily essentials. Cute, charming and a total mood uplifter, the New Wave family of bags come in exciting new colors that include Ecariate (Red), Malibu Green, Smoothie Pink, Snow (White), as well as the staple Noir (Black) for those looking for something safe.
