Asides crushing heavily on Lewis Hamilton, the British formula one race driver, I know next to nothing about racing and competitions as I do consider them sufficiently dangerous to not get involved in. But race has been brought close to familiar grounds now with the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 Race bag collection that were just recently released.
Louis Vuitton took inspiration from racing signature aesthetics -the checkered flag dovetails, the bright colours, and infused them on the bag with larger than usual Louis Vuitton logo and the brand’s signature Damier check. The overall effect is loud, fashion forward, eccentric and commensurate with racing tracks and cars.
Creative director of the brand, Nicolas Ghesquiere, experimented with bold color palettes and monograms and while at first glance, it all looks a bit too much and distracting but closer inspection gives it a somewhat quirky vibe we are sure would be appreciated by a lot of street style stars and celebrities.
Paired with monochrome outfits of white, black and nude hues, this bags would give your style the added vibe to keep you stylish and trendy!
Louis Vuitton race bags latest you may have seen it on the fashion show that has gone on. The motif is very interesting with a mix of colors that will make you appear more maximum. Louis Vuitton race bags ranging from alma, alma BB, neverfull, speedy, to petite malle clutch. It also presents the collections of Louis Vuitton Race Bandouliere. Really a collection of Louis Vuitton race bags are pretty awesome isn’t it?
Louis Vuitton recently presented their Cruise 2017 Collection at the Niterói Museum of Contemporary Arts in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The sporty collection pays homage to the city’s culture which presents vibrant colors, football and Grand Prix prints with a touch of Parisian flair. The star of the show is the Boombox Bag which is made of the Petite Malle bags which can even play music through Bluetooth. The iconic Speedy Bag features racing prints with Vuitton logo emblazoned on it and comes with a combination of the House classic materials such as the Damier, Epi and Monogram Canvas. The City Steamer gets an edgy update with a variety of pockets and rivets. Louis Vuitton introduces the Football print seen on the Steamer and Twist bags.
I've never been a NASCAR fan (or even seen a NASCAR race, for that matter), but I've always thought the league's team jackets, full of advertising patches and competing colors and lots of miscellaneous stuff, were kind of cool. They're sporty and exuberant, with little consideration for aesthetic gentility or traditional design norms. For Cruise 2017, Louis Vuitton took a page out of that playbook with the bold, bright Louis Vuitton Race Bags.
Racing's traditional checkered flag dovetails nicely with Louis Vuitton's signature signature Damier check, which gives the brand common aesthetic ground with motorsports that you wouldn't otherwise expect. From there, creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere experiments with color combinations and angles, capping things off with colorful monogram trim. It's a lot of look, as Tim Gunn would say, but, oddly enough, most of it works. That's especially true of the blue-based bags, which are more aesthetically pleasant than their orange counterparts.
I'm a little surprised to say it, but I kind of love the Louis Vuitton Race Bags? The blue Speedy, Neverfull and Alma BB Bags are pieces I could see myself incorporating into my mostly black wardrobe and enjoying a lot because they're so aggressively different than everything else out there right now. I have a feeling not all of you will agree, though, so feel free to roast me for it in the comments.

Last week you discovered what bags Louis Vuitton had to offer as far as their new Monogram Eclipse bags were concerned, which included everything from iconic classics to new styles given the Black/Greytreatment, which have been a hit since the day they launched. Today we turn our attention to the essentials we will use most every day, the small leather goods (or SLGs) that are as handsome as it gets when it comes to the vast array available now from this collection.
First up, a pair of the larger SLGs (shown above) that are big for a good reason. On the left, we’ve got the Pochette Voyage MM (SGD960), a 26 cm by 20 cm zip clutch that’s trimmed with cowhide leather on the top. Small as it might sound, it’s actually pretty roomy, and you can fit a lot in, wallet, mobile charger, keys, mints and then some.
On the right is the Zippy XL Wallet, for those who have too much to carry around on any given day, or (and more seriously), the perfect travel wallet. What’s on the inside? Well, for starters, 16 credit card slots, 3 gusseted compartments and 2 flat compartments for cash and receipts. Then there’s the extra large coin compartment, and even a pocket on the inside that will fit most smartphones, which is always a bonus. And when it’s priced at SGD1710, you really can’t argue with that, especially when it comes with so much on the inside.

Next we’ve got the 4 more SLGs that are truly everyday essentials. From the iPad Cover Box (SGD1710) that keeps your iPad safe along with 12 credit slots on the inside, it’s like the perfect mini workbag on the go, assuming of course you’re one who works extensively on the go.
Classics in their own right, here are the 3 wallets (from the left to right) that no man I know will not mind owning, from the Pocket Organiser (SGD455) to the Multiple Wallet (SGD670) and of course, theBrazza Wallet (SGD830). One’s a card case (with a flap), the other’s your standard classic billfold and lastly, the long wallet for those who believe in more is more.

And to round up the collection, here are some accompanying pieces you could consider if you’re all about the matchy-matchy when it comes to the things you own. From your standard keychain (SGD455) that you could attached your car (or house) keys to, to the 16 cm by 11 cm Box Clutch (SGD1350) that’s sort of your tiny wallet on the go (think lunch bag, but for boys), complete with credit card slots and flat pockets for cash.
Then there’s the Ribbon Cardholder Box and the Ribbon Cardholder, which I think will be extremely useful for those who work in corporate environments that require keycard access from point to point. Priced from SGD505, you can pick them all out now at Louis Vuitton boutiques across Singapore. Or follow this link and check out the full collection online, where you’ll find so much more available for sale from the new Monogram Eclipse collection.Accessories

Before the launch of Louis Vuitton’s much-anticipated iPhone7 andiPhone7Plus cases which should be out end of the year or early next, here are some other cases you could consider in the meantime. Ok not exactly cases, but folios, basically hardcover coated-canvas cases that wrap around your iPhone like a book.

Available in a wide variety of colours and designs from classics likeMonogram Canvas to the new Monogram Eclipse, it also comes in almost all the Damier hues. Then there are the Monogram Canvas ones that come with contrasting interiors, with colours like Blue, Pink and Yellow for those who would like that additional pop of colour.

Priced at SGD400 for the iPhone7 folios and SGD450 for the iPhone7Plusfolios, you’ll find them in limited quantities at Louis Vuitton boutiques across Singapore, from Marina Bay Sands to ION Orchard. My only complaint? While this would be perfect for those who use their smartphones like a normal person, this might not work for those whose lives revolve around social media, because the constant opening and closing of the cover might cause too much stress on the spine and leave unsightly creases in the long run.Fashion Trends
Louis Vuitton presents the Cruise 2017 Ad Campaign with new colors of the Capucines. And if you’ve been following us so far, the Capucines Bag is an uprising star; it sits next to the Speedy Bag in the future.
The Capcucines Bag has a flap – when you move the flap out, your bag will flaunt with the Monogram Flower. When you hide the flap inside, the gorgeous XL signature will appear.
Another colorful style that got out attention is the Louis Vuitton Twist Bag in Multicolor Orange, Blue and White. This combination is quite unique but looks fantastic. It’s just perfect with white clothing and styles, and especially ideal for the Summer.
With a 3D logo signature in the center and the beautiful shoulder chain, you can keep this bag for decades and it will still be in-style.
So which one of these new bags do you really love?
