Heritage, fine craft and innovation have always been at the heart of Louis Vuitton.
This is a truism that has always been underscored by one of the world’s most revered luxury houses, in highlighting its legacy of uncompromising quality and craftsmanship for the past 167 years.
Savoir-faire literally means know-how, the sort of time-honored and exacting craftsmanship by artisans that’s passed on to generations. At Louis Vuitton, behind each design lies a complex creative process and profound savoir-faire. Each bag is made of intricate elements assembled only by the House’s most experienced artisans.
The Capucines, like a life-long companion, is a thing of beauty that can be handed down to generations. Inspired by the House’s legendary trunks, its elegant design veils the complexity of its construction and creation.
Named after the place where the namesake founder started his métier as a trunk maker, the Capucines’ handle rings feature rivets that are a nod to the classic Louis Vuitton trunk. The iconic Louis Vuitton Monogram that was first used on trunks is also exemplified in its LV hardware, the bag’s petal-shaped flap and the four-leaf-clover-like metal Monogram flower charm.
Another classic of the House is the Twist bag, introduced at the 2015 Cruise show. Its most recognizable feature is the bold LV-shaped Twist lock hardware, which is creative director Nicolas Ghesquière’s reinterpretation of an archival clutch called the Epi Trapeze.
The Coussin—literally, Cushion, owing to its padded surface made of soft lamb and calfskin—is the latest addition to the House’s collection and the most coveted bag since its debut in Spring Summer 2021.
It is a playful combination of elegance and personality with its Monogram-embossed leather body and thick chain hardware. Effortless and fashionable at the same time, it lends edge and allure even to the simplest outfit, whether it’s worn cross-body, carried under the arm or as a chain baguette.
Timeless yet ever-changing
At Louis Vuitton, savoir-faire also means forward-thinking innovation. This is personified in the House’s most recognizable bags—the Capucines, the Twist and the Coussin—that are incarnated in a myriad of different colors, patterns and materials each season.
Combined with timeless beauty and contemporary details, these bags are a testament to Louis Vuitton’s dedication to savoir-faire, impeccable quality and most of all creativity.
