Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM now available in Epi Leather

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Its probably no secret that I’m not your biggest fan of the Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag design. It could well be that every girl and their mother is carrying it or that the knock-offs out number the genuine items. It could be that the LV monogram, classic as it is, is pretty much done to death.

So when I was told by fellow conspirator, LeGeeque that they were doing one in my favourite LV material – Epi Leather, my heart sank. Why?! I beseeched the skies. WHY!

But I saw it in person just this week and mauled it a little and suddenly, I had a little change of heart.

This was spotted at the Louis Vuitton store at Ion Orchard, Singapore. I had to admit that the colours were bright and eye catching and well, there’s that lovely epi leather!


The epi leather Neverfull comes only in the MM size which is the medium size. It is pretty large and can fit a ton and I felt somehow that the straps did feel a little more thick and sturdy compared to the canvas version.

The reason they now make the Neverfull in epi leather, I was told, is because LV has revamped the epi leather, making it softer, more pliable and lighter. The bag itself isn’t too heavy and yet its stiff enough that it doesn’t flop over the way the canvas version does.

Unlike the canvas version, the epi leather Neverfull comes with a detachable slim pouch that you can hook to a ring inside the bag, or detach it for use separately. Its like getting 2 for the price of 1 :P The colour of the interior cloth lining matches the colour of the leather outside, so the bright yellow one that caught my eye the most is just as bright on the inside.

Unlike the canvas version also, the epi Neverfull isn’t soft enough for you to reshape it to a more compact shape with the straps on the side. The straps therefore, are pretty much for show only. I tried, but its far too stiff, and the SA looked like she was about to have a fit if I even attempted folding the leather so I held off :P

There is a hook clasp to allow you to keep the bag closed, but its a bit too fiddly. All in all, I’d say that it is pretty much like many other open totes already available out there. There are some alternatives to the Neverfull here with the Michael Kors Jet Set tote scoring pretty high on the list. I’d say it still hits full marks for a relatively affordable and pretty leather tote. But if your pockets go deeper than a Michael Kors and you want to really stand out from the Neverfull toting crowd, then the Epi Neverfull MM it will be for you.

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013 Bag Names and Prices

Categories:Louis Vuitton

A series of columns, descending on the elegant angle of an escalator, traversing the horizontal of the catwalk and ascending again, formed the fundamental structure of the Spring/Summer 2013 presentation. Each look was a strict rectangle when considered from the perspective of an

architect’s elevation, interrupted on the horizontal at three levels, with the sleeve heads offering the only deviation from the straight and narrow. This strict template was inspired in part by the conceptual artist Daniel Buren and his work Les Deux Plateaux, a series of 260 columns of three different heights arranged in a grid within the great courtyard of the Palais Royal in Paris.
It was a marked contrast to the previous season, with the romantic making way for the mathematical. There were still flowers – although, silhouetted and abstracted, they were not immediately recognizable as such. But for the most part, decoration came in the form of strict checkerboard grids. This was the first ever Louis Vuitton collection where the monogram was nowhere to be seen; instead, the Damier pattern provided the House’s signature. Squares in differing colors and textures and at varying scales gave the clothes and accessories a starkly graphic quality.
For all its crisp, clean lines and bold blankness, the collection still included the labour-intensive embellishments for which Louis Vuitton is famous. The tiniest sequins ever produced were arranged by the thousand to create metallic surfaces, while slightly larger paillettes were stacked four-deep and stitched in precise grids to create geometric relief textures. ‘Tuffetage’, a technique taken from carpet-making, was embroidered on leather to create a flock-like effect.
A fundamental duality underpinned the collection: between the two colors of each grid; between shiny and matt textures; between presence and absence, in the case of the dresses with the cut-out squares. The LV outlet collection was presented on models in pairs to reinforce these oppositions. Artistic director Marc Jacobs had the image of two very different French icons of the 1960s, Françoise Hardy and Jane Birkin, in mind when creating the collection: Hardy always very covered up, Birkin always revealing plenty of flesh, but both always in long, simple clothes.
The rectilinear discipline extended to the bags and shoes. The Envelope and the Flat already had the requisite right angles, while the Speedy was re-engineered in square and cubic forms.

What’s More Important, A Quality Replica Handbag Or The Serial Numbers? Here’s The Truth About Date Codes…

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Replica Louis Vuitton Handbag

A lot of women write me in a panic because they’ve bought designer replica handbags online, and when they arrive they are missing the infamous date codes. The first thing I tell them is to relax! Serial numbers (called “Date codes”) are very complicated, and contrary to popular belief, not every designer replica handbags has one, and not every serial number has the same format. Don’t assume you have a bad replica just because they don’t have the serial number!

Many women get so caught up with the Serial numbers they forget about what really makes great designer replica handbags – the details! Stitching, coloring, perfect dimensions – that’s what it’s all about!

Nobody is going to ask to inspect the serial number of your bag, and if they do, tell them to bug off! That’s just rude. However, someone asks you what the serial number represents or you insist on showing it, for whatever reason, let me give you a little background info.

Replica Louis Vuitton Handbag

Some people think the Louis Vuitton serial number is like a top secret code or something, but fortunately, I happen to know the secret! Since 2007, their date codes work like this: the two letters that come first tell you the country where the bag was made. After that, there are 4 digits – the 1st and 3rd represent the week in which the bag was produced. The 2nd and 4th are the year. So, 1069 would be the 16th week of ’09. If you pull out a calendar and do the math, you find that this bag was made in April.
