Just a year ago, counting in the fashion seasons, a newcomer Nicolas Ghesquiere had a long-awaited debut at famous Louis Vuitton. Presented at Paris Fashion Week, his first ready-to-wear collection for fall/winter 2014 was a real transformation of this brand after Marc Jacobs’s long 16 years as a creative director. As expected, the collection attracted a lot of media and public attention, but no one knew that Ghesquiere put on the runway new model of handbag which will soon enough become a must-have.
To sum it up, Petite Malle was born, a mini version of the iconic Louis Vuitton trunk. Unlike the other Louis Vuitton bags, Petite Malle has possibly the most interpretations – from those with the monogram pattern to the graphic markings and leather trimming. The bag can be worn as a cross-body or a clutch which makes it a desirable day-to-evening statement piece.
The mini cross-body hit the street really soon becoming a real object of desire among fashionistas and bag collectors. Price from £3000 for this little beauty apparently did not bother them much, something that most can only dream of.
