For every fashionista there are two incredibly exciting times of the year, Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. It’s the time of year that the new collections are released and twice a year, every year I wait with anticipation at what my most favourite designers will be launching as their new collections.
Louis Vuitton has and always will be one of my favored handbag designers, from humble roots to global domination, and the Louis Vuitton World Tour Collection has surpassed all my expectations and is in my opinion, one of the best collections to date. Colorful, fun and fresh yet total respecting the brands history.
The World Tour collection was conceived by the brands Creative Director, Nicolas Ghesquieres, who was inspired by the travels of Louis Vuitton’s grandson, Gaston-Louis Vuitton. He was an avid traveler who collected over 3000 hotel publicity stickers and labels, which globetrotters proudly affixed to their luggage, whist journeying across the globe. His collection was even published into a book, “Vintage Hotel Labels from the collection of Gaston-Louis Vuitton.
Fall 2016 sees the reinvention of the brands classic monogram canvas but with the twist, the addition of the “hotel labels”. These labels are brightly coloured and placed in a random fashion over the main body of the bags, just as they would have been during Gaston-Louis Vuitton’s own travels.
Cleverly only 1000 hotels stickers have been used in the collection, which paves the way for a second or even third collection in the future.
The stickers do work exceptionally well with the brands travel bags, such as the Keepall, but have also been added to the iconic monogram bags, including the Alma, the Speedy and the Neverfull and if the monogram canvas isn’t your thing don’t worry, the World Tour Collection will soon incorporate more bags form the Louis Vuitton range.
If like me, you wish to get your hands on one or more handbags from the World Tour collection, do not start sweating when thinking of convincing your better half you do need those bags, that they are a great investment and that it is worth risking trouble with your banker…
Simply do like me, go for true seven mirror image replica of the genuine World Collection bags! Those sell at a fraction of the price: the deal is so sweat that you will not resist buying more than one.
It is now time to look like an elite globetrotter and carry a replica Louis Vuitton World Tour Collection Keepall next time you check in at a Four Season’s hotel. And I doubt the doorman will ever mention the trick.
