On the prowl for a chic summer tote? Look no further. Louis Vuitton has come up with the most festive bag of the most carefree season. Inspired by the sun-soaked foliage of the Mediterranean, their Summer 2013 collection is a celebration of blue skies, beaming rays, and unabashed optimism.
The freshest interpretation of the collection comes by way of the newest Monogram Vernis tote. A peppy vision has doused their quintessential leather with a gorgeous explosion of abstract print and vivid color. While all the classic Louis Vuitton elements are there – the nude straps, stitched to perfection, and of course, their trademark allover monogram – these painterly blossoms breathe new life into an old faithful. It comes in two styles: the north-south Catalina NS and the east-west Catalina BB, and your choice of two colors, Grand Bleu and Rose Indien. Let Louis be the first to remind you this summer: life’s too short to not take time and smell the roses…or carry a tote that lifts your mood.
Catalina BB, $1,700, and Catalina NS, $2,730, at Louis Vuitton.
