I say this with confidence: When it comes to mastery of the craft and virtuosity of divine execution, Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo are unparalleled. In a most emotional Fall 2014 show, the pair made their inspiration felt by each and every onlooker: unconventional women deeply rooted in a moment of change.

It reminds me of the YSL logo clasp. The resemblance is actually uncanny, as it’s essentially the same concept. But something about Louis Vuitton’s initialized closure reads just a tad more grown-up.
This isn’t your average bow-shaped bag. This is a bow that has morphed into a cool, futuristic style, ensuring your basic black clutch gets in on the excitement this season.
