Chloë Sevigny x Louis Vuitton Alma BB

Chloë Sevigny x Louis Vuitton Alma BB: My Alma Mater

It’s been a while since the spotlight has been on the Alma, the Louis Vuitton bag that was originally called the Squire, then the Champs-Élysées. It wasn’t until it was finally christened the Alma that it became a success. Named after Place de L’Alma, a lush square in Paris where the Avenue Montaigne meets the Seine, it’s all about old-school elegance. With a shape inspired by the Art Deco movement that resembles a traditional bowling bag revamped into a ladylike style, it’s about as classic as a bag gets.

End the Year With a Bag

End the Year With a BAG!: Happy New Year

After a year of great collaborations (Rag & Bone! Mark Cross! Derek Lam!), I’m closing out the year with Barbie and Vogue China. As a little girl, I loved Barbie and had everything from Barbie’s Dreamhouse to her mobile home with a pool on the roof deck. It’s been so much fun to reunite with my childhood bestie! In time for New Year’s Eve, she has a miniaturized version of our Audrey jewel box, perfect for a glam night out with Ken and friends. (Note the Asian Barbie in my honor. Wish we had these when we were kids!) Read on for more bags you’ll want by your side when you welcome in the New Year – and that you’ll want to keep carrying for the rest of 2016.

Top 5 Undercover Logos: Leggo My Logo!

Not all logos are created equal, and I’m not just referring to my brands of preference. Anyone can showcase their signature ensigns loud and clear. But the bags that do it with beguiling shrewdness are the ones that really get our attention.

Louis Vuitton Resort 2016 Collection: Desert Flower

Palm Springs, with its casual, Southern California ease, is almost the last place you would expect the quietly reflective (and quintessentially French) Nicholas Ghesquière to show his newest collection for Louis Vuitton.
